Truth is in favor of you and me; for the truth of our enemies whom we have been serving here in the U.S.A. for over 400 years (whom we did not know to be our enemies by nature) is the truth that the Black Man must have knowledge of to be able to keep from falling into the deceiving traps that are being laid by our enemies to catch us in their way which is opposed to the way of righteous of whom we are members. ~ The Honorable Elijah Muhammad

U.S.-Israel furious over ICC War Crimes probe for murder of over 2,000 Palestinians

PressTV-Israel furious over International Criminal Court (ICC) crimes probe
Israel has expressed outrage over a move by the International Criminal Court (ICC) to launch a preliminary investigation into Tel Aviv’s war crimes against Palestinians in the besieged Gaza Strip.
Israeli Prime Minister Benjamin Netanyahu said in a statement that he rejected the "scandalous" ICC decision, claiming the court has no jurisdiction over Palestine as it is not a state.
Tens of thousands of Palestinians were killed or injured in Israel's war on Gaza last summer. 
Netanyahu described the probe as "absurd" and claimed that Israel “fights terror while maintaining international law and has an independent justice system."
US blasts ICC war crimes probe of Israel
The United States has joined Israel in condemning the International Criminal Court decision to open a preliminary probe into possible war crimes committed against Palestinians, blasting it as a 'tragic irony'.
ICC prosecutor Fatou Bensouda said her office would conduct an 'analysis in full independence and impartiality' into alleged war crimes by Israel, including those committed during last year's Gaza offensive.
Her decision comes after Palestine formally joined the ICC earlier this month, allowing it to lodge war crimes and crimes against humanity complaints against Israel as of April.
Nearly 2200 Palestinians and 73 Israelis were killed during the 2014 war in Gaza.
US and Israel criticise ICC war crimes probe - Middle East - Al Jazeera English
The United States has joined Israel in condemning a decision by the International Criminal Court (ICC) to open a preliminary probe into possible war crimes committed against Palestinians, describing the move as a "tragic irony".
The US criticised the decision late on Friday, saying it opposed actions against its ally Israel as "counterproductive to the cause of peace".
"It is a tragic irony that Israel, which has withstood thousands of terrorist rockets fired at its civilians and its neighbourhoods, is now being scrutinised by the ICC," Jeff Rathke, the US State department spokesman, said in a statement.

International Criminal Court opens war crimes inquiry into Israel - SFGate
Prosecutors at the International Criminal Court opened a preliminary examination Friday into possible war crimes committed in the Palestinian territories, the first formal step that could lead to charges against Israelis.
An announcement of the inquiry by the court’s chief prosecutor, Fatou Bensouda, came two weeks after the Palestinians, over the strong objections of Israel and the United States, signed the Rome Statute, the treaty that created the court in The Hague.
Bensouda’s announcement, which had been expected, did not necessarily indicate that she would pursue charges in her investigations of actions by Israel that the Palestinians assert to be war crimes.
