Quick Fact Check

Bloodthirsty Liberal calls the International Criminal Court “jew-hating” and says “they’ve never heard a complaint against Israel they haven’t embraced.” In fact, the International Criminal Court has never embraced any complaints against Israel. If the prosecutor did receive any complaints against Israel, he summarily rejected them. (Probably because Israel has not ratified the Rome Statute that created the court.)

These inane casual accusations of antisemitism from people who don’t know what they are talking about really need to be put to rest.

UPDATE: In trying to “correct” this post, Bloodthirsty Liberal digs a deeper hole. Apparently, Bloodthirsty Liberal does not understand that the International Criminal Court and the International Court of Justice are TWO DIFFERENT THINGS. Rather, the writer refers multiple times to something called the International Criminal Court of Justice and conflates the work of the ICC with the ICJ. True, both are located in the same city, but that is about all they have in common.
