ICEJ Denounces Hague Court’s Ruling Regarding Israel

By: David R. Parsons, ICEJ Vice President & Senior Spokesman 

The International Christian Embassy Jerusalem expresses its utter dismay at the ruling of the International Court of Justice in The Hague on Friday, January 26, 2024, concerning South Africa’s application under the Genocide Treaty against Israel.

The world was shocked and repulsed by the evil atrocities committed by Hamas against innocent Israelis last October 7, and today’s ruling by the International Court of Justice only compounds the shock and pain of that dark day. That the wide majority of justices on the Court would sit calmly at the reading of its rulings on the eve of January 27, set aside by the international community as International Holocaust Remembrance Day, only deepens our disappointment at the world’s betrayal of the Jewish state and people. This decision inverts justice and is built on decades of the United Nations and all its forums becoming the world’s most cunning purveyors of antisemitism. These global institutions were founded with honorable intentions, including to prevent a repeat of the Nazi genocide against the Jews, yet these very forums are now placing Israel in grave danger by giving credence to these outrageous claims it is committing genocide in Gaza.

“Woe to those who call evil good, and good evil; Who put darkness for light, and light for darkness,” warned the Hebrew prophet Isaiah (5:20). Israel is justly defending its citizens from massacres, rapes, mutilations and torture, yet it is now rebuked by the World Court, even while Hamas and other armed Palestinian militias are let completely off the hook. Nonetheless, we trust the Lord God to keep and protect Israel as He has promised (Psalm 121:4; Jeremiah 31:10).
