Britain’s foreign minister has made his first public comments concerning the biased investigation by the International Criminal Court into Israel’s alleged ‘war crimes’, although his late response still leaves a lot to be desired from the UK government.

UK Foreign Secretary Dominic Raab was speaking to the Board of Deputies this week when he said he would work “publicly and privately” to address concerns that multilateral organisations like the ICC do not stigmatise Israel.

We would have hoped for a stronger condemnation of the ICC from our government while many nations have spoken out strongly against the ICC decision, including Germany, France, Australia and of course the United States all condemning the decision, the UK has sadly been noticeably muted on the issue. Raab’s comments leave a lot to be desired.

As Israel’s Prime Minister Benjamin Netanyahu said this week, the ICC’s decision is “absurd… undiluted anti-Semitism and the height of hypocrisy.” We completely agree and expect our government to do all it can to stop the ICC from taking such a biased investigation against our ally Israel which works tirelessly to not only defend its citizens but also act ethically when dealing with its enemies. Something that cannot be said of the terrorist organisations that seek Israel’s destruction.
