The International Court of Justice (ICJ) has denied requests to have Israel's genocide charge dismissed. In the midst of the continuing conflict in Gaza, South Africa filed a lawsuit, and judges at The Hague rendered an interim decision. Meanwhile, in response to the decision of the court, Israel Prime Minister Benjamin Netanyahu issued a statement on X that reads, "Israel's commitment to international law is unwavering. Equally unwavering is our sacred commitment to continue to defend our country and defend our people." Like every country, Israel has an inherent right to defend itself. The vile attempt to deny Israel this fundamental right is blatant discrimination against the Jewish state, and it was justly rejected. The charge of genocide leveled against Israel is not only false, it’s outrageous, and decent people everywhere should reject it, it further added.
