"It's important we don't have a functioning human rights commission we have this body that obsessively focuses only on israel now. The icy does not obsessively focus on this role in fact if there's been criticism of the icc until now it's been that it's focused almost entirely on african conflicts and a few other third world areas. But that's partly because of of the the legal structure of of this court where cases can only arrive there when they can't be investigated or prosecuted sufficiently by the courts have member states but but behind the legal structure right this Fantasy of dragging the jews into international tribunal improving that they're the real. Nazis has been bubbling In in certain circles four decades. That's the thing that the prime minister. Even if his choice of words indelicate is is referring to and the countries around the world. That would like very much to have a functioning. Icc and don't want to see it turned into a something like the un human rights council you see why these these These sort of highly realistic arguments are so tempting to them right. I told you all the european countries have latched onto this thing of well. Palestine's not a state so it can't refer cases so please let's end the discussion right away. Why the in such a rush. Because they don't they don't want to see the destroyed the way the un human rights commission was actually believe in it. Yes but they also don't want to be coming out and defending israeli settlement activities or defending israeli military actions in gaza because they they agree with the sentiment that what. Israel's doing wrong wrongly oppose the settlement enterprise rate but at the same time same time they would like for for much bigger reasons. They would like a function i seen. They believe very strongly that national criminal court is good and that an international criminal court that becomes another. Human rights commission becomes another place for kind of politically based bullying of of one country is going to empty it of any content. Now there are many countries that have interest in the un human rights commission being so empty particularly big human rights. Abusers the fact. There's no functioning. Unhrc makes sense for countries whose names. I won't mention right now. There are also countries that by the way would like there to be not not to have ic- for four european governments And for the ethos of of many of the professional class of european diplomats a functioning.

"I'm sure that somebody's working on the demonstrative case that they that they think they could get. But it's it's a bit harder to do. Those are the challenges in these two in these two kinds of cases in the first case it should challenge from the perspective of the prosecutors is proving that israel hasn't actually investigated it and i think that will be insurmountable challenge although i don't wanna predictions in the second one of the challenges finding a real crime and you can attach to a person that you can charge having committed it. Thank you so-called you've given me so much more understanding insight of what's happening so i really appreciate that so prime minister netanyahu for example. I came out with a statement. Something along blind. This is basically antisemitism. Can you talk to us about why. He's he's feeling so persecuted by this why this is what what is exceptional about the way that behaving towards israel leads people to to make that claim okay so this is not a legal question and i think to understand why someone would feel that this is a manifestation of antisemitism we have sort of exit the bounds of this discussion as a purely legal discussion and and think sort of more broadly culturally intellectually. What is happening here The the desire to see the jews and the jewish state as the real war criminals when everybody knows what that word means rivaled is. We'll just say war criminal means to most people's ears. Nazi desire to see israel the jews and the jewish state as the real nazis as the ones who are the real war. Criminals has been a part of the discussion about the conflict that israel has had for decades particularly in europe it's one of these very psychologically transparent processes transparent that somehow thinks it's visible. It's been a part of Particularly how opponents of israel talked about the war in lebanon and nineteen eighty two and then later the first fatah and pretty much every armed confrontation since often with very explicit Comparisons to the holocaust and to The behavior of the nazis in the nineteen thirties and forties and often just hinted in supplemented And that is the larger even if it's not the legal question which is what you guys were asking in the first twenty minutes discussion. That's a larger intellectual process that has been happening here and what's happening with the icc and with the whole concept of of international criminal law is exactly the process. We've seen happen already with things like human rights or or global anti-racism where something that's absolutely important absolutely crucial for the international system and by the way something. That often has very many Well-meaning jews who are behind it gets hijacked by the cause of of anti-israel politics now. It hasn't happened yet but the trajectory here to watch something important like the ic turn into another forum for this pathological israel hatred. We'll be very tragic. The comparison i want us to think about something like the united nations human rights commission because the international order actually needs a human rights commission..

"If a relevant state was unable for whatever reason to investigate and prosecute the case in question now what has happened The most recent development that's made headlines here is a few decisions on the part of the prosecutor as israel is not a member of the icy see. Israel signed the rome statute but then didn't ratify the treaty then israel is not really relevant for the proceedings of the ict. But what the court has has done is it has accepted that A state of palestine exists. Even if it's borders are undefined. It's roughly in the west bank and gaza and east jerusalem and therefore alleged crimes that took place in the west bank and gaza. East jerusalem are within the remainder of this court as long as a state that might refer them couldn't prosecute them of could not could not investigate or prosecute these crimes on its own. So what has happened is that the palestinian authority has referred to the i c c a to matt two big categories of of issues one having to do with israeli military actions in gaza in particular in two thousand fourteen in two thousand eighteen and one having to do with settlement particularly in the west bank from the perspective of the ic. They can now begin a legal process there because those allegations answer the two requirements that would make qualify for the ic number one. They are acts that took place in the territory of a member state of the i c right because the icu is saying these reactions that took place in the west bank and gaza and the west bank and gaza are part of the state of palestine which is a signatory of the rome statute and number two that the state in question is unable or hasn't investigator prosecuted them on its own and so it's been referred to them things that have aperture now from go ahead. Yes just ask questions. So it's interesting because you said the palestinian authority of the ones that brought the case before the icc as right but if they and that's and you said the gaza and the west bank east jerusalem are considered to be this. This palestinian state a- palestinian region or something like that but if the palestinian authority doesn't have jurisdiction in that sense of how does that work with gaza walks relationship with in that sense well again. They claim of palestinian statehood is really problematic here and most of the countries that have objected to this move have relied on that argument and the reason why they rely on. That argument is one li. It's good argument but two it allows them to not have to say anything about the allegations themselves because there's very few countries right now that want to make any comment about either any controversial israeli military action or about the settlement question. They preferred not to have to engage in that argument at all. So you see the opposition to this move in europe and in the united states. United states is a bit from because it's not a member of the icy But you see the opposition to this move. Particularly in european countries has been on that strict narrow issue which is there isn't a status of statehood for the palestinian authority..

"Grab as the one we were the victim of like atrocities of the nazis Those are the kind of the crime the icc should prosecute and of course it's not as so he's always this approach that we are the victim and therefore we can not the perpetrator and then if we tried to see israel as a traitor. Then it go back to being not semitism to go back the victim framing so this is another kind of argument which is very strong because the ministry of for enough on its facebook. I dunno. I receive it in france so i saw it in french. And you can really see the image of auschwitz. You know of The the nazi camps. And then you have those statements so it's an emotionally they use picture and you know they use. It's a very strong. They of course they will not show picture of palestinians behind by they use This picture of auschwitz for on positioning and what's interesting in. What sharon says is that these different attacks actually showed that israel is still somehow in the game. it hasn't completely decided to destroy the court head on so we asked both yell. And and sharon is there a chance that the israeli authorities will actually start cooperating with the court well. I think it's clear that formerly the government is not going to cooperate. And i think that's even being said by government. It's even if they hadn't it's unclear because any formal cooperation is in some sort of implicit acceptance of legitimacy of the of the process of things decision and this is something that the government of israel commodity or to do that does not mean that it might not conveyed messages through third parties of talk extensively americans that were submitted with To requests under article ninety three the question of their state of palestine. What is stemming tori. Some of these americans story. I probably prompted by the government without detracting. From from the authority. Responsibility of those submitted directly whether israel will impose sanctions on the icy sea as the us. Osama i don't know Does not have the power that the the us does. Not much of the us has the power that the us plans to have but of But it does raise interesting questions if we do not know if the state is not call rates with regard to its own Potential indictee would cooperating providing information about palestinian. And i think here the use of third parties would would probably be simplest so so i don't expect to see any direct involvement by the government. So sometimes you very open cooperation and sometimes we have you have unofficial coporation okay so when we saw the un factfinding mission. So it's not the acc the goldstone funding mission of two thousand and nine or the professor schabas. One of two thousand and fourteen so officially israel was not cooperating. The the the the committee was not allowed to come in. But unofficially they were cooperating..

"We're just going to cover a few of them. She points to the israeli accusation that the court is using double standards The israeli government says that the has decided not to prosecute for example syria where they've been serious crimes but of course as we know that misses the point that the court actually do anything unless a situation is referred to it again. Very broad brush stroke stuff here and just criticizing like that doesn't negate the idea that the shoot actually put on people on trial that it can another argument that israel raises is that the icy is not really designed for democratic states. They have a rule of law. They say functioning legal system in israel. So they don't really need the icc because it's a court of last resort so israel's kind of placing itself off category for the icc. We don't need it. We have a functioning legal system. We're doing everything we should. And sharon says that she got an immediate reaction video from the israeli ministry of foreign affairs in her facebook feed just after the icc decision that uses a number of these different lines and also what she calls the victimhood argument. This is more an emotional argument We really go to the very basic feeling of victimhood and of anti-semitism So it's to say you know. This court was created a prosecuted crimes. Grab as the one we were the victim of like atrocities of the nazis Those are the kind of the crime the icc should prosecute and of course it's not as so he's always this approach that we are the victim and therefore we can not the perpetrator and then if we tried to see israel as a traitor.

We're seeing this especially in southeastern europe where some countries haven't even started mass vaccinations one small country in the balkans though is ahead of the pack. Here's the world's lydia amana do. That country is serbia while its neighbors have struggled to procure any covid nineteen shots.

Now we've got us presented cover vaccine's dinka gone each lives in the city of novi sad in the north. He's a professor at the university there and independent journalists. He recently got his second dose of the pfizer. Vaccine to be good for me and my family opted for pfizer. Serbia might be the only country in europe that's allowing citizens to pick which vaccine. they want. They do it on a government website today. One in five people there have received at least one shot and some five hundred thousand in a country of about seven million have gotten both. This is a really big success for serbia. Its neighbors are benefiting to just today ten thousand vaccines arrived in bosnia. They were a donation from serbia which also gave montenegro and north macedonia their first vaccines those countries and others in the region on the eu and the international kovac scheme serbia turned to its powerful friends in the east. The vast majority of the in the country today are made by china. Sign of farm. Dr drago soft popovich. A public health consultant in belgrade recently opted for that one because he could get the quickest. And i did the same thing for my mom. Who is eighty-five. Popovich spent most of his career with the un working on public health initiatives around the world. He's delighted there are shots available for people in his country but he says the way the government has rolled them out giving people the option to choose fueled a little like a political ballot. Those who supports russians would for the russian vaccine. You know those who some sympathies for chinese support to serbia would prefer the chinese vaccines.

"War crimes in the gaza strip east jerusalem and west bank. Here's israeli prime minister. Benjamin netanyahu's reaction to that investigates israel for fake walk runs. This is pure antisemitism. Netanyahu called the decision by the icy sea a perversion of justice. He said israel like the. Us isn't a party to the treaty that established the court and doesn't consider itself to be under its jurisdiction. The us agrees the state department. Said it has serious concerns about the icees ruling. The administration said quote. We do not believe. The palestinians qualify as a sovereign state. Therefore the reasoning goes. It has no standing with the sec. Here's catherine gallagher again. It's not what. I would want to see from a administration that has held out as one of its priorities Human rights has said it wants to re engage in the quote unquote international. Legal world. order So that is. This is not in line with its stated principles. It stated priorities. But many israelis are firm in their belief that the international legal world order is deeply flawed and herzberg is with ngo monitor a jerusalem based research institute. She filed an amicus brief. In the icees case on the palestinian territories i think for the israeli public is a big deal in that israelis always feel like we're under attack from The un and from international bodies are always. You'd have p people are always like going after us as opposed to other places where you know. Human rights issues are much more intense than in more horrible with this decision. The ic could also investigate war crimes committed by palestinians but hertzberg says this feels personal for israelis because almost everyone in israel has to serve stint in the military. So there's a remote possibility. Any of them could be arrested if there is an icy investigation. Different hey my uncle or my you know my neighbor by son. That could potentially be at risk. Still stephen rapp says the us sanctions on the icy sea must end. Rap represented the us at the ic for six years says president obama's ambassador at large for war crimes. He says the sanctions imposed by the trump administration are inappropriate and unprincipled using this tool of thread threatening. It's like holding a gun to a judge's head and so it's an ineffective tactic and it's a counterproductive one And that's the position that we Take should take netanyahu. We have your back But that doesn't mean that we're going to engage in extortion on your behalf. We're gonna we're gonna use the powerful tools that we have to protect you and that might not even be necessary. Icy prosecutor fatou. Ben souda hasn't opened a case against israelis and may not because she'll soon be replaced with a newly elected prosecutor. As for the biden administration. Stephen unwrap says it needs to show the court that the us has already sufficiently investigated itself for atrocities in afghanistan. There haven't been convictions but rap says the icc doesn't require them and obviously we need the hold people to account and and there were some processes the did that they weren't perfect. But i think they pass muster. But that's what this comes down to web says if the icy still decides the us's internal investigation wasn't good enough the us can always go back and investigate further for the world. I'm rupa shenoy. The biden administration announced new sanctions against russia. Today they're targeted at specific individuals. The ones involved in the poisoning and imprisonment of russian opposition politician alexei navalny. This marks the first direct action taken by the biden white house against russia andrea. Kendall taylor joins us. She's with the center for a new american security and is the director of their transatlantic security program. First of all andrea remind us what alexei navalny situation is and what the latest news is today. The current situation is a russian government. Attempted to kill alexei. Nepali using a chemical agent called nova choke were unsuccessful in their attempted assassination and navalny had recuperated in germany. He then attempted to return to russia in order to continue with his efforts. In opposition to the kremlin and upon his arrival was arrested by the russian government and is now in a prison just outside. Moscow explained the reasoning behind. Why the us government is a now sanctioning. People certain government officials in russia in connection with his poisoning. Well the united states has legislation on the books called become going biological weapons legislation dates back to the time of the iraq war that necessitates requires that the united states sanctions governments. That use chemical weapons. I think what's interesting here too. Is that the administration has signaled that it is going beyond what is required in the chemical and biological weapons legislation and going after specific individuals that were involved in the attempted assassination attempted poisoning of mr navalny. So andrey you say biden going beyond the sanctions required here with these targeted sanctions are targeted sanctions effective. Do they actually affect the russian government's behavior. I think that's one of the most hotly debated and contested question in the russia community. And in this case we have not yet seen evidence of a significant change in putin's behavior and the behavior of the russian government. And i do think that's why we see the biden administration. Also doubling down on efforts to increase our in resilience. It is important particularly in these cases of democracy and human rights abuses that the united states does all that this is clearly out of bounds but there is a recognition. I think that it will be difficult to change the putin regimes behavior and so the biden administration has talked a lot about how we can increase our resilience and the health of our lady and the democracies of our allies and partners in part to make the actions that the putin regime takes less effective no matter who's targeting these sanctions. What is the risk that these sanctions are counterproductive. And just lead to a tit for tat or standoff with russia just escalating already frosty relationship. I think in the of the united states. There's not a lot of leverage that russia has.

Future of the Labour Party, ICC Investigation, Black-Jewish Relations
"Liam whore is the Europe editor for moment magazine. It has been covering Labor's antisemitism awesome scandal since two thousand fifteen. He joins us now to help us understand. What's next for that party for British Jews and for the United Kingdom Liam? Thank you so much for joining us. I thank you for inviting me for the most part analysts are chalking up. Labour's defeat to having the wrong message on Brexit but there is is no doubt that Jeremy Corbyn. The Labour leader was historically unpopular. And no doubt that a part of that unpopularity was due to the anti eighty. Semitism that he let grow in the party. Are there grumblings on the far left that Jews are responsible for his defeat. And that's something that British Jews are worrying about. I think what we've seen since the election is people on the far left at Labor constituency meetings and online researching the British Jewish Institutions. Such as the Board of Deputies or indeed the chief rabbi Were in fact stories or conservatives I should say and innocent intervening in the election on their side. That's what he wanted to the things that the board of Deputies hope that the future Labour leader will expunge from the and that is one reason why they've come forward with the ten pledges in recent days. You mentioned the list of ten pledges that the Board of Deputies the kind of umbrella Ella Organisation for British Jews that the Board of Deputies released just a couple of days ago they basically say that these are the ten things or perhaps the first ten things the Labor Party needs to adopt needs to do in order to heal its relationship with the Jewish community. And we don't need to go through them one by one but broadly what are these ten pledges calling calling for. Well as you say broadly the first thing is that Outstanding Cases Anti Semitism in the Party needs to be resolved and the discipline under reprocessed to have to be made independent again and sh- interference from the leadership team sort of around. Jeremy Corbyn in this process must come to an end thereafter. What's I think? What's important folder? The board is to reestablish a working relationship with the leader of your party after all when a function is to be a conduit between the panoply of organizations they represent and and the government Foreign bodies and so forth and finally just add that one of the things they want to see done is that the full I h Ra the definition of Anti Semitism. With all of these examples applauses will be introduced and used in disciplinary cases within the party. That was a major eric. Eric disputes within the party last year or earlier this year. And that's one of the things I want to get done here at. AJC We're very proud of having been a part of authoring during the era definition but for our listeners who aren't familiar with the definition and why it's so important. Can you just say a word about that. Well because of dispute within the party I should say making making more specific is that People on the far left of the party were concerned that this definition would prevent them from Criticizing sizing Israel or Israeli policy. Which of course? He's not well. The definition does he's indicate ways in which rhetoric concerning Israel Israel can tip over into antisemitism I believe for example if people would say that the actions of the Israeli government towards what's the Palestinians in some way resemble the actions of Not Towards Jews in Europe in the nineteen forties So really they had nothing to worry about. But this is all tied to a much larger augmented. It was rambling on throughout the entirety of Jeremy Comex leadership of the Liberal Party concerning anti Israel rhetoric break and wearing that becomes at. You haven't ISM or for example. If someone challenging British Jews were to somehow hold them accountable for the actions actions of the Israeli government. I think that would also be seen as anti Semitic under the IRA definition which is really important. Considering the way that often we've seen across Europe and perhaps in Britain specifically people tried to do that. Try to discredit jus. I think there's a slur that has cropped up in the UK. Zayas people who you you know. They're interested in defaming and demeaning. They don't really have any way to do it except to try to tie them to Israel so I think it's important that the Labor Party adopts the definition in order to make very clear to its constituents that that kind of thing is anti Semitic well quite an in recent days we have an example of that which is that There's no sort of I would say online activists By the name of Rachel cousins. Who goes by the alias? Rachel Swindon who has a following of tens of thousands of people on twitter. It's unclear whether she is or is not in fact a member of the party but she's nonetheless very close to the sort of cold and leadership and in response to the boards pledges. She tweeted that as I previously said that the board was essentially a conservative organization and also came out with is her own or Or perhaps found only list of pledges for the board which more or less argue that the board had to come out and condemn Israeli military action. In the West Bank thank or condemn what she calls the ethnic cleansing of Palestinian communities in in the West Bank in other words as you said holding British Jews accountable for the actions. uh-huh office ready government. which if they at the very least a dangerous road to go down and she somebody who has previous four in this regard having tweeted about the rothschilds and the so-called influence in the past so the point of this is to say that changing the Leo Party is only the first step? They won't be root and branch Tusk to erotic antisemitism from the Ponti it is always interesting to see how those people who take part in what is called the new antisemitism this kind of attacking Jews shoes on the basis of what Israel does how at the end of the day they are also just old antisemites in the way that she brings up Rothschild conspiracies and things like that. I wanted to ask you about one of the pledgers. In particular number eight is entitled engagement with the Jewish community to be made via its main representative groups and then in explains Labor must engage with the Jewish community Levi its main representative groups not through fringe organizations and individuals. That sounds like it's referencing. Something like there's some history there. Can you tell us a little bit about that. Sure I mean I mean Jeremy Corbyn is somebody who was throughout the time he was leader of the party. Never very much interested in the views and concerns all mainstream British Jewish ortganizations. He has historically been in most of the time that he was leader. Always much more comfortable with what the board calls fringe organizations for example He wasn't much interested in The Jewish Labor movement which is sort of the mainstream Organiz ation all Jews in Labor Party or affiliated with the party rather Jewish Voice Labor whose membership I think could fit into a phone box. I mean if you look at their rallies and meetings the the next in the Guardian newspaper. It's always the same ten fifteen twenty people who assigning these latches At the same time At one of the times when the relationship between Jerry in British Jewish groups was was at his lowest he attended a Saito organized by a group called choose. Who are legitimate tendency in the Jewish community and represent people who have felt themselves felt this affiliated pushed away from the mainstream left-wing clock but they themselves I'm sure would say the reps and also a a very small number of people also Jeremy's also been affiliated with sort of anti-zionist ultra Orthodox people who live in his community but he did not have a working relationship with the board he did not have a working relationship with the chief rabbi in so far as I know and not that he had a working relationship with with the Jewish Leadership Council? which sort of is a you might say a rival organization to the Board of Deputies also a representative group so this point eight? This engagement group is really about the board wanting to reestablish Atlantic communication and a working relationship with the party which is sort of one of the sort of raison. d'etre foil for the board. It sells I'm going to move on in just a moment. Kind of forward-looking questions but there is one more retrospective effective thing that I'm curious about. which is what are we to make of people who are real friends of the Jews or certainly seem to be who campaigned for Labor in this last election? I'm thinking of people for example like London. Mayor Sadeq Khan who has said all the right things about anti Semitism done many of the things about about antisemitism but nevertheless tried to make Jeremy Corbyn the next prime minister should we hold that against him. I case if someone likes to Econ we should not hold that against against him and I think I think you know people who reunite kind of position which is to say supposedly oh party but not supposed to Jeremy Corbyn were very torn because the reality is the British electoral system that much like the Americans. There's it ends up becoming a two-party system Elections to the House Elsa parliament more or less function like elections to the House representatives. There are six hundred fifty constituencies. Each insurance becomes its own kind of to race and in many any of them the racist between Labour and the Conservatives and so sort of I would say anti anti Semitic Labor supporters found themselves in a very Korea unenvious position of having to decide. Do I vote for the Conservatives and put into power party that I oppose my entire adult life likely. ooh Aw do I grit my teeth and vote for the Labor Party on the basis that I am somehow voting for the Party and voting for the candidate in my constituency. But somehow not Jeremy Corbyn and I you know I as a journalist. I love about the free in this regard. So I don't have to make such compromises but I nonetheless feel for people who know people like I said Connor or you could answer this people like just flips.

B. C.'s Anna holic and I don't remind us who this man is I mean reading I mean we cannot read out the detail of some of his crimes because they ought to have rific to repeat needless to say he has quite a roll call of atrocities doesn't say he does and he was given the nickname the terminator for that reason he had a ruthless reputation in the gold rich region of the P. R. C. I'm today the court will be dealing with two really Faisal questions and all of this because sometimes international justice here in the Hague can feel so removed to the victims and the survivors back especially in Africa which this case the score deal so often with and so the two questions the judges will be dealing with today is how long should this mind spend behind bars and how much compensation should be awarded to the survivors many of whom actually race their lives to come here to the hate to give evidence the onus today's really only ICC to ensure this case can have some hanja will positive impact on their lives and in terms of the atrocities absolutely gruesome because these crimes were relatively recently committed SO two thousand and two two thousand and three a loss of what we saw during the course of the trial was photographic evidence I am and the images that we still have have stayed with those of us who were fortunate that and obviously the families to so in in one case and and some people fight might find some of this I am quite distressing and in the aftermath of a foreman massacre they find forty nine bodies of men women and babies some of the movies they say is somehow their hands ties and they were lying dead in a banana fields and in another case a pregnant woman who force often attempted rape by his rebel soldiers was then murdered by them so this is a really important case for the I CC to have rules the man responsible for all of this to justice and even more important for the cool because it's it has suffered a string of setbacks of recent years some high profile suspects walking free including the I've or informally the Lawrence bye bye earlier this year so this sense is is is so much more than just the sentences and it's a message from the cold absolutely yes although the prosecutor would argue as she tries to steer away from politics and actually this course is all about finding justice so that doesn't necessarily mean finding people guilty but absolutely there have been a string of failures in the past that have led to cases not reaching their final conclusions the collapsing before they reach this verdict stage so since the court was created in two thousand and two with a mandate to bring most powerful people to justice they have had for trials reach conclusion convictions I'm so this yes is is really critical and is being celebrated by human rights groups to as evidence that these most powerful leaders in most cases still men come eventually be brought to justice but it I mean it's also interesting because it represents a series of first so he was the the first person ever to be found guilty of this course of sexual slavery and that was actually one of five two Ben suited the prosecution's missions during her time is to make rape as a weapon of war recognized by international justice I know so he was convicted on thirteen kinds of war crimes five crimes against humanity and he as he mentioned first suspect ever to voluntarily surrender to the I CC but the prosecution's during the course of the trial said well you know it was a night to self preservation he walks into an embassy because he feared if he stays out there on the battlefield he flip flopped so many times between fighting for the rebels financing for the the governments that his life was in danger and actually he was better off here in the Hague you have the choice really listen thank you for joining us for the update the B.
