"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..

Were very far from any of these things happening and again i would suspect that on the first half of this which is questions dealing with The use of force in the army. It will be very hard to even get a case because because it would be very hard to argue that that that that The army or even israel's civilian justice system hasn't already Details on the second half which is to deal with The settlement enterprise. There's a real problem that the judicial system arguably hasn't dealt with it in a way that would be satisfactory for the icu. But at the same time as you guys are hinting. Who actually prosecute. And for what. Somebody and i suspect that within a community of activists lawyers who are desperate to see this happen. Somebody's probably working on finding the one. Really good prosecutable case you know and probably as one i mean there there might very well be a senior israeli politician or even not a particular one who did something involving a settlement construction that really unequivocally looks like exactly the crime described in the rome statute and that did it in a place that unequivocally as far as the court is concerned is in territorially part of The state of palestine and that unequivocally avoided Any kind of legally hsun.

"So my own provisioning in this in this sense is that they will certainly provide evidence of the palestinians. I have no doubt about this. I'm in. I could imagine that they would provide evidence in this matter. And perhaps they. We tried to block the procedure Through complementarity ya'll chantal sharon and other people. I've been speaking to all had so much more to say i mean. There is an enormous depth of research. Been done in. This area are loads of people concerned. We know that there's a lot to discuss on how expectations again to be managed for example. What the practical difficulties around the investigations. But we thought we also just discussed some of the more mundane stuff. Let's just stop. What about the timing of this decision. What did you think steph. Well in a way it was surprise to me because first of all the court broke what journalists here called the friday night curse where every kind of major decision of the court seems to come on fridays after six pm so we were all very happy that this came through on a regular Wednesday on the other hand. I had kind of You know when you work for big news agency you always have these kind of lert up that if you have to send super speed reports you kind of always have them on top of your computering case. This decision comes out. And i had taken the been. Souda opens an investigation into palestine. Alert off the computer. Because i thought that she would possibly wait for the new prosecutor kareem. Khan whose due to come in june sixteenth and maybe they wouldn't announce anything new before he could look at it and say yes. Go ahead or no and the other thing we should mention. In ben sued statement is that it was actually full of caveats full of warnings reminders. That not much might actually happen. Maybe until cream kong comes in because basically. She says she's got no resources. There might also be a load of other things. that might need to be litigated. I mean all we've got so far. Is this agreement that for the purposes of the investigation palestine can be regarded as an area that the office of the prosecutor can can work work on so a lot of ways even though she's opened the investigation. She's essentially just said okay. It's now going to be over to you. Kareem khan placing him in the hotseat. Yeah before Con was elected. There was a kind of whisper campaign that maybe he would be more reluctant to go against major powers such as the us Which is very opposed to this israel investigation. So we'll have to see how that plays out but in any case you know any of those four investigation usually take years before cases actually end up in court and we don't expect anything to happen really quickly with this. So good luck to kareem khan because the workload he faces is going to be enormous. As ben souda keeps on launching new probes will definitely get have quite a lot of work for us as well as reporters. Yeah which is good because my cats have just started eating only expensive dry food for quote unquote exigent cats. So i need the work to fund my cats new dietary habits. Okay investigations four. Stephanie's cat may thanks very much and we'll come back to palestine again. Sure in the future. This will be a case that will go on for many years. So there'll be lots and lots more justice updates.

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.

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. 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.

The question is whether they're targeting palestinian combatants or fighters or whether they're also targeting civilians but then we come into question of the context but still days where both parties or individuals on both sides could be guilty of war crimes. That's that's distinct from the other shoes. That are that the prosecutors looking into the west bank where she's looking at contact both by israelis and palestinians. The victims are palestinians. And i think the significant ones there are is the context by israelis physically the settlement project and and issues relating to it where it's obviously conduct by israelis that is harming palestinians. She's also looking at conduct by the palestinian authority where the victims are either detainees in in palestinian Or people that are being targeted for supposedly collaborating with israel but again that would be palace. The palestinian authority acting or palestinian individuals acting against palestinians the official level.

I asked the court to intervene way back in two thousand nine and after palestine where she given a proper status at the united nations they became members of the icc in two thousand fifteen and asked the court to look back at what had been happening. Since two thousand fourteen the prosecutor had had a preliminary examination and had closed it because of the statehood issue and then with this new request it was relaunched and and last month judges finally decided that the court does have jurisdiction. They said they could not decide on statehood but that palestine had followed the normal accession procedure to the court and as such they could refer cases to the court giving the court territorial jurisdiction in the case now this is obviously grossly oversimplified but to put it in very general terms. This is the decision of the touches. So what's the potential investigation actually into. I shouldn't tell mention. There's a lot to this..

So as you know well, the trump administration may be the most vocal, but they're not the only critics of the poor. Many ICC member states, and even some human rights groups have criticized the court as inefficient and badly managed. A A few months ago, the Foreign Minister of the Netherlands Steph Block who's offender, the court and of course The Hague host for took the very unusual step of writing a public op ED in the Washington. Post ball places arguing that the ICC is in urgent need of reform. And he noted that the court and I'm quoting here has a quote. Meager track record of nine convictions and four acquittals that icy see members frequently propose his words mediocre judges for election, and that ICC decisions remained consistent. And then he specifically criticized a lawsuit that you and a group of other icy see judges have filed against the Corden Geneva asking for a substantial increase in pay over the roughly two hundred thousand dollars that judges already received. So what do you say to these people?

Again. That's a good question John, but I must tell you this That's not the only thing. Is the block glued in the op-ed? You picked out a small sliver of what he wrote. It was a long piece in which.

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. Who is now a candidate for leadership who it's not about Anti Semitism in the pause About the kind of compromises. They had to make that time. So no we we. We shouldn't hold I bet against As you intimate in about a month the voting will begin to elect a new leader of Labor this kind of an interesting quirk for our American listeners. The voting voting will actually stay open for more than a month through the beginning of April and people can vote. I guess anytime in that span. Who are the names that we need to know who are likely Lee to win the election and are any of them going to be you know kind of on their own? The answer to Labour's antisemitism problem tackling the antisemitism crisis is not as simple as for lack of a better way of putting removing the head from the snake Having Jeremy Corbyn leader suddenly a good thing because the cost was it the crisis could not be it's solution But in terms of who will become the next leader There this prison time probably two main candidates on the one hand you have Rebecca Long Bailey who is perceived to be the continuity Corbin candidate the date.

"Service no big decision is expected in the next hour the international criminal court in the Hague it's due to Paulson since on the Congolese rebel chief posco into Gunnedah he's been convicted for war crimes and sexual slavery in the east of the DRC the former warlord gave himself up to Rwanda's authorities before being extradited and tried in that in the Netherlands on joint from the international criminal court now by the B. 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.

Instead, the ICC is an unprecedented effort to vest power a supranational body without the consent of either nation states or the individuals over which should purports to exert jurisdiction.
