Analysis: The ICC and Israel – Murky but getting clearer

The International Criminal Court’s treatment of Israel may be quickly transitioning from a state of uncertainty to yet another forum of conflict and bias.

On Thursday, the court found that its chief prosecutor Fatou Bensouda had committed “material errors” in choosing to not open a criminal investigation into war crime allegations against IDF personnel related to the 2010 Mavi Marmara flotilla raid.

The latest dispute at the forum was the court’s first actual decision related to the Israeli-Arab conflict, which it approved by a 2-1 majority.
