MK Jabareen pushes legislation forcing Israel to join International Criminal Court

Joint List MK Yousef Jabareen (Hadash) continued an Arab Israeli diplomatic offensive by tabling legislation to force Israel to ratify the Rome Statute of the International Criminal Court (ICC) in order to increase international pressure on the Israeli government.

Asked about the poor prospect of his bill passing, Jabareen told The Jerusalem Post, “I expect a heavy objection from the coalition. But this could be a test to Israel’s declared commitment to international law.”
