Establishing the International Criminal Court (ICC) in the name of world peace, when it’s actually seemingly uniting antisemitic nations, and is thus being used to regroup as a global antisemitic vehicle (hiding under the name of democracy), is extremely dangerous for world stabilty and peace. 

This is a mockery of our Constitution and democracy.

It's a wake up call for everyone.

When our enemies figure out how to infiltrate our governmental institutions and universities, they hijack the actual essence of democracy.

It's a line which shouldn't be crossed.

We must draw lines between right and wrong, good and evil — now.

Manipulation at both the UN, and ICC must stop now, and must cease on college campuses.

We must cease being blind to hatred and its resultant darkness.

College campuses engaging in hate, which also promotes terror; that is, calling for the extinction of Jews, does not fall under free speech protections.

Is the UN actually promoting antisemitism?

Are the ICC's and United Nation's tactics of turning aggressors into victims going unnoticed?

The ICC was established in 2002 with the important mandate of prosecuting individuals responsible for the most severe atrocities globally: such as war crimes, crimes against humanity, genocide, and crimes of aggression.

However, recent events have raised concerns about the impartiality and effectiveness of that court in carrying out its mandate.

The court's handling of cases — of seemingly protecting — Hamas,  Iran, and its proxies, particularly in regards to their actions against Israel, come to mind. 

Despite clear evidence of Iran and its proxies committing acts of aggression,  violating human rights with murdering, kidnapping and rapes of over 1400 men women and children on Oct. 7, 2023, the ICC has failed to hold them accountable for their actions.

Rather, the court has turned a blind eye to the atrocities committed by these aggressors turning them in to the victims and instead focused its attention on Israel, a country that has been forced to defend itself against violent attacks, calling them the aggressors.

This not only undermines the credibility of the court and the United Nations but also makes both the laughing stock of the 21st century.

It perpetuates injustice and impunity for individuals and entities violating international law; appearing as though they are protecting them, instead of condemning them for their actions. 

Furthermore, the United Nations, an organization meant to promote international cooperation and peace, has been hijacked by non Western nations with antisemitic and anti-democratic agendas.

Instead of standing up for freedom and human rights, the U.N. has become a platform protecting nations like Iran and even appointing them most recently to chair their Human Rights commission when they actually are the ones who violate all the above, in addition to spreading hatred, incite violence against Israel and the West, all with the United Nations hiding under the guise of promoting democracy and justice.

Is it not time for the world to wake up and recognize the true intentions of those who seek to undermine democracy and promote hate under the false pretense of protecting human rights?

We must not allow the ICC and the United Nations to continue to exist in such a manner and be used as tools for promoting hate and discrimination in the name of human rights and democracy.

It is our responsibility to protect democracy and uphold the values of freedom, justice, and human rights that these institutions claim to be founded upon.

It's time to speak out against the manipulation of international institutions, ensuring they fulfill their original purposes of promoting peace, democracy, and justice for all.
