    I don't want to pay for Israel's wars. That said, who enforces these "arrest warrants". Seems like political theater.

    The article says they have an "arrest warrant" for Putin too. So he's in custody, then?

    Only countries who have signed and ratified the ICC relevant treatises are obligated to arrest a wanted person. Notable countries who haven't ratified are Israel, Russia and the USA. The main thing is that those wanted can't travel to ratified countries.

    It is political theater but that is most politics.

    Biden is freaking out about the whole thing because he desperately wants to pretend Netanyahu isn't a monster fighting other monsters and killing a shit ton of children along the way.

    It's not political theater for domestic US politics, it's an independent judiciary based in the Netherlands. It didn't play politcs when it sentenced over 150 war criminals from the former Yugoslavia, neither does it now.

    No, it won't trigger WW3, don't be silly.

    Yes, but no one is going to arrest the Prime Minister of Israel.

    All members who have ratified the treaty are obligated to arrest a wanted criminal if they are inside that country's jurisdiction. So Bibi options for travel are drastically limited. Would be funny if Israel extradited him (won't happen):roffle:

    Sure, but it won't look good for them. Deeply ironic that Israel is the one harboring war criminals now, when it used to be them carrying out extrajudicial killing of wanted war criminals like Eichmann.

    You talk as if they have gotten the warrant for Bibi already, but won't that take ages and probably be rejected anyway?

    That also talks a lot about it being an application for a warrant. I assume applications are not automatically granted otherwise it wouldn't be an application?

    It's how the process starts, he wouldn't fill them if there wasn't something to go on. But yes, its up to the ICC justices to decide in the end.

    I doubt this will change anything. The ICC warrants have been ignored in the past and there were no real consequences for doing it.
