Today, I spoke with American documentary film-maker Regis Tremblay about the prospects of a South African victory at the International Court of Justice (ICJ). I explained to Regis why I believe that the ICJ is likely to rule against Israel and grant to South Africa the provisional relief that it seeks.
Regis and I also discussed the Biden administration’s criminal bombardment of Yemen, the Houthis’ efforts to save Gaza, the growing danger of a major war in the Middle East, and the grim future of Israel’s apartheid regime.
Finally, we talked about Israel’s incessant complaints about the United Nations. Although Israel’s supporters claim that the United Nations is ‘biased against Israel’, the institutions of the U.N. have done nothing to enforce international law in the occupied Palestinian Territories and are profoundly complicit in the suffering of the Palestinian people.
By rendering a judgment against Israel, the ICJ has an opportunity to address, at long last, the U.N.’s historic failure to defend the human rights of Palestinians.
