The ICC On Libya - Hypocrites Of The First order

The International Criminal Court (ICC) is often held up by the Left as exactly the sort of organization America should be part of to be a member of the so-called International Community in good standing.

What they really are is sick, putrid joke.

Just as the feckless UN Human Rights Council has not seen fit to condemn Moamar Khaddaffi's butchery of his own people, the ICC likewise is saying 'uh, not our business.'

Here's a statement by Luis Moreno-Ocampo, the International Criminal Court’s chief prosecutor, on Libya:

"The decision to do justice in Libya should be taken by the Libyan people. Currently, Libya is not a State Party to the Rome Statute. Therefore, intervention by the ICC on the alleged crimes committed in Libya can occur only if the Libyan authorities accept the jurisdiction of the Court, (through article 12(3) of the Rome Statute). In the absence of such step, the United Nations Security Council can decide to refer the situation to the Court. The Office of the Prosecutor will act only after either decision is taken".

Funny thing...Israel isn't a signatory to the Rome Statute either. And yet that has never stopped the ICC from screaming like a wounded peahen every time Israel defends itself against aggression and terrorism.

The ICC even ruled that Israel's security barrier, built in response to Arafat's war against Israel's civilians was 'illegal under international law' in response to a complaint brought by the 'Palestinians' and their enablers in the matter that it was a defensive measure solely designed to save lives.

On the ICC's site, there are a massive 1023 entries on Israel, more than any other opposed to 121 on Libya.

Funny the way the UN and the ICC always seem to have a convenient excuse to ignore the real despots and murderers while devoting so much time to Israel's imagined flaws, isn't it?

There's a word for that.

As far as I'm concerned, these people are lower than the naturally processed remnants of my breakfast this morning that I flushed a few hours ago.
