Israeli Prime Minister Refutes Genocide Accusations

Benjamin Netanyahu, Israeli Prime Minister, has characterized the accusations of genocide made against Israel as “outrageous,” asserting that they should be dismissed by “decent people everywhere.” This statement was made following a decision by the International Court of Justice (ICJ) on South Africa’s claim of genocide against Israel. The news comes from the source of Reader Wall.

Netanyahu’s Strong Response

The Prime Minister firmly stated, “The accusations of genocide laid against Israel are not only untrue, but are also outrageous. As a matter of principle, all respectable individuals across the world should reject them.”

Echoing the pledge, “Never Again,” made on the eve of International Holocaust Remembrance Day, Netanyahu reaffirmed his commitment as Prime Minister of Israel. He promised that Israel will continue defending itself against Hamas, which he nicknamed as a genocidal terror institution.

Israel’s Position on International Law and Self Defense

Netanyahu pointed out his unwavering commitment to international law, as well as his unshaken commitment to preserving and defending Israel and its people. “Like all other countries,” he said, “Israel possesses an inherent right to defend its soil and people. The horrid attempt to deny Israel this fundamental right amounts to a glaring discrimination against the Jewish state, which was appropriately rejected.”

International Court’s Verdict Over Genocide In Gaza

The International Court of Justice, based in The Hague, ordered Israel on Friday to take every possible measure to prevent the occurrence of a genocide in Gaza. However, it stopped short of ordering an immediate ceasefire in the region. The court’s decision was reached by a 15 to 2 majority vote, and Israel was told to present a report to the court within a month.

Netanyahu’s Stance Against Hamas

Netanyahu mentioned that on October 7, Hamas committed “the most horrific atrocities” against the Jewish people since the Holocaust and has threatened to repeat these offenses. He reaffirmed that Israel’s war is against Hamas terrorists and not against Palestinian civilians. He further pointed out, “We will continue facilitating humanitarian assistance and strive to keep civilians safe. This, we’ll do even as Hamas uses civilians as human shields.”

Stressing on his commitment towards maintaining Israeli safety, he concluded with the words, “We will continue to do what is necessary to defend our country and defend our people.”
