New Hope Chair Gideon Sa’ar released a video in which he responded to the ICC ruling that it has the jurisdiction to investigate Israelis for actions carried out in Judea and Samaria, Gaza and eastern Jerusalem.

“The ICC ruling, that it has jurisdiction to investigate Israel for defending our citizens, is dangerous and shameful. It goes against the Court’s founding principles, and only serves to promote terror and push off any hope for peace. It is yet another example, of how the Palestinian Authority is working to hijack international institutions to attack Israel. Shame on the ICC for allowing sponsors of terror to abuse the cause of justice," he said.

"Israel is the most attacked country in the world, with the most moral army in the world. And this is the country that the ICC chooses to undermine its right to self defense??"

"Under my leadership, Israel will take all measures to combat this injustice. I will not allow Israel to be attacked in this way. I will work closely with our greatest ally, the United States, and other countries to fight such hypocrisy and double standards. And I will of course work day and night to protect the honorable men and women that risk their lives to defend Israel,” Sa'ar concluded.
