"Arab legislators...should do what they can to encourage the International Criminal Court to indict Prime Minister Benjamin Netanyahu and other leaders for violating international law with the settlement regulation law, MK Haneen Zoabi (Joint List) said this week.
'We will take any action that can encourage the ICC to act against Netanyahu and other politicians,' Zoabi told The Jerusalem Post. 'We can't apply to the ICC as individuals or as a parliamentary movement; only states can apply officially. But we can help with any information. We will do our best to obtain and push for this...'...
She said the time has come for the ICC to act against Israel, "because...Unless you address the international court and other institutions to pressure Israel, it won't reach the conclusion that what it is doing is a violation of international rights. We need some kind of sanctions and some kind of punishment.
Our message is the ICC must intervene in this. I support Boycott, Divestment and Sanctions for Israel...The matter of legitimacy is so sensitive to Israel that any steps that can send Israeli public opinion a message delegitimizing its policies can create pressure for change, and for this you need real punishment through sanctions and BDS,' Zoabi said."
