Israeli Prime Minister, Benjamin Netanyahu in an interview by Matt Crouch from TBN, the largest Christian Network in the world on January 21, 2020.
The following is an extract from the Prime Minister’s statement:
The Prime Minister posited that the government of the United States of America under Donald J Trump has mounted so much pressure on the International Criminal Court which he appealed to everybody to also speak up against injustice in the land.
“The US government, under President Trump has spoken forcefully against the ICC for this travesty, and I urge all your viewers to do the same. To ask for concrete actions, sanction against the international court, its officials, prosecutors, everyone.
He equally stated that the actions of the ICC shows that they are against freedom which democracy as system of Government preach.
They’re basically in a full frontal attack on the democracies, both on the democracies’ right to defend themselves, and on Israel’s right, the Jewish people’s right, to live in their ancestral homeland, the Land of Israel.”
On the issue of the Holocaust, Prime Minister Netanyahu said stressed that despite the attacks on Israel nation in the past, her enemies are still battling relentlessly to destroy them.
He added, “A third of the Jewish people went up in flames. There was nothing we could do. Now, after the Holocaust and the State of Israel was established, the attempts to destroy the Jewish people have not disappeared. Iran openly declares every day that it wants to wipe Israel off the face of the earth.”
Prime Minister Netanyahu added:
“We now have the capacity to defend ourselves, and I think the lesson of Auschwitz is, One, stop bad things when they’re small, and Iran is a very bad thing. It’s not that small but it could get a lot bigger with nuclear weapons. And I think the first thing is stop that. And second, understand that the Jews will never ever again be defenseless in the face of those who want to destroy them.”
