An International Court of Justice tribunal began on Thursday in The Hague, the Netherlands in which South Africa is trying to prove that Israel committed genocide against the civilian population in Gaza during the current war.

This, even though on October 7 of last year, the terrorist organization Hamas murdered, raped, and even burned alive more than 1,200 Israelis, killing people in the most gruesome ways possible, thus creating a clear casus belli.

The court case in The Hague has generated a general feeling in Israel that the world has been turned upside down, and that there is no longer a place for the truth.

Let’s first see what the word genocide means and who introduced this term.

Clarifying terms

The term “genocide” was introduced to the world by Raphael Lemkin, a Jewish lawyer who was born in Poland and later fled to the United States before World War II to escape Hitler’s Nazi regime.

  1. Vernon Ryan says:

    The leftist news media has become the largest bearer of false witness in the history of the world. They have much to fear in the coming time frame of world history, and it will all be brought on themselves because of their immense hatred for the truth.

  2. psalm100al says:

    Isaiah. 59/14-15
    And judgment is turned away backward, and justice standeth afar off: for truth is fallen in the street, and equity cannot enter.
    Yes, truth faileth; and he that departeth from evil makeshift himself a prey. And the Lord saw it, and it displeased him that there was no judgment.

    • Esther Wischer says:

      The next verses – “He was appalled that there was no one to intervene;
      So His own arm achieved salvation for Him…According to what they have done. so will He repay wrath to His enemies and retribution to His foes”.
      Israel’s trust must be in God alone.
