The Arab League has affirmed its support for South Africa’s Genocide case against the Israeli Regime, preceded by Colombia and Brazil. The growing list of supporters have joined South Africa’s case at the International Court of Justice (ICJ) holding the occupation entity accountable for commiting genocide in Gaza. The legal proceedings began today and will continue till tomorrow, Friday Jan. 12, 2024 in the Netherlands-based court.
Ahmed Aboul Gheit, the Secretary General of the Arab League then announced that “It is natural and logical for the Arab League to fully support the lawsuit filed by South Africa against Israel before the International Court of Justice on charges of committing genocide. We look forward to a just and bold ruling that will stop this aggressive war and put an end to the shedding of Palestinian blood.”
Gheit then added, “I express gratitude to South Africa and its government for adopting this principled stance, prioritizing morals and human values over any other considerations… and I reaffirm the Secretary General’s support for South Africa’s efforts in every possible manner.”
Notably, all western nations have refrained from supporting South Africa’s charge of genocide at the International Court of Justice, with U.S Secretary of State Anthony Blinken claiming that “South Africa’s submission against Israel disctracts the world from important efforts for peace and security.”
