( – Sen. Lindsey Graham (R-S.C.) took to the social media platform X to state that the United Nations’s International Court of Justice (ICJ) “can go to hell” following its ruling which called for Israel to immediately cease fire and stop its military assault on the southern city of Rafah in Gaza. 

In his post, he argued that it was time for them to stand up against the international justice organizations that were connected to the UN, and claimed that the ICJ could “go to hell.” Graham proceeded to say that the ruling of the ICJ calling for Israel to put an end to its operations which he argued were essential to ensure that the four battalions of Hamas are destroyed is “ridiculous.” He further argued that Hamas had repeatedly used the people of Palestine as human shields and that Israel needed to ignore the ruling by the ICJ. 

On Friday the United Nations top court stated that Israel needed to halt its offensive, however, the court does not have a way of enforcing its findings and rulings. The recent ruling comes as an addition to the international pressure against Israel to end its war in Gaza, which Palestinian health authorities have claimed has resulted in over 35,000 Palestinian deaths since the start of the conflict in Spain. 

Spain, Norway, and Ireland have all stated this week that they would recognize a Palestinian state. 

Prosecutors for the International Criminal Court (ICC) have also put out arrest warrants for Israeli Prime Minister Benjamin Netanyahu and Israeli Defense Minister Yoav Gallant, both of whom they are accusing of crimes against humanity and war crimes.
