Dershowitz Would Defend Israel in The Hague over Settlements Law

3

American law professor Alan Dershowitz said that he would defend Israel in an international court if necessary over settlements legislation approved by the Knesset last week. “I’m opposed to the statute,” Dershowitz said in an interview broadcast on Israel Radio as per Times of Israel, but said the court in The Hague was not the proper venue for such a case.

“The International Criminal Court was set up to deal with genocide, with mass murderers, not to deal with property disputes. So I think it would be utterly improper for the International Criminal Court to set up an investigation based on a dispute over land….I would feel very comfortable defending Israel in front of the International Criminal Court if a case were brought on the kind of land dispute that is represented by that statute.”
