The effort by International Criminal Court prosecutors to arrest Israeli leaders has provoked nine members of the Senate to insist that the U.S. Department of Justice declare its position on the decision.

“This action is especially troublesome considering the bipartisan conversation held between members of the Senate and prosecutor [Karim] Khan last month in which Khan assured senators that a complete and thorough investigation would be conducted before any action was taken,” stated the letter led by Sens. Lindsey Graham (R-S.C.) and John Thune (R-S.D.).

Pointing out the court’s double standards against Israel, the letter said the choice by Khan “cannot be justified in light of the ICC’s other investigations—such as the one into crimes against humanity in Venezuela—that have been under investigation for years. There are also several rogue nation-states that routinely and brazenly commit horrific violations of international law, including China, Iran and North Korea, which the ICC has summarily ignored.”

Other signatories of the letter included Sens. Jim Risch (R-Idaho), John Cornyn (R-Texas), Thom Tillis (R-N.C.), Marsha Blackburn (R-Tenn.), Josh Hawley (R-Mo.), Katie Britt (R-Ala.) and Susan Collins (R-Maine).
