Israel 365: The United States sanctioned two top officials at the International Criminal Court, which U.S. Secretary of State Mike Pompeo, in announcing the move on Wednesday, called a “thoroughly broken and corrupt institution.”
ICC chief prosecutor Fatou Bensouda and Phakiso Mochochoko, head of The Hague court’s Jurisdiction, Complementarity and Cooperation Division, were sanctioned for the court’s “illegitimate attempts to subject Americans to its jurisdiction,” Pompeo told reporters at the U.S. State Department.
The ICC has been investigating whether war crimes have been committed by the United States in the war in Afghanistan and by Israel during the 2014 summer war with Gaza (the Israel Defense Forces’ “Operation Protective Edge”), in addition to alleged crimes in the West Bank’s disputed territories.

Opinion: The U.S. is not under the jurisdiction of the ICC because that would allow the trial of American citizens for crimes committed on American soil, which is only within the judicial power of the United States under the Constitution.

Once again President Donald J. Trump takes a stand for Israel. On June 13, 2020 the Sanhedrin noted Trump’s most significant accomplishments:
– Recognizing Jerusalem as the capital of Israel
– Transferring the American Embassy to Jerusalem
– Declaring that the Golan is a sovereign part of the State of Israel
– Secretary of State Mike Pompeo declaring that the State Department’s opinion established in 1978 is null and void and that the current official US policy is that Jewish communities in Judea and Samaria are legal under international law
So what will happen to Israel if Donald Trump is defeated by former Vice President Joe Biden, after he and Barack Obama used every opportunity to throw Israel under a bus?
Nothing that God doesn’t intend to happen. Donald Trump, like an ancient Persian King named Cyrus who blessed Israel by allowing the Jews to return to Babylon to rebuild the temple, has already blessed Israel.
The great prophet Daniel 2:20-21 said this:
“Blessed be the name of God forever and ever,
For wisdom and might are His.
21 And He changes the times and the seasons;
He removes kings and raises up kings;
He gives wisdom to the wise
And knowledge to those who have understanding”
