Jerusalem Post: “ICJ’s anti-Israel ruling a ‘dark day in the pursuit of justice’ – Jewish orgs”

European Jewish Congress (EJC) President Dr. Ariel Muzicant added, “While the court rejected the specific demand of South Africa for an immediate ceasefire, it requested of Israel to comply with measures which will only facilitate the aims and objectives of Hamas and its allies in its mission of terror against the Jewish State.”

“If the Republic of South Africa truly wanted to benefit the citizens of Gaza, it would have been better occupied using its international links to pressurize Hamas and its allies to cease hostilities against Israel rather than bring this nefarious case for genocide,” Muzicant added.

“Not only is the accusation of genocide false, but we also cannot fail to note, as European Jews prepare to mark International Holocaust Remembrance Day tomorrow, how this case cheapens the very essence of the term ‘genocide,’ the clear and deliberate attempt to destroy the existence of a people, an act directly experienced by the Jewish People in living memory,” Muzicant concluded.
