Arab expert: Israel will be facing Isolation

Politics 12:25 21.05.2024

Arab political expert Khalil Assali has warned of potential isolation for Israel following announcements of impending charges against Israeli and Hamas officials by the International Criminal Court (ICC). Asali's remarks come in the wake of statements by the ICC chief prosecutor indicating that Israeli Prime Minister Benjamin Netanyahu, Defense Minister Yoav Gallant, Hamas, and other high-ranking officials may face charges for alleged war crimes and human rights violations.

Speaking exclusively to Ednews, Asali highlighted the seismic impact of potential trials on Israel's reputation and geopolitical standing. He asserted, "Israel is facing a profound crisis, akin to a tragic earthquake, on both domestic and international fronts. The prospect of legal proceedings has already cast a shadow over the Israeli government, with implications extending beyond its democratic credentials. Israel now faces the perception of being a criminal state, liable to prosecution for its actions."

Assali emphasized the potentially far-reaching consequences for Israel, noting heightened anxiety within the Israeli government and efforts to rally support from European allies. He observed, "The Israeli leadership is visibly nervous, scrambling to leverage diplomatic channels to mitigate the fallout. Conversely, for Palestinians, while the legal proceedings may hold symbolic significance, the reality of ongoing conflict persists."

Foreseeing future developments, Assali predicted the eventual appearance of Israeli officials in court and a potential exodus of individuals fearing international legal repercussions. He warned, "Israel's isolation is likely to deepen, particularly if the US refrains from staunchly defending it on the international stage. Such a scenario would constitute a severe blow to Israel's diplomatic standing and strategic alliances."

As the international community awaits further developments, the looming specter of legal proceedings against Israeli and Hamas officials underscores the complex dynamics shaping the Middle East region. Stay tuned for continued coverage and analysis on this evolving story.
