    #172: Prosecuting the Occupation? Michael Sfard on the ICC

    The international Criminal Court (ICC) recently ruled that it has jurisdiction over the West Bank, East Jerusalem and the Gaza Strip — territories under Israeli occupation since 1967. This opens the path for the ICC to launch formal investigations against war crimes suspects, whether Israelis or Palestinians.
    In this recording of an APN February 23rd 2021, Israeli human rights lawyer and activist Michael Sfard analyzes the significance of the development. 
    Michael Sfard is an Israeli attorney who represents various Israeli and Palestinian human rights and peace organizations, movements, and activists, including Israel’s Peace Now movement. He is an expert in international humanitarian law and international human rights law. He was educated at the Hebrew University in Jerusalem and at University College in London.

Pro-peace Zionist talk
