The Middle East is drifting leaderless to catastrophe. War is just an airstrike away

Stop Bibi protesterWhen Benjamin Netanyahu flies to Washington next month, he would be advised to avoid British airspace and airports. As a founding party of the international criminal court (ICC), the UK could find itself legally and morally obliged to detain Israel’s prime minister should he stray into its territory.

That’s because the ICC’s chief prosecutor is seeking a warrant for Netanyahu’s arrest for alleged war crimes and crimes against humanity in Gaza, where more than 37,000 people, mostly civilians, have died since the 7 October Hamas terrorist attacks in southern Israel, which killed about 1,200 people.

Sadly, the prospect of Netanyahu being led away in cuffs remains remote. It’s probably too much to hope that Keir Starmer, as Britain’s newly installed prime minister, would try to intercept this fugitive from justice. In its election manifesto, Labour strongly backs the ICC, which relies on member states to enforce arrests.
