6/5 Israel’s Secret Undermining Of the ICC w/ Meron Rapoport

June 5, 2024

It’s Hump Day! Sam and Emma speak with Meron Rapoport, editor of Local Call and writer at +972 Magazine, to discuss his recent piece entitled “Surveillance and interference: Israel’s covert war on the ICC exposed”, co-authored with Yuval Abraham. First, Sam runs through updates on Biden’s blatantly illegal new asylum policy, the New York Times report on Israel’s disinformation campaign against elected US officials, US primary elections, Indian elections, charges in Wisconsin’s fake electors scheme, Chuck Schumer’s Senate, Starbucks and Amazon union action, and Eric Adams’ Cop City, before diving deep into Biden’s new Trumpian asylum policy. Meron Rapoport then joins, as he walks Sam through the release of +972 and the Guardian’s recent investigation on Israel’s decade-long project of blackmail and surveillance against ICC officials, and the revelations around what Israel has done to keep the story under wraps. After expanding on the particular role that Yossi Cohen’s Mossad played in initiating the project against then-ICC Prosecutor Fatou Bensouda, Rapoport steps back to assess the widespread nature of Israel’s surveillance of ICC officials, why fear of criminal proceedings pushed Netanyahu to issue this authorization, and how they attempted to use the information to undermine the credibility of the ICC’s sources. After expanding on the internal awareness of the criminal nature of Israel’s genocide, Meron, Sam, and Emma wrap up by assessing whether the international backlash to Israel’s ethnic cleansing of Gaza has had any major impact on the Israeli public’s awareness.

And in the Fun Half: Sam and Emma parse through the absurd mentality that led to Biden’s new illegal (and inhumane) asylum policy, Gayle King’s recent interview with a Jewish US Army Major who resigned in protest of the US’ role in Israel’s genocide, and talk with Dennis from Tennessee about the status of weed legalization. Dave Rubin calls out the anti-White US justice system that charged Donald Trump, before being corrected by Megyn Kelly of all people, Charlotte from DC unpacks the counter-arguments to anti-migrant talking points, and Christ from Pennsylvania shares some of the absurdity coming from America’s fringe authoritarian youth. The MR Team also unpacks the insanely bigoted discourse around Caitlin Clark’s rookie campaign (as presented by Clay Travis), plus, your calls and IMs!
