'There is no famine in Gaza'

And the charges themselves are false. There has never been a policy of trying to starve the population in Gaza. I'm saying there's no famine in Gaza right now. No, there is no, I'm. That's exactly what I'm saying. There is no famine in Gaza. There has never been. And let me finish the sentence, please. There has never been famine in Gaza. That is a false story. It is a libel. Mr. Derma, you're right. the US president did say it was outrageous. But I also want to read to you what else he said. Since December 2023, he said they're starting to lose international support by indiscriminate bombing that's taking place. He's talking about what Israel is doing. Secretary Blinken said the daily toll on civilians in Gaza, particularly on children, is far too high. the US president sharpened his criticism in February 2024, and he said the Gaza response is over the top. There are a lot of innocent people who are in trouble and dying. Yeah, well, we are in war and in war tragedies happen. And we've had during this war, as you know, y'all that we've actually had a situation where we had three hostages who came out and our forces fired on them and killed them. We've had friendly fire incidents where we've lost dozens of Israeli soldiers. That happens in war. What is the facts is that Israel has taken action that no other army fighting in urban territory has ever taken to get the civilians out of harm's way. That's not what I say. It's not what Israel says. It's what the expert on urban warfare at West Point said. It's what General David Petraeus said. He said no country has gone to greater lengths to get the civilians in an urban area out of harm's way. Those are the facts. Unfortunately, the prosecutor wasn't interested in the facts. He was interested in these liveliest charges against Israel. I said to you again, I'm a member of the war Cabinet. He's basically saying, and you're going to say that because you are a member of the War cabinet, Mr. Derma. But you've just talked about the equivalence with Hamas, and international lawyers are saying that international law does not compare individuals with each other. It compares each individual's conduct with their legal obligations. So the standard is not, is one side better than the other side? The standard is international law. And the prosecutor with a panel of experts that he appointed says it's that, you know, it's not one side complying with its legal obligations. And according to the prosecutor, that isn't happening. Well, it's just false. And he should have actually looked into the case. He was due to come to Israel and I think about a week he decided not to come not to understand how Israel's system of justice works. He does not actually have jurisdiction over Israel at all, but he decided to just defame Israel based on false charges. I'm not getting into the whole issue of the false equivalent. That's right. I think it's outrageous. I think it's outrageous to put FDR on one side and hit the round the other and say both have committed war crimes. That's not the main point. The main point is what is what you said, the charges themselves.
