Curtain University Dean of Global Futures Joe Siracusa reacts to Prime Minister's response to the International Criminal Court (ICC) seeking warrants for Israel’s Prime Minister Benjamin Netanyahu of alleged war crimes.

“The Prime Minister of Australia has just a little less at stake than President Biden, I mean, Biden, after all, is in lockstep with Israel it has provided Israel with everything it needs," Mr Siracusa told Sky News Digital Presenter Gabriella Power.
