Fact Check

Universally accepted international laws place clear and unequivocal limits, calling violations crimes of war and against humanity.

Claim: An international tribunal has no authority to hold sovereign states accountable.

Fact Check

International law created a tribunal as a legal entity to prosecute individuals for crimes of war, against humanity, and genocide in cases when guilty states fail to do so.

Claim: There are legitimate and illegitimate criticisms of religion.

Fact Check

Criticism is one thing. Vilifying one religion in defense of another is clearly indefensible. Further, international laws strictly prohibit persecuting, killing, or otherwise harming persons of other faiths, practices Israel and America repeatedly commit.

Claim: Lawfare uses its own definition of inciting violence.

Fact Check

LP calls self-defense violence and terrorism, premeditated aggression self-defense, including against innocent civilians.

Claim: Undefined hate speech should be banned.

Fact Check

International law protects free expression. Only when it crosses the line egregiously can it be questioned. Banning it is another matter, and without defining it, what is hate speech? Clearly, LP means any criticism of Israeli and American policies.

Claim: LP calls Universal Jurisdiction (UJ) illegitimate when it conflicts with "national security interests."
