Here is the article with the outcome of the South Africa genocide case against Israel at the International Court of Justice (ICJ) and Netanyahu’s response added:Israeli Embassy in Mexico Torched Over Rafah Massacre as Haley’s “Finish Them!” Fury Ignites Outrage, Hudson County Politicians MuteOutrage over the recent Israeli massacre of Palestinian civilians in the Rafah refugee camps has reached a boiling point, with protesters in Mexico City torching the Israeli embassy while former UN Ambassador Nikki Haley made inflammatory remarks appearing to endorse further violence against Palestinians. Meanwhile, politicians in Hudson County, New Jersey have remained conspicuously silent on the crisis.

Mexican Protesters Torch Israeli Embassy

Angry demonstrators set fire to the Israeli embassy in Mexico City to denounce the ongoing violence in Gaza. Pro-Palestinian protesters participated in the “Urgent action for Rafah” rally, voicing their outrage at the Israeli occupation. Molotov cocktails were hurled at the embassy compound, engulfing it in flames, while clashes erupted between protesters and riot police attempting to disperse the crowd.The Mexican government has also taken a strong stance, filing an intervention declaration in South Africa’s case accusing Israel of “genocide” at the International Court of Justice (ICJ).

Haley’s Chilling “Finish Them!” Message

Days after Israeli airstrikes killed at least 45 Palestinians, mostly women and children, in a crowded tent camp in Rafah, Nikki Haley visited an Israeli kibbutz near the Gaza border that was attacked by Hamas on October 7th. During this visit, she wrote the chilling message “Finish them!” on an Israeli artillery shell, seemingly encouraging Israel to continue and intensify its assault on Gaza.The photos showing Haley writing “Finish them!” were shared by Danny Danon, a member of the Israeli parliament who accompanied her. Alongside that message, Haley also wrote “America loves Israel!” and signed the artillery shell.Haley’s actions were widely condemned, with many viewing her message as an endorsement of violence against Palestinian civilians. Her behavior was seen as inflammatory and insensitive, coming just days after the Rafah massacre that killed dozens of displaced Palestinians taking shelter in tents.

Deafening Silence from NJ Politicians

Despite the global outrage over the Rafah massacre and Haley’s inflammatory remarks, politicians in New Jersey have remained silent on the issue. No statements or reactions have been issued by local officials or community leaders, reflecting a concerning lack of response to the escalating violence and civilian casualties in Gaza.

ICJ Genocide Case and Netanyahu’s Response

The situation escalated further when South Africa brought a case against Israel at the ICJ, accusing it of violating the 1948 genocide convention through its actions in Gaza. South Africa stated “Israel has a genocidal intent against the Palestinians in Gaza” and asked the court to order an immediate cessation of hostilities while the full case is heard.In a strongly worded response, Israeli Prime Minister Benjamin Netanyahu condemned the case as “hypocrisy and lies”, accusing South Africa of “functioning as the legal arm of the Hamas terrorist organisation”. He stated: “We are fighting terrorists, we are fighting lies… Today we saw an upside-down world. Israel is accused of genocide while it is fighting against genocide.”The White House also stated that the genocide allegations against Israel were unfounded.As the legal proceedings continue, concerns mount over the potential for further escalation and civilian suffering in Gaza amid the ongoing Israeli offensive.
