Graham: Palestinians Will Lose Aid If They Attack Israel at ICC

Senator Lindsey Graham vowed to cut off US aid to the Palestinians if they bring charges against Israel at the International Criminal Court on Friday’s “Hugh Hewitt Show.”

Graham stated, “if the Palestinians join the International Criminal Court in April, and they begin to bring cases against the IDF alleging they’re war criminals for defending the state of Israel, I will lead the effort to cut off all aid to the Palestinians.”

Graham also re-iterated his prior promise to defund the UN if the president uses the UN Security Council to bypass Congress, saying “if the President of the United States sends a nuclear deal with Iran to the UN Security Council, and bypasses the Congress, takes the deal directly to the UN Security Council, and they act on the deal before Congress gets a look at the deal and [a] vote on it, I will suspend all assistance to the — UN, because they will have acted in such an irresponsible manner. I will have Israel’s back.”
