The grounds of the International Court of Justice (ICJ) have witnessed many legal battles over grave issues like genocide and crimes against humanity. But the court’s latest case against Israel is a libelous sham, with Mexico on Tuesday actively lending its hand to the charade.

Mexico’s Foreign Ministry’s stated justification for meddling into the case initiated by South Africa in December rings hollow. It claims to want to “provide its view” on interpreting the Genocide Convention in relation to the case. But make no mistake – the Mexican government’s intervention paves the way for the court to disastrously redefine the legal criteria for genocide itself.

Despite its long-standing policy of non-intervention, Mexico argues that Israel is deliberately “obstructing humanitarian aid” and “destroying Arab cultural heritage.” This farce could render any attempt by Israel to destroy Hamas as a criminal act of ethnic cleansing against Arabs. The implications are truly chilling for nations’ rights to self-defense after the terrorist group butchered over a thousand of Israel’s citizens and captured hundreds on October 7.

It’s a bitter irony that Mexico adopts this hostile posture after its own citizen, Orion Hernandez Radoux, was brutally taken hostage and killed by those very same Hamas savages. Yet President López Obrador’s regime stays utterly silent on this injustice while eagerly fueling legal assaults demonizing Israel.

True advocates of human rights should be appalled by Mexico’s unconscionable betrayal of its long-professed principles of peace and humanitarian values.
