Earlier this week, the International Criminal Court (ICC) concluded that it has jurisdiction to investigate alleged war crimes in Israel and against the terror group Hamas. Countries like Germany, Israel and Canada protested the move saying that the ICC has no jurisdiction in the area.

In a statement, the Canadian government said, “Canada’s longstanding position remains that it does not recognize a Palestinian state and therefore does not recognize its accession to international treaties.

In his latest video, Sam Eskenasi applauds the Canadian government’s decision and explains why Canada concluded that Palestine isn’t a country and therefore can’t join the ICC.

We’re asking readers, like you, to make a contribution in support of True North’s fact-based, independent journalism.

Unlike the mainstream media, True North isn’t getting a government bailout. Instead, we depend on the generosity of Canadians like you.

How can a media outlet be trusted to remain neutral and fair if they’re beneficiaries of a government handout? We don’t think they can.

This is why independent media in Canada is more important than ever. If you’re able, please make a tax-deductible donation to True North today. Thank you so much.
