The International Criminal Court has declined to investigate the war crimes committed by Israeli Defence Forces on the Mavi Marmara (Gaza Aid Flotilla) incident on May 2010 on the grounds that the case was not grave enough.
That may be so. However, given the sheer amount of Israel’s war crimes in other past situations (see here), none of which has ever compelled the ICC to open any investigation, could there be other motives why the ICC may never investigate – or prosecute – Israel in the future?
