Global National: May 24, 2024 | Legal decisions piling up against Israel after ICJ ruling

43

It has been a week filled with legal and diplomatic blows for Israel over its treatment of Palestinians in Gaza. Three European countries have taken symbolic steps to recognize the Palestinian state and the International Criminal Court has announced it’s seeking arrest warrants against Israel’s prime minister and defence minister. Now, the UN’s top court has issued a ruling. Experts says this week’s ICC and ICJ decisions are a legal one-two punch to the country and its leadership. Crystal Goomansingh reports.

Thousands of workers at Canada’s Border Services Agency are threatening job action. The union representing members across Canada has secured an overwhelming strike mandate. As Mackenzie Gray reports, they are warning people they could see significant disruptions during a busy travel season.

New Democrats say they are planning to ask the House of Commons Ethics Committee to include a video by a Conservative MP as part of an ongoing study into the impact of disinformation on Canadian politics. Manitoba MP Branden Leslie distributed a video on his social media accounts titled, “Breaking News: Trudeau resigns.” It contains doctored television news clips mixed with real and out-of-context news. As David Akin reports, experts say it pushes the boundaries of political messaging.

Ever since 1990 when Baltej Singh Dhillon won the right to wear a turban while on duty, the RCMP, on occasion, adjusted its uniform regulations to reflect cultural and religious diversity in its ranks. The latest edition, a ribbon skirt, is now part of the ceremonial uniform options for Indigenous officers who identify as women or Two-Spirit people. Public reaction to the change is largely negative. Melissa Ridgen explains why.

Four anonymous sources apparently close to Russian President Vladimir Putin say he is willing to end his war if Russia is allowed to keep the territories it now controls in Ukraine. The big question is whether the messages are real. Mike Armstrong reports.

You never know what might go viral but an answer on Wheel of Fortune had all the right tidbits to trend. No only was it wildly wrong, it was also a little bit lewd. Mike Drolet explains.

  2. You've noticed the change at the grocers who now carry alcohol, and I do not mean the products. I mean the behavior of the people there.
    I said it was a bad idea and the longer it lasts as it is now, or frightfully grows, the more I will not want to shop at any grocer who stocks alcohol.
    There never used to be the smelly area in every one. Now there is.
    I'd wonder why, but why should I?
    I can add 1+1.

  3. Before South Africa looks to judge Israel, 1. Somalia ; 2. Central African Republic, 47% ; 3. Haiti, 63% ; 4. Yemen, 30% South Africa 27% malnutrition statistics. It is disgusting how someone can pass judgements when they are so scared to look into their own mirror's. Why isn't anybody screaming about Haiti?

  4. Who are you to order Israel to halt war on Rafa. ISRAEL WILL NOT HALT WAR AT Raffar until the hostages are released, tell ICC and ICJ to go after Hamas to release the hostages before making any rulings

    Behold, I come quickly, and blessed is he who keeps the words of the prophecy of this scroll.
    He who practices unrighteousness, let him still practice unrighteousness; and he who is filthy, let him remain filthy; and he who is righteous, let him still practice righteousness, and he who is holy, let him be holy still.
    Behold, I come quickly; I will give My reward is with me, to give to each person according to what he has done.
    He who testifies to these things says, “Yes, I come quickly.” Amen, come, Lord Jesus.
    The grace of the Lord Jesus Be with everyone, Amen. (Revelation 22:7,11-12,20-21) ??
