Scott Joins Colleagues in Demanding Biden Support Israel; Oppose ICC Action 

WASHINGTON — U.S. Senator Tim Scott (R-S.C.), member of the Senate Foreign Relations Committee, joined six of his colleagues in sending a bipartisan letter to President Biden urging him to strongly oppose the International Criminal Court’s (ICC) efforts to politically target Israel following the Jewish Nation’s response to Hamas’s unprovoked terrorist attack on October 7. 

“It is outrageous that the ICC would make a political calculus to target Israel, which only further undermines the Court’s legitimacy and undercuts efforts to advance peace between Israelis and Palestinians,” the senators wrote in part. “Under the American Servicemembers Protection Act of 2002 (P.L. 107-206), the President is granted broad authorities to respond to these types of actions by the ICC, and we urge you to fully implement the law should the Court move forward with action against Israel.”

In addition to Senator Scott, the letter was signed by Senators Marco Rubio (R-Fla.), Jacky Rosen (D-Nev.), Chuck Grassley (R-Iowa), Joe Manchin (D-W.Va.), Dan Sullivan (R-Alaska), and Kirsten Gillibrand (D-N.Y.).
