Israel Has Lost Moral Standing, Internal Cohesion – Prof Akinyemi

 Israeli Prime Minister Benjamin Netanyahu
Professor Bolaji Akinyemi, a former Nigeria’s Minister of Foreign Affairs, has declared that Israel has lost its international moral standing and internal cohesion due to its actions in the ongoing Gaza crisis.
In an interview with Arise Television yesterday, June 10, Professor Akinyemi said that Israel’s reputation has been damaged by the International Criminal Court (ICC) issue, with Mossad allegedly blackmailing and threatening ICC officials and their families to halt investigations.
He raised concerns about attempts to breach the archives of the International Court of Justice (ICJ) and possible threats against its judges to influence their judgments.
According to him, Israel’s actions are creating problems not only for itself but for the rest of the world.
The former minister cited recent reports of Israeli soldiers disobeying central command and acting independently, resulting in a significant increase in Palestinian casualties. He noted that resignations within Israel’s cabinet suggest the nation is losing its internal cohesion.
Professor Akinyemi said that if an African nation engages in similar actions as Israel, it would likely have faced government changes. He stressed that Israel’s actions have led to growing international dissatisfaction, with an increasing number of nations, particularly in Europe, recognizing Palestine as a state.
