Senator Lindsey Graham of South Carolina has been a staunch defender of Israel and a vocal critic of the International Criminal Court (ICC).

In a series of recent press releases, Graham has condemned the ICC’s actions against the Jewish state, calling them a “win for the cartels” and urging the Biden administration to take a tougher stance.

In one of his latest statements, Graham joined a bipartisan group of senators in applauding the House’s efforts to sanction the ICC for its actions against Israel.

The senators argued that the ICC’s decision to investigate alleged war crimes committed by Israeli forces was a blatant overreach and a threat to the sovereignty of a key U.S. ally.

“It is Israel today and the United States tomorrow. We must stand firmly against the ICC in order to protect our own forces in future conflicts,” they said in a statement.

The senators pointed out that the ICC’s investigation specifically targeted Israel’s defensive actions against Hamas, a designated terrorist organization. They argued that this move undermined Israel’s right to self-defense and sent a dangerous message to other countries facing similar threats.

Amidst these efforts to defend Israel, Senator Graham also joined a bipartisan Senate delegation to Normandy, France, to commemorate the 80th anniversary of the D-Day landings.

This trip underscored Graham’s commitment to honoring the sacrifices of American service members and strengthening international alliances.

“I am incredibly privileged and honored to be able to attend the 80th anniversary of the D-Day landing with my House and Senate colleagues.

“Eighty years ago, the Allied forces, led by General Eisenhower, planned and executed one of the most amazing military operations in history. But like every great plan, it works until it doesn’t, and that is when the innovation, courage and determination of the common soldier takes over.

“There will be 100 American D-Day veterans attending this ceremony, and their average age is over 100 years-old. I can only imagine how they must feel all these years later.

“My message to them is simple: Thank you for saving the civilized world and the American way of life. May God bless you and may your fallen comrades rest in peace,” said Graham.
