It is not only PR. This will restrict considerably the ability of Netanyahu and Gallant to travel abroad. Because every country that is members of the ICC should theoretically arrest them on arrival and would not allow their planes to fly over their territories.

Israel and the US are not signatories and they don't recognise those rulings, guess why. Because both countries are acting with such a sense of impunity that it is absolutely disgusting, when they think they are above the law and those laws don't apply to them.
