(VINnews) — Democrat Congressman Mark Pocan told radio host Dean Obeidallah that he is “available” to serve the International Criminal Court’s arrest warrant on Benjamin Netanyahu, when the Israeli Prime Minister addresses Congress in July.

Obeidallah had Pocan as his guest on The Dean Obeidallah Show on Thursday and brought up Netanyahu’s visit.

Obeidallah: You know, Benjamin Netanyahu gets the honor of being invited to address Congress in a joint session on July 24. That’s what it’s scheduled for. We’ll see if that happens or not. What’s your reaction to that and the attempt by certain members of Congress to immunize Netanyahu from being even investigated for potential war crimes?

Pocan: Yeah. Well, I mean, again, this is rhetoric and support that’s so unwarranted by Benjamin Netanyahu. If you want to support Israel and the people from Israel, you do it by not supporting Netanyahu, I can tell you that. I mean, this guy, basically is their Trump, except, you know, he’s doing this to stay out of jail. That’s the only way he can continue. He has to continue all this to not be thrown in jail for crimes that he’s already being investigated on.

But what he’s done has been crimes against humanity. I mean, killing that many people, this collective punishment, the children, the women who’ve been killed in Gaza, the fact that he doesn’t support their priorities of the US. I think a lot of us are figuring out what to do. I think there’s gonna be a big block of us that don’t go and probably doing something alternative to get that message across.

But I’ll tell you, I’m still open if the international courts decide they’re gonna put out an arrest warrant, I’m available. You know? I may have a better chance of serving him than others, because this guy really has done war crimes. And we need to say that vocally because I think my goal is, I want people in Israel to know we support people of Israel, we support people of Palestine. We want peace in the region. We think a two-state solution is the best. But Benjamin Netanyahu and Hamas don’t represent any of the values I just mentioned. And we need to send that signal that he does not just manipulate Congress, for whatever he wants, and I think that’s what we’re working on.

Obeidallah is of Middle-Eastern Arab background, while Pocan is a practicing toeivah’nik. So they are not people to expect much from.

Pocan isn’t much different from the Squad.

But why is Pocan even in Congress? Because Wisconsin Republicans gave him an utterly safe district in order to maximize the opportunities for Republicans to win almost everything else in Wisconsin. The seat with different boundaries was held by a conservative Republican for most of the 1990s but the Republicans changed things in the 2012 redistricting and Pocan was elected then.

Bibi shouldn’t address Congress, it will accomplish nothing. Either he’ll be supported or he won’t, plus causing possible havoc and embarrassment, now is not the time. Biden won’t see him anyway.
