VIDEO: Game of Thrones stars and other actors read South Africa's case file charging Israel with genocide at the ICJ

Information reaching Kossyderrickent has it that Game of Thrones stars and other actors read South Africa's case file charging Israel with genocide at the ICJ.

Israel categorically denies the genocide accusation and is set to present its defense in The Hague on Friday.

Other actors who contributed to the video series include Paapa Essiedu (I May Destroy You), Indya Moore (Pose), Steve Coogan (The Trip), Wallace Shawn (The Princess Bride) and Alia Shawkat (Arrested Development).

South Africa has argued that Israeli leaders and lawmakers “declared their genocidal intent” in public statements such as those by Israeli Defense Minister Yoav Gallant, who said in October that Israel would impose a complete siege on the territory because it was fighting “human animals.” In its case, South Africa is calling on the court to order a ceasefire in Gaza to prevent “irreparable harm.”

The video series is published by the Palestine Festival of Literature, a British-based cultural association committed to “the creation of language and ideas for combating colonialism in the 21st century.” The video shows the actors reading key sections of South Africa’s 84-page dossier, which argues Israel is guilty of violating the Convention on the Prevention and Punishment of the Crime of Genocide in its actions in its war in Gaza against the terrorist group Hamas.

Other famous names included Liam Cunningham, Charles Dance, and Lena Headey from the hit TV series “Game of Thrones,” based on the books by George R. R. Martin; Tobias Menzies and Khalid Abdalla who both appeared in Netflix’s “The Crown”; and Jewish actor Wallace Shawn from “The Princess Bride,” among others. Prominent anti-Israel activists Susan Sarandon and Cynthia Nixon also made contributions.

Nixon of “Sex and the City” fame recently took part in a hunger strike outside the White House in solidarity with the Palestinians in Gaza, while Sarandon was forced to apologize for saying at a recent pro-Palestinian rally that US Jews fearing for their safety amid a spike in antisemitism “are getting a taste of what it feels like to be a Muslim in this country.”
