Oh dear! Palestine is moving right along!
"Abbas said that the Palestinians will accept no less than “the independence of the state of Palestine, with east Jerusalem as its capital, on all the Palestinian territory occupied in 1967, to live in peace and security alongside the State of Israel, and a solution for the refugee issue on the basis of Resolution 194.”
You put to much stock in the War Crimes thing. Palestine can simply do what Isarel and even US do. They can put together a kill list and assasinate them when and where evere they can. They can spend the next 60 or more years hunting and assassinating them like Israel did to the Nazi's that escaped the hangmans noose at Nuremberg. Did we take Osama bin Laden to the ICC. HELL NO! We put a hole in his head and dropped him in the Marianas trench. He is now literally lower than whale chit. The reason why we do this is because there is no world court that can actually deliver justice. So assassination is as close to justice as any state can get. The reason there is no world court that can deliver justice is because we will not allow that court to actually exist. We will not allow that court to actually exist because we know our corrupt politicians would not be able to keep themselves out of that court's prision. They would no longer be above the law and commit international crimes with impunity. We would nolonger be able to be the accessories to the crimes of other nations. So instead of seeking Justice we settle for revenge.
Where the ICJ comes in is that they are most effective at boarder deliniations. So if Netanyahu continues to to try play both US and Palestine as suckers in the negotiations. They can say we've been conducting these negotiations for decades and we have been literally losing physical ground. Israel is literally wiping Palestine off the Map. We're done. We'll go to ICJ and let them determine our rightful boarders under international law. The Court does have an enforcement mechanism. That's the Security Council and this is what Hardeep Singh Puri, President of the Security Council, said today.
So there it is before the UNSC a Judgement from ICJ that deliniates the boarders of the two states. The two state solution has been handed to teh Security Council on a silver platter. If US veto's the enforcement of that Judgement. Even if we can drag Israel and Palestine back to the table. What legitimacy would the results of any negotiations have after that veto? What if it results in veto gridlock in the Security Council? One of teh permanent meembers takes the position that they will veto everything brought before the Security Council until the enforcement of the Judgement is approved. The Palestinians have been waiting over 60 years for this solution. They can't wait any longer. Everything else in the world can wait with Palestine for the next 60 years if that's if that's what it takes. Veto! Veto! Veto! Veto! Veto! Veto! Veto! It's bad enough that Israel is threatening the integrity of the NPT. Are we also going to allow them to threaten the stability of the UNSC? What if Palestine goes NEOCON and pulls a Bush? We have a judgement from the ICJ and we don't need the IN or the UNSC. We have formed a coalition of the willing 138 states to enforce this judgement. Then people will be saying Israel should have jumped on those 1967 boarders when Obama was offering them.Over the course of the year, he said, Council members had expressed concern at, and many condemned, the steady expansion of Israeli settlements, calling them illegal under international law or illegitimate.
On January 21, 2009 the Palestinian National Authority submitted a declaration to the International Criminal Court, in accordance with Article 12(3) of the Rome Statute of the ICC, accepting the Jurisdiction of the ICC. On April 3, 2012 the ICC Prosecutor declared himself unable to determine that Palestine is a "state" for the purposes of the Rome Statute. Guess what question the greater majority of the world just answered for the ICC Posecutor today? Non member observer STATE.
The ICC has Jurisdiction on crimes commited on or after July 1, 2002. They have jurisduction under three circumstances. They are if the accused is a national of a state party, if the alleged crime took place on the territory of a state party or if a situation is referred to the Court by the UNSC.
Ahhhhhh, the banquet table is set. The sword of Damocles is in place. Now we just need King Netanyahu at the table and let the festivities begin.
Haha......unbiased indeed! Even an organization as lame as the UN can't hide it's true feelings.
Hours before the United Nations General Assembly voted to recognize the Palestinian Authority as a non-member observer state, the official U.N. Twitter account made a very unfortunate one-character typo.
"On Day of Solidarity with Palestinians, Ban Ki-moon stresses urgency of reaching 1-state solution," read the tweet.
Do you acknowledge the constant harassment and humiliation and denial of necessary medical services the Palestinians endure and many die from?
Do you acknowledge that the Palestinians are tired of more than 50 years of living under cruel occupation, enduring the theft of their land and destruction of their homes?
