PA Planning To File War Crimes Charges Against Israel In The International Court Of Justice


Former PA (Palestine Authority) senior negotiator, Dr. Saeb Erekat, announced the PA is planning to file charges of war crimes against Israel in the International Court of Justice in The Hague. Erekat refers once again to the “Settlements in the West Bank”, meaning the yishuvim throughout Yehuda and Shomron, which the international community prefers to label the “West Bank” of the Jordan River.

Erekat added in his statements the decision to move ahead on the International Court front was approved by PA Chairman Mahmoud Abbas (Abu Mazen) and other senior PA officials. They explain the opening of the new US Embassy in Jerusalem and the deaths of so many Gazans in border clashes were the straw that broke the camel’s back, compelling them to take their case to the international forum.

With both Israel and the White House calling on the PA to renew talks to reach a peace agreement, it would appear the PA’s move to the International Court will further distance any chance at a sustainable peace between Israel and the PA.

  1. Why of course, they think the Hague is a kangaroo court like all of theirs. Israel has enormous evidence of PA injustices to their own people, embezzlement and misuse of aid, promotion of murdering civilians, sabotage, kidnapping / murder for ransom, attempting to overthrow various governments, aiding terrorists from various groups, and on and on. They’re one of the most corrupt Islamic failures, who the Jew haters herald as the victims. Never missing the chance to miss a chance, they wallow in their incompetence and lack of any national identity beyond being local instigators of violence on behalf of the Islamic militant fantasy. These people are so out of step with constructive development, blinded by their hatred, jealousies, and worthless role in promoting peace, that they should be relocated to some Islamic country that forces them to normalize. Unfortunately, none of the Muslim countries really want them (they’re all clan societies), because they’ve been assigned to be local instigators. Instead of giving them money, build communities for them on the banks of the Red Sea in Saudi Arabia, near Sharmaa or on Tiran Island. Otherwise, they’ll continue to drag down the region, into the hole they’re in. Let’s move on!
