An official website run by the political party of Palestinian Authority President Mahmoud Abbas posted an image on Saturday showing Prime Minister Benjamin Netanyahu next to a hangman’s noose with the phrase “coming soon.”

The image came days after Palestinian officials applied for membership in the International Criminal Court in the Hague. It was flagged by Israel-based watchdog Palestinian Media Watch.

The image was displayed on Fatah’s official Facebook page and included a logo of the ICC.

On Friday the PA submitted paperwork to join the ICC in a unilateral move strongly opposed by Israel and the US. Joining the ICC could open the way for the PA to sue Israel or IDF soldiers in the ICC on charges of war crimes.

Netanyahu has vowed to protect IDF soldiers from being prosecuted at the court…

    Brilliant. You want Netanyahu in the Hague? At least have the good manners to defeat Israel in battle first.

    Wait, that won’t happen, will it? You only managed to get Milosevic in the dock for crimes against Islam because Serbia didn’t have nukes.

    Israel should hang the Hamas leader who gave orders to killed the 3 teens from Israel,they set the fire and when Israel reacts with bombs they cry like innocents.

      Maur, you’re starting to impress me with your sound logic. I find that somewhat scary, but well done.

        One must give credit where credits due.

    Like other schemes against Israel, this will backfire. Abbas is becoming like Elmer Fudd, concocting ultimately ineffectual strategies to snare the “cwazy wabbit.”

    The ICC does not impose a death penalty.

      The Pals are opening themselves up to counter-accusations.

    Palestinians are the real war criminals. They target civilians and use civilians as human shields.

    And desperation creeps onto the world stage. The only Country in the Middle East where an Arab can live free is Israel. How many arab countries have given Palestinian Arabs any citizenship. And the answer is 00000000000000000000000000000000000000000000000000000000000000000000000000000000000000000000000000000000000000000000000000000000000000000000

    Never interrupt an Arab seeking to demonstrate the expanses of his stupidity.
