Palestinians to file ICC case against Israel in April: PLO

The Palestinians are to lodge their first complaint against Israel for alleged war crimes at the International Criminal Court on April 1, a senior official told AFP on Monday.

“One of the first important steps will be filing a complaint against Israel at the ICC on April 1 over the (2014) Gaza war and settlement activity,” said Mohammad Shtayyeh, a member of the executive committee of the Palestine Liberation Organisation (PLO).

    April fools!

    I guess it depends on if the ICC allows all the fake dead to testify or not.

    Then we will see how morally bankrupt the icc is.

  • Ron MacDonald

    Palestinian war crimes don’t count.

    That is a f*cking joke. They provoked the war and hid behind civilians while firing rockets at civilian. I am beginning to feel a deep sense of hatred…The world is like a Kafka novel.

    I wonder what standing the PLO will have now that it has been effectively convicted of war crimes by an American court.

    The PLO lawsuit could very well backfire if Israel files a countersuit.

  • Any court which judges against Israel will simply lose all credibility. The ICC will simply disappear as a biased and unjust organization.
