BREAKING NEWS!

Today, prosecutors at the Hague-based International Criminal Court (ICC) will open a preliminary inquiry into possible war crimes in the Palestinian territories, the first formal step that could lead to charges against officials there and in Israel, the court has said.

They will determine whether preliminary findings merit a full investigation into alleged atrocities, which could result in charges against individuals on either the Israeli or Palestinian side.

“A preliminary examination is not an investigation but a process of examining the information available in order to reach a fully informed determination on whether there is a reasonable basis to proceed with an investigation pursuant to the criteria established by the Rome Statute,” the court’s statement said on Friday.

Palestine applied for ICC membership in early January

Israeli Foreign Minister Avigdor Lieberman condemned the ICC’s decision as “scandalous”.

In a statement, Lieberman said that the sole purpose of the preliminary examination was to “try to harm Israel’s right to defend itself from terror”.

He said the decision was “solely motivated by political anti-Israel considerations,” adding that he would recommend against cooperating with the probe.

Speaking to Al Jazeera from Ramallah, Ammar Hijazi, a Palestinian foreign ministry official, said the Palestinian Authority believed that all necessary aspects were featured in the case.

“The gravity aspect is there, as civilians were targeted [in the war in Gaza],” he said.

“Palestine is ready to fully cooperate if there are any violations committed during the war by the Palestinian side as well.”


Palestinian foreign minister Riyad al-Malki told the AFP news agency: “Everything is going according to plan, no state and nobody can now stop this action we requested … In the end, a full investigation will follow the preliminary one.”

Palestine joining ICC

UN Secretary-General Ban Ki-moon has recently confirmed that the Palestinians will formally become a member of the ICC on April 1 and the court officials said that jurisdiction would date back to June 13, 2014.

This means the court’s prosecutor could investigate the 50-day war between Israel and Palestinian groups in the Gaza Strip in July and August 2014, during which more than 2,300 Palestinians, mostly civilians, were killed, according to Gazan medical sources. Israel said 67 soldiers and six civilians died in the same war.

The ICC handles war crimes, crimes against humanity and genocide. It could exercise jurisdiction over such crimes committed by anyone on Palestinian territory. Israel is not a an ICC member, but its citizens could be tried on accusations of crimes.

Earlier in January, the Palestinians delivered to the UN headquarters in New York documents to join the Rome Statute of the ICC and other international treaties, in a move that has heightened tensions with Israel.

  1. The rhythm of your work had me visualizing a group of Palestinian children jumping rope to the rhyme until their parents showed up to ask if they could borrow the rope for a while for a more serious application…

  2. The important matter about ashkenazi jews is not their lack of jewish DNA but rather their talmudic religion and assumption of being { divinely chosen ones } ; both result in hazardous consequences for humanity regardless of what biblical territorial claims they make .

  3. Muslims are on listening. The debate is between the good people of in West and people such as you. May be West and NATO have no idea where Iraq, Yemen, Afghanistan, Syria, Pakistan, Libya, Somalia, Lebanon and Gaza or West Bank are. I am sure one day one of you will discover the savage lands give them food to eat, oil to run their industries, education to think with and plenty of love so they stop bombing themselves Daisy Cutters , Bunker Busters and mini nukes.

  4. Get ready for some Muslim extremists or ISIS to attack the ICC and hold hostages etc.
    Looks like The Hague/Netherlands will be the next site for a terrorist attack.
    I hope the Dutch are prepared!

    • Pure sarcasm.
      But you,ve got to love it when the Israeli,s are under pressure AND they don,t like it one bit!

  5. We must not forget that Israel was found guilty of crimes against humanity at the Kuala Lumpur trial. Since then three planes have crashed all operating from Malaysia. Bye Bye Israel all your BS is catching up with you. Maybe you would have had a chance if you could have bribed the entire world, but then again you don’t own it.

  6. Snoop Dough :
    Scandalous is Israel snuffing international law, now next time they will think twice before going on another genocidal rampage.There has to be balance for there to ever be peace. Zionism is not a religion; it is a power cult that represents the pure embodiment of greed and evil. It is arrogance towards all others that are not part of their cult.

    Funny, same could be said about USA. We sure “fixed” Iraq now, didn’t we? How about Ukraine?

    • You’re right, Ukraine and Iraq was conceived in Tel Aviv, executed by the traitors within, a marriage made in hell!

  7. When you have got the only ‘Super Power’ (sic) left in the World …who are shit scared of Israel – it begs the question who allowed them to get into this position…Federal Reserve sure, but surely the silencing of people like Henry Ford wouldn’t have happened in a press that was not Jew controlled. The irony of “Je suis Charlie” vis-a-v-is “FREE SPEECH”…is not lost on me.

  8. This is our world reality ever since Nuremberg or Nürnberg to be precise. United States, United Kingdom and Israel were/are never held accountable for anything from a banana slip to mass murder atrocities.

  9. Scandalous is Israel snuffing international law, now next time they will think twice before going on another genocidal rampage.There has to be balance for there to ever be peace. Zionism is not a religion; it is a power cult that represents the pure embodiment of greed and evil. It is arrogance towards all others that are not part of their cult. I can well imagine that DC is in a panic. That means by extension those equally-schizoid Zionist-loving-thugs in Washington, DC are aiding and abetting war criminals, too! I can well imagine that DC is in a panic. They have nations that they blackmail and extort, but friends are not to be found for this bunch of whining, schizophrenic, belligerent, threatening bunch of self-serving war criminals. The time has come to do just that and it is way past time to do that. We have enough fruit cakes in this world without turning a blind eye to the biggest fruit loops of all.

    • Add: schizophrenic, belligerent, and purely psychopathic.

      Psychopathy (/saɪˈkɒpəθi/; also known as – though sometimes distinguished from – sociopathy /ˈsoʊsiəˌpæθi/) is traditionally defined as a personality disorder characterized by enduring antisocial behavior, diminished empathy and remorse, and disinhibited or bold behavior. It may also be defined as a continuous aspect of personality, representing scores on different personality dimensions found throughout the population in varying combinations. The definition of psychopathy has varied significantly throughout the history of the concept; different definitions continue to be used that are only partly overlapping and sometimes appear contradictory.

    • Let’s hope it amounts to that. Recall that France had acknowledged the Palestinian State, and psycho Benni forewarned them they were making a grave mistake. A not-so-veiled threat he apparently made good on. Same for Norway, you might recall.
      Remember also the unannounced ‘cargo’ Boeing777 ‘escorted’ from Dutch airspace whilst numerous heads of state were in conference at The Hague. These psycho boyz took off the gloves long ago…
