International Criminal Court Gives Palestinians Observer Status


international-criminal-courtThe Palestinians this week became an observer at the annual meeting of the International Criminal Court.

The symbolic change upgrades their status, but they still have not come under the court’s jurisdiction.

While the Palestinians have repeatedly threatened to ratify the Rome Statute, the treaty that established the International Criminal Court, they have not yet done so. Such a step could empower the court to investigate accusations by the Palestinians against Israel as well as accusations by Israel against the Palestinians.

    It is they who know the work of international criminality more than most others.
    Does this strange organization think they could be trusted? It just shows how stupid they are!
