    RAMALLAH, West Bank (AP) — A senior Palestinian official is warning that the West Bank government will pursue war crime charges against Israel if it doesn't stop settlement construction.

    Palestinian official Nabil Shaath said late Monday that "many countries" have urged the Palestinian Authority not to use its new status to seek war crimes charges against Israel at the International Criminal Court, a U.N. body.

    Shaath says that "by continuing these war crimes of settlement activities" on occupied territories, Israel is "pushing and forcing us to go to the ICC."

    The US doesn't even pay any attention to the war crimes tribunal, why should anyone else?

    No war crimes. The Tinman is just reporting another Palestinian Arab brain fart. Hanan Ashrawii cut another one of this type yesterday.

    P F Tinmore, et al,

    As I mentioned before, the Palestinians may have a legitimate cause of action. And this is one that I have mention "specifically" before on on of these threads.

    (COMMENT)

    This particular cause of action is under the Rome Statues. It has to do with the Administration and Protection of the "Occupied Territories."

    Now it becomes a legal question because Israel is not a signatory to the ICC Statues and the US has "stated its intention NOT to ratify" (or essentially unsigned) the ICC statues.

    Is this a slam dunk case. I don't think so. But it is a legitimate cause of action and course of action. It is a non-violent solution to a Arab-Israeli disagreement on the Palestinian Issue. It is something that should have been pursued a decade ago.

    Like I said, neither the Palestinians or Israel have clean hands. Each has made mistakes along the way.

    Most Respectfully,
    R

    What hundreds of thousands, Ima? Have you forgotten that most of the people killed in Iraq were killed by outside Muslim insurgents who came pouring in because they didn't want Iraq to be a democracy.
