    US to threaten sanctions against International Criminal Court, close PLO office in Washington

    (CNN)The Trump administration is expected to raise the specter of sanctions against the International Criminal Court (ICC) if it moves to investigate the US or Israel, according to an official familiar with planned remarks by US national security adviser John Bolton.

    Bolton, a former US Ambassador to the United Nations, will lay out a new campaign Monday to punish countries and individuals that try to prosecute American personnel, the US or its allies -- in particular Israel -- at the ICC, the official said.
    Bolton will call for the protection of such allies "by any means necessary" against the jurisdiction of the Netherlands-based court, which the US does not recognize.
    The measures could include travel bans on ICC judges and prosecutors and a freeze on their assets, as well as those of other entities trying to bring the US to the court, the official said. Any countries that assist prosecutions risk losing foreign aid.


    The potential prosecution of US service members in Afghanistan is of primary importance to the administration, the official said.

    Bolton is also set to announce the closure of the Palestine Liberation Organization office in Washington, the official said. Bolton is expected to tie its closing to the Palestinians' refusal to engage in the peace process and to threats by Palestinian leader Mahmoud Abbas to take Israel to the ICC.

    The State Department officially announced the decision to close the office in a statement Monday.
    "We have permitted the PLO office to conduct operations that support the objective of achieving a lasting, comprehensive peace between Israelis and the Palestinians since the expiration of a previous waiver in November 2017," department spokesperson Heather Nauert said in the statement. "However, the PLO has not taken steps to advance the start of direct and meaningful negotiations with Israel.
    "To the contrary, PLO leadership has condemned a U.S. peace plan they have not yet seen and refused to engage with the U.S. government with respect to peace efforts and otherwise," Nauert's statement continued.

    You live in Europe. What are the odds that America, or Americans will get a fair trial there?

    I live in the U.S.A, but I'm not too fond of Zionists.

    The U.S. has badly shamed itself. If I were the rest of the world, I’d be distancing myself from the U.S. as quickly as possible.

    Well, I live in the USA too, and nothing I have seen out of Europe in my life, would make me trust them give America or Americans a fair trial.

    What makes you behave as if the U.S.A, and Israel haven't been involved in War Crimes?
