The International Criminal Court prosecutor is officially initiating a war crimes investigation into Israeli actions in “Palestinian territories,” according to news reports coming out today.
In its latest attack on Israel, the PLO has been validated by the International Criminal Court in The Hague (ICC), which decided on Feb. 5 that it can investigate alleged crimes by Israeli leaders in the West Bank, East Jerusalem and the Gaza Strip. Sadly this decision, in essence, is willful consent by the ICC to be misused as an unconventional weapon against the Jewish state in the hands of the PLO.
The ICC was created by the United Nations on July 1, 2002, under the Rome Statute, as a forum for prosecuting individuals accused of genocide, war crimes and crimes against humanity.
