Erekat: We'll complain to ICC against Trump
Arutz Sheva ^ | 31/1/18 | Dalit Halevi

Posted on 01/31/2018 12:42:15 AM PST by Eleutheria5

Saeb Erekat, secretary of the PLO Executive Committee, on Tuesday announced that the "State of Palestine" plans to appeal to the International Criminal Court (ICC) in The Hague against U.S. President Donald Trump's peace plan and his recognition of Jerusalem as the capital of Israel.

In an interview with a Turkish news agency, Erekat said that U.S. policy is contrary to the decisions of international institutions, which regard East Jerusalem as territory that is "occupied" by Israel. Erekat further stated that the Palestinian Authority (PA) intends to turn once again to the UN Security Council with a request that it recognize it as a full member state in the United Nations.

He claimed that the United States strives to remove Jerusalem from the negotiating table, to dry up UNRWA by reducing financial aid to the organization, to leave the IDF in the Jordan Valley, leave the settlement blocs intact and allow IsrSaael to control the air space and the ports.

He added that according to the American view, only under these conditions would a Palestinian state be declared and its capital would be in the suburbs of Jerusalem. The PA officially joined the ICC on April 1, 2015, and immediately filed a series of legal complaints with the court. In addition to claiming that Israel committed war crimes during the 2014 Gaza war, it also claimed that Israeli “settlements” are “an ongoing war crime”. Earlier this month, PA chairman Abbas announced his intention to file lawsuits against Israel at the ICC.

Saeb Erekat backwards is Takere Beas. Doesn’t mean anything, just like their complaint.

Does not matter, ICC can do nothing about the U.S. recognition of Jerusalem as the capital of Israel....nothing. PA is a bunch a whining crybabies - let them know that KMart has a blue light special on Kleenex, yo.

The real “crime” he wants prosecuted, is the cutting off of his welfare checks.

The USA is apparently not going to play their game anymore, and is no longer going to pay for them to play it.

Might be time to grow up and get real jobs.

Nod. Thought my /snark tag made clear that was my point, too.

I know how to add insult to injury to the “Palestinian Authority”.
“Accidentally” deport a bunch of MS-13 gang members to Gaza, claim paperwork snafu due to leftover Obama admin red tape, then neglect to ever pick them back up.

And just when they were in the process of using that money to buy Abbas a new $50 million dollar jet. Send in “Airplane Repo!”
It’s long past time when we quit funding these turds. As far as I am concerned, they can all “flee” into the Mediterranean and drown.

They would do better complaining to the Interstate Commerce Commission.

If any of America’s enemies listened to Trump’s speech last night, they should be reconsidering pissing us off.
