PA Heads to The Hague, Hopes for War Crime Suit Against Israel

JewishPress Logo

The Fatah-led Ramallah-based Palestinian Authority Unity Government is heading to The Hague today to attempt to file suit against Israel in the International Criminal Court.

The PUG (PA), led by PLO Chairman Mahmoud Abbas, is hoping to charge Israel with war crimes over its counter terror Operation Protective Edge in Gaza.

It is likely the lawsuit will have little effect even if it is accepted by the Court, however; Israel is not a member of the ICC, which therefore has no jurisdiction over the Jewish State.

The Palestinian Arab entity was represented in The Hague by its foreign minister, Riad al-Maliki, according to Reuters.

  1. Hamas war crimes killing Arabs Christians and Muslims

  2. Paul W. Howe says:

    Evilness as usual…

  3. Who cares? We know in advance that Israel will be condemned and America will be silent.

  4. That’s a two way street & Abbas has more to loose, we’ve already prepared many cases against him & they’re ready to be filed. His lawyers have advised him not to try it.

  5. Leah Ganz says:

    Good luck liars!


  7. David Cohen says:

    It was probably what they had in mind to start with and why they escalated. The Palestinian Authority is broke and want to extort more money from Israel and the world. It also might have been anticipated by PM Netanyahu and why he kept agreeing to ceasefires they knew Hamas would break.

  8. Orah Peer says:

    Typical ungratefulnes;he owes his still being there to israel…Hamas will have killed him long ago if not for israel.

  9. We knew they have no heart, but now we also know they have no head

  10. Wilma Durbin says:

    They’ll try anything to stop Israel but will definitely lose !

  11. Go quickly you islamic animals.you think hague is of fools like you???Your works are seen in every nation where muslim is a resident.you all need to be taken to hague.

  12. Doesn’t the statement “counter terror” say it all. These people are idiots.

  13. I stand with israel…keep bombarding gaza,palestinians are in deep trouble

  14. I think they better look at the film the Hamas and Islamic rebels took of themselves. That is what a war crime is shooting civilians.

  15. Pallestience forefathers were with Hitler in his campain against Jews. So what is ther to expect. But to Think they can fool the whole World Before Hague is to much specially a they have hanged up their own Children on the walls of Buildings to protect themself.

  16. America is never silent only our crooked politicians.

  17. The pot calling the kettle black!!
    Oh well, its exactly the kid who kills his parents asking for mercy because he’s now an orphan. This man follows party line. Unfortunately, the UN seems to follow that line these days also. No common or rational sense!!

  18. we already know they will condemn Israel. What will the world say ? What will Obama say?

  19. Hank Lukas says:

    I thought it’s a war crime to fire missiles into country to terriorize the general civilian populations. Has anyone condemned Hamas and say they may have committed war crimes. It is also one sided against Israel. What is part of Hitler’s final solution? The holocaust has not end, in 2014 it is still going on.

  20. Thomas Wolfe says:

    I support Israel 100%

  21. Geela Gordon says:

    the only war crimes are from hamas

  22. Loren Renee says:

    We knew this 5 years ago. I’d say that the operation that will occur 5-10 years from now will yield same results. The actual details are irrelevant.

  23. Dawn Andrade says:

    I as a Canadian and my Prime Minister stand with Israel.

  24. I’m hoping to see Abbas hanged for war crimes.

  25. Dan Summer says:

    Go ahead but make sure you include Hamas using civilians as human shields and storing missiles in UN schools and shooting rockets at civilians

  26. is there NO SANITY in this world… I can’t believe sane people have so much hatred of Jews… you can’t be racist to anyone but a Jew… How many Hitlers are at large now…just looking for a way to create another holocaust. This boggles the mind that media would even give the PA or any other terrorist group the time of day let alone a platform to LIE!!!

  27. Gail Sados says:

    So absurd and so ridiculous…and yes, who cares….many more horses asses than horses in this world!

  28. There is no such place as Palestine. It is all Israeli land. Arabs do your homework.

  29. But nothing wrong with what Hamas does. Of course not.

  30. Sally Penso says:

    The guy has a little dick

  31. Karen Bryant says:

    Abbas and Hamas should be charged with crimes against their own Arab people.

  32. Judy Murad says:

    Be thankful Obama wasn’t president during the 9/11 terror attacks in the USA! He would have told New Yorkers to stay and not run! Worst president ever-after jimmy pro palestinian carter

  33. What a bunch of fools. It won’t fly and they will look just as stupid as they do now

  34. Now the fighting has ended, he finally pops his head up. Where was he hiding the past few weeks?

  35. Jo Offord says:

    Good luck with that one you nutter.
