ICC Second Vice-President Judge Kuniko Ozaki, in the presence of the President of the Assembly of States Parties, H.E. Sidiki Kaba, presents Palestinian Authority Foreign Minister Riad Al-Malki with a special edition of the Rome Statute .

The Palestinian Authority has announced it plans to submit detailed files to the Geneva office of the International Criminal Court on Thursday, alleging Israeli “war crimes” against its leadership and people.

In a statement released by the Palestine Liberation Organization – the only entity legally entitled to represent Arabs living in Judea, Samaria and Gaza – it was clear the files were prepared as some sort of alternative to The Schabes Report issued earlier in the week by the United Nations Human Rights Council.

“The delivery of this information is considered a fundamental step in the process of ending Israeli impunity and bringing justice to the Palestinian people,” the statement read. “The files to be presented to the court refer to war crimes and crimes committed by individuals of the Israeli leadership… The files include statistics on settlements, prisoners, as well as statistics on Israel’s aggression and attack on Gaza 2014.”

The PLO added the report, to be submitted by PA Foreign Minister Riad al-Malki and a team of lawyers, had been “months” in the making.

Foreign Ministry spokesperson Emmanuel Nachshon called it “nothing more than Palestinian public relations,” saying the report was a “crude and cynical attempt to politicize the work of the ICC.” He added, “We hope the ICC will not fall into the trap.”

  1. If the PA claimed Israel had made the West Bank flat,the, court would condemn Israel. Obama would threaten Israel that the US will vote for Palestinian state,including all of Jerusalem. The truth no longer matters. Truth does, not apply to the process of de!onizing Israel and tje a ttempts of western governments such as the US to destroy her.

  2. The Arab-Palestinians have the right to go back to the Arab countries where they from originally came from and not steal Jewish land and resources. They educate their children and the masses to commit terror and violence which is counter productive.
    It is enough that they got Jordan as the Arab State after taking it from the allocation as territory for the Jewish people according to international treaties and laws from 1920.
    The Arabs countries also persecuted and expelled over a million Jewish families (who lived there for over 2,400 years) from their countries, confiscated their assets, businesses, homes and Real estate property. Over 650,00 Jewish families and their children of these expelled Jewish families and their children were resettled in Greater Israel (the balance of the expelled Jews from Arab countries settled in other countries). The Land the Arab countries confiscated from the Jewish people 120,440 sq. km. or 75,000 sq. miles, which is over 5-6 times the size of Israel, and its value today is the trillions of dollars.
    Let the Arab-Palestinians relocate to those properties and leave Israel permanently. These actions will bring about peace and prosperity. They will be able to utilize funds devoted to weapons and war and divert those resources to improve the standard of living and create a prosperous economy, which will benefit everyone .
