In a key defeat for NGO "Lawfare", the Office of the Prosecutor of the International Criminal Court on Tuesday decided that it does not have jurisdiction to begin an investigation over cases related to the 2008-09 Gaza War because "Palestine" is not a state. But this victory over Israel's Palestinian foes may not be long lasting.

The organization says that in 2011, 676 people were executed with full public disclosure worldwide. The rise in Iran and Saudi Arabia alone accounted for the net increase of 149 recorded executions as compared to 2010. But the press release, which will be used by news outlets everywhere, is silent on executions which took place in the Gaza strip under the aegis of Hamas.

Watch compilation of rocket attack filmed by civilians. The cease fire which was supposedly declared last Tuesday morning remains more wishful thinking than an actual cessation of violence. Or perhaps, as some experts have said, this is the Islamic Jihad's new style of hurting Israel, delivering the cuts of a thousand knives in groups of only three a day, to make any serious IDF reaction appear "disproportionate."
