Jewish Organizations Unite in Condemnation of Islamist Massacre of Egyptian Christians

American Jewish organizations were at one on Friday in condemning the murder by Islamist terrorists of at least 26 Egyptian...

The PLO’s Mohamed Shtayyeh said that the case will focus on last summer’s Operation Protective Edge and Israeli construction in the disputed territories.

“One of the first important steps will be filing a complaint against Israel at the ICC on April 1 over the [summer 2014] Gaza war and settlement activity,” said Shtayyeh, AFP reported.

The Palestinians made the request to join the ICC in January, and their membership in the organization should be formalized by the time they plan to file the legal action against Israel. Israel has already responded to the Palestinians’ request to join the court by withholding millions of dollars in tax payments that the Jewish state had been collecting for the Palestinian Authority.

  • The PA seems to have evidence of a sense of irony. Hamas, part of the PA, fire thousands of rockets into southern Israel’s civilian population and when Israel finally responds, the PA accuses Israel of war crimes for not giving in. Can the ICC please investigate the deaths of 160+ children who died digging Hamas terror tunnels. See The Journal of Palestine Studies, summer 2012, article by Nicholas Pelham.

    AND, IF THERE IS NO PALESTINE THEN THERE ARE NO PALESTINIANS

    EITHER.

    THERE ARE MANY THOUSANDS OF HANDFULS OF FALLEN JORDANIANS……ETC ETC AND INCLUSIVE OF THOSE THAT WILL NOT BE ACCEPTED…..THIS IS FAR MORE REAL….ALL OF THOSE IN THIS ‘HELL HOLE’ OF THEIR OWN CONSTRUCTION ARE THE BANDITS OF THE MIDDLE EAST…..AND, YOU THINK WE SHOULD BELIEVE THEY
    ARE A COUNTRY…….

    A NICE MORNING CHUCKLE FROM A WORLD THAT IS CONSTANTLY JUGGLING THEIR WORDS AND SHOTS AT JEWS BECAUSE EVEN THE JEWS HAVE STRUGGLES GETTING ALONG.

    WHAT HAPPENED TO ‘ I WILL’ AND ‘I WILL DO’……OBVIOUSLY MISUNDERSTOOD OR OVER THE CENTURIES BLOCKED BECAUSE IT INVADES ON ‘ALL GOOD TIMES AHEAD FOR ALL”

    TO THOSE….I SAY GOOD BYE……

    THANK YOU FOR THE MIRACLE OF THIS DAY……I AM ADDING THIS BECAUSE I KNOW WE ARE BEING PROTECTED…’JEWS’……AND OTHERS……..SO EACH DAY I WILL HONOR THIS UNDERSTANDING THAT EACH MOMENT OBAMA AND HIS PUPPET MAKER OR AVATARS ARE ‘FORMER’
