PA files 'indictment' in ICC against U.S. over embassy move


... and he cannot lie
Feb 21, 2018

The Palestinian Authority said on Wednesday that it has filed an “indictment” with the International Criminal Court in the Hague against the US for moving its embassy from Tel Aviv to Jerusalem.

The “indictment” was submitted to the court by PA Foreign Minister Riad Malki on the first anniversary of the embassy relocation.

“One year after the (US President Donald) Trump administration carried out its provocative and illegal action, the State of Palestine continues to seek justice and accountability through the tools and mechanisms available to law-abiding and respecting States within the international system, Malki said in a statement published by the PA’s official news agency Wafa.

“The State of Palestine will continue to employ all available legal and diplomatic tools to defend the inalienable rights of the Palestinian people against all illegal acts of aggression and shall not surrender to political bullying and extortion.”

The submission of the “indictment” to the international court, Malki said, “comes as a continuation of the proceedings initiated by the State of Palestine since 29 September 2018 when it filed an application to initiate action against the US. The court, as a result, set 15 May 2019 as the date to submit these pleadings by the State of Palestine and November 15, 2019 by the US.”

The PA minister said that “the State of Palestine had based its case before the main judicial body of the United Nations on the Optional Protocol to the Vienna Convention on Diplomatic Relations on the Settlement of Disputes, which it acceded to on 22 March 2018, and the Vienna Convention on Diplomatic Relations, which it acceded to on 4 April 2014.”

This move, Malki added, “is an exercise by the State of Palestine of its sovereign right as a member state of the Vienna Convention on Diplomatic Relations and other relevant conventions, which is another legal right that Palestine exercises to defend its rights and interests against illegal actions by the US, to protect the city of Jerusalem, and to reject all illegal and unilateral measures practiced by the current US administration.”
The balls on these guys. The PA thinks it can tell the US where it can decide to puts its embassy LOL. As far as I know the US isn't a signator to the ICC anyways (???) but this is the height of chutzpa.

Any American supporting the PA needs to ask themselves why? Not only do they kill American citizens, but now they are taking you to court. Its high time this band of terrorist is sent back to Tunisa. Imagine Al-Qeda or ISIS taking the US to the ICC LOL.

This is probably the end of the road for the PA with this move.
