ICC to Open Full Investigation into Settlements, 2014 War on Gaza

 “It doesn't even enter their heads to build up a Jewish state in Palestine for the purpose of living there; all they want is a central organization for their international world swindler, endowed with its own sovereign rights and removed from the intervention of other states: a haven for convicted scoundrels and a university for budding crooks. Adolf Hitler:*



 NSC officials fear the preliminary probe will be raised to a full-blown investigation sometime in 2018, raising concerns the court could try Israeli officials for alleged “war crimes”

  “Israel may have the right to put others on trial, but certainly no one has the right to put the Jewish people and the State of Israel on trial.” -- Israeli Prime Minister Ariel Sharon*

   The admission: In a speech before the World Zionist Congress in Jerusalem, Netanyahu described a meeting between Husseini and Hitler in November, 1941: "Hitler didn't want to exterminate the Jews at the time, he wanted to expel the Jew.*

Israel disputes the ICC’s jurisdiction, since it is not a member of the ICC, and says there is no “State of Palestine” to request ICC intervention. It also argues that its own more than 30 criminal investigations make any ICC intervention superfluous. jpost.com

The International Criminal Court in The Hague is planning on investigating Israeli leaders over Israeli settlement expansion in Jerusalem and West Bank, as well as the 2014 aggression on Gaza titled ‘Operation Protective Edge.’

According to a report by Channel 10 Monday evening, the Israeli National Security Council warned Israeli lawmakers in the Knesset’s Foreign Affairs and Defense Committee that the international court is planning on opening an investigation later this year into the 2014 war with Hamas, as well settlements in the West Bank.

PNN further reports that prosecutors at the International Criminal Court, at the behest of the Palestinian Authority, have opened cursory examinations in both matters, but NSC officials fear the preliminary probe will be raised to a full-blown investigation sometime in 2018, raising concerns the court could try Israeli officials for alleged “war crimes”, based on the complaints issued by the Palestinian Authority.

The deadly 2014 war on Gaza  killed over 2,000 Palestinians in Gaza, approximately a quarter of whom were children, and left at least 11,000 permanently wounded. On the Israeli side, 74 were killed, 68 of them soldiers.
