Palestinians Apply to International Criminal Court

In a case of classic chutzpah, the Palestinian Authority under Mahmoud Abbas has applied for full participant status at the International Criminal Court, where they hop to press war crimes charges against Israel.

This follows the refusal of the UN Security Council to grant statehood to the Palestinians. But if the Palestinians think they are going to drag Israel before the ICC, they may find it is a double-edged sword. Suicide bombings, kidnappings, murders of civilians, these are the things that Palestinians do best. They may find themselves on the wrong side of the dock someday.

Being a member of the ICC will mean that Israel can bring charges to the Fakistinians.
