    "The plan is for the Report to go from the UNHRC to the General Assembly, where a full, public discussion can be held, avoiding the US veto. The GA can then send it to the ICC at The Hague..." Uhmm, well no actually it can't. Perhaps instead of bloviating about what you would LIKE to be the law, you might actually want to look at the jurisdiction of the Court under the Rome Statute (hint: Art. 12 &13). The UNGA has NO such authority; the power lies with the Security Council to make such a reference -- and do I also have to tell you about how the veto works? I'm no huge fan of Israel, but they must love having people like you as their intellectual foils. But do keep us posted with any other hot tips on what "the plan" is...

Senator Bernie Sanders
Bernie Sanders is smart to keep his mouth shut about Israel

The U.S. presidential candidate has the Democratic progressive vote in his pocket and is wise not to reveal that, on the Middle East, he stands more to the right than his fans would like him to.

Why this liberal Zionist now supports BDS

Calling the occupation 'unsustainable' is how liberal Zionists ease their conscience and excuse their timidity, by telling themselves it can’t last. But it will last – unless we start acting more like radicals.
