It's a good symbolic vote, because this puts responsibility on the Palestinians. I study international law, and the actions Hamas has taken would immediately draw indictments against extreme Palestinian movements. Their membership in the ICC, obliges them and ANY nation a signatory to arrest someone for "inflicting terror on a civilian population". Israel and the US aren't signatories and aren't obliged to arrest or charge anyone. Also if the Palestinians refuse to arrest anyone indicted they are required to be held accountable. So, yes it is disputable with regard to territory, but the ICC is going to be a problem for Palestine.
