Israel's Foreign Ministry ordered to 'reassess' EU involvement with Palestinians after decision to label West Bank goods; 'decision is almost completely devoid of any real significance,' official says.23:15 29.11.15 | 10 comments
Logios, please read the UN Universal Declaration of Human Rights. Joining the ICC as a non-member state establishes their 'jurisdiction' beyond the Green Line. The ICC applies to states but the Universal Declaration applies to people. Consequently, the settlers have all the rights in the Declaration and Palestine is denied the right to 'exile' it's Jewish residents (19th Article, I believe). Consequently, the only way to evacuate Jewish settlers is to agree to have Israel take them out BEFORE Palestine establishes jurisdiction over them. I think that the Pro-Pals don't get this. This is partially because Jews are always wrong (no matter what). But it is also the sincere belief of pro Palestinians that Human Rights law only applies against Israel and Jews, and never applies 'for' them. Consequently, they can't understand that indiscriminate rocketing of Israeli towns inside the Green Line can possibly be considered a War Crime. I've been trying to start a debate on the applicability of the UN Declaration on Human Rights to the settler issue. I think that the Palestinians are trapping themselves into accepting a large and permanent hostile (armed) minority. They should negotiate removal of settlers before declaration of a State.
