YNet News: “First details emerge after three months of negotiations; Israel’s Livni, Molcho uncoordinated, Kerry threatens to allow Palestinians to join ICC.
As per Israel’s demand, the meetings thus far centered on the security issue. There have also been discussions on borders and water issues.
In terms of borders, the Palestinians proposed reverting to the 1967 lines with land swaps. Israel’s starting point was to mark the Palestinian state’s borders within the separation fence outline, with Israeli presence in the Jordan Valley.”
Opinion: John Rambo Kerry is threating the side that freed 54 Palestinian murderers of Jewish citizens.
Omega Letter July 2, 2004 “In July 1998 in Rome, the UN convened the “United Nations Diplomatic Conference of Plenipotentiaries on the Establishment of an International Criminal Court,” to establish a permanent international tribunal to try individuals for “the most serious offenses of global concern.”
Apparently, the General Assembly wearied of trying to define crimes before prosecuting them so they created the ICC to prosecute the crime of “aggression,” although, 50 years later, they still haven’t defined it.
Once established, the court will claim jurisdiction over every person in the world; grant the ICC prosecutor extraordinary powers; require maximum U.S. monetary support – but minimum U.S. influence – and grant ICC officials lifetime immunity.
In the United States, we would have to forfeit protection against double jeopardy. The ICC retains the right to review U.S. court decisions and re-try individuals if the ICC determines decisions “were not conducted independently or impartially,” or were for the purpose of “shielding the person concerned from criminal responsibility.
On Monday May 6, 2002 the Bush administration announced that the U.S. would ‘unsign’ the treaty signed by former President Clinton, angering those same international elitists and Ivory Tower editorialists who then made it their mission to convince America to get rid of George Bush and replace him with someone more like good ol’ Bill.”
The March 9, 2011 headline on the Hill (.com) website said this:
“ Obama’s support of the international criminal court: Worrisome.”
