Gravity brings the OTP down to earth

Thousands of Turks greet the Mavi Marmara as it returns to Istanbul
Monday, July 20, 2015 - 11:48

It was the International Criminal Court in a nutshell: last Thursday, Pre-Trial Chamber I decided to hand down its decision on the Mavi Marmara incident – at 17:30 in the afternoon. My frustration over the notoriously poor timing of the ICC was quickly replaced with childish enthusiasm.

The comment of The Hague University is very nescecary to understand the justice hub story. I totally agree with him/her. The version of justice hub is extremely difficult and incoherent, sorry to say. The picture of the story is very strong and my compliments for the cartoonist. It's a pity that the brilliant cartoon does not fit with the unreadable article, that will lead the reader into endless circles of ambiguity.

The Hague University

Very lengthy article, it revolved around hypothetical propositions which made the article utterly vague. The writer elaborated on speculations and has avoided the essential merits of the PA legal accession to the ICC. This gives the impression that the U.S. which -is not party to the Rome Statute-has the strongest hand over the ICC; such statement is utterly repugnant as it will undermine the Court's integrity, and make it as a silly tool in the hand of the U.S. The path of justice through the ICC has nothing to do with the path towards peace.

The Palestinian accession to the ICC will help to push Israel to accept the fact that it is illegally occupying Palestinian and other Arab Territories, and it is time now after 50 years of occupation to pay the price of violating international law and not implementing related security council resolutions.

The writer has confirmed the paradox which was reflected in his article! In international communities' eyes, no justice without peace and no peace can be achieved without justice, he tried to convince the reader that justice could be traded for peace; which is utterly unrealistic. The writer avoided the very clear fact that Palestinians have fed up after 50 years of illegal Israeli occupation which never been resolved through either negotiations or by the UN security council resolutions,for example, Res. 242 and other resolutions have never been implemented by Israel.

Justice must be prevaild, and the ICC must be kept away from the filth of politics, and the biased academic opinions. Otherwise, we are going to witness a severe collapse of the ICC which represents an integral part of the international justice system.
