The shooting in Paris came just at the moment the UN confirmed that the Palestians are becoming ICC member.
Acceptance to the ICC will allow the Palestinians to pursue war crimes charges against Israel, a high-stakes move that has been condemned by Israel and the US.
The Israeli administration immediately applied financial pressure on the Palestinian Authority, freezing the transfer of half a billion shekels (over $127 million) in monthly tax revenues it collected on behalf of the Palestinians. The US joined the financial pressure on the Palestinian Authority on Monday, when the Obama administration announced a review of America’s annual $440 million aid package to the Palestinians. http://rt.com/news/220435-palestine-icc-israel-prosecution/
On January 8th, 2015, the well-known war criminal Benjamin Netanyahu declared during a meeting with Norwegian Foreign Minister Borge Brende in Jerusalem: ‘The same forces that are attacking Europe are attacking Israel’ (Netanyahu’s government announced that it would advance plans to build about 1,000 Jewish-only housing units in east Jerusalem despite stiff international criticism).
After the Paris Attack, Israeli settlers accompanied by security forces stormed al-Aqsa Mosque in East al-Quds (Jerusalem) and American senators warned the Palestinian leadership over its bid to join the International Criminal Court.
