Now that didn’t take too long now did it?
Talk about moral inversion. The Hamas is now doing exactly what I said the Palestinian Arabs would do in the wake of the PLO’s elevated status to an Observer state at the UN. This begins the first in a long line of lawfare motions against Israel to muddy the waters over its legitimacy, and to demonize it in the international court system. It would hardly surprise if the Fatah was behind the initiative from the very beginning.

Hamas official Ismail al-Ashqar said Thursday that the terrorist group is seeking a lawsuit at the International Criminal Court against Major-General Eitan Dangot, coordinator of government activities in the territories, for what it sees as his responsibility for the Gaza blockade.
“The blockade is a crime against humanity,” al-Ashqar said. “The crime is directed against women and children and that is why there is no other choice but to sue him as a war criminal.”
