This means a lot to the Palestinian people and the ICC access, irrespective of eventual outcome, gives them a little more weight in negotiations with Israel who always approach the issue from a position of disproportional power. So every bit counts.
A d**k move from Barack and a p***y follow up from our 52nd state (UK is the 51st). With 70%+ American Jews consistently voting Democrat and supporting the 2 state solution, this type of subservience to the AIPAC agenda, even on a harmless symbolic gesture, is effedup to say the least.
Maybe the prophesies are real and only divine intervention executed by the Messiah (PBUH) in the 2400s can bring real peace to the holy land in the form of a one state solution where the rights of every individual is zealously guarded against majority opinion. Sadly, the Messiah (PBUH) isn't coming anytime soon, he's not even calling or emailing really, and we need to take some responsibility to do the best we can. It's a damn shame that the revolutionary republic of Jefferson, Franklin, Sam Adams, Madison, JQ Adams, Lincoln, Douglass, Grant, FDR, Eisenhower and MLK has neither the will nor the balls to do the right thing even under Obama.
"And do not curse those who call on other than GOD, lest they blaspheme and curse GOD, out of ignorance. We have adorned the works of every group in their eyes. Ultimately, they return to their Lord, then He informs them of everything they had done." (Qur'an 6:108)
