So much for Palestinians to identify with
Floyd was a career violent crim with convictions from armed robbery to drug possession ( a home invasion that involved pointing a gun at a pregnant woman which resulted in five-year prison sentence).

The Palestinians are upset about snack food

Sue the Palestinian Authority for Hamas war crimes
When life gives you lemons, make lemonade.
It seems very likely that the International Criminal Court (ICC) will decide to try Israel for alleged war crimes. They have already recognised the ‘State’ of Palestine, a victory for Palestinian weaponising of the ICC, even if the case never goes to trial.
Although I appreciate the reasons Israel (and America) have refused to sign on to the court I am worried that she will make the same mistake she made with the International Court of Justice (ICJ) of surrendering the field of battle to the enemy. I am concerned the court will rule against us in our absence.
Instead of taking the advantage, outclassing and outmaneuvering her opponents in court Israel is constantly ‘on the back foot’. Defensive rather than attacking.
We shouldn’t be. One thing Israel is not short of, is lawyers.
