DYK... The 1965 charter of the PLO (the "sole legitimate representative of the Palestinian people") declared that the Palestinian people "does not exercise any territorial sovereignty over the West Bank in the Hashemite Kingdom of Jordan, on the Gaza Strip or in the Himmah Area”.
In 1965, before Israel liberated Judea & Samaria (in 1967), the "Palestinians" had no territorial claim to the areas they now assert are "occupied Palestinian territories,"... their only goal was to destroy 🇮🇱!
While ignoring both history & law, #FatouBensouda & the @IntlCrimCourt both decided that they know better than the Palestinians & decided to invent the "historical" "State of PaLIEstine" specifically in the areas the Palestinians denounced any claim to.

Isn't that ironic?

Next time anyone claims Jews are “settlers” in Judea & Samaria, tell them the story of Atara Abramson.

Murdered by Jordanian soldiers, in May 1948, Atara lived in Kfar Etzion, a Jewish agricultural village 20 km south of Jerusalem established on land bought by Jews in 1934.
Born in Poland in 1926, Atara was herded from her home by the Nazis from place to place, ending WWII in the Auschwitz-Birkenau death camp.

Atara’s entire family was murdered by the Germans & their willing helpers.

She was the LAST SURVIVING member of her family.
After her first attempt, in 1946, to immigrate to Israel was foiled by the British, in complete breach of the Mandate for Palestine, she eventually realized her dream in February 1947, going to live in Kfar (village) Etzion , in the Etzion block.

Having invented the [non-existent] "State of Palestine" & its fictitious borders, the @IntlCrimCourt Prosecutor #FatouBensouda now announces the opening of an official investigation "respecting the Situation in Palestine" thereby locking her successor @KarimKhanQC into her fable.
This is the same @IntlCrimCourt prosecutor who colluded with the terrorists she is meant to be investigating.

This is the same prosecutor who covered up the fact that the PA intentionally submitted a falsified to the @IntlCrimCourt

What an outrage. #FatouBensouda is a world-renowned champion of human rights and human rights law. She was listed among the TIME 100 most influential people in the world and among the top 100 most influential people in all of Africa by two major African publications and the BBC.
This isn't an error--this is a direct attack by the Trump administration. There is no mistaking who #FatouBensouda is nor what her global role is--she was a legal advisor and trial attorney for the Tribunal for the Rwandan genocide. She is a towering figure and this is obscene.
This story about Trump's authoritarian action against #FatouBensouda got zero traction, yet I've seen five pieces already this morning about Speaker Pelosi's haircut. We choose our outrages. The ban on #FatouBensouda should be in the top five.
