  • ICC is dead to us’ US to use ‘any means’ to shield citizens & allies from war crime probes

She also said the closure decision was consistent with us concerns about Palestinian attempts to prompt an investigation of Israel by the International Criminal Court.

The United States has accused Palestinian leaders of rejecting outright a still unseen USA peace plan, while in turn the Trump administration is viewed by the Palestinians as being biased in favour of Israel.

The United States on Monday will adopt an aggressive posture against the International Criminal Court (ICC) in The Hague, threatening sanctions against its judges if they proceed with an investigation into alleged war crimes committed by Americans in Afghanistan.

The Palestinians accused the administration of dismantling decades of US engagement with them.

The move also comes as the US administration prepares to unveil a controversial Middle East peace plan known as the "Deal of the Century".

Palestinian Foreign Minister Riyad al-Maliki described on Tuesday President Donald Trump's decision to halt USA funding for the United Nations Palestinian refugee agency UNRWA as an attack on worldwide law.

Mac Miller's home reportedly cleaned before cops could investigate

Trump also recognized Jerusalem as Israel's capital and moved the U.S. Embassy there, from Tel Aviv.

"With the closing of the PLO office in Washington, the American administration is not changing the rules of the game, but simply restoring them after years of neglect", Oren said.

Internationally-brokered peace talks between Israel and the Palestinians have stalled since 2014 and Israeli settlements in the occupied territories have steadily expanded.

Wisma Putra said Malaysia further regarded the actions of the U.S. government as a humiliation to the Palestinians and their struggle for the right to self-determination.

Ashrawi said the Palestinian leadership was weighing its options, including ending security discussions with the U.S. Asked if the peace process was at its lowest point since Oslo, she went back further, to the time of Israel's birth: "This is the lowest point since 1948", she said.

"The U.S. threats against the ICC are a coup against the rules in the global system", he said.

Real Madrid captain Ramos: Enrique not hired to kick me out!
Luis Enrique didn't want to reveal his side, although he said he knows what it will be, but did praise captain Sergio Ramos . The strategy board game is said to have been one of the things the squad played during the World Cup.

Knesset Speaker Yuli Edelstein (Likud) said the PLO mission was only good at spreading hatred and incitement and made no effort to advance peace.

The Palestinian government said the ruling gave "occupation forces the authority to commit an global crime by forcibly displacing the 180 Palestinian citizens of Khan al-Ahmar".

The State Department announced this month that the United States is ending its decades of funding for the U.N. agency that helps Palestinian refugees.

The court has been hobbled by the refusal of the U.S., Russia, China and other major nations to join.

Erekat stressed that the Palestinians are committed to the peace process on the basis of the two-state solution, but will not accept the current US administration team to be the peace mediator.
