The prosecutor's decision in the International Criminal Court in The Hague on the situation in the West Bank and Gaza Strip is one of the most significant events in the Israeli-Palestinian conflict since the disengagement plan in 2005. The threat, always considered the Palestinian "nuclear option", was launched today (Wednesday). Stop him.



The Hague tribunal's investigation is expected to dramatically affect the entire relationship between Israel and the Palestinian Authority not only in the coming months but probably also in the coming years.

The investigation will add additional tension to the already charged relationship and any initiative to advance a political process or confidence-building measures will be very difficult to move forward.



Senior Israeli officials claim that there are quite a few elements within the political-security system who claim that in light of the fact that the Palestinian Authority initiated the lawsuit against Israel in the Hague tribunal and continues to "refuel" it every few months, Israel has no reason to help the Palestinian Authority.

The election campaign may even push Prime Minister Benjamin Netanyahu and his partners in the transitional government to impose sanctions on the PA.

In this case, Israel's legal situation is good.

The prosecutor's decision will oblige the Biden administration to deal with the Israeli-Palestinian issue much more than the new president intended or wanted.

As reported in Walla!

Last week the issue was raised in US President Joe Biden's first phone call with Netanyahu asking him not to lift sanctions on the tribunal's prosecutor.

A significant crisis between the parties will force Biden to mediate between the parties reluctantly.



Biden's modest plans to renew relations with the Palestinian Authority could also be jeopardized as a result of the prosecutor's decision.

For example, one of the conditions in the American law for the opening of PLO offices in Washington is the cessation of Palestinian support for an investigation against Israel. .

Is expected to dramatically affect the entire relationship between Jerusalem and Ramallah.

Unlike the political and political world that moves at the fast pace of a speedboat, the investigation itself moves at the pace of a glacier.

Plaintiff's dramatic announcement is another step in a lengthy legal process.

The headlines blown up on international arrest warrants are a bit hysterical and ahead of their time.

Since the tribunal was established 20 years ago, a total of 60 arrest warrants have been issued for suspects.

Israeli officials believe that in the coming months there is no immediate danger of issuing arrest warrants against Israeli officials.



The next steps in the process will take time.

Prosecutor Pato Bensuda is expected to send a letter to Israel and the Palestinians detailing the specific events she wants to investigate.

The parties will then have one month to respond to the letter and inform the plaintiff whether they intend to investigate for themselves the cases in which war crimes are suspected.

If Israel asks to hold its own investigation, this will freeze the investigation of the court in The Hague.

Netanyahu is not the only culprit in the political situation.

The prosecutor examined three key cases - the war in Gaza in 2014, the shooting at protesters on the fence in Gaza in 2018 and construction in settlements in the West Bank.

In both cases, the first of Israel's legal situation is not bad because of the criminal investigations conducted by Military Police officers and soldiers, even if most of them ended without indictments. The plaintiff may indeed decide to close these cases in light of the investigations already carried out in Israel.



In the third case of the settlements in Israel Not only has Israel never investigated the issue, but it has been a policy of Israeli governments for 50 years. In addition, in contrast to IDF operations in Gaza and the defense of the soldiers for whom there is a very broad political consensus in Israel, the settlements are in deep political controversy.

In addition, there is a broad consensus in the world that the settlements are illegal.

Israel is in trouble because of its policies.

Prime Minister Netanyahu, who has been in power for the past 12 years, is not the only culprit in the serious political and legal situation to which Israel has deteriorated following the prosecutor's decision in The Hague, but he has made a significant contribution to this.

On the one hand, the Palestinians started since 2009 a change in strategy that has a campaign manager legal international against Israel alongside the negotiations. On the other hand, the overall policy of Netanyahu, which has disdained the Palestinian Authority and weakened it and nurtured the settlements pushed the Palestinians even choose the option Hague.



Netanyahu has contributed very The fact that PA Chairman Abu Mazen was convinced at a very early stage that he was not a partner.

We might have reached this day anyway, but it is certainly possible that Netanyahu's other policy towards the Palestinians would have prevented this severe escalation.
