PA Breaches of the Oslo Accords

PA shows contempt for US as it takes credit for ICC decision

The International Criminal Court’s decision…is an achievement for the Palestinian leadership, for the PLO, and for the PA

The Palestinian Authority (PA) is celebrating the decision by the International Criminal Court's chief prosecutor to seek arrest warrants for Israeli Prime Minister Benjamin Netanyahu and Defense Minister Yoav Gallant. PA officials credit themselves, particularly President Mahmoud Abbas, for engineering this move. However, this success could come at a cost, as the PA's involvement in petitioning the ICC could make it ineligible for funding from the US Economic Support Fund under American law. Despite this potential consequence, the PA continues to express contempt for US wishes, as demonstrated by its actions at the ICC and in rhetoric denouncing the US. The ICC decision has faced bipartisan condemnation from American politicians, with threats of potential sanctions against the court. There are calls for a reconsideration of US funding for the PA in light of its actions.
