On 1st April 2015, Palestine formally become the newest state party to the International Criminal Court (ICC) treaty. Palestinian Foreign Minister Raid Al-Malki, Speaking at a ceremony in The Hague to mark the occasion, said this will bring the world “a step closer to ending a long era of impunity and in justice”
But the practical result of Palestine’s move to join the court are less clear. And now the Trump administration ordered the closure of the Palestinian diplomatic mission in Washington on Monday and threatened sanctions against the international Criminal Court (ICC) if it pursues investigations against the U.S., Israel, or other allies.
Everyone has heard of the Israel-Palestine Conflict. Everyone knows it’s bad, that it’s been going on for a long time, and that there is a lot of hatred on both sides. The Israeli-Palestinian conflict has been a never-ending problem facing the two states. It began in the 19th century during the Ottoman or British Rule. This was between the Arabs living in Palestine and the Jews living in Israel. This conflict was known as the Arab-Israel conflict.
In this regard every country need to play a positive role .U.S. also needs to play a positive role because Palestinian people has also equal rights of freedom, freedom from war, freedom from terror, freedom from illiteracy. They also have a right to live with peace and get education.
There is a common saying that war is never good and peace is never bad. But if we look back at the history of the mankind, it will be cleared that there have been wars since prehistoric ages. Wars are not a solution to the problems instead they generate problems and create hatred among the nations. War can decide one issue but gives birth too many. Hiroshima and Nagasaki are the greatest horrible faces of the consequences of wars. Even after 60 years people are suffering from the miseries of war. Whatever be the cause of war, it always result in destruction of life and property at large.
So this problem will be solved politically because war always bring Destruction.
