EU foreign policy chief Catherine Ashton asks Palestinians to please not go to the ICC, even if they get non-member state status.
"Ashton even asked us that if we get non-member state, not to go to the International Criminal Court," said Palestinian negotiator Nabil Shaath said on Monday.Hmm what's the word... pathetic? Yes. That's it.
This is about accountability.
And smashing the narrative of lies to pieces.
As many pieces as there are people who died, and had lives destroyed, and futures ruined, in Palestine.
Whether it changes the facts on the ground next week is not the point.
It changes the narrative.
It changes the definitions.
Sooner or later the facts on the ground follow.
This is the game the players have been playing.
They know the rules.
The facts on the ground follow the narrative.
That is why they made up all these narratives in the first place.
The narratives created and justified the facts on the ground.
Even though the narratives were lies.
It still worked.
That's the way the game works.
What happens when the narrative is the truth?
The facts on the ground will follow.
They always do.
Has this not been demonstrated with lies enough times?
It works with the truth also.
It works even better.
That's the point.
