Palestinian judge for the International Criminal Court stands in front of the PA map of “Palestine” which erases Israel's existence

Headline: “Fouad Baker: The situation after the International Criminal Court’s decision is not like before it and the legal battle has actively begun


“[Official PA daily] Al-Hayat Al-Jadida spoke with Fouad Baker, the Palestinian judge at the International Criminal Court (ICC) for conflict resolution and head of the Democratic Front [for the Liberation of Palestine’s] Legal Department, who said… regarding Israel not being part of the Rome Convention that everyone who commits any kind of criminal involvement in the geographical area of Palestine, which is a member state, needs to stand trial. However, the ICC has not intervened or applied its authority over the 1948 territories (i.e., Israel), regardless of the citizenship of the perpetrator of the crime, particularly because the local justice system is incapable or unwilling to prosecute Israelis, which leads to an escape from justice if they are not prosecuted by the ICC.”


The article includes an image of Judge Fouad Baker standing in front of the PA map of “Palestine” that presents all of Israel together with the PA areas as “Palestine.” Overlaid on the map are scales representing the scales of justice.
