Palestinians Declare Trump Their Enemy, Threaten Explosion of Violence

US National Security Adviser John Bolton speaks at a press conference in Jerusalem

The national security adviser is also planning to threaten the International Criminal Court in the same prepared remarks, saying the US will impose sanctions against the organization if it investigates the USA and Israel, the Journal reported.

In a video, Erekat also said "We are determined to pursue our fight in the Security Council, General Assembly, Human Rights Council and the International Court of Justice".

The journal also reported that the national security adviser formulates to intimidate the International Criminal Court in similar assembled comments vociferating that U.S. will levy restrictions against the concern if it probes the USA and Israel.

He accused US officials of giving the Israeli government to press ahead with the demolition of Al-Kahn Al-Ahmar community in order to expand settlement projects east of Jerusalem.

Amnesty International immediately rebuked the U.S. position on the issue, saying its rejection of the ICC's legitimacy "is an attack on millions of victims and survivors who have experienced the most serious crimes under international law and undermines decades of groundbreaking work by the international community to advance justice".

"Israel supports the American actions that are meant to clarify to the Palestinians that their refusal to negotiate and attempts to attack Israel in global forums will not promote peace", he said in a statement at the end of Jewish New Year holiday.

Apple's New Lineup: iPhone XS, XS Max and (Slightly) Cheaper XR
This could be the iPhone that finally persuades the hundreds of millions of people holding on to old iPhones to upgrade. It's the ideal tool for taking bigger selfies, for pawing at bigger Instagram pictures, for streaming even more Netflix.

Worldwide powers say its demolition could enable Israeli settlement expansion that would eventually cut the West Bank in two, further threatening the prospects of an independent Palestinian state.

"We will do the same for any company or state that assists an ICC investigation of Americans".

Trump's decision has left UNRWA trying to cover a $200 million shortfall from Gulf and European donors, and has further strained tensions between Washington and the Palestinian leadership.

"We lost the USA administration but we gained our national rights", Zomlot said.

"If the court comes after us, Israel or other U.S. allies, we will not sit quietly", Bolton said. Al-Bashir remains at large, as does Ugandan warlord Joseph Kony, who was among the first rebels charged by the court in 2005.

Trump during the 2016 presidential campaign promised to move the U.S. Embassy from Tel Aviv to contested Jerusalem. Others have quit: Burundi and the Philippines, whose departure, announced earlier this year, takes effect next March. For decades, even amid close U.S.

World stocks mostly fall on possible US-China tariffs
But 2018 Chinese imports through July were up almost 9 per cent over the same period of 2017, according to US Census Bureau data. If Trump follows through his threats, it would mean virtually all of China's exports to the US would be subject to higher duties.

He added that "the current USA administration's policies starting with the transfer of its embassy to Jerusalem last May unveiled its complete prejudice to the Israeli agenda".

The United States did not ratify the Rome treaty that established the International Criminal Court in 2002, with then-President George W. Bush opposed to the court.

Palestine has been officially accepted as a member of the ICC in April 2015. The administration was largely successful in its effort, getting more than 100 countries to sign the agreements.

In Bush's second term, the US attitude toward the ICC shifted slightly as the world looked on in horror at genocide being committed in Sudan's western Darfur region. We will provide no assistance to the ICC.

He said the ICC could formally open the investigation "any day now".

"The ICC is an unprecedented effort to vest power in a supranational body without the consent of either nation-states or the individuals over which it purports to exercise jurisdiction", Bolton said. China, Russia and the United States have not.

Former Trump campaign aide sentenced - and his lawyer blames Trump
He did not elaborate on the $28 million price tag he cited, though it appeared to be about the cost of Mueller's investigation. Papadopoulos soon made contact with a mysterious Maltese academic, identified as Joseph Mifsud. "I don't know Papadopoulos".
