Hi Saladain, yes it passed, I was recording and posting the results of the votes for people to see who supported it and who did not:)

It's passed the first hurdle, but now I think, judging on what the US member said at the UN, see my post on this. That Israel will at some point ultimately decide to do its own investigation, so that it:
1. retains control of the investigation

2. Can hide the vast majority of criminals from the law

3. give a hand slap to one or two low ranking IDF soldiers, so that Israel can the US can then say Israel cooperated

4. this will be the end of the story. hate to say that but it's what I belive will take place.

Israel and the US will not allow this to reach the ICC, having Israel do its "own "investigation solves the problem, in their eyes anyway.

I did write about this on one of the updates today

I would be interested to see your opinion about that!
if you have time of course,no pressure.

Saladin said...

Yes you are right Irish.
I am glad that it has passed,but to expect something huge to happen is very naive!
nothing will come out of this!
as i said,there is no justice in this world!
