You misunderstand me.
Yes, Israel is an occupier. That is 100% fact. Yes, Israel violates international law in the way it treats the Palestinians. And yes, no amount of
negotiations will work.
What i meant is that if these ICC investigations eventually indict members on both, the Palestinian and Israeli sides, both states may eventually come
to a cooperative standpoint with each other. You know, weed out the corrupt and illegal elements and replace it with sane people. There is some
animosity on both sides right now. Once the current leadership of Israel is deposed (whether through indictment or elections), i think things will
start looking slightly better for their relationship with Palestine. Still, you are correct that nothing will get done so long as negotiations and
terms go through Israel and the USA.
I personally hope that these ICC investigations turn out fruitful, and that Palestine submits another UN resolution which would be accepted.
