    though it doesn't make me puke (I've got such a low opinion of both Israel and Palestine that almost nothing about I/P disgusts me anymore). As for the ICC, that's for individuals, not states, and it's really hard to go after someone in a state that isn't an ICC member (see Bashir, Omar). ICJ handles disputes between states, but it's better to think of it as an arbitration body than a court because it only has jurisdiction by mutual consent of the parties to the case.
