Abbas_bashirMahmoud Abbas visited Sudan for talks with President Omar Bashir. Bashir is wanted for crimes against humanity in Darfur. AFP quotes Abbas:

“We are with Sudan,” said Abbas when asked about the Palestinian position about the international warrant for arrest issued against al-Bashir for war crimes in Darfur. Abbas added, “We are with the president. We support Sudanese unity and entirely agree with Sudan’s position.”

Why should Israel be expected to treat the International Criminal Court with any more respect than the Palestinians?
