Abu Bluff threatens Israel with International Criminal Court, 'different' actions

'Moderate' 'Palestinian' President Mahmoud Abbas Abu Mazen is in Turkey, where he addressed Israel's plans to build 3,000 housing units in 'east' Jerusalem, Judea and Samaria as well as the planning for E-1 between Jerusalem and Maaleh Adumim. Abu Mazen is threatening to take Israel to the International Criminal Court over the 3,000 units, and he's threatening 'different' actions - about which he did not elaborate - in connection with E-1, which he regards as an 'act of aggression' and a 'red line.'

Let's go to the videotape.

I'm surprised that Abu Mazen and Abdullah Gul didn't start out with Heil Hitler.... But it was so nice (not!) to see the little Nazi all the way over on the left of the Turkish cabinet....

Unfortunately, the video did not give us any of Abu Bluff's threats, but JPost did. JPost's headline, which says that Abu Mazen threatened to take Israel to the International Criminal Court over E-1, appears to be wrong based on the text in the article:
The Palestinian Authority may file charges against Israel with the UN's International Criminal Court [ICC] over the Israeli government's decision to build 3,000 housing units in Jerusalem and the West Bank, PA President Mahmoud Abbas was quoted Tuesday as saying.
"We are not very inclined to resort to this path, but if Israel insists on its unacceptable plan, then we will use other methods," Abbas said during a joint press conference with Turkish President Abdullah Gul in Ankara.
"If Israel continues in this way, we will respond with all means - of course peaceful ones - including the possibility of going to this court." Abbas said that if Israel chooses peace, it will find the Palestinians fully prepared. "But if Israel chooses settlements, especially in E1, then we will act differently," he said with our elaborating.
Abbas denounced the Israeli plan as an "act of aggression and a red line."
It sounds like he's threatening to go to the ICC over the 3,000 units, and to take 'different' actions over E-1.

What could go wrong?

I'm not a lawyer but I sure don't see hoe any court can rule on a decision when it has not resulted in any action.

Don't you have to be able to actually point to a specific effect? Moreover is the ICC intended to settle real estate disputes? If so then I think we should bury them under every piddling easement and covenant and eminent domain lawsuit under the sun. From every country. I would LOVE to see Los Angeles county have to knuckle under to the ICC over a water use dispute or a challenge to one of the Royal Spanish Land Grants that still crop up after 500 years. I would immediately sue in the name of the Native Americans for complete and total rights and ownership of Manhattan. I would love to sue the Catholic Church over its illegal global land holdings, in the ICC.
