It starts: 'Palestinians' heading for ICC?

Are the 'Palestinians' heading for the International Criminal Court? It sure sounds like it.
Nabil Sha’at, a senior member of the Palestinian Authority, said on Tuesday that Palestinians would file a complaint at the ICC if the Israeli regime sticks to its recent plan to build thousands more settler units in East al-Quds and the West Bank, including in the controversial E1 area.
“By continuing these war crimes of settlement activities on our lands and stealing our money, Israel is pushing and forcing us to go to the ICC,” Sha’at said. 

...

“We have to move to concrete steps so Israel knows it has something to lose and will be held accountable, in accordance with international law,” Ashrawi said.
Many countries, including some of Tel Aviv’s allies, have criticized the settlement expansion plan.
That ought to get them their 'state.' What could go wrong?

Israeli leaders seem affected by what can be called at best suicidal optimism.
If Israel doesn't respond by declaring SOVEREIGNTY over the disputed territories, since all bilateral agreements have been rendered null and void by the Palestinian unilateral initiative at the U.N. - which Israel should OPENLY declare , SOON Israel will lose some BINDING UNSC VOTE brought by Palestinian demands.
If the UNSC decides that Judea and Samaria are Palestinian territories - something absolutely possible under the current US Administration, Israel is will face existential threats the likes of which She has not yet seen.
