'Palestinians' call Israel a 'rogue state,' demand UN look into 'settlements'

Now that he 'represents' (or at least did four years ago) a 'non-member observer state,' 'moderate' 'Palestinian' President Mahmoud Abbas Abu Mazen has sent a letter to UN Secretary General Ban Ki-Moon in which he refers to Israel as a 'rogue state' and calls on the United Nations to hold Israel accountable for 'war crimes.'
The Palestinians accused Israel in a letter to the United Nations of planning to commit further "war crimes" by expanding Jewish settlements after the Palestinians won de facto UN recognition of statehood, and warned that Jerusalem must be held accountable.
In the letter to UN Secretary-General Ban Ki-moon and the UN Security Council, the Palestinians said Israel was behaving "in a rogue, hostile and arrogant manner, contravening all principles and rules of international law and reacting with contempt to the will of the international community."
After the UN General Assembly upgraded the Palestinians' status at the world body on Thursday from "observer entity" to "non-member state," Israel said on Friday it would build 3,000 more settler homes in the West Bank and east Jerusalem - areas Palestinians want for a future state, along with Gaza.
Approximately 500,000 Israelis and 2.5 million Palestinians live in the West Bank and east Jerusalem.
"A clear message must be sent to Israel that all of its illegal policies must be ceased or that it will be held accountable and will have to bear the consequences if its violations and obstruction of peace efforts," Palestinian UN observer Riyad Mansour wrote in the letter dated Monday.
Meanwhile, hundreds of people are being killed in Syria daily, but that's just Muslims killing Muslims so who cares?

Where is the County Clerk title registry database? They're trying to present a folktale and what we need is lot by lot, parcel by parcel, year by year, elevation infographic'd... even if it is the way Paula Stern described it... Ottoman to English to Jordanian to Israeli national forest, with no (or whatever) interim owners of lots... I wonder if Danny Ayalon would work on this if he has time? I just can't stress enough that people in the U.S. hear something like this, and then there is a thud of silence in response. Even if you say something, the media will block it out. So you need an internet-based resource with *only* parcel/lot specific info re Western Civ land ownership.
