    Not being a UN member doesnt protect you from investigations into charges of crimes against humanity.

    No, but Palestine kinda is. At least in the eyes of 70% of the countries in the UN. Hamas doesn't exist, it's technically a political party, though it is a terrorist group... well, a resistance group if you're a palestinian supporter.

    The attack came as diplomats from the United States and United Nations visited Israel in hopes of negotiating a ceasefire. UN Secretary General Ban Ki-moon said Israel's efforts to stop Hamas rocket fire were entirely justified, adding that no country would accept a similar situation.

    "We condemn strongly the rocket attacks, and these must stop immediately," Ban said during a news conference with Israeli Prime Minister Benjamin Netanyahu.

    But no investigations against Hamas crimes.

    As I said before.

    Everything in your life is a reflection of a choice you have made. If you want a different result, don't blame someone else, or expect others to make a change, you should stop complaining and make a different choice. Remember, the circumstances of your birth don't determine the outcome of your life.

    You said they look the other way, when as a point of fact they are looking directly at Hamas's use of rockets that they cannot control and condemning it. So don't accuse the UN of looking the other way.

    I think this is good for peace in that area. If both parties want to have an international court that is.

    As I understand it, and I admit I have not researched it much, but if you are not a country and don't have an actual legal military, kinda hard to be guilty of warcrimes. The article does make clear that the UN is aware however of potential(and I would say really likely at the least) criminal activity of their part. Whether the UN investigates it, I would think they would though the article is unclear(which may be the fault of the article or the UN).

    Not sure why a resistance group cannot be considered a terrorist group too. Hamas is clearly the latter, at least elements of it(don't read into that...I am not an expert so trying not to overstate).

    The Dutch just opend a case on the shooting down of MH 17 at the court for human rights.

    That Russian construction "Donezk peoples popular republic" is not an UN member state and neither does anyone recognise it as one.
