The international criminal court is considering whether the Palestinian  
Authority is "enough like a state" for it to bring a case alleging that Israeli  
troops committed _war crimes_ (http://www.guardian.co.uk/world/war-crimes)  in 
the recent assault on _Gaza_ (http://www.guardian.co.uk/world/gaza) .

commanders in the dock at The Hague over the campaign, which claimed more 
than  1,300 lives, and set an important precedent for the court over what cases 
it can  hear.
