Ramallah, West Bank - A senior Palestinian official says the West Bank government will try to bring Israel up on charges through the U.N. if American attempts to restart peace talks fail.

Chief Palestinian negotiator Saeb Erekat told diplomats Tuesday that Palestinians plan on turning to U.N. agencies to charge Israel with war crimes in international courts if talks don’t resume.

The remarks come before U.S. Secretary of State John Kerry returns to the region next week for consultations.

Talks collapsed over four years ago over the issue of construction of Jewish housing in areas Palestinians demand for a future state. Palestinians say they will not talk until construction in settlements is stopped.

Israel says settlements, along with other core issues, should be resolved in peace talks without preconditions.

Do the Palestinians really want to talk about war crimes?

The U.N. is a worthless organization. Look how much power they have with Syria.

Let them have their own state, give them a piece of the "New Democratic Egypt" run by The Brothers. Within time, no matter what they call themselves, they will eventually try to kill "The Brotherhood" for using deadly gas on their own people! And they keep chasing their own tails....
