Palestinians now have access to International Criminal Court. But, I supposes, it goes both ways. Palestinians authority, and their citizens are supposed to become subject to ICC investigations and prosecutions, as well.
Palestinian authority in West Bank should be liable for any act of terrorism against Israel Citizens. With their attitudes that should quickly fill ICC detention centers with hundreds of Palestinians, if there is any justice around.  ICC should have enough Palestinians to work on for next couple of hundreds years.
Where does it put Hamas. In theory, Gaza Strip is still under Palestinian Authority. If it achieved international recognition, that means two things. First, Hamas is violating international laws by preventing PA from governing the Strip. Second PA is liable to keep peace and order at the Strip as well, and take some kind of action against those who violate it. If they fail to do that, they are complacent with criminals, and therefore subject of criminal prosecution, as well. If someone is firing missiles at Israel from Gaza Strip, PA is supposed to perform some legal action, otherwise it is like they fired missiles themselves.

Legally correct, I'm sure, but irrelevant. The UN and ICC are in the thrall of the International Left, which means they can believe 17 impossible things before breakfast. They will undoubtedly wring their hands over any Palestinian crimes, while insisting "it's complicated," then jump on any Israeli breeches like white on rice. That's how the game is played these days. Wholly cynical and hypocritical.
