    "Article 49 of the Fourth Geneva Convention applies to territory seized from sovereign states and not to territory reclaimed from rebel provinces." - Nope. For it to be a "rebel province" Israel would need to prove prior sovereignty. Care to show me exactly *when* Israel had sovereignty - or even control - of that land prior to seizing it by war in 1967? "In order to determine what is occupied and what isn`t and what is legal and what isn`t requires one to determine where the border is" Nope. The UN and the Red Cross (they administer the GC) determine wether the land is occupied. Read this: http://www.icrc.org/Web/eng/siteeng0.nsf/iwpList325/D86C9E662022D64E41256C6800366D55 from the Red Cross, Geneva, 5 December 2001 In Annexe 1 the "High Contracting Parties" that make up the Red Cross say the land is occupied. In Annexe 2 the International Committee of the Red Cross agreed with it's member parties. The UN? Too many Resolutions to list, Jeff. Waay too many.
