    Look up who is International Body with responsibility for the Geneva Conventions. It ain't Israel. Look, Cipora (and Jeff), this is really very simple: your argument means that you are insisting the the *players* get to tell the *umpires* just when and where the rules apply. Not so, otherwise *every* belligerent country would be able to drive a Merkava tank thru THAT loophole; just go WHAM! BANG! on someone, seize the land, and then turn around and say "GC? No, the GC doesn't apply here. I insist that it doesn't" Well, no, it's not up to the belligerent to decide. It came make a case, yes, but it has to abide by the umpires ruling. That is what they do when they become signatories. You'll find the *umpires* decisions here: http://www.icrc.org/Web/eng/siteeng0.nsf/iwpList325/D86C9E662022D64E41256C6800366D55 and here: http://www.icj-cij.org/icjwww/ipresscom/ipress2004/ipresscom2004-28_mwp_20040709.htm and in UN SC and GA resolutions too numerous to mention.
