    This order opens a can of worms that the Israelis WILL NOT WANT OPENED. Prior to disengagement the IHCJ had to rule wether it was "legal" for the IDF to forcibly transfer a Palestinian from the West Bank to Gaza. Their ruling: it was legal precisely because both the WB and Gaza were part of one occupied territory and, therefore, no violation of Article 49 of GCIV took place. If the IDF still wants to argue that it is "legal" for them to forcibly transfer a Palestinian from the West Bank to Gaza then the IHCJ will have no choice: it either has to rule that a) Gaza is **still** occupied territory (thereby making that transfer "legal") or it has to rule that b) Gaza is **no longer** occupied territory (at which point this order becomes a grave violation of GCIV). It can't have it both ways, and neither can Israel. This was a baaaad idea that was dreamed up without enough thought, and it should be rescinded immediately.
