    D: "Israel is immune to any sanctions aimed at helping its palestinian enemies, as Israel can retaliate 10 times harder against its enemies. Israel has the power to withhold water from all the palestinians." The IDF is the occupying power, Duncan, and the West Bank is under a belligerent occupation. Therefore the Palestinian civilian population are "protected persons" under int'l humanitarian law. Q: Who has the responsibility to "protect" those "persons"? A: The occupying power has that responsibility, and if it doesn't then it has committed a war crime. Israel *can* withhold water to the Palestinians, in the same way that the Germans *could* withhold water to the Jews of the Warsaw Ghetto. The end result for the Israelis commanders and politicians responsible for that act will be the same, Duncan. As in, sooner or later, they will swing from the end of a gibbet, just as the Germans did.
