E: "It is based on un charter article 2 right? That existed in 45 and was applicable to 48 war" Israel was not a member state of the UN in 1948, Eli, so the UN Charter did not apply to her. Egypt, Syria and Jordan were, and they were insisting that this NON MEMBER was engaged in a war of aggression against the Arabs of Palestine, and that SOMEBODY had to protect those Palestinians against that naked aggression. The right to a collective defense against aggression is enshrined in int'l law, Eli. E: "unlike gciv and common artle 3 whIch are only enactEd august 12 1949" NOBODY recognizes Israel's claim to sovereignty over ANY part of Jerusalem, Eli, even now. Moreover, EVERYBODY insists that GCIV applies to East Jerusalem, but (and this is the important part) **only** to East Jerusalem, not to any other part of Jerusalem. Hint: East Jerusalem was seized by the IDF only in 1967, which is well after the date that Israel signed the Geneva Conventions.
