Actually, Israel does indeed have laws against torture. When people talk about Geneva Convention violations, they're specifically talking about the Shin Bets, and only the Shin Bets right to commit acts against the Geneva Convention in situations of grave danger. By Geneva Convention violations, we are not talking about Viet Cong style torture, but rather sleep deprevation, etc. They must then file a formal report which is followed up by a military tribunal. Israel does NOT allow random torture, and while it believes that parts of the Geneva convention can be put aside in situations of need, it does still believe in accountability.
