Just to perfection, generous (to Israel) to a fault. Peace. Try it, you'll like it. Israel built the "legal" settlements in the West Bank against the advice of the chief counsel of Israel`s own Foreign Ministry in 1967. No settlements had been built when his counsel was sought. He advised that settlement building would be illegal because it would violate the Fourth Geneva Convention, which Israel had signed. This secret document was brought to light by Israeli historian Gershom Gorenberg after the archives were opened up. Israel is obligated to comply with international law, and the chief counsel`s opinion matches that of almost all international legal opinion on this issue, including that of the International Court of Justice. The Fourth Geneva Convention rules in Israel and Palestine, as in all the world. http://en.wikipedia.org/wiki/Fourth_Geneva_Convention http://www.pchrgaza.org/Intifada/Settlements.conv.htm "The Occupying Power shall not deport or transfer parts of its own civilian population into the territory it occupies."
