The bombing of the Russian airliner reflects the long conflict between Islamic extremists and Egypt that has spread south to the coastal fantasy land.21:26 25.11.15 | 0 comments
ARE GC`s Retroactive? No. They apply from the moment they are ratified and to what the ratifier is doing at the time. At the time it was in control of territories of the non-state entity of Palestine. Common article 3 covers non-state entities. http://www.icrc.org/Web/Eng/siteeng0.nsf/html/genevaconventions Meanwhile. Israel's obligation to International Law applied. As it did not legally annex any territories acquired by war by 1949, it was considered the occupier. See the British recognition of Israel. http://wp.me/pDB7k-ki#defacto-dejure The GCs: Are based on the Laws of War. The majority of League of Nations States were party to the Laws of War prior to the UN, making them universally applicable, i.e., obligatory for all UN Member states, without exception. The GC's are obligatory of all UN Member states now that a majority have ratified. This is how International law is formed. Your rubbish on UNRWA is just that, rubbish.
