"I have read a lot of comments about the illegality of settlements quoting International Laws and the Geneva Convention. I am no expert on the International Law but I have looked up the Geneva Convention - it deals with the humane treatment of civilians under occupation and prisoners of war but does not mention any settlements. Can any one with real knowledge shed some ligh on this please ?" Good morning, Ed. The relevant passage is tucked away in the Fourth Genena Convention, Article 49. "The Occupying Power shall not deport or transfer parts of its own civilian population into the territory it occupies" Zionists hate this because its so unequivocal and easy to understand.
