    Before begining let's move away from a moral perspective to a legal perspective. Are Geneva Conventions, notably GCIV and Common Article 3 retroactive? NO When were they signed? August 12 1949 When Was the Final Armstice for Israel War of Independence signed? July 20 1949. So if the above is true, IS GC4 and Common Article 3 applicable to events of the 1948-9 war of independence? NO Agreed, or please provide facts for refutation Now the kicker, WHAT LEGAL FOUNDATIONS EXIST FOR UNRWA? NONE, IT CREATED THE FOUNDATIONS, THE RIGHTS PROVIDED UNDER UNRWA DO NOT REPEAT FOR ANY OTHER PERSONS ON EARTH. Furthermore UNRWA began under UN General Assembly Resolution 302 (IV), of 8 December 1949. AFTER THE ALLEGED EVENTS and at a time when those events, where even it they did happen were not ILLEGAL, but if happened like Tarik will state, are surely immoral, hence my opening point. Your refutation, and I am eager to read it. alwayslearning@live.ca
