    The Geneva convention offers its protection to soldiers captured in war. People captured planning attacks on civilians are not soldiers but terrorists. One thing for all of those drama queens out there: Israel is not torturing all of those little 5 year old Palestinian children that people imagine are in Israeli jails. The "children" in Israeli Jails are not children but rather teenagers. Children the same age as those that fire at and attack Israeli soldiers in Palestinian-occupied Israel. These children are the age of those that launch attacks against schoolchildren in many recent American situations. I support torture of those who joined a terrorist group. When a person joins such a group they claim that the lives innocent civilians are worth the price of creating terror in a population. These people have lost their right to be protected as soldiers. When and if Palestinian groups renounce attacks against civilians then I will call for Geneva Convention treatment of those captured.
