Geneva loophole

Apologies to Groucho Marx
Jewish peaceniks get their answer.
Israeli embassy spokeswoman suggests that if only Israel had committed war crimes in Rafah a few weeks ago a settler and her daughters would still be alive. It's far more likely that they would still be alive if they hadn't been illegally settled in occupied territory. And a Dr A Landy demonstrates his expertise in finding loopholes in the Geneva Convention thus, "Article 27 ends as follows: "However, the parties to the conflict may take such measures of control and security in regard to protected persons (ie civilians) as may be necessary as a result of the war." Article 28 continues: "The presence of a protected person may not be used to render certain points or areas immune from military operations.""

Meanwhile the carnage in Rafah continues.
