Well, for one thing we're not currently in a state of ceasefire with Israel. (For some reason, a lot of people tend to forget that we were in a state of ceasefire with Iraq, one which clearly stipulated that we had the right to renew hostilities at any time if Saddam failed to keep his promises. I know of no such situation existing between the US and Israel. In light of that, suggesting that we ought to behave the same in both situations--which were/are very different--seems inappropriate to me.

But for my reference, which specific UN resolutions do you believe Israel to be in violation of?
http://www.un.org/documents/

I've not done much research on this, but I see only four security council resolutions relating to Israel in the past few years; 1559, 1583, 1648, and 1701. Which of these is Israel in violation of, and what action or inaction constitutes a violation in your eyes? What other resolutions am I unaware of (there may well be many), and please answer the same questions for those.

Thanks in advance for helping me to better understand your position.

In "Deliberate Deceptions: Facing the Facts About US-Israeli Relationship" (Lawrence Hill Books, 1995) author/former Congressman Paul Findley makes the point that Israel, with the collusion of the power elite on our continent, has been successful over the decades in keeping the United Nations on the sidelines in efforts to find a solution to the Middle East problem and to create real peace:

thank you for the UN site link, however it lacks a search feature...

904 (1994) Strongly condemns the massacre in Hebron committed against Palestinian worshippers in Al-Ibrahimi Mosque, on 25 February 1994, during the holy month of Ramadan, and its aftermath which took the lives of more than 50 Palestinian civilians and injured several hundred others. Calls upon Israel, the occupying Power, to continue to take and implement measures, including, inter alia, confiscation of arms, with the aim of preventing illegal acts of violence by Israeli settlers. Calls for measures to be taken to guarantee the safety and protection of the Palestinian civilians throughout the occupied territory, including, inter alia, a temporary international or foreign presence, which was provided for in the Declaration of Principles, within the context of the ongoing peace process.

1073 (1996) Expresses its deep concern about the tragic events in Jerusalem and the areas of Nablus, Ramallah, Bethlehem and the Gaza Strip, which resulted in a high number of deaths and injuries among the Palestinian civilians. Calls for the immediate cessation and reversal of all acts which have resulted in the aggravation of the situation and which have negative implications for the Middle East peace process. Calls for the safety and protection of Palestinian civilians to be ensured. Calls for the immediate resumption of negotiations within the Middle East peace process on its agreed basis and the timely implementation of the agreements reached. (The draft resolution was issued officially as a presidential text, which normally indicates unanimity prior to the vote.)

1322 (2000) Reaffirms that a just and lasting solution to the Arab and Israeli conflict must be based on its resolutions 242 (1967) of 22 November 1967 and 338 (1973) of 22 October 1973, through an active negotiating process. Deplores the provocation carried out at Al-Haram Al-Sharif in Jerusalem on 28 September 2000, and the subsequent violence there and at other Holy Places, as well as in other areas throughout the territories occupied by Israel since 1968, resulting in over 80 Palestinian deaths and many other casualties. Condemns acts of violence, especially the excessive use of force against Palestinians, resulting in injury and loss of human life. Calls upon Israel, the occupying Power, to abide scrupulously by its legal obligations and its responsibilities under the Fourth Geneva. Calls for the immediate cessation of violence, and for all necessary steps to be taken to ensure that violence ceases, that new provocative actions are avoided, and that the situation returns to normality. Stresses the importance of establishing a mechanism for a speedy and objective inquiry into the tragic events of the last few days with the aim of preventing their repetition.

1402 (2002) tells israel to withdraw from palestinian cities

1403 (2002) tells israel to go through with 1402 with out delay

international laws the apartheid wall violates:


Hague Regulations 1907 Section III Article 46:

• Section II Article 23(g): “[it is especially forbidden] to destroy or seize the enemy’s property, unless such destruction or seizure be imperatively demanded by the necessities of war…”

• Section III Article 46: “Family honour and rights, the lives of persons, and private property, as well as religious convictions and practice must be respected. Private property cannot be confiscated.”

• Section III Article 50: “No general penalty, pecuniary or otherwise, shall be inflicted upon the population on account of the acts of individuals for which they cannot be regarded as jointly or severally responsible.”

• Section III Article 52: “Requisitions in kind and services shall not be demanded from municipalities or inhabitants except for the needs of the army of occupation.”

• Section III Article 55: “The occupying State shall be regarded only as administrator and usufructuary of public buildings, real estate, forests, and agricultural estates belonging to the hostile State, and situated in the occupied country. It must safeguard the capital of these properties, and administer them in accordance with the rules of usufruct.” (Namely, the occupier is forbidden from destruction or alteration of the property in question)

FOURTH GENEVA CONVENTION

• Article 52: [prohibits] “All measures aimed at creating unemployment or at restricting the opportunities offered to workers in an occupied territory”

• Article 53: “Any destruction by the Occupying Power of real or personal property belonging individually or collectively to private persons, or to the State, or to other public authorities, or to social or cooperative organizations, is prohibited, except where such destruction is deemed absolutely necessary by military operations.”

Legal Issues Regarding the Applicability of the Occupied Territories: Israel’s Stance

• As a signatory, Israel recognizes the Hague Regulations as customary international law, and enforceable in Israeli courts.

• Israel claims exemption from the Regulations as they (Regulations) have not been domestically ratified by the Knesset.

• Israel claims the principles of the Fourth Geneva convention are not applicable on the supposed grounds that no “legitimate ousted sovereign” existed. (The West Bank and Gaza Strip were never internationally recognized as belonging to Jordan and Syria)

• Although a signatory of the 1966 International Covenant on Political and Civil Rights (ICCPR) and 1966 International Covenant on Economic Social and Cultural Rights (ICESCR), which outline universally accepted notions of fundamental human rights, Israel argues that there is no application in the Occupied Territories, on the consideration that Palestinians are considered aliens and not within national borders.

Legal Issues Regarding the Applicability of the Occupied Territories: International Stance>

• The Hague Regulations and Fourth Geneva Convention prohibit collective punishment, and acts of aggression against the resident population. Additionally, Occupying Force is obligated to ensure the safety and dignity of the resident population is sustained while protecting their private property.

• The principles set forth are accepted as customary international law. Therefore, Israel is obliged to act in accordance with the procedures set forth, regardless of domestic ratification. Only in the case of a treaty based law would Israel’s stance be applicable.

• As reported by the International Committee of the Red Cross, the sovereignty of parties in a conflict is not the underlying concern of the Geneva Convention. Rather, it applies “to all cases in which territory is occupied in the course of an armed conflict, irrespective of the status of that territory.”

• Israel has employed a double standard with regards to the Hague Regulations. Employing defective arguments (outlined above), Israel has claimed exemption from the Regulations in the interest of continuing construction of the Apartheid Wall. Subsequently, those same provisions are used to justify the seizure of private property (upon which the wall is being constructed) in times of war

• The UN Security Council Resolution 681 (1990), UN General Assembly Resolution 56/60 (2001), and the High Contracting Parties to the Geneva Conventions (2001) have confirmed that the Fourth Geneva Convention is applicable to the Occupied Territories and thus made Israel’s compliance mandatory.

• The ICCPR holds that both nationals and aliens are subject to the conditions of human rights observation. Furthermore, it applies to “all individuals” within a states “territory and subject to its jurisdiction”

• The UN Human Rights Committee and the UN Committee on Economic, Social and Cultural Rights have disregarded sovereignty issues as a prerequisite for compliance with the ICCPR and ICESPR.

Which of the resolutions you cited are you arguing that Israel has violated, and which of those specific violations do you feel warrants military action by the US against Israel. Lastly, what should be the goal of said action?

1073 was written in 1996, before recent events creating a Palestinian territory under Palestinian rule. In this new situation, it would seem to be the job of the Palestinian authority to ensure the safety and security of its own people. That written, what is Israel doing or not doing that you see as a failure to ensure the safety and protection of Palestinian civilians?

1402 calls for the withdrawal of Israeli TROOPS from Palestinian cities. Which Palestinian cities still have Israeli troops in them?

1322 calls upon Israel to behave in a certain manner as "the occupying Power." Given that the Palestinians now preside over their own autonomous territory, isn't this resolution moot? (It also calls for an immediate cessation of violence. I could be wrong, but didn't that happen?)

(It does not appear to me that Israel is currently in violation of any of these, so I certainly wouldn't think we ought to act as if they were.)

Raibeart - Got a citation for one of those stories that is from a source I can trust. No offense, but the sources you've cited are too close to the conflict and have reason to mislead. If these things are happening, why doesn't a Google news search (http://news.google.com/news?so.....eli+forces) bring up links to the story on CNN, FoxNews, ABC, CBS, NBC, NY Times, etc??? The fact that all of the links I find to these stories are from the Palestine News Network, International Middle East Media Center, Al Jazeera, and the like, leads me to suspect that this isn't news at all; it's propaganda.

Of course, that could be a flaw in my search, so perhaps you can point me to an article about this at a reputable source? Thanks.
