No actually it does matter as the link you provided and keep cutting and pasting CLEARLY states that this article is dealing with 2 states.

Here ill spell it out for you:

Palestine holds non-member observer state status in the UN.

https://news.un.org/en/story/2024/04/1148351

Non-member observer states are expected to follow international customary law, which includes the Geneva convention. Palestine signed the Geneva convention

https://en.m.wikipedia.org/wiki/List_of_parties_to_the_Geneva_Conventions#:~:text=The%20four%201949%20Conventions%20have,169%20and%2079%20states%20respectively.

3.According to international humanitarian law (IHL), particularly the Geneva Conventions and Additional Protocol I (1977), military personnel are considered combatants and are legitimate targets during armed conflict. There was no armed conflict prior to 10/7 which makes the attack illegal according to the document Palestine signed

Resistance isn't classified PERIOD. Therefore whether or not their attack was justified is not up to a layman like yourself to decide. Its up to those who know international law

Rapes, the killing of civilians and taking hostages are all illegal under international law which by default classifies them as not legitimate acts of armed resistance

As an oppressed people they have a right to armed resistance

They don’t have the right to kill, rape, and take civilians as hostages. That is illegal

Its STILL NOT a state.

It DOESNT matter. It has been a non-member observer state of the United Nations General Assembly since November 2012. The General Assembly adopted a resolution to grant Palestine non-member observer state status. On November 29, 2012, the General Assembly passed resolution 67/19, granting Palestine non-member observer state status.

Because they hold the Observer State STATUS they are required to follow international customary law. Their status within the UN requires in, not their statehood

Well actually it DOES matter because people under oppression are allowed to resist under international law.

Resistance isn’t classified as Invasion and hostage taking which are all illegal under international law

Palestine is not a state.

It’s classified as a non-member Observer State by the UN, which is what I’m referring to.

As I've explained to you, that example doesn't apply here. 

So actually you’re wrong

No, the current status Palestine has within the UN requires it to follow customary international law, which it failed to do on 10/7

What I'm saying is the above example you quoted doesn't apply to Palestine because it is not a state. That's all. 

It doesn’t matter. All states and entities, including non-member observer states, are bound by customary international law, which includes fundamental principles such as the prohibition of aggression, respect for sovereignty, and the protection of human rights.

The United Nations General Assembly Resolution 3314 (XXIX) on the Definition of Aggression (1974) defines aggression as the use of armed force by a state against the sovereignty, territorial integrity, or political independence of another state. Specific acts of aggression include invasion, bombardment, blockade, and attacks on the armed forces of another state. Article 3(a) and (b) of this resolution explicitly include “invasion or attack by the armed forces of a State of the territory of another State” and “bombardment by the armed forces of a State against the territory of another State” as acts of aggression.

But not officially, As you know very well. Therefore, you cannot categorize it as a state

By the way, United Nations non-member observer states are generally expected to adhere to international law, much like full member states.

All states and entities, including non-member observer states, are bound by customary international law, which includes fundamental principles such as the prohibition of aggression, respect for sovereignty, and the protection of human rights.

The United Nations General Assembly Resolution 3314 (XXIX) on the Definition of Aggression (1974) defines aggression as the use of armed force by a state against the sovereignty, territorial integrity, or political independence of another state. Specific acts of aggression include invasion, bombardment, blockade, and attacks on the armed forces of another state. Article 3(a) and (b) of this resolution explicitly include “invasion or attack by the armed forces of a State of the territory of another State” and “bombardment by the armed forces of a State against the territory of another State” as acts of aggression.

So actually you’re wrong

Under international law, the occupier has a responsibility to protect those they are occupying.

So according to you Israel is fully responsible for protecting Gaza, but the actions of 10/7 are fully justified and legal because they aren’t a state?

-3 ( +0 / -3 )

Posted in: Top U.N. court orders Israel to halt military offensive in Rafah See in context

But not officially, As you know very well. Therefore, you cannot categorize it as a state

So the rules of war don’t apply at all to Palestine because of this? Is that what you’re saying? If that’s your argument then Israel shouldn’t have any repercussions handed to them by the international community because these rules only apply to state on state actions, correct?

-3 ( +0 / -3 )

Posted in: Top U.N. court orders Israel to halt military offensive in Rafah See in context

Palestine is not a state

First of all, the State of Palestine is recognized as a sovereign state by 143 of the 193 member states of the United Nations and is a non-member Observer State of the UN.

Second of all, if Palestine doesn’t fit the criteria of being held applicable to UN rules because it isn’t a “state” then by that logic Israel shouldn’t be held applicable for “breaking laws” in its current military campaign against Palestine, because according to you non-statehood makes you exempt.

So which is it?

BoneI it's "illegal " to "surprise attack " soldiers under International Law ?

That's the silliest comment so far....can someone outdo it ?

Article 2(4) of the UN Charter prohibits the threat or use of force against the territorial integrity or political independence of any state. The United Nations General Assembly Resolution 3314 (XXIX) on the Definition of Aggression (1974) defines aggression as the use of armed force by a state against the sovereignty, territorial integrity, or political independence of another state. Specific acts of aggression include invasion, bombardment, blockade, and attacks on the armed forces of another state. Article 3(a) and (b) of this resolution explicitly include “invasion or attack by the armed forces of a State of the territory of another State” and “bombardment by the armed forces of a State against the territory of another State” as acts of aggression.

So yeah, you’re wrong.

Well, Bone... how many IDF soldiers were killed, how many ex IDF soldiers killed

It doesn’t matter, it’s illegal under international law to surprise attack soldiers and kill them. Unless those soldiers are in an active conflict they’re classified as civilians

how many "friendly fire " killed , how many "Hannibal Directive " killed ?

Just one was killed from friendly fire. By the way the Hannibal Directive was officially revoked in 2016 by IDF chief of staff Gadi Eizenkot. 

How would you organise a "military resistance " against an occupying power. ?

I wouldn’t attack civilians, kill civilians, and hide behind my own civilians that’s for sure

this is an Extermination and it is NO DIFFERENT than what A. H. did to the world during WW2.

What an absolutely insane comment. Operation Reinhard was the largest single murder campaign of the Holocaust, during which some 1.7 million Jews from German-occupied Poland were murdered by the Nazis. You can’t even come close to comparing the two

International Law allows resistance against an occupying power.

This includes military resistance.

Please tell me what part of a surprise attack that kills 1200 civilians and taking hostages constitutes as “military resistance”

Those actions are all illegal under international law.

How's that working out for you? I hear someone sold a bond and did a non-US dollar transaction somewhere.

Yet Israel continually claims that Hamas, a resistance group without sea or air power, is a "threat " to Israel's "existence ".

Do you not think Hamas is a threat? Tell that to the 1200 people who were killed on October 7th.

Bone...I sort of give up on you....but really, the "post a source " thing is BS.

Why? Any paper you write at any university will require you to source your claims. It’s literally part of every academic field.

What if the source is Pravda ?

Or "Proud Boys " newsletter.

Or some right wing Israeli paper/politician.

Then you can read their source, trace back where their claiming to have gathered their information from and judge if it’s valid or not

Blinkin in an IV with an American Arab Group in the USA said if the UN approves Palestinian membership, then the US will stop funding any and all programs run by UN.

Subtext is the US is threatening to starve poor nations that rely on food aid because of Israeli interests....Israel , a nation of 10 million people only.

Of course, Israel is a major regional ally of the U.S., obviously they’re going to do all they can to leverage support for their allies. All countries do this.

Question ....what's the problem with Palestinian independence and what is the hold Israel has on US politicians ?

There is no problem with Palestinian independence but the U.S. believes the terms should be negotiated between Israel and Palestine, not by third parties

Prosecutor asks for a warrant to be issued in the normal course of action needed to bring an official charge of Genocide

No, The International Criminal Court prosecutor can request a warrant for an official charge of genocide if they have "reasonable grounds to believe" that crimes have been committed. I’m not sure where you’re getting this idea they need other official charges first

Netanyahu a wanted man on genocide charges

Im not sure where you’re getting your new from because this whole sentence is completely wrong. As of now the ICC prosecutor is applying for warrants, there haven’t been any warrants issued yet. Second of all none of the charges being brought up against Netanyahu are for “genocide”

You act like you are so we'll informed but seem to miss or forget anything you don't like!

That report was in an article right here a few weeks back!

You don't miss an opportunity to comment on any article about Israel and Gaza but you didn't see that one?

No look it up yourself, this game you pay always asking for links when they have been point out multiple times isn't going to work anymore!

If you don’t have a source for your claim just say “I don’t have a source” instead of making up such a long excuse

i googled it and didn’t find anything so I’m just going to assume you’re lying

Seems very improbable that twice the number of women and children are killed than civilian men.

Why is that improbable? Around 47% of the people living in Gaza are under 18, which are classified as children.

What is more likely is Israel count's every male killed as "Hamas" which is what several preliminary UN reports are saying!

Which reports? Can you post them?

Then we have the fact Hamas is back fighting in the North which means Israel really didn't eliminate them as claimed!

When did Israel ever claim to have eliminated all of Hamas? Are you talking about regrouping? If that’s the case then what they mean is that Hamas militants were either killed or driven out of the North and later moved back into the area

The IDF and Israel lied about UNRWA members being involved in October 7th, lied about the hospital having Hamas based there because the independent investigator for the UN asked Israel to provide the proof it claimed it had and Israel couldn't provide a single things, it didn't provide some that the UN investigator rejected, no it had nothing, zero not a single thing and when the 

There’s literally video of Hamas taking hostages to hospitals in Gaza after 10/7. Do you deny that Hamas used hospitals to operate out of?

“Two of the clips show what Israel says are Hamas militants forcing hostages onto the premises of Al-Shifa Hospital on the morning of the Oct. 7 terrorist attack. NBC News used archive photos to confirm that the first clip does show the reception area of the hospital.”

So this "IDF has killed 14,000 Hamas and not 35,000 civilians rings hollow if Hamas was able to regroup in the North!

How do these two points contradict eachother? 14,000 Hamas terrorists being killed and remaining Hamas terrorists regrouping in the North can both be true at the same time

J Bone....

Israel National Times : Politico : Only one third of Hamas terrorists eliminated.

Type that into google search.

I'm an old geeza and I can formulate questions for google....try it yourself in future.

Huh weird. Maybe my comment didn’t go through. I asked for a source on all of your comment including the recruitment claim going up. I don’t seem to see that in the article you posted. I’m sure you just forgot to post it. I’ll let you try again no worries

CIA assessment and USA military analyst believe Hamas forces are not defeated, recruitment is increasing and 65% of the tunnel systems remain in place.

This sounds like an interesting read. Can you post the source?

And yes to J Bone....students should not be naughty....even when their country facilitates a genocide.

Protesting should be encouraged and is the right of all Americans which I fully support. Breaking the law should be punished

That also includes Children, Women and elder.

Yes, that’s exactly what I said…

University is more than a school, where student being punish because disobedience.

If they broke the law they should be punished by the justice system. If they broke school rules they should be punished by the school. Do you disagree?

EU makes occupier angry, should the world that really angry because they the one who slaughter 35 thousands? 

You do realize that the 35,000 number includes Hamas terrorists as well, right? The Hamas controlled Ministry of Health doesn’t distinguish between combatants and civilians

While occupier ally, like to make occupier happy.

https://www.thecrimson.com/article/2024/5/22/harvard-corporation-overrides-faculty-vote-disciplined-seniors/

Those students are facing disciplinary charges for their actions. Do you think you should be able to break school rules without punishment?
