Newsflash via YNet: (Palestinian Authority President-for-life-not-a-dictator) Abbas seeks (Geneva convention) Prisoner of War recognition for Palestinian prisoners (unstated but assumablely those located in Israeli prisons).
Palestinian President(for-life-but-he’s-not-a-dictator) Mahmoud Abbas said that the Palestinians will approach states that are signatories to the fourth Geneva Convention in order to demand that the convention's rules apply to the West Bank.
He added that in the spirit of the convention he will also demand that Palestinian prisoners be recognized as prisoners of war and receive all the rights that the convention offers.
Excellent! Mystical Paths is all for this move and recommends Israel immediately accept the PA President-for-life-but-he’s-not-a-dictator’s request…
That way, per the Geneva convention, EVERY Pali-Arab who’s attack targeted CIVILIANS, and that would be almost ALL OF THEM, can immediately be charged with WAR CRIMES and CRIMES AGAINST HUMANITY and imprisoned for life or executed.
The 3rd Geneva Convention (1929) is the Protection of Prisoners of War. But the 4th Geneva Convention (1949) is the Protection of Civilian Persons in Time of War.
(Oh, I know in general this is not a good idea. No one is going to actually monitor or accuse the Palestinians, any such monitoring or accusations would be focused exclusively on Israel. But Lawfare can and should be applied both ways. Israel has enough lawyers that a lawfare team can and should be built and be doing to the Palestinians what they keep trying to do to Israel.)
