For a concentration camp... And a supposed genocide practice by the Israeli's against Palestinians... How do you explain the roughly 3% growth in population annually in Gaza?
On topic it was a stupid move by Israel, completely counter productive if they actually want peace.
Generally speaking, genocide does not necessarily mean the immediate destruction of a nation, except when accomplished by mass killings of all members of a nation. It is intended rather to signify a coordinated plan of different actions aiming at the destruction of essential foundations of the life of national groups, with the aim of annihilating the groups themselves. The objectives of such a plan would be the disintegration of the political and social institutions, of culture, language, national feelings, religion, and the economic existence of national groups, and the destruction of the personal security, liberty, health, dignity, and even the lives of the individuals belonging to such groups.
This is how Israel seeks to deter every Palestinian public activist – not to mention one involved with advancing the processes in the International Criminal Court – from realizing his or her rights [..]
If Jarrar broke the law, Israel must put her on trial and prove she committed a crime. If, on the other hand, the reason for her detention is revenge, she must be released immediately.

According to reports, 18 PLC members are currently imprisoned by Israel, with 9 of them being held without trial under the so-called administrative detention - A sort of imprisonment without trial or charge that allows Israel to incarcerate Palestinians for up to six months. The detention order can be renewed for indefinite periods of time.
So basically political prisoners.......
Israel and the USA give themselves special permission to go outside the Geneva Convention rules and treaty?
Good move USA and Israel.
Appears we're both interested in ratcheting up to a war or something and We both have a lot of takers.
Wars are good when the planet is overpopulated and you want to trim back and cull the people. They sell lots of WAR equipment and hey, it's something to watch from your Ivory tower.
As if terrorists abide by any conventions or civilized rules at all.
Lets protect nationless suicide bombing, rocket launching, kidnapping bastards. Something obviously the Geneva conventions were designed for....NOT. They were designed to protect prisoners of war, and prisoners that belongs to sovereign nations and citizens that belong to sovereign nations, agreements between sovereign nations to limit bad things they do to each other. These terrorists have no sovereignty.
