So it sounds like they basically killed another terrorist. He's part of the people's judean front eh?
This wouldnt be like any justification for The Hamas government to fight back legally is it?
Figt back? The Hamas terrorist organization is already fighting the yehudis. The last thing Hamas wants is to 'officially' fight back, the
palestinians would be creamed
, like the last couple of times. THe palestinians have no interest in officially 'going to war' with Israel,
they're under occupation because of war with israel, they can only use terrorism to exert political pressure on the yehudis.
if it were intentional assassination would that give Palestine the right to fight back legally?
Every nation has the right to legally attack another nation that it sees as a threat. Why would the palestinians have to get legal permission, and
from what authority, if it were under attack???
am just curious whether or not they are legally obliged to respond with force or not.
The use of force is going 'beyond the law', and there is no real law governing relations between Israel and its occupied territory of palestine
anyway (yes, there are international human rights of course).
The Palestinian "government" only exists because of the fiat of the isreali government. If they declared war on israel, then Israel would just
revoke their authority as the Palestinian government.
And what, pray tell, would hamas be doing differently if they openly declared 'official' war on Israel??? They're already
at war with them,
and the best they can field is suicide and car bombers.
