Abbas: Recognize Terrorists as Prisoners of War
Arutz Sheva ^ | 17/4/12

Posted on 04/17/2012 3:38:18 PM PDT by Eleutheria5

The PA will turn to Switzerland to request that PA prisoners in Israel be recognized as prisoners of war, Chairman Mahmoud Abbas said Tuesday as he celebrated Prisoners’ Day. Switzerland is the depository state of the Geneva Convention.

Recognition of PA prisoners as prisoners of war would mean better conditions, ...

Why don't the terrorists recognize the rules of war, then? Wear uniforms instead of disguises, don't hide behind civilians, don't target civilians...

That would lead to better conditions for everyone who isn't a terrorist.

Weren’t most POW’s fighting in uniform and didn’t they fight military personnel instead of civilians?

In actuality as terrorists they are the same as spies and should have already have been executed as such.

That would contradict more than 2000 years of legal development. If you want to be treated as prisoners of war, then you must observe the rules of war.

Too bad, but blowing up women and children, picking up babies by their feet and knocking their brains out, all that sort of thing, just isn’t very nice.

Hard as it might be for a Mohammedan to understand why.

In point of fact, according to the rules of war, these terrorists should be given summary judgment and executed on the spot, unless they might be useful sources of information.

OK. So by all means let’s observe the Geneva Convention. Marwan Barghouti should be the first to go. They better start stocking up on virgins in the herafter.

If they executed all the terrorists as spies, that would improve conditions in prison for all the low-level drug pushers, purse snatchers and pedophiles that would make up the non-terrorist part of the prison population. Those poor pedophiles would get bigger food portions, more visitation times, and have the ping pong table all to themselves, and outside of prison there won’t be any more Gilad Shalit swaps.

OK Abbas, we're at war.

That means any and every person in Abbas is considered an enemy combatant and will be hunted down and killed like rats till they surrender.

On television networks, on ships, in magazine interviews, while standing by airports awaiting aid, everywhere and anywhere you will be in a free fire zone. THAT's what war is. Not this mealy mouthed cr#p that our TOFUS and gay quislings in the legislature and butt licker flag officers think war is. It's total destruction of the opponent's ability to continue our political dispute. So when either we "give up" or you "give up" it's ON.

That should include any Abbas sympathizers here. The blood stained uniforms of all the American troops should be draped across the dead bodies of the Abbas sympathizers in THIS COUNTRY.

burn their houses, confiscate their property and kill any collaborators.

That's what real war is.

I for one would f'ing RELISH it.

I don’t think even the Europeans are crazy enough anti-Semites to go along with that.

Simple enough -- Abbas recognizes Israel. Problem solved.

Next day, Abbas is dead. Hamas and Fatah make the streets of Areas A, B and C run red with each others’ blood, and don’t treat one another’s prisoners as POWs. IDF tries to separate them, but rescue squads always arrive a few minutes too late. Later, sanitation trucks remove the dead terrorists’ bodies and the morgues are busying IDing them. Survivors surrender and lay down arms, and are treated as POWs, and pursuant to Geneva Convention at close of war are repatriated to either Ghaza or Jordan, and forever barred from reentering any part of Israel. Israel annexes Judah and Samariah, and Arab residents of former PA areas are offered citizenship if they take an oath of loyalty. Some take up offer, most refuse as protest against existence of Jewish state. Occasional terrorist acts continue to disrupt life, but Arabs progress economically, socially and educationally, and are free to sell land to Jews without being murdered. Many do and use the proceeds to immigrate to the US, Canada, Europe or South America. Most choose not to move to Islamic countries, because they want to enjoy life.

As Islam declines in importance within the Islamic world, Solomon’s Temple is rebuilt, and noboy minds. Die-hard Muslims save face by pointing to prophecies in Suras 5 and 17 foretelling coming of third Temple era.

Problems solved.

As Eleutheria5 correctly points out, they are illegal combatants. As such, entitled to no protection under the Geneva Convention, and are subject to the jurisdiction of the detaining nation. Which is their current status.
