Palestinians in Violation of Treaties Abbas Just Signed
(dailyalert.org, Apr. 4, 2014)

The Palestinians are in clear violation of at least 11 of the 15 international treaties they just signed. For example, the Geneva Conventions establish rules to regulate conduct during armed conflicts. Hamas routinely exploits schools, mosques, hospitals and cultural centers to carry out attacks that violate Article 51 of the Fourth Geneva Convention. During the imprisonment of Gilad Shalit, Hamas violated the Third Geneva Convention, including the right to unfettered Red Cross access.

    While the Palestinians just signed the International Convention on the Elimination of All Forms of Racial Discrimination, under Palestinian law, selling property to Jews is punishable by death. Senior Palestinian officials have been heavily involved in anti-Israeli and anti-Jewish incitement for decades.

    While the PA signed the Convention against Torture, a February 2014 report by the Palestinian Independent Commission for Human Rights details numerous cases of torture and mistreatment in PA and Hamas prisons. In particular, the number of torture cases in prisons belonging to the PA’s Preventative Security Service has skyrocketed. (The Tower-Israel Project)
