if I walk onto a firing range and get shot whose fault is it? your basic argument is that it doesn't matter how illegally civilians put them selves into the line of fire it doesn't matter. your sympathy and compassion do you credit however your understanding of international law does not. their are multiple parts of just the geneva conventions involved with moving civilians into occupied territory and directly into the line of fire of military action your pacifism blinds you to the reasons behind some the articles. it does you good that you can't concieve of people who would willing put people into harms way to garner military advantage but their are people who do and Israel by its own actions have shown themselves one of these people. but at the end of the day mutually exclusive things remain mutually exclusive but at the end of the day to be a protected person under the law you can't willfully try to engender attacks against ones self by violating parts of the law designed to protect you.
