  • It's hard to say a country as a whole has "morals." But since their current Government is following the Geneva Convention, I will say that at least the current Government values the accurate interpretation of it. I think they are right to do this.

  • I agree with Stacy. You can't say that the country has good morals or not, however you can feel confident that they will be following good International Law.

  • I think that they did something that any country subscribing to the Geneva Convention would do.

  • I do believe walking into crowded areas with your body loaded with explosives is against the Geneva Convention as well.

  • I think Carpy is referring to HAMAAS and other palestinian liberation groups that use terrorism to try to get there way.
