Do Palestinians Have The Right To Fight Back ???

Here is a seldom heard point of view:

Long ago, it was settled that resistance and even armed struggle against a colonial occupation force is not just recognised under international law but specifically endorsed.

In accordance with international humanitarian law, wars of national liberation have been expressly embraced, through the adoption of Additional Protocol I to the Geneva Conventions of 1949 (pdf), as a protected and essential right of occupied people everywhere.

Finding evolving vitality in humanitarian law, for decades the General Assembly of the United Nations (UNGA) - once described as the collective conscience of the world - has noted the right of peoples to self-determination, independence and human rights.

If this is true, then the US should erect a no-fly zone over Gaza and the West Bank as part of our "responsibility to protect" the Palestinians, right?

We all know such a thing will never happen, since Israel and its puppet (a.k.a. the USA) control the definition of who is a terrorist and who is a freedom fighter, who is a human being and who is not.
