The Muslim kind.What kind of "war" is it when a foreign supported settler colonial project attacks unarmed civilians?RE: Newly Elected Muslim Congresswomen Favor Eliminating Israel
⁜→ P F Tinmore, et al,
Oh, for heaven's sake. War is a generalized term.
◈ International armed conflicts (IAC), opposing two or more States, ◈ Non-international armed conflicts (NIAC), between governmental forces and non-governmental armed groups, or between such groups only. IHL treaty law also establishes a distinction between: ✦ NIAC in Common Article 3 of the Geneva Conventions of 1949 (GCIV) ✦ NIAC in Article 1 of Additional Protocol II."
(COMMENT)Palestine was not at war.
The term "war" can generalize and encompass all these meanings (making no distinction from one of the others) in a non-legal environment.
Even a blind man with a seeing-eye dog (service dog) can tell you that there is a conflict between:
◈ Factions of different Arab Palestinian Political Groups -◈ Various factions of Arab Palestinian Groups and the Israelis -
So, IF you are going to make such a trivial complaint about the use of the adjective "war" to describe the status and environment of the concerned territory, THEN what is the correct terminology that should be used?
And I will not hold you down to which factions fall in what category: Jihadist, Fedayeen Activist, Hostile Insurgents, Radicalized Islamic Followers, and Asymmetric Fighters.
