Demolition of homes, detention without trial,
deportations, torture, the "liquidation" of those
deemed to be terrorists, shooting a wounded enemy
so as "to confirm his death" - these and other
practices are defined as war crimes by the Geneva
Convention. War crimes are, of course, strictly
forbidden by International Law and also by Israeli law
and the standing orders of the IDF Supreme Command.

May Israeli soldiers, following the orders of the
superiors, end up as defendants in an International
Court - as members of some armed forces and
militias already are?  Are such acts, when perpetrated
by the Israeli army, conductive to the security of
Israel or, on the contrary, severely damaging to the
country's interests?

Following the panel discussion, the floor will be
opened to the audience.
