Still in captivity. In spite of the fact that 1701 requires their "unconditional" release.

Yet another impotent UN resolution.

As usual Israel's part of the bargain will be enforced (Kofi Annan will make sure of that) but the arbas are given a free pass.

Such an informed point of view!

The last I heard they were still in good condition.

Of course Hezbollah, contrary to the Geneva Convention, has refused to allow the IRC to visit them.

I just heard that the head Hes. guy was still trying to negotiate a prisoner-swap w/ Israel... I hope he holds his breath until that occures. He will then be one "good" terrorist!

Don't believe everything you think

Is Hezbollah a signatory to the conventions?

Article 33 clearly states that collective punishments are war crimes, but that doesn't seem to stop Israel from repeatedly perpetrating those criminal acts of aggression.

Hezbollah, as a part of the Lebanese government, is bound by the Geneva Conventions.

Good point. So, why isn't Israel bound to the conventions?

They are bound by the conventions. I know that there is some controversy about their use of cluster bombs but I have to say that modern warfare against enemies who use women and children as human shields is going to be a bloody affair for the civilian population.
