I doano about YOU, but if OUR country were under attack & subjugation I'd do exactly what the "Founding Fathers" did to throw off the Yoke of Oppression from the OCCUPYING FORCES:
Meet in secret, foment revolution, or as the Dutch did... throw their sabots (wooden shoes) into the gears to confound the oppressors at every turn. Or what the AmIndians did, die on their feet rather than bow under the lash in humiliation, yep, and lob home-made rockets over the fences the enemy erects as a statement of defiance, if not a show of force.

Yes but first things first -- tough to put people on trial when you physically can't get to them. There's a reason most war crimes trials have happened post-conflict.
I'm all for it it you can a) get an indictment and b) actually get the accused to a court. But I don't really expect that to happen when the Israelis obviously only pay attention to international law when it's convenient for them ... and I really don't know how an international court would take possession of a Palestinian defendant -- I doubt Hamas or any other group would voluntarily turn anybody over ...

Last I checked most of the engagements of the Revolution were of combatant units vs. combatant units ... the difference here, obviously, are that there's a LOT of civilian casualties as "collateral" damage if not outright targeting of civilian populations as a means of terror campaigns ...
I could be wrong, though, and war foments atrocities regardless of era -- I'm sure savagery against civilians is not unique to the modern era ...
And yeah the genocidal actions against the American Indians were insupportable. Still doesn't justify those of today against different persons, though ...
