Red Cross Bares Its Heart and Soul, Honors PA Terrorists

The Red Cross, the folks who demand Israel allow jail visits by terrorists’ families but winked when Hamas held Shalit as hostage, honors Palestinian Authority “prisoners” – the ones who kill Jews.

Red Cross vehicle carries Palestinian Authority terrorists freed from Israeli jails.

The International Red Cross together with the Palestinian Red Crescent in Jenin planted 150 trees bearing the names of “veteran prisoners” who were convicted and jailed for murdering Israelis.

Most foreign and local media call them “militants,” reserving the word terrorists for those who kill people for political gain in a media outlet’s home country.

The Palestinian Authority now has helped the Red Cross add another word to the Orwellian Middle East dictionary: “Veteran prisoners.”

The official Palestinian Authority daily Al-Hayat Al-Jadida reported last week that the Red Cross and Red Crescent “planted 150 fruit trees that carry the names of the veteran prisoners jailed in the occupation prisons.” The article was translated and published on Sunday by the Palestinian Media Watch.

Al-Hayat Al-Jadida told its readers that the two organizations “conducted a ceremony called ‘My Honor is My Freedom’ in the village of Zububa to mark the 150th anniversary of their founding. Fruit trees were planted at the entrance to the village, where the racist annexation and expansion wall that has swallowed up thousands of acres [of land] was built.”

The Red Cross has a very cozy relationship with the Palestinian Authority, where the Red Crescent has long been a member of the international organization. Israel’s Magen David rescue services were not accepted by the International Federation of Red Cross until 2005, but on a condition: Magen David has to agree not to operate in Judea and Samaria or areas in Jerusalem claimed by the Palestinian Authority.

Displaying the Jewish Star of David, the translation of the term Magen David and the symbol used on its ambulances, would suggest that the Red Cross, God forbid, acknowledges that Jews can live in Judea and Samaria and all of Jerusalem.

The Red Cross, in its devotion to protecting the rights of prisoners under the Geneva Convention, dutifully makes sure that Israel opens its jails to relatives of jailed Palestinian Authority terrorists.

It took an entirely different attitude during the five heart-wrenching years that Hamas held Gilad Shalit hostage after kidnapping him in a terrorist attack in 2006 that left two other soldiers murdered. The Red Cross went through the motions of demanding his release but did not place any pressure on the Ramallah-based Palestinian Authority to work for his freedom.

Shalit’s father Gilad said during his son’s captivity, “We demand that the Red Cross’ approach be more active and decisive. I would like to believe that they would give us a sign of life from Gilad. We are conducting ongoing dialogue with the Red Cross but it has not been much help. I did not hear them condemn Hamas on its crime against Gilad. The Red Cross has been a complete failure in this affair.”

It took the Red Cross almost five years until it made a belatedly public appeal for his release. When Shalit was released, the Red Cross did not even examine him.

The Red Cross also took no action against the Red Crescent and the Palestinian Authority’s assisting terrorism in the early part of this century, during the advanced stage of the Intifada that is also called the “Second Intifada” and the “Oslo War.”

IDF occasionally foiled terrorist attacks by inspecting Red Crescent ambulances before allowing them to continue from Judea and Samaria into urban Israel. More than once, soldiers discovered explosives and weapons under the beds of supposedly pregnant women, a gross violation of international law.

This did not stop the Red Cross from honoring the “prisoners.”

If anyone questions that they really are terrorists, check out the background of such “veteran prisoners” as Karim and Maher Younes, Issa Abd Rabbo, Osama Al-Silawi, Mohammed Turkeman, Nasser Abu Surour and Mahmoud Abu Surour, Zaid Younes, Ibrahim Al-Taqtuq, Ikram Mansour, Ahmed Ka’abna, Nael and Fakhri Barghouti and Samir Kuntar, Jamal Hweil, Jamal Tirawi and Jum’a Adam.

The name “Kuntar” should ring a bell.

Born in Lebanon, he joined the Palestine Liberation Organization (PLO) with the stated goal of killing Jews.

At the age of 16, he helped kidnap an Israeli family from Nahariya, on the northeast Mediterranean Coast. He murdered four people, including a 4-year-old daughter, in the presence of her father, who also was killed. He was cited as a hero by Iranian President Mahmoud Ahmadinejad and Syrian President Bashar Assad.

  1. Doesn’t surprise me with the Red Cross. That’s why I will never contribute to them.

  2. John Keytack says:

    This story is so CRAZY I won’t even comment! What the Hell has happened to people’s minds?

  3. Absolutely disgusting that the Red Cross would do this. I’m ashamed of them and of my contributions to them. They won’t get any more from me.

  4. Arie's Pragmatic Politics says:

    I'm not sure why the shock. During the Shoah, the ICRC actively supported the nazis! At the end of the war, they aided assisted and financed the escape of nazis from justice – aided by the vatican and switzerland! While Gilad Shalit was being held captive, they refused all calls to at least check on him.

    The ICRC is and always wasa group dedicated to the eradication of Jewry.

    Remember that the next time you donate to the US Red Cross – a portion of all donations goes to the ICRC. There are numerous groups in the US that carry out their supposed mission – and do not contribute to global Jew hatred.

  5. I don't give even 10cents to the red cross. an organization who did not come to help jews when arabs sought to decimate the new state of Israel and is still licking arabs tuches. I give to the Salvation Army, a wonderful organization.

    The Red Cross is living up to its history. When I was an American soldier in Germany in 1945/1946, shortly after WW2, the American Red Cross had installations, the purpose of which was to provide services of various kinds to the soldiers. The Red Cross women did next to nothing for the every day G.I., but they enjoyed mingling with and dating the officers. On the other hand, as we travelled through Germany's British Zone, the Salvation Army was there for us whenever we stopped at their centers.

    The word “Taqiyya” literally means: “Concealing, precaution, guarding with the intention of deflecting attention, foiling or pre-emptive blocking. It is currently employed in fending off and neutralising any criticism of Islam or Muslims.

    Falsehoods told to prevent the denigration of Islam, to protect oneself, or to promote the cause of Islam are sanctioned in the Qur’an and Sunna, including deceiving by making distorted statements to the media such as the claim that Islam is a “religion of peace”. Recently an IMAM WALKED OUT BEFORE THE SInging OF HATIKVAH at an holocaust interfaith service. HE TOLD US BEFOREHAND HE WOULD DO SO. I refused to attend and resigned from the organiztion. I created the holocaust service and formally served as president of the organization. The Iman promised me he would have a press conference with me declaring in America we will not listen to Morsi and others who call Jews Apes and ask for our destruction.
