Red Cross Bares Its Heart and Soul, Honors PA Terrorists

Sunday, May 12th, 2013

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.

IDF Saves Life of PA Accident Victim

Monday, February 11th, 2013

The IDF – not for the first time and not for the last time – has saved the life of a Palestinian Authority Arab, this time a motorcyclist who suffered critical injuries in a crash with a mini-bus near Shechem, otherwise known as Nablus.

Israeli soldiers and rescue teams routinely treat Palestinian Authority accident victims, a fact that is virtually buried by the constant media image that the IDF mistreats Arabs.

The mini-bus crushed the motorcycle, and IDF medics treated the unidentified victim, who suffered from severe abdominal bleeding. After administering first aid, they rushed him to BeilinsonHospital in Petach Tikvah, adjacent to Tel Aviv, where he was operated on.

He now is in stable condition.

Medics from Jewish communities through Judea and Samaria frequently come to the aid of Arabs, who usually are aided by the Arab Red Crescent rescue service.

However, Magen David Adom ambulances often come under a firebomb and rock-throwing barrage when trying to help Arabs.

Five Palestinian Injured, Crashed into IDF Jeep

Sunday, April 22nd, 2012

The Ma’an news agency reports that five Palestinians were injured Sunday morning after their van collided with an Israeli military jeep near Hebron, according to medics.

One man was critically wounded and taken by ambulance to a hospital in Israel, Palestinian Red Crescent officials told Ma’an. Medics said four others suffered light to moderate injuries and were taken to Al-Mezan and Al-Ahli hospitals in Hebron.

The men were traveling to work in the Israeli settlement Nahal Negohot, near the southern Judean town of Beit Awwa, at the time of the crash, Red Crescent officials said.

MDA, These Are Your Friends – Red Crescent Employees Arrested for Attack on IDF Soldiers

Tuesday, April 3rd, 2012

This should serve as a cautionary note to Israel’s Magen David Adom (MDA) service, which so eagerly cooperates with the Palestinian Red Crescent, to the point of transferring to the latter the medical authority in the district of Samaria. The folks you’re in bed with might just shoot you.

JTA reports that the goalie of the Palestinian Olympic soccer team and Palestinian Red Crescent employees were among 13 West Bank residents arrested for an attack on Israeli soldiers.

The arrests in the Jan. 20 shooting attack against Israeli troops were announced Monday by the Israel Defense Forces. No injuries were incurred during the attack but a vehicle was damaged, according to the IDF.

Omar Abu Rois, 23, the goalie, is affiliated with the Hamas terror organization and works for the Red Crescent, according to the IDF. He carried out the attack  with Red Crescent guard Salih Bar’al using AK-47 rifles procured by Munzar Abbas, 41,  an officer of the Palestinian “General Intelligence” in Ramallah who is responsible for security at the Red Crescent.

The IDF said the group, who all live in the Amari refugee camp near Ramallah, intended to carry out similar attacks in at least six other locations.
