American Red Cross Calls for Recognition of Israel's Magen David Adom Society, and has been doing so for five years. (Where were they before?) The International Red Cross will do anything to avoid seeing Jews as people; now they are proposing changing their symbol altogether. If the issue were only symbols, they could have accorded full status to Magen David Adom years ago. They haven't.

Although the International Red Cross claims its cross has no religious meaning, but was simply a reversal of the flag of Switzerland, to bespeak neutrality, one does wonder what the person who made the cross so famous would think.
