At the time PMW noted that this isn't the first time that the Red Crescent was involced in glorifying terror, and they had previously complained to the ICRC about how their funds are being used. The responses from the ICRC from previous occasions were outrageous:
In the past, the International Red Cross (ICRC) responded that they don't tell the Palestinian Red Crescent how to spend the money given to it by the ICRC. When the Palestinian Red Crescent together with the ICRC glorified terrorists by planting 150 trees bearing the names of "veteran prisoners," the ICRC defended the Palestinian Red Crescent's right to do so, arguing that each branch has the right "to define [its] own priorities and activities and to allocate funds accordingly."The official position of the ICRC is that, if their branches believe in murdering Jews, then that is perfectly OK with them.
The official purpose of the ICRC is in complete contradiction to this position:
Its purpose is to protect life and health and to ensure respect for the human being. It promotes mutual understanding, friendship, cooperation and lasting peace amongst all peoples.
PMW has written another complaint to the ICRC over this latest repulsive incident:
We'll see if the most prestigious humanitarian organization in the world will again defend funding those who celebrate mass murderers.
We have lots of ideas, but we need more resources to be even more effective. Please donate today to help get the message out and to help defend Israel.
