Petition Against Red Cross Discrimination Against Israel.
No More Second Class Status For Israel With The Red Cross - Sign the Petition
Mr. Samuel Schmid
President of Switzerland:
Israelâ€™s Magen David Adom (MDA) is internationally recognized for its critical, life-saving, humanitarian work around the globe, and is immediately available to be on the frontlines with aid and expert assistance at major global disasters.
The International Committee of the Red Cross (ICRC), for over five decades, has steadfastly refused to correct the shameful history of discrimination and exclusion â€“ and grant Israelâ€™s Magen David Adom (MDA) and its Star of David emblem full and equal status in the family of nations.
I therefore join with the Simon Wiesenthal Center to petition you to lead Switzerland in exercising its political and moral obligation by immediately convening a diplomatic conference of world governments to amend the 1949 Geneva Conventions and finally put an end to a shameful injustice, that has become emblematic of a broader double standard against the Jewish State in international forums.
