New Red Cross Emblem Paves Way for Israel


Delegates to International Conference Accept New Red Cross Emblem, Paving Way for Israel to Join
By ALEXANDER G. HIGGINS Associated Press Writer
The Associated Press

GENEVA - Delegates to an international conference accepted a new Red Cross emblem Thursday despite Syrian objections, paving the way for Israel to join the humanitarian movement after nearly six decades of exclusion.

The 192 signatories of the Geneva Conventions approved the new "red crystal" emblem by vote after last-ditch negotiations between Israel and Syria over Damascus' demands for humanitarian access to Syrian citizens in the Golan Heights broke down.

"I can inform you that the protocol has just been adopted," said Didier Pfirter, a Swiss diplomat who has been coordinating global efforts to muster support for the new emblem that would enable Israel to join the movement without having to use the red cross or Muslim red crescent already in use.

"Unfortunately, it has not been possible to adopt the protocol by consensus, but it has been adopted by a clear majority," said Pfirter, adding that he still did not have the exact vote count.

I think they should just make the emblem a blob.

Then it could be the International Red Blob.

That would work for everyone.

Red crystal !!

Speaking on Monday, Jakob Kellenberger, president of the International Committee of the Red Cross (ICRC), thanked Switzerland for its "strong commitment" on the issue.

He stressed the "exclusively humanitarian nature" of a third additional emblem and urged nations to take a decisive step towards universality of the movement.

Under the change, countries would be able to place their own symbols inside the red crystal, as long as they have been in use for some time.

This would open the door for Israel's Magen David Adom (MDA) to finally join the International Red Cross and Red Crescent Movement after more than 50 years.

Ok, ignore my last comment. I didn't read the entire article Deep posted, nor did my computer show the symbols.

Canadiens —*that rocks.
