Via ArcaMax: A vast archive of 47 million German documents on Nazi Holocaust victims has been opened to the public. Kept in Bad Arolsen, West Germany, miles of shelves contain detailed records of 17.5 million forced laborers, concentration camp victims and political prisoners. Until now the files were used to trace missing persons, reunite families and provide information for compensation claims. The International Committee of the Red Cross (ICRC) manages the files. How ironic that the ICRC manages the archives. I find that reprehensible, knowing the history of the International Red Cross’ indefensible bias against the Magen David Adom in

Now, if Palestine were a real country, and if the Palestinian National Covenant didn’t already contain articles within it calling to commit genocide against “the Zionist nation”, I could see how The 1948 Convention on the Prevention and Punishment of the Crime of Genocide (Geneva) would have implicit jurisdiction, but considering that Palestine is just a name for some entity that doesn’t exist, I am suspicious of the Red Cross, considering its own Jew-hating reputation already precedes itself. From HNN: Tonight BBC America featured a truly bizarre report by Katya Adler. There they were, Palestinian militants from Gaza wearing ski

The Red Cross was once allowed to visit Theresienstadt, which was spruced up for the occasion; inmates were dressed up and baked goods suddenly filled the shelves. (The Red Cross concluded that the Jews were being well-treated.) In reality, starvation and disease proved rampant. Of the 200,000 people (mostly Czech

The Red Cross admitted Israel to the worldwide humanitarian organization Thursday, ending decades of exclusion. The organization simultaneously admitted the Palestinian Red Crescent society, making an exception to the rule that societies have to be under a sovereign state. An optional new emblem was adopted so that Israel could retain its red star of David instead of having to adopt the red cross. In a 191-72 vote, the body rejected a Muslim amendment that challenged Israel.

Via Israel Highway: The International Committee of the Red Cross (ICRC) is universally recognized as a genuinely humanitarian organization. There are however a few dark stains on the seemingly whiter-than-white humanitarian organization. Several years ago, the director of archives for the Geneva-based ICRC confessed that the organization had kept silent while the Nazis murdered 6 million Jews. He admitted, “Very clearly, the ICRC’s activities with regard to the Holocaust are sensed as a moral failure.” In more recent times, the ICRC was accused of another moral failure: the refusal to accept Israel’s Magen David Adom (MDA) organization as a full
