TREES FOR TERRORISTS
International Red Cross Planted Trees In Honor of Palestinian Terrorists

IMRA and PMW reported:

Earlier this month, Palestinian Media Watch reported on a ceremony in the Palestinian Authority celebrating the International Red Cross’ 150th anniversary. The official PA daily reported that the International Red Cross (ICRC) together with the Palestinian Red Crescent planted 150 trees bearing the names of “veteran prisoners,” meaning security prisoners who have been imprisoned for many years.

Following PMW’s report, the International Red Cross, in a letter to Weekly Press Pakistan – Canad, denied its involvement in the ceremony:

“Please note that ICRC was not present during the planting of the trees ceremony reported by your website.”

However, not only did ICRC not condemn the Palestinian Red Crescent’s glorification of terrorists in the ceremony, it chose to justify the use of ICRC money by the Palestinian Red Crescent. The ICRC issued a statement defending their right to use donor money any way they choose, even though the issue being raised was the use of ICRC money for terror glorification:

“Over the decades, the ICRC has provided support, including financially, both to the Palestinian Red Crescent Society and to [Israeli] Magen David Adom for their humanitarian programs. It remains the prerogative of the National Society to define its own priorities and activities and to allocate funds accordingly.”
