Two International Red Cross workers attempted to prevent the IDF from arresting a senior Islamic Jihad terrorist today. An IDF Egoz unit entered the Red Cross building in Jenin today, arrested the terrorist's accomplice, and found two Kalachnikov rifles at the site. When the soldiers asked to enter the offices, the two female workers - from the U.S. and Britain - would not allow them to do so, saying no one was inside. The Israelis insisted on entering, and found the terrorist, Shadi Sukiya, armed with a pistol. They arrested him without incident. Sukiya has long been wanted for his involvement in a series of murderous attacks against Jews.
There have been other incidents in which the PA Arabs took advantage of the Red Cross' status to further terrorist goals. In January 2002, for instance, the IDF captured a wanted terrorist who was taking advantage of the relatively free passage granted to PA ambulances. He was disguised as a doctor, but alert soldiers at a roadblock near Brachah, just southwest of Shechem, detected and arrested him.
I don't look at it that way. I see two separate organizations under one umbrella. With shared fund raising. I see a lot of American suckers giving money to what they think is the "Red Cross" but the money goes to Red Crescent efforts in Muslim nations. While the Jewish counterpart "Magen David Adom" is excluded and definitely not welcome.
My point is I'm not certain the Red Cross would harbor militant Muslim criminals, but it would make perfect sense that the Crescent does.
Yup. All this and more.
This account says the organization that was raided was Rachel Corrie's (dozer babe) ISM organization
Israeli army says senior Palestinian militant shielded by foreign activists
JERUSALEM - Israeli troops raided the West Bank offices of the International Solidarity Movement on Thursday and seized a wanted member of the militant Islamic Jihad group, the army said.
The army said the man was being sheltered in the Jenin offices of the Palestinian-backed peace group whose members often act as human shields, placing themselves between Israeli soldiers and Palestinians.
An American activist with the group was killed on March 16 while trying to stop an Israeli military bulldozer in the Gaza Strip (news - web sites). She fell in front of the machine, which ran over her and then backed up, witnesses said.
The group said it did not know the man was wanted. The army said the suspect was a senior member of Islamic Jihad who planned a number of attacks on Israelis which were foiled by Israeli security forces.
The army said two women with the group one British and the other Canadian tried to hide the man but the group's spokesman, Tom Wallace, said the two group members were not aware of the man's identity.
The army said that during a search of the four-story building which also houses offices of the International Committee of the Red Cross, international medical group Medicins Sans Frontieres and the Bank of Palestine troops found a pistol in the International Solidarity Movement premises.
Wallace said the man was unarmed and that any weapon was recovered.
Israeli officials are still investigating the bulldozer incident that killed 23-year-old Rachel Corrie, a student at The Evergreen State College in Olympia, Washington.
Five Washington state Democrats are co-sponsoring a resolution that is calling on the State Department to investigate the death. A State Department spokesman has said U.S. officials want the Israeli government to investigate.
The Israeli army said an initial investigation showed the bulldozer incident was an accident but promised a more thorough investigation. Army officials have declined to say whether the bulldozer's operator is back on the job.
Anti-Christian propaganda? Where is one word that is "Anti-Christian"? You are hallucinating.
boy, that makes me glad I didn't go with my first inclination and post that I though all IRC workers should be rounded up and sent to Gitmo... ;0)
Why the bloody h*ll should taxpayers pay for an investigation?
