  • Palestinian Perfidy Warrants Death

    Arutz Sheva ^ | 4/4/2016 | William A. Levinson
    The Israel Network posted this video of two Palestinians who were caught using an ambulance to transport a suicide belt inside a stretcher. Under the laws of war that prevailed universally through most of the 20th century, the driver, and passengers if complicit, would have been stood up against the nearest wall and shot. The laws of the United States, in fact, still provide for any punishment short of death for an act of perfidy if the perfidy does not result in the deaths of innocent people, and execution if the perfidy results in fatalities. Item 19 relates specifically to...

    Following reports that a Red Crescent ambulance passed by the site of Friday's deadly terrorist attack and ignored the victims as they lay dying, the Israeli government will be launching an international campaign against the organization, which in principle does not treat Jews - despite being bound to treat all casualties regardless off their identity. Israel's Magen David Adom (MDA) emergency service, by contrast, regularly treats Palestinians. Prime Minister Binyamin Netanyahu ordered the foreign ministry to lodge a stern complaint with the International Committee of the Red Cross (ICRC) in Geneva, under whose auspices the Red Crescent operates, demanding an...

    Syrian rebels beheaded a Christian man and fed his body to dogs, according to a nun who says the West is ignoring atrocities committed by Islamic extremists. The nun said taxi driver Andrei Arbashe, 38, was kidnapped after his brother was heard complaining that fighters against the ruling regime behaved like bandits. She said his headless corpse was found by the side of the road, surrounded by hungry dogs. He had recently married and was soon to be a father.

    Iranian Red Crescent ambulances were used to smuggle weapons to Lebanon's militant Hezbollah group during its 2006 war with Israel, according to newly leaked U.S. diplomatic memos, which say the "IRC shipments of medical supplies served also to facilitate weapons shipments." According to one of the documents, a person whose name was not published "had seen missiles in the planes destined for Lebanon when delivering medical supplies to the plane." The plane was allegedly "half full" prior to the arrival of any medical supplies, according to the memo. Hezbollah and Israel fought a 34-day war that killed 1,200 Lebanese and...

    BAGHDAD, Jan. 4 - Nearly 50,000 Iraqi refugees returned home from Syria in the final 3 1/2 months of 2007, the latest sign of diminishing violence in this war-pocked country, according to new data from relief workers. "Security has definitely improved, and improved by far," said Said I. Hakki, president of the Iraqi Red Crescent Organization, the aid group that compiled the statistics. "And yet the return is really not that dramatic, when you consider that there are almost 2 million Iraqi refugees out of the country." The new figures, contained in a report scheduled for release Monday, are significantly...
