Red Cross Parley Rejects Arab Protests Against Admission of Israeli Delegation

Download PDF for this date

The standing committee of the International Red Cross conference here–which is meeting under the chairmanship of U.N. Palestine mediator Count Folke Bernadotte–today unanimously rejected Egyptian and Syrian protests against Israel’s admission to the parley. Although the two Arab delegations threatened to withdraw from the meeting, they did not carry out their threat.

Earlier, a Brazilian resolution calling for the abolition of all emblems except the official Red Cross by members of the international body was unanimously defeated. Dr. A. Katznelson, of the Jewish National Council of Palestine, recommended maintaining the Israeli Shield of David for the Red Mogen David organization.
