One hundred and thirty Dutch medical doctors have formed an action group, “Recognition,” to urge The Netherlands Red Cross to insist at next week’s International Red Cross conference at Bucharest that Israel should be admitted as a member. It calls the continued barring of Israel on the ground that Israel does not use the Red Cross emblem but the red Magen David absurd since the Arab Red Crescent and the Persian Red Lion societies have been admitted.
