A leader of the American affiliate of Israel’s Red Cross Society is charging that the American Jewish Committee is using his group’s campaign for international recognition as a fund-raising ploy. Gary Kenzer, executive director of the Magen David Adom Midwest Region, told the Atlanta Jewish Times his organization is losing potential funding after the AJCommittee took up the issue of having the International Red Cross recognize Magen David Adom. AJCommittee officials say they are campaigning for the cause not to make money for themselves but to use their clout to resolve an issue that has dragged on for half a century.
