Red Cross
Makes Appeal

New York (JTA) — The pres-
ident of the American Red
Cross is urging that the
International Red Cross
movement drop its
longstanding refusal to rec-
ognize Israel's Magen David
Adorn.
Elizabeth Dole has called
on Red Cross societies
abroad to "join with us to
assure the full participation
of the Magen David Adorn in
Israel" in the international
humanitarian agency, the
World Jewish Congress re-
ported.
At the same time, both
houses of the U.S. Congress
have adopted a concurrent
resolution calling for inclu-
sion of Magen David Adorn
as "a legitimate national
society of the International
Red Cross-Red Crescent
Movement."
Israel has been unsuc-
cessfully seeking full mem-
bership since the Red Cross
movement was reorganized
in 1948-49, in the aftermath
of World War II.
Six years ago, the move-
ment changed its name to
the International Movement
of the Red Cross and Red
2) Crescent. The move was pro-
tested at the time by the
WJC and Israel, which said
it added religious
) significance to the organiza-
tion's symbols.
The WJC has been work-
, ing with the American Red
Cross in support of the for-
mal inclusion of the Israeli
humanitarian agency in the
international movement.
Ms. Dole issued her call for
inclusion of Magen David
Adorn in letters to the heads
of the largest Red Cross
societies abroad, including
those of Canada, Britain,
France and Germany.
