p: "The ICRC being pressured by the Red Crescent to not recognize Mahen David Adom is but one example." Of what, peter, your complete lack of knowledge? The ICRC approved two symbols back in the late 1920's; the Red Cross and the Red Crescent. Both were international symbols. In all the long years since then they have rejected attempts by national group who insisted on maintaining their NATIONAL symbols. There is nothing anti-semitic about this; they rejected all other similar applications e.g. the Russians. In 2006 they adopted the Red Crystal specifically to allow national symbols to be incorporated within that new international symbol. Once that was done they were happy to allow groups like the Magen David Adom to join; the MDA simply place their national symbol inside the Red Crystal and viola! it is done. The ICRC had a brand to maintain, peter, which hardly makes them unique.
