International Red Cross Official: World Holds Israel to Legal Double Standard


jacques-de-maioJacques De Maio, head of the International Red Cross in Israel and the Palestinian areas, said this week that the world was holding Israel to a double standard when it came to war crimes allegations.

“Why is there so much more focus on Israel than on Syria [and] other places where many more civilians are dying?” he asked at an Institute for National Security Studies conference in Tel Aviv, pointing out that “in other ongoing wars, more civilians die in one week than in Israeli wars in a full year.”

  1. De Maio must be from the chassidei umos haoylam because the Red Cross has previously always been an anti-Semitic & anti-Israel organization.
