Outrageous: MDA removes logo from ambulances in Judea and Samaria

Four months ago, Magen David Adom - the local equivalent of the Red Cross - denied that its ambulances were being made to look like the one above when deployed in Judea and Samaria. Now, MDA has admitted it lied.
The Red Cross representative confirmed on Israel Army Radio that MDA has agreed to remove its logo from its ambulances in Judea and Samaria and has committed itself to avoid providing service to these areas. As a result of the agreement between MDA and the PA Red Crescent, MDA will receive international recognition as an emergency response organization, with benefits and budgets unavailable until now.

MKs Dr. Michael Ben Ari and Dr. Aryeh Eldad (National Union) call upon the worldwide supporters of MDA to avoid financial and blood donations to the organization. Blood donations can be made directly to the Hospital blood banks.
Knesset Member Aryeh Eldad (National Union) is furious.
MK Aryeh Eldad (National Union) responded to the Red Cross representative confirmation that MDA will no longer provide service beyond the Green Line. “MDA lied when it said the agreement with the Red Cross and the Red Crescent wouldn’t affect service to Jerusalem, Judea and Samaria.

“MDA must announce that the agreement is void. Otherwise, we will call upon all MDA donors to send their money to emergency response organizations that do not cater to anti-Israeli demands. We will also act to cancel the status of MDA as the national rescue organization, and to take away its rights and State financial support."
As I wrote four months ago, it's time for MDA to leave the Red Cross permanently.

So...MADA lied to the Israeli public, just like Netanyahu, Barak, Sharon, Olmert and Livni lied to the Israeli public.

It is time for everyone to withhold donations to the MDA until they replace the insignia.
