The UN and Red Cross seem to be allowing Muslim terrorists to use their ambulances. From Michelle Malkin at Town Hall via FrontPage, with thanks to Cathy J. Palmer:
Last week, an Israeli television station aired footage of armed Arab terrorists in southern Gaza using an ambulance owned and operated by the United Nations Relief and Works Agency for Palestine Refugees (UNRWA). Palestinian gunmen used the UNRWA emergency vehicle as getaway transportation after murdering six Israeli soldiers in Gaza City on May 11. The footage shows two ambulances with flashing lights pull onto a street. Shots and shouts ring out during the nighttime raid. A gang of militants piles into one of the supposedly neutral ambulances, clearly marked “UN” with the agency’s blue flag flying from the roof, which then speeds away from the scene.
AccessMiddleEast.org, a nonprofit global news monitoring service, posted the video (shot by a Reuters TV cameraman) on its Web site last week. To date, Access Middle East managing director Richard Bardenstein in Israel informs me, not a single U.S. television news station has expressed interest in showing the footage to American viewers.
Why should we care? Because since 1950, the U.S. has provided UNRWA with $2.5 billion in taxpayer subsidies — about one-third of the relief agency’s total budget. And because instead of investigating this latest black eye-inducing scandal, the U.N. is blasting American troops for defending themselves against such outrageous tactics — now being emulated by Iraqi guerrilla warriors sniping at our men and women from ambulances in Fallujah. …
While jihadists gain shelter in its emergency vehicles, the UN continues to lambaste the U.S. for assorted wartime “atrocities.” Not one more American dime should go to fund the bloody self-righteousness of the world’s most generous terrorist relief organization.
