The United States State Department has asked the International Red Cross to recognize Magen David Adom (Red Star of David) as well as the Red Crescent of Muslim nations. The US argued that Israel has been a signatory to the Geneva Convention for over 53 years, and as such deserves recognition by the Red Cross, Army Radio reported.
