The President of the Lebanese Red Cross, Sami Dahdah, has recently sent an urgent cry for help for the need to respect the Geneva Convention and allow the entry of humanitarian relief efforts into Lebanon. He emphasized the need to respect the rules of the International Red Cross, the Red Cresent Movement and the recently admitted Magen David Adom that prohibit targeting any vehicles carrying the emblems of the Red Cross or Red Crescent. Due to the blockade imposed on Lebanon and due to the recent targeting of relief efforts that tried entering the country by land, no relief efforts are able to enter Lebanon at this time. Dahdah urged the world community for the need to find a solution to this problem soon due to the mounting need for humanitarian relief efforts in his country.

This is a call for action!

We urge all Americans and Lebanese-Americans to gather in front the building of the American Red Cross in D.C. to carry this Lebanese country for help, and urge this organization to do its part to help in this humanitarian crisis.
