It gets even worse.
In spite of initial reports that the six-pointed star would be used inside a red crystal, the truth, according to the BBC is that the star is still a "no no" unless the other countries participating in any UN rescue effort give their permission!?
"Israelis, including military medics, will be able to use the crystal by itself on a white flag. On their own territory - or with the agreement of other states participating in UN operations abroad - they will be able to combine it with the star of David."
