WORLD VISION ‘SHOCKED’ BY TERRORISM FUNDING BY CHIEF AID DIRECTOR IN GAZA…….

Eh, yeah, riiiiight…..

There can be no surprise when they’re dealing with an authoritarian /Islamonazi regime, were everyone serves the status quo or else.

UPDATE: Israellycool has a run in with World Vision over logo use. Brian of London’s initial post is here.

The part blotted out is this.

World Vision contacted my web host with a DMCA takedown notice on the basis of this violating their intellectual property rights, specifically the text and logo. I would argue the use of the logo and motto falls under “fair use”.

Be that as it may, it just goes to show you that World Vision can show they mean business when they want to – like against blogs highlighting the very serious allegations against their Gaza employee.

JERUSALEM (RNS) World Vision, one of the world’s largest Christian humanitarian aid organizations, said it has “no reason … at this time” to believe that its operations manager in Gaza funneled tens of millions of dollars in donations to Hamas’ military wing, as Israeli security officials claimed.

The organization said in a statement Thursday (Aug. 4) it was “shocked” to learn that the Shin Bet, Israel’s domestic security service, had charged Mohammad El Halabi with providing support to Hamas.

The Shin Bet said in a statement that during interrogations over the past six weeks Halabi admitted to being a Hamas activist and using his position “to divert the humanitarian organization’s funds and resources from the needy to benefit of Hamas’s terrorist and military activities.”
