Be Careful Who You Trust With Your Giving to Those in Need


Over the last few years we have alerted our readers to the fact that most of the international ‘Christian’ humanitarian aid organisations are extremely anti-Israel, and therefore they are directly working against the plans and purposes of God, their unbiblical behaviour hindering, not hastening the return of Yeshua and the restoration of the Kingdom of God in the Earth.

World Vision and Tear Fund are two such groups who are very anti-Israel. Now the truth has been exposed that World Vision is not only anti-Israel, but that they have been giving the money that well meaning Christians have donated to Hamas to buy weapons to carry out terror attacks against Israeli Jews. This news is now being published on many media websites. Australia & Germany have immediately ceased all funding of World Vision.

The Shin Bet (Israel’s Security Agency) recently announced the arrest of Mohammed El-Halabi, 38, from the Gaza Strip. El-Halabi is director of the Gaza branch World Vision. He was detained on suspicion of serious security offenses carried out for Hamas. During the investigation, El-Halabi revealed that he has been a Hamas member since his youth and had undergone organizational and military training some 15 years ago. In 2005, Hamas dispatched El-Halabi to infiltrate World Vision. He said Hamas believed that he had a good chance of infiltrating the humanitarian aid organization because his father works for the UN and he himself had worked for the United Nations Development Program.

El-Halabi acknowledged that his father, Halil El-Halabi, who has served as head of UNWRA’s educational institutions in the Gaza Strip for years, is a member of Hamas and uses his position as a UN employee to help the terrorist organization. Shortly after being employed by World Vision, El-Halabi began to use his position to benefit the Islamist terrorist organization, primarily by diverting funds meant as aid to strengthen Hamas’ terrorist arm. El-Halabi was appointed director of the Gaza branch where he controlled the budget, equipment and aid packages which amounted to tens of millions of dollars.

The alleged funneling of tens of millions of World Vision charity dollars to Hamas for terror purposes is only a tiny example of the massive abuse of aid cash intended for Gaza residents that instead is used to fund Hamas, a senior Knesset member who used to head the Shin Bet intelligence agency said Monday. The funneling of international aid to finance terror by Hamas and other violent Islamist groups in the Gaza Strip is widespread and the world is hideously naive as regards the scope of the problem.

Australia and Germany have suspended funding to the World Vision. Australia’s Department of Foreign Affairs and Trade (DFAT) called the allegations “deeply troubling,” and said that it was “urgently seeking more information from World Vision. We are suspending the provision of further funding to World Vision for programs in the Palestinian Territories until a rigorous investigation is complete.” Any diversion of the generous support of the Australian and international community for military or terrorist purposes by Hamas is to be deplored.

At the end of the week it was announced that a worker for Save the Children organisation has also been working for Hamas.

As we can see from the above information, we can no longer take anything at face value. We need to be sure and thoroughly check out every organisation that we partner with in any way. If we discover that they have no heart or interest in Israel, the alarm bells should be ringing.
