For the past four years, Tel Aviv based civil rights center Shurat HaDin has been warning that funds provided to Gaza by the world’s largest evangelical charity World Vision were being utilized for terrorism, the organization said in a statement Thursday, following the indictment by Israel of Mohammed El Halabi, a Hamas terrorist and senior WV employee who is accused of transferring as much as $50 million in charity funds to support Hamas terrorist activities.

In 2012, Shurat HaDin notified the Australian government that its aid money administrated by World Vision was being transferred to front charities of Palestinian terror groups in Gaza. Both the Australian government and WV rejected Shurat HaDin’s warning.


In 2015, Shurat HaDin again cautioned the Australian government that WV was operating as an active arm of the PFLP and other terror groups. WV chief executive Tim Costello vehemently denied the charges and claimed that WV had “no interest in supporting terrorism.”

However, as of this week, Shurat HaDin’s warnings against WVA have been proven true. Israel’s internal security service has arrested a senior employee of World Vision ver the course of several years, to Palestinian terror organization Hamas.

According to Shurat HaDin President Nitsana Darshan-Leitner, “for years we have been warning that WV is funding Palestinian terror groups in Gaza. WV has repeatedly denied our charges and refused to seriously investigate where its funds are going. They assured us that the organizations they fund had been vetted and were not engaged in terrorism. Who knows how many of Hamas’s missiles and stabbing attacks were funded by WV after they were put on notice that theey were financing Palestinian terror. The assistance to Gaza by foreign aid organizations is directly responsible for the murder of scores of Jews in Israel.”



  1. Do they give a sh*t about Arabs, no, do they want Arabs to kill Jews, yes. It makes about as much sense to question if Hitler knew his government was murdering Jews. That is their essense, their purpose for living, everything else is a front for their evil intent.

  2. Holy Land Foundation Directors are still in prison for providing material support to Hamas. They at least have the defense that they worship Mohammed and it racist to expect Moslems to behave human.

    By contrast, the folks at World Vision who provided material support to Hamas knew exactly what they were doing. They can't claim racism.

  3. Hanna LaConte-WV has participated and funded rockets aimed at kindergartens, Hamas abuse of grass roots Arab Palestinians, murder and mayhem. What they haven't done is make the situation for Arab Palestinian Children better. The Christian prejudices and "Replacement Theology" are manifested by this. How could WV not know? Shurat haDin warned them in 2012, but given the anti-semitism manifested in Australia, this really isn't a surprise. But we all know where WV stands. They aren't the only one to fall for the faked out Arab Palestinian narrative. But I bet, Hanna LaConte….you have never been to the Gaza in your life, for you and yours, and WV certainly were not at Yarmouk, where they were needed. So you and your Jew Hatredz, you and your lying self, realize-your nasty selves are seen through.
