    The international Christian humanitarian organization World Vision has released a statement in response to the recent news that the Obama administration gave it money to help fund an al-Qaeda affiliate. The National Review published a story on Wednesday that the Obama administration approved $200,000 in grant money to the Sudan-based Islamic Relief Agency, with World Vision as intermediary, even though the organization was listed as a terrorist affiliate in 2004. "Despite this well-documented history, the U.S. Agency for International Development (USAID) in July 2014 awarded $723,405 to World Vision Inc., an international evangelical charity, to 'improve water, sanitation and hygiene...

    People walk past the building that houses the offices of Cambridge Analytica in central London, March 20, 2018. Share WASHINGTON — Long before its controversial roles in the 2016 Brexit vote and U.S. presidential election, Cambridge Analytica influenced elections in Africa. The data mining company, under fire for its alleged use of 50 million Facebook accounts to shape campaign messages for then-candidate Donald Trump, also played a role in elections in Kenya and Nigeria, according to new reports. The company's first involvement in Africa dates to the general election in South Africa in 1994. That election marked the end of...

    The confession by global charity World Vision will dismay supporters, including Prince Harry's fiancée, the charity's ambassador until last year. Desperate survivors of the disaster were forced by paid employees of World Vision -- which received £17 million from the UK Government last year -- to have sex or pay money for World Food Programme aid. The revelations -- brought to the attention of the MoS by a former World Vision worker -- will fuel concern over abuses by aid workers following the scandal over the use of prostitutes by Oxfam officials, also in Haiti. Last night, MPs demanded an...

    There are times when the truth is troublesome and people don’t want others to know it. The thing is true, but it doesn’t fit the narrative that someone wants to project. For example, there is a long list of unusual deaths and alleged murders of people involved with the Clintons. The list can be found on Bing and Yahoo, but not on Google. Mrs. Clinton is running for president of the United States. Some people might want to know what is on the list before they vote. But it looks like Google doesn’t want people to have the information because...

    Recently the Christian mega-charity World Vision was exposed and publicly shamed by the Nation of Israel for allowing diversion of donor money to the Hamas terror organization. The Israeli Ministry of Foreign Affairs posted the following report on its website: http://mfa.gov.il/MFA/ForeignPolicy/Issues/Pages/Behind-the-Headlines-Hamas-exploitation-of-World-Vision-in-Gaza-to-support-terrorism-4-August-2016.aspx Following is a summary of the report taken from an article by Caroline Kendal: “60% of World Vision’s annual budget for the Gaza Strip was diverted to Hamas. 40% of funds for civilian projects were given in cash to Hamas combat units. Funds for the needy in Gaza were diverted to Hamas for the construction of terror tunnels and...

    With an indictment unsealed last week, Israeli investigators have sounded an alarm over the illicit use of global aid money to fund Palestinian terrorism. Prosecutors in the city of Beersheba allege that Mohammed El-Halabi, Gaza Strip director of the California-based charity World Vision, transferred tens of millions of dollars to Hamas to buy weapons and build underground attack tunnels. Although World Vision denies fault, the governments of Australia and Germany have halted donations pending investigations. This revelation should spur a broader reassessment of American aid to the Palestinian government. For two decades the Palestinian government has used U.S. and other...

    Eighty thousand dollars of aid donated to World Vision by the United Kingdom, which was intended to help the civilians of Gaza, build badly-needed infrastructure, and provide food and medical care to those in need, was instead invested in building a Hamas military base and pocketed by the terrorists who constructed it. "In this compound we have identified surveillance and observation capabilities facing north, towards Israel." IDF Spokesperson Lt. Col. Peter Lerner said. "I can also tell you that in June 2015 we targeted components within the compound following a rocket attack against Israel." The active Hamas military base, codenamed...

    World Vision charity denies its Gaza chief diverted 60% of his budget to terror group, which allegedly used the cash to finance weapons, tunnels. Over the course of several years, the Hamas terrorist organization siphoned off “tens of millions of dollars” from the US-based World Vision charity for its military wing, the Shin Bet security service said Thursday. Muhammad Halabi, a Hamas member and manager of operations for World Vision in Gaza, was indicted on a number of security-related charges in a Beersheba court on Thursday for his role in the alleged scheme.

    Mohammed El Halabi, an employee of World Vision, the world’s largest evangelical Christian charity, has been charged in Israel with funneling tens of millions of dollars to the military wing of Hamas, a designated international terrorist organization affiliated with the Muslim Brotherhood. The arrest was made June 16, according to the Israeli daily Haaretz, but a gag order on the case files was lifted Wednesday and Halabi was indicted Thursday. The indictment reveals details of how Hamas infiltrated Federal Way, Washington-based World Vision, a global Christian outreach active in nearly 100 countries. Halabi, director of World Vision’s Gaza branch, was...

    Australia’s Department of Foreign Affairs and Trade has suspended funding of World Vision programs in Palestine, after the head of the charity in Gaza was charged by Israel for allegedly providing funds to Hamas. The World Vision Australia chief executive, Tim Costello, has welcomed the suspension but said the charity was “mystified” by the charges given that independent audits had found its programs in the Palestine were clean. Israel’s domestic security agency Shin Bet alleges that Mohammad El Halabi, the director of the Gaza branch of World Vision, used his position to divert tens of millions of dollars of humanitarian...

    Jesus is becoming less and less a figure to whom people commit their lives. A Barna survey earlier this year found that while 65 percent of Boomers made a personal commitment to Jesus, only 46 percent of Millennials had. They are also 10 percent less likely to believe Jesus was divine, compared to Boomers. Jesus may be losing his luster in our culture of decreasing church attendance and religious beliefs. Still, I find there is a Jesus who everybody loves, the Jesus who modeled what it means to show compassion to the stranger, care for the widow, bind up the...

    The figures are astonishing. There are more than 195,289 registered charities in the UK that raise and spend close to £80 billion a year. Together, they employ more than a million staff – more than our car, aerospace and chemical sectors – and make 13 billion ‘asks’ for money every year, the equivalent of 200 for each of us in the UK. But many charities have become hungry monsters, needing ever more of our money to feed their own ambitions. And while registered charities claim that almost 90p in every pound donated is spent on ‘charitable activities’, many spend at...

    Conservative Christians have generally been known for their enthusiastic support for the Jewish state. But a new movement of young activists is seeking to change that.In 2010, a film was released that perfectly encapsulated the erosion of Evangelical Christian support for Israel. The film, With God on Our Side, featured a young man learning about the Palestinian struggle and coming to see Israel not as evidence of God’s faithfulness, but as a mean and heartless nation enabled by American Evangelicals who have embraced Zionist ideology. The film’s narrative of peace-loving Palestinians mistreated by heartless Israelis and their Christian Zionist supporters...

Jacquelline Fuller, director of corporate giving for Google Inc., said in an email Wednesday to The Associated Press that she remains a "huge fan" of the group's work on behalf of the poor, but she resigned Friday "as I disagreed with the decision to exclude gay employees who marry."

    Why Does The Christian Post Espouse Leftism in Brazil? By Julio Severo The U.S. version of The Christian Post rightly addressed the recent World Vision flap on gay “marriage” by quoting prominent evangelical leaders. Their responses were mostly conservative. The first World Vision (WV) stance favoring this faux marriage was universally disapproved among conservative Christians. Its repentance was welcome. In no way, the Christian Post condemned these conservative leaders and their views. In a strange twist, the Brazilian version of The Christian Post decided not only to publish nothing from its U.S. version on the WV flap, but it...

    World Vision, an evangelical Christian charity that does good work the world over, stunned its donors last week with the announcement that henceforth it would employ the parties in a same-sex marriage. Not entirely surprising, two days later the policy was canceled. Call it World Vision’s 20/20 epiphany. World Vision is perhaps best known for recruiting sponsors for poor children overseas, and its supporters were shocked by its abandoning traditional and Christian values. They overwhelmed the switchboard with telephone calls and flooded the World Vision inbox with emails. They got results and an apology. “We have listened to you and...

    The U.S. branch of World Vision based in Federal Way, Washington has about 1,100 workers with an annual budget of one billion dollars per year. The current president, Richard Stearns, announced this week that same-sex “marriage” was now acceptable but they would still require their employees to confine their sexual activities to be within marriage. Same sex “marriage” may be acceptable to World Vision but not to God. The Bible still teaches that perversion is still an abomination and is not approved or acceptable by Him and all true believers. Maybe part of World Vision’s problem is they have a...

    World Vision, in one of the most abrupt turnarounds in modern history, has done a complete about-face on its embrace of sodomy-based marriage. Less than 48 hours after saying the organization was just fine hiring couples who were in same-sex "marriages," the organization has repudiated that stance, acknowledging that the board "made a mistake," and admitting they had failed "to be consistent with World Vision U.S.'s commitment to the traditional understanding of Biblical marriage." Says its president and board chairman, "We...humbly ask your forgiveness."

World Vision U.S. President Richard Stearns and board chairman Jim Bere announced in a letter the reversal today (March 26), just two days after drawing ire from the Christian community by saying World Vision would begin hiring legally married gays. "Today, the World Vision U.S. board publicly reversed its recent decision to change our employment conduct policy," they...
