INTERNATIONAL AID DIVERTED?

Israel has alleged that humanitarian aid donated (by World Vision) for the residents of the Gaza Strip was given almost exclusively to Hamas terrorists and their families. Every month, El-Halabi distributed thousands of packages of food, basic commodities and medical supplies to Hamas terrorists and their families, commodities that World Vision had intended to go to the needy.

NEWS

A State Department grant intended to rally support for peace between Israel and the Palestinians also helped set up political infrastructure that was later used for a campaign opposing Israeli P.M. Netanyahu in 2015, according to a bipartisan Senate investigative report released on Tuesday. In releasing the report, Senator Rob Portman criticized the State Department for lax oversight and for undermining a U.S. ally. http://www.politico.com/story/2016/07/state-department-grant-netanyahu-225414  Read more
