What’s really behind Israel’s attack on Christian charity World Vision? | The Electronic Intifada

…………………Targeting humanitarian aid

In recent months, Israel has launched a major crackdown on domestic and Palestinian nongovernmental organizations through intimidation campaigns and repressive legislation.

There are indications that the assault on World Vision is the international counterpart to this campaign.

Israel has ordered its representatives around the world to go on an offensive over the matter.

“Specifically, the diplomats were instructed to spread the news of Halabi’s alleged actions among liberal and religious groups who support World Vision,” the Israeli news website Ynet reported.

“Contacts, journalists and relevant opinion makers should be briefed, and an emphasis needs to also be put on the digital arena,” a senior foreign ministry official reportedly ordered.

Diplomats were also armed with “detailed background materials about the case and talking points to be used in meetings, posts on social media and infographics,” Ynet said.

Dore Gold, the director-general of Israel’s foreign ministry, wrote a scaremongering letter to his counterparts around the world claiming in effect that humanitarian aid to Gaza amounts to support for terrorism.

“It’s important to note that Hamas has close ties to the security apparatus in Iran, which is looking for ways to expand its military influence from Syria to Yemen. Beyond that, Hamas has also been closely working with ISIS militants in northern Sinai,” Gold wrote, according to Ynet.

“The bolstering of Hamas’s military abilities – made possible by humanitarian aid – serves the strategic interests of the big destabilizing powers operating in the Middle East today.”

That both Iran and Hamas are mortal enemies of ISIS is apparently no obstacle to Israel making such claims.

But by spreading sensational allegations that a group as well-known as World Vision is “funding terrorism,” Israel may seek to put other organizations and the Israel-friendly Western governments that fund them on notice that all their operations, especially in Gaza, are at its mercy.

It may also be an effort to break growing solidarity for Palestinians in churches, where there has been a strong push to hold Israel accountable through boycott, divestment and sanctions.

Israel has already effectively succeeded in bringing the UN to heel, making it complicit in the so-called Gaza Reconstruction Mechanism through which Israel strictly controls the entry of reconstruction supplies into the territory.

As The Electronic Intifada revealed in January, a top international expert in UN law had warned in a confidential memo that the GRM was illegal and violated fundamental rights of Palestinians.

In an ominous sign, Shin Bet sources have already predicted that World Vision is likely to be only the first of many humanitarian organizations and even UN agencies targeted by allegations that they support “terrorism.”

Zionist extremists launch murder coup against IDF

………………………………The infiltrating-Orthodox in the army felt that now was the time to beat down the old Guard army leadership by publicly and politically humiliating them before the country and the world.

If the kid is convicted of anything less than murder, it will be a victory for the religious extremists, who are eyeing the army as “their” future army. Think of a Zionist Daesh, but one that is taxpayer (including the US) funded.

For a medic to blow a wounded man’s head off is beyond the pale

Of course, corporate media will not touch this part of the story with a ten-foot pole. It does not want non-Jews seeing how Jews have the right, and exercise it, to fight bitterly, tooth and nail, to gain control over their brethren with themselves on top, and where anything nasty said or done is totally justified.

The Israeli Lobby does not want Gentiles to get the crazy idea that they have any right to disagree, oppose or resist the imposition of Hebraic domination by a small outside group tunneling its way to control on top with the help of insiders.

The proof of media being in the bag on this is its not covering the brutal political and religious brawls that take place inside Israel and are widely covered there.

Western media pretends they don’t know, and have never heard anything about it. This is why, despite Uri Avnery being an unrepentant Zionist in terms of accepting that, the Western media takeover is clearly the number one factor to blame for the death and destruction. Uri has published details of the nasty side of Israeli politics, while others would not dare… Jim W. Dean ]…………………more
