WHY has World Vision lost its Vision of CHRIST ... and replaced it with a vision like unto the WORLD ?
The World Vision Director of aid to the poor in the Name of CHRIST JESUS has been siphoning off $7.2 million a year to aid militant muslim activities, in the name of Hamas.
This report was made public on Thursday, August 4, 2016, after a lengthy investigation in Israel.
Mohammad El Halabi, World Vision's manager of operations in Gaza, was arrested by Israel on June 15 while crossing the border into the enclave, which is under the de facto rule of Hamas, a group on the Israeli and U.S. terrorism blacklists, according to a news report by Reuters.

Briefing reporters on Thursday, a senior Israeli security official said Mr. Halabi, who has run World Vision's Gaza operations since 2010, had been under extended surveillance.
The official said Halabi, a Palestinian, had confessed to siphoning off some $7.2 million a year, about 60 percent of the World Vision's Gaza funding, to pay Hamas fighters, buy arms, pay for its activities and build fortifications.
"Money was used to fund Hamas and pay armed wing fighters, and food and health packs intended for Gaza residents were also given to Hamas operatives, rather than to their intended recipients, the poor and meek of Gaza," the official said.
In another report, more lengthy, from Israel Today, the sickening details of Mr. Halabi's system of diverting the Christian's donations for the poor were listed. A very clever system of deception was involved, including fake companies and militant "workers" in those fake companies. This has been on-going since 2010.
All of this was discovered during a lengthy investigation beginning in mid-June, when Israel arrested Mohammed El-Halabi, World Vision’s Gaza branch director, on suspicion of terrorist activity.
During the investigation, Mr. Halabi revealed that he has been a Hamas member since his youth and had undergone organizational and military training in the early 2000s.
Ed. Note: Where was the screening for Mr. Halabi before he joined World Vision? How THOROUGHLY was it done ? Why was Mr. Halabi trusted so much?
Was Mr. Halabi even a CHRISTIAN ?
In what Christian church IN GAZA was he a member ?
WHO VOUCHED for Mr. Halabi's CHRISTIAN WALK ?
--- OR ---
Does World Vision make it a habit to recruit indigenous workers and directors who are NOT CHRISTIANS ... as long as they can speak the language ?
In 2005, Hamas dispatched Mr. Halabi to infiltrate World Vision. Mr. Halabi related that Hamas believed that he had a good chance of infiltrating the humanitarian aid organization because his father works for the UN.
Ed. Note: So, does that make Mr. Halabi jr., a CHRISTIAN, covered by the Blood of JESUS, walking in the ways of The LORD ?
Does his father's position make Mr. Halabi WORTHY to handle the funds donated by Christians for the poor ?
Or... was he hired without being converted to CHRIST JESUS ? Are non-Christians hired to work for World Vision ? If so ... WHY ?
He added 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, Mr. Halabi began to use his position to benefit the Islamist terrorist organization, primarily by diverting funds meant as aid to strengthen Hamas’ terrorist arm.
Over the years, Mr, Halabi advanced in the charity’s hierarchy until he was appointed director of the Gaza branch. In this capacity, he controlled the budget, equipment and aid packages which amounted to tens of millions of dollars.
Mr. Halabi employed a sophisticated and systematic apparatus for transferring World Vision funds to Hamas.
He established and promoted humanitarian projects and fictitious agricultural associations that acted as cover for the transfer of monies to Hamas.
Examples of these projects and associations include: greenhouse construction; restoration of agricultural lands; mental health and public health projects for Gaza residents; aid to fishermen; a treatment center for the physically and mentally disabled; and farmers’ associations.
All of these projects and associations were used to transfer funds to Hamas.
The money allocated by World Vision for projects and farmers’ associations reached Hamas in various ways, such as the false registration of Hamas terrorists as employees in charity-sponsored projects; issuing fictitious receipts and inflated invoices in which the difference paid by the charity was transferred in cash to Hamas; transfer of the charity’s checks to Hamas terrorists, etc.
The investigation revealed that the main method used to divert money to Hamas was to put out fictitious tenders for World Vision-sponsored projects in the Gaza Strip.
The “winning” company was made aware that 60 percent of the project’s monies were to be designated for Hamas. In this way, Mr. Halabi ensured a steady flow of cash into Hamas coffers.
According to Mr. Halabi, the funds he diverted to Hamas were intended mainly to strengthen the terrorist arm.
As such, they were utilized to finance the digging of terror tunnels, the building of military bases and the purchase of weapons.
Ed. Note: ... all for the DESTRUCTION of ISRAEL.
Some of the money went to pay the salaries of Hamas terrorists and, in some cases, senior Hamas terrorists took large sums of money for their own personal use.
Mr. Halabi regularly transferred to Hamas equipment that he had ordered on behalf of World Vision, supposedly for agricultural aid. The equipment included: iron rods, digging equipment, pipes and building materials, and was used in fact to construct Hamas military outposts and to dig terror tunnels.
For instance, he initiated a greenhouse project in order to use the greenhouses to hide the sites where terror tunnels were being dug.
In addition, a project for the rehabilitation of [fictitious] fishermen was actually used to provide motor boats and diving suits for Hamas’ military marine unit.
Another regular method of acquiring equipment for Hamas was to disguise Hamas warehouses as World Vision warehouses.
Trucks bringing supplies to the Kerem Shalom Crossing between Israel and Gaza would unload their goods at Hamas warehouses instead of legitimate World Vision warehouses. Hamas operatives would pick up the supplies in the dead of night.
According to Mr. Halabi, the humanitarian aid donated for the residents of the Gaza Strip was in actual fact given almost exclusively to Hamas terrorists and their families.
Non-Hamas members almost never received any benefit from the aid, despite their relative level of need. Needless to say, this is in contradiction to the accepted practice of the humanitarian aid organizations.
Ed. Note: I believe this is called "stealing from the poor." And THAT is accountable as "STEALING FROM THE LORD GOD. "
Every month, Mr. 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.See this link for more details: http://www.israeltoday.co.il/Default.aspx?tabid=178&nid=29759
What went WRONG, World Vision ? Why did World Vision not catch the fake and phony identities of the recipients of $7.2 million a year ?
Despite your many " independent and internal audits" you claim have been conducted on your World Vision branches ... how
could such a thing happen that a WORLDLY GOVERNMENT would be able to
catch the GLARING discrepancy... and you , World Vision, could not ?
And even MORE SO...
Where is the HOLY SPIRIT among you ?
Why has HE departed from your midst ... so much so that NO-ONE in your operation had any idea
FOR 6 YEARS
that your Gaza Strip director was mis-using the funds donated by hard-working, well-meaning Christians, thinking they were helping the poor ?
Perhaps, The HOLY SPIRIT vacated your fine offices when your group could not figure out what was the Will of The LORD ... or take a righteous stand against same-gender "marriages," falsely so called.
Likely, though, this public fall has been a long time in making. It did not develop over-night.
You advertise World Vision as a CHRISTIAN organization, but it is without a doubt that World Vision does NOT share the Good News of Salvation through JESUS CHRIST in ALL of the 100 countries in which you serve.
How do we know that ? We know this must be true because SOME OF THOSE NATIONS and territories -- like the Gaza Strip --- will NOT ACCEPT an open salvation message of The LORD JESUS CHRIST with the aid you bring ! They will not even allow you into their area if you openly preach the Gospel.
Is The LORD JESUS CHRIST pleased with The LIGHT+ of the World ... the ONLY LIGHT+ which can help any person on this globe ... being kept under a bushel ?
And in the Gaza Strip, how in the WORLD are you proposing to change the mind-set ( not to mention the control of the demonic spirits inhabiting islam ) of the young WITHOUT JESUS CHRIST ? It cannot be done.
As dupes, the young people there are PURPOSEFULLY kept hopeless ... until they find "hope" by joining a radical group of jihadists and have some money, dignity, and self-worth... twisted though it may be.
is the official program of the leaders in the Gaza Strip. They will not
allow "help" into that area to benefit the poor BECAUSE it gives the
poor hope and hurts their recruiting process.
In the long run, the young recruits will kill in false hopes of paradise , only to end up in a burning hell themselves ... but you do not care.
At least, you do not care ENOUGH to present them a straight salvation message that The LORD JESUS CHRIST can remove the bondage of sin and give them TRUE HOPE .
No, rather, World Vision is more concerned with having a "broad-based" Christianity ( i.e., one that offends no-one ) so that the FUNDS KEEP ROLLING INTO the organization.
Is CHRIST JESUS concerned with "the organization's" well-being ... or with SOULS rescued from the school of HELL ?
You are Messing with FIRE. Our LORD has seen your motives and your double-talk. HE+ has seen your pandering to Man instead of a clean Walk with HIM+.
HE+ has watched your strenuous efforts to be "politically-correct" instead of RIGHTEOUS before GOD. You CANNOT RUN a Christian organization by CEO's; they think too much like the world.
A CHRISTIAN organization MUST be run by those who are sold-out to JESUS , instead of to the system... if you want to do the work of CHRIST JESUS in this world.
Your organization has been weighed in the balances and found wanting ... fine disclaimers notwithstanding.
