How can one trust an organization that looked the other way when its Hamas employees embezzled millions of dollars?

Mohammad El Halabi, age 38, the regional operations manager at the international NGO World Vision, is not what the spokesperson of World Vision claims he is. The world’s largest Christian charity issued a statement saying, “World Vision stands by Mohammad who is a widely respected and well regarded humanitarian, field manager and trusted colleague of over a decade. He has displayed compassionate leadership on behalf of the children and communities of Gaza through difficult and challenging times, and has always worked diligently and professionally in fulfilling his duties."
Among El Halabi’s “duties,” according to Israel’s security, the Shin Bet (in Hebrew Shirut Bitahon), was to divert millions of dollars intended for Gaza’s civilian population, to the Hamas’s military wing. He also stole food and health packages intended to reach poor Gazans and injured children, to be used by Hamas terrorists. In the indictment filed against El Halabi last week, he is accused of funneling tens of millions of dollars in aid money from the U.S. and Europe, which was intended for the people of Gaza to fund the construction of terror tunnels aimed at kidnapping and killing Israeli military personnel as well as civilians. In addition, World Vision money went to fund Hamas’ rocket buildup and the construction of military posts. 
On June 15, 2016 the Shin Bet arrested El Halabi at the Erez border crossing, charging him with serving six years as an agent of Hamas’ military wing, Izzadin al-Qassam Brigades.  According to the Shin Bet, El Halabi, a resident of Jabalia (in the Gaza Strip), was tasked with infiltrating World Vision, a U.S. based Christian aid group, and covertly funneling $7.2 million a year in aid money to Hamas.  Of that sum $1.5 million a year went to the Izzadin al-Qassam Brigades.  Simultaneously, Halabi also monetarily supported and cooperated with organizations supporting the BDS movement.
Additionally, Halabi admitted that the humanitarian aid money, about $4 million a year, was used to build tunnels and for purchasing arms.  He told his interrogators that food stores for the needy Gazans and funds to support children were also transferred to Hamas. To cover his schemes, Halabi set up fictitious humanitarian projects, and fictitious agricultural associations.  Hamas operatives were registered as workers in non-existent projects.  Halabi used invoices for such projects and passed the cash to Hamas.  Shin Bet investigators also alleged that Halabi initiated a project that involved building greenhouses that were actually used to mask tunnel building activities.
El Halabi also used $80,000 in British aid to pay salaries to Hamas operatives, and give bonuses to terrorists who fought against Israel during Operation Protective Edge in 2014. And, as already mentioned, funds were used to build Hamas military bases, including one code-named “Palestine” that was built in 2015, using British money.
Luke Akehurst, who is campaigning for membership in Britain’s Labor party National Executive Committee, had this to say about British funds going to Hamas. “Kind-hearted Brits have given tens of thousands of pounds to a Christian charity to help needy children in Gaza, only to find that they were duped and their money stolen and diverted to fund Hamas’s terrorist activities.  It’s outrageous that instead of helping Gazan children to be fed and clothed, Hamas prefers to build terrorist infrastructure, dig attack tunnels into Israel, pay their terrorist fighters, and buy missiles that will be used against Israeli civilians.”
According to Ynet-News (August 4, 2016) Israeli Legal Center Shurat HaDin has warned that “For the past four years that funds provided to Gaza by Christian mega charity World Vision, were being utilized for terrorism.”  In 2012, the Tel Aviv based Shurat HaDin notified both the Australian government and World Vision that their aid money was being transferred to front charities of Palestinian terror groups in Gaza.  The Australian government and World Vision ignored the warning at the time. The Australian government, in the meantime, has announced that it is suspending aid money to World Vision pending the conclusion of the investigation into the transfer of funds from humanitarian to military purposes.
Last Thursday, Israel Defense Forces General Yoav (Poli) Mordechai, Coordinator of Government Activities in the Territories (COGAT), met with the World Vision top leadership and presented the findings and confessions of Mohammad El Halabi’s interrogation, which involved his exploitation of the organization’s funds that went to benefit Hamas’s military wing.  The World Vision representatives said that they renounce any support, direct or indirect, to Hamas, and intend to cooperate transparently and in coordination with COGAT, as required.
World Vision President and CEO Keith Jenkins announced that his charity is investigating the Israeli allegations, and carrying out “a full review, including an externally conducted forensic audit.” Jenkins explained that “Last year, our work in Jerusalem, West Bank, and Gaza directly benefitted more than 92,000 children; nearly 40,000 of these were in Gaza. These projects focus on children’s psychological needs as well as providing medical and other supplies to hospitals, food relief, and re-establishing agricultural livelihood. These projects have been visited and reviewed by officials from the German and Australian governments, by international donors, and our staff and leaders from other countries.”
One wonders about World Vision and Mr. Jenkins personal credibility when it has been clearly established that the Hamas regime in Gaza has used women and children as human shields during recent Gaza wars.  Moreover, the World Vision has obviously ignored the hate-filled incitement in the educational system employed by the Palestinians in Gaza that poisons children’s minds with intolerance and hate toward Israelis and Jews.  If Hamas can abuse their own children, it stands to reason that Hamas’ operatives, such as El Halabi, would also abuse the trust of a Christian evangelical group, by diverting humanitarian aid for terrorist uses.
One has to conclude in the case of El Halabi that it was either Hamas cleverly exploiting World Vision or perhaps World Vision knowingly and deliberately allowing its donors to be exploited.  On its website, World Vision declares that it is “an organization you can trust.”  How then, can one trust an organization that looked the other way when its employees embezzled millions of dollars from western donors over a period of years? On the same website World Vision promotes its “Child Protection.” If indeed, World Vision cared so much for children, why hasn’t it condemned Hamas’s use of children as human shields? Or it’s placing of rocket launchers in hospitals and schools, thus endangering Palestinian children? And one should ask whether Jewish children in Israel do not deserve the same protection as Arab Muslim children in Gaza? The rocket launchers used by Hamas in schools and hospitals target Israeli schools and kindergardens with the intent to kill children.
Funding Islamic terrorists directly or indirectly to improve their potential to kill Jews is not exactly Christian charity.  Twentieth Century philosopher Karl Popper, in his book An Open Society and its Enemies wrote: “Unlimited tolerance must lead to the disappearance of tolerance. If we extend unlimited tolerance even to those who are intolerant, if we are not prepared to defend a tolerant society against the onslaught of the intolerant, then the tolerant will be destroyed, and tolerance with them…We should therefore claim, in the name of tolerance, the right not to tolerate the intolerant.”  World Vision funding and defense of its intolerant and irrational Hamas operatives is destructive to tolerant societies and tolerance itself.


The Hour Is Late - By Stephen Meehan -
It is 0'Dark Thirty, and we have just slipped into this undisclosed airbase within the enemy's territory, under the cover of darkness, with our jumbo jet's exterior lights turned off to try to elude the bad guy's detection.  This airfield in Afghanistan is a beehive of activity, as is usual, when we fly in to drop off needed hardware   and supplies. The early morning hours and the blackness of night makes no difference to the combatants waging the war, nor to those engaged in fighting off their advances.
F-16s go thundering down the runway, with a deafening roar of their engines ripping open the quietness of the still air, while their afterburners cut a swath of bright light through the thick dark of the early morning. Unmanned drones are taking off and landing repeatedly during our three to four hours on the ground, in their attempts to pinpoint the position of the extremists out in the surrounding mountainous terrain.
Helicopters are constantly on the move, coming in and going away from the base, flying personnel and equipment to remote locations. Aerostats are tethered 1500 feet above the airfield, collecting data, using cameras and sensors, to feed information back to the base about the local weather and unusual activity being sensed in the surrounding region. Even the base's anti-rocket and mortar defenses are continuously in a state      of readiness to shoot down anything that poses a threat to the base and its inhabitants.
But in spite of all the hardware that is on this base to fight the bad guys, and all the efforts of those involved, all the training that has gone on, all the sorties being flown, and all the money being spent to try to thwart the enemy's advances-I'm left wondering after departing these bases whether or not we are making any difference at all there or even globally to stem the onrushing tide of terror and violence. Are we even making a dent? Are we slowing down the enemy and his encroachments?

Prophecy Update End Time Headlines 8/23/16

"She can kill with a smile, she can wound with her eyes; She can ruin your faith with her casual lies; And she only reveals what she wants you to see; She hides like a child but she's always a woman to me." ~Billy Joel  "She's Always a Woman to Me"
In the beginning, God created the heavens and the earth and all therein.  He made man in His own image, and then made a help-mate for Adam, and he named Woman, since she was taken from his own flesh and bone.  We know that according to Scripture that Satan came to Eve in the Garden in the form of a serpent.  And after their subsequent betrayal, rebellion and murder (the day they ate thereof they would die), we see that God then pronounces curses on the Serpent, the Woman, the Man, and the ground.  In Genesis 3:20, we see that Adam had named her Eve, since she was the mother of all who would eventually come henceforth from the human race.  We see that the dominant theme in the cursing process between the three parties had to do with offspring and child birth;
To the serpent, enmity would be between his seed and her seed.  And a 'Seed' would come which would crush his head, and he would bruise His heel.
To the woman, there would be pain and sorrow in childbirth. I imagine that at that particular point, she had not yet ever felt pain, but the very idea of it didn't sound good.
And it is at this point, Satan begins actively plotting against the "Seed" of Woman.  First, he influences Cain to kill Abel. (Gen. 4:1-15)  He then devotes the next 1,600 years or so, attempting to corrupt the genetic blood-line of mankind, by intermingling his fallen angels with human women to the point that only Noah and his family remain untainted. (Gen. 6:1-10)  God then wipes out the earth by the Great Flood and preserves only Noah and family to repopulate the earth once the waters subside.  Now, consider the math on this.  It is estimated that from Adam and Eve until the Flood was around 1,656 years and the population at the high end reached seven billion, and at the low end, two billion.


What The Media Is Not Telling You About The Demon Possessed Man In Florida Who Murdered A Man And Cannibalized His Face

By Theodore Shoebat A few days ago a man in Florida murdered a woman and her husband, and then cannibalized the husband’s face. It took several officers and a police dog to remove him from the victim. He growled like an animal at the crime scene, and then when he was in the hospital he […]

Why is support waning among yonger evangelicals?

When I came to faith in Jesus as a 16-year- old, Jewish, heroin-shooting, LSD- using, hippie rock drummer, my dad was thrilled to see the change in my life, since I was immediately delivered from drugs.
“But,” he said, “we’re Jews, and Jews don’t
believe in Jesus.”
He then introduced me to the local rabbi, who quickly befriended me and gave me a book to read documenting the history of anti-Semitism in the Church. 

The quotes from the lips of Christian leaders were terrible and the accounts of anti-Semitic actions were shocking, but the Lord’s work in my life was so wonderful and the Word of God so real in my life that I really wasn’t fazed by what I read. 

Plus, the church where I came to faith had a great love for Israel and recognized the Jews as the Chosen People. It was clear to them from the Scriptures, and it seemed as if the Spirit put this love for Israel into their hearts. 

For the last 45 years, as I have traveled throughout the United States and around the world, I have encountered countless thousands of believers who share this same heart for Israel, some of them living in rural areas of India or Africa. Yet even there, in these remote locations, this same message of solidarity with the Jewish People touched their hearts in a deep and profound way. 

Here in America, evangelical Christians have proven to be Israel’s best friends—their most solid and unwavering allies—to the point that even the Israeli Knesset recognizes them. 

But things are changing with the younger generation of evangelical Christians. 

Many of them do not share this same heart for Israel, and some are so solidly pro-Palestinian that they have become anti-Israel. 

How do we explain this shift? 

Here are some of the factors.
1. The older generation was much more aware of the miracle of Israel, as the modern nation was birthed out of the ashes of the Holocaust and supernaturally preserved by the Lord.
In its infancy, in 1948, Israel survived against all odds, and then the old city of Jerusalem was returned to Jewish hands through the amazing events of the Six-Day War in 1967. 

There was no denying that the rebirth of Israel was a divine act. 

The younger generation doesn’t see things this way. Israel has been here a long time now, and the Holocaust is even more distant. And Israel’s existence doesn’t seem that miraculous to many younger believers.
2. The younger generation of believers is less biblically literate.
Because of this, it is not as apparent to them that God’s Word promised Israel’s scattering and regathering, which is another reason that they will not recognize the miraculous hand of the Lord in the existence of the modern State of Israel.
3. The younger generation of evangelicals is more relational than theological.
This, of course, can be good or bad. 

On the positive side, these evangelicals get to know Palestinians as well as Israelis, and that means they want to see equality and justice for all their friends. So, when they see Palestinians treated unfairly —especially when it is their own peers—they will naturally side with the perceived victims. 

On the negative side, they can lose sight of what God is doing in the midst of human imperfection, causing them to lose sight of the larger divine purposes.
4. The younger generation is more focused on the micro-narrative, because of which they miss the macro-narrative.
To give an example from the broader culture, a young person might think like this: “Billy came out as gay, and he’s a really nice guy. But he gets picked on by the other boys, who call him a sissy (and worse). Well, Billy is going out with another boy named Bob. Why is it wrong for them to get married?” 

So, this sincere young person doesn’t look at the larger meaning of marriage and doesn’t look at what God’s Word says about marriage and sexuality. Instead, he looks at Billy and Bob and says, “Why not?” 

In the same way, young people might see a wall in Bethlehem and say, “It’s not fair that the wall is there. It divides families and makes life very hard for the Palestinians living there.” 

What they fail to realize is that the wall is there to keep Palestinian murderers out, and so they lose sight of the larger narrative because they focus on the smaller narrative.
5. The younger generation has been heavily influenced by years of biased media reporting and anti-Israel sentiments on university campuses.
The secular media often portrays Israel as the evil Goliath attacking poor little David (the Palestinians), while many campuses are marked by a growing, even virulent anti-Zionism (and even outright anti- Semitism). 

Without outside help, they will have a hard time recognizing this slanted, biased reporting and lecturing—it’s often found on social media as well— and this also contributes to their lack of support for Israel.
6. The theology of preterism is rising in some circles teaching God judged Israel forever in 70 A.D. and that no national promises remain for the Jewish People as a nation.
While not widespread, this error is spreading with disastrous implications for the theology of these young people. 

That’s the bad news. 

The good news is that there is a strong, pro- Israel prayer movement among young evangelicals, and that as younger Christians are visiting Israel for themselves, their hearts are changing. 

Along with this, to the extent these young people see how Israel itself is threatened by radical Islam, they can have sympathy for Israel as well.

  Breaking Updates For August 22, 2016     
When God Left The Building DVD
Though the vast majority (78%) of Americans identify themselves as Christians, they have largely stopped attending church. LESS THAN 20% of the population now makes it to church in a typical week. Some 4000 churches are closing every year and half of all churches in the US did not add any new members to their ranks in the last two years.. it's a major and unprecedented social upheaval.
Mock Human Sacrifice Was Just Conducted At CERN
Have you seen the video of the "mock human sacrifice" that was conducted right outside the entrance of CERN? A spokeswoman for the European Organization for Nuclear Research (more commonly known as CERN) has told the public that this ritual happened without their permission and that they are looking into the matter. If this "occult ritual" was indeed some kind of "sick joke", what was the motivation?
Is Drone Swarm Technology (Locust) A Harbinger Of Revelation 9?
Drone swarms are about to change the face of modern warfare and some prophecy watchers find both the technology and name of the US Naval program behind it perhaps more than coincidence. The US navy recently demonstrated its Low-Cost UAV Swarming Technology (LOCUST) program by putting 30 drones flying together in perfect formation.

As The 70th Anniversary Of Regathered Israel Approaches, Will It Be A Time Of Prophetic Fulfillment?

New post on Now The End Begins

As The 70th Anniversary Of Regathered Israel Approaches, Will It Be A Time Of Prophetic Fulfillment?

by Tricky Dicky.

Jeremiah calls it the time of Jacob's trouble. He calls it that because it has nothing to do with the Church of Jesus Christ, it is the final judgment on Israel.

"For thus saith the LORD, That after seventy years be accomplished at Babylon I will visit you, and perform my good word toward you, in causing you to return to this place."Jeremiah 29:10 (KJV)
The prophet Daniel found himself and his people the Jews in Babylonian captivity. God had allowed the nation of Israel to be taken captive for their unfaithfulness. One day, while reading through the scrolls of the prophet Jeremiah, he had an amazing discovery. As it turns out, Jeremiah had already prophesied that this would take place for a 70 year period:
"In the first year of his reign I Daniel understood by books the number of the years, whereof the word of the LORD came to Jeremiah the prophet, that he would accomplish seventy years in the desolations of Jerusalem. And I set my face unto the Lord God, to seek by prayer and supplications, with fasting, and sackcloth, and ashes:" Daniel 9:2,3 (KJV)

Israel is God's timepiece for Bible prophecy. Tick, tock...

Daniel was so moved and shaken by his discovery that he immediately set out to seek the Lord his God, and plead for mercy on Israel and the Jewish people. In the midst of his amazing prayer, he was visited by the angel Gabriel who present him with another prophecy having to do with the number 70.
"Seventy weeks are determined upon thy people and upon thy holy city, to finish the transgression, and to make an end of sins, and to make reconciliation for iniquity, and to bring in everlasting righteousness, and to seal up the vision and prophecy, and to anoint the most Holy." Daniel 9:24 (KJV)
This prophecy dealt with 70 "weeks of years" which turns out to be 490 years by the Hebrew calendar. The first 69 weeks of that prophecy have already transpired, but the last week - the final 7 years - has yet to take place. This last week is commonly known as the Great Tribulation, but Jeremiah has another name for it. He calls it the time of Jacob's trouble. He calls it that because it has nothing to do with the Church of Jesus Christ, it is the final judgment on Israel.
"Alas! for that day is great, so that none is like it: it is even the time of Jacob's trouble; but he shall be saved out of it." Jeremiah 30:7 (KJV)
The prophecies of both Jeremiah and Daniel are crucial in unlocking the mysteries of the book of Revelation. In both cases, God worked things out with the number 70, which brings us to today's topic. Israel was officially regathered on May 14, 1948. On May 14, 2018, they will have been back in their own land for exactly 70 years.

Is God getting ready to move again?

No, I am not predicting any specific event will have on or around May 14, 2018. But what I am saying is that with how God has already moved with regards to Israel and the number 70, it is best to go into it with our spiritual eyes and ears wide open. The anniversary of Israel being regathered for 70 years may be a small thing in the eyes of the world, but God is the God of the small things.
"For who hath despised the day of small things? for they shall rejoice, and shall see the plummet in the hand of Zerubbabel with those seven; they are the eyes of the LORD, which run to and fro through the whole earth." Zechariah 4:10 (KJV)
The Church will not be here for the time of Jacob's trouble, Israel will be in the spotlight. The Rapture takes us out before all that. But how fitting would it be for God to have a major move of prophecy on the 70th anniversary of the miracle of the fulfillment of the regathering of the Jews? Israel being back in the land was fulfillment of Bible prophecy.
"Now learn a parable of the fig tree; When his branch is yet tender, and putteth forth leaves, ye know that summer is nigh: So likewise ye, when ye shall see all these things, know that it is near, even at the doors." Matthew 24:32,33 (KJV)
Israel is God's timepiece for Bible prophecy. Tick, tock...
Are you ready for what comes next?

As Palestinians Launch Rocket That Hits Sderot, Israel Responds With Tanks And Jet Fighters


Palestinian militants in the Gaza Strip launched a rocket that landed in the Israeli border town of Sderot on Sunday and Israeli aircraft and tanks responded by shelling the Gaza town of Beit Hanoun, the army and police said.

The rocket caused no injuries or damage in Sderot, where it landed in a residential area, police said. An Israeli shell damaged a Beit Hanoun water tower and there were no casualties, local residents said.
The Israeli army said aircraft and tanks had targeted two Hamas posts belonging to Islamist Hamas militants.
Hamas controls the Gaza Strip and has observed a de-facto ceasefire with Israel since a 2014 war but some small armed cells of Jihadist Salafis have defied the agreement and have continued to occasionally launch rockets at Israel.
Rocket launched from Gaza exploded in Sderot (19K city pop). 14 rockets have been fired into Israel in 2016. RT

More than 2,100 Palestinians, mostly civilians, were killed during the 2014 Gaza conflict. Sixty-seven Israeli soldiers and six civilians in Israel were killed by rockets and attacks by Hamas and other militant groups.
Despite the ceasefire, Hamas has vowed to continue to dig tunnels intended to infiltrate Israel, and while Hamas leaders stress they do not seek an imminent war, they see tunnels as a strategic weapon in any future armed confrontation. source

Rocket sirens sounded in Sderot and nearby communities on the Gaza border, at 2:25 P.M. Minutes later rocket debris was found in a street in Sderot.

Yaron Shadadi, a Sderot resident whose home suffered a direct hit in 2012, told Haaretz that he and his family were at home when the rocket was fired and ran to the shelter in their home when they heard the sirens. They then heard a dull thud, he said, and thought it was from an explosion at some distance away, but they then discovered that it had fallen near a neighbor's home and had apparently not exploded.

Police called on the public to stay away of the site where the rocket fell.

Shmaryahu Nagar, who also lives very near the site where the rocket fell, told Haaretz the rocket fell next to the home of a young couple who were not home at the time. Nagar was at home with his son and the son alerted him to the rocket warning. The two ran to their secure room, he said, and then "there was a kind of noise of a strange screech and a boom."
Last month, a rocket fired from Gaza hit an early childhood development center in Sderot. Nearby buildings were also damaged, but no casualties were reported.
The Israel Air Force at the time hit what the Israeli army said were four Hamas targets in southern and central Gaza. source
