Israel has been careful so far not to blame World Vision itself, implying that the actions of Mohammad El Halabi were done without the knowledge of the organization.
But World Vision's statement about the incident reveals that it is not the most truthful organization:
World Vision subscribes to the humanitarian principles of impartiality and neutrality and therefore rejects any involvement in any political, military or terrorist activities and maintains its independence as a humanitarian aid agency committed to serving the poor, especially children.
it rejects any involvement in political activities?
World Vision has published a pamphlet that describes campaigns that can only be described as political.
They claim that they are not political, but their advocacy only goes in one direction:
Worse, they use the term "resistance" in their work, and they describe their partnership with undeniably political organizations like Breaking the Silence and ICAHD as "co-resistance":
Indeed, there are other reasons to blame World Vision besides its apparent shocking lack of oversight on how its donors' money is spent. But this statement alone, where they claim to be apolitical, is enough to prove that the organization is not telling the truth, today.
And once you know that they lie about their very goals, it is hard to believe them about anything.
By the way, Israel says that Halabi was recruited by Hamas in 2005. This means that he was working for the UNDP at the time.
