World Vision needs to quit anti-Israel battlefield

World Vision, the Christian charity, has blurred vision when it comes to the Jewish state. Its disgraceful propaganda against Israel is shameful in itself and marks a betrayal of the ideals it claims to uphold

    It is so hard to find a worthy charity if you are inclined to donate money etc. It is good these kinds of articles get out so the information is out there.

      You do more good giving cash to a rubby pushing a shopping cart full of empties than donating to Oxfam, UNICEF or World Vision. You won’t get a tax receipt but at least your money is going to someone who needs it.

        No plan is perfect. You just have to do the best you can and hope to hell you’ve made the right decision.

        I tend to donate cash only and to a charity I have vetted personally with information like in the article above. If you do a credit card your personal info is out there somewhere else. Also if you donate online to a lot of the big charities they keep coming after you.

    Dalton McGuinty while he was the Ontario Premier used to actively promote them without saying his daughter was in a management position with them.

    McGuinty’s endorsement was enough for me not to support them, but this puts the nail in the coffin.

      Don’t give your money to them

    This comment on the original article page said it best;

    Anti-Zionism wishes to turn the clock back to a time when the Jewish people did not have its own state, to when it lived at the mercy of Christian and Muslim overlords, to when they could be purged in pogroms at will. Anti-Zionism wishes to disenfranchise the Jews, to return them to exile and deny their fundamental right to self-determination, which is by definition anti-Semitic, since it only targets the Jews.

    You know, we get it. We really do. The world hates us Jews and we’d really like nothing better than to live on our own and not have anything to do with the people who hate us. That was one of the reasons in the aftermath of the Holocaust that the State of Israel was founded, to provide a safe haven for the Jewish people and guarantee that no further such attempt to eradicate its existence would come about. So we were granted a thin sliver of land on the eastern end of the Mediterranean Sea, a desert in all but name, devoid of modern technology, agriculture, infrastructure. We turned it into an oasis. Yes, we get it. We were given a tiny state to call our own, but now even that they want to take away.

    What do the anti-Zionists want from us? To turn us to the Arabs and Muslims, who’d like to butcher every last one of us, to return us to living at other peoples’ mercy again. Well, it won’t happen. Never again was the cry after the horrors of the Holocaust and no State of Israel is going to disappear to leave the Jewish people stranded again, victim to the predations of Muslims and Christians, who butchered us before in our thousands and millions and would do it again in a heartbeat, given the chance.

    Thanks for posting this BCF. I thought we were with World Vision and I went “Aww shit!” but I checked with my wife and we sponsor a 3rd world kid in central america through Save the Children”.

    I remember when we we first deciding to. They give you a choice of what part of the world you want to help.

    We said Africa? Screw that. They’ve had enough help and nothing ever improves.
    South east asia? Forget it. We have enough moving into our neighborhood.
    Here in canada? No way. The little bastards have enough. Not having a PlayStation doesn’t make you poor.

    We finally settled on central america.

    Rich Stearns is president of World Vision -US. Stearns is a good friend of Jim Wallis. Jim Wallis is a spiritual advisor to Obama. All I needed to know about the World View of World Vision.

    World Vision is dead to me.
