I’m disgusted. Obama takes most of Hamas off the terrorism list so they can get Western funding, but at least Canada sees the danger and ended all funding to the United Nations Relief and Works Agency for Palestine Refugees in the Near East (UNWRA). The money simply goes straight into the Palestinian Authority’s (PA) general treasury, where it might be used for humanitarian projects or might be used to arm and train terrorists
As America continues to drop the ball as fighter for freedom and democracy, it is reassuring to see others pick up the slack. America has abdicated its divine role as the world’s leading force for good and right under Obama’s rule, and instead has aligned the country with the dark and evil axis.
We do not lead the way, and it is a dark time for proud Americans — and worse yet for those across the globe who look to America as a beacon, a light unto the nations.
But Canada has taken up the slack under the brave stewardship of Stephen Harper. While Obama is busy removing Hamas from the terror list so that the jihad can be better funded, Harper is cutting off the snake.“Canada has just become the first Western government to cut off aid to UNRWA, the UN agency that runs Palestinian “refugee” camps and does so much to abuse and radicalize Palestinians and prevent any resolution of the conflict.”
“Although UNWRA has long been a biased player in the Arab-Israeli conflict, it is seldom criticized for its incitement of anti-Israeli hatred and violence by
Palestinians. It has funded textbooks that deny the right of Israel to exist and
paid teachers who call on Palestinian children to push the Jewish state into the sea. It harbours radical Islamists and anti-Semites on its payroll and was even caught in 2004 using its own ambulances to ferry terrorists away from Israeli sites they had just attacked.”
US Terror Blacklist Whitewashes Hamas, Enables Funding (IsraelNN.com) The United States Treasury has taken all but one member of Hamas off the international list of terrorists, thus enablingfunds from the European Union to enter Hamas-controlled Gaza.
Since last fall, the federal Conservative government has been withdrawing taxpayer funding from non-governmental organizations (NGOs) that use their grants to take sides against Israel in the Middle East conflict. Now comes word that last week, Ottawa told the United Nations it would no longer fund the world body’s Palestinian refugee agency. From now on, Canadian aid to Palestinians will be directed to specific projects. We will no longer give lump-sum aid to the United Nations Relief and Works Agency for Palestine Refugees in the Near East (UNWRA), since most of that money simply goes straight into the Palestinian Authority’s (PA) general treasury, where it might be used for humanitarian projects or might be used to arm and train terrorists.
This is a bold move for Ottawa, which is the first Western government to cut off funding for UNWRA.
Although UNWRA has long been a biased player in the Arab-Israeli conflict, it is seldom criticized for its incitement of anti-Israeli hatred and violence by Palestinians. It has funded textbooks that deny the right of Israel to exist and paid teachers who call on Palestinian children to push the Jewish state into the sea. It harbours radical Islamists and anti-Semites on its payroll and was even caught in 2004 using its own ambulances to ferry terrorists away from Israeli sites they had just attacked.
But most politicians and journalists consider UNWRA to be sacrosanct. Too many swallow whole the agency’s assurances that it is not involved in promoting terrorism and anti-Israeli sentiments in the West Bank and Gaza. Criticism of it always elicits howls that UNWRA’s mission is only to care for four million refugees in 59 camps and promote peace and understanding in the region.
So rather than get dragged into a public relations war with the UN and its acolytes, last week, before Prime Minister Stephen Harper shuffled his Cabinet, then-Treasury Board President Vic Toews informed UNWRA and the PA that from now on, Canadian aid would be earmarked to specific projects, chosen by Ottawa, such as food aid.
Ottawa also announced it would defund Alternatives, a Montreal NGO that two summers ago organized an education camp in Quebec, welcoming “500 motivated militants” from Lebanon, Iraq, “Palestine” and Venezuela.
International Development Minister Bev Oda withdrew $7-million in tax dollars, too, from KAIROS, an “ecumenical partnership” that had adopted a vehemently anti-Israel policy and been at the forefront of boycotts against the importation of Israeli goods and visits by Israeli professors.
For too long, Ottawa has subsidized NGOs that claim to be after peace, but that in truth seek to demonize Israel. It’s good the Conservatives are seeking to halt these attacks.
The United States Treasury has taken all but one member of Hamas off the international list of terrorists, thus enabling funds from the European Union to enter Hamas-controlled Gaza.
It is an open secret that large sums of money from the EU flow into Gaza in the guise of humanitarian aid and salaries for officials, but are actually funneled into the coffers of Hamas, which controls Gaza with an iron grip. This method of transferring funds into terrorists’ hands could have been blocked by an international lawsuit, but according to journalist Avi Tarango, the United States Treasury has made this impossible by removing all but one Hamas man – Deputy Chairman of the Political Bureau, Musa Abu Marzouk – from the list of international terrorists.The updated terrorist list, published last week, takes up 443 pages. However, according to Tarango, who went over the list, none of the tens of thousands of people who form Hamas is mentioned – other than Abu Marzuk, who resides in Damascus. The terrorist list is meant for distribution in the world banking system, where the transfer of funds to anyone on the list is prohibited.
Cleared for Funding
Abu Marzouk is listed as having been born in Gaza on February 9, 1951, and as bearing an Egyptian passport with the number 92/664. “While branches of Hamas appear in the list under different names, such as ‘The Students of Ayash,’ ‘The Muslim Brotherhood in Gaza,’ ‘The Iz A-Din El-Kassam Battalions,’ the rest of Hamas’s men do not appear on the list at all,” Tarango said.
“Musa Abu-Marzouk’s presence on the list means that whoever tries to transfer money to him personally will be rejected by the world banking system and be accused of funding terrorism, but the transfer of funds to any other Hamas man will not arouse suspicion,” he explained.
According to published reports and other sources, the journalist said, the EU sends millions of Euros every month to cover the salaries of 77,000 employees of the Palestinian Authority and about 70,000 recipients of welfare aid in Gaza.
“EU laws define Hamas as a terror organization and therefore the EU people need to verify on a name-by-name basis that none of the people receiving salaries and support is a terrorist,” Tarango said. “This is done by the EU’s cash transfer mechanism, PEGASE, which verifies that none of the recipients of salaries are members of Hamas’s police force or activists of the military wing of Hamas, by comparing the names as received from the PA treasury department with the list of international terror activists. However, since the newly-updated list contains no Hamas officials except for Marzouk, the European check will find nothing and the funds for Gaza salaries will be transferred in whole to the Gaza banks.”
Here is what Hamas believes:
Hamas was created to annihilate the Jews. It is their charter, the Hamas Charter
“Israel will exist and will continue to exist until Islam will obliterate it, just as it obliterated others before it.” (The
Martyr, Imam Hassan al-Banna, of blessed memory).“The Islamic Resistance Movement believes that
the land of Palestine is an Islamic Waqf consecrated for future Muslim generations until Judgement Day. It, or any part
of it, should not be squandered: it, or any part of it, should not be given up. ““There is no solution for the Palestinian
question except through Jihad. Initiatives, proposals and international conferences are all a waste of time and vain
endeavors.”“After Palestine, the Zionists aspire to expand
from the Nile to the Euphrates. When they will have digested the region they overtook, they will aspire to further
expansion, and so on. Their plan is embodied in the “Protocols of the Elders of Zion”, and their present conduct is the
best proof of what we are saying.”
In a Sunday report aired on Germany’s public broadcaster WDR, Brinkmann said he fears Germany is becoming “too foreign” and that Sharia law will be introduced in the country. “However, there are no, or very few, politicians who take this seriously,” Brinkmann said.
Geert Wilders does, that’s why he is in the dock. So is Philip DeWinter, from Vlaams Belang. The cowards, the sheeple and the Socialist disinformation machine are in overdrive to serve their Mohammedan masters….
Somehow, the promise that communal buildings like synagogues and schools would be exempt from the ‘freeze’ did not bother the Netanyahu – Barak government. And if the ‘religious parties’ are going to object to the wanton destruction of a synagogue, I haven’t heard it yet.
A resident of Nachliel told Arutz Sheva that the synagogue was completed a month before the ‘freeze’ went into effect.
In an interview with Arutz 7, a resident of Nachliel said that the synagogue demolished Tuesday by police, soldiers, and Civil Authority workers, had been built long before the building freeze in Judea and Samaria went into effect. The structure, which had been in use daily, sustained tens of thousands of shekels worth of damage. “This was a shameful destruction,” he said. “All of the holy books are strewn about the floor, as are the mezuzot. We intend to begin rebuilding today,” said Avi Cohen, a Nachliel resident. Cohen said that the building had been completed on 11 Cheshvan (October 29).
Cohen said that he begged with authorities to spare the building, but to no avail – and that after much pleading they let him remove the Torah scroll from the building. “It is unbelievable that they would destroy a synagogue without thinking twice, but they would not dare to touch a mosque,” he said.
