Hamas Infiltrated a Humanitarian Aid Organization, Stole Millions and Used It To Attack Israel

The Islamic terrorist organization Hamas, which the United States just funded through a $400 million cash payment to Iran, recently stole millions of dollars in humanitarian aid money and used it launch attacks on Israel. More from the Jerusalem Post

Hamas infiltrated a large international aid organization operating in Gaza and redirected tens of millions of dollars - 60 percent - of the organization's budget to its military wing, the Shin Bet (Israel Security Agency) announced on Thursday, following an investigation that lasted almost two months.

The World Vision organization, which operates in 100 countries and employs 46,000 people, fell victim to a complex, pre-planned Hamas takeover scheme, a senior Shin Bet source said, adding that Hamas's military wing stole 7.2 million dollars a year from the budget, aimed at food, humanitarian assistance, and aid programs for disabled children, and channeling the funds to weapons acquisitions, tunnel building, and other preparations for war with Israel.

Even when given humanitarian aid money legally Hamas often, if not always, uses it against Israel rather than helping the Palestinian people living in the Gaza Strip. The terrorist organization also uses human shields and launches missiles from school yards and hospitals.
