Belgian Aid Funds to Palestinians May Be Diverted to Terrorists

% of readers think this story is Fact. Add your two cents.

Hat tip Joods Actueel

The Belgian government is investigating reports that money given to help the Palestinian people has been diverted into terrorist organizations.

(I am shocked and dismayed.)

The below article from yesterday’s Joods Actueel, a Jewish-Belgian site, is translated from Dutch by Fousesquawk.

Belgium investigates channeling of development money to Palestinian terrorists

June 2, 2021

Minister for Development Cooperation, Meryame Kitir confirmed in the Parliament that an investigation is underway into Belgian developmental aid that possibly is channeled to the financing of terrorist activities of the Popular Front for the Liberation of Palestine.

She answered a question from N-VA Parliament Member Kathleen Depoorter: “This matter is very serious, and cannot be taken lightly. I am happy that the matter is being investigated, but also expect quick answers and appropriate steps by the minister,”

A report accuses seven Palestinian organizations of channeling developmental money from Western European donors, intended for the local people, to the Popular Front for the Liberation of Palestine (PFLP), a terrorist organization according to the European Union.

Among these suspected organizations are also found partners of Belgian developmental cooperation such as Health Work Committees (HWC), but also the organization, Defense for Children International Palestine (DCIP), which Belgium wanted to give speaking time within the United Nations Security Council.

3.76 million euro support improperly used

Minister Kitir confirms that the concerned organizations in the past 5 years, through their Belgian partners, received up to 3.70 million euros of which 660,000 euros through Viva Salud, 1.8 million euros through Oxfam, and 1.3 million euros through Broederlijk Delen (Brotherly Sharing). According to the Israelis, our support is improperly used. They reportedly submitted a report to our government, after which, the minister opened an investigation.

Payments suspended in Netherlands, Belgian government remains silent

Parliament Member Kathleen DePoorter points out that these reports in the Netherlands caused the necessary commotion in the government, and the payments were suspended. “I note that our government, while the allegations are serious, remains much quieter. I have asked the minister, nonetheless, to look into these reports and that she bring her own investigation into the misuse to the Parliament. Everyone is innocent until the opposite is proven and these Palestinian organizations deserve a fair chance, but we expect appropriate measures if the facts are proven.”
