Now, according to this article in the Australian, donors to World Vision have financed a football field that is going to be dedicated to another Fatah mass murderer - Red faces over Fatah field *
CHARITY group World Vision Australia has been embarrassed by a plan by Palestinian authorities to name a sporting complex containing an Australian-funded soccer field in the West Bank after a former militant PLO leader.
World Vision naturally denies playing a part in the choice of name for the sporting complex but a spokeswoman gives it a tick by saying that "the aim of the soccer field is to involve young people in this region of the West Bank, who are frequently dealing with psychological trauma and stress, in soccer training and competition, and in sport generally, as a positive community activity . . . There is no other facility like it."
Sure thing but why not condemn publicly the attachment of your project to a beastly murderer instead of justifying what you've done by claiming you're a dogooder. Similar soccer fields have been used in the past for training terrorists and if the hosts chose to dedicate this one a cold blooded killer it would be better to distance yourself from the whole thing and not allow yourself to be mired in the hypocrisy and lies of Palestinian hatred.
