A time for giving

It's Advent and snow is falling outside my window - time to start pondering which charities to support.

As I believe I may have mentioned on this site, some charities spend their donors' cash demonizing Israel. Others, it seems, go a step further...

And note the treatment of Marwan Barghouti, who is 'serving five life sentences in an Israeli prison' for reasons which we needn't trouble ourselves with. Suffice it to say that in his wife's opinion he is 'a leader for his people and not a terrorist'.

The BBC reported on Saturday:-

'He is serving five life terms in an Israeli jail for the killing of four Israelis and a Greek monk.'

Today it is:-

'He was convicted in 2004 of involvement in a number of attacks on Israeli civilians.'

Has somebody been having a quiet word?
