Les ministres des Affaires étrangères des Etats membres de l'Organisation de Coopération islamique ont convenu d'accorder aux ONG humanitaires le statut consultatif auprès de l'OCI. C’est ainsi que la 39e session du Conseil des ministres des Affaires étrangères tenue à Djibouti du 15 au 17 Novembre 2012, a approuvé les règles d'octroi du Statut consultatif aux ONG humanitaires ayant leur siège dans un Etat membre de l'OCI.   
 
A cette occasion, le Secrétaire Général de l'Organisation de Coopération Islamique, Pr. Ekmeleddine Ihsanoglu, a souligné le fait qu’il s’agit de la première fois dans les annales de l'OCI que les ONG se voient accorder ce statut, qui devrait a-t-il dit va combler l'écart important entre la coordination des activités des gouvernements et des organisations humanitaires dans les Etats membres. Les règles permettent aux organisations humanitaires non gouvernementales ayant leur siège dans un Etat membre de l'OCI de demander le statut consultatif auprès de celle-ci. Les ONG humanitaires doivent être officiellement enregistrées et accréditées pour entreprendre une activité précisée dans la demande de Statut consultatif. Les organisations humanitaires des minorités et des communautés musulmanes accréditées dans les États où ces minorités et communautés existent et oeuvrant en leur faveur peuvent également prétendre à ce Statut.

Les ONG humanitaires reconnues par l'OCI peuvent participer aux réunions portant sur leurs activités et fournir des consultations et des conseils dans le domaine humanitaire, afin de promouvoir les principes et objectifs de la Charte de l'OCI.

Le Secrétaire général adjoint de l'OCI pour les Affaires humanitaires, Monsieur Atta El-Manan Bakhit a déclaré à cette occasion que les ONG humanitaires qualifiées pourraient constituer un conseil et nommer un représentant auprès de l'OCI et tenir des réunions avant les Sommets de l'OCI, afin de présenter des recommandations aux dirigeants du monde musulman.

CARITAS INTERNATIONALIS RAPPORT ANNUEL 20111

Introduction | Une seule famille humaine, zéro pauvreté | Information financière (pdf) | Envoyer en pdf



 
Caritas Internationalis est une confédération mondiale de 164 organisations catholiques. Sous la tutelle du Saint-Siège, elle intervient dans les catastrophes humanitaires, promeut le développement humain intégral et mène des actions de plaidoyer contre la pauvreté et la violence.

Inspirée par la foi chrétienne et les valeurs de l'Évangile, Caritas travaille dans la plupart des pays du monde aux côtés des pauvres, des opprimés, des vulnérables et des exclus, indépendamment de leur race ou de leur religion. Elle promeut une société juste et fraternelle où chacun voit sa dignité respectée.

Selon la taille de la communauté catholique locale et les souhaits de la Conférence épiscopale, les Caritas nationales vont de petites entités à certaines des plus grandes organisations d'action sociale, de secours humanitaire et de développement, d'envergure internationale. Ensemble, ces organisations mobilisent plus d'un million d'employés et de bénévoles.

Caritas Internationalis a un Secrétariat général, dont les bureaux sont situés à Rome, au Vatican, et dont les fonctions consistent à coordonner les interventions de la Confédération dans les situations d'urgence humanitaire majeures, à appuyer les membres et à plaider en leur nom pour un monde meilleur, qui soit fondé sur la JUSTICE, la COMPASSION et la FRATERNITÉ. = C'est plutôt un contrôle total que nous voyons ainsi qu'une anarchie complète. Nous sommes loin de la Justice, de la compassion et de la fraternité qu'ils disent soutenir quand nous voyons toutes ces lois draconniennes qui prennent place dans tous les pays.  

Caritas Internationalis a aussi des délégations qui la représentent auprès des Nations Unies, à New York et à Genève. Les délégations de Caritas travaillent avec d'autres institutions internationales et organisations non gouvernementales et sont étroitement associées aux Missions permanentes du Saint-Siège. = Délégation qui transmettent les ordres aux différents partenaires.

Caritas Internationalis se compose de sept régions: l'Afrique, l'Asie, l'Europe, l'Amérique latine et la Caraïbe, le Moyen-Orient et l'Afrique du Nord, l'Amérique du Nord et l'Océanie. = En fait, elle est partout et contrôle tout avec ses divers partenaires qui se sont associés à cette grande Babylone la Grande. Lire Apoc. 17

CARITAS MEETING FINISHED IN ROME

May 19, 2012





A group photo of the representative council of Caritas Internationalis taken on 18 May in front of its head office in Rome.

As it has been made public, the revised statute and internal rules have been granted definite approval from Holy See on 2 May with an official decree by Cardinal Bertone.

It all started in 2004 when Holy Father JPII granted Canonical Legal Status to Caritas Internationalis. Since then, revision of the statute and internal rules have been a priority task for both Caritas and the secretariat of State. In 2011, general assembly of Caritas approved the revised text of the statute and internal rules and submitted it to the Holy See for approval "ad experimentum."

Then on 2 May, it was made public that with certain changes and additions, the Holy See finally granted definite approval for the statute and internal rules.

Now because of nature of additions and changes made between the last assembly to this approval, quite negative image has been created over the intention of the Holy See especially in the provision of Papal appointment of 3 members to the Executive Board, creation of support committee to Secretary General which will be appointed by Cor Unum and giving quite a many task to supervise Caritas activities by Cor Unum.

Though I am also quite surprised to know about these changes and felt that, to be honest, Caritas activities were now under control of Holy See, however, after I listened to the explanation on their intention for these changes made by an official from the secretariat of state during the representative council, I now am able to say with confidence that Holy See has good intention and supportive will to assist Caritas activities because it is essential action of the Church and also brought Caritas into Vatican. As a juridical entity in the system of the Holy See, Caritas Internationalis has to fulfill certain obligation to safeguard its own image and dignity and also of the Church.

With this definite approval, now Caritas Internationalis is able to act and speak for the Church with certain authority and execute its activities to represent and manifest the spirit of charity of Catholic Church. I hope and pray that Holy Spirit may guide this new way of being Caritas, especially newly created Executive board which will meet more than 4 times a year to make final decisions on the direction of activities of Caritas.

ROME SE PENCHE SUR CARITAS INTERNATIONALIS

Robert Sarah, président du Conseil pontifical Cor Unum, l'avait affirmé : « L'Église n'est ni une ONG ni une société philanthropique. Je répondrais à Rober Sarah que non l'Église n'est pas seulement une ONG mais tout un système secret qui contrôle tous les paliers gouvernements à commencer par les Nations Unies, les religions, le système hospitalier, le système scolaire et les universités, l'Armée, les forces de polices et les groupes paramilitaires, le système bancaire et les innombrables ONG qui y sont rattachées. C'est ainsi que s'accomplit la prophétie de Babylone la Grande concernant ce dernier Empire Romain de la fin des temps que nous retrouvons dans Apocalypse 17-18.

L'article nous mentionne qu'il emploie 440 000 salariés et 625 000 bénévoles, les 165 Caritas, fédérées à Rome . C'est énorme. Savent-ils tous, ces gens qui ils servent vraiment et quel est le réel agenda qui se cache derrière cette vaste organisation criminelle? 625 000 bénévoles ou esclaves qui croient à tous ces mensonges d'un monde meilleur?


La Secrétairerie d'État s'oppose au renouvellement du mandat de Lesley-Anne Knight à la tête de Caritas Internationalis, et insiste sur l'identité catholique de l'organisation caritative

Lors de sa mission en Haïti, mi-janvier, le cardinal guinéen Robert Sarah, président du Conseil pontifical Cor Unum, l'avait affirmé : « L'Église n'est ni une ONG ni une société philanthropique. Notre action doit être l'expression concrète de l'évangélisation. » Objet de sa préoccupation : Caritas Internationalis (CI).

Soutenant 24 millions de personnes dans le monde, employant 440 000 salariés et 625 000 bénévoles, les 165 Caritas, fédérées à Rome par CI, s'appuient chaque année sur des ressources, privées et publiques, de 5,5 milliards de dollars. Les chiffres disent l'importance de la mission. Mais Rome demande à Caritas Internationalis de s'interroger sur le sens de cette mission.

Le 15 février, le Secrétaire d'État, le cardinal Tarcisio Bertone, a écrit aux conférences épiscopales, chacune étant responsable de « sa » propre Caritas locale, pour leur faire part de l'opposition du Saint-Siège au renouvellement du mandat de Lesley-Anne Knight, secrétaire générale de CI, lors de l'assemblée générale prévue en mai prochain.

«Incompréhension» du cardinal Maradiaga

Si la décision est inédite dans l'histoire de CI, elle est fondée en droit. Le statut canonique de Caritas Internationalis, promulgué par Jean-Paul II le 16 septembre 2004, prévoit cette possibilité, et confie à Cor Unum le suivi de CI. Il affirme également le lien entre CI et la Secrétairerie d'État matière de diplomatie multilatérale.

Dans cette lettre, révélée le 26 février par l'hebdomadaire catholique britannique The Tablet , le cardinal Bertone précise : « Durant les quatre années à venir, une attention particulière devra être apportée à l'harmonisation de la dimension théologique de CI avec son rôle en tant qu'organisation internationale. » Le cardinal souhaite que les activités de plaidoyer menées par CI soient mieux coordonnées « en coopération étroite avec le Saint-Siège, spécifiquement compétent dans ce domaine ».

Rapidement, le cardinal Sarah a précisé que la personnalité de Lesley-Anne Knight (51 ans, britannique, vingt-cinq ans d'expérience en matière de développement international) n'était pas en cause. Et le cardinal Bertone prend acte des « résultats significatifs » et du « professionnalisme » de L.-A. Knight.

Au siège de CI, on reste prudent. L.-A. Knight ne s'est pas exprimée. Patrick Nicholson, son porte-parole, se veut serein : « Le travail se poursuit. Nous avons toujours coopéré avec le Saint-Siège, et les Caritas locales sont sous la responsabilité des conférences épiscopales. »


Rome souhaiterait une identité catholique mieux affirmée


En revanche, le cardinal Oscar Maradiaga, président de CI et archevêque de Tegucigalpa (Honduras) a demandé au cardinal Bertone de revenir sur sa décision. Et il a écrit aux 165 directeurs des Caritas locales pour leur faire part de son « incompréhension », réaffirmant son soutien à L.-A. Knight.

La réponse de Caritas Internationalis à Rome a pris la voix de Duncan McLaren, prédécesseur romain de L.-A. Knight de 1999 à 2007. Sur le site de la revue jésuite australienne Eureka Street , il affirme : « La confédération est scandalisée. Si le Saint-Siège a le droit statutaire de refuser un candidat, il n'est pas habilité à juger de la qualité de son travail. (…) Je n'ai aucun doute que le Christ est au coeur du travail réalisé par Caritas au nom de l'Église. »

Le contentieux touche le caractère hybride de CI, à la fois ONG et organisme d'Église. Elle doit ainsi rendre compte à Rome, mais aussi à ses millions de donateurs privés, aux États qui, localement, attribuent des subventions, sans oublier les conférences épiscopales. Reste que des voix autorisées se font entendre, à Rome, pour souhaiter une identité catholique mieux affirmée des services rendus par l'Église à la société : éducation, santé, solidarité.

MICHEL ROY A ÉTÉ ÉLU SECRÉTAIRE GÉNÉRAL DE CARITAS INTERNATIONALIS

Caritas Internationalis est sous le contrôle du Vatican et de l'Ordre de Malte. Le Pape Benoît XVI est lui-même un Chevalier de Malte qui ont mission d'exterminer tous les hérétiques, les chrétiens et les juifs. En s'infiltrant et en contrôlant toutes les sphères de la société, il est alors plus facile de faire avancer leur agenda luciférien. Ce sont des guerriers et conquérants au service du Pape Benoît XVI.

Caritas Internationalis est sous le contrôle des Chevaliers de Malte. Le Pape Benoît XVI est lui-même un Chevalier de Malte.

Avec cet article

Qu'est-ce qu'une association humanitaire catholique ? Rome se penche sur Caritas Internationalis « Sans nous, certains n'ont aucun moyen de s'en sortir » 28 février 2010 : les chrétiens de Vendée dans la tempête

Habitué des forums internationaux, Michel Roy va devoir s’imprégner des us et coutumes romains. L’actuel directeur du plaidoyer international au Secours catholique (France) a été élu ce 26 mai secrétaire général de Caritas Internationalis (CI) à Rome.

Ce militant résolu est aussi un catholique convaincu et un diplomate rigoureux. Ces trois qualités lui seront indispensables pour succéder à Lesley-Anne Knight, qui n’a pas été autorisée par le Saint-Siège à se représenter pour un nouveau mandat de quatre ans.
Marié, père de deux enfants, Michel Roy est au service du Secours catholique depuis 1981. « C’est aussi un engagement de foi », précise-t-il d’emblée. Et international. Depuis 1988, dans ses diverses fonctions, Michel Roy n’a cessé de sillonner la planète et les 165 Caritas qui la balisent pour plaider en faveur des plus pauvres.

« Les Caritas, incarnation de l’Eglise »  

Auprès des instances locales, régionales, nationales, internationales, il a tissé inlassablement des réseaux pour que « la voix du terrain rejoigne celle du Saint-Siège pour la défense de la dignité humaine ». À Radio Vatican, la veille de son élection, il déclarait : « Les Caritas forment un réseau efficace, incarnation de l’Église et du message évangélique auprès des plus pauvres. »

À la tête d’une petite équipe, Michel Roy sera en lien permanent avec le cardinal hondurien Oscar Maradiaga, réélu mardi 24 mai à la présidence de Caritas Internationalis.

Les deux hommes devront reconstruire une relation confiante avec Rome, qui a réitéré lors de cette assemblée générale le désir de voir l’association affirmer son caractère propre. « Je souhaite fluidifier cette relation », affirme Michel Roy, qui tient à rendre hommage à l’action de celle qui l’a précédé.

Refonder un lien constant avec Rome

En même temps, le nouveau secrétaire général veut « insister sur les dynamiques participatives : les sept Caritas régionales doivent être en lien constant avec CI, à Rome ». Le tout dans un axe clair : « Poursuivre l’application du plan d’action 2007, renouvelé jusqu’en 2015. »

Le challenger de Michel Roy était l’Américain d’origine tchèque Karel Zelenka, représentant de Catholic Relief Service (CRS, agence de développement de l’épiscopat américain) en Afrique du Sud.

C’est que, surpris, voire choqués, par le refus de Rome de renouveler le mandat de Lesley-Anne Knight, les candidats ne se sont pas bousculés au portillon pour venir s’installer dans les imposants bâtiments du Palazzo San Callisto, dans le quartier du Trastevere, à Rome. C’est justement sur la nature du statut de Caritas Internationalis et ses relations avec le Saint-Siège que va porter le débat, dans les mois à venir.

AMERICA - BAOBAB IS OPERATIONAL, A NETWORK THAT CONNECTS ALL MEMBERS OF CARITAS IN THE WORLD



Bogota (Agenzia Fides) - The President of Caritas Internationalis, Cardinal Oscar Rodriguez Maradiaga, has launched a new internal platform on the web called "Caritas Baobab", through which Caritas members from around the world will be able to connect to each other and to work together. In fact, this network will link the staff of more than 160 countries, allowing the communication system of Caritas to advance and its ability to respond quickly to natural disasters and other emergencies, to coordinate efforts and share resources. In the note sent to Fides Agency by CELAM (Council of Episcopal Conferences of Latin America), one reads what Cardinal Rodríguez said on the initiative: "Caritas Baobab will provide cutting edge technology to help better serve the poor. The higher the number of people we can mobilize for any emergency, the more opportunities we will have to get a concrete answer. In this modern world, to get fast and accurate information is a key factor for the success in our work. " The Caritas Baobab system, or simply "Baobab", was developed in collaboration with Caritas Germany. As a pilot project,it has been used to date in response to emergencies, training, communication with the media and the regional communication. Now it will be open to all members of the staff of Caritas, in coordination with the national or regional offices of Caritas. (CE) (Agenzia Fides 20/09/2012)

REVELATIONS IN BOSTON ARCHIDIOCESE, CARITAS BOARD MEMBERS SUPPORT PRO-ABORTION POLITICIANS, CATHOLIC-OXNED FACILITIES LIST ABORTION AMONG ITS SERVICES

By Christian Newswire
Jun 18, 2009 - 4:57:36 PM


WASHINGTON, D.C. -- On June 17, the Catholic Action League of Massachusetts revealed that five of the nine members of scandal-ridden Caritas Christi's Board of Governors are major contributors to pro- abortion politicians.

Caritas Christi, a network of Catholic healthcare facilities and hospitals, is affiliated with the Archdiocese of Boston and is answerable to Cardinal Sean O'Malley. The Archdiocese has been under intense scrutiny since early February regarding a joint venture between Caritas and Centene Corporation. The venture will make financially strapped Caritas eligible for Commonwealth Care funding from the state of Massachusetts.

"The Archdiocese of Boston has another scandal on its hands. They are in danger of participating in state- sponsored abortion," said Shaun Kenney, executive director of American Life League. "It's time Cardinal O'Malley put a stop to this travesty."

The venture, CeltiCare, of which Caritas has a 49 percent interest, has listed abortion and family planning "services" among the benefits included in its healthcare coverage.
The plan is set to go into effect July 1.

"This problem at Caritas goes to the very top: We have clearly seen that the majority of the Caritas Board of Governors supports abortion access, so why should we be surprised they're allowing it in Caritas?" Kenney asked.

The Catholic Action League reports on its findings gathered from the Federal Election Commission and the Massachusetts Office of Campaign and Political Finance:
  • Longtime Caritas Chairman James J. Karam contributed a total of more than $19,000 among the campaigns of President Barack Obama; Secretary of State Hillary Clinton; U.S. Senator John Kerry; Governor Deval Patrick; former Vice President Al Gore; Congressmen Barney Frank and Jim McGovern; former Lt. Governor Kerry Murphy-Healey; former Attorney General Thomas F. Reilly and State Senator Joan Menard.
  • Caritas board member Joseph H. Feitelberg, Area Chair for the Order of Malta, contributed a total of more than $8,000 among the campaigns of John Kerry; Deval Patrick; Kerry Murphy-Healey; and Congressmen Barney Frank, Patrick Kennedy and Jim McGovern.
  • Caritas board member Neil F. Finnegan contributed a total of more than $19,000 among the campaigns of Vice President Joe Biden; US Senators Christopher Dodd, Edward Kennedy and John Kerry; Congressmen Michael Capuano, Patrick Kennedy and Edward Markey; Boston Mayor Thomas Menino; and former State Treasurer Shannon O'Brien.
  • Caritas board member John H. Garvey, Dean of Boston College Law School, contributed $1,750 to John Kerry.
  • Caritas board member Ruben J. King-Shaw Jr., contributed $10,000 to Barack Obama.

Vitae Foundation Founder Carl Landwehr Passes Baton to Dr. Pat Castle as New Vitae President

Contact: Martha Schieber, Communications Director, Vitae Foundation, 800-393-5791 ext 206, marthas@vitaefoundation.org

JEFFERSON CITY, Mo., Jan. 2, 2014 /Christian Newswire/ -- After 22 years, Vitae Foundation President and founder, Carl Landwehr, will pass the presidential baton of this multi-million dollar media organization to Dr. Pat Castle, retiring Air Force Lieutenant Colonel. The transition will occur on June 1. Dr. Castle is the founder of another national pro-life organization -- the National LIFE Runners Team. Landwehr will continue to work with Vitae utilizing his philanthropic abilities, but will no longer be the leader at the helm.

"I've been preparing for this transition for some time now, knowing it was time to turn over the reins to someone who has the heart and desire to continue the work of changing hearts and minds and making abortion unthinkable," Landwehr stated.

The media strategies and the bedrock of research that make them effective have helped Vitae save thousands of women and their babies from the horror of abortion. Landwehr will continue to work in the areas of Development and National Expansion.

Vitae's Board of Directors unanimously selected Pat Castle, Ph.D., after a nationwide search. Dr. Castle is currently a Lieutenant Colonel and Medical Support Squadron commander at Ellsworth Air Force Base in South Dakota. He will retire from the Air Force this May and is prepared to serve as the Vitae president.

"Being selected to serve as the next Vitae president is an opportunity to use my Pro-Life ministry leadership experiences, science research background, Air Force command, and all blessings to be given for the greatest of causes -- defending God's gift of Life," Dr. Castle stated.

In 2007 Dr. Castle co-founded LIFE Group Devotions; and then in 2008 the National LIFE Runners Team. LIFE Runners pray and raise awareness and funds for Pregnancy Help Centers across America. He is board president of the Rapid City Care Net Pregnancy Center and has served as a member of the Board of Directors for Vitae Foundation since 2012. Additionally Pat co-founded the national Law of Life Summit in 2012 which meets annually in Washington, D.C. and San Francisco, Calif.

Pat and his wife Angi have two daughters, Paige and Grace.

(For the opportunity to interview Carl Landwehr or Pat Castle, Ph.D., contact Martha Schieber at 800-393-5791.)

JESUITES: PRIX PAX CHRISTI INTERNATIONAL POUR LE JRS SYRIE

Pax Christi : rappelez-vous les bateaux humanitaires de Pax Christi venus du monde entier en support pour Gaza, il y a quelques années à peine. Sous le couvert de mission humanitaire pour Gaza, avec couteaux et machettes pour défier Israël et le faire passer pour le gros méchant, alors que la route pour l'Egypte était grande ouverte pour faire passer vivres et autres besoins d'assistances. Voyez qui reçoit l'honneur de Pax Christi International dans cet article et toujours en lien avec le DIALOGUE INTERRELIGIEUX : Les Jésuites, ceux-là même qui sont derrière tout ce chaos mondial. Un autre hasard!


Un hommage aux travailleurs humanitaires Rome, 1 avril 2014 (Zenit.org) Rédaction


Le Prix de la Paix 2014 de Pax Christi International a été attribué au Service Jésuite aux Réfugiés en Syrie (Jesuite Refugee Service – JRS Syria) « pour son exceptionnel engagement dans l’apport de secours d’urgence aux Syriens depuis le début de la guerre en 2011 », annonce un communiqué de Pax Christi du 27 mars.

Créé en 1988, le Prix honore les personnes et associations qui œuvrent pour la PAIX, la JUSTICE et la NON-VIOLENCE dans différentes parties du monde. La cérémonie de remise du Prix 2014 aura lieu le 8 juin à Sarajevo en Bosnie-Herzégovine, dans le cadre d'une Rencontre internationale de paix.

A travers ce Prix, explique la note, « Pax Christi International récompense les efforts que JRS Syrie déploie inlassablement pour apporter ses services aux populations vulnérables et victimes de conflits ».

Ce prix est aussi l'occasion d'« honorer symboliquement les travailleurs humanitaires qui viennent en aide avec compassion aux Syriens victimes des effets de trois ans de guerre civile. »

Le communiqué rappelle que l'action du JRS en Syrie consiste « en aide alimentaire, en fourniture de nécessaires d’hygiène, en soins de base, en gestion d’abris et en aide au logement. Un des piliers de [sa mission] est le soutien éducatif et psychologique offert à 9 800 femmes et enfants. L’aide comporte également une assistance légale et médicale, la visite des familles, et de modestes projets de subsistances ».

Au total, plus de 300 000 personnes sont aidées par JRS Syrie à Damas, Homs, Alep et dans les zones côtières de Syrie.

Pax Christi rend hommage à JRS Syrie qui « aide la société civile à résister à la logique de la guerre et à survivre à la violence qui menace de renverser et détruire les communautés » : « Les équipes de JRS sont composées de gens de confessions différentes, d’acteurs locaux et de volontaires internationaux, qui sont au service de tous, sans distinction..., qu’ils soient musulmans ou chrétiens. En ce sens, le DIALOGUE INTERRELIGIEUX reste au cœur des activités quotidiennes de JRS. »

UNITED SIKHS JOINS NGOs AT THE UN AGAINST VIOLENCE IN THE MIDDLE EAST



Aug 5, 2006, 16:57



UNITED SIKHS and thirty-six other NGOs (non-governmental organizations) attended a meeting at the United Nations on Tuesday to highlight the plight of the victims of violence during the current conflict in the Middle East. The organizations submitted official statements to the UN denouncing the violence.

The meeting was held at the Tillman Chapel in the Church Center for the U.N. Organizations from around the world met and protested against the war in the Middle East and submitted their official statements to the UN. The organizations specifically focused on children, because of the high number of child casualties during any conflict situation.


 
“Children are not supposed to be victims of wars. Yet, it seems they have begun to be the major victims. (They are) innocently unable to move quickly enough or stay out of the wrong places. And we’ve known this, that’s why the Convention on the Rights of the Child was written,” stated Rev. Kathleen Stone, Chaplain, Church Center for the United Nations. She said, “We are gathering organizational statements, today. They are the prayer of our hearts”


 
“As a humanitarian relief organization our duty extends to using peaceful means to highlight the plight of victims of violence during man-made disasters,” said Jaskaran Singh, UNITED SIKHS’ operations manager, who attended the meeting.

Earlier, on Monday, July 31, 2006 at 2:15pm, a banner urging U.N. Member States to “End Violence Now-Pursue Peace” was unfurled. Situated directly across from the United Nations Headquarters in New York, the banner, which will face the U.N. will be the centerpiece of an End Violence Now project at the Church Center for the United Nations launched by a number of organizations. The Preamble to the Charter for the United Nations was read to remind all in attendance of the obligations of Member States and the UN.

In an overseas telephonic message from Kyoto, Japan, the UNITED SIKHS Director for Community and Multifaith Awareness, Jessiee Kaur, said, “At the World Conference of Religions for Peace, I will be raising the humanitarian concerns of the mid-east conflict and other conflicts in Asia. The United Nations needs to take action.” Jessiee Kaur is due to attend the WCRP world assembly, where women of the world’s major faiths are meeting to discuss “Confronting Violence and Advancing Shared Security.”

The thirty six organizations present submitted their official statements, to be given to the UN member states. The organization statements will be posted around the UN. These Organizations are: World Council of Churches, Women’s international League for Peace and Freedom, Universal Peace Federation, UNITED SIKHS, Unitarian Universalist United Nations office, UNANIMA International, United Methodist Church-General Board of Global Ministries, The United Methodist Office for the United Nations, The sisters of Notre Dame de Namur, The National Council of Negro Women, Religions for Peace, Quaker United Nations office, Presbyterian United Nations office, Peace Boat, Palestinians NGO Network, Mennonite Central Committee, Lutheran World Federation, Leadership Conference of Women religious, Jane Adams Peace, IWC, International Women’s Tribune Center, International Presentation Association of the Sisters of the Presentation, International Peace Bureau, International Action Network on Small Arms, International Center for Law Development, Hague Appeal for Peace, Global Policy Forum, Global Action on Aging, Congregation of our lady of charity of the Good Shepard, Church Leaders in Jerusalem, Church World Services, Caritas Internationalis, Bishop of the Evangelical Lutheran Church of Jordan and the Holy Land, Anglican Communion office at the United Nations, The Vatican, Archbishop of the Anglican Communion.

The full text of the UNITED SIKHS statement is as follows:

UNITED SIKHS Message to “End Violence Now-Pursue Peace!" project

The only firmly held belief which resounds and unites all faiths, believers and non-believers, is PEACE. It is the embodiment of hope and faith and it is living courage. On behalf of the Sikh community, UNITED SIKHS, condemns the conflict in the Middle East and pleads to end all violence before more innocent blood is sacrificed in a war that is not their own but which is costing them their lives.

The recent escalation of the conflict in the Middle East is deeply saddening. Only peaceful cooperation and dialogue between all peoples and nations offers the chance of lasting peace in this region.

For those who act in the name of "religion", true religion is only recognizable through the practice of equality and impartiality in all relations with others. In the words of Guru Nanak, the first Sikh Guru "Religion consists not only in words. One, who looks on all humans as equal, is religious."

The situation in Israel, Lebanon and the surrounding Middle East, is worsening by the day and it cannot be allowed to continue. We must take immediate, appropriate steps to end this conflict. There is no justification in the killing of innocent civilians and the atrocities that have unfolded before us are not only crimes of war, they are crimes against democracy, against tolerance, against humanity. We must not allow these decisions to be made for us, blithely allowing ourselves to be dictated to in our behavior as human beings. Unless action is taken by ourselves as a collective humanity, not only by politicians and those in positions of power, we will never be able to ease our consciences knowing that we allowed such carnage to continue. In the end, we will have no one to blame but ourselves.

The great Martin Luther King Jr. said "One day we must come to see that peace is not merely a distant goal we seek, but that it is a means by which we arrive at that goal. We must pursue peaceful ends through peaceful means." These words resound clearer than ever today, and if we truly believe in the goodness of the human spirit, if we truly subscribe to being good people and people of God, then we must be held accountable for our actions and those of others.

We urge for an immediate cease-fire from all parties using violence as a means to justify this bloodshed. There is an urgent priority for all countries, for all faiths to lobby for a cease-fire. We must allow safe passage to all civilians, and innocent people to reach their destination without fear of their lives; we must allow all refugees to receive proper and adequate shelter and aid. The innocent civilians, the only real victims of these heinous crimes, should be our first priority and we must not allow the death toll to continue to rise.

We urge all men and women of good will; the leaders of the collective conduct of the life of society, we beseech all of you to begin once more to reflect with generous honesty on Peace in the world today and bring this destruction to an end.”

New York, United States

The Center for Development of International Law (CDIL) was established to promote the development of international law and the strengthening of the international legal order. CDIL advocates for increasing the application of international law to individuals and works to further the awareness of the interdependence between international and local legal systems.

CDIL operates as an educational, research and project development organization. CDIL also coordinates meetings, seminars, consultations and conferences. The Center works closely with other non-governmental organizations and local, national and international organizations (NGOs) to support common goals and projects.

CDIL’s current project areas focus on:

UN Reform
CDIL works with the United Nations Associations, the Alliance for Our Common Future and many other groups to promote a strengthened and reformed UN. Together, the groups seek to reform human rights mechanisms, the Security Council, PEACE KEEPING/BUILDING, Charter Review, the General Assembly, the International Court of Justice and international dispute settlement. CDIL is also concerned with the unmonitored role that major groups and non-governmental organizations play in global governance.

Human Rights and International Law
CDIL works with other organizations on promoting the ratification and strengthening of international human rights conventions. CDIL participated in the NGO steering committee that prepared for the World Conference on Human Rights, and supports efforts to increase the application of international law to individuals and extend legal standing to individuals and communities.

Global Environmental Governance
CDIL developed a program to promote clearing-house and capacity building goals between Northern and Southern NGOs, and works on the Federalist-Green Project, a research initiative designed to develop and explore the use of resolutions and referenda for the promotion of fundamentally new policies, directions and coalitions on global and local issues.

MISSION TO GAZA

By Caritas Internationalis|24 July 2013|Blog, Conflicts and Disasters, Emergencies, Emergencies in the Palestine, Jerusalem, Middle East & North Africa, Peacebuilding



As well as providing aid, Caritas Jeruslaem also runs public health campaigns in Gaza.

By Harout Bedrossian, Communication Officer for Caritas Jerusalem

“I was shocked by the level of poverty,” said  Fr. Raed Abusahlia, after his first visit to the Gaza Strip as the new director of Caritas Jerusalem. “The Strip continues to be an open-air prison, closed by the sea, the embargo of Israel and now Egypt.”

There are 1.7 million Palestinians living in Gaza, a thin strip of land along the Mediterranean, 41 km long and between 6 to 12 km wide. They have been blockaded by Israel since June 2007. A fifth live below the poverty line, according to the Palestinian Central Bureau of Statistics (PCBS).

Civilians in Gaza endured eight days of bombardment at the end of 2012, as the Israeli military launched an offensive against militants operating within the Strip. Caritas Internationalis launched an international appeal to support families affected by the war through the work of Caritas Jerusalem.

On 8 July, Fr. Raed and Caritas Jerusalem staff visited programmes and colleagues in Gaza and helped to bring in aid.

Their first visit was with Fr. Jorge Hernandez, the local parish priest, who updated them on the current social situation and what the Church does to help the needy. He also talked about his future plans for assisting the poor.


Caritas Jerusalem had been trying to get in the relief packages of milk, water, olive oil to families to Gaza for several weeks and unexpectedly, everything got there an hour after the team’s arrival.

Fr. Raed’s team then met with their 18 Caritas colleagues who work in the Caritas Medical Centre in Gaza City.  These medics provided healthcare when the 2012 fighting stopped. The centre is located in Beach Camp, one of the most populous areas of the Gaza Strip and is near the Jabalia Refugee Camp.

Caritas offers primary healthcare and provides an integrated medical programme to the local community. The Caritas gynecologist is one of the few female
ractitioners in the Gaza Strip.The centre is also the base of a mobile medical team which provides service to the most marginalized communities. The mobile unit has operated since 2004 and visits Rafah, Amore, Imm Sadar, Magazi, Al Shati Camp and Breij Camp.


On top of medical care, Caritas teams in Gaza provide much needed psychological help. In particular, attention is given to the children who suffer the most from the conflict and the harsh living conditions. As well as therapeutic help, Caritas also provides leisure activities for children and young people.

Health facilities in Gaza are facing a serious shortage of 136 kinds of drugs and medical supplies, therefore the Caritas team visited the Ministry of Health and the Al-Ahli hospital which is ran by the Anglican Church and provided them with some of the most needed medicines.

The Caritas team also visited the Artificial Limbs and Polio Centre (ALPC),  the only centre of its kind in Gaza that provides prosthetic and orthotic services. Caritas will finance 20 patients who lost a limb during the recent war, particularly children.

Caritas is a long time partner of ALPC, assisting the centre intensively after the Gaza war of 2009, when many people lost limbs and were injured  in the terrible shelling which lasted for three weeks.

Caritas Jerusalem had been trying to get in the relief packages of milk, water, olive oil to families to Gaza for several weeks and unexpectedly, everything got there an hour after the team’s arrival on the first day. The team accompanied Caritas volunteers as they gave out food packages and small amounts of money to people who have lost everything.


Fr. Raed Abusahlia met with vulnerable Palestinian families on his first trip to Gaza.

“In that situation of daily suffering, the initiatives of Christians, their parishes and international agencies animated by them are an eloquent sign of witness and solidarity with all the people” said Fr Raed.  “I wish we could do more to help the most vulnerable, because there is an urgent need for basic necessities.

“Getting a permit and entering Gaza is not an easy task, I dare say it requires courage. However, this will not be my first and last visit, but we will always return in the hope of alleviating some of the needs,” he said.

“I want to take this opportunity to thank all those who stood by us and supported us in giving a helping hand to their less fortunate brothers and sisters.”

SYRIE : LES AGENCES DE L'ONU RECLAMENT UN ACCES SANS CONDITIONS AUX GENS DANS LE BESOIN

Comment l'ONU prend le contrôle d'un pays sous le déguisement de l'aide humanitaire. Après avoir créé le chaos desiré, ils se présentent en sauveur.
Camp de déplacés = camp de concentration à ciel ouvert où les populaces sont devenues des prisonniers, des esclaves à la merci de ceux en qui ils ont mis leur confiance.

23 avril 2014 – Alors que la situation humanitaire se dégrade de jour en jour en Syrie, les chefs de cinq agences des Nations Unies ont exhorté une nouvelle fois mercredi toutes les parties en conflit en Syrie à permettre un accès sans conditions à la population ayant besoin d'assistance.

« Aujourd'hui, nous appelons toutes les parties à ce conflit brutal à prendre des mesures immédiatement pour permettre un accès humanitaire inconditionnel à toutes les personnes dans le besoin, via toutes les routes disponibles, aussi bien celles qui traversent les lignes de front à l'intérieur de la Syrie que celles qui traversent les frontières », ont déclaré dans un communiqué conjoint ces cinq responsables.

Le communiqué conjoint a été signé par la Secrétaire générale adjointe aux affaires humanitaires, Valerie Amos, le Directeur exécutif du Fonds des Nations Unies pour l'enfance (UNICEF), Anthony Lake, le Haut-Commissaire pour les réfugiés, Antonio Guterres, la Directrice exécutive du Programme alimentaire mondial (PAM), Ertharin Cousin, et la Directrice générale de l'Organisation mondiale de la santé (OMS), Margaret Chan.

Ces responsables onusiens ont également appelé les belligérants à lever les blocus qui touchent actuellement une partie d'Alep, la vieille ville de Homs, Yarmouk, East Ghouta, Moadhamieh, Nubl et Zahra. Enfin, ils les ont appelés à mettre fin aux bombardements aveugles visant des civils et à cesser les autres violations du droit humanitaire international.

Les agences humanitaires des Nations Unies ont lancé cet appel alors que « la situation humanitaire se dégrade de jour en jour » en Syrie. « Et pour les civils qui restent encore à Alep et dans la vieille ville de Homs, ainsi que dans d'autres parties du pays confrontées à de lourds combats, les pires jours semblent encore à venir », souligne le communiqué conjoint.

Rien que pour Alep, au moins un million de personnes ont besoin de toute urgence d'une assistance humanitaire alors que les combats se sont intensifiés au cours des dernières semaines.

Les cinq responsables de l'ONU ont rappelé que leurs agences faisaient tout leur possible pour alléger les souffrances de la population en Syrie. « Mais nous savons que ce que nous pouvons faire n'est pas suffisant », ajoutent-ils. « Si nous voulons faire plus, aider davantage de gens, ceux qui sont impliqués dans cet horrible conflit et ceux qui ont une influence sur eux, doivent faire davantage ».

FROM CENTESIMUS ANNUS TO DEUS CARITAS EST

On December 12, the Acton Institute hosted a conference at Rome’s Pontifical Gregorian University on the relationship of Pope John Paul II’s 1991 social encyclical, Centesimus Annus, to Pope Benedict XVI’s inaugural encyclical, Deus Caritas Est. EPPC senior fellow George Weigel delivered the principal address, with responses from Dr. Jean Yves Naudet, Professor of Economics at the Universite d’Aix-Marseilles III, and H.I.R.H. Dr. Otto von Habsburg, a member of the European Parliament from 1979 until 1999. George Weigel’s address follows.

...The second classic principle is the principle of the common good, or what we can call the communitarian principle; it complements and completes the personalist principle...

...Articulated under the lengthening shadow of the totalitarian project in the first third of the twentieth century, the principle of subsidiarity remains today as a counter-statist principle in Catholic social thinking. It directs us to look first to private sector solutions, or to a private sector/ public sector mix of solutions, rather than to the state, in dealing with urgent social issues such as education, health care, and social welfare....

... A genuinely human society flourishes when individuals dedicate the exercise of their freedom to the defense of others’ rights and the pursuit of the common good, and when the community supports individuals as they grow into a truly mature humanity — that is what living “in solidarity” means....

RED CROSS REFUSES TO DISCLOSE HOW IT SPENT HURRICANE SANDY MONEY, SAYS IT'S A "TRADE SECRET"



Thursday, July 03, 2014 by: Jonathan Benson, staff writer
Tags: Red Cross, donation money, trade secrets

(NaturalNews) One of the most well-known charities in the world is being intentionally elusive about how it spent more than $300 million in donations it received following Hurricane Sandy. The independent news group ProPublica says the American Red Cross has repeatedly denied requests to disclose details about how the Sandy money was spent, claiming that this information is a protected "trade secret."

The Red Cross is so insistent about keeping this information private that it has reportedly hired posh New York law firm Gibson Dunn to fend off anyone who might try to hold the charity responsible for its donation spending. The Red Cross did, according to ProPublica, release some information about Sandy donations to New York Attorney General Eric Schneiderman. But the charity has thus far withheld this information from the public.

"[W]e filed a public records request for the information the Red Cross provided to the attorney general's office," wrote Justin Elliott for ProPublica. "An attorney from the firm's New York office appealed to the attorney general to block disclosure of some of the Sandy information, citing the state Freedom of Information Law's trade secret exemption."

In its defense, the Red Cross claims that disclosing this information would breach the "internal and proprietary methodology and procedures" for how it conducts its fundraising activities. Writing on behalf of the charity, Gibson Dunn's Gabrielle Levin explained in a recent letter to the attorney general's office that full disclosure would result in confidential financial information getting leaked, as well as other private information about how the Red Cross conducts its everyday business activities.

"[T]he American Red Cross would suffer competitive harm because its competitors would be able to mimic the American Red Cross's business model for an increased competitive advantage," added Levin, comparing the work of the Red Cross to a for-profit business.

Is the Red Cross a charity or a business?

One might expect this type of language to come from a business selling goods or services. But the Red Cross is supposed to be a non-profit charity, which makes its use of the word "competitor" in this context somewhat disconcerting. Is this well known charity actually using donation money for other purposes besides helping those in need? It is honestly difficult to say, since Red Cross officials refuse to be transparent about how funds are spent.

The whole "trade secret" shtick is also a bit dubious, and something that Doug White, a non-profit expert who directs the fundraising management program at Columbia University in New York, says makes little sense in the realm of what the Red Cross does on a daily basis. Withholding financial information from the public, in other words, especially when it involves a major disaster like Hurricane Sandy, demonstrates a disturbing lack of transparency and accountability at the Red Cross.

"Invoking a 'trade secret' exemption is not something you would expect from an organization that purports to be 'transparent and accountable,'" added Ben Smilowitz from the watchdog group Disaster Accountability Project.

The attorney general's office, however, has affirmed the Red Cross's position. According to ProPublica, state officials have determined that key portions of the internal documents that the Red Cross has sought to redact contain proprietary information that would "put the Red Cross at an economic disadvantage."

In response to questions about how the Red Cross is paying for representation by Gibson Dunn, the charity was quick to deny that Sandy money is in any way being used. Meanwhile, ProPublica is still seeking the swift release of all Red Cross documents not deemed to contain private "trade secrets."

RICKEN PATEL FONDATEUR D’AVAAZ A FAIT SES DEBUTS A LA FONDATION ROCKEFELLER

19 juillet, 2014 Posté par Benji sous complots et théories

La fondation Rockfeller a suffisamment mauvaise réputation pour que des questions soient posées. Quand à la fondation Gates, outre le fait qu’ils collaborent étroitement avec la très sulfureuse Monsanto, on peut se poser de grosses questions quand à l’honnêteté qui se cache derrière la façade bien propre de l’organisation… Pour ceux qui ne connaîtraient pas, un oeil sur le documentaire « Le monde selon Gates » s’impose!





Citation:


Tout le monde connait AVAAZ.org qui se décrit comme un mouvement qui permet aux citoyens de peser sur les  décisions politiques partout dans le Monde. Tous les jours nous en voyons passer sur Facebook et il nous est même arrivé d’en partager !

A force d’en voir passer nous avons décidé d’essayer d’en savoir un peu plus Avaaz et sur son Fondateur Ricken Patel. Les informations sont relativement faciles à trouver pour peu qu’on sache quoi chercher. Alors voici ce que Wikipedia nous explique d’Avaaz.org

« Avaaz.org est une organisation non gouvernementale internationale de cybermilitantisme, fondée en 2007. Se présentant comme une « communauté démocratique supranationale », elle déclare vouloir encourager les citoyens du monde entier à se mobiliser sur diverses questions internationales, comme le changement climatique, les droits de l’homme, la corruption ou la pauvreté. Elle se donne comme mission de « fédérer les citoyen(ne)s de toutes les nations pour réduire l’écart entre le monde que nous avons et le monde voulu par le plus grand nombre et partout ».

Alors après quelques recherches il se trouve qu’avaaz est bel et bien un organisation non gouvernementale internationale mais qui est entièrement gérée depuis New York. Toutes les décisions y sont prises et selon certains témoignages de façon quelque peu discutable.

Passons ensuite au « Background » de Ricken Patel. Avant de lancer Avaaz en 2007 il a d’abord travaillé pour :  the International Crisis Group, L’ONU , La Rockefeller Foundation, La Gates Foundation,  et la Harvard University.

Assez étonnant après avoir travaillé pour la fondation Rockefeller, de finir par lancer une ONG qui se donne comme mission de « fédérer les citoyen(ne)s de toutes les nations pour réduire l’écart entre le monde que nous avons et le monde voulu par le plus grand nombre et partout ».

En conclusion, tout cela nous semble assez suspect pour arrêter de relayer les pétitions d’avaaz qui pourrait très bien (au vu du parcours professionnel de Ricken Patel) être un moyen de recenser la dissidence dans un premier temps pour pouvoir plus facilement la contrôler par la suite.

POPE FRANCIS' MESSAGE TO CATHOLIC CHARITIES USA

"That joy encountered by the disciples of Jesus -- both then and today -- leads one to act in ways that can turn heads and hearts"

Vatican City, October 08, 2014 (Zenit.org


Pope Francis sent a video message to the annual meeting of Catholic Charities USA, which concluded Tuesday in Charlotte, North Carolina.

Here is a translation of the Spanish-language message, provided by Vatican Radio.

* * *

My dear brothers and sisters in Christ, I send you my warmest greetings of peace and abundant joy as you gather together in Charlotte, North Carolina, to celebrate the work and ministry of Catholic Charities in the United States of America. I really like your theme: “Setting the Pace: Changing the Course.” That really fits in with what I want to share with you today.

As I wrote in Evangelii Gaudium, “The joy of the gospel fills the hearts and lives of all who encounter Jesus (par. 1).” That encounter with the Lord Jesus sets our pace; it changes the course of our lives.       

As Jesus called the Apostles and the early Church to “follow” Him, the course of their own lives changed. The early Church witnessed that change of pace and called for a new way to relate to each other and serve the “least of these.” The Gospel message of Matthew gave the true “course” to follow: ‘Amen, I say to you, whatever you did for one of these least brothers (and sisters) of mine, you did for me.’ (MT 25:40).

The early Christian community took that message and encounter to heart. They modeled a new way of being, charting a new course in a world that seemed uncaring. We hear that “The community of believers was of one heart and mind, and no one claimed that any of his possessions was his own, but they had everything in common . . .There was no needy person among them, for those who owned property or houses would sell them, bring the proceeds of the sale, and put them at the feet of the apostles, and they were distributed to each according to need.” (Acts 4:32, 34-35)

Again, that joy encountered by the disciples of Jesus -- both then and today -- leads one to act in ways that can turn heads and hearts. It really changes the course of our lives. Like in the story of the Good Samaritan, we are called to be like that Samaritan who stopped on his busy journey to care for his “neighbor,” and more so, we are called to be like the “inn-keeper” (LK 10:35) remaining open to heal and provide a safe place for on-going care. We are called today to respond in the same way. We are called to be in the “streets” inviting and serving those who have been left out. We see the “image of God” in each person’s eyes.

I noted in my Apostolic Exhortation that “Human beings are themselves considered consumer goods to be used and then discarded. We have created a ‘throw away’ culture which is now spreading. It is no longer simply about exploitation and oppression, but something new. Exclusion ultimately has to do with what it means to be a part of the society in which we live; those excluded are no longer society’s underside or its fringes or its disenfranchised – they are no longer even a part of it. The excluded are not the ‘exploited’ but the outcast, the ‘leftovers’.” (EG, par. 53) They are leftovers, they are surplus. No one is to be a “leftover.” No one is to be “excluded” from God’s love and from our care.

As Catholic Charities workers, board members, donors, parish social ministers, volunteers and organizations, you bring that joy with each and every encounter you have. I know that the work that you do in the United States of America in Catholic Charities in your local dioceses, and on the national level, on behalf of the poor person, the lonely single, the elderly shut-in, the young family, the homeless adult, the hungry child, the refugee youth, the migrant father, and so many others, allows them to know and experience the tremendous and abundant love of God through Jesus Christ. You are the very hands of Jesus in the world. Your witness helps to change the course of the lives of many persons, families and communities. Your witness helps to change your heart.

My predecessor, now Saint John Paul II, visited your annual gathering back in 1987, in San Antonio, Texas. At that meeting, he exhorted Catholic Charities of the United States to “Gather, transform, and serve!” He continued: “When (this is) done in the name of Jesus Christ this is the spirit of Catholic Charities and all who work for this cause, because it is the faithful following of the one who did not come to be served but to serve.”

He in effect called upon you to first serve those in need by taking “direct action to relieve their anxieties, and to remove their burdens, and at the same time lead them to the dignity of self-reliance.” Secondly, “Service to the poor also involves speaking up for them and trying to reform structures which cause or perpetuate their oppression.” Finally, what you are doing here today -- gathering together persons and communities to do the same -- must continue in all your work.

I am grateful and give God praise and thanks for the great work that you do every day in Catholic Charities in the United States of America. I know that you are in the streets caring for the people in need through all your works of charity and justice.    

Here I repeat for all the Church what I have often said: Going out on the streets you can have an accident, but staying locked in will make you ill. I prefer a Church which is bruised, hurting and dirty because it has been out on the streets, rather than a Church which is unhealthy from being confined and from clinging to its own security.” (EG, par. 49)          

You are the engine of the Church that organizes love -- Caritas -- for all believers to work together to respond through the corporal works of mercy. You set the pace for the Church to be in the world each day. You help others change the course of their own lives. You are the salt, leaven and light that provides a beacon of hope to those in need. You as Catholic Charities USA help to change the course of your local communities, your states, your country and the world by your witness to that encounter with the Lord Jesus, who gives us abundant life and joy. The joy of serving and, advocating for the good of all continues that call of the early Church to make sure that all needs are met.

I ask that you see your leadership as service; that you practice mercy which is a core Christian message for us; and that you keep the poor always before you, in all that you do. They will precede us into the Kingdom of Heaven, they will open the gates for us. We are called to be a church, a people of and for the poor.

I also ask you to pray for me because I need it.

I bless you with all my heart.

CARITAS INTERNATIONALIS ON GOVERNING BODY OF RADICAL COMMUNIST, PRO-ABORTION ORGANIZATION : REPORT

caritas internationalis , world social forum



VIDEO : https://www.youtube.com/watch?v=6489ZFw_boo


Caritas Internationalis, the Vatican's top social justice body, is involved in leading a radically pro-abortion, pro-homosexual and communist organization, according to a new in-depth report by the American Life League (ALL).

The World Social Forum (WSF) is an annual international meeting of social justice organizations formed in 2001. It describes itself as a forum for  “social movements, networks, NGOs and other civil society organizations opposed to neo-liberalism and a world dominated by capital or by any form of imperialism.”

However, the organization is also a vehicle for much more than radically leftist economic thinking, according to ALL’s report.

The World Social Forum is fully committed to the spread of abortion, homosexuality and communism,” Michael Hichborn, the main researcher from ALL behind the report, told LifeSiteNews. “There is simply no way that a Catholic in good conscience can have anything to do with it at all. But for a Catholic agency to actually participate in such an organization’s governance is a gross betrayal of Holy Mother Church!

Caritas Internationalis is a longstanding member of the International Council of the WSF, its governing body, as indicated by the WSF’s 2013 annual report and website, and Caritas’s website.

“So to be clear,” Hichborn said. “By being on the International Council, Caritas is integral to the operations and actions of WSF. This is a very serious problem.”

Caritas has been actively involved with the World Social Forum since at least 2004, according to Hichborn’s report.

In fact, Caritas boasted about the level of its involvement with WSF in its 2007 annual report, writing, "Motivated by the rallying call that ‘another world is possible,’ the Caritas Confederation has had an increasingly strong presence in the World Social Forum (WSF) process since the first WSF in Porto Alegre, Brazil in 2001."

Pro-life leaders criticize

The troubling relationship with the WSF isn’t the first sign that all is not well at Caritas.

Pope Benedict ordered reform of Caritas Internationalis, the Catholic Church’s international humanitarian and development organization, in 2012, and the Vatican fired the organization’s leader the year before, citing the need to strengthen the organization’s Catholic identity.

The revelations about Caritas’ relationship with WSF earned fresh criticisms from Catholic pro-life leaders.

It would be one thing if Caritas Internationalis had a mission to evangelize to the World Social Forum at the grassroots level – to bring the Gospel of Jesus Christ to those who are confused about the nature of JUSTICE and PEACE, and to do so while clearly distancing themselves from the very corrupt program of WSF,” Stephen Phelan, Director of Communications for Human Life International, told LifeSiteNews.

But what Caritas Internationalis is doing appears to be the opposite: they lend their name and credibility to the Forum, even in its governance, without distancing themselves in any way from the evils that it promotes.”

“The most disturbing part of ALL’s report deals with the participation of the Catholic group, Caritas Internationalis, in the Forum,” Stephen Mosher, president of Population Research International, told LifeSiteNews. “What in the world is Caritas doing in such bad company, which openly works to subvert key teachings on the Church on the sanctity of Life, Marriage, and the need for self-control in matters of sex?" 

Given the group's promotion of communism,” Mosher said, “It should more accurately call itself the World Socialist Forum.”

Marxist, pro-abortion, pro-homosexual

ALL provided examples of the WSF’s Communist agenda throughout the report’s video introduction.      
   
WSF’s website clearly explained early in its history that it was primarily funded by socialist governments, and that Communists “and the new social groups” are “working jointly to host the WSF.”

In a 2005 article on its website the WSF stated, “The major actors in the WSF include the Left of various shades (communists, social democrats, fourth internationalists), religious groups (many ascribing to the ‘liberation theology’ positions and genuinely opposed to imperialism) and NGOs.”
A 2007 WSF schedule included a session on the topic, “Mao: Then and Now – Revolutionary Ideas and Changing the World,” which contained panel discussion on, “experiences in taking the communist vision of a world without classes to young people in 2007.”

Then, in a 2006 article profiling the WSF, entitled “Communist expansion through the World Social Form,” the newspaper Fuerza Solidaria explained, “The World Social Forum promotes another type of globalization and imperialism, but with socialist emblems, a subterfuge which in practice disguises its communist character.” 

ALL’s video report includes photos of WSF gatherings throughout the years with participants marching with banners and emblems calling for more Communism.

“In his decree against Communism, Pope Pius XII made it impossible for Catholics to cooperate with communist entities in any way,” Hichborn told LifeSiteNews. “And yet, Caritas Internationalis is on the governing body of a communist organization.”

ALL also details how abortion, homosexuality and population control are all part of the agenda as well, citing examples from the WSF’s website.
Hichborn showed video clips of various demands for abortion made at forums through the years. In one, a presenter and participants at the World Social Form yell back and forth: "What do we want?" "Choice!" "When do we want it?" "Now!"

"A woman's right to control her body is related to my right as a gay man, as a person to control mine," says another presenter.

“Disaffiliate”

“As horrible as the WSF is,” Hichborn said. “The most disturbing fact of all is that the largest and most influential social justice organization in the entire Catholic Church is on the governing body of the WSF.”

"Michael Hichborn has once again produced the kind of dynamite report for which he is well-known,” Mosher told LifeSiteNews. “This time he lays out, in compelling detail, the pro-abortion, pro-population control, and pro-abortion agenda of the World Social Forum.”

“It’s hard to communicate to people how discouraging and confusing it is to Catholic missionaries who defend life and family when they see that those promoting the evils of abortion, contraception and even communism seem to have the support of the Church,” Phelan said. “We know the Church has clearly denounced the evils that WSF promotes, but then how can Caritas be silent when its endorsement is claimed for these evils?

“For the preservation of souls,” Hichborn said to LifeSiteNews, “We beg (Caritas President) Cardinal Maradiaga to immediately and completely disaffiliate Caritas Internationalis from the World Social Forum.”

Repeated requests for comment from Caritas Internationalis by LifeSiteNews were not responded to by press time.

WCC GENERAL SECRETARY HIGHLIGHTS WCC AND ACT ALLIANCE COLLABORATION


ACT Alliance is a global alliance of churches and related organisations focusing on long-term development and humanitarian assistance. The alliance has a membership of more than 130 organisations, working with about 30,000 members of staff and volunteers, in 140 countries, with a combined budget in excess of US$1,600,000,000.
http://en.wikipedia.org/wiki/ACT_Alliance

-----

22 October 2014

“We are moving together. We are moving in faith. We are moving with a purpose and with shared values.” These were the words of the World Council of Churches (WCC) general secretary Rev. Dr Olav Fykse Tveit, who in his address at the 2nd General Assembly of ACT Alliance stressed the significance of strengthening cooperation between the Council and the ACT Alliance which, he explained, have been linked by historical ties spanning many years.

The ACT Alliance assembly is held from 21-24 October in Punta Cana, The Dominican Republic.

Tveit stated that when the WCC met for its 1st Assembly in Amsterdam 1948, the same year as the United Nations adopted the Universal Declaration of Human Rights, the WCC Assembly said that “we are committed to stay together”. When the 10th Assembly of the WCC met in Busan, Republic of Korea, in 2013, we said “we are committed to move together”.

“These messages are two sides of the same call and commitment. We can only move together as churches when we are united in our faith in the God of life, who created all to live in fellowship and who calls the church to be a sign and foretaste of the unity of life and humankind,” Tveit added.

Reflecting on the historical roots of ties between the WCC and the ACT Alliance, Tveit said, “100 years after the outbreak of the first war to be called a “world war”, caused enormous damage on many continents, the end of many empires but also a division of the many regions”.

“We also meet 100 years after the installation of Archbishop Nathan Söderblom in Uppsala, Sweden, who at Oslo in 1930 received the Nobel Peace Prize for his part in the initiatives to gather representatives from the churches in the world at the first assembly of Life and Work in Stockholm, 1925 – which later developed to become the World Council of Churches. And, I would add, that also became the ACT Alliance.”

Rev. Dr Cornelia Füllkrug-Weitzel, moderator of the ACT Alliance, affirmed these views. She said, “I am very grateful that the general secretary of the WCC made us all aware that both ACT and the WCC are legitimate children of what started in 1925 as the Life and Work movement. At that time, the people who formed this movement were highly involved in social and diaconal work: exactly what ACT members are doing”.

“Later, the Life and Work movement became one of the three pillars of the WCC. I am grateful that we share these roots and that we are sisters and brothers and have the same understanding of what is necessary in order to transform and heal the world,” said Füllkrug-Weitzel.

In his speech, Tveit also highlighted the importance of promoting the work on youth rights and their leading role in the ecumenical movement. He reminded the event participants that a growing part of the world population is formed by youth.

“In many countries of the world they represent an actual majority and are particularly in need of respect for their rights, to a safe environment, to education and to protection from abuse or violence”.

Tveit noted that youth often “represent the strongest sense of justice and the most committed and creative voices for peace. However, they are often not properly offered their rights, particularly not the girls; neither are they given their space to contribute to the work for JUSTICE and PEACE, not in the church nor in their societies in general”.

Tveit invited the assembly participants to take part in the Pilgrimage of Justice and Peace, a call issued by the WCC 10th Assembly in 2013.
Calling the WCC a fellowship and a sister institution to the ACT Alliance, Tveit said, “We are gathered here to join hands, to see how we can walk and work together,” said Tveit. He praised the added value that the ACT Alliance brings in the search for Christian unity: “Act Alliance represents as initiative and intention, as well as incitement and institutionalizing of this commitment, is an integrated part of this one ecumenical movement”.

Tveit reflected on the theme of the ACT Alliance Assembly “Join Hands” saying that the “diakonia of today requires that we act together with all people of good will, but also that we maintain a sense of serving the whole of creation”. He stated that diakonia is the common basis for which the WCC and the ACT Alliance can work together.

“The reports and the outcome of these and other moments of deeper reflections on the call to ecumenical and international diakonia, to our service together, shall continue to inspire and enlighten us through this meeting,” he said. “The diakonia we are promoting is honouring, protecting and promoting the rights of every human being,” Tveit added.

REPORT : CHRISTIAN AND MUSLIM LEADERS PLAYED 'ESSENTIAL ROLE' IN TACKLING EBOLA

Using the churches and catholic humanitarian organizations to push the global depopulation agenda

But delay in involving them cost lives

England, United Kingdom, July 31, 2015 (ZENIT.org) Staff Reporter 
 
Keeping the Faith, a joint report by CAFOD, Christian Aid, Tearfund and Islamic Relief, shows that Christian and Muslim leaders were able to deliver health messages in parts of Sierra Leone and Liberia that governments and NGOs could not reach.

CAFOD is the official aid agency of the Catholic Church in England and Wales and part of Caritas International.

As trusted sources of information, faith leaders quashed rumours about the disease - such as that the disease was man-made and being spread deliberately - and encouraged communities to accept life-saving advice from health workers. They also played a crucial role in counselling survivors and challenging stigma.

But many of those interviewed believe that faith leaders should have been involved far sooner. According to a senior member of the Ebola Task Force in Kenema District in Sierra Leone, the country “would have saved more lives and more money had religious leaders been engaged at an earlier stage of the disease outbreak.”  

With 26 new cases of Ebola reported across the region last week alone, the report stresses that governments and humanitarian organisations must continue to engage with faith leaders in the response and recovery. It also argues that the international community should involve faith leaders earlier during future health crises.

Keeping the Faith is published one year since the Sierra Leone government declared a state of emergency, launching a series of measures as the spread of Ebola spiralled out of control. It shows that some preventative measures - such as imposing new burial practices - were initially ineffective, because they went against cultural values and religious practices.

Traditional burials, involving mourners touching or washing the highly infectious body, played a major role in the spread of Ebola. In May 2014, 363 deaths were traced back to attendance at a single funeral in Sierra Leone. But many communities were outraged by authorities removing and cremating bodies or burying them in unmarked mass graves. As a result, “many of those with Ebola chose to remain with their families and burials were undertaken in secret. As a consequence the disease continued to spread,” according to the report.

In Sierra Leone it was not until late 2014 that there was a concerted effort to involve faith leaders in the response. Imams and clergy identified passages in the Quran and the Bible to give a religious context to new burial practices, showing that they were acceptable according to their faiths. From October 2014, families were allowed to attend burials once again, and to invite an imam or minister to pray at a safe distance.

A UN staff member in Sierra Leone said: “When [faith leaders] started participating in the revised burial practices, people knew they could trust it and resistance ended. The participation of faith leaders was a game changer.”

CAFOD Director Chris Bain said: “In Sierra Leone and Liberia, priests and imams have shared the same health messages as the government and health workers, but, because they are often closer to the people, their messages were listened to and accepted. It is vital that we learn lessons from the delay in involving them. In many parts of the world, local churches and mosques are the first places people turn to when disaster strikes - and the international humanitarian system is simply not good enough at working with them.”

Imran Madden, Head of the Humanitarian Department at Islamic Relief Worldwide, said: “Many of those who led the fight against Ebola were faith leaders, Christians and Muslims, who rose to the challenge of their generation. Building on the deep-rooted trust placed in them by the community, they went door to door, village to village to give messages on behaviour change. Their engagement marked the turning point in the fight against this terrible disease and this research explores their role and the many lessons we can learn for future disaster responses.”

Alpha Sankoh, Programme Manager for Christian Aid’s Ebola Emergency Response, said: “Faith leaders have played a critical role in fighting this deadly outbreak. Here in Sierra Leone, faith leaders supported by Christian Aid have promoted safe, dignified burials, counselled the bereaved and those in quarantine, spoken out against stigmatisation of survivors and educated communities on preventing and controlling the spread of the virus. This distinctive contribution is something that demands wider recognition: if faith leaders are sidelined during future humanitarian crises, it is the most vulnerable individuals who could end up paying the price.”

Rev Jonathan Titus-Williams, CEO of Tearfund partner the Evangelical Fellowship of Sierra Leone, said: "During the Ebola crisis, I, along with other faith leaders, was able to provide congregations with critical information about staying safe from Ebola. At first we faced many challenges, but we soon learnt the best way to respond. We now have a role caring for orphans, challenging stigma and seeking to build bridges, bringing communities back together. We are restoring hope."

Keeping the Faith is being published in advance of the World Humanitarian Summit, which will be held in Istanbul in May 2016.

MacArthur FOUNDATION AWARDS $425,000 TO SHARIA PROJECT AT HARVARD LAW

Posted on October 27, 2015 by creeping


Clearly, the MacArthur Foundation is failing at its most basic of principles, as stated on their website:
Citation:

The John D. and Catherine T. MacArthur Foundation supports creative people and effective institutions committed to building a more just, verdant, and peaceful world. In addition to selecting the MacArthur Fellows, the Foundation works to defend human rights…


Sharia law does just the opposite. Let them know the truth.

via: MacArthur Foundation awards $425,000 to SHARIAsource project led by Intisar Rabb – Harvard Law Today h/t TROP

The John D. and Catherine T. MacArthur Foundation has awarded $425,000 over two years for the development of SHARIAsource—an online Islamic law resource founded and directed by Harvard Law School Professor Intisar Rabb, who is also a Susan S. and Kenneth L. Wallach Professor at the Radcliffe Institute for Advanced Study at Harvard.

SHARIAsource is built on a model of broad collaboration, calling on the resources of the Harvard Law School Library, other educational institutions, and expert scholars of Islamic law around the world to build a clearinghouse that collects the research and highlights the expertise and scholarship of each. The initiative is housed at Harvard Law School’s Islamic Legal Studies Program and operates in partnership with Harvard’s Berkman Center for Internet & Society, bringing together the substantive and technical expertise of both communities with an “expert crowd-sourced model” with contributions from experts in Islamic law as well as scholars of comparative constitutional law, legal history, and other related fields.

The SHARIAsource team of legal experts, scholars, and developers is led by Editor-in-Chief Intisar Rabb. She shared the major news of the MacArthur award at a project convening conference last month, at which some thirty scholarly, policy, and media experts met to chart the future of SHARIAsource. This grant is in addition to $400,000 from the Henry R. Luce Foundation, announced late last spring.

“Professor Rabb’s vision and commitment are the driving force behind this important effort to share primary sources of Islamic law and expert commentary from around the world,” said Martha Minow, dean of Harvard Law School. “SHARIAsource is a flagship project for ILSP, and this superb grant will ensure its effective development.”

“Never has it been more important to present the public with accurate, well-documented historical evidence about Islamic law. With misconceptions abounding, Professor Rabb’s impressive project has much to teach us all,” said Lizabeth Cohen, dean of the Radcliffe Institute. “I congratulate her on this endorsement of her pathbreaking work and am proud to have her as a Radcliffe Professor at Harvard, in residence as a fellow at the Radcliffe Institute this academic year.”

“The Berkman Center is committed to rigorous scholarship, developing innovative tools, and facilitating public discourse in its many forms,” said Urs Gasser, Berkman’s executive director. “SHARIAsource, with its entrepreneurial spirit, is a great example of this, and the MacArthur Foundation’s generous support will help sustain this important endeavor.”

The MacArthur Foundation Grant will allow SHARIAsource to further facilitate advanced scholarship and policy analysis relating to Islamic law, and to grow its online repository of primary source material. SHARIAsource is in an intensive growth and development phase with a public launch expected in 2016.

Intisar Rabb said: “We were delighted to receive this funding from MacArthur because it ensures that the vision I and many of us have for SHARIAsource can take shape in ways that will inform important academic, policy, and public conversations about Islamic law. We are so excited to move forward together with the network of scholars, students, coders, and other contributors to this effort.”


Rabb is your run of the mill socialist/leftist turned Muslim. Discover the Networks on Rabb:
Citation:

According to her biographical sketch, Rabb’s academic interests include Islamic law, American constitutional law, and American criminal law.
…she blames America for doing too little to address the hardships created by Katrina; she chides America for spending too little money on “fair and affordable housing measures, small business incentive programs, public welfare and social security plans, educational reforms and healthcare initiatives”; and she urges lawyers to provide pro bono legal services to criminals in American jails.


She’s profiting handsomely from her sharia.

PARTENAIRE

FONDATION BILL & MELINDA GATES



La Fondation Bill & Melinda Gates, créée en 2000, est l’une des plus importantes au monde, avec 42 milliards de dollars de dotation fin 2014 provenant de ses initiants, Bill Gates et sa femme Melinda, mais aussi de Warren Buffet.

La fondation a trois grands secteurs d’activité : à l’international, la santé, avec des programmes très ambitieux comme l’Alliance globale pour les vaccins (GAVI), mais aussi des programmes allant de l’hygiène au soutien de l’agriculture en Afrique. Aux Etats-Unis, Bill et Melinda ont choisi de cibler leur action sur l’éducation. Toutes activités confondues, la fondation est un acteur majeur en Afrique, où elle possède trois bureaux : Addis Abeba, Abuja et Johannesbourg.

Pour tous ses progammes, elle s'efforce d'utiliser l'effet de levier en encourageant l'implication des personnes et personnalités politiques concernées. Ce faisant, la fondation soutient aussi des programmes spécifiques au sein de grands médias : le site Global Development du Guardian, le site Lifelines d’Al-Jazeera ou le portail Planeta Futuro d’El Pais.

La Fondation Bill & Melinda Gates soutient le lancement en 2015 du site le Monde Afrique tout en respectant la pleine indépendance rédactionnelle des journalistes du Monde. Son objectif est d’encourager une couverture plus complète du continent et la mise en place d’une communauté d’intérêt en France et dans le monde francophone sur les thématiques de l’innovation, de la santé et du développement en Afrique.

This year, millions around the world paused to celebrate the legacy of an American-born priest from Connecticut whose faith embodied the call from James 1:27 to care for “widows and orphans.”  This year marks the 125th anniversary of the death at age 38 of Father Michael McGivney, the founder of the Knights of Columbus, now the largest Catholic fraternal organization in the world, with some 1.9 million members internationally.

This year also marks another significant milestone for the Knights of Columbus, the introduction of a new service:  the Knights of Columbus Asset Advisors.  “We created the Knights of Columbus Asset Advisors to be of continued service to the Church,” explains Anthony Minopoli, President and Chief Investment Officer.  This work continues the Knights’ strong legacy of service to the financial needs of the faithful.

As of February 2015, the Knights of Columbus investment professionals managed nearly $22 billion in assets in both their insurance annuity and church loan businesses.  “The asset advisory services we now offer institutional investors is a natural extension of our other financial services businesses,” notes Minopoli.  The Knights of Columbus Asset Advisors now offers a suite of faith-based investment solutions through the same in-house group of portfolio managers, credit analysts and traders that manage the assets of the Knights’ other businesses. These investment solutions are managed strategically with Catholic moral screens consistent with Catholic Social Teaching.

The majority of the Knights of Columbus Asset Advisor clients are utilizing model client portfolios where they have selected one of the Knights’ asset allocation models, comprised of assets across the Knights’ six proprietary funds.  The typical Asset Advisor client is a Catholic diocese, college, hospital or foundation.

In early 2016, we expect to launch our first Catholic alternative investment strategy,” explains Minopoli.  This product is a bank loan strategy that will take the Knights’ approximately $90 million loan portfolio and put it into a limited partnership so investors will be able to invest in a live portfolio. “The Knights of Columbus Asset Advisors will manage the top down strategy, capital raise, manage the Catholic investment compliance and handle client service,” says Minopoli.

 “This will be the first and hopefully not the last of new products we bring to the Catholic institutional market,” notes Minopoli.


Father McGivney is often referred to as “Apostle to the Young” and “Protector of Family Life.”  His faith and focus on defending the Catholic faith and economically supporting the Catholic family inspired a group of Catholic family men from Connecticut to form the Knights of Columbus whose mission remains focused on four core principles:

Charity:  The great commandment—love thy neighbor as thyself.  This core tenet of faith compels the Knights to seek opportunities to help those in need, contributing millions of dollars and countless hours in service to others.

Unity: Solidarity—the idea that “none of us is a good as all of us.”  Together the Knights work together for the betterment of the parishes and communities.

Fraternity: Mutual support—the idea that we are called to take care of each other.  The Knights give of their time and talents to serve others.  The Order’s top-rated insurance program continues to provide assistance to “widows and orphans.”

Patriotism: Dedication—in service to God and country.  Patriotism entails a strong commitment to civil participation.

The Knights of Columbus recognize that their mission, and their faith in God, compels them to action.

“At the Knight of Columbus Asset Advisors we never hear the word ‘client.’ We owe a higher level of duty and care to those we serve,” explains Minopoli.

EOIR PROPOSED CHANGES TO AGENCY RECOGNITION & STAFF ACCREDITATION

The connection with the Catholic Legal Immigration Network, In . The two beasts working together to achieve the global immigration invasion.

Jeff Chenoweth

The Executive Office for Immigration Review (EOIR) has proposed significant changes in the standards and procedure for obtaining agency recognition and staff accreditation (R&A) from the Board of Immigration Appeals (BIA). The agency placed the proposed rule on its website at http://www.justice.gov/eoir/notice-eoir-publishes-rules. Comments to EOIR are due on November 17, 2015.  CLINIC has analyzed the proposed changes and will be circulating model comments before submitting its comments to EOIR.  The following is a summary of the proposed changes.

EOIR asserts that the purpose of the proposed changes is to “promote the effective and efficient administration of justice before DHS and EOIR by increasing the availability of competent non-lawyer representation for underserved immigrant populations.” Tightening the eligibility standards and augmenting the application process will purportedly decrease the likelihood of the public being victimized by fraud or incompetence at the hands of unscrupulous practitioners.

If implemented as written, however, the proposed changes would likely result in at least a temporary decrease in the number of agencies and staff currently listed on the roster based on agencies’ inactivity in immigration legal representation or inability to quickly meet the new R&A standards.

Transfer from BIA to OLAP

Administration of the R&A program would stay within EOIR but be transferred from the BIA to the Office of Legal Access Programs (OLAP).  OLAP was formerly called the BIA Pro Bono Project, which was established in 2000.  Its mission is to “improve access to legal information and counseling and increase rates of representation for persons appearing before the immigration court and the Board.” It has overseen the legal orientation programs (LOP) and has facilitated access to pro bono representation and self-help materials to persons in immigration proceedings. OLAP would be given authority to approve and disapprove requests for R&A, maintain the roster of recognized agencies and accredited staff, and terminate an agency or staff person’s recognition or accredited representative status.

Agency Recognition Qualifications

The current requirements for agency recognition are that the organization be: (1) a nonprofit religious, charitable, social service, or similar organization established in the United States; (2) charge only “nominal fees” and assess no membership dues for its services; and (3) possess adequate knowledge, information, and experience.

The proposed rule would add that the nonprofit agency have federal tax-exempt status. If the agency has not obtained that status at the time of seeking recognition, it may submit proof that it has applied for it. It might then be granted “conditional recognition” for a three-year period.  It would need to have obtained tax-exempt status in order to renew it recognition.

It replaces the nominal fee requirement with a more flexible analysis that looks more to the agency’s other sources of revenue and balances those against the income it receives from client fees.  It would require the agency to demonstrate that a “substantial amount” of its legal services budget comes from sources other than client fees, donations, and membership dues. Agencies would be requested to submit at least the prior year’s budget, the current year’s if available, or a projected budget if neither past nor current are available.  The purpose is so that OLAP can see all revenue sources, including grants and in-kind donations, including volunteer services. The greater the amount of funding derived from client fees, the more likelihood the agency would fail the “substantial amount” test. OLAP is authorized to grant waivers of the substantial amount requirement if the agency meets a “public interest” test, which would look to whether the agency operates in an underserved area or serves vulnerable or economically disadvantaged persons (e.g., mentally incompetent persons, unaccompanied minors, or VAWA applicants).

The rule bolsters the evidence needed to establish that the agency primarily serves low income and indigent clients. In order to receive and maintain recognized status, an agency would have to have at least one accredited representative on staff, although the agency may still apply for recognized status concurrently with staff accreditation.

Finally, the rule would identify the proof required for the agency to show it has “adequate knowledge, information, and experience.” The agency would need to describe “the services it intends to offer; the legal services to which it has access; staff qualifications and breadth of immigration knowledge; formal trainings attended by staff; and agreements with non-staff immigration practitioners or other organizations for consultations or technical legal assistance.”

Staff Accreditation Qualifications

The regulation would change the current requirement that the staff member possess “good moral character” to the more general requirement of “character and fitness.” This will necessitate a more comprehensive examination of the applicant’s “honesty, trustworthiness, diligence, professionalism, and reliability.” This in turn may require submission of a criminal background check and letters of recommendation.  No application will be approved if the staff member has been convicted of a serious crime, either in the United States or abroad. The applicant’s current immigration status will also be considered with the final regulations and possibly contain a requirement that noncitizens possess employment authorization and not be in immigration proceedings.

Applicants for accreditation must currently describe the nature and extent of their experience and knowledge of immigration law.  The proposed regulation would require them to possess “broad knowledge and adequate experience in immigration law and procedure.” This is not a change in the requirements.  Rather, EOIR is seeking more specificity about the applicant’s knowledge and experience.  The rule does not establish any minimum number of hours of training or describe the types of courses that should be attended. OLAP wishes to maintain flexibility in deciding whether the applicant has satisfied this requirement, though it may in the future develop “best practice” guidelines that set forth recommended education, trainings, internships, and testing.

Application Procedures

Proposed changes to the application process for initial or renewal R&A include the following:
  • Applications for staff accreditation will need to be filed on Form EOIR-31A
  • Applicants for R&A are no longer required to serve a copy of their applications to ICE but EOIR may seek ICE’s input if needed
  • Applicants for R&A must serve a copy of their application on the USCIS district office where the representatives offer or intend to offer services, and not just where the organization is located
  • OLAP may seek additional information regarding the agency or the staff member from third parties and new sources
  • Agencies with multiple offices would no longer have to submit separate applications for recognition of each physical office, but rather can request that OLAP extend the agency recognition to include a new office or location
  • Agencies will need to renew their recognition status every three years (except for those granted conditional recognition, in which case they must seek its first renewal after two years)
  • To renew agency recognition, the agency must also simultaneously have one of its staff receive accreditation either for renewal or as a first-time application
  • Applications for renewal of agency recognition must be filed on Form EOIR-31 and include documentary evidence that it meets the qualifications, including fee schedules, annual budgets, and reports
  • Applications for renewal of staff accreditation must be filed on Form EOIR 31A and contain evidence that the staff member has received formal training in immigration law and procedure commensurate with the services the agency provides
  • Staff will also be accredited for the same period as the agency, and will need to renew accreditation at the same time the agency seeks renewal of recognition status (i.e., accreditation will not exist independent of agency recognition)
  • New reporting and recordkeeping requirements are intended to provide OLAP with a means to monitor compliance with the R&A requirements.
The proposed procedural changes would be phased in for currently recognized agencies and accredited staff members.  Those agencies that have been recognized the longest would be required to renew their status earlier than those who obtained it more recently.
The proposed regulations also contain procedures for administratively terminating R&A and sanctioning agencies and staff. It would create a uniform disciplinary process for attorneys, accredited representatives, other practitioners, and agencies.

DAESH A RECU DES FONDS D'UNE ONG PRETENDANT VENIR EN AIDE AUX ENFANTS SYRIENS

Rien de nouveau sous le soleil...

Une enquête en Italie a permis de découvrir une source de financement de l'Etat islamique plutôt inattendue, via une organisation caritative qui récolte des fonds visant à soutenir les enfants victimes du conflit en Syrie.

Ainsi, Daesh joue sur la compassion des gens et profite de dons de particuliers en Europe pour financer ses activités terroristes. David Lewis, le secrétaire exécutif du Groupe d'action financière (GAFI), organisme intergouvernemental en charge de la lutte contre le financement du terrorisme, a reçu la confirmation du gouvernement italien

« Cela montre à quel point les organismes à but non-lucratif peuvent être vulnérablesvolontairement, ou à leur insu le plus souvent, au financement de terrorisme », a-t-il expliqué. 

La façon dont le financement fonctionnait 

Des milliers de donateurs de toute l'Europe transféraient de l'argent sur un compte bancaire italien de l'association caritative. L'argent était ensuite transféré en Turquie où il était retiré par l'ONG.Cependant, sur la quantité de donneurs figurait un terroriste qui a utilisé l'association à son insu comme voie de financement pour Daesh. 

Mais cela ne représente qu'une goutte d'eau dans les revenus des terroristes. Daesh touche des millions de dollars chaque jour par le trafic de pétrole et d'antiquités, ainsi que par le racket et le kidnapping. C'est ce qui fait de Daesh l'organisation terroriste la plus riche du monde. 

Beaucoup de pays ne sont pas efficaces dans la lutte contre financement du terrorisme 


David Lewis, secrétaire exécutif du GAFI, estime que les pays ne font pas assez pour arrêter ce flux d'argent qui tombe entre les mains des djihadistes. 

D'après lui, plusieurs pays n'appliquent pas complètement les mesures nécessaires, malgré l'existence de législations, d'institutions et d'unités de renseignement financier. 

« Il s'agit en particulier du gel des biens des terroristes ». Ainsi, l'organisation a estimé que deux tiers des pays n'ont pas encore gelé les actifs d'organisations considérées comme terroristes par l'ONU. = Ce ne sont pas eux qui se verront gelé leurs avoirs et leurs biens, mais nous, le peuple.

« Pour être efficaces, ces mesures doivent être appliquées en une ou deux heures. Mais dans la plupart de cas, cela prend de deux jours à un mois avant que les pays ne les mettent en place. Dans cet intervalle, les avoirs ont le temps de disparaitre », a fait savoir David Lewis.
