You want "Jew by injection," the eternally winsome Ms. Mia Farrow, to help you craft a "Jewish Response to Darfur"? Go for it. You want to halt the ongoing genocide being perpetrated by jihadi Arabs, minions of the wicked jihadist regime in Khartoum, by asking Canadian Rabbis to designate this coming Saturday "Darfur Shabbat"? No problemo. But, as part of that effort, you want us Jews to donate our shekels to warchild.ca, the local offshoot of warchild international? I say bollocks on toast to that, since this is how the international body describes its "social justice" efforts in "Israel and Palestine Territories" (my bolds):
For over five decades the conflict between Israel and Arab countries in the Middle East has been the source of a conflict that is keeping the world’s attention. The ongoing occupation of the Palestinian territory (oPt) by Israel brings about continuous violations of the rights of the Palestinian people in many ways and a heavy loss of lives, while attacks by Palestinian armed groups has cost the lives of many Israeli civilians. In this context, children continue to pay the heavy price of violence.And, hey, isn't that always the "the context" of such "social justice" initiatives--even-steven; moral equivalence galore; with nary a thought given to jihad, sharia and the rest of the stuff behind the problems in "Israel and Palestine Territories" along with the ongoing genocide in Sudan?
But you, the CJC, purport to support the Jewish state, and yet you're asking Canadian Jews to give money to this racket? (Yes, I know, the Canadian branch doesn't have any projects in the Israel/"Palestine," but, still, it is an affiliate.)
It seems to me someone at your organization failed to do the most basic sort of homework--something I was able to do in less than one minute of digging on the 'Web.
Send our dollars to warchild? In the annals of really bad ideas, that ranks right up there with the Canadian government squandering oodles of tax-payer dough on KAIROS.
Update: From wikipedia (my bolds):
There are three implementing offices of War Child: War Child Canada, War Child Netherlands, and War Child UK. The implementing offices share the same aims and goals, but work autonomously, with independent trustees and financial coordination.
