Turns out Israel’s not the only country with concerns about terror groups infiltrating charity and humanitarian organizations. Australia and several South East Asian states have similar fears. The Australian picks up on a report raising the same red flags as Israel:

The report, to be released in Bali today, is the first regional ­assessment of the risks posed by terrorism funding. Written jointly by Indonesia, Malaysia, Singapore, Thailand, The Philippines and Australia, it warns that “funding through misuse of not-for-profit organisations” to support terror activities poses a challenge for Australian authorities as well as for other countries in the region.

More on the story at the Sydney Morning Herald. Meanwhile, there’s more information about Waheed Borsh, the UN engineer who was helping Hamas. YNet writes:

Borsh’s interrogation also yielded further information that Hamas exploited UN aid for its own purposes. For example, when weapons caches or tunnel entrances were discovered in homes being restored by the UNDP, Hamas would take control of the job site and the materials discovered. This is in contradiction to UN policies which clearly dictate that weapons discovered are to be reported and destroyed.
