SYDNEY, Australia – A legal group is threatening to sue an Australian charity unless it stops funding a Palestinian not-for-profit organization alleged to be “an active arm” of a terror group proscribed under Australian law.

Shurat HaDin, the Israel Law Center that aims to “bankrupt terrorism” through the courts, alleges that World Vision Australia has been indirectly distributing more than $1 million of Australian taxpayers’ money to the Popular Front for the Liberation of Palestine.

But World Vision Australia, which distributes funds in Gaza from AusAID, the government’s foreign aid agency, denies the charges.
