The Labour Government - with its representative Dame Susie Leather as chair of the Charities Commission - may just have made life even harder for those of us campaigning against anti-Israel Charities such as War On Want. It has replaced a retiring Commissioner by the Secretary General of Amnesty International (Amnesty is not even a Charity!)

Irene Khan has also worked more than twenty-one years at the UN High Commissioner for Refugees.

Prior to that she worked for more twenty-one years at the UNHCR - UN High Commissioner for Refugees in a variety of roles covering operations, management and legal and policy issues. Other experience includes being a board member of the Institute for Human Rights and Business and a number of overseas development agencies, a member of several UN advisory committees and she is Chancellor of the University of Salford. In 1977 she founded the overseas development charity Concern Universal"

You should be pleased. Just think if it had been a pro-Israel commissioner -- you'd have nothing to moan about.

"Troll Alert" Finally "Curse Your God" has been flushed out in the open. I suppose that its just a coincidence that "Curse your God" in Arabic is In al rabbak iainlrabbak"
