Longtime Trans-Int readers will be familiar with the German aid organization Wadi. Wadi managing director Thomas von der Osten-Sacken was one of the original contributors to the Trans-Int Review and Wadi’s "This is not the Resistance" banner ad graces the right-hand column of this webpage. Wadi runs a number of successful development projects in norther Iraq, one of which has benefited from funding from the Catholic aid agency Caritas. Caritas has, however, now announced its intention to cease this funding. The reason? Von der Osten-Sacken’s opinions on Iran and the Middle East conflict.
