REPORT: U.S. State Dept. occludes law that compensates victims of terrorism

In an uncharacteristic move for the most pro-Israel administration, US Secretary of State Mike Pompeo appears to be working hard to obstruct an October law that would compensate families of American victims of Palestinian terrorism, according to web-based political journalism website Talking Points Memo.



If the Trump administration is viewed as one of the most pro-Israel administrations ever, why would it reportedly bend over backward to block a new law that would advance compensating the families of American victims of Palestinian terrorism from the Second Intifada?

Last week, Matt Lee of Talking Points Memo reported that the Trump administration, led by US Secretary of State Mike Pompeo, is working hard to repeal, delay or amend an October law on the issue. Continue Reading »

Israelis go into high gear, when Obama slows Federal chase for Hezbollah bank accounts

Israel’s Mossad and an Israeli law NGO were going after Hezbollah’s finances before the US’s Operation Cassandra, but when Obama slowed the investigation down, agents turned to the Israeli NGO to keep the heat on the terrorists.



Long before the US ramped up the pressure against Hezbollah’s financial network in 2006, and then dialed it down in 2009-2010, the Mossad and an Israeli NGO were going after the terror group’s monetary oxygen.

In fact, even when the US returned to taking a backseat, Shurat Hadin – Israel Law Center – kept going after a major Hezbollah allied Lebanese bank and connected banks, winning a major US court decision in 2012. Continue Reading »

Trump didn’t but Israel Law Center may bring down the Iran Nuclear Deal… and Boeing

Nitsana Darshan-Leitner, founder of the Tel Aviv-based Israel Law Center, found a ‘back door’ to force Tehran to pay settlement in a past terrorism case, but in the process, may kill Boeing’s multi-billion dollar deal with Iran, and also nullify Iran’s nuclear agreement with the P5+1.



When the landmark nuclear deal was signed in 2015 between the world superpowers and Iran, one of the big winners was, of course, Tehran. Billions of dollars, frozen throughout years of economic sanctions, were finally released, providing a much-needed boost to Iran’s failing economy.

Another winner was Boeing. In one of the appendices of the deal, aerospace companies, primarily Boeing and Airbus, were given special permission to start doing business with Iran. Continue Reading »
