Arab Bank Mounts Its Defense in Landmark Terrorist Financing Case


Recommended Posts

The chairman of Arab Bank, Sabih Al-Masri, is expected to be the first defense witness as a landmark terrorism trial begins its third week in New York federal court.


Three hundred U.S. nationals are suing Arab Bank, claiming it knowingly provided services to terrorists and their financiers in violation of U.S. anti-terrorism law. The plaintiffs and their family members were injured or killed in terrorist attacks while visiting Israel between 2000 and 2005 during the second intifada or Palestinian uprising.


As Arab Bank begins laying out its defense, it argues that the plaintiffs may have shown Hamas to be horrible criminals, but that Hamas is not the defendant; Arab Bank is.Scissors-32x32.png
