Landmark Terror Finance Trial against Jordan’s Arab Bank Begins


Nearly a decade later and after a botched attempt to get the US government or the Supreme Court to cancel the case, the American victims of Hamas and their families have finally managed to bring about the most important terror finance case ever to go to trial in American history.

The trial against Jordan’s Arab Bank, the largest bank in the Middle East, is set to begin today. Suing are 297 US citizens whose loved ones have been killed or injured during the second Palestinian Intifada which took place between the years 2000-2005 and claimed the lives of some 4,000 people.
