Clinton and State Dept. Being Sued

A lawsuit was filed on behalf of 24 US citizens living in Israel against Secretary of State Hillary Clinton and the State Department in Washington by the Israel Law Center. The Law Center in Tel Aviv is a group which specializes in fighting terrorist organizations and the regimes that support them.

Clinton and the state Dept. are being sued for allegedly allowing American aid money meant for  Palestinian Authority to be used by terror groups like Hamas accusing the defendants of having “authorized, sanctioned, encouraged, and/or facilitated funding to the Palestinian Authority without imposing the controls and oversight mandated by federal statute,” especially the Palestinian Anti-Terrorism Act of 2006.

As a result, US taxpayers dollars ending up in the hands of terror groups like Hamas and the Popular Front for the Liberation of Palestine and other individuals and groups barred from federal funds, violating federal statues.

The lawsuit demands to stop all funding to Palestinian Authority, the United Nations Relief and Works Agency for Palestine Refugees in the Near East (UNRWA) and other groups are stopped until the defendants “are ready and able to fully comply with federal prohibitions against support for terrorism.”

The State Department would not confirm that the lawsuit had been filed, adding that if it had it would be a matter for the Justice Department.

If the Justice Department is involved, we all know how far this lawsuit will go……….file 13.
