The family of 16-year old American terror victim Daniel Wultz has won a procedural victory that could prove decisive in their civil damages case against the Bank of China for alleged connections with the financing of Hamas and Islamic Jihad terrorist attacks.
Israeli Prime Minister Benjamin Netanyahu’s reputation could be put to the test this month in a landmark court case that could force him to choose between supporting victims of Palestinian terror and risking a diplomatic rift with China.
According to a report in Haaretz, the Israeli government is currently under enormous pressure from Beijing to suppress evidence that the Bank of China laundered money for Islamic Jihad.
The Government of Israel has refused to clarify whether a senior defense official will testify in a lawsuit against Bank of China in the United States. Judge: “The answer leaves me in the dark.”
Israel’s closest friends are publicly voicing concerns about Prime Minister Benjamin Netanyahu’s wavering on a commitment to allow a former intelligence officer to provide testimony in an American court about the Bank of China’s role in a 2006 terrorist attack that killed Daniel Wultz.
