Suit by Suicide Bombing Victims Upheld [USA]

Israelis and other foreign nationals can pursue in U.S. courts claims accusing the Jordan-based Arab Bank of promoting Palestinian suicide attacks by funneling Saudi money to bombers' families, a judge ruled....The lawsuit, filed in 2004, claims that Arab Bank aided terrorism by acting as the administrator of an "insurance plan" by the Saudi Committee in Support of the Intifada Al Quds, which paid $5,300 to the families of Palestinian bombers killed in attacks by Hamas, Islamic Jihad and Al Aqsa Martyrs' Brigades. Arab Bank has insisted it had no intention of promoting terrorism and argued the plaintiffs could not link the bank's actions to their injuries or their relatives' deaths.
