Barack Obama is siding with the Palestinian terrorists over American citizens.
The PJ Tatler reported:
The Obama administration is reportedly mulling an intervention next week in a civil lawsuit involving the Palestinian leadership and American victims of Palestinian terror.
Guess which party the administration is siding with?
The lawsuit was filed over a series of bombings and shootings in or around Jerusalem that killed dozens of U.S. citizens during the second Palestinian intifada a decade ago.
The case was delayed for years while Palestinian lawyers tried to challenge the American court’s jurisdiction, but last February the families won a $218.5 million judgment after a seven-week trial in a Manhattan federal court. The jury found that the PLO and Palestinian Authority were responsible for a string of attacks from 2001 to 2004 that killed 33 and injured hundreds.
Unfortunately for the cash-strapped Palestinians, a 1992 law requires damages in cases such as these to be tripled with interest on the award, pushing it to as much as $1.1 billion.
The judgment amounts to nearly a third of the Palestinian Authority’s annual operating budget.
Palestinian leadership say they are not responsible “for the actions of individuals” who killed or wounded Americans, and are appealing the decision.
The Obama administration has reportedly signaled that it will intervene on behalf of the Palestinians in this case over U.S. citizens.
