More than 100 victims and relatives of targets of Arab terrorist
attacks have filed an historic suit in Los Angeles against the Bank of
China, which transferred hundreds of millions of dollars to Hamas and
Islamic Jihad between 2004 and 2007. The suit, filed in the Los Angeles
Superior Court Thursday, details how the bank wired money through its
American branches to an account in China used by the terrorist groups.
Israeli counterterrorist personnel met with Chinese officials in
2005 to demand it cease from transferring more money, but the bank,
with the approval of the Chinese government, continued to wire money
for Hamas and Islamic Jihad.
Among the victims and families whose attorneys filed the criminal
and civil suits are the parents of four-year-old Afik Zahavi, who was
killed four years ago in a Kassam rocket attack on Sderot as he
returned home from a pre-school facility
Other plaintiffs include the families of two men who were murdered in a suicide bombing at an Eilat bakery last year

Attorney
Nitsana Darshan-Leitner charged that the Bank of China "even had the
chutzpah to make these funds transfers through its U.S. branches right
under the nose of the Justice Department, despite the fact that Hamas
and the Palestine Islamic Jihad are designated terrorist organizations
and that such wire transfers are a crime under American law. We
expect the Bank of China to now pay very heavily for its support for
terrorism."
