Israeli court rules that terror victims can sue PA/Fatah

In a positive development, the Israeli court has followed up on a US ruling that victims of terrorism can sue the PA/Fatah for what they've been through:
Jerusalem District Court Judge Aharon Farkash ruled on Monday that it was possible to implement a 2004 US court ruling, according to which the Palestinian Authority must pay compensations of more than $116 million to terror victims' families.

In July 2004, a US court ruled that the Palestinian Authority was to pay some $116 million to the relatives of Yaron and Efrat Unger who were killed in a 1996 terror attack. But when the family asked authorities to enforce the court ruling in Israel, the Palestinian Authority objected, saying that paying the high compensations would lead to its financial collapse.

The Jerusalem District Court rejected the appeal made by the Palestinian Authority not to enforce the American ruling because the implementation would destroy it financially. The Palestinian Liberation Organization and the Palestinian Authority said that payment of such high sums would have public, political, financial and security implications for Israeli citizens.

They claimed paying the high sum would empty the Palestinian Authority's coffers and would lead to more lawsuits against the Palestinian Authority.

The petition, filed in the US because the victims were American citizens, argued the Palestinian Authority was responsible for the attack carried out by Hamas because the terrorists were controlled by the Palestinian Authority and were assisted by the Palestinian security apparatuses.

Judge Farkash said that legally, the US court ruling qualified as a verdict that was enforceable in Israel. He added that the Palestinian claim that the ruling would lead to its financial collapse was not proven, and seemed unrealistic.
No matter what the turnout from such a development, they deserve collapse, and whatever else they get. The PA/Fatah is simply coming up with that pathetic excuse and sob story because they don't want to pay for their crimes, and those they allowed either. For their sins, they should be sued into the ground.
