Palestinian Authority Activists Sue for Billions from Sheldon Adelson, Pastor John Hagee, Ahava and More
A group of Palestinian Authority activists hope to win billions from United States supporters of post-1967 development in Judea and Samaria.
They’re suing Jewish and Christian business tycoons, religious groups and companies involved in Israeli communities developed after the Six-Day War, and hoping to reap $34.5 billion.
The lawsuit was filed in the Federal District Court of Washington D.C. this week by PA activist Bassem Tamimi and 35 others, according to Qatar-based Al Jazeera.
Unsurprisingly, the Arab network did not name the other plaintiffs in the suit, nor did it reveal details about the charges leveled against the defendants.
The trial is not expected to start until at least five years from now – if at all.
Named in the lawsuit are: Las Vegas casino magnate Sheldon Adelson Real estate tycoon Irving Moskowitz World-renowned Pastor John Hagee Christian Friends of Israeli Communities Dead Sea cosmetics firm Ahava Industrial mega business Israel Chemicals Ltd
All of the above have allegedly had some type of involvement in communities located on territory claimed by the Palestinian Authority to be land the entity wishes to take for its hoped-for independent future state.Hana Levi Julian
