Throughout its history, B'nai B'rith has been an unequivocal advocate of justice for the victims of and those that have lost loved ones to terror attacks.
News was welcomed by B'nai B'rith International and The B’nai B’rith Anti-Defamation Commission (Australia) that a federal court jury in New York found the PA, PLO liable for the wrongful death of 33 Americans during the Second Intifada.
Read the joint statement from Dan Mariaschin, International Executive Vice President, and Dr. Dvir Abramovich, Chairman of the Anti-Defamation Commission, in an article in J-Wire:
"Those who commit horrific acts of terrorism and those who sponsor such evil must be held accountable and this decision sends a very strong and timely message. In an era of rising terrorism, this brave verdict sets a legal and moral standard for the often onerous pursuit of justice against perpetrators.
"Moreover, this verdict is a symbolic victory for the families of those Americans killed by the PA and the PLO in the past, such as the U.S. Ambassador to Sudan Cleo Noel, Jr., who was taken hostage and shot by PLO militants in 1973."
