    Israeli court sentenced the Palestinian Authority to pay $116 million!!

    NO COMMENTS
    JERUSALEM (CNN) -- An Israeli court has ruled the family of an American couple killed in a terror attack can collect $116 million in damages from the Palestinian Authority.

    The ruling could set a precedent for a number of suits that have been filed against the Palestinian Authority in American courts.

    The court in Jerusalem ruled the Israeli government can legally implement a 2004 U.S. court ruling that found the Palestinian Authority liable. However, the ruling does not explain how the plaintiffs would collect the money.

    The Palestinian Authority's pleading in the case was not made public, but an attorney for the plaintiffs summarized it for CNN. The attorney said the Palestinian Authority asked the court to throw out the case because an unfavorable judgment would make the organization liable for such large sums from this and other cases that it would go bankrupt.

    Monday's ruling is the latest turn in a long legal case brought by the relatives of Yaron and Efrat Unger, who were killed in 1996 when Hamas gunmen attacked their car in Israel.

    Family members sued the Palestinian Authority and the Palestine Liberation Organization in an American court because both victims were American citizens. In its petition, the family argued that the Palestinian Authority bore ultimate responsibility for the attack because the Hamas attackers were controlled and assisted by elements within the Palestinian Authority.

    The case ultimately went to the U.S. Supreme Court, where in 2004 the justices ordered the Palestinian Authority and the PLO to pay the family.

    After the judgment, the family petitioned the Israeli government to enforce the American ruling.

    In his ruling, Israel District Court Judge Aharon Farkash hinted at the Palestinian Authority's arguments that a ruling favorable to the plaintiffs would bankrupt the organization.

    "How can one accept the claim that a legal ruling should not be enforced because it might hurt the perpetrator financially?" he wrote. "Should we not punish convicted persons for no other reason than that it might cause their bankruptcy?"

    The family's attorney acknowledged many hurdles remain before a judgment can be collected.

    "The decision is important because it means that the U.S. judgment can be enforced in Israel," said Mordechay Heller, an attorney for the Unger family. "However, we expect the Palestinians to appeal, and there is still a long road ahead of us."

    Repeated attempts to reach the Palestinian Authority for comment were not successful.

    Nice. But first the PA has to collect that money from their EU donors.

    The Israeli court now has authority over foreign governments?

    Can Iran have the same authority over Israel? Can Palestine?

    If it weren't for the Americans funding and arming the Israelis, Palestinians would not still be refugees in their own land. The audacity of asking them to pay for terror attacks. Look at the missiles that American largesse rains on their children everyday

    Just kick those guys in the butt.

    how can you be a refugee on your own land? being a refugee means you dont have any land at all.

    By the way do you know about the Palestinian economic system?

    They're the only gunpowder_standard in the world, they would have backed it in paper but they couldn't afford the ink.

    They really started crying when everybody cut off the aid a year or two ago, they couldn't even pay the government salaries.

    When will Palestinian families be able to petition the US Supreme Court or an Israeli court for compensation, for family members killed by Israeli rocket attacks, destruction of property, or any other legitimate charges, like the charge levelled at the PA as above?
    Would that be "never, ever"?
    How many hundreds of millions of $US, are individual Arab lives or houses worth, where "justice" is concerned? Or is justice, measured in hundreds of millions in reparation, only available to Americans living in illegal settlements? Why does Israel even bother to mention international laws that Arabs are breaking, when it ignores them too?

    In which case, Americans living illegally on Palestinian land who are killed, have all the justice on their side, Palestinians have "no cause for complaint"? They certainly have little opportunity to petition any court, that tells itself its job is to "deliver justice".

    I would advise the PLO to counter-sue, for every illegally destroyed house (100 mil each), and for every civilian casualty of Israeli aggression (terrorism with another name), and targeted assassinations (say, 120 mill per civilian illegally killed). Demand justice from the same courts (who will no doubt collapse with laughter at the idea).
