In yet another clear demonstration of the nexus between Shariah Finance and Jihadist terrorism, 85 people identified as victims of Hezbollah rocket strikes in Israel in 2006 have sued Iran’s leading banks in a U.S. court. The suit in U.S. District Court in Washington seeks $1 billion in compensatory damages from Iran’s Central Bank and Bank Saderat.

SFW readers may recall that Bank Saderat, which has been declared a terrorist entity by the US Treasury Department, is, according to The Banker, the second largest Shariah-compliant financial institution in the world, behind Iran’s Bank Melli.
