The Times of Israel has an interesting article posted today about a lawsuit filed by Americans living in Israel who are suing the US government for funding HAMAS, a Jihadist terrorist organization.
The lawsuit names the State Department and the White House for essentially looking the other way by not ensuring that US aid to Palestinians doesn’t end up in the hands of HAMAS.
Here is a link to the lawsuit itself:

Americans in Israel sue United States for funding Palestinian terrorism
State Department, White House ignored transparency requirements in delivering Palestinian aid, allowing some of the money to flow to the likes of Hamas, plaintiffs claim
A group of 24 Americans living in Israel, some of them victims of terror, on Tuesday filed a civil action lawsuit against the United States government over what they claim is its funding of Palestinian terrorism in the West Bank and the Gaza Strip. The plaintiffs were being represented by the Tel Aviv-based Shurat HaDin – Israel Law Center, a legal advocacy group that combats terror organizations.
The lawsuit, which was filed in Washington, DC, contends that the State Department and Secretary of State Hillary Clinton ignored Congressional safeguards and transparency requirements attached to US aid to the Palestinian Authority, thus allowing for the funneling of funds to Hamas, the Popular Front for the Liberation of Palestine (PFLP), and the Palestine Liberation Front.
