Bereaved Israelis who lost loved ones in a terrorist shooting at the Merkaz Harav Yeshiva have hit the Bank of China with a billion-dollar lawsuit. The families, represented by the Israel Law Center (Shurat Hadin), say the bank helped Hamas get the funding that allowed it to keep attacking Israelis.

“The banking giant knowingly assisted the Islamic group to carry out this Jerusalem attack with the full approval of the Chinese government,” attorney Nitsana Darshan-Leitner charged.

China will do anything they can to poke Japan and the US in the eye

Japan, because of their past wars and Japan’s invasions

USA, because the USA is at the top and is the country who can most frustrate their desires
