Members of a Long Island family testified Monday that the Sept. 11 attacks and its lesson that terror can happen anywhere persuaded them to cancel a trip to Disney World and instead visit Jerusalem in early 2002, when four of them were seriously injured in a suicide bombing.
Mark Sokolow, a lawyer, and his wife, Rena, testified as lead plaintiffs in a $1 billion lawsuit in Manhattan federal court against Palestinian authorities for six attacks in Israel from 2002 to 2004 that killed or wounded Americans. Their three daughters, two of them hurt in the blast, testified as well.

The PA has deep pockets. In keeping with the Left’s definition of fairness, it’s only fair that the PA compensate these people, even if (fat chance) they had nothing to do with the attacks.
If they can recover and collect (we keep hearing about the USSnakeDept often interferring with Americans collecting from foreign govts or, in this case, terrorist gangsters that have harmed or maimed or killed or stolen from American citizens)..
but yes yes yes,
more power to these people...and may they entirely bankrupt the damned ‘pali authority’ == that will mean less weapons and ammo for them in future to kill other people’s children with
good good luck in court!
