Americans living in Israel sue State Dept. (UPI)

WASHINGTON, Nov. 27 (UPI) — Two dozen Americans living in Israel filed suit Tuesday against the U.S. State Department, alleging it funded Palestinian terrorism in Gaza and the West Bank.

The civil suit, filed in Washington, alleges the State Department, including Secretary of State Hillary Clinton, ignored congressional safeguards and transparency requirements tied to U.S. aid to the Palestinian Authority, one of the plaintiffs’ attorneys said in a release.

The plaintiffs also claimed the White House hasn’t complied with regulations and reporting requirements for presidential waivers to facilitate emergency funding to Palestinians. Because of this, U.S. funds “have been flowing to terror groups like Hamas, the Palestinian Liberation Organization, the Popular Front for the Liberation of Palestine and the Palestine Liberation Front,” the release said.
