Petition wants U.N. reparations for Israel (for the war Israel started!)
Pro-Israel advocates launched a petition calling on the United Nations to provide reparations to Israel for damage caused by Hezbollah.
The petition says the “U.N. Security Council failed to discharge its obligation. It allowed Hezbollah to entrench itself in southern Lebanon and to spread its terror to the people of Lebanon.”
As of Thursday afternoon, the petition had garnered more than 34,000 signatures.
Court allows “Holocaust” legal action
NEW YORK (Reuters) – A U.S. appeals court on Thursday overturned a ruling that had stopped Holocaust survivors from seeking more money from a fund set up by German companies to compensate victims of forced and slave labor in World War Two.
Law firm Cohen, Milstein, Hausfeld & Toll said a lower court had deemed the dispute a political or diplomatic matter out of reach of U.S. courts, but the 3rd U.S. Circuit Court of Appeals now ruled that U.S. legal action could go ahead.
According to the appeals court judgment, Holocaust victims and their families had been prevented from seeking compensation for decades after World War Two by various international agreements and treaties.
