B’nai B’rith International and The B’nai B’rith Anti-Defamation Commission have hailed and welcomed the decision by the jury in a New York federal court against the Palestinian Authority and the PLO holding them liable for terror attacks that killed 33 Americans and injured more than 450 during the Second Intifada.

Dan Mariaschin, Executive Vice President of B’nai B’rith International and Dr. Dvir Abramovich, Chairman of the B’nai B’rith Anti-Defamation Commission issued the following statement:

“Those who commit horrific acts of terrorism and those who sponsor such evil must be held accountable and this decision sends a very strong and timely message. In an era of rising terrorism, this brave verdict sets a legal and moral standard for the often onerous pursuit of justice against perpetrators. Moreover, this verdict is a symbolic victory for the families of those Americans killed by the PA and the PLO in the past, such as the U.S. Ambassador to Sudan Cleo Noel, Jr., who was taken hostage and shot by PLO militants in 1973.”
