Arab Bank liable for terror attacks in Israel on 300 Americans, Brooklyn jury finds

After a five-week trial in federal court, the plaintiffs — bombing victims or their relatives— convinced panelists that Arab Bank either knowingly or with willful blindness transferred millions of dollars to charities controlled by Hamas and to families of suicide bombers between 2001 and 2004.
