The Israel Law Center in Tel Aviv, Shurat HaDin, is going on the offensive.
The Israeli human rights group is warning maritime insurance companies and Immarsat, the satellite company that provides guidance systems and communications services for the boats in the upcoming mega-flotilla, that they will be legally liable for any future terrorist attacks perpetrated by Hamas.
Pajamas Media - Shurat HaDin — the Israel Law Center in Tel Aviv — has been in the forefront of the legal battle against terrorism for some time, instituting lawsuits in favor of the victims of terror throughout the world. Many of these suits have been successful and have broken new ground.
Recently they have turned their attention to the Gaza Flotillas in an attempt to place legal restraints on these enterprises, which are in reality anti-Israeli propaganda and Hamas terror supply operations, masquerading as relief ships for an “impoverished” and “blockaded” Gaza.
Another Flotilla has been planned for this summer. Shurat HaDin responded by sending letters to maritime insurance companies. These letters placed the companies on notice concerning the Gaza Flotilla and warned them that if they provide insurance (a necessary component in the effort to smuggle contraband to the terrorists) that they themselves will be legally liable for any future terrorist attacks perpetrated by Hamas.
Sunday Shurat HaDin announced that they have sent similar warning letters to Immarsat, the satellite company that provides guidance systems and communications services for these boats, including the flotilla flagship Mavi Marmara. They too would be liable for massive damages and criminal prosecution should terror result from contraband carried by these boats.
