Israelis sue Iran for a cool billion in US court

85 Israelis who were wounded by Hezbullah rockets during the Second Lebanon War in 2006 have sued Iran's central bank and some of its commercial banks in an American court, charging that Iran financed Hezbullah's belligerence.
This is the suit of its kind against the Iranian banking system. The suit claims that Iran supplied Hezbollah with more than $50 million in the years leading up to the war with the intention of empowering the organization to fire at Israeli and American targets.
Hmmm. Another nuisance suit to keep them broke and busy. Let's hope the price of oil drops.

Hmmm. I wonder whether they can add on the cost of Haifa business plans interrupted the summer of '06 by those rockets. We were there, had a slew of meetings planned and had to cancel the whole thing because Technion closed. BTW, the people I was going to meet just transferred their work to their houses and kept moving forward. Didn't miss a beat. Impressive.
