Shurat HaDin – Israel Law Center
 While terrorist groups conceal their methods of operation and rely upon the assistance of outlawed regimes and rogue states for material support, protection and other resources,they continue to remain vulnerable in one area: their wallets. Without funds, terroristgroups cannot recruit members, buy weapons nor carry out training. Without financialsupport, terrorist organizations cannot create a civil infrastructure to garner popularsupport nor organize and carry out their criminal activities. While previously, terror moneyflowed freely through Western financialinstitutions, front charities andapathetic states, one organization hassucceeded in obstructing the terroristgroups and forcing them to constantlysearch for new means of financing their violent crimes: Shurat HaDin.
Bankrupting Terrorism
Shurat HaDin
– Israel Law Centeris a world leader in the fight to stopterrorist funding. By using legal actionand civil lawsuits, Shurat HaDin assistsin bankrupting terror groups andgrinding their activity to a halt. Basedin Tel Aviv, and directed by Attorney
Nitsana Darshan-Leitner
,
ShuratHaDin
works with western intelligenceagencies and a network of volunteerlawyers around the world to file legal actions on behalf of terror victims.
Shurat HaDin
 has successfully disrupted the terrorist groups and helped their victims to strike back atthose responsible for devastating their lives.
Shurat HaDin
follows the pioneering model employed by the Alabama-based SouthernPoverty Law Center, a non-profit organization that for decades has effectively confrontedand shut down racist groups across the United States. We represent hundreds of terror victims in legal actions against Hamas, Islamic Jihad, Hezbollah, North Korea, the PalestinianAuthority, Iran, and Syria. We have also taken legal measures against numerous financialinstitutions used by the terrorists, such as UBS AG, the Lebanese-Canadian Bank, AmericanExpress Bank, and the Bank of China.

Shurat HaDin is rallying the terror victimsand the larger world community to do whatgenerations of Jews were prohibited fromdoing – striking back at the Islamic haters.
Our Objectives
Stopping
the flow of money to terrorists through the use of civil suits and other legal means.
Achieving
 justice and compensation for terror victims from terrorist organizations, theirsponsors, and the financial institutions that aid and abet their criminal activities.
Combating
the global effort by Israel's enemies to de-legitimize, boycott and wage "lawfare"against the Jewish state.
 Training
the next generation of activist attorneys and legal advocates to fight for the rights of the worldwide Jewish community and Israel.
Leading
the private sector's war on terrorism. We tend to think of the fight against terrorism as a task that falls mainly on the shoulders of electedofficials and governments, whether it is their law enforcement, military, diplomatic or intelligenceagencies. Nonetheless,
Shurat HaDin
has proven that there is one area where private citizenscan uniquely play a leading role - stopping the funds available to the enemies of Israel and the Jewish People. Since the 1990s Western countries, and especially the United States, have legislatedlaws making it possible for terror victims to sue the regimes that sponsor terror, banks that transferfunds to terror groups, front charities established to assist the extremist groups, and even theterrorists themselves. Thus,
Shurat HaDin's
legal campaigns have empowered the terror victimsand their families to fight back.
Safeguarding the Jewish State
In addition to our litigation on behalf of terror victims,
Shurat HaDin
is at the forefront of thebattle for Israeli security and safeguards Jewish rights worldwide.
Shurat HaDin
joined forceswith the Israeli Navy, the IDF and the Prime Minister's Office, and utilized legal actions to blockthe planned Gaza Flotilla from breaching the Israeli coastal blockade of Hamas-controlled GazaStrip. We are engaged in the struggle against the Islamic Authority's (Waqf) destruction of ancient Jewish artifacts on Jerusalem's Temple Mount. We act on behalf of IDF soldiers accused of warcrimes or employing unnecessary force against Palestinian rioters, and fight to secure the releaseof Jewish captives around the world. We are filing lawsuits to combat anti-Semitic organizations,and leading the fight against those calling for boycotts and sanctions against the Jewish state.
