and if they don't. it's their job to find out. It's no different than money laundering, except the groups they help murder many more people. If a bank suspects their client is engaged in illegal activities it's their responsibility to suspend or close the acct. & report the activity to law enforcement. The Arab Bank is based in Jordan, which has diplomatic relations with Israel & now they will have to pay for being an accessory to terrorism.
2. The appeal will go nowhere

Arab Bank is simply the first in a long line of banks that fund and support terror. It also happens to be one the banks that hold part of the billions which Bashar Assad and his father before him have stolen from the Syrian people. The United States has already gone against Swiss banks, banks in Liechtenstein, banks in Monaco and Luxembourg -- we'll find the terrorists hiding their money, and we will take that money and compensate the hundreds of thousands of Jews -- and some others -- who have been victimized by Arab terror. The Second Circuit will uphold the trial court ruling. The United States Supreme Court will either accept certiorari and uphold the ruling, or deny cert, in which case, the verdict against Arab Bank will stand. It's called stare decisis. One or another way, the banks that have funded Arab terrorism and violence against the Jewish people are going to pay, and pay dearly, for their criminality.
