Nitsana Darshan Leitner: The Financial Battle Against Terror Organizations is Necessary to Weaken the Terror Groups
Nitsana Darshan Leitner, the president of Shurat HaDin, is a strong advocate of weakening the terror groups through financial warfare. Her Israeli Law Center, Shurat HaDin, a non-government organization, dedicated to bringing justice for families of terror victims and fighting for Jewish right worldwide, was established to destabilize the terror financing structure of terror groups.
As per Darshan Leitner, the terror groups such as Hamas and ISIS could organize their terror attacks against Israel due to their billion-dollar financing from terror sponsors in powerful countries. She further adds that if they can sever the ties of these terror groups from their financial funding channels, they can effectively cause the collapse of these terror structures. Shurat HaDin has filed many lawsuits against the terror-sponsoring organizations and countries that have been financially supporting these terror groups’ terror attacks. Darshan-Leitner emphasizes that it is crucial to cut off the oxygen (money) that enables the terror organizations to sustain their existence via the legal fight against terror financing.
Shurat HaDin has represented hundreds of terror victims in legal lawsuits against terror groups and their supporters in the past. They have also won numerous cases and recovered millions of dollars as compensation for the families of terror victims in Israel. Darshan-Leitner has become a beacon of hope for the Israelis who have lost their loved ones to violent terror attacks.
Under the guidance of Nitsana Darshan-Leitner, Shurat HaDin has also led a range of anti-terrorism campaigns against those trying to undermine Jewish rights and leading anti-Israeli movements. Shurat HaDin continues to challenge the terrorist groups, violent inciters, and persistent Israel haters in the courtroom to protect the rights of innocent Israelis. Shurat HaDin is also one of the first Jewish organizations who recognized the upcoming ICC threat to the Jewish state and took action to protect Israel by leading a campaign against ICC since 2015.
Darshan-Leitner recognizes that the battle against the terror groups is a never-ending battle. But she emphasizes that the best way to combat terror organizations is through weakening their financial support by targeting their funding channels. Her Israel Law Center in Tel-Aviv, Shurat HaDin, has secured several victories in the courtroom since its inception and has successfully become the leader in the global fight against terrorism on the financial front under the dedicated and extraordinary leadership of Nitsana Darshan Leitner.
