Shurat HaDin—Israel Law Center is an
Israeli based civil right organization and world leader in combating the
terrorist organizations and the regimes that support them through
lawsuits litigated in courtrooms around the world. Fighting for the
rights of hundreds of terror victims, Shurat HaDin seeks to bankrupt the
terror groups and grind their criminal activities to a halt - one
lawsuit at a time.
Established in 2003 and based in Tel-Aviv,
Shurat HaDin works together with western intelligence agencies and
volunteer lawyers around the world to file legal actions on behalf of
victims of terror.
Following the model pioneered by the Alabama-based Southern Poverty Law
Center—a non-profit legal center that over the last four decades has
successfully confronted and shut down racist groups across
America—Shurat HaDin seeks to bring terrorism to a halt through legal
action. Shurat HaDin represents hundreds of victims in cases against
Hamas, Islamic Jihad, Hezbullah, the Palestinian Authority, Iran, Syria,
North Korea, and numerous financial institutions such as UBS AG, the
Lebanese-Canadian Bank, American Express Bank, and the Bank of China.
