ZOA: US Must Prosecute Palestinian Terrorists

From the JPost:

The Zionist Organization of America has called on US Attorney-General Eric Holder to indict and prosecute Palestinian terrorists who harmed American citizens in Israel, The Jerusalem Post learned on Thursday.

In a letter sent on Wednesday to Holder, ZOA chairman Dr. Michael Goldblatt and five other senior members of the US-based Israel advocacy group ask the US attorney-general to enforce strict anti-terror laws and prosecute terrorists freed as part of Israel’s deal with Hamas to release kidnapped IDF soldier Gilad Schalit.

Under the 1991 US Anti-Terror Act, the United States may prosecute foreign nationals who perpetrate terrorist acts against American citizens, even if those acts are not carried out on US soil. However, for prosecution to proceed, that law requires the written certification of the US attorney-general that the alleged offense was intended to “coerce, intimidate or retaliate against a government or civilian population.”

However, to date the US has not indicted or prosecuted any Palestinian terrorists.

Wait a minute – maybe Holder could gives arms to the terrorists and trace them…. Never mind.
