Canadian Boat To Gaza Sued By Hamas Terror Victim
They've ignored the warnings of the United Nations to stay away. They've disregarded the stance of their own government, which calls their flotilla "provocative" and "unhelpful". But will the organizers of the Canadian Boat to Gaza and Alternatives International ignore a lawsuit?
Canadian-Israeli Cherna Rosenberg a resident of Siderot and Ontario and is just the first to file a suit against this bunch. It's really not that much of a stetch to expect a class-action suit by every resident of Sderot, which has been bombarded by Hamas-fired mortars over the years.
Normally, I don't consider legal briefs all that entertaining, but I highly recommend reading the statement of claim. It begins:
1. The Plaintiff claims:
a. damages in the amount of $1,000,000.00 for trauma and injuries suffered as a consequence of the Defendants’ conspiracy and trespass to the person;
b. damages for lost rent, the cost of renovations and relocation expenses in the amount of $20,000;
c. an interim, interlocutory and permanent injunction prohibiting the Defendants from continuing to raise funds, purchasing equipment or supplies, and purchasing or renting a vessel for the purpose of delivering goods or funds to the Gaza Strip
d. an interim, interlocutory and permanent injunction prohibiting the Defendants from sending goods, funds or any other material support, directly or indirectly, to Hamas or any of its representatives, and/or from aiding and abetting Hamas by assisting in bringing imports and exports to and from the Gaza Strip;
e. a Declaration that the actions of the Defendants in attempting to provide supplies and to otherwise directly or indirectly aid Hamas or any other recognized terrorist group constitutes material support of terrorism;
f. pre and post judgment interest on all amounts awarded as set out under the Courts of Justice Act; and
g. costs of this action on a substantial indemnity basis
Finally, lawfare I can get behind. Sue the pants off these creeps, Cherna.
