Jews push PLO to independence

In the Ungar and other cases, Israelis who are also foreign nationals filed suits against the PLO seeking damages for terrorist attacks on their relatives. Similar cases have been won in Israel.

Though the awarded amounts run into hundreds of millions of dollars, actual collections are minuscule.

The court losses push the PA to proclaim independence, which allows it sovereign immunity. The US courts have disregarded sovereign immunity in a number of cases against terrorist-sponsor states such as Iran, but the burden of proof in such cases is much higher.
