Lawsuit accuses Trump and other US officials of crimes against Palestinians – Arabnews

| February 29, 2020

WASHINGTON: A federal lawsuit filed in Washington, DC, last week by 13 Palestinian and American activists accuses US President Donald Trump and his Middle East adviser Jared Kushner of violating Palestinian civil and human rights.Also named in the suit are Israeli Prime Minister Benjamin Netanyahu; New York Gov. Andrew Cuomo; Miriam Adelson, the wife of billionaire settler financier Sheldon Adelson; Israeli lobby group the The American Israel Public Affairs Committee (AIPAC); and 13 others.Attorney Martin McMahon said the action targets Trumps Deal of the Century, along with laws introduced in 28 American states that illegally deny Americans the right to boycott Israel.Filed on behalf of 13 plaintiffs, including Palestinians living in America and in occupied Palestine, the lawsuit argues they were stripped of their legal and civil rights not only Israel but by American officials and activists empowered by a biased media and political system.I know the system in this country is biased against Palestinian rights, but I also know that the rule of law defends those rights, McMahon told Arab News. With the power of the rule of law, we will prevail.McMahons lawsuit was filed during African American heritage month, which recognizes the civil rights struggles of black Americans who were enslaved and segregated under illegal laws and policies that stripped them of land rights, denied them citizenship and treated them as second-class citizens.
