Israel, and the Jewish community at large, is beset by a dangerous international campaign utilizing new strategies to delegitimize the Jewish state. Unable to defeat the IDF militarily or weaken the population through persistent terrorism, extremist groups and rogue regimes have embarked upon a global campaign to demonize and isolate Israel, casting it as a pariah state in the United Nations, as well as academic institutions.
Shurat HaDin is leading the fight against those calling for boycotts and sanctions against the Jewish state, and those engaged in the perilous international campaign to delegitimize the Jewish State and challenge its right to exist.
Instead of waiting for another attack, Shurat HaDin takes the battle to Israel’s decriers themselves. Utilizing cutting edge litigation, in which there are frequently no applicable precedents, Shurat HaDin is using ingenuity to apply domestic and international law to fight current and potential threats:
Successfully blocking a hostile flotilla intent on breaching the Israeli coastal blockade of Gaza by warning maritime insurance carriers and a satellite communication company that providing services to the flotilla could subject them to legal liability for aiding terrorists.
Monitoring the rampant anti-Semitism and anti-Zionism in academic institutions by informing the school of its potential civil and criminal liability for tolerating an environment of intimidation and hostility that fails to protect Jewish and Israeli students from anti-Semitic harassment.
Using the legal system to counter boycotts against Israeli companies and academics by seeking to remove the tax exempt status of organizations that promote boycotts
Filing lawsuits under relatively unchartered waters of the US Anti-Terrorism Act, Alien Torts Statute, and torture victim protection conventions, civil rights laws, consumer fraud statutes, the IRS codes, state and federal education laws, civil RICO and whistleblower statutes.
Filing amicus curiae petitions in Israel’s High Court of Justice on behalf of the IDF and intelligence branches.
