"Facebook, [Shurat HaDin's] suit alleges, assists Hamas (in violation of the US Anti-Terrorism Act) in 'recruiting, radicalizing, and instructing terrorists, raising funds, creating fear and carrying out attacks.' The suit seeks to punish Facebook to the tune of $1 billion for failure to censor public communications of which the Israeli government disapproves. ... Shurat HaDin's lawsuits against Facebook ... are, in a word, 'lawfare': Asymmetric warfare carried out through abuse of legal and judicial systems to accomplish military aims." (07/11/16)
