Press Release


Sharon and Bush sued

On Wednesday July 17,2002 at 12:00 p.m. attorney Stanley L. Cohen will hold a press conference in conjunction with Solidarity International at the National Press Club in Washington D.C. to announce the filing of a law suit against, among others, Israel and Prime Minister Ariel Sharon, President George Bush and Secretary of State Colin Powell, several arms manufacturers in the United

States and a number of U.S. based churches and synagogues that have supported settlements in the West Bank.

The suit on behalf of a class of Palestinian Americans who reside in or have visited the Occupied Territories charges the defendants with a series of individual acts and conspiracies-- some dating as far back as 1982 and the massacre at Sabra and Shatila in Lebanon--will seek damages and injunctive relief for, among other things, genocide, crimes against humanity, war crimes and racketeering. The plaintiffs will include Palestinian Americans who have been killed, injured, and tortured; who have been denied medical treatment; whose businesses and homes have been destroyed and whose homes and lands have been taken to establish illegal settlements in Palestine.

Copies of the complaint and supporting affidavits will be available at the press conference.
