IDF Seizes 5,000,000 NIS in Terrorist Blood Money

Overnight between Tuesday and Wedesday of this week, security forces conducted searches at the houses and offices of 13 moneychangers in Jenin, Nablus, Tulkarm and Ramallah who are suspected of being involved in the financing of terror activity. Approximately five million NIS and 170 Dinars as well as large quantities of data were seized. (Using the Universal Currency Converter that's about USD $1.2 million) The IDF videotaped the seizures and about halfway through, you can see that some of the other currencies included US Dollars. In the hands of the terrorists.

Granted, moneychangers as they are called in Israel (it's basically legalized money laundering and goes on everywhere in the Middle East) do get dollars in exchange for just about everything, but it's disheartening to see Abe Lincoln on this video.

This is not the first seizure of monies intended for terrorist uses. The moneychangers receive money and other funds from the Syrian headquarters of the Hamas, Islamic Jihad and Hezbollah terror organizations and transfer them to Palestinian terror organizations located in Judea, Samaria and Gaza. The funds, most of which came from Iran, were intended to support terror attacks by helping terrorists build infrastructure and acquire the weapons, explosives, suicide belts, rockets and other equipment with which to murder and maime Israel's citizens. Again, check the stats to see how many of the injured or killed are civilians, then tell me if cutting them off at the bank is worth it.
