Israel blacklists 163 foreign charities suspected of supporting terrorism
Preventing terrorism funds from infiltrating Israel is one of the goals of the Israel Money Laundering and Terror Financing Prohibition Authority.
The Israel Money Laundering and Terror Financing Prohibition Authority has located 163 organizations contaminated with funds related to terrorism over the past three years, and issued specific orders prohibiting receiving money from them, Defense Ministry data shows.
Preventing terrorism funds from infiltrating Israel is one of the authority’s stated goals, no matter for what purpose the funds are being transferred. The organization’s investigators are in contact with similar international organizations in the UN and the United States, and their list totals 352 organizations. Bans issued by the authority are signed by either the defense minister or the security cabinet.
