Palestinian scholar Sreemati Mitter has done an enormous amount of research on the freezing of Arab Palestinian bank accounts by Israel following its declaration of Independence, and she is writing a book about it. She gave this talk in Washington DC, where she was introduced by Yusef Munayyer.

Israel not only drove Arab Palestinians off their land and took their homes, it also froze their money, and took it. Sreemati tells the riveting story of how they fought this outrage. They were defeated at turn after turn, until a Jordanian attorney finally found an uncorrupted court venue. He sued and won 50 lawsuits there, at which point Israel finally agreed to pay back ... but couldn't do so now because it had "already spent" the funds it had grabbed! Listen to learn how the victims eventually got their money, plus a bit of interest.
