JNS.org – An Israeli legal rights NGO on Thursday threatened to place liens against any planes that the American aerospace giant Boeing plans to sell to Iran.

Iran on Tuesday announced an agreement with Boeing that would be the first aircraft deal with an American company since the 1979 Islamic Revolution. Boeing intends to sell Iran about 100 new airplanes, but the deal is awaiting U.S. government approval.

The Shurat HaDin – Israel Law Center represents families of victims of Iranian-sponsored terror attacks, seeking to secure financial compensation for the families that has been mandated by U.S. courts but has not yet been paid out by Iran. Shurat HaDin said that Iran must pay these debts before it can purchase Boeing’s planes.

“It is shocking that a company like Boeing would enter into a business deal with the outlaw regime in Tehran,” said Shurat HaDin’s director, Nitsana Darshan-Leitner, the Jerusalem Post reported.

Some members of the U.S. Congress are also publicly opposing the Boeing-Iran deal, warning that American planes could be used to support terrorism. The agreement with Boeing is part of the trend of warming business ties between Iran and world powers following last year’s nuclear deal.

    Obama presents a serious threat to Israel in the last months of his reign. There will be no constraints on him and he will issue executive powers to accomplish his goals which seem to be to weaken the US to the greatest extent possible, to weaken ties with allies, and those we can deal with and to strengthen those who hate the west and the US. The Us backed arab spring, Hillarys’ baby has totally destabilized the ME and rendered any peace for Israel impossible

    Praise G-d for Shurat HaDin!
