    Financial Intelligence Units in 13 western nations are looking to more effectively coordinate on financial intelligence and information sharing, and created the task force shortly after Hamas’ Oct. 7 incursion into Israel, according to a U.S. Treasury statement.

    The task force members emphasized “the importance of the private sector in achieving these goals, particularly in identifying and mitigating terrorists’ use of the global financial system,” the Treasury statement said.

    The U.S. State Department designated Hamas a terrorist group in 1997. The European Union and other Western countries also consider it a terrorist organization.

    Co-chaired by Germany, Israel, the Netherlands, and the U.S., the task force includes Australia, Canada, Estonia, France, Liechtenstein, Luxembourg, New Zealand, Switzerland and the U.K.

    Nice idea. As long as Biden is in office, there will be funding to Gaza, given directly to Hamas. More money will somehow be directed to Iran, and this ends up by Hamas and Hezbollah. The idea is great. First, we need to get rid of the politicians that will talk the talk, but subsidize the terror.
