The world is failing to take financial measures against Iran’s terror threat

UANI Research Director Daniel Roth writes: "For a time after 9/11, it was clear that intergovernmental cooperation would be necessary to stop terror financing and money laundering by terror groups. But the world is moving on to a new and more dangerous dynamic.

U.S. allies in Europe and the Middle East are ignoring the recommendations and directives of the Financial Action Task Force, one of the most critical groups in the world in the effort to protect banks from unlawful activities. As a result, the likelihood has long been rising of confrontations with terrorism in the streets or on the battlefield, instead of on bank balance sheets. Iran’s massive drone and missile attack against Israel over the weekend may be just the beginning."
