This is in response to readers who asked us to name the minor Palestinian terrorists organizations in Gaza that Israeli intelligence services which we referred to in our recent article Compliance Officers facing Zero Tolerance for Permitting Terrorist Financing into the Middle East need to Know who are their Additional Adversaries . If you are periodically checking social media entries of your high-risk bank clients, and happen to see any of these organizational symbols or flags, which could indicate that your customer is affiliated with any of these entities, or is delivering financial support to them abroad, immediately upgrading your inquiry to enhanced due diligence, and forthwith report your findings to your director of compliance and/or outside bank counsel.
We remain puzzled why there is essentially little publicly-available information about these terrorist organizations, other than the PFLP. Familiarize yourself with their names, and keep the images handy for future reference. This is not intended to be anything other than the disclosure of the entity names and their symbols; conduct detailed research on any group that you believe might be involved with your banks clients, even indirectly. America's intelligence community most certainly know the names of all the leaders of these organizations, but chooses to classify them and not to share them with the financial sector, so we have no way of knowing who they are. No wonder the war on money laundering is not going well.
