A general view of the scene of a suicide attack is seen in Tel Aviv in this April 17, 2006 file photo. Long determined to deprive Islamist groups of funding, Israel has unexpectedly hit the brakes in a U.S. court case centred on allegations that the Bank of China knowingly let cash flow to Palestinian militants. Apparently reluctant to send a former Israeli intelligence official who is a potentially crucial witness to testify in New York, Prime Minister Benjamin Netanyahu faces accusations from his critics that he might let the case unravel rather than put bilateral trade ties with Beijing at risk. The law suit against the Bank of China was brought by the American family of Daniel Wultz, a 16-year-old killed while on holiday in the Israeli city of Tel Aviv in the 2006 suicide attack claimed by the Islamic Jihad faction during a Palestinian uprising.
