It's time for Americans to tell Israeli's to stay the hell out of our business.

An Israeli group is upset that Boeing is selling airplanes to an Iranian airline and claims “We are going to seize all 100 airplanes”. How nice of them. It's time for Americans to tell Israeli's to stay the hell out of our business.
An Israeli advocacy group on Thursday asked a U.S. federal court to block aerospace giant Boeing Co.’s planned $16.6 billion deal with Iran Air, saying the Tehran government must first pay off billions of dollars in damages to families of people killed or wounded by Iranian-backed militant groups.
In papers filed in the Northern District of Illinois court, the Shurat Hadin-Israel Law Center organization said it was seeking a lien against Boeing until the damages against Iran are recovered.
“We are going to seize all 100 airplanes,” said Nitsana Darshan-Leitner, the group’s director. “If Boeing thinks it will simply sell to Iran Air, which is 60 percent owned by the Iranian government, and pretend it is providing some sort of humanitarian civilian aid to a non-governmental entity, we will reveal the truth.”
Boeing Speaks in Trump Terms on Iran Deal: It’s About Jobs
Boeing said its agreement with Iran called for 80 planes to be delivered, starting in 2018. They include 50 of a new version of its single-aisle 737 jet, 15 of its larger 777s and 15 of a new 777X that should be ready for service by 2020.
House Republicans have sought to block the sales, and Mr. Trump has said Iran would not have been able to negotiate with Boeing if it had not been for the “disastrous Iran nuclear deal,” which put limits on Iran’s nuclear programs. But in a tweet that gives Boeing hope, he also expressed concern last January that Iran might buy its jets from Airbus instead of Boeing.
Another big hurdle for Boeing would be how to finance its sales to Iran. Conservatives in Congress have been trying to kill the Export-Import Bank of the United States, which has long provided subsidized credit to promote American exports. Mr. Trump has said he does not think the bank is needed, but he added that he had not made a final decision.
I dont see how it could be killed since its a court proceeding and falls under the Judicial branch and not the executive branch.

This advocacy group is asking for reparations from "Iranian backed groups."
Those groups may not be representative of Iran's government but merely Iranian rogue citizens, in which case the nation of Iran wouldn't be in debt.
