Outlines the main laws in Israel regulating financing of terrorism: the Defence (Emergency) Regulations 1945, the Prevention of Terrorism Ordinance 5708‐1948, the Penal Law 5737‐1977, the Prohibition on Money Laundering Law 5760‐2000, the Combating Criminal Organisations Law 5763‐2003, and the Prohibition of Terrorism Bill 5763‐2003. Details the provisions of this last Bill; they cover government declaration of an organisation or person engaging in terrorism, offences under the law, administrative seizure proceedings, forfeiture of property in criminal proceedings, and amendments to the Prohibition on Money Laundering Law. Concludes that together the recent legislation provides a secure normative framework against terrorist financing.
