The Falic Family has a long documented history of using Duty Free Americas to finance the Israeli settler movement, and thus the displacement of Palestinian communities.
DFA funds the forced displacement of Palestinians
The South Florida-based Falic family, owners of the airport retail stores, Duty Free Americas, has sent millions of dollars in company profits to fund the forced displacement and dispossession of Palestinian families in Jerusalem and the West Bank through illegal settlement expansion.
“The [Falic] family has donated at least $5.6 million to settler groups in the West Bank and East Jerusalem over the past decade…” — Associated Press
“The Falic family also operates the Panama-based Segal Foundation for Israel, which ran afoul of even Israeli law because it did “little more than transfer millions of shekels to right-wing organizations in Israel.” — Israeli newspaper Ha’aretz
The Palestinian people have the right to live in their native land free from violence by settlers and settler organizations, who — backed by the Israeli government and military — continue to destroy Palestinian homes and seize their land. These settlers and settler organizations in the West Bank and East Jerusalem contribute to the ongoing Nakba, the Arabic word meaning catastrophe, referring to the expulsion of 750,000 Palestinians from their homes and land prior to and during the creation of the Israeli state in 1948.
