20-Oct-11: Enough already: A first-person reminder for those who think we objected to the release of a mere "driver"

Repeatedly over the years and especially during this past very difficult week, reporters, analysts, political figures and even friends, having noted our call to have the name of our daughter's murderer removed from the list of terrorists to be (and now) freed by Israel, have referred to the woman as "the driver" of the human bomb.

She was not the driver. She was sentenced to sixteen life terms in prison because she played the most central of roles in the Sbarro Jerusalem massacre. She murdered 15 people on the day, eight of them children, and a sixteenth - a young mother - remains in a vegetative state until today. And here, in the video below (hat tip to, she says it. So please - enough already with calling this murderer a mere "driver".

As for the convicted murderer's total absence of regret for the deaths she engineered, she continues to take full credit, no regrets, now that she is free as a bird in Jordan. See this report ["Tamimi: I have never regretted what I have done"] from a Jordanian publication, today. It includes original video with Arabic dialogue that we hope someone authoritative will translate into English. Here is how the editors at Ammon News in Jordan rendered her appalling message in their English:
I have never regretted what I have done, and if given another chance I’ll do it again’ she added. Tamimi expressed her believes in the rightness of what she has done. Tamimi said in an interview with Ammon News Tuesday that the hostility and aggression is the basic character of the Israeli officials, unless the are forced to negotiate. Ahlam Tamimi, 31, was serving 16 life sentences for her role in a suicide bombing, including taking the assailant to the Sbarro franchise in Jerusalem where he killed 16 people in 2001. deported to Jordan last Wednesday early morning. She thanked Jordan and stated that Jordan people are the heart beat of the Palestinians.

While still inside an Israeli prison, the murderer was interviewed for a film that we saw some years ago. To understand the meaning of evil incarnate, watch her face in the video below as she hears for the first time the actual number of children who were murdered in the Sbarro massacre.

(Hat tip to Vlad Tepes from Canada. The source - under the title "Palestinian terrorist delights in the knowledge that it was eight children who died by her hand" - is here.)

Tamimi is the only one of the terrorists released on Tuesday to have been sent into so-called 'exile' in the Kingdom of Jordan. That happens to be where she was born and where her family resides. Some exile.

She was feted there in an official and well-publicized reception yesterday. We choked when we noted that the location was the Family Court of Amman. It's covered here.
