Welcome to our battle #1

March 14, 2017, five years after we asked @TheJusticeDept to go after our child's killer, a US Federal criminal complaint was unsealed with a warrant for #AhlamTamimi’s arrest. The charges had been under seal since July 15, 2013. Why? Good question.
Welcome to our battle #2

US officials told us the same day that Jordan is obliged under a 1995 treaty to extradite #Tamimi - and was refusing. Less than a week later, its highest court ruled the Jordan/US treaty had been invalid under Jordan's law since the day it was signed.
Welcome to our battle #3

Jordan, which now says the extradition treaty was never valid, has extradited terrorists to the US every time it was asked. Why's the #AhlamTamimi case different? Some say because most of her victims were Jewish children making her a Jordanian hero.

Practically everything @MattiFriedman writes is incisive and worth the effort. This latest @NYTimes piece comes with a high-res photo of the devastated Sbarro pizzeria minutes after #AhlamTamimi delivered her human bomb there. My daughter's inside, dead. She isn't seen.

My wife and I first heard of #Tamimi, a woman of 21 back then, much later via news reports. She confessed to her key role, never stopped grinning, confidently told the judges she would get out soon despite the 16 life term sentence they gave her.

And she did. She walked free a few years later in the #ShalitDeal. With unreported help from the Kingdom of Jordan she quickly became a celebrity activist there for terror and its practitioners. She still is despite now being an @FBIMostWanted who faces charges in Washington.

It's just so thrilling! The show's young presenter, Aya, a sometime-fashion model, gasps on air to the homicidal #Tamimi couple:
"You, the people of the struggle, elevate the name of #Jordan!"

Does she know that, between them, they took the lives of 17 Jews?
