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.

Last year, @StateDept announced a $5M reward for her capture and conviction. That's strange given she isn't and never was in hiding. She's regularly in the news, even interviewed by @AP a while back in her Amman apartment.

And in case you're interested Mr @NYTDavidBrooks,

we, as Malki's grieving parents, aren't among the Israelis with repressed memories. Quite the opposite: we're unable to forget what was done to our daughter who never got to her 16th birthday. That's because the #Sbarro bomber is free and kept safe from the efforts

of US justice (did we mention Malki was an American?) by one of America's most lavishly supported allies, @KingAbdullahII of Jordan, a frequent visitor to Washington and the Congress. The @NYTimes hasn't reported any of this.

The #Tamimi tale is extraordinary, not in a good sense. We think it reveals a lot to alert observers paying attention. It ought to be explained and covered by the mainstream media. But it's not.

How, my wife and I ask, did this become something no reporter wants to report?
