'Palestinian Authority' daily honors Sbarro terrorist as a hero

Palestinian Media Watch reports that the 'Palestinian Authority' daily newspaper Al-Quds has honored Sbarro terrorist Ahlam Tamimi as a 'hero' of the 'Palestinian people.'
On Aug. 9, 2001, a suicide terrorist entered the Sbarro pizza shop in the center of Jerusalem and detonated his bomb, killing 15 people, including seven children. Five members of the same family were wiped out. The woman who helped plan the attack and drove the terrorist, a university student named Ahlam Tamimi, was sentenced to 16 terms of life imprisonment in Israel. In prison, she married a male terrorist murderer, her cousin Nizar Tamimi.

Continuing the current trend in the ['moderate' CiJ] Palestinian Authority media to honor past and present terrorists, the Palestinian daily Al Quds yesterday published an interview with the Palestinian poet, Mutawakil Taha, who wrote a book honoring the terrorist couple. He described them as "the two great heroic prisoners Nizar Tamimi and Ahlam Tamimi."

In its introduction, the Palestinian daily cited the importance of his work:

"The work of the Palestinian poet, Dr. Mutawakil Taha, has a clear presence and influence on the Palestinian and Arabic culture and literature."

Mutawakil Taha:

"Two years ago I wrote the book "Ahlam ibn al-Nabi" about the two great heroic prisoners Nizar Tamimi and Ahlam Tamimi, whom we are proud of. A month ago I wrote the poem "Marwan" about Marwan Barghouthi, [serving 5 life sentences for murder - Editor] as a symbol of the fight voiced by the prisoners. I feel that the prisoners are Martyrs in potential, and that we should bond with them without question or accounting. We should bond to the prisoners unconditionally as we bond to the Martyrs and the homeland."

[Al-Quds, April 7, 2008]
I wonder if anyone will bother to show this to Bush and Condi.


P.S. The links on Tamimi's name are to past blog posts I have done about her. Those who have not seen them before would be well advised to read them. The Sbarro terror attack was a turning point in our relationship with the 'Palestinians.' It was one of two terror attacks that galvanized the country into action during the Oslo Terror War.

Let's not bother showing it to Olmert-Barak-Livni.

They don't care.
