In yet another example of the climate in Palestinian society where the practice of glorifying terrorists is deemed perfectly acceptable, Ahlam Tamimi, the Hamas terrorist who drove a suicide bomber to the Sbarro restaurant in Jerusalem where 15 people were consequently killed, has gotten her own television show.
Tamimi, who was sentenced to 16 life terms in Israeli prison, was freed in October as part of the swap that bought IDF soldier Gilad Shalit ‘s freedom. She was deported to Jordan, where she appears to have launched a television career.
According to Ynet news, the Hamas-affiliated Al-Quds satellite channel has slotted Tamimi to present a weekly show called "Nassim al-Ahrar," which deals with Palestinian convicts imprisoned in Israel, and those who have been freed. The channel has been aggressively promoting the show.
In an interview published shortly after her release, Tamimi said she does not regret her involvement in the attack, which took place in 2001.
