We have documented extensively the ghoulish pleasure Ahlam Tamimi took in murdering children at the Sbarro Pizzeria in Jerusalem in 2001, including great joy when she found out that more children were killed than she previously knew.

Ahlam was released by Israel in October 2011 as part of the Gilad Shalit prisoner...

He also is a Class A propagandist and hypocrite. He demands that others boycott Israeli universities, for example, but also attended Tel...
