(VIDEO) 2001 Sbarro Pizzeria bombing mastermind: “I chose it after I saw the crowds of people”

The cold-blooded pleasure in killing that confronts Israelis.

We have written numerous times about the suicide bombing of the Sbarro Pizzeria in Jerusalem in 2001, which killed 15 people, including two Americans and several children.

Most recently Miriam Elman documented the bombing and the mastermind, Ahlam Tamimi, Never forget: Sbarro Pizzeria Massacre, Jerusalem, Aug. 9, 2001.

Ahlam not only masterminded the bombing, she announced it on Palestinian television as a student news show host.

Ahlam is from the Tamimi Clan of Nabi Saleh, whose best known member is Bassem Tamimi, controversial for his use of children for try to provoke confrontations with the Israeli police for the purpose of obtaining viral video and images.

The Tamimi Clan is treated as heroes by the Boycott, Divestment and Sanctions movement, and by anti-Zionist leftists (including some Jews).  Ahlam, who was released from prison as part of the Gilad Shalit prisoner exchange and now resides in Jordan, remains a “much-loved” figure in Nabi Saleh.

Ahlam repeatedly has stated that the has no regrets about the bombing and would do it again:

Interviewer: If you could go back in time, would you carry out such a large-scale attack?

Ahlam Tamimi: Of course. I do not regret what happened. Absolutely not. This is the path. I dedicated myself to Jihad for the sake of Allah, and Allah granted me success. You know how many casualties there were [in the 2001 attack on the Sbarro pizzeria]. This was made possible by Allah. Do you want me to denounce what I did? That’s out of the question. I would do it again today, and in the same manner.

On multiple occasions, we have played this video clip of an interview with Ahlam, in which she expresses great pleasure upon learning that more children were killed in the bombing than she previously knew:

As chilling as that video is, in researching something else I stumbled upon another interview of Ahlam from the trailer for the 2007 film Hot House by Israeli filmmaker Shimon Dotan. The Hot House interview not only includes a clip of Ahlam’s television announcement of the bombing she planned (see image above) but also details how Ahlam planned a prior bombing at a supermarket.

As to the Sbarro bombing, Ahlam detailed how carefully she studied the restaurant and chose it because it was crowded (see also Featured Image):

And how she took joy in providing the suicide bomber she delivered to the restaurant with the “life” he wanted most (i.e., to become a martyr):

Ahlam also reflected upon the favorable jail conditions:

Here is the video trailer from Hot House.  When you look at her eyes, you can see the cold-blooded pleasure in killing that confronts Israelis.


Donations tax deductible
to the full extent allowed by law.


Sick and demented.

Blasphemy and scandal.

South Africa revisited. One faction competes with another and a competitor outside of their ecosystem. So far, no outside force has backed factional destruction or mass abortion of the outsider. Perhaps Israel lacks the natural incentives to attract an intervention.

Ahlam also reflected upon the favorable jail conditions: They’ve turned the jail into a school and made it Paradise.

Indeed. So whose fault is that? Not the Arabs’.

Obama’s ten thousandth Syrian refugee, of whom 13 per cent are undetectable jihadis, is scheduled to arrive on these shores shortly.
Sleep tight, sweet dreams with that thought on your mind. Hold your spouse, your children, or your parents tight as they prepare to leave the premises, because you’ll never know with Obama’s Hijrah in full operation.

They keep telling me that Islam is a religion of piece and that the jihad that fills (literally) our news cycles has nothing to do with Islam…

Problem is that we keep meeting earthly demons like this wretched woman.

Interesting times, no?

I cannot advocate the removal from the face of this Earth of this piece of crap through illegal means, but the idea has certainly occurred to me. I wonder why the Israeli intelligence service has not acted, in complete secrecy.

    Because their “legal adviser” (i.e. dictator) told them they’d be hauled before a court and imprisoned if they even tried.
