Tamimi Extradition Crusade Finally Gets a More Public Administration Response

May 21st 2020

An ember of hope for justice has appeared in the years-long crusade to extradite the infamous Palestinian terrorist Ahlam Tamimi—now living a high profile life in Jordan. A statement of support from the US government was just announced on The Edwin Black Show, which is Zoomed every Thursday from Washington. Tamimi helped mastermind the infamous August 9, 2001 Sbarro Pizzeria bombing in Jerusalem. Unrepentant, Tamimi has bragged about her role in this act of terror and mass murder. Arnold Roth’s daughter Malki—a US citizen—was among the victims and Mr. Roth has sought justice ever since. Tamimi was released as part of the Gilad Shalit exchange.

Arnold Roth and others appeared on the May 21 edition of he Edwin Black Show to call for invocation of the Jordanian-American Extradition Treaty. Jordan refuses, claiming the 1995 treaty was never officially adopted by Amman’s parliament—even though at least three other terrorists have been extradited from Jordan to the US.

When pressed, the highest official sources in Israel and the United States –citing extreme sensitivity-- have repeatedly refused to comment in any way on the prospects of extraditing Tamimi, smothering Roth family hopes of extradition. Until now. A "direct governmental source with specific knowledge of the case" issued a statement to journalist and author Black for release on his show.

The source asserted, "Do not suggest that this matter is not a priority in the Administration. It is a priority. At the highest levels, our government is determined to hold those who commit acts of terrorism against Americans fully accountable. No one has forgotten about this case. We are very empathetic with the victim and the victim's family."

While Congressmen have been vocal in their demands, this is the first statement on the matter uttered either on the record or off the record by the Executive branch since the effort to extradite Tamimi gather steam.

On the show, Roth stated he expected Tamimi to be brought back to the United States to face justice.
