What Would it Take to Make You as Happy as This Woman?

Please spend two minutes and 46 seconds in watching the edited extract of a television  interview with the woman who planned and executed a massacre of innocent civilians, most of them children, eleven years ago. Following the killings, she went to her place of work which happens to have been a television studio, and calmly read the evening news bulletin, starting with a report of the massacre that she herself had perpetrated some hours earlier.

After an intense criminal investigation, she was arrested less than two months later and charged with the murders of fifteen people, along with a host of other felonies. She was convicted and sentenced to sixteen terms of life imprisonment. But as a result of a controversial and cynical political deal, she was freed (not pardoned) in October 2011 and released to the land of her birth where she has become a major celebrity. Her recent wedding to her cousin, another unjustly freed murderer, received live television coverage and extensive media attention. Not only a celebrity but a hero.

Watch how the woman’s face radiates the joy that comes from recounting how the death toll grew steadily in the hour or so that she spent fleeing the scene via public transport, unhindered by the police. Absorb the message of how members of the public, unaware the murderer was seated beside them, expressed happiness at the deaths of anonymous children.

Imagine the feelings of the families of the innocents murdered by a person like this as they see her achievements celebrated and honored, as they listen to the prideful boasting of an unrepentant killer whose only regret is that she did not manage to kill more. She has confessed over and again since being allowed out of captivity. There can be absolutely no doubt that her deeds are an inspiration to countless others seeking the glory and vindication that her society has delivered to her.

The video, which went to air in July and has just been translated and edited by MEMRI, is here.

 

 

 

 

Ahlam Tamimi, a very happy person, lives in complete and unfettered freedom in the Kingdom of Jordan from where she has traveled several times in the ten months since her release to such places as Tunisia, Lebanon and Qatar to give public speeches. She hosts a television program of her own that is broadcast by satellite throughout the Arabic-speaking world. She married her cousin in June.

Among the fifteen people murdered by her on August 9, 2001 is our daughter Malki who was fifteen years old. A sixteenth victim, the young mother of a two year old child, has remained in a vegetative state since being injured in the attack.

What should a civilized society do in the wake of this woman’s story?

About the Author: Frimet and Arnold Roth began writing and speaking publicly soon after the murder of their fifteen year-old daughter Malki Z"L in the Jerusalem Sbarro massacre, August 9, 2001 (Chaf Av, 5761). They have both been, and are, frequently interviewed for radio, television and the print media, including CNN, BBC, New York Times, Washington Post, Al-Jazeera, and others. Their blog This Ongoing War deals with the under-appreciated price of living in a society afflicted by terrorism which, they contend, means the entire world. Frimet is a native of Queens, NY while her husband was born and raised in Melbourne, Australia. They brought their family to settle in Jerusalem in 1988. They co-founded the Malki Foundation in 2001 and are deeply involved in its work as volunteers. They can be reached at thisoingoingwar@gmail.com .

  1. Gil Gilman says:

    A religion that rejoices at the suffering and death of children, can be no better than the worshippers of Molech many thousands of years ago…

  2. Dawn Yonah says:

    Islam worships a G-d of death, NOT life. There is NO WAY their G-d is the same as the G-d of Israel. And they cannot hide under the heading of "religion." They are a dangerous and hate-filled ideology and must not be tolerated.

  3. Gil Gilman says:

    Unfortunately, hate filled groups and individuals HAVE hidden within the cloak of religion for centuries and will continue to do so because the masses worlwide, whether religious or not, are easily duped because they are not critical thinkers or reasoners, being led around by the nose ring by whatever ideaologue comes there way. My comments include Atheism as a religion, and Agnosticism as outside of religion.

  4. Ron Kall says:

    Wrong, your comment lumps all religions with the sickness of islam, which is a way of making excuses for islam. Are you a muslim apologist?

  5. Ron Kall says:

    What's your point about Molech. I have no idea who that was or what they did as his followers, but seeing your posts I imagine you are trying to say, see look how bad Molech's people were thousands of years ago so muslims aren't so bad!. That again would be nothing but muslim apology. .

  6. Gil Gilman says:

    Ron, you are living in a world of false assumptions. If you have read any of my other posts you would realise that i am no muslim apologist, but the opposite. Molech was a god you can read about in the tenach. His followers through their children into a large frying pan and burned them to death. I was not contrasting, but likening radical islamists to the events of those days. Educate yourself before you look like an utter fool

  7. Gil Gilman says:

    Once again Ron, your thinking is colored by false assumptions. Where do you find any statement saying anything other than that radical islam is anything other than ignorant evil? Unfortunately they are not the only perpetrators of evil in this world, historically, or currently. Don't be an ignoramus…
