And now the overwhelming majority of the elected government of Jordan have concluded that this mass murderer of young Israeli girls should be free.
According to a 2011 report, Jordan’s powerful Islamist movement and the country’s 14 trade unions have repeatedly called for Daqameseh’s release.
In 2001, Daqameseh’s mother publicly announced on an al Jazeera talk show, “I am proud of my son and hold my head high. My son did a heroic deed and has pleased Allah and his own conscience. My son lifts my head and the head of the entire Arab and Islamic nation. I am proud of any Muslim who does what Ahmed did… My son told me he has no regrets.”
In just over a decade it seems that the Jordanian parliament has come to agree with the mother of the mass murderer.
Somehow Israel’s southeasterly front looks far less stable than it has in a long time.
