The Sbarro murderess is a media star .
SheÂ Â is one of the most notorious monsters released in the Gilad Shalit prisoner exchange, nowÂ happily living in Jordan with her husband,Â Â another released terrorist.

She is adored not only by Muslims but by the Western leftists as well. They don’t show it openly but when they say that “Palestinians” have the “moral right” to adopt terrorism as a strategy , the sadistic , savage monsters like Ahalan Timimi have their moral support.
She regrets that she did not kill more – it’s there in yesterday’s video and in numerous other speeches and earlier videos recorded in her Jordanian freedom.
She appears on television and in front of adoring crowds (ask us if you want to view the video files) and expresses the vilest kind of racist hatred of Jews, Israelis and Zionists. She has done this many times since she unjustly got her freedom in October and her message is hugely amplified by the social media.
She is a star on YouTube, a hero on Facebook. She is globally broadcast via satellite television into every corner of the Arabic-speaking world. It’s arguable that she has the largest footprint of any ordinary murderer
She smiles warmly when she says she killed those Jews, and her god wanted her to do it. She points to how she has subsequently been rewarded with freedom, fame, a wedding that received live television coverage. The adoring crowds applaud and ululate. The encouragement (and probably the will) to emulate her actions is clear.
How many Arabic speakers are there in the world? A quick query on the web turns up these numbers: “280 million native speakers, and an extra 250 million non-native speakers” [source]. How many Arabic newspapers? Many.
Here’s our point: We have searched and have not yet found a blog, article, published speech or op-ed in her language, Arabic, which criticizes the woman or her views. So far, not one. If readers can point us to exceptions, please do.
This is deeply shocking. Tamimi’s message resonates throughout the Arab and Islamic world. Her views don’t even rise to the level of controversial.
She’s simply a hero, wall to wall. She and her vile deeds, opinions and intentions appear to represent some sort of global consensus in the Arab and Islamic world. There is no outrage – not even concerning the passivity of the Kingdom of Jordan where she lives and from where a vibrant Tamimi-focused industry of online and broadcast videos sends its message of hatred and death out to the world.
Does the absence of criticism throughout the Arab world mean they support the deliberate killing of the innocent people among their enemy? Does their silence mean they support the murder of children as Tamimi certainly does, and they want to see it happen again and again as she certainly does?
What does this say about the discourse underway in the Arab world? What light does it throw on the global news media?
What does it tell us about the chances of ever making peace?
