Aldous Huxley once said, "Several excuses are always less convincing than one."

Jordan's Al Ghad newspaper quotes a former president of the Jordanian Bar and current MP in the House of Representatives, Saleh Armouti, as to exactly why Jordan cannot extradite terrorist Ahlam Tamimi to the US for her role in the murder of two Americans.

He gave multiple excuses:

* She already served a prison sentence for her acts and it is not acceptable for her to go on trial again.

* Jordanian law says that any action taken against a citizen must be approved by the National Council (I think he may be saying that the Jordanian parliament never ratified the extradition agreement signed with the US under the Clinton administration, but I'm not sure)

* The US only unsealed the indictment after Donald Trump was president so this is a political ploy, and not an act to seek justice.

But there is one real reason he gives as to why Jordan will never extradite a confessed, unrepentant child murderer: because she is not guilty of any crime to begin with, and in fact she is a heroine:

"The liberated prisoner Ahlam Tamimi had the legitimate right to resist the occupier, as the United Nations laws stipulates the right to self-determination, which includes the right to resist the occupation,"says Armouti.

Arabs have pretended for years that international law supports murdering Jews as long as you can call it "resisting occupation." And as soon as someone uses that in an argument, you know that you are dealing with someone who doesn't care about the law any more than they care about the lives of Jewish children.

We have lots of ideas, but we need more resources to be even more effective. Please donate today to help get the message out and to help defend Israel.
