On August 9th, 2001, around 2:00 PM,  Hamas terrorists  Izz al-Din Shuheil al-Masri, and Ahlam Tamimi,  approached the Sbarro Pizzeria, in Jerusalem.  Al- Masri, 22 and from an affluent West bank family was carrying a bomb designed by Hamas' chief bomb-maker, Abdullah Barghouti, and packed with nuts, bolts and screws. The bomb was created specifically to maximize human suffering.  al-Masri detonated his device inside the crowded restaurant, killing 15 and wounding 130.

Ahlam Tamimi, a Jordanian national and a journalism student received 16 life sentences plus an additional 15 years for her role in planning the terror attack.  After serving 10 years in prison, she was released as part of the deal to release kidnapped Israeli soldier Gilad Shalit.  

When interviewed about the attack  Tamimi responded:
"Of course, I do not regret what happened. Absolutely not. This is the path. I dedicated myself to Jihad for the sake of Allah, and Allah granted me success. You know how many casualties there were [in the 2001 attack on the Sbarro pizzeria]? This was made possible by Allah. Do you want me to denounce what I did? That’s out of the question. I would do it again today, and in the same manner."
Watch the monster gloating over her casualties. There is no conscience, no remorse.

Never forget the innocent victims of terror. And never forget the monsters that now walk free.

These monsters should not receive the sentence of "Life". They should be terminated immediately. Terrorism is a horrible disease. Wake up people! If it is right to kill a rabid dog, how much more a cowardly terrorist?
