Also freed in the exchange was her relative Nizar Tamimi. He was proud of her for her major role in the Sbarro Pizzeria bombing, and she proud of him, too, for though he had only one cold-blooded murder of Jews to his credit, what he lacked in quantity he made up for in gruesome quality. It was just the kind of murder that made the Tamimi clan swell with pride. That murder is described by Caroline Glick:
Six weeks after Israel signed the Oslo Accords with the PLO on the White House lawn on September 13, 1993, Chaim Mizrahi from Beit El went to buy eggs from a farmer in Ramallah, as he had every week for years.
Two of Ahed’s cousins, Said and Nizar Tamimi, were there. They stabbed Mizrahi, stuffed him in the trunk of his car and burned him alive.
In Jordan, Nizar and Ahlam Tamimi were married. Nariman and Ahed Tamimi can be seen on stage in a video of the wedding, with Ahed “gazing worshipfully” — in Caroline Glick’s phrase — at Ahlam Tamimi, so very proud of her aunt for all that she had accomplished.
