Commenting on Jordanian King Abdullah, Sarah N. Stern, founder and president of the Endowment for Middle East Truth (EMET) in an article wrote: “King Abdullah of Jordan has played a rather specious and duplicitous role in this constant exploitation of the Mount for political purposes”.
Following rumored visit to the Temple Mount by Israeli minister Itamar Ben-Gvir, Jordan’s King Abdullah immediately travelled to the UAE to consult with President Mohamad Bin Zayed al-Nyan and warned Israel “not to cross red lines”.
In the Jordanian parliament, MP Khalil Attiyah stated, “Let us remind you, you coward, you pig, that Jordan’s border with Palestine is more than 300 kilometers long. It is a time bomb that will explode in your face and in the faces of people like you, you cowards”.
Jordanian MP Muhammad al-Shatnawi declared, “This is a red line. We will sacrifice our souls for Jerusalem and the holy places. We will give it all we have. We are prepared to be martyrs, and the first ones to use sticks, bombs and guns against this plundering entity”.
It may be mentioned here that, the Jordanian King Abdullah is under heavy influence of Palestinians and mega-terror outfit Hamas. In fact, the Jordanian monarch has been enthusiastically joining anti-Israel notoriety and been one of the key patrons of Palestinian terror on Israelis. Jordan has refused repeated requests from several members of the US Congress to extradite FBI’s most-wanted terrorist Ahlam Tamimi – a notorious terrorist who masterminded the gruesome Sbarro pizzeria bombing in 2001, where fifteen innocent civilians, including two US citizen namely Malka Roth (15) and Judith Greenblum (31) were murdered. Judit Greenblum was pregnant when she was killed in jihadist attack.
Despite the fact that Jordan has signed an extradition treaty with the United States on March 28, 1995, King Abdullah and the Jordanian authorities now are saying no such treaty was signed.
Sarah N. Stern in her article said, Jordan is one of the largest recipients of US foreign aid. During fiscal year 2023, the Department of State, Foreign Operations and Related Programs Appropriations Act (2023) will provide Jordan “not less than” US$1.65 billion in US taxpayer dollars.
According to the Federal Bureau of Investigation (FBI), Ahlam Aref Ahmad Al-Tamimi alias Ahlam Arafat Mazin Al Tamimi alias Ahlam Arif Ahmad Al Tamimi alias Ahlam Aref Ahmad Altamimi alias Ahlam Arif Ahmad Altamimi alias Ahlam Araf Ahmad Tamimi alias Ahlam Aref Ahmad Tamimi alias Ahlam Aref Ahmed Tamimi alias Ihlam Araf Ahmad Tamimi alias Achlam Tamimmi alias Ahlam Araf Ahmed Tmimi alias Halati alias Khalti has been charged with participating in an August 9, 2001, suicide bomb attack at a pizza restaurant in Jerusalem that killed 15 people, including two United States nationals. Four other United States nationals were among approximately 122 others injured in the attack. An affidavit in support of Al-Tamimi’s criminal complaint and a warrant for her arrest were sworn out under seal on July 15, 2013, in the United States District Court for the District of Columbia in Washington, DC, and were made public on March 14, 2017.
United States Department of State is offering a reward of up to US$5 million for information that leads to the arrest or conviction of Ahlam Ahmad al-Tamimi.
Terrorist Ahlam Tamimi is accused of conspiring to use and using a weapon of mass destruction against a United States national outside the United States resulting in death and aiding and abetting and causing an act to be done.
