Ben Ehrenreich Shares His Love for the Sbarro Massacre Mastermind’s Family (VIDEO)
Tuesday marks the 15th anniversary of the infamous Sbarro pizza shop bombing, masterminded by Ahlam Tamimi.
The attack, on August 9, 2001, killed 15 people and injured 130. Among the dead were a pregnant woman and seven children — some counted eight, including an 18 year-old who had just finished school; the injured also included one young mother who was left in a permanent vegetative state.
For the families of the victims, this year’s anniversary may well be particularly grim, because of a fawning, recently released book by journalist Ben Ehrenreich, lionizing the murderous Tamimi clan.
Who would have ever imagined that an American writer would write a book that presents the family of the Sbarro massacre mastermind as simply wonderful people? This despite the fact that the Tamimis not only continue to justify the attack, but are openly cheering pretty much every terror attack that has been perpetrated over the past year.
And who would have ever imagined that prestigious publications like the New York Times and The Economist would praise this hagiography of the terror-supporting, Jew-hating Tamimis to the high heavens? What is it about killing Jews that is so romantic that the NYT would gush about Ehrenreich’s Love Letter to Palestine, and The Economist would fawn about all “the hope and the love” that infuses Ehrenreich’s depiction of the Tamimis?
For a glimpse of the intense Jew-hatred and the ardent support for terror that animates Ehrenreich’s protagonists, watch the video below to be introduced to the four people Ehrenreich first names in the acknowledgements section of his book: Bassem and Nariman Tamimi, and Bilal and Manal Tamimi.
The video was conceived, researched and written by Petra Marquardt-Bigman, and narrated and directed by pro-Israel blogger Elder of Ziyon.
