Despite an American extradition request, Jordan is unwilling to hand over Hamas female terrorist Ahlam al-Tamimi who drove a vehicle to transport the Sbarro suicide bomber in 2001.
The heinous terrorist was sentenced to 16 life sentences, one for each person murdered in the attack, however, like over 1,000 other terrorists, she was released in the Gilad Shalit prisoner exchange deal.
Leading to the request was the FBI decision to place al-Tamimi on the most wanted list as among the dead were American citizens.
According to the Israel Radio report, Hamas is defending her, calling on Jordan not to honor the extradition based on its interpretation of the extradition, that the Americans have no right to extradite her.
