(WASHINGTON) JUST IN: The Trump administration is increasing its pressure on Jordan to extradite a Palestinian-Jordanian involved in the murder of U.S. citizens who has been living in that country since her release from an Israeli prison nine years ago #AceNewsDesk report

#AceNewsReport – June.18: They should not only do this. They should also make all aid contingent upon governments not aiding jihad activity in any way: On Tuesday, The Associated Press reported that the White House is considering withholding or cutting military aid to Jordan if it continues to refuse to extradite Ahlam Tamimi, who the United States wants to try for her role in a 2001 suicide bombing in a Jerusalem pizza parlor:

Trump administration considers cutting aid to Jordan to pressure it to extradite convicted jihad mass murderer ” Trump Administration Weighs Cutting Aid to Pressure Jordan to Extradite Convicted Terrorist,” by Amir Tibon, Haaretz, June 16, 2020:

Tamimi was convicted of being one of the organizers of that attack, which killed 15 people, including two U.S. citizens: She was sentenced to 16 life sentences by an Israeli court in 2003, but was released from prison in 2011 as part of a prisoner exchange deal in which the government released more than 1,000 Palestinian prisoners in exchange for Gilad Shalit, an Israeli soldier held hostage by Hamas.

After her early release from prison, Tamimi moved to Jordan, where most of her family resides: Over the past nine years, she has become a public persona there, appearing on television programs and giving media interviews. Throughout, the parents of Malki Roth, a 15-year-old Israeli and American dual citizen who was murdered in the Jerusalem attack, have waged a public campaign demanding that she face trial in the U.S.

Jordan and the U.S. have a joint extradition agreement, but Jordan’s reply to the growing pressure over the years to extradite Tamimi has been that the agreement is invalid: Last year, the State Department rejected the Jordanian claim and insisted in a written report that the extradition agreement was valid and applied to Tamimi’s case….
