Four Palestinians on FBI’s ‘most wanted’ list

37-year old Palestinian prisoner, Ahlam Al-Tamimi, who is on FBI’s ‘most wanted' list

Some 29 individuals from around the world are wanted over their alleged involvement in terrorist activities that have led to the death of US citizens, America’s Federal Bureau of Investigation (FBI) has announced. The names are included in the FBI’s latest “most wanted” list.

Israel’s Yedioth Ahronoth reported yesterday that the list includes four Palestinians, most notably the Secretary General of the Palestinian Islamic Jihad movement, Ramadan Shallah. The Washington DC-based bureau is offering a $5 million reward to anyone who hands over Shallah, who is said to be responsible for “a series of murder, bombing, extortion and money laundering activities.”

The FBI list also includes 37-year old Palestinian prisoner Ahlam Al-Tamimi, who was accused of carrying out the so-called Sbarro restaurant suicide bombing in Jerusalem in 2001, as well as the killing of a number of Israeli settlers and two US citizens. The Palestinian leader and co-founder of the Islamic Jihad movement, Abdel Aziz Odeh, 67, is another of the FBI’s “most wanted”.

Islamic Jihad: No policy shift after FBI terror list addition

Seventy-one year old Hussein Al-Amri, who was born in Jaffa, is wanted by the FBI for his alleged participation in the Pan American Airline bombing on 11 August 1982. The bureau has also placed a $5 million reward for any information on his whereabouts.

At the top of the list of “most wanted” individuals is Ayman Al-Zawahiri, the leader of Al-Qaeda. The FBI reward for his capture stands at £25 million.

    perhaps we need to be putting bounties on the heads of any american official responsible for arming “israel” in the first place. if the fbi is using “evidence” provided by “israel”, then the fbi is foolish. if any americans were killed by any palestinian in palestine or the illegitimate state of “israel”, then take it up with the international criminal court…and be sure to drag present and past “israeli” pms and mk’s before that court. oh…and, don’t forget our administrations who are STILL supporters of “israeli” zionist terrorism against arabs…

    i like the fbi…but, it needs to stop being used by zionists…and stop relying on their “intel”.
