The Arab Lawyers Union [ALU] on Friday honored the Palestinian woman who carried out the 2003 suicide bombing at Maxim's Restaurant in Haifa by awarding her the highest decoration to ever be granted by the union.

Twenty-one people were killed and 51 injured in the attack, which was carried out by Hanadi Jaradat, a law student from Jenin who was due to qualify as a lawyer in a few weeks.

The Cairo-based union, which represents lawyers from 15 Arab countries, dispatched a delegation to the home of Hanadi Jaradat in Jenin to present them with the award.

Ayman Abu Eisheh, member of the Palestine Committee at the ALU, said that the Arab lawyers were proud of what Jaradat did "in defense of Palestine and the Arab nation."
