A day before the terror attack in the town of Itamar in which five members of the Fogel family were murdered in their home, PA TV broadcast a program honoring Ahlam Tamimi, the woman accomplice who drove the suicide bomber to the Sbarro pizza restaurant in Jerusalem in August, 2001, Palestinian Media Watch has reported.

Tamimi, who is serving 16 life sentences, has never expressed remorse for her role in the terror attack, in which 15 people were murdered, seven of them children.

Visiting Tamimi's home, the PA TV crew interviewed her relatives, who expressed their longing for her and their hope for her release.

The award is decorated with photographs of Yasser Arafat and Abu Jihad, the Fatah logo, and a photograph of Tamimi herself.
