Following are excerpts from an interview with released terrorist Ahlam Tamimi, who was sentenced to 16 life terms in prison. The interview was posted on the Internet on October 19, 2011.
Interviewer: If you could go back in time, would you carry out such a large-scale attack?
Ahlam Tamimi: Of course. I do not regret what happened. Absolutely not. This is the path. I dedicated myself to Jihad for the sake of Allah, and Allah granted me success. You know how many casualties there were [in the 2001 attack on the Sbarro pizzeria]. This was made possible by Allah. Do you want me to denounce what I did? That's out of the question. I would do it again today, and in the same manner.
