The terrorists behind the suicide bombing at a Sbarro pizzeria 11 years ago have received US$910,823 from the Palestinian Authority, according to a Palestinian Media Watch report released on Thursday.

The bombing killed 15 people, including 15-yr-old Melbourne-born Malka Roth, two Americans, and injured around 130 others.

The family of the suicide-bomber behind the Aug. 9, 2011, attack, Izz Al-Din Al-Masri, has been one of the recipients of P.A. rewards.

According to the report, Al-Masri’s family has received $53,689 overall, while the bombmaker Abdullah Barghouti has collected $213,848.

Ahlam Tamimi, who planned the attack, has shown no remorse, saying she has “no regrets.”

Tamimi had been awarded $51,836 until she was released from prison, as part of a 2011 prisoner exchange that included Israeli soldier Gilad Shalit’s release from Hamas captivity, when she then escaped to Jordan.

Tamimi is on America’s “Most Wanted Terrorist” list, but the United States has been unable to secure her extradition as a 1995 extradition agreement was not ratified by Jordan’s government.

The Palestinian Authority allots $7,321 monthly to the Sbarro terrorists and their families, per the report.

Arnold Roth, the father of victim Malka Roth told J-Wire: “In the park down the street from where we live in Jerusalem, the local teens are putting final touches today to the annual charity bazaar held every year the day after Tisha B’Av. The bazaar exemplifies how Israeli and its children deal with the bitter experience of ultra-violent hatred like that which blew up the Sbarro pizzeria 18 years ago today and obliterated so many futures. My daughter Malki’s life ended there that day.

How we manage and use resources says a lot about society. Money spent wisely, would make Palestinian Arab lives better, improving their prospects in life, their health and education.
The chronically insolvent Mahmoud Abbas regime that lives from foreign aid chooses loudly, aggressively and without shame to devote a massive share of its budget to honouring the killers of children and to nurturing yet more of them. Tragically, this is one of the few ways the inept Palestinian Authority manages to change its hapless subjects’ destiny.
The children on our street raise substantial funds each year from a fine event that remembers Malki and her dearest friend Michal Raziel. Their values symbolize and honour Israel and the Jewish people’s efforts to create better futures – tikun olam. It’s not an outlook our Arab neighbours share with us.
Eventually, it will prevail. But only after the politicians behind the foolish funding policies of the governments refilling Abbas’ purse understand the chronic damage they do and stop.
