  • Le massacre de l'Ile de la Paix se produisit le 13 mars 1997 dans un parc situé sur l'île de Naharayim à la frontière entre la Jordanie et Israël. Un caporal jordanien de 26 ans ouvrit le feu sur un groupe d'écolières israéliennes venant de la ville de Beit Shemesh, en voyage scolaire. Il en tua 7 et en blessa 6 autres. Le roi Hussein de Jordanie vint à Beit Shemesh présenter ses condoléances et demander pardon au nom de son pays, dans un geste qui fut jugé touchant et courageux par CNN. Le soldat fut condamné à la peine de mort, commuée en prison à vie du fait de l'« instabilité mentale » du coupable. Le Roi Hussein, qui aurait pu alléger la sentence refusa, qualifiant le crime de « haineux » et soulignant que le caporal aurait dû être abattu à vue. L'auteur du massacre, Ahmad Dakamseh, est libéré en mars 2017 et déclare que les Israéliens sont des « déchets humains » qui devaient être éradiqués. (fr)
  • The Island of Peace massacre was a mass murder attack that occurred at the Island of Peace site in Naharayim on March 13, 1997, in which a Jordanian soldier opened fire at a large group of Israeli schoolgirls from the AMIT Fuerst (Fürst) School of Beit Shemesh, who were on a class field trip, killing seven of them and injuring six others, before a group of Jordanian soldiers seized him and rushed to help the victims. The perpetrator, Ahmad Daqamseh, was diagnosed with antisocial personality disorder by a Jordanian medical team. A five-member military tribunal subsequently sentenced him to 20 years in prison with hard labour. Shortly after the attack, King Hussein went to offer condolences to families of the victims; it was seen as a sincere and an unusual act in the history of the Israeli-Arab conflict, which deeply moved the mourning Israeli public and helped improve the relationship between the two countries after the attack. Daqamseh was later called a "hero" by Jordanian politician Hussein Mjalli, and a petition circulated in the Jordanian parliament in 2013 where MPs alleged that he had finished his sentence. Daqamseh was released on 12 March 2017 after completing his sentence. He expressed pride for his actions, and showed no signs of remorse. (en)
