U.S. and Canadian terrorist victims called on President Clinton to demand the extradition of a Hamas terrorist who is reportedly responsible for planning a number of attacks over several years in which three Americans and 21 Israelis were killed. The Zionist Organization of America and several other Jewish groups also say Mahmoud Abu Hanoud should be surrendered to the United States for prosecution. Israel is not seeking the extradition of Abu Hanoud, who is in the custody of the Palestinian Authority after escaping a weekend shootout with Israeli soldiers.
