U.S. Offers $5 Million Reward for Hizbullah, Palestinian Islamic Jihad Terrorists

[Fox News] The FBI is offering $5 million in reward money for two of the biggest fish in international terrorism. Hizbullah operative Mohammed Ali Hamadei, 42, believed to be hiding in Lebanon, is wanted for the 1985 hijacking of TWA Flight 847, during which U.S. sailor Robert Stethem was executed. Hamadei was released from a German prison in 2005, despite protests by the U.S. government. Ramadan Abdullah Mohammad Shallah, 49, founder of the Palestinian Islamic Jihad, is believed to be living in Damascus. FBI officials said Shallah directly planned and carried out numerous bombings, murders, extortions and racketeering crimes. Since its inception in 1984, the FBI says its "Rewards for Justice" program has paid $62 million to more than 40 people for credible information that has brought terrorists to justice or prevented acts of international terrorism.
