Israelis call her ‘Shirley Temper.’ Palestinians call her a hero.
The Washington Post ^ | December 19, 2017 | Ruth Eglash

JERUSALEM — Israelis call her ‘Shirley Temper’ and say she epitomizes ‘Pallywood,’ or Palestinian propaganda attempts to discredit Israel. Palestinians call her a hero, for fearlessly standing up to those who enforce the Israeli occupation of their land and those who terrorize her village.

Her real name is Ahed Tamimi. And a video of her confronting or provoking Israeli soldiers — depending on how you look at it — has gone viral.

Again.

Tamimi, 16, is a well-known Palestinian activist from a well-known activist family. She lives in the village of Nabi Saleh, in the occupied West Bank, where weekly demonstrations have become common scenes of clashes between Palestinian stone throwers and Israeli troops. The villagers accuse Israel of expropriating their lands in favor of the nearby Jewish settlement of Halamish.

On Friday, the army said, soldiers were in the village to contain a riot involving some 200 people, including the Tamimis. Some of the rioters, the army said in a statement, entered a nearby house and continued to throw rocks at troops. Then, it said, Tamimi and some women exited and started to “violently provoke” the soldiers.

Tamimi, her wild locks swept up in a hair band, can be seen on film slapping and kicking a soldier, as another young woman captures the exchange on her smartphone.

On Monday night, after the video was highlighted by Israeli news media, Israeli forces arrested Tamimi and detained her mother, Nariman, the army said in a statement.

Bassem Tamimi, Ahed’s father, wrote on Facebook that soldiers raided his home, confiscating cellphones and computers and taking away his wife and daughter. He said he has not spoken to the women since. A court hearing has been set for Wednesday.

The father said that during the Friday clash, the soldiers shot a 14-year-old boy,...

I generally don’t harbor bad thoughts about a 16 year old, but that is the land of the child suicide belt.

At some point in time, Israel should cut off everything it does for the Arabs on the West Bank and in Gaza.

Let them deal with the lack of services, water, and food for 60 days.

Israel does things for them no other nation would do, despite them all wanting every Israeli dead.

Israelis call her ‘Shirley Temper.’ Palestinians call her a hero.

And the Washington comPost ALWAYS sides with the violent, genocidal muzztards.

Always.

She wants to goad Israeli security officers into killing her. The ME version of “suicide by cop.”

But Israeli soldiers have done a good job of keeping their cool during her deranged provocations.

She did recently get arrested...

Another Rachel Corrie wannabe, martyr for her times. Women and kids first for the cameras.

Also she is not 16, but 19. Has been lying about her age for several years.

She has been at it for years (posing for propaganda photos), being encouraged and rewarded. Now that she is sixteen, and may have started to believe the hype herself and committed assault, she faces being charged.

Yeah, should be “we call her a hero” if truth be known, but they are trying to feign objectivity. ;)

Her parents, her people generally, are really evil. Little girls aren’t filled with hate like that unless they have been systematically abused or they have been systematically taught to hate.
