Ahed Tamimi: Israeli Refusnik Counters the Zionist Propaganda

There are times I feel there is no hope for the situation in Israel/Palestine, the Zionists regime is an entrenched, racist entity one feels with US backing, money and weapons there is no taming it. The struggle of the Palestinian civilian population against one of the most well equipped armies in the world is nothing less than heroic.

The young girl confronting the IDF soldiers in occupied Palestine has been seen all over the world. We have it on our Facebook page as well. This is Israeli television reporting on it. It's nauseating listening to the official Zionist line here, propaganda that would give  Leni Riefenstahl a run for her money.

On with the propagandists is Jonathan (Yonatan) Pollak, an Israeli who refused to serve in what he  refers to in this video as "your" army rather than "my" or "our".  He's a brave and decent man please listen to it all Pollak comes in at 3.44 but listen to the mouthpieces of Zionism to get a sense of their thinking and the lies they offer the Israeli and world public.  The video is part of an article from 972 Magazine written  Lisa Goldman. Thank you to people like Ms Goldman, and 972 for their work.

Nabi Saleh is where I lost my Zionism

By the time I began going to Nabi Saleh, I had spent about four years reporting on what I saw in the West Bank and Gaza, watching detachedly as my politics moved ever leftward. What I witnessed in that small West Bank village was the last straw.

A short video of 16-year-old Ahed Tamimi slapping an Israeli soldier has dominated the Israeli media for the past week, and received prominent coverage internationally as well. Ahed, a Palestinian girl from the West Bank village of Nabi Saleh, makes a big impression with her eye-catching mane of blonde hair, the fierce, intelligent expression in her blue eyes — and her fearlessness.

One of the most striking aspects of the immense discussion generated by the video is the near-binary contrast between what Israelis and their advocates see, and what everyone else sees.

For Israelis, one of their soldiers was provoked, almost unbearably, but still managed to rise above the situation. For almost everyone else, the video shows an unarmed adolescent — who could easily, based on her appearance, be an Israeli teenager shopping at the mall — bravely confronting an armed soldier in her own village. Even without knowing the circumstances, a fully-grown man in combat gear and carrying a powerful weapon refraining from hitting a much smaller, unarmed adolescent girl, seems not remarkably praiseworthy but rather a response predicated on basic humanity and ethics.

Ahed Tamimi is an abused child, what parent would risk the health and safety of a child, as they have done for years, and allow her to be used for propaganda?

Does anyone seriously think that if she used violence against a policeman in the United States, that she would be shot with a Taser or shot dead with a bullet?

The "Palestinians" and their supporters try to justify violence. Like the idiot defending her on the video, some anti-Semities, sorry, anti-Zionists, will try to justify using children in this way. It's not surprising that Arabs and Muslims have no issues using children for suicide missions or will happily see their children being killed as "Martyrs". They send their children in Gaza to Terror Training Camps to learn how to kill Jews. Hamas children's TV is replete with brainwashing children from the cradle to the grave. They send their children to throw rocks at cars, sometimes killing children, is it any surprise they get shot? Ahed's father is a member of the PLO, a terror organization that started the whole narrative that "Palestine" was an Arab Muslim country in 1967. Before this terror organization started, there was no "Palestine", Gaza was Egyptian and Judea/Samaria had a minority Jordanian population.

In any civilized country, who would not see what is being done to this child as anything other than Child Abuse and report the parents to Police and Social Services?

Golda Meir understood Arabs very well when she said; “Peace will come when the Arabs will love their children more than they hate us.”

It is clear that Arabs don't want peace, they have rejected it 5 times since 1948. They want all Jews dead, and maybe even the 30% of Israeli Arabs who proudly call Israel home. The solution to peace is very simple; stop attacking Israel and you wont be shot or jailed. The best thing that could happen to this child is that she is taken away from her abusive parents. It's a pity she wasn't removed earlier before she was taught such hate. Shame on any child abusers who make excuses for this child.
