FREE AHED TAMIMI
What would you do if someone shot your 14 year old cousin in the face? To be honest, having never been in such a dire predicament I have no idea how I’d react. Certainly, knowing how the IDF operate, the fact they’re literally allowed to do what the hell they like & most crucially they’re the ones armed with state-of-the-art weaponry, I would think concentrating on helping my cousin & seeing to it that no one else gets hurts by calming everyone down would be the most logical course of action.
Not the case for 16 year old Ahed Tamimi. Now before any idiot says these children shouldn’t throw stones or even greater fools say the Palestinians should disarm, all this is happening on Palestinian land. In other words what everyone should be saying is ‘why are the Israelis occupying land that’s not theirs? This is illegal.’ So Tamimi vented her anger by slapping & kicking two IDF soldiers. Fair play to the girl. Some tiger!
Trouble is she & her mother have now been locked up & the way Israeli justice works is no different to how Israeli soldiers go about their business. They display a wanton disregard to international law & simply make it up as they go along. God only knows what this poor girl & her mum are now going through. As many people as possible have to apply pressure. This is only one way to bring the Israelis to heel. It’s the only language they understand. Here are 3 links….
