Free Ahed Tamimi, Palestinian Freedom Fighter

By Mahmoud El-Yousseph

Israeli Occupation Forces arrested 16-year-old Ahed Tamimi , a prominent Palestinian activist, in the middle of the night after reportedly beating up her parents and a sibling.

Ahed Tamimi is from the village of Nabi Sahih (pop. 600), north west of the city of Ramallah. She was taken from her home in Nabi Salih in the Occupied Palestinian Territories during a 4:00 AM raid after a video emerged of her slapping an Israeli Occupation Force (IOF) officer went viral. Israel was outraged and considered the video an insult to its military and harmful to its occupation. Later on when Ahed’s mother,  Narihan Tamimi, went to a local occupation police station to inquire about her child, she was put under arrest too.

Here is the short video that went viral:

VIDEO : 0.36 seconds

Ahed Tamimi is an icon for many Palestinians. She has been protesting the Israeli occupation and the slow annexation of her village since she was seven years old.  Ahed lost two of her uncles, an aunt who were shot dead by the IOF, and now her 14-year old cousin who was severely injured by a rubber bullet fired into his face by an Israeli soldier. Nevertheless, members of Israel’s far-right and the Israeli media accused her and her family of deliberately using social media to discredit Israel and portray it in the worst possible light.

What does Israel expect from the Palestinians when the IOF raid their villages at midnight, kill or injure their children, and confiscate their land?

Under US law, the IOF soldiers ought to be considered criminal trespassers, for it is lawful to shoot dangerously armed intruders into your house, if only in self-defense. It is outrageous for Israel to label this courageous young Palestinian freedom fighter  a “provocateur” engaged in terrorism when they are breaking into the houses of Palestinians on a daily basis and beating up Palestinians and even killing them.

The truth is, Ahed Tamimi is a fearless Palestinian activist and a symbol of the popular Palestinian resistance against the Israeli occupation.

Israeli War Minister Avidor Lieberman went ballistic when he saw the video of Ahed slap one of the IOF soldiers on the face. He then issued an order to silence the Tamimi family once and for all. What does Lieberman expect?  You can’t toss a snake into a cradle and then act surprised if the baby get bitten.


This is the same Lieberman who said Palestinian citizens of Israel who do not swear allegiance to Israel should have their heads “chopped off by an axe.” He even suggested in 2003, when he was serving as transportation minister, that it might be a good idea for Israel “to drown any released Palestinian prisoners in the Dead Sea.”

Why does ISIS come to mind?

After Ahed Tamimi’s father told the world on his Facebook page what happened to his wife and daughter, the IOF soldiers came bursting into his home and stole all phones, computers, cameras, and his laptop  Later on when Ahed’s mother,  Narihan Tamim, went to a local occupation police station to ask for news about her child, she was immediately placed under arrest.

News Flash: As I am writing this, the newswires service reported that Nour Naji Tamimi, 21, a cousin of Ahed, was arrested by the IOF too.

A few days ago, Al-Jazeera also reported that  14-year-old Mohammad Tamimi, a cousin of Ahed, has been placed in a medically-induced coma after Israeli Occupation soldiers shot him in the face. This was during a protest against Trump’s decision to recognize Jerusalem as “the eternal capital of Israel”.

Mohammad underwent a six-hour operation involving the services of seven Palestinian  surgeons at a Ramallah hospital.

Human rights groups have accused Israel of abusing detained Palestinian children. As of January 2017, Israel is holding 339 Palestinian children and 400 Palestinian women at 13 concentration camps inside Israel. 

It looks like Israel has declared all-out war on the Tamimi family. Ahed is a child, and like thousands of Palestinian children, she could well be subjected to serious abuse behind bars. She needs to be freed as soon as possible.

It is a well documented fact that Palestinian children like Ahed Tamimi are beaten, abused and tortured during their arrest by the Israeli military.

For Ahed’s sake, peace loving people in the United States need to urge their Representative in Congress to sign onto legislation H.R. 4391 that  Congresswoman Betty McCollum(D-MN) just introduced to end the abuse and detention of Palestinian children.

Readers living in the US can have their voices heard, by challenging the illegal detention and inhumane treatment of Ahed, Narihan, and Nour Tamimi, by expressing their concerns to the embassy of Israel in Washington, D.C.  to the Israeli Embassy’s press office email address: [email protected]

Today an Israeli court has extended the detention of Ahed and her mother for another 10 days. There is also an unconfirmed report that Ahed’s father,  Bassam Tamimi, has just been arrested at his home by the IOF. To rub salt in the wound, the Israeli Education Minister has recommended that Ahed Tamimi, age 16, should spend the rest of her life in an Israeli prison.

  1. Ahed vs. “big” Jewish men:
    ‘The 70 minors, ages 12 to 17, are but a sample of the hundreds of Palestinian minors arrested this year by the Israeli army. The final figures for 2016 and this year haven’t been submitted yet… The 540 minors whose testimonies were taken from the beginning of 2013 to the end of November 2017 represent about 14 percent of all the minor detainees during those five years… The large majority, 79 percent, reported that they were made to sign documents written only in Hebrew – another procedure branded by human rights organizations as illegal.’

    An Israeli’s opinion:
    ‘A Girl’s Chutzpah: Three Reasons a Palestinian Teenage Girl Is Driving Israel Insane
    Ahed Tamimi, 16, is a heroine, a Palestinian heroine. Maybe the intifada of slappings will succeed where all other methods of resistance have failed.’

    1. Slappings may succeed in unexpected ways:

    2. Snez,
      Great masculino specimens these IDF pussy-boys. They lack the courage to assault, in broad day-light even women and children. Best to do it 4:00 am. With this kind of opposition, no wonder the rest of the World is laughing at them. The female IDF have more balls “huevos” than the “men,” most of them flaming homos anyway. My Jewish grandfather, though viruntly pro-Israel hated homos. While serving in the South Pacific during WW2, he described how he and the “boyz” offered the “Dasani” toilet-bowl drinking water to at least a few flaming homos prancing around on ship. My point is that at the end of the day a nation is its people and the people the nation. With the kinds of cowards serving in IDF, you Palestinians dont have much to worry about. Your women have balls of steel. Their men have no balls at all. This is the statement of Donaldo Colina today. Buenas noches.

      1. I needI recall sitting in on a presentation at a Jew Worshiping ” Judeo Christian Independent Fundamentalist Bybull Believing Church ” , as a teen . The Pastors wifey ( Hey ,I not a sheep ) , showed a glowing presentation about the ” glorious Israeli Armed Forces “. I didn’t buy it then ,and as an adult ,who has learned the truth about the machinations of world Jewry ,have it confirmed what vile vermin they are . The IDF ,hides behind a huge technology advantage given to them by International Jew Occupied America, Britian,and Germany…of course Industrial Espionage ,and spy’s like Jonathan Pollard do the rest . Having the USA overthrow Arab Nationalism ,and chopping up the Middle East ,along with their defacto alliance with the Gulf States, does the rest on the strategic level . However, in tactical set piece battle Yahweh genocidal soldiers fall apart. Clad in body armor , and those bed pan helmuts they can do best with children . Jews are not Warriors. They do best using dumb Goyim doing the heavy duty work for them. Tamani Blondness infuriates then more . The Jews have an instinctive hatred for the fair .

  2. Very good summation of the this latest outrage against human life, let alone the right to live with dignity. Dignity and the very basic human need to provide for his family is what inspired the fruit seller of Tunisia. These infamies only reach the MSM when they go “viral”, but are far more frequent than most are aware.

    Avigdor Lieberman shows palpable signs of madness. His inhuman public expressions and murderous positions are incompatible with high office. No other leader in the world expresses himself in such a primitive and degenerate way.

    Although it may not be apparent, in the last post my comments were intended to lead to providing citizens of all nations, particularly the USA and UK, with a simple outline that is offered as a point of general agreement from which more talented individuals could work from as a useful means to address the ongoing horror in Palestine, as well as the EU, North America, and Asia.

    Points of agreement, outlining the major self evident aspects of the problem, provable to anyone by the simplest inquiry or presentation of evidence Zionist criminals are so desperate to conceal. As Carnaptious noted, the traditional method of writing letters to Congressmen doesn’t seem to be a very productive avenue these days in regard to these glaring problems. A simple list of coalescence might be useful as a starting point to work from. Despite our differences, the writers and commentators seem to agree on certain elements in general – to us this may seem obvious, but to the millions who need awakening a simple outline might be a useful starting point. We’ve reached an intolerable state of affairs.

    Thanks so much again to Dr. LD, Administration, and insightful commentators.

    1. Hello Winston,
      “Avigdor Lieberman shows palpable signs of madness….No other leader in the world expresses himself in such a primitive and degenerate way.” No doubt when Harold reads that he’ll have something to say about it. LOL.

      1. FollyofWar

        The former ‘leader’ of Uganda Idi Amin was pretty bad. He retired in a “hurry” to Arabia, followed later by Ben Ali of Tunisia, who was more careful with his statements, but had a thoroughly corrupt management. The statements made by many recent US politicians are remarkably stupid and inept. Despite all the bombast and bluster from Mr. Trump, my sense is he has a serious problem with self esteem, which makes “winning” his answer for everything – other possibilities are out of his depth, though the victories would be far sweeter. You expect this savagery from someone like Tom Friedman, but not a National “leader”.

        If you think of anything for what I mentioned about the points let me know. It’s time the world moves from being “re-active” to the situation and started being pro-active. A three level approach might be best; one for general public education, something like “The Five Points of Israeli Crimes Against Human Rights”, a second, more sophisticated statement, and a third with the full scope for Darkmoon Level persons.

        We could eventually get to another “When in the course of Human events…”

      2. Winston,
        In mentioning Harold Smith I was just trying to make a humorous point about his Trump Derangement Syndrome, and his annoying (to me anyway) insistence in always addressing him as Orange Clown.

      3. FollyofWar

        No need to explain, Folly. Some levity is really good, and it reminds me not to take myself too seriously as well. Given the topic and the increasing gravity of the situation, it’s therapeutic.

        It’s hard to imagine someone like Avigdor Lieberman rising to a level above municipal dog catcher a scant few decades ago, that kind of diarrhea of the mind and mouth simply wasn’t acceptable among educated voters – the degeneration Israel pushes everywhere seems to have infected their own as well. The terrorist founders were pretty bad and were murderous, inhuman monsters who made some very sick statements but to my knowledge none were as crude or primitive. But most of them grew up in civilized countries.

        (((They))) are slipping, slowly but surely.

  3. The Zionist entity, by its actions, negates its right to exist.
    This young girl, by her actions, showed the world how the Zionist entity shall fail.

    1. God bless Ahed Tamimi and family. She is a hero to her Nation. As an Aussie born Arab i’m very proud to be of kindred blood to this girl. Trump’s stupidity 6 dec 2017 sets Palestine free of the tyranny of america as a false peace mediator. I pray for Freedom for Palestine.

  4. Mahmoud,
    This article arouses two emotions in me; anger at the bestial cruelty of the Zionist interlopers, sadness at the tragedy of a beautiful and courageous young lady being treated in such an abominable fashion.
    The Jewish interlopers have long since expended any sympathy they may have had from their bogus “holocaust”. It’s time for the world to finally deal with the Jewish problem. Ship them all to the Malvinas or the Kerguelen Archipelago.

    1. If it is out of question to exile them to another galaxy far, far away, at least Mars would do. As long as everyone of these monsters have to go. Just send them there and drop them off. No technology, no nothing. Then they can have their JWO there for all I care. Nobody will hear their kvetching except maybe primitive lifeforms like bacteria. I don’t think they will even notice if they get called goyim by their new neighbours.

      1. Morningstar,
        Evil “must” have a victim. Youre right. The primitive bacteria of some remote planet would quickly become the new goy to be detested, abused and forced to pay exorbant taxes. 🙂

  5. Israel is doing to the Palestinians what the Nazis did to the jews in the Warsaw ghetto and by this the Zionists are showing again that they have no regard for the lives of non jews.

      Funny that ADL keeps reminding us with their infamous mantra, “Never Again!”
      Looks like this phrase applies to Jews only.

  6. @Mahmoud El-Yousseph

    Thank you for writing this article. I was thinking about writing something on the Tamimi family’s plight, but found myself darn near speechless with a variety of emotions. That’s when I decided to take a few days off from the internet, to enjoy the beauty of the season, and some of life’s simple pleasures.

    Merry Christmas to all. ☃

    1. Carnaptious

      This was not easy to write for me either, things kept changing by the hour as I sat down to write Ahed and her family. First, she was kidnapped, then her mother was put under arrest when she went to support her at Benjamin Occupation police station. After that no one in her family knew where Ahed and her mother were detained. When Ahed father posted their story on his fb, the IOF returned to the house, arrested him and stole all cell phone, computers, cameras and lap top. The following day, an israeli court extended the detention of Ahed and her mother Narihan for 2 days. Hours later the military stated that their detention was extended to another 10 days. It was very emotional and fast moving event for me as the one who is writing the story. I am sure it was an emotional roller-coaster and torture to the family, who still have I believe two or three minor children still at home. If I did not write about the suffering Ahed Tamimi and her family, who would?

      1. My internet break was short lived. When I fired up the laptop this AM to look at the weather report (it snowed here last night), the news at my homepage, Antiwar dot com, reminded me of why it’s necessary to take breaks occasionally.

        On the topic of writing about Ahed Tamimi, there are many doing so, most – including me – lacking any genuine perspective on what it means to be a Palestinian, including this young Jewish woman who compares her 16th year with Ahed’s. Many Israelis and diaspora Jews claim Ahed only slapped the IDF trooper because “she knew nothing would happen to her”, but what about these folks: ?

        Also at AW.c today, Pres. Trump “Says US ‘Foolishly Spent $7 Trillion in the Middle East’”, and an article about Nikki Haley “taking names” at the UN that answers “the Bush question “Why do they hate us?””. The author of this article notes, correctly, that the question has rarely been so easy to answer.

        And last but not least… Some of the $7 trillion “foolishly spent in the Middle East” went to support KSA’s war on Yemen’s civilian population, a war that has now produced “A ‘Hideous Milestone’ in Yemen: One Million Cases of Cholera” A US State Dept. spokesperson said there is “No Military Solution to Ending Yemen War”, but apparently the war will continue, anyway, because the USSD “Official Blames Houthis for Continuing to ‘Menace’ Saudi Invaders”.

        And that’s a quick round-up of the “One can’t make up this stuff” news from Dec 23rd at AW.c! 😥

        Back on internet free hiatus I go.

        Thanks for that link, Winston. I’ve got it bookmarked for after Christmas.

  7. @Mahmoud El-Yousseph
    Thanks for writing that. We must remember though that the IDF is the most moral army, not only in their own tiny minds, but in the whole wide world!!!! Beating women, children and weak old men is their trade mark, shame on them.
    You wrote;
    “You can’t toss a snake into a cradle and then act surprised if the baby get bitten.”
    The Palestinians know how to deal with the jew snakes, starts 3.30mins, if you’re short on time start at 6.48mins 😉 ;

    Mahmoud, what’s your take on Leila Khaled and other female freedom fighters?

    1. Jimbo

      There warrant arrest against several of high ranking ISISraeli military officials in various Europeans nation for war crimes they committed in Gaza during the last 3 major assualta against the strip in Dec., 2008- Jan.,2009, 2012, and 2014.

      Funny you asked about Liela Khaled. She is a veteran freedom fighter. I have her picture on my fb cover picture along with Rachel Corrie for the last 9 years, until Ahed Tamimi’s kidnapping. Ahed is now seen as Palestine sweet heart and ISISrael’s worse nightmare. She reminds more Rachel Corrie and Rosa Parks.

        Did you watch the ‘snake handler’ video that I linked to? From what I understand, through translating the comment section under the video, he is a Palestinian who looks after injured animals for a small charge or for free.
        “…war crimes they committed in Gaza during the last 3 major assualta against the strip…”
        Yes I listened to Harry Fear’s live radio broadcasts from Gaza at the time – horrific what them cowardly jew bastards rained down on the innocents of Gaza.

  8. Off topic, but relevant: Mahmoud refers to the Jews as “snakes”, thus invoking the imagery of the diabolical serpent creatures who have been spoken about in the annals of the histories of the most ancients.
    Whilst we are going to reveal the fools of Flat Earth theory, perhaps we could have a look at David Icke’s theory that our planet is run by evil-intent reptilians, in league, of course, with the Jews and the Goyim elite.
    Recent exposes on the reptilian nature and form of the Pope’s Audience Hall are most interesting. See the work by Joe Martino. No crosses or traditional Christian symbols are to be found in this huge hall which inside and out is clearly a serpent’s head.
    Perhaps we are dealing with a diabolical force that is far worse than imagined; and a force that is not only visibly slaughtering Arab-Semitic people, but, in the long run will destroy all of us.
    My Aussie mate, Mel Gibson, has just repeated Brad Pitt”s claims that Hollywood is the home of child-flesh-eating paedophiles. Lizards are attracted to human flesh and Jews harvest the valuable organs which are sold around the planet. Arab children are easy to procure.

    1. Max,
      Yes. Icke has researched extensively on this subject. Hes no dunce. A brillante mind. The serpiente symbols are all around us. My favorite one is the serpiente rapped around a staff with the six-pointed navy-blue symbol in the background. This decal exists on almost every ambulance in the U.S. Should we feel in good hands being rushed to hospital? 🙂

      1. Don –

        That is known as a caduceus:

        Some accounts suggest that the oldest known imagery of the caduceus have their roots in a Mesopotamian origin with the Sumerian god Ningishzida whose symbol, a staff with two snakes intertwined around it, dates back to 4000 B.C. to 3000 B.C.

  9. How dare this human “insect” lay a hand on one of God’s armed apples. Off with her head. Drown her and her family in the briny deep. Lock them up for life. “Oy Vey”! Sooo many choices.
    Then there is “… legislation H.R. 4391 that Congresswoman Betty McCollum(D-MN) (bless her heart) just introduced to end the abuse and detention of Palestinian children.” Hell will freeze over before the boot lickers in Congress, assembled to do just that, pass any legislation in a futile attempt to rein in God’s chosen abusers.
    And if by some miracle this legislation does pass it would have the effect of pissing into the wind along with howls of protest from the mouth frothing Christian Zionists. Or is it Zionist Christians?
    How do Darkmooners like the copper top bragging how the US beat ISIS, while all the while the US was arming, funding and training the same? (Shades of John McCain). Is the Trumpman that obtuse to not know it was the Russians that helped the Syrians clean ISIS out of Syria and Iraq while Israel was bombing Syrian military positions. I think not.
    But the Trumpsters pretend obtuseness knows to bounds by moving the US Embassy to Jerusalem and what that will mean to the Palestinians living on their soon to be occupied and stolen half of the city.
    This brings us around to the Tamimi family. Can there be any doubt that the Israeli government, most likely frustrated and angry having their factotums getting their butts kicked in and out of Syria, with take out their Old Testament like vengeance on the already brutalized Palestinians?
    TJ wonders if the future moving of the US Embassy to Jerusalem is but a sop to placate the hurt feelings of the Israeli government for Syria slipping from their mitts and putting on hold, for now, their dreams of a “Greater Israel” imperium.
    Unable to take out Syria and Syria’s invited helpers, the fully armed Israeli storm troopers prefer the odds of coming up against a16 years old unarmed Palestinian girl and her mighty hand.

    1. Mr. Trump’s delusional “we beat ISIS” shows how pathetic and desperate he really is.

      Another one for the monkey house.

    2. @ toejamicusRep, Betty McCollum (D-MN-4th district) is the most patriotic and courageous lawmaker to have served in US Congress. This woman is an iron will lady. She has in the past banned the American Israel Public Affairs Committee (AIPAC) from her office until she received a formal, written apology from AIPAC for equating her vote in the House International Relations Committee against HR 4681, the Palestinian Anti-Terrorism Act, with “support for terrorists.”

      The following “Letter to AIPAC” from Rep. McCollum will be published in the June 8th edition of the New York Review of Books with a long piece by Michael Massing (“The Storm over the Israel Lobby”). Massing includes the letter as evidence to support his thesis that the tactics of the Israel lobby are harsh, and often extremely effective, in pursuing its objectives: “to keep Israel strong, the Palestinians weak, and the United States from exerting pressure on Israel.” I kept a copy of her letter to AIPAC- the unregistered foreign agents traitors.

      1. Good work, the wheat must be separated from the chaff, those ( few ) good free political rep’s should receive support,and the Zionist, should be scrutinized, and any useful information made public, there are hundreds of Zionist/Zionist controlled political rep’s, there must be some with dirty secrets, even if a only a few had their dirty secrets exposed, and it became public knowledge that they where exposed due to their being compromised by Zionist interests, and that being compromised by Zionist interests means, you may be targeted, would create a new dynamic.

    3. I once met a Palestinian man at a truckstop in Tennessee. He explained to me that many present-day Palestinians actually have ancient Hebrew bloodlines. Throughout the centuries, many converted to Islam. Looks like the Khazar serpients are actually persecuting “the real Jews.”

  10. Jews will construe this as extremely dangerous, but one has to wonder why jihad-enacting Muslim men continue to drive motor vehicles into innocent Goyim targets – as in Melbourne, Australia, a couple of days ago.
    In Melbourne there are large enclaves of resident Jews, such as in East Malvern, Elsternwick and Caulfield. Why aren’t the jihadi murderers driving their vehicles in those areas?
    As with 9/11, Jews appear to be protected from these sorts of onslaughts. We all should know the reasons why, just as we should know who collected $millions in insurance from the planned detonations of the WTC towers.
    Western-based jihadists seem more content in maiming and killing Goyim women and children.
    And really, how difficult a-target are such arch fiends as the scumbags Soros, Schumer, Adelson, Emanuel and the 80 or so dual citizen members of the USA Congress? These are the scumbag fiends who are destroying the USA and murdering countless millions.
    Where is the huge political-resistance movement that should be a given in the supposed “land of the free”?
    How much more Jewish-Communist evil can the people of the planet take?
    Where are the leaders? Where is the will and courage?
    Could Icke be correct? Have the reptilians mutated amongst many of us? Is the continual sticking out of the tongue a sign of lizardhood? Is the long tongued, Jewish rock ban, Kiss, a symbol of the reptile age.
    Jewish tourists sat on their picnic chairs enjoying the rockets exploding among the Palestinians’ houses and schools – Gaza 2008.

    1. “Jewish rock ban, Kiss,”
      Slightly off topic but coincidentally I was watching Gene Simmons (the long tongued jew from Kiss) giving his tribal damage limitation bullshit opinion about the Weinstein abuse case. After the interview he was banned for inappropriate behavior;

      Terry Crews assaulted by jew Adam Venit;

      Venit is an agent from the Endeavor Talent Agency nest of snakes;

  11. Though it is well-deserved, slapping the soldier in the face was probably not a good idea. Why not? Christ Jesus explained over 2000 years ago why that behaviour does not work. The lack of Justice there and everywhere is people not enforcing The Law of God/Torah.

    The ‘New Song’

    Matthew 5:38 Ye have heard that it hath been said, An eye for an eye, and a tooth for a tooth:
    5:39 But I say unto you, Do not resist evil (with evil): but whosoever shall smite thee on thy right cheek, turn to him the other also (and thereby neutralize the evil with good).
    5:40 And if any man will sue thee at the law, and take away thy coat, let him have [thy] cloke also.
    5:41 And whosoever shall compel thee to go a mile, go with him two.
    5:42 Give to him that asketh thee, and from him that would borrow of thee turn not thou away.
    5:43 Ye have heard that it hath been said, Thou shalt love thy neighbour, and hate thine enemy.
    5:44 But I say unto you, Love your enemies, bless them that curse you, do good to them that hate you, and pray for them which despitefully use you, and persecute you;
    5:45 That ye may be the children of your Father which is in heaven: for He maketh His sun to rise on the evil and on the good, and sendeth rain on the just and on the unjust.
    5:46 For if ye love them which love you, what reward have ye? do not even the tax-collectors the same?
    5:47 And if ye salute your brethren only, what do ye more [than others]? do not even the tax-collectors so?
    5:48 Be ye therefore perfect, even as your Father which is in heaven IS perfect.

    1. @ New Song

      What an incredible stupid comment.So what do you expect the Palestinians to do? Love their Israeli enemies? Offer their cheeks for “smiting”? Your comment is as sanctimoniously holier-than-thou and hypocritical as it is stupid.

      1. @ Bradley Arnold, (re New Song’s advice to the Palestinians to “love” the Israeli Enemy and “turn the other cheek” to them):

        “Your comment is as sanctimoniously holier-than-thou and hypocritical as it is stupid.”

        A bit harsh. You must make allowances for this well-meaning but emotionally insensitive and intellectually subnormal commenter. She does her best, but is hampered by the fact that she was born with fewer brain cells than the average person. We must do our best, especially as it is Christmas, not to discriminate against morons or say bad things about them during this season of universal good will.

      2. @ Sardonicus

        Please don’t ever put in a good word for me!
        I dread your praise even more than your blame.

      3. Merry Christmas, New Song!
        Don’t let these horrid misogynists get you down!
        Screw ’em! 🙂

    2. So New Song,
      You believe that if an Israeli soldier belts you with his rifle on the right cheek, you should then turn your face so that he/she can also belt you on the left cheek? THEN YOU’D HAVE 2 FRACTURED CHEEK BONES!
      So Palestinians should “love” their colonising, messianic Jewish settlers and give them their coats if it gets cold?
      And then you should lie prone on your back with your legs in the air so your good neighbour, whom you love, can suitably persecute you? What if he rapes you?
      Got all that Gilby and Donaldo! Now go and be perfect, “even as your Father which is in heaven.”
      I’d rather join TROJ and his Hezbollah brigade!

      1. @ Lisa

        You’ve said that before. Not a very original thought. It’s been said by millions of others before you and remains a “value judgment”, i.e., a non-factual statement which can never be proved. It’s a bit like me saying, “I don’t like Beethoven’s Ninth Symphony. Isn’t it awful?”

        Is the Ninth Symphony awful because I say so?

      2. Is the Christmas turkey to be avoided at all costs as a meat that should never be eaten?

        A vegan would certainly think so.

        But is the vegan “right”? 🙂

      3. Sard –

        “Is the Christmas turkey to be avoided at all costs as a meat that should never be eaten?”

        The excess pyrodoxine hydrochloride (B-6)in the white meat will cause cancer. Eat only the dark meat, sparingly.

        Eat MORE parsley..!! 🙂

      4. Max,
        “Turn the other cheek” or “love thine enemy” are just other examples of how the Bible has been misinterpreted. If someone assualts myself or a family member, first and foremost, its my duty to beat the s.o.b. to a pulp. Afterwards, to show my “love” , Ill call an ambulance to pick up the pieces.

      We Buddhists have a prayer that all beings be free from suffering. However in my considered opinion Jews are anti-beings in the same way we have anti-matter. So the Jews because of their desire to be above the human race are in effect anti-humans. They plan to murder most of the human race, and enslave the remainder, as evidenced from the Torah, the Talmud, the Protocols of the Learned Elders of Zion and the Project for the New American Century. There can be no misunderstanding about this, they are the gravest threat to humanity. Forget China, Russia, North Korea and so on. It’s the Jews and only the Jews. So just as are our bodies make antibodies to counter microbes, we must fight Jewry in the same way. Send them all to some isolated corner of the planet where they can practise their barbaric, atavistic and thunder god religion.

    4. @ Sardonicus et al

      Your lack of understanding anything related to Truth is astounding. I support enforcing The Law of God/Torah. That hardly supports turning the other cheek as you and others have presumed I or Jesus meant. When in slavery, (YES, YOU ARE A SLAVE ALSO), one is not in a position to slap the enemy unless they are equipped to defend themselves.

      Back off with your ad hominen attacks, and try to actually learn something for a change!

      The ‘New Song’

      1. New Song,
        I like you, New Song! You’re a fighter. I respect that even though I think you are misguided. You’d go down well with Aussies. They love to fight, afterwards they go and have a beer together. When I was living in Darwin in the 60s you’d be sitting having a drink in a pub and might receive a tap on the shoulder with a very polite request; “Yer wanna fight mate?” Of course I heard this from my dad, he’d sometimes come home with the odd black eye. I was too young to enter a pub. Back in those days in Aussie land, even women weren’t allowed. They’d have a lady’s lounge they could drink in. The Northern Territory back in those days was the best husband hunting country in the world. Four blokes to one sheila. In school my best mates were those I’d had a fight with, win or lose. You should move there, New Song. With your feistiness you’d get on well. Leave America, go to “godzone” country.

      2. New Song

        YOU’RE the one who needs to learn something for a change

        You’re not even DEBATING me. Whaddup with that?

  12. FACT – – – If those women had slapped, pushed and kicked the police in the US…. they would have been beaten to a pulp on the spot.


    Their physical positions and actions have nothing in common with Rosa Parks or Rachael Corrie.

    The land is occupied. They need more than the women and children to fight and blow themelves up.

      “If those women had slapped, pushed and kicked the police in the US…”
      And there’s the rub, it ain’t the US it’s Palestine. If it were Lebanon two jews wouldn’t even be walking around in military gear armed to the teeth pushing the local civilian population about.
      Come on Pat if an occupying force had taken over your village killing and maiming your family and friends for 70 years you’d be resisting. It’s not as though nothing has happened to Ahed, she’s in custody now suffering god knows what at the hand of the jews.

      “They need more than the women and children to fight and blow themelves up.”
      Haha I saw what you did there ‘them elves’, very festive! Is there a connection between elves and jews? 🙂

      Seriously though, you’re not suggesting that the only resistance action taking place is by the women and children?
      What form do you suggest the resistance should take? cheers.

        The musselmen need to step up..!!

      2. Pat
        With all your wit and intelligence, I was rather disappointed by your comments regarding the Tamimi women. You seem to blame the victims.

        The last time the IOF were humiliated was during the in 2006, during the 33 Day Israeli war on Lebanon, when Hezbullah kicked ISISrael’s ass and the IOF left Lebanon in disgrace and weeping.
        Yes, Ahed Tamimi could have ignored the IOF daily crimes against her own poeple, mind her own business and then pursue college for free but if you have applied your logic to what Rosa Parks have done, no one would have boycott the public buses in Montgomery, Alabama and African Americans would still be sitting in the back of the buses and they will not have civil rights today.

        Palestinians do not need to have their women and children being blown up to free their country. I don’t know where you come up with this crap. The Algerians did not do it, but they get their freedom after 8 years of resistance and after they lost 1.5 million people in the war of Independence from France.

        Finally, you state, The musselmen need to step up..!! There is no such thing as “musselmen”. It is called Muslims! So, please show some respect and stop spreading ignorance on this site about Islam and Muslims.

        You are thoroughly confused.

        I blame the musselmen who travel by the millions to Mecca instead of going to help the Palestinian women and children fight for freedom

        I blame YOU..!!!

        “I wrote…”
        No you didn’t, you wrote like I said “themelves” otherwise me joke and info link wouldna worked. Hey where’s grammar fiend when you need him? 🙂

      5. Jimbo –

        Thanks for parsing every one of my words… even typing errors.

        My critics are my most faithful followers.

        I LUVVITT..!! Now, parse THAT..!! 🙂 🙂

    2. Pat,
      If memory serves TJ believes that Rosa Parks, wasn’t a common run of the mill Black lady off the street. She was a secretary in the NAACP and put up for her little stunt about where to ride in the bus. TJ used to ride the bus in this University town on the left coast of the People’s Republic of Oregon. Guess where the Black students like to ride. That’s right, the back of the bus.

  13. It seems that Trump’s job is to turn the world against the US. It is possible that Orwell was right about the corporate plan to divide the globe into 3 regions for easier control. As for the “chosen” who have subdued the west without weapons and physical force, whatever they are [reptiles, aliens, a bad gene or a wrong ideology], there is one thing the Jew can’t see, and it is how dangerous masses are when they have nothing, or little, to lose. From an article referred to by Carnaptious:
    ‘The ultimate objective of the Israel Lobby is to follow the example in some European countries, where criticism of Israel is equated to anti-Semitism and is therefore categorized as a hate crime, with both civil and criminal penalties attached… On December 12th the Anti-Semitism Awareness Act was approved by the House of Representatives with 402 affirmative votes and only two libertarian-leaning congressmen voting “no.” The Israel Anti-Boycott Act that is also currently making its way through the Congress would far exceed what is happening at the state level and would set a new standard for deference to Israeli interests on the part of the national government. It would criminalize any U.S. citizen “engaged in interstate or foreign commerce” who supports a boycott of Israel or who even goes about “requesting the furnishing of information” regarding it, with penalties enforced through amendments of two existing laws, the Export Administration Act of 1979 and the Export-Import Act of 1945, that include potential fines of between $250,000 and $1 million and up to 20 years in prison. According to the Jewish Telegraph Agency, the Senate bill was drafted with the assistance of AIPAC.’

  14. @ sardonicus, you are correct I have said it before like many posters on this site keep repeating the same opinions, themes.

  15. NEW SONG has a valid point so is Pat
    Ahed name in Arabic means convent ,how ironic is what her name means.
    it’s a patriotic nationalist convent with her people and her nation which is under occupation.
    Merry Christmas to everyone from Christ’s stolen Land

  16. Pat,

    There is an Arabic idiomatic expression that says, “The critic could not find anything wrong to shame the red rose with, so, they told her that her cheeks are red.”

    Feliz navidad, Pat!

    1. Mahmoud El-Yousseph –

      I wrote my own idiomatic expression that says:
      “They need more than the women and children to fight and blow themselves up.”

      Feliz navidad, Mahmoud El-Yousseph!

  17. Mahmoud,

    Thank you for putting together the concise, chronological facts on this ever-developing outrage. Rather than fool around with contacting the Israeli officials (although I’m all for flooding their phone lines and e-mail just to annoy them), better results might come from contacting Turkey’s Erdogan. While I’ve not been a huge fan of him in the past, he does like to do things for public relations and made some strong remarks about Trump’s Jerusalem declaration. Pres. Erdogan also met with Ahed Tamimi when she was awarded the Handala prize for courage in Istanbul back in 2012. His e-mail is: [email protected] Perhaps appeal to his regional influence and beg him to take some action.

  18. Here in London, unknown supporters of the extraordinarily brave young heroine Ahed Tamini put up beautiful posters showing her confronting an Israeli soldier. As far as I am able to ascertain, no mainstream British paper even noticed these posters. But the Jewish News crowed today that the firm responsible for advertising in London transport spaces, JCDecaux, had taken the posters down, deemed them ‘an act of vandalism’ and apologised for them, pointing out that it had not approved them: .

    Sometimes it is all but impossible not to hate.

    1. “Sometimes it is all but impossible not to hate.”

      Hating the hateful is a healthy response, Sophie. Don’t ever force yourself to love the hissing serpent and the scorpion that is about to sting you to death. Crush them under your heel and take pleasure in it.

      1. I would suggest that JCDecaux should be reminded that apologizes to serpents comes with a price tag.
