NOTE - WATCH CAREFULLY THE VIDEO THEY SHOW WITHIN THE TV SHOW -
One of the soldiers actually slaps Ahed then hits her, BEFORE she slaps his face ... before, she is pushing him, shoving - to get them off the Tamimi land ...


Strangely - Care2 tells me the video can't be seen - yet I can see it!!

Thank you dor posting this, Evelyn..

This is what I see and believe what happened; because the soldiers are not allowed on the family property, they do not have a search warrant, and when the soldier raises his arm and strikes, it is only some time after, that Ahed strikes back, after first, having walked away, toward the other soldier.

This whole things is deplorable. The Israeli occupation forces (IOF) are the cause of this, they should not have been there. It was harassment.
But this happens over and over.

End the occupation!! and - all U>S> aid to Israel.

Thank you for posting this. he world needs to see. It has nothing to do with the shade of Ahed's hair, or anything to do with her physique - all red herrings - including, allusions to Joan of Arc.
Furthermore, smears and distractions are to change the subject, spread by those, intent on deceiving the world, and some, likely, secretly in admiration .. or jealous of real courage by a young girl, against tyrannical, abusive illegal occupiers.

(Though it's no surprise, vicious envy and gossip, common as it is, among some groups and individual

Ahed Tamimi's Relative 1st Palestinian killed by Israel in 2018
4 January 2018

People gather around the body of Mosab Tamimi, who was killed during clashes with Israeli troops, at a hospital in the West Bank city of Ramallah Jan. 3, 2018.

Musaab Tamimi was shot at close range by Israeli soldiers during a raid on one of the villages where the Tamimis have been persecuted for years.

Musaab Firas Tamimi, 17, was shot and killed Wednesday by Israeli occupation forces near Ramallah in the West Bank, making him Israel’s first victim in the year 2018 amid major clashes between Palestinians and Israeli soldiers in the West Bank and Gaza.

Tamimi was shot by an Israeli soldier, reportedly at a close range, in Deir Nitham village after occupation forces raided the village.

"He died shortly after the occupation forces fired a bullet into his neck," Maria Aqraa, a spokesman for the Palestinian health ministry, told Al-Jazeera Wednesday. "He was transferred to a hospital in Ramallah and he passed away minutes later."

Israeli officials told local media that Tamimi was shot after he appeared to be carrying a gun. The Times of Israel reported the army saying it was "not immediately confirmed that Tamimi had been armed at the time of the shooting."

The slain teen is also a relative of Ahed Tamimi, the iconic revolutionary teen who was arrested and charged with assaulting an Israeli soldier and throwing stones after a video of her slapping an Israeli soldier in her home’s yard in the nearby village of Nabi Saleh went viral. It was revealed later that the Palestinian girl was upset after soldiers had shot her 14-year-old cousin in the face a day earlier.

The Israeli occupation has been actively persecuting the family for decades over their weekly protests against the theft of their lands in favor of the illegal Jewish settlement of Halamish near their villages. Several members of the family have been detained and killed over the years.

"The occupation army has been raiding both Deir Nitham and Nabi Saleh day in and day out. They come in, irritate the residents, raid our homes at night and throw sound bombs in the street. This has been our reality every day," Firas Tamimi, Mussab’s father, told Al-Jazeera.

"We cannot just keep quiet and keep watching. No one is listening to us - no one feels the pain that we're going through. The world is just silently watching."

According to a tally by Ma’an news agency Tamimi was the 14th Palestinian to have been killed by Israel since U.S. President Donald Trump recognized Jerusalem as the capital of Israel last month, sparking widespread protests across the West Bank, gaza, and East jerusalem.

The discussion here - and the analysis in the article (link given above) - show how "easy" it is for the "average" Israeli to remain genuinely unaware of questions they SHOULD be asking.

On the one side, the official narrative leans on the fears that so many Jews have (and with some historic foundation ... although not actually in the Arab World - a fact carefully being washed out of what they're taught) of being hated and attacked BECAUSE they're Jews. And on the other side is the self-righteousness & pride in the "Jewish homeland" and all that represents it, including its government and its soldiers - and the official narrative feeds this image of "most moral", not allowing mere facts to get in the way ...

This is politics, not religion - nor race. But even among liberals, the idea of actually questioning, testing for veracity, doesn't enter their heads. And it is so much easier that way - because criticism can then be written off as "anti-Semitism", "racism" ... the "fear foundation" makes it easy to believe such judgement.

What will it take to trigger the questioning that is so desperately needed if real justice is to be possible? And THAT is essential if changes are to take place that would allow peace to be built.

NEWS - VIDEO Mohammed Tamimi, 19, seized by occupation forces as global solidarity escalates.
12 January 2018

The ongoing Israeli harassment and targeted oppression of the Tamimi family, organizers in the anti-colonial land defense and popular resistance in the Palestinian village of Nabi Saleh, continued in the pre-dawn hours of 11 January. While 16-year-old activist Ahed Tamimi and her mother Nariman remain in Israeli prison, facing a series of charges before an Israeli military court, Israeli occupation forces raided the family home of Manal and Bilal Tamimi, seizing their 19-year-old son Mohammed. Manal, Mohammed’s mother, was released one week ago after nearly a week in Israeli prison.


VIDEO
https://www.facebook.com/Shashaps/videos/1881084728568796/

Mohammed smiled and raised his fingers in the “victory” sign as he was taken from his family home surrounded by occupation soldiers. Manal later reported on Facebook that her son is currently being held in the infamous Petah Tikva interrogation center. He is the latest member of the Tamimi family to be targeted in an ongoing series of raids and and arrests in the village of Nabi Saleh and the neighboring village of Deir Nizam, both near Ramallah. Nabi Saleh, a village of 600, has become a center of popular organizing and indigenous land defense after the illegal settlement of Halamish has stolen the village’s agricultural land as well as its spring.

Ahed and Nariman’s imprisonment has drawn international attention; Ahed’s cousin Nour is also facing several charges before an Israeli military court. The military courts have a conviction rate of over 99 percent, and the two women are charged with incitement for political posts on social media, “assault” on an occupation soldier on their family’s land, and throwing stones, among other allegations. The “assault” charges refer to the livestreamed interaction in which Ahed and Nour demand an occupation soldier leave their home; he was attempting to move to higher ground on the family’s land in order to position himself to shoot at demonstrators in the village. After being slapped by the soldier, Ahed slapped the occupation soldier with her bare hand.

Ahed’s 15-year-old cousin Mohammed was shot in the head by a rubber-coated metal bullet and was in a coma for days; he continues to struggle with serious injuries. Last week, another Tamimi cousin, Musa’ab, 17, was shot and killed by occupation forces in the village of Deir Nizam, the first Palestinian killed in 2018.

As the repression targeting the Tamimi family has continued and intensified, Palestinian and international support for Ahed Tamimi and her family has only grown. Ahed, who has traveled to South Africa, Europe, Lebanon and elsewhere to speak about the Palestinian struggle, is an internationally-known leader in the indigenous land defense movement. She has been involved in the movement in Nabi Saleh since she was only 11 years old.

Protests are continuing around the world to demand Ahed’s freedom and that of the other 6,200 Palestinian political prisoners in Israeli jails. Upcoming protests are scheduled in London (on both 12 January and 13 January), Saint-Etienne, Brussels, Rosario, Montevideo, Sydney, Toulouse, Dublin, Braga, Porto, Lisbon, Rome, New York City, Portland, Copenhagen, Berlin, Washington, DC, Arlington and elsewhere.

Street visual actions are also taking place to highlight Ahed’s case and the Palestinian struggle for freedom. In London, grassroots activists put up “guerilla” transit ads and posters on bus stops and Tube trains throughout the city. @Protestencil on Twitter has made the stencil-style posters available for download and use in supporters’ local cities.

London Palestine Action has highlighted the ongoing appearance of these “adhacks” throughout London, bringing Ahed’s case and the struggle of Palestinian child prisoners to the streets of the UK capital. Italian activists in Venice replicated the posters on the streets of the city as well:

On the streets of Berlin, Jewish Antifa Berlin shared images of large stickers and posters highlighting Ahed Tamimi’s case and those of the Tamimi women posted on signboards and advertising spaces around the German capital city. Women in Berlin are also organizing a bloc for the women’s march on 21 January that will highlight Ahed’s case.

An international action week is taking place from 10 to 20 January, focusing on pressure on national parliamentarians in countries around the world to speak out about the case of Ahed Tamimi, including actions targeting Dutch, French, German and Portuguese politicians. In addition, UK minister of state for the Middle East Alistair Burt responded to questions from Labour MP Julie Elliott on 10 January by noting that “the soldiers should not be there and the young woman should not have needed to do what she did.” This followed an earlier Early Day Motion submitted by a multi-party group of parliamentarians on Ahed’s case.

**

Samidoun Palestinian Prisoner Solidarity Network denounces the arrest of Ahed Tamimi and Nariman Tamimi, the latest of well over 500 Palestinians arrested by Israeli occupation forces following U.S. President Donald Trump’s declaration of recognition of Jerusalem as the capital of Israel. Approximately half of those detained, like Ahed, Abdul-Khalik Burnat and Fawzi al-Junaidi, are children. There are hundreds of Palestinian children jailed by Israel and frequently subject to beatings, abuse, and interrogations without parents or lawyers present in violation of the law. We urge people of conscience around the world to take action to demand freedom for Ahed and her fellow detained and jailed Palestinian children in occupation detention centers, interrogation centers and prisons – and for Nariman Tamimi and all detained and imprisoned Palestinians.

The resistance of the Palestinian people has never been quelled by arrests or repression, and it must be clear that we, around the world, stand alongside the Palestinian people as they defend Jerusalem and their entire land and people under attack. This includes standing with detained and jailed Palestinian prisoners in their struggle for liberation for themselves, their people, and their occupied homeland.

TAKE ACTION:
1.For supporters in the US: Call your member of the House of Representatives to support H.R. 4391, the Promoting Human Rights by Ending Israeli Military Detention of Palestinian Children Act. Tell them specifically about Ahed’s arrest, and urge them to act for her release. Tell them to pressure Israel to free Ahed and other detained Palestinian kids. Call the House switchboard at (202) 224-3121 and ask to speak to your Representative’s office. CODEPINK has an action to highlight this case specifically.
2.Take action around the world: From 10 January to 20 January, there is an international week of action to contact local parliamentarians in each country and urge the freedom of Ahed Tamimi and her fellow Palestinian prisoners.
3.Call your nearest Israeli embassy and let them know that you know about the detention of Ahed Tamimi in Nabi Saleh and other Palestinian child prisoners. Demand Ahed, her mother Nariman, and the other detained children be immediately released. Contact infomation here: https://embassy.goabroad.com/embassies-of/israel
4.Sign the petition. Over 150,000 people have already signed on to demand freedom for Ahed: https://secure.avaaz.org/campaign/en/free_ahed/?feiNukb
5.Organize a protest for Ahed or join one of the many protests for Jerusalem and distribute this post and other news about Ahed and the Palestinian prisoners. Get others involved in the struggle for Palestinian freedom! Build the campaign for boycott, divestment and sanctions against Israel and complicit corporations like HP and G4S.
6.Write to Ahed, Nour and Nariman. While Zionist jailers frequently censor Palestinian prisoners’ mail, these letters can help bolster morale and even send a message to the jailers and censors themselves. Write to Ahed Tamimi, Nour Tamimi or Nariman Tamimi (choose one and address your letter to one only) at: HaSharon prison

this is sickening.

This is how the Israeli occupation forces under the Israeli government, conducts ethnic cleansing, by crushing dissension and those who speak up against Israeli occupation landthefts-annexations of their homes and resources and Israeli crimes against humanity, and violations of Palestinian civilians, children and their families human rights!

End the apartheid Israeli regime. Boycott, divest and sanction this racist state.

Lieberman imposes collective punishment on Tamimi family; Nabi Saleh declared “closed military zone”.
13 January 2018

The Israeli occupation army has declared the Ramallah-area Palestinian village of Nabi Saleh to be a closed military zone in an attempt to suppress a planned demonstration in support of Jerusalem against Israeli ethnic cleansing and U.S. President Donald Trump’s declaration of recognizing it as the capital of Israel.

The mass march was attacked by Israeli occupation forces who fired large amounts of tear gas on the marchers, many of whom suffered as a result of inhaling tear gas. They also attacked the demonstration with rubber-coated metal bullets after surrounding the village and blocking the roads and entrances. Journalists seeking to attend the march were prevented from passing through the checkpoint and denied entry to Nabi Saleh.

This latest attack on Nabi Saleh, the village that has been at the center of an indigenous Palestinian land defense struggle after its land and spring were stolen by the illegal settlement of Halamish, comes in addition to repeated raids and arrests, particularly those targeting Ahed Tamimi and her family, one of the largest and most active families in the village.

The order comes shortly following the decision of far-right, racist Israeli Defense Minister Avigdor Lieberman’s collective punishment order against the Tamimi family. Bassem Tamimi, the father of Ahed and the husband of Nariman, Ahed’s mother, who is also imprisoned, was banned from traveling outside Palestine. Bassem was previously imprisoned for several years for his involvement in protests and was recognized as a prisoner of conscience by Amnesty International.

The Tamimi family have traveled to South Africa, Lebanon, Europe and elsewhere to speak about the situation in Nabi Saleh and the Palestinian people’s struggle for liberation. This comes as a clear attempt to cut off the Tamimi family from international support.

However, that international support has only continued to grow. In addition to protests in Sydney, Berlin, Athens, Rome, Porto, Lisbon, Dublin, New York, Brussels, Portland, Braga, Toulouse and elsewhere to demand freedom for Ahed Tamimi and her fellow Palestinian prisoners, French trade unionists also showed their support for Ahed. CGT railway workers at a conference in Versailles responded to the World Federation of Trade Unions’ call for solidarity:

Ahed is one of over 300 Palestinian children currently jailed by the Israeli occupation. Each year, approximately 700 Palestinian kids are brought before Israeli military courts and are frequently subject to beating, solitary confinement, physical and psychological abuse and other forms of cruel and inhumane treatment.

In addition, Lieberman withdrew the Israeli work permits of 20 Tamimi family members in an apparent attempt to impoverish the family into submission. Six Tamimi family members, including Mohammed Bilal Tamimi, the son of Manal Tamimi, earlier arrested and released, were also seized by occupation forces on Thursday in pre-dawn raids.

Justifying the collective punishment, Lieberman declared that “Dealing with Tamimi and her family has to be severe, exhaust all legal measures and generate deterrence” of involvement in popular Palestinian resistance.

Zionism And Its Impact
By Ann M. Lesch

The Zionist movement has maintained a striking continuity in its aims and methods over the past century. From the start, the movement sought to achieve a Jewish majority in Palestine and to establish a Jewish state on as much of the LAND as possible. The methods included promoting mass Jewish immigration and acquiring tracts of land that would become the inalienable property of the Jewish people. This policy inevitably prevented the indigenous Arab residents from attaining their national goals and establishing a Palestinian state. It also necessitated displacing Palestinians from their lands and jobs when their presence conflicted with Zionist interests.

The Zionist movement—and subsequently the state of ISRAEL—failed to develop a positive approach to the Palestinian presence and aspirations. Although many Israelis recognized the moral dilemma posed by the Palestinians, the majority either tried to ignore the issue or to resolve it by force majeure. Thus, the Palestine problem festered and grew, instead of being resolved.

Israeli military court refuses to release Ahed Tamimi
17 January 2018

An Israeli military court has refused to release Ahed Tamimi, a 16-year-old girl.

In a hearing Wednesday, Israeli occupation authorities sought that Ahed and her mother Nariman Tamimi remain in detention for another 101 days, until the end of proceedings.

Ahed’s trial will begin on 31 January, the day she turns 17.

Israel’s military courts deny basic due process rights and notoriously have a near-100 percent conviction rate for Palestinians.

Concerned by Israel’s systematic abuses, 20 members of Congress are backing legislation to ban Israel from using US aid for the military detention, abuse and torture of children like Ahed Tamimi.

Nariman’s trial will begin on 6 February, her husband Bassem Tamimi wrote on Facebook.

The Tamimis’ defense attorney, Gaby Lasky, demanded their immediate release, which the Israeli military court rejected.

Bassem Tamimi, Ahed’s father, also wrote that his wife Nariman suffers from a stress disorder and diabetes, exacerbated by the low quality and quantity of food in prison.

He added that Ahed and Nariman are constantly transported between detention centers, an arduous and painful process for prisoners.

“Ahed is transported with criminals who intimidate her with threats and insults,” Bassem stated.

He added that his wife and daughter are still in good form, despite their ordeal.

“While in jail, my daughter Ahed informed us that she studies [for] four classes from her school curriculum, and she read two books outside the curriculum. She additionally asked us all to focus on every imprisoned woman and child and to work towards a campaign to highlight their cases.”

There are currently 350 Palestinian children and 58 women in Israeli detention, according to prisoners rights group Addameer.

This tweet shows a letter written by Nariman to her family. She writes that “we remain resilient” behind bars.

Ahed was arrested in a night raid days after she and her cousin Nour attempted to remove two Israeli soldiers from the family’s property after a soldier shot another cousin, 15-year-old Muhammad Fadel Tamimi, in the head causing him serious injuries.

Ahed was seen in a video filmed by her mother, Nariman, slapping and shoving one of the heavily armed men.

The Israeli military filed 12 charges against Ahed on 1 January.

If convicted on charges that include throwing stones, incitement and assaulting and threatening a soldier, the 16-year-old could remain in Israeli prisons for years.

In a video from Ahed’s hearing on Monday, a reporter asks Ahed if she is proud of what she did, to which she replies smiling that she is.

Ahed’s mother Nariman is facing charges of “incitement” for livestreaming the incident with the soldiers.

Collective punishment

Israeli defense minister Avigdor Lieberman is enforcing collective punishment on the Tamimi family and their village of Nabi Saleh in the occupied West Bank.

Israel has declared Nabi Saleh a closed military zone to suppress demonstrations in support of the Tamimi family and other political prisoners.

Lieberman has also issued a military order to prevent Bassem Tamimi from traveling outside Palestine. And he has withdrawn about 20 Israeli work permits from Ahed’s relatives, according to the Ma’an News Agency.

“Dealing with Tamimi and her family has to be severe, exhaust all legal measures and generate deterrence,” Lieberman said, as reported by Samidoun, a group which supports Palestinian prisoners.

“There is justice in the military court,” Lieberman tweeted on Wednesday, welcoming the decision to keep Ahed locked up.

An Israeli military court also extended the detention of Ahed’s cousin Muhammad Bilal Tamimi until 25 January.

Muhammad, 19, was taken prisoner during a night raid on the village of Nabi Saleh on 11 January.

Israeli forces transferred Muhammad to solitary confinement in the Petah Tikva detention center near Tel Aviv.

Muhammad’s parents, Manal and Bilal Tamimi were unable to attend his hearing on 14 January because it was held in Israel, and they were denied entry for “security reasons,” according to Manal Tamimi’s update on Facebook.

Israel’s transfer of Palestinian detainees to prisons inside Israel is a flagrant violation of the Fourth Geneva Convention, which prohibits “individual or mass forcible transfers, as well as deportations of protected persons from occupied territory to the territory of the occupying power.”

Night raids and killings

Israel arrested another eight children in an overnight raid on Tuesday.

They were all between the ages of 11 and 17, according to the Ma’an News Agency.

Israel also arrested a Palestinian child, Muhammad Samer Mansour, 14, in an overnight raid in Ramallah on 9 January.

On Tuesday, Israel killed Palestinian student leader and former prisoner Ahmad Abd al-Jaber Muhammad Salim, 28, during confrontations in Qalqiliya in the northern occupied West Bank on Tuesday.

Salim was a student at al-Quds Open University in Qalqiliya and the secretary of the Democratic Front for the Liberation of Palestine’s student bloc.

“Salim was critically injured in the head with a live bullet during clashes in his hometown of Jayyous before he succumbed to the wounds just minutes later,” the Ma’an News Agency reported.

Citing witnesses, Ma’an said that “Israeli soldiers opened fire at Salim from less than 20 meters away, and that forces prevented Palestinian ambulances from reaching him by firing tear gas at ambulances and paramedics.”

“Release her without delay”

The European Union’s office in Ramallah issued a “local” statement on 12 January expressing “concern” about the arrest of Ahed Tamimi and the killing of another child, 16-year-old Musab Tamimi, in the village of Deir Nitham on 3 January.

But the European Union’s embassy in Tel Aviv made no acknowledgement of the statement on its social media accounts.

Israel has killed three Palestinian children since the start of the year.

Amnesty International is calling for the immediate release of Ahed Tamimi.

“Nothing that Ahed Tamimi has done can justify the continuing detention of a 16-year-old girl,” the human rights organization said on Monday. “The Israeli authorities must release her without delay.”
