Posted on 02/04/2018 8:09:39 AM PST by jerod
To Palestinians and their supporters, hers is the face of a hero, a new symbol of resistance. But many Israelis call 17-year-old Ahed Tamimi "Shirley Temper" after viewing videos showing the girl angrily lashing out at Israeli soldiers.
The long-running Israeli-Palestinian conflict has always been about competing narratives, and in this age of social media and viral videos, Ahed's defiance has made her into something of a star in the Arab world and beyond.
The blond-haired, blue-eyed Palestinian girl spent her 17th birthday inside an Israeli military prison last week, where she, along with her mother, await trial on Feb. 13, charged with a dozen offences, including incitement and assault against a soldier.
In a Dec. 15, 2017, video, Ahed, dressed in a blue jacket with a kaffiyeh tied around her neck, confronted two armed Israeli soldiers, outside her home in Nabi Saleh, a village in the Israeli-occupied West Bank.

Apparently, her 'blond hair' and 'blue eyes' makes her a more desirable hero, especially to 'western reporters'.
She’s a brainwashed (since birth) lunatic that is going to wind up in a ditch someday. Shame on her ghoul parents.
Shame she chose jihad.
She could have had a modeling career.
Resistance is so much nicer than terrorist. The Left controls the language and the framing. It has gotten so that I have to translate every headline.
I asked another Freeper how to tell if a “trans” was biologically a male or female. He replied, “Just substitute “face” for “trans.” Works every time.
IIRC it was Golda Meir who once said "the Arabs will have peace when they come to love their children more than they hate the Jews".
How is it that you seem to be able to find the best pics that so perfectly match the written phrase? My first LOL of the day. Thanks : )
A classic Drill Sergeant Joe B. Frick “Vertical Butt Stroke with the Rifle, M-14” after her first slap would have solved a lot of problems.
So, when will she senselessy blowing herself up?
“...new symbol of resistance...”
translation: f&^%ing terrorist.
Kill ‘em all.
She is a Rachel Corrie wannabe.
The smiling woman behind her to the right seems to be enjoying the act.
I watched the video. The Israeli soldiers should have pepper-sprayed her and her companions.
These people danced in the streets when the towers fell, never forget it. Never.
I have more respect for cockroaches.

Right you are.
The day after 9/11, Bush should have said: There is something fundamentally wrong with Islam. And we are going to address that problem with extreme prejudice.
The entire West would have been behind us in that crusade (yes, I said crusade). Islam would have been forced to reform, much like Imperial Japan was forced to reform.
Instead Bush told us that “Islam is peace”. And so here we are.
There is a place for pepper spray.
I agree. I prefer the ocular and nasal cavities.
