Left-wing politicians and pundits tried to argue that the officers deserved to be commended for showing restraint, but that was hardly an argument to inspire confidence.National pride was saved as news arrived that one of the girls, 16-year-old Ahed Tamimi had been arrested in her home in the early hours, four days after the event was filmed.
Their propensity for provoking IDF troops on camera means that Israel cant have it both ways - to maintain a 50-year military occupation over Palestinian civilians and also expect that the soldiers doing so will look good on television.
The dirty secret that has been revealed here is that the Israeli politicians who are perpetuating the occupation are not really worried about international pressure on Israel or about Palestinian resentment and violence.
It didnt matter at that moment that to the Palestinians these images would broadcast a very different image and could quite likely inflame the already existing tensions.
It didnt even matter that when broadcast on international networks, all a foreign audience would see was a defiant young woman being suppressed by cruel occupiers.
The Tamimi family, he tweeted in English, which may not be a real family —dresses up kids in American clothes and pays them to provoke IDF troops on camera. The Tamimis are veteran protesters and have demonstrated over the years a talent for producing compelling scenes for camera crews visiting Nabi Saleh.
This cynical and cruel use of children constitutes abuse. But his tweet also gives away the true sin of the family members.
Ahed Tamimi 2012 yılında İstanbul'a gelmiş ve ' Hanzala Cesaret Ödülü'nü almıştı.
Ahed, 2012 yılında başbakan olan Recep Tayyip Erdoğan ile de görüşmüştü.
The Givati battalion commander knew he was in for a shitstorm.
