Slapping an Israeli Soldier More Newsworthy Than Shooting a Palestinian Child in the Face

Israeli soldiers shot 14-year-old Palestinian Mohammad Tamimi point-blank in the face with a rubber-jacketed bullet on December 14, 2017, in Nabi Saleh, a small village in the occupied West Bank. The boy had to undergo six hours of surgery and was placed in a medically induced coma.

An hour later, Mohammad’s cousin, Ahed Tamimi, slapped and kicked at an armed Israeli soldier. Early the next week, after video of Ahed’s actions went viral, Israeli soldiers raided the Tamimi home at 3 a.m., arresting Ahed and confiscating the family’s phones, computers and laptops.

Ahed has been denied bail and could face years in prison. (Nour Tamimi, a 16-year-old cousin of Ahed’s who is also in the video, was also arrested and has been released on bail. Ahed’s mother Nariman was arrested later that day when she inquired about her daughter, and she remains in custody.)

A January 1 Newsweek article described the incident as Ahed “assaulting Israeli soldiers,” “threatening two Israeli soldiers and then hitting them in the face,” “pushing the soldiers as well as kicking them, hitting them in the face and throwing stones at them.” The piece referred to Ahed’s actions as “assaults” and an “attack.” It failed to report that Israeli soldiers had just shot and severely injured her 14-year-old cousin

Webmaster's Commentary: 

There is a thoroughly media-manipulated war against Palestinians, in which the IDF is depicted as NEVER committing acts of wanton cruelty against Palestinian kids.

The suffering and murders of Palestinian kids (which is a daily occurance in East Jerusalem, and the West Bank) is consistently bleached away from any coverage, and it is always the Palestinians who are the villians.

So the lies keep getting regurgitated, to the point where there is absolutely zero IDF incitement, either verbal, or physical, to have caused these incedents in the first place.
