PA Child Terror Leader Sentenced, Released

JewishPress Logo

An Israeli military court Tuesday sentenced  Bassem al-Tamimi, a 45 year old Palestinian man who encourages Palestinian youth to attack Israeli soldiers with projectiles, was sentenced to 13 months in jail.

Al-Tamimi, who garnered the support of the European Union, which criticized Israel for imprisoning him, was released after the trial, having served all 13 months while awaiting trial.

Al-Tamimi’s tactics have been called child abuse by some, who accuse him of manipulating children to endanger themselves and others in a street war against Israel.  Amnesty International called al-Tamimi a “prisoner of conscience,’’ and celebrated him as a protest leader.

  1. Keith David Reitman says:

    So, does he get a credit toward his, likely, next criminal abuse of children through incitement sentence?

  2. According to the European Union and Amnesty International – what abuse? What's wrong with organizing children to hurt Israelis. Especially if the children can become "martyrs" if they are in any way injured while hurling rocks, bottles, etc. at the soldiers or Jewish citizens….) Hmmm – is my cynicism showing?
