Ahed Tamimi, Palestinian Authority soldier-slapping video star

Another anti-IDF video has surfaced featuring soldier-slapping Palestinian Authority teen video star Ahed Tamimi, this one showing her initiating more violence against Israeli soldiers in Samaria.


The video was reportedly filmed about six months ago. Tamimi harasses an Israeli soldier as he is lying on the ground, trying to line up a sight. Instead, Tamimi prances over with a group of friends and begins to harass the soldier, almost about to, but then thinking twice about kicking his gun away. Other Israeli soldiers try to protect him and block the attackers.

But suddenly teenage Tamimi transforms into a veritable little spitfire, shrieking and screaming, pushing and punching the chests of the soldiers as if all the devils of the seven gates of hell have arrived and are pursuing her.

And she’s certainly costumed very carefully for the viewer – and for the camera angle trained intently on her every move, too – from the snug little white tee and fatigue-colored form-fitting trousers, right up to her long, wildly coiffed hair as it “escapes” the Fatah jihadi keffiyeh tied as a scarf on the crown of her head. Mind you, her female companions are not nearly as free. Their scarves cover all of their hair and are tied under their chins as a proper hijab should be; they’re also properly covered in long, somber-colored coats as well.

But Tamimi is in the starring role, and stars always shine. Right?

How unfortunate that her dramatic behavior was also patently illegal, and documented so perfectly by videographer Hisham Al-Shaqrah who thoughtfully placed his identification in the lower right-hand corner of the screen.

Tamimi, a resident of Nebi Saleh, is currently behind bars. She agreed last month to a plea bargain deal in which she will plead guilty to four of the 12 counts of assault with which she was to be charged – including the videotaped slapping of IDF soldiers – in return for a sentence of eight months in military prison.
