Ahd Tamimi arrested for slapping an Israeli soldier raiding her house

20 December 2017

The occupation forces said the Female Border Police and Israeli army soldiers removed 16-year-old Ahed Tamimi from her home in Nabi Saleh, near Ramallah, and she was brought in for questioning.

The Tamimi family made headlines in 2012, when "Shirley Temper" was filmed shaking her fist and stamping her feet at an Israeli soldier following the arrest of her brother, the Daily Sabah reported.

Al-Tamimi's father said the girl was reacting to the shooting of her cousin, Mohammed al-Tamimi, on 15 December, by Israeli soldiers during a protest against Donald Trump's recognition of Jerusalem as Israel's capital.

"They didn't give a reason for her arrest", he told AFP.

In another incident involving members of a notorious family from Nabeh Saleh, IDF soldiers maintained their composure in the face of what appeared to be a staged confrontation.

The Israeli public is accustomed to submissive Palestinians - and if not, it is accustomed to seeing them beaten and arrested, regardless of whether they present an actual danger or are engaged in an act of protest. It was shared by Quds News Network the same day with the caption: "These fearless Palestinians girls from the Tamimi family managed to kick two heavily armed Israeli soldiers who wanted to break into their house".

The arrest took place during a raid on the Tamimi home on Monday night.

In a short documentary, Ahed said that her dream is to become a football player, describing the difficulty she faces at the Israeli checkpoint when she wants to get to school. "Their goal would be to circulate this footage spreading lies about the IDF, but these soldiers knew what they were trying to achieve and did not budge", they wrote. "We have no choice but to resist". As the daughter of parents who are leading activists in the popular struggle against the occupation in the village of Nabi Saleh, she has been part of the struggle her entire life. And they continue to pay the price for their refusal to accept the status quo, for their steadfast challenge to mechanisms of the occupation.
