In 2012, Tamimi was arrested and sentenced to prison for planning demonstrations in Nabi Salih, as well as “soliciting” others to throw stones at IDF soldiers as they attempted to disperse the weekly rallies. Later that year, he was again arrested, this time for an illegal demonstration in the car park of Rami Levy, a supermarket accessible to both Jews and palestinians. I am guessing he failed to disclose at least one of those.
Tamimi has just been in the news, leading a group in some anti-Israel lawfare: filing a lawsuit in a US federal court against Sheldon Adelson, Elliot Abrams, John Hagee and a range of banks, companies and NGOs “linked to the settlement enterprise and to alleged war crimes in the three Gaza wars.”
According to this other post of his, the visa expires only in 2017.
Meanwhile, Legal Insurrection‘s William Jacobson has filed a Freedom of Information Law request, wanting all documentation regarding Tamimi’s visit to Beverly J. Martin Elementary School in Ithaca late last year – where he spoke to a classroom of Third Grade students!
Here’s hoping this all provides setbacks for this evil man and his supporters.
Update: Here is video taken from late last year at UC Berkeley, where pro-Israel activist Clay confronted the detestable Tamimi.
