The poster child for Palestinian child abuse is photographed by the latest lethal journalist for the New York Times. You can read more about the former Electronic Intifada writer, Diaa Hadid, here. h/t Yisrael Medad for finding this Instagram gem.
In other news her abusive father, Bassem Tamimi, the one who’s been sending his kids out to “confront” fully armed soldier since they were just out of diapers, is on an “education” tour of the US and someone thought it would be good to allow him to sow hate in the minds of third graders:
Anti-Israel activists gloat over appearance of Bassem Tamimi before third graders.
An uproar is brewing in Ithaca, New York, after anti-Israel activists bragged on Facebook how they managed to bring Palestinian activist Bassem Tamimi to a third-grade class as part of a presentation on the suffering of Palestinian children at the hands of Israel.
According to the activists, the event took place on Friday morning, September 18, 2015 at the Beverly J. Martin Elementary School.
Tamimi is best known for his use of children, including his own, for media purposes. The game goes like this: Tamimi’s children and other children from the village of Nabi Saleh are encouraged to confront Israeli soldiers in the hope of provoking a reaction. The children are surrounded by a phalanx of photographers and videographers waiting for the viral moment when the Israeli soldier reacts, which then is fed to the media through the Tamimi media operation and international activists who often participate.
diaa.hadid I asked Ahed Tamimi to pose for a photograph, quite taken by the 14 year old’s Frida Kahlo riff. She’s one of the children who routinely demonstrate in the #Palestinian village of #NabiSaleh against the takeover of a nearby spring by #Jewish settlers, and more generally, against the #Israeli occupation of the #westbank. Ahed in particular is quite well known, for being photographed this month biting the hand of a soldier who had chased and pinned down her little brother Mohammad, 12, his arm in a cast, after he had been throwing rocks. The weekly protests have an aspect of theater that make them widely criticised by some Israelis – and some Palestinians. #latergram
- peterfeld Obviously any protest is “theatrical,” that’s the entire point. MLK’s March on Washington was “theatrical,” so was the Selma march. Do many Israelis criticize IDF shooting tear gas and rubber bullets at the nonviolent protesters?

- diaa.hadid Hey @peterfeld a minority of Israelis do indeed criticise the army; B’Tselem for instance is a chief source of information on this very matter.
