WATCH: Palestinian’s Unintentionally Hilarious Video of Shirley Temper


PAL+ English has put out a video attempting to lionize Ahed Tamimi aka Shirley Temper.

And it’s really bad. As in contains corny attempts at poetry and lousy English.

Ahed Tamimi

Ahed Tamimi, a beautiful unarmed Palestinian teen, was kidnapped by the Israeli soldiers during a pre-dawn raid on her home.#ahedtamimi

  • “She is coerced to hide her softness” – “coerced” is clearly not what they meant, but it is unintentionally true; while the video makers clearly want to blame the IDF, it is her parents who coerced her from a young age to try provoke the soldiers
  • “Outrageous face” – again, I am sure not what they meant
  • “Was crushed by the oppression of 10f – I am guessing they meant “IOF” (what they call the Israeli Occupation Forces)
  • “With bare hands, she kicked the soldiers” – those are some amazing hands she has there

The popping sound at the end seems like an appropriately weird way to end the video, although I think Porky Pig appearing to say “That’s all folks!” may have been even more in line with the overall vibe.
