Ahed Tamimi Indicted on 12 Counts by Israeli Court; Father says, ‘I’m very worried about my daughter’

“I am very worried about my daughter. Her fate is now in the hands of people who don’t even see Palestinians as full human beings.”

Those are the words of Bassem Tamimi, father of Palestinian teen Ahed Tamimi, who at a hearing today was formally indicted on 12 counts by an Israeli military court.

According to a report by Aljazeera, the charges against Ahed include assaulting an Israeli soldier, interfering with a soldier’s duties, and two past instances of stone-throwing.

Ahed’s mother, Nariman, and her cousin, Nour, have now also been formally indicted. Nariman stands accused of “incitement” for uploading the video of the slap to social media, while Nour–at a hearing held in the same court yesterday–was indicted on charges of aggravated assault of a soldier and “disturbing soldiers conducting their duties,” according to a Press TV report here. All three remain in Israeli custody.

Ahed was arrested on December 19 after slapping an Israeli soldier. She has been held in detention ever since.

The girl’s lawyer is Gaby Lasky, an Israeli human rights attorney, who can be seen briefly in a video accompanying the Press TV report linked above and who is also quoted in an RT report.

“I am sure they want to keep her as long as possible because they don’t want the voice of resistance outside prison,” Lasky said.

Bassem, according to yet another report, here, “called Monday’s indictment a ‘political trial’ saying Israel dug up old incidents as well as the one filmed in order to justify her arrest.'”

But by far the most stirring and profound words from the worried father are contained in a commentary he wrote and which was published yesterday at Haaretz. The piece is entitled, “My Daughter, These are Tears of Struggle.” Here is a brief excerpt:

My daughter is just 16 years old. In another world, in your world, her life would look completely different. In our world, Ahed is a representative of a new generation of our people, of young freedom fighters. This generation has to wage its struggle on two fronts. On the one hand, they have the duty, of course, to keep on challenging and fighting the Israeli colonialism into which they were born, until the day it collapses. On the other hand, they have to boldly face the political stagnation and degeneration that has spread among us. They have to become the living artery that will revive our revolution and bring it back from the death entailed in a growing culture of passivity that has arisen from decades of political inactivity.

Ahed is one of many young women who in the coming years will lead the resistance to Israeli rule. She is not interested in the spotlight currently being aimed at her due to her arrest, but in genuine change. She is not the product of one of the old parties or movements, and in her actions she is sending a message: In order to survive, we must candidly face our weaknesses and vanquish our fears.

A bit later in the same article, Bassem goes on to address his remarks to Ahed directly:

Ahed, no parent in the world yearns to see his daughter spending her days in a detention cell. However, Ahed, no one could be prouder than I am of you. You and your generation are courageous enough, at last, to win. Your actions and courage fill me with awe and bring tears to my eyes. But in accordance with your request, these are not tears of sadness or regret, but rather tears of struggle.

In 2015, the Israeli Knessett adopted a law prescribing a prison sentence of up to 20 years for throwing stones. The fact that Ahed has been charged with two counts of stone throwing would suggest that Israeli prosecutors are planning to seek a lengthy prison sentence for the young girl.

  1. The “most moral army” have no conscience and no empathy toward non-Jews. Expect more “rock-ettes” to be launched into Israeli territory–likely by the deceivers themselves–to crudely attempt to cover the stench of their crimes against Ahed.

  2. Reblogged this on | truthaholics and commented:

  3. I sputter in anger over this ! Can one imagine the uproar if this was the opposite ? A young Jew girl protester arrested for exerting her rights ! Media , Hollywood ,politicians hollering to high heaven. The President making a stern comment . Congressional Resolution ! I can see the Republican Jew lovers ,and assorted ” Patriots” , along with Democrat lap dogs wanting to outdo one another in support. Note how Israel codifies their persecution in ‘ The Law “. Jews love ” the book “.. all they do is sanction on paper ,and haggled over by lawyers ( Scribe & Pharisee)… ‘ 20 years for stone throwing “. If every Palastinian picked up a stone what could they do ? Christ ,Charles First ,French King ,Soviet / Jew Bolshivisom Show Trials ,IMT of 46 , today’s ” Office of special investigation ‘ who pick up men over 90 who were just kids in the 40s . One ,and on the cycle of Yahweh revenge . All must pass this story ,pray ,and contact Congress/ Senate despite the seeming futility. Let the Jews ,and there minions know we exist !

  4. This is beyond bizarre, but then so is the entire Zionist ideology beyond bizarre, in its psychotic fury and state terrorism. Where is the UN Special Rapporteur for Children (or whatever the appropriate title) as Zionism abducts, indicts and prosecutes/persecutes this child?…but look at Ahed’s face: she doesn’t have the face of a child enjoying childhood…the bastard Zionists have stolen her childhood. Where is Ivanka Trump Kushner, she who renounced Jesus Christ in order to marry a billionaire Zionist Jew?–she fell all over herself for a child(ren) of Syria not that long ago…where in hell is she now?

  5. ‘By the Brezhnev era, after tens of millions had been exterminated in the gulag, many Russians lamented that “submissiveness had softened our brains to such a degree” that resistance was no longer possible. ‘

    “You can resolve to live your life with integrity. Let your credo be this: Let the lie come into the world, let it even triumph. But not through me.”
    ― Aleksandr Solzhenitsyn

    “In keeping silent about evil, in burying it so deep within us that no sign of it appears on the surface, we are implanting it, and it will rise up a thousand fold in the future. When we neither punish nor reproach evildoers, we are not simply protecting their trivial old age, we are thereby ripping the foundations of justice from beneath new generations.”
    ― Aleksandr Solzhenitsyn, The Gulag Archipelago 1918-1956

    “Bless you prison, bless you for being in my life. For there, lying upon the rotting prison straw, I came to realize that the object of life is not prosperity as we are made to believe, but the maturity of the human soul.”
    ― Aleksandr Solzhenitsyn, The Gulag Archipelago 1918-1956

    “Do not pursue what is illusory – property and position: all that is gained at the expense of your nerves decade after decade and can be confiscated in one fell night. Live with a steady superiority over life – don’t be afraid of misfortune, and do not yearn after happiness; it is after all, all the same: the bitter doesn’t last forever, and the sweet never fills the cup to overflowing. ”
    ― Aleksandr Solzhenitsyn

    Bless you Ahed, for showing the rest of us what courage and freedom is all about.

    We need to remember some past greats who encouraged bravery, like Winston Churchill, who said, “Courage is rightly esteemed the first of human qualities… because it is the quality which guarantees all others”.

      • Amen Gwen ! Churchill was the last centuries number one actor,and puppet of International Jewry. His mother Jenny Jerome (Jacobson ) was an American Jew,and his powerfull father Randolf controlled by them as well. Winston Churchill entire career ,and image to this day guided by the Jews. He was an avid Zionist ,” As a vigerous Protostant , I believe tht Palestine must be returned to the Jews”, and Rothschilds paid his bills,debts,mortgages,and filled his bank accounts with tens of millions through their diabolocal agent Bernard Baruch. He demanded two world wars ,and said”I enjoyed every minute of it”. His driver reported his interest in the Jewish Kabbalah ,”As his guide”. This voluptuary,sociopath,philosemite was not known for any ‘courage ‘. He fictionaized his own life,and was well behind the front as a disgraced Cabinet Member in WW1,and “Staff Officer ” when kicked out of the government. Churchill was a war mongering, enjoying, Jew idolizing, war criminal. His pact with them ‘gave him the kingdoms of the world”. See,CHURCHILL & THE JEWS ;A lifelong friendship ,by Martin Gilbert (his official very Jewish biogragher ) , and CHURCHILLS WAR David Irving -David Irving Action Report.Com

      • What a silly comment.
        Please go and pull down some statues somewhere.
        The man was one of the world’s greatest historians, his rhetoric will resound for ever.
        “Still, if you will not fight for the right when you can easily win without bloodshed; if you will not fight when your victory will be sure and not too costly; you may come to the moment when you will have to fight with all the odds against you and only a precarious chance of survival. There may be a worse case. You may have to fight when there is no hope of victory, because it is better to perish than to live as slaves.”
        On a par with Jefferson, Hamilton and Franklin.
        You must be a hard working American.

  6. Those mega-oppressors will receive eternalJustice for all their atrocities committed here on earth. “God is gonna cut them down. Sooner or later..”
    Hopefully sooner.

  7. ‘”..Truly I tell you, whatever you did for one of the least of these brothers and sisters of mine, you did for me…” Mt 25 40-41
    I do not believe in justice here, on earth. But I do , very strongly, believe in Eternal Justice. God is patient. He can wait. But as soon as the last breath is gone out of our chest, we will stand in front of Him , and all Mercy will be gone, only JUSTICE , crude, strict , raw God’s Justice.
    I wish those oppressor became fully aware of it.
    They will reap, with tears and teeth gnashing , what they now happily sow.
    “…Truly I tell you, WHATEVER YOU DID for one of the least of these brothers and sisters
    of mine, you did FOR ME ….”

  8. HELWA TAMIMI,

    RESISTING INJUSTICE IS A CRIMINAL ACT IN THE WAR CRIMINAL ISRAELI JUSTICE SYSTEM.

    I WILL GLADLY SHARE YOUR SUFFERING.

  9. DEAR AHED HAMIMI,

    RESISTING GROSS INJUSTICE IS AN ILLEGAL, CRIMINAL ACT, ACCORDING TO THE WAR CRIMINAL ISRAELI JUSTICE SYSTEM.
    PLASTIC BULITS, SPRAYING DRAINAGE, BEATINGS WITH STONES, DESTRUCTIVE BULLDOZERS, ILLEGAL OCCUPATION, SHOOTING AT FISHING BOATS AND MORE ARE PART AND PARCEL OF “ISRAELI DEMOCRACY”.
    THE WORLD SILENCE IS DEAFENING.
    I WILL GLADELY SHARE YOUR FAMILY RESISTIVE SUFFERING.

    I assume that putting ” around words indicates that you are quoting the subject (Churchill). Please provide a source.

    In fact Churchill had no special preference or interest in the Jews or Zionism. As with all politicians he did not denounce their influence and did not fight or denounce the Balfour declaration. However.

    “Gilbert [His biographer and the person most knowledgeable about his life and writing] created the myth about Churchill’s special relationship to the Jews
    But since the opening of the British archives about World War II, in 1970, and of Churchill’s personal archives in 1995, several studies have been published that shattered the myth. In his 2004 book “In Command of History: Churchill Fighting and Writing the Second World War,” Prof. David Reynolds exposed Churchill’s rewriting of history in his memoirs.

    After the war, the Zionists and most of the Jewish people believed that the Holocaust justified their demand to establish a Jewish state in Palestine. Churchill disagreed. In his view, the Jewish refugees should return to their homes in Europe. On August 1, 1946, less than a month after a pogrom against Jews who tried to return to their homes in Kielce, Poland, Churchill argued in the House of Commons that the idea that the Jewish problem could be solved by transferring the Jews of Europe en masse to Palestine was too “silly” to occupy their time.”

    Rt. Hon. Winston S. Churchill.

    “SOME people like Jews and some do not; but no thoughtful man can doubt the fact that they are beyond all question the most formidable and the most remarkable race which has ever appeared in the world.
    Good and Bad Jews

    The conflict between good and evil which proceeds unceasingly in the breast of man nowhere reaches such an intensity as in the Jewish race. The dual nature of mankind is nowhere more strongly or more terribly exemplified. We owe to the Jews in the Christian revelation a system of ethics which, even if it were entirely separated from the supernatural, would be incomparably the most precious possession of mankind, worth in fact the fruits of all other wisdom and learning put together. On that system and by that faith there has been built out of the wreck of the Roman Empire the whole of our existing civilization.

    And it may well be that this same astounding race may at the present time be in the actual process of producing another system of morals and philosophy, as malevolent as Christianity was benevolent, which, if not arrested, would shatter irretrievably all that Christianity has rendered possible. It would almost seem as if the gospel of Christ and the gospel of Antichrist were destined to originate among the same people; and that this mystic and mysterious race had been chosen for the supreme manifestations, both of the divine and the diabolical.

    There are all sorts of men — good, bad and, for the most part, indifferent — in every country, and in every race. Nothing is more wrong than to deny to an individual, on account of race or origin, his right to be judged on his personal merits and conduct. In a people of peculiar genius like the Jews, contrasts are more vivid, the extremes are more widely separated, the resulting consequences are more decisive.
    First there are the Jews who, dwelling in every country throughout the world, identify themselves with that country, enter into its national life and, while adhering faithfully to their own religion, regard themselves as citizens in the fullest sense of the State which has received them. Such a Jew living in England would say, “I am an English man practising the Jewish faith.”
    In violent opposition to all this sphere of Jewish effort rise the schemes of the International Jews. The adherents of this sinister confederacy are mostly men reared up among the unhappy populations of countries where Jews are persecuted on account of their race. Most, if not all, of them have forsaken the faith of their forefathers, and divorced from their minds all spiritual hopes of the next world. This movement among the Jews is not new. From the days of Spartacus-Weishaupt to those of Karl Marx, and down to Trotsky (Russia), Bela Kun (Hungary), Rosa Luxembourg (Germany), and Emma Goldman (United States), this world-wide conspiracy for the overthrow of civilization and for the reconstitution of society on the basis of arrested development, of envious malevolence, and impossible equality, has been steadily growing. It played, as a modern writer, Mrs. Webster, has so ably shown, a definitely recognizable part in the tragedy of the French Revolution. It has been the mainspring of every subversive movement during the Nineteenth Century; and now at last this band of extraordinary personalities from the underworld of the great cities of Europe and America have gripped the Russian people by the hair of their heads and have become practically the undisputed masters of that enormous empire.
    Terrorist Jews

    There is no need to exaggerate the part played in the creation of Bolshevism and in the actual bringing about of the Russian Revolution, by these international and for the most part atheistical Jews, it is certainly a very great one; it probably outweighs all others. With the notable exception of Lenin, the majority of the leading figures are Jews. Moreover, the principal inspiration and driving power comes from the Jewish leaders. ”

    In case you missed it, he was referring to Zionism and the global control of politics by Jews “…. at the present time be in the actual process of producing another system of morals and philosophy, as malevolent as Christianity was benevolent, ….” going back to the French Revolution

    It would be useful if you actually referenced and knew what you were writing on.
    Churchill recognised long before any other the pernicious influence of an element of the jewish people.
    However he was intelligent enough to differentiate by individual and not just make sweeping and erroneous generalisations.

  11. Mr. London I have been in this fight against International Jewry since age 18. Politics, Broadcasting, and academia. I had a popular podcast. Churchill personally ordered the incineration of my family as well. Anyone who cannot believe the destroyer of the British empire for the malevolent seeking of glory,and Europe itself ,was ruled by the Rothschilds/ International Jewry,and was an enthusiast for Zionism, is beyond my humble ability to change. To quote that monster in context of Ahed,whom he would have zero reguard for is beyond my scope as well. He orderd the gassing of Iraqis in the 1920s. Here are the finest BRITISH SOURCES on Churchills total Zionist Jewish Control :CHURCHILL THE END OF GLORY by Charmley, CHURCHILLS WAR ,by master historian ,DAVID IRVING ( Direct records of his bribary by them for war,and glory.,and you so pedantic never heard of him ? The Jews hate him for his truth) , THE CONTROVERSY OF ZION,by Douglas Reed, BARUCH, by (American) Margeuret Qoit. THE UNNECESSARY WAR,by Pat Buchanan (American ) Baruch (you never heard of him -wow sad ) , was the Jewish Agent of Rothschilds ,who filled the murderous drunkards accounts,and “handled ” him. Baruch help set up the Balfour Declaration, and ran the US economy during WW1,and was influential in Churchills career in total /return .. “They are made for each other “. Churchills buddy Bracken would say. Churchill was Jewish by linage through his mother. Jenny Jerome /Jacobson. He would qualify to be a citizen of Israel ! His pact with the devil for war,and Jewry gave him the “Kingdoms of this earth”. The Jews keep his myth going in film )showing the bedraggled old toothless drunk in glowing light , to justify more wars. Whenever someone calls for peace ,or negoitions a Jew will cry “Appeaser “, and quote “the worlds greatest man”, (for them) to shut down all debate. No matter how long and turgid your responses might be ,the facts of the world of the 20th Century …”The Jewish Century “, are clear. His legacy of destruction for his “Lifelong Friends ” continue today in Palestine,and the world over. Good day. Ahed ,young women of humble background ;no Empire ,International Jewry /Money, or bracing with booze,need no lessons from a Zionist Stooge on courage .
