Child Abuse Palestinian Style

The Palestinians select and dress their children to look like regular blond European and American girls. They then have them taunt IDF soldiers, aiming to provoke a reaction which will then be filmed and broadcast across the globe - with Ha'aretz and The Guardian in the lead of course.

Look carefully how one girl antagonises a soldier, and see how photographers wait for the 'perfect shot' to relay around the globe as yet another piece of anti-Israel news reporting.

This will then be portrayed as a spontaneous brutal attack by an armed and uniformed Israeli soldier against an innocent Palestinian girl.

This is film that you will never see on your mainstream TV news -- but it happens on a regular basis.

The blonde girl is a fixture at Nabi Saleh protests, which are frequently violent. She is often at the front, "in the soldiers' face"

I believe it is she who appears briefly in a trailer for the documentary 'We are Nabi Saleh' (still looking for co-funding)

She is the daughter of Palestinian “activist” Bassem Tamimi, and appears in some other Nabi Saleh protest videos, marked "Tamimi Press"

The blogger Elder of Zion' has named the blonde girl "Shirley Temper" and has made this musical compilation of her 'greatest hits':

Postscript:

Guess what -- the BBC is using a photo of this exploited child (A’hd Tamimi, the daughter of Bassem Tamimi and his wife, Nariman who films for B’Tselem’s video project) to show the supposed "brutality" of the IDF:

"The Palestinians select and dress their children to look like regular blond European and American girls" Palestinian's select their children? And how by your reckoning should a Palestinian child look ?Burka from head to toe?Racist! The regular demonstration at an-Nabi Salih in the occupied West Bank is always covered by cameras,why would the cameras not want to document a little girl getting tore into soldiers of the occupying forces? You probably do Israel more harm than good Mr Hoffman,your head is in the clouds Mr Hoffman hinting that a highly trained IDF soldier might hit a little girl for provoking him ,even worse hinting that the people with the cameras expect violence toward children from soldiers.

explains the story behind the latest video making the rounds online. We’ve seen this before. The junior jihadis should be home doing their homework . . .

A senior IDF source told Ynet that intelligence indicates that pro-Palestinian activists pay Palestinian children from Nabi Salih and the nearby villages to confront the soldiers.

The weekly protests in the areas used to involve hundreds of people, but over time the numbers have dwindled to just a few dozens. According to the officers, the majority of protesters are foreign pro-Palestinian activists.

My vision is simple. End the occupation. Stop expanding the settlements immediately. Give the Palestinians the West Bank and Gaza. East Jerusalem becomes the capital of Palestine. The settlements can be negotiated with the proviso that there are either land swaps or the settlers become Palestinian citizens. Palestine will be contiguous, free of the Israeli military and at will to trade and interact with the rest of the world.
The Palestinians recognise Israel and vice versa.
Israel has enough weapons and military resources to defend itself should - and it is exceptionally unlikely - the Palestinians want to cause any trouble for Israel.
I am absolutely certain that a free Palestine will flourish and will benefit Israel in terms of its international image and in terms of its democracy and stability. The alternative is the continued slide into apartheid and pariah status.
It is the right thing to do for Israel and it is the fair thing to do for the Palestinians.

How lovely Viv - just a few questions to be getting on with:
The "Right of Return" which the Palestinians say is a red line - how would you deal with that?
Where will you split Jerusalem? Take a good look at a map of Jerusalem and tell me where you would split it, especially so that jews have free and unestricted access to their religious sites?
As to Jews remaining in your Utopian Palestinian State the Palestinians have repeatedly said no Jews can remain there so what would you do with them - ethnically cleanse the "West Bank" of Jews?
Recognition - the Palestinians have repeatedly said that they will not recognise Israel as the State of the Jewish people - how will you deal with that?
Gaza - Hamas will not give up the "right to free the whole of Palestine" how will you deal with that and prevent further terrorists attacks on Israeli soil?

Re-allocating Jerusalem is easy. All those areas added on after 1967 should be left out of the city's municipal control. The Jewish areas under Israeli control, the non-Jewish areas under Palestinian control.
But all this is moot, since successive Israeli governments have made a one-state solution a horrible inevitability. Best case scenario is two Cantons, one Hebrew speaking, the other Arabic, with Jerusalem as capital and seat of a binational government and parliament elected by all residents. Switzerland - but with deep-seated animosity and hatred.

The Palestinians are ready for peace and the Arab states have offered peace to Israel. Hamas has survived the siege and the massacres and will continue to win international recognition. The situation in Gaza gets worse every day and international civil protest will continue to become mainstream.
The Palestinians do not have the military capacity to harm Israel - and this would continue to be the case following their independence. This would be guaranteed by the US and the international community. Of course a Palestinian state would be easy to invade should the 'need' arise.
The negotiations would ensure Jews are permitted to live in Palestine and vice versa. No state can exist with Apartheid as a policy (as Israel is beginning to discover)
My final point is this: why not try it? Why not give the Palestinians their freedom, their dignity and their security. Try it. It has never been tried so it may work.

David Grossman (who is more eloquent than me)wrote in an open letter to Netanyahu in Haaretz that he is being disloyal to his office and his country by dismissing Abbas’ peace signals. “I will remind you, Mr. Netanyahu, that you were elected to lead Israel precisely in order to discern these rare hints of opportunity, in order to transform them into a possible lever to extricate your country from the impasse in which it has been stuck for decades.” Grossman continued, “In Israel’s present situation, you, Mr. Prime Minister, are obliged to respond to that signal. Because if you do not respond, if you do not intend to respond seriously to this fraction of a chance, I find it a bit difficult to understand why it is you want to be elected prime minister.”

Viv thanks for answering the questions I posed (sarcasm).
As usual you evade the issues which need to be agreed if there is any chance of a just and lasting peace.
Viv I told you Olmert offered them what you set out above in 2008 (Barak had offered the same to Arafat in 2000 - Bill Clinton has confirmed that) and they refused to even discuss it so how can you possibly justify your assertion that they are ready for peace?
Hamas is a terrorist organisation equipped and trained by the Ayatollahs in Iran - get real. There is no seige by Israel of Gaza if there was how did the Emir of Qatar mange to visit without passing a single Israeli soldier?
As to "The Palestinians do not have the military capacity to harm Israel" I think the citizens of Sderot and the south of Israel would disagree.
The evidence is that there is no humanitarian crisis in Gaza despite the wild claims to the contrary. The Gazans problem is that they are controlled by a fascist anti-Semitic terrorist organisation which is dedicated to the destruction of the State of Israel.
So with whom do you propose we try your proposal?

The alternative is worse for Israel.
Who offered what to whom and when is disputed so often that it is irrelevant.
The time is now and time is running out. Soon there may be one state and then it will be an apartheid state. This will ensure the full wrath of international protest.

As for your analysis of Hamas, Israel is already negotiating with Hamas - how else was the prisoner swap reached? So it's all posturing - on both sides. And let's not forget that the rockets fired from Gaza are negligible when compared to the ordnance fired INTO Gaza from Israel.

No one in Israel other than those living in cloud cuckoo land have any confidence that the Palestinians truly want to conduct a peace treaty that would result in two countries for two nations. For a start they refuse to even accept that there is a Jewish Nation or that we have an historical connection to the Land of Israel.

Unfortunately both for Israel and the Palestinians these are matters which have to be agreed in order to ensure that the result is both fair and just. Reeling off sound bites like "time is running out" helps no one. For the umpteenth Israel has offered the Palestinians what you yourself suggested they have never responded why aren't you urging them to respond instead of putting the onus continually on Israel?
I suggest you spend a month in Sderot and then tell me "rockets fired from Gaza are negligible". Easy to say sitting where you are. There would be no ordnance fired into Gaza if there were no rockets as the record proves.

The Onus is on Israel because Israel is the occupier. Israel is the one that is taking Palestinian land and preventing the Palestinians from joining the world community - quite apart from all the other injustices that the occupation enshrines.

The Palestinians don't have the power or the resources to force the process. They are the occupied, the imprisoned.

Joshua789 as I said it matters not a jot where I come from - Judea and Samaria are part of what was the Mandate for Palestine which gives me every right as a Jew to settle here. I am not even talking about our historical rights to this land which the Balfour Declaration recognised. We have returned home get over it. BTW where do I say that Arabs living in Judea and Samaria have no right to live there?

Viv apart from offering the Palestinians what you said which Israel has done on two occasions what else do you want Israel to do - sign on behalf of the Palestinians? be serious you know perfectly well that any Palestinan leader who signs a peace agreement with Israel is a dead man walking. At least Sadat was courageous enough both to realise that and still go through with a peace treaty with Israel for which he paid the ultimate price. Your assertion that the Palestinians do not have the resources to force the process is totally without foundation they have the backing of the 22 Arab States and what euphemistically used to be known as the non-aligned nations who basically control the UN.

Millis we both know that Yitzchak Rabin was never going to sign an agreement with the Palestinians that would have given them a state would he?

His last policy statement to the Knesset:
Prime Minister Yitzhak Rabin: Ratification of the Israel-Palestinian

Interim Agreement
The Knesset
October 5, 1995
www.mfa.gov.il/MFA/MFAArchive/1990_1999/1995/10/PM%20Rabin%20in%20Knesse...

* No Palestinian State: "We view the permanent solution in the framework of
State of Israel which will include most of the area of the Land of Israel as
it was under the rule of the British Mandate, and alongside it a Palestinian
entity which will be a home to most of the Palestinian residents living in
the Gaza Strip and the West Bank.

We would like this to be an entity which is less than a state, and which
will independently run the lives of the Palestinians under its authority."

* No return to '67 borders: "The borders of the State of Israel, during the
permanent solution, will be beyond the lines which existed before the Six
Day War. We will not return to the 4 June 1967 lines."

* Control of Jordan Valley: "The security border of the State of Israel will
be located in the Jordan Valley, in the broadest meaning of that term."

* Gush Katif as model: "The establishment of blocs of settlements in Judea
and Samaria, like the one in Gush Katif."

* All settlements remain intact during interim period: "I want to remind
you:
we committed ourselves, that is, we came to an agreement, and committed
ourselves before the Knesset, not to uproot a single settlement in the
framework of the interim agreement, and not to hinder building for natural
growth."

* (During interim period) "The responsibility for external security along
the borders with Egypt and Jordan, as well as control over the airspace
above all of the territories and Gaza Strip maritime zone, remains in our
hands."

Mr. Chairman, Members of Knesset,

First of all, the Government of Israel would like to wish all the citizens
of the State of Israel, and the members of the Jewish people in the
Diaspora, a happy New Year and an inscription for good in the coming year.
We wish the entire House of Israel a year of peace and security.

Members of Knesset,

Today, the Government presents to the Knesset the "Israeli- Palestinian
Interim Agreement on the West Bank and the Gaza Strip." The Government will
seek the Knesset's approval and will view the Knesset's decision as a vote
of confidence in the Government.

The Jewish people, which has known suffering and pain, has also known how to
preserve its faith, its heritage and its tradition during thousands of years
of exile, and has realized the dream of generations. We have, with our own
eyes, been privileged to see the return to Zion, the return of the children
to their borders.

Here, in the land of Israel, we returned and built a nation. Here, in the
land of Israel, we established a state. The land of the prophets, which
bequeathed to the world the values of morality, law and justice, was, after
two thousand years, restored to its lawful owners -- the members of the
Jewish people. On its land, we have built an exceptional national home and
state.

However, we did not return to an empty land. There were Palestinians here
who struggled against us for a hundred wild and bloody years. Many
thousands, on both sides, were killed in the battle over the same land, over
the same strip of territory, and were joined by the armies of the Arab
states. Today, after innumerable wars and bloody incidents, we rule more
than two million Palestinians through the IDF, and run their lives by a
Civil Administration. This is not a peaceful solution.

We can continue to fight. We can continue to kill -- and continue to be
killed. But we can also try to put a stop to this never-ending cycle of
blood. We can also give peace a chance.

The Government chose to give peace a chance. The Government chose to do
something to achieve it.

A position rather far to the right of the present Israeli Government wouldn't you say?

Oh Viv about that Mark Regev interview in which he mysteriously is cut off in mid flow perhaps because he was going to go on to say that on 4 November 2008, Israel launched a military strike on Hamas to destroy a tunnel on the Gaza-Israel border dug by terrorists to infiltrate into Israel and abduct soldiers. The raid was not a violation of the ceasefire, but a legitimate step to remove an immediate threat. A gunfight broke out, in which one Hamas fighter was killed. Hamas responded with a barrage of mortar and rocket fire at Israeli troops. It helps if you give the whole picture doesn't it?

The point was that Rabin HY"D - whether he was in favour of a Palestinian state or not - was assassinated for being just as courageous as Sadat. Or to put it more simply, the Israeli far right incited against Rabin for months before the Jewish terrorist Amir, yimach shemo, pulled the trigger. In other words, and to make it even clearer, if you'll excuse the pun, those wot live in glass houses shouldn't run about naked.

Millis completely off the point as usual.
I made the point about Sadat because there is no Palestinian leader willing to sign a peace treaty with Israel because he knows he is a dead man walking as did Sadat. And you bring up Rabin's assassination.
Rabin was never a dead man walking no one bumped off Begin for making a peace treaty with Sadat did they - even though thousands of Jews were moved out of Sinai? The murder had nothing to do with right wing incitement but everything to do with the Oslo Accords two years earlier that led to thousands of Israeli fatalities.
Your claim that Israeli far right incitement against Rabin led to the murder is total rubbish and has been completely discredited as an illegitimate way of trying to silence right wing opinion in Israel. I suggest you read what someone actually involved in the plot to assassinate him has to say
http://www.al-monitor.com/pulse/culture/2012/07/hagai-amir-on-facebook-w...

Next time you must try harder - Rabin was never for a Palestinian state and all for retaining Jewish sovereignty in Judea and Samaria live with it.

Rabin HY"D was a dead man walking, Advis3r, because the far right incited. Begin Z"L wasn't a dead man walking because there was no incitement. Had Begin gone down the route of trying seriously to accommodate the Palestinians in the Occupied Territories, instead of trying to kick the issue into the long grass of autonomy, he too woyld have been assassinated by some extreme right wing Jewish terrorist.

And Rabin, had he been allowed to live by the far right, would no doubt have come to the same conclusion that so many other rational people came to; that Israel has no chance of surviving as a Jewish and democratic state unless it relinquished the occupied territories to the Palestinians for a state of their own. He, unlike the far right and the religio-ethnic ultra-nationalists, was no dogmatist. Dogma should be left to the Church, which brings me back to the Bible Belt Evangelicals clones - and clowns - who are developing their own non-Jewish sub-sect in the occupied territories.
