The Emperor’s New Terrorist

The Israeli occupation prosecutors have been working arduously for two months, like the tailors in Hans Christian Andersen’s The Emperor’s New Clothes, to tailor a case for Ahed Tamimi, in order to make her a terrorist.

After her arrest, it was ruled that she must be kept in prison until the end of proceedings, because, God forbid, she might slap again.

After indicting her on some rather ridiculous charges such as “interfering with a soldier carrying out his duties”, her trial was to actually begin on her 17th birthday, the 31st of January – but it was delayed a week, and then another week. The prosecutors needed more time to tailor the final, invisible touches to this amazing case.

Finally, last week, the trial started, and we were meant to witness it. But alas, after a few minutes, the judge suddenly ordered all spectators except family members to leave and announced that the proceedings would continue behind closed doors. He said he was acting in the best interest of a juvenile defendant.  

That was not in the interest of Ahed Tamimi, nor of her family. “The court decided what is best for the court, and not what is good for Ahed,” Ahed’s defense attorney Gaby Lasky told reporters, and said that the judge was trying to keep the world from watching.

But the occupation judge knows best. Better than Ahed’s parents, better than Ahed herself – what is best for Ahed. More fairytales. 

And this reminds me of another fairytale – Rapunzel – in Disney’s rendering called “Tangled”. In the song called “Mother knows best”, Rapunzel is kidnapped by the fake “Mother Gothel” who wants to benefit from the magical power of her hair. Gothel sings to her that it’s best for her to remain imprisoned because of what’s awaiting outside – because mother knows best. 

So the military court apparently thinks that it is best for Ahed that her case would be handled “in the dark, without witnesses and cameras”, just as Israeli journalist Ben Caspit had opined would be best.

Of course, the Israeli occupation court only wants Ahed’s best. Why should we not believe that, or any other fairy tale?

But in the real world, as Israeli human rights lawyer Michael Sfard tells us, Israeli military law “is set up to label every act of resistance, violent or nonviolent, as criminal” and the military court system is just another branch of an occupying army. “It is not about justice,” he said. “Its main objective is to curb any attempt of resistance and enhance the control over the population.” 

Of course the military court thinks it is best for Ahed to learn not to resist. Resistance can be dangerous for you. This is something that Israel’s military occupation knows best.

Ahed’s next hearing is set for March 11th. Yet Attorney Lasky noted after the last hearing that she is still waiting to receive case material from the prosecutor. Meanwhile Ahed remains in prison. There’s time – the prosecution tailors are working. Patience.

The military prosecution is working hard to tailor a “just” case from its intrinsic corruption, but the thread has no substance, it is invisible. That’s why they have to close the court doors, just like in The Emperor’s New Clothes, until the final moment where they would present to the world the final sentence. Ahed might not get life in prison as Education Minister Bennett had suggested, but a villain they will no doubt attempt to make of her. And the Israelis who cannot accept the slap Ahed gave the soldier, they will go “oh”, and “ah”, “we knew there was something wrong with her”, they will totally see it.

But this case will have an ironic twist. Israel thinks it is tailoring the case for Ahed – but actually it is preparing transparent clothing for itself. Israel is the Emperor, and it will eventually go out in broad daylight, displaying its ridiculous oppression for the whole world to see.

And it will only take a little boy to finally shout: “But they haven’t got anything on”.

    Name another Palestinian who slapped Palestine’s colonial settlers and got away

    with it. Ahed knew that the chances of the Zionist army slapping her back were

    not there because the Zionist army were aware that her mother was not only

    recording it but transmitting it live to Facebook. Without the cameras, these

    most barbaric savages would have knocked her down so hard that she may have

    needed hospitalization. She felt safe and engaged in a reckless behaviour and once

    again she was seeking publicty or even another award from Turkey. She gambled and

    lost!

    Broadcasting the court proceedings would have been what the publicity-seeking

    Tamimi family would have loved. This family is known for getting arrested just

    for publicity reasons.

    I have been asking and never receiving replies what Ahed did that makes her such

    a special freedom fighter. She flexed her muscles at the Zionist army at the age

    of 11 while her mother was standing only a few feet away recording it. Did she

    face any threat from the Zionist army who were entertained by her theatrics? And

    at the age of 15, her brother was attacked and the entire family came together

    and rescued him. That is what families do.

    Ahed is simply a young Palestinian woman that the West’s attraction to her

    “western looks” had gone to her head and she had been seen walking around trying

    to look like “Wonder woman”. She has such a shallow understanding of the conflict

    that anytime she was asked to say something only said something that looked very

    rehearsed.

    She has already paid the price and she should be released, but God-oh-God, she

    will get invited to many places in the West to give her opinion which is nothing

    more than what she memorized the day before. The Tamimi family should let this

    child enjoy a couple of her childhood years left instead of pushing her around

    here and there seeking publicity.

    I do believe that I am the only one on the Palestinian side who have been very

    critical of this Tamimi family, I just cannot stand all their deliberate

    attention-grabbing maneuvers. Fake is fake and real is real.

    Look at this picture. Her mother had instructed her to holler in Arabic (a

    language the Zionist army does not understand) but it was meant for her mother’s

    video camera. Were the Zionists not laughing at her?

  • TecumsehUnfaced

    Shouldn’t she have just given the soldier the finger? You know, just be nonviolent about it.

  • Helen4Yemen

    Actually, here she is giving the finger to the Zionist army.

    This wild woman was slapping and punching a well-armed

    Zionist army that hardly any other Palestinian would dare because

    she had missed going abroad for a “courage-award”. Otherwise,

    she must be insane. I have so many videos of how this most

    barbaric Zionist army treat the Palestinians and for this fake

    actress to expect that she would suffers no consequences but only

    gets flown to Turkey for another award and a stash of Turkish

    cash in Mama Tamimi’s purse is just pure hallucination.

    https://i.imgur.COM/nmvgqJp.jpg

  • Helen4Yemen

    This is what she got the “courage-award”
    for in Turkey. Here is her mother
    videotaping her and directing her theatrics.
    The Turkish people aught to know better and
    reward the Palestinians who deserve it and
    not this publicity-hungry fake actress.

    Again, I ask anyone to tell me what did this
    young woman do to deserve such publicity and
    admireation (except for her “golden hair” as
    father describes her?)

    I must tell you that when I look at what
    the Tamimi family does to gain publicity just
    makes me sick. They are using the Palestinian
    tragedy for their own personal benefit.

  • TecumsehUnfaced

    I wonder if anyone told her what it means.

  • TecumsehUnfaced

    Too bad she didn’t give it to them gently with a ssacharine smile to fvck their sociopathic Talmudic little supremacist minds.

  • Helen4Yemen

    Look at her courage!

    https://i.imgur.COM/JPBikLu.png

  • TecumsehUnfaced

    The psychological gargoyles are laughing. It’s like being menaced by a grasshopper.

  • Helen4Yemen

    How about an ant?

  • Helen4Yemen

    And the grasshopper was admired by the good folks of the West and not so much for the grasshopper’s gymnastics and flexing its little legs but for the grasshopper’s shiny looks!

  • TecumsehUnfaced

    No, ants work seriously. Grasshoppers play at things. This one played way too long. They could let a puny kid do it, but not one approaching adult size. Now she will be made an example of.

  • TecumsehUnfaced

    You mean “shined up” looks, don’t you?

    Still, it was not wise to her to become nonviolent. Gandhi never would have done that. He used other violent leaders for that purpose and deflect British attention from his forays, like salt gathering. He knew that Subhas Chandra Bose and his gang were busily subverting the British trained army to patriotism.

    But the army occupying Palestine is hopelessly subverted to Talmudic thuggery. It will never be force for good and should be expelled from Palestine.

  • TecumsehUnfaced

    Did you know that Sarah Silverman has come out in support of Ahed? I’ve hated her ever since she tired to dragoon the Bernie supporters into giving their support to their noisome Clinton sociopath.

    So I love to see all the rotten tomatoes her outraged fellow Zionists are throwing at her. What a group they are! To think that the Shahanshah gathered them to administer his wealth extraction temple states! Too bad Alexander didn’t come through a couple of hundred years year to prevent this gang from even being invented.

  • Helen4Yemen

    I would not be able to tell you who this Silverman woman is in a photo lineup, have heard her name but never paid any attention to her. Why is she supporting Ahed? Well, see what it had done for her? Her name is being mentioned. But what I still do not understand is what was the reason that the Turkish PM had had her brought to Turkey for an award? What had she done? Why is it that I seem to be the only person (aside for Zionists) who hate this Tamimi family? Ahed was asked what she had done to receive the award and she said that she tried to protect her family form the enemy. Amazing! She really believes her flexing her little arms scared the enemy away? And how much money did Mama Tamimi haul from Turkey? And since their acting seems to be paying off, why should they stop acting?

  • TecumsehUnfaced

    The guy immediately behind Ahed in the picture looks like a pedophile. I think he is Erdogen’s buddy.

    If the Tamimi had been smart, they would have have quit when Ahed reached puberty and had a growth spurt to make her tall enough to appear a possible menace to the female ZioNazi soldiers to who she is giving the finger in your photo.

  • Helen4Yemen

    Here is the video where the little actress was honored for her bravery in Turkey. It has got to be some kind of politics the Turks were playing to honor this kid for flexing her silly muscles at the Zionist army. I must tell you that people applauded when the actress rose up to receive her award. It reminded me of the Academy Awards. But what I also objected to was that the Turks should have realized that she was only a kid and they should have had more women on stage to be with her. They were are all men in suits and ties and very intimidating for a kid.

    https://www.youtube.COM/watch?v=sZYvY3ghcVg&t=320s

  • TecumsehUnfaced

    She looks confused and uneasy, not at all like she is enjoying the situation. You’re right about more women, especially from her family.

    When she gets out of prison, maybe in 14 years, she could be quite bitter about the way her parents exploited her. They had no right leading her in this manner. They should have helped her get educated, reviewed her homework with her, helped her learn English, maybe another language. My guess is that they did none of that with her. But I know that the ZioNazis minimize educational possibilites for Arabs. They are always bulldozing and sending soldiers into their schools to disrupt classes.

    I hope the ZioNazis will go easy on her, but ZioNazis are supremacists not known for having empathy with the Untermensch.

  • Helen4Yemen

    I do have sympathy for her for sure, after all, she is only a kid. But what bothers me about her is her attitude, all that flying hair trying to look Western, wearing sleeveless shirts where it is very much frowned upon. You know what they say about when you are in Rome … Her father speaks very broken English (somebody needs to tell him not to embarrass himself speaking English, sometimes, he throws in there words that are not Arabic nor English (he had me laughing so hard one day)). Not trying to be judgmental but if one can afford to spend some extra money educating their children English, then they need to make it their highest priority, Without English, one cannot expect to make much progress in life these days. In the Arab world, the demand for English is very high. Therefore, I do condemn the Tamimi family not having invested to teach their children English.

    I think the goddamned predators may want to keep her locked up for very long but it would only add to her fame and more sympathy for her. I must also mention that she managed to keep the Palestine tragedy in the headlines since her arrest and that is always good. How much I would love for her to get serious and study Palestine in depth so that she can be one day be an invited guest at various forums. But she would need strong English for that.

  • TecumsehUnfaced

    What about the possibility of learning it in prison? I would guess not very good, but maybe I’m missing something.

  • Helen4Yemen

    Here are a couple of excerpts from the Atlantic:

    1- “Ahed’s fame isn’t accidental—or, at least, last month’s video wasn’t the first time she had been filmed confronting the Israeli military. She first gained international recognition in 2012 when, as an 11-year-old, she was filmed shaking her fist at a soldier nearly twice her size after the army arrested her older brother—a viral image that earned her an invitation to visit Turkey by then-Prime Minister Recep Tayyip Erdogan. She gained notoriety once more three years later, when she was filmed slapping and biting a masked soldier trying to apprehend her younger brother.”

    Just as I said, there is nothing the youngster did that is worth an award or even fame! They mentioned only those two events, raising her fist and rescuing her brother. I thought perhaps that I
    had missed reading something that she did of significance but there is none.

    2- But in addition to Ahed’s origins, what makes her particularly distinctive to Israelis and international audiences also has to do with how she looks. “Unavoidably, she is blonde and light-skinned and light-eyed,” Ehrenreich, who profiled the Tamimi family in 2012, said. “A great deal of work goes into ‘othering’ Palestinians, to casting them as some really recognizable other… but when suddenly the kid doesn’t fit into those stereotypes—when she actually looks like a European kid or an American kid—then suddenly all that work of dehumanization can’t function, and she can’t be ‘othered’ in the same way. And then people freak out.”

    Therefore, had she been dark-skinned and dark hair, there would be no fame!

  • TecumsehUnfaced

    Haneen Zoabi is someone whose coloring has been ‘othering’ her out in the Western minds of the recognition of heroism that she deserves. She shows incredible courage openly defying European invaders she knows by experience to be sociopaths. If the Western ignoranti can see see Ahed as a hero, they should be able to see Ms. Zoabi as a super hero that makes the flaming bigot, Gal Gadot, like like a tick.

  • Helen4Yemen

    What rights do any colonized people under foreign

    occupation have? The fact that those who will sit in

    judgement of her are the cousins of those she slapped

    guarantees that there is no justice. I will say it one

    thousand or 1 million times: if the Arab people do not

    somehow get it together to remove this most repulsive

    and most deadly enemy stuck in our region that future

    generations can never expect to have normal lives.

    Whatever it takes, these predators must be removed –

    whatever it takes. When I think of the predators, my

    blood just begins to boil. These predators worry only

    if Americans approve or disapprove of their bestiality

    and as Mileikowsky (Netanyahu) once said, 80% of

    Americans approve.

    The Talmudic brainwashing machine has been the best in the world. Today they control the media. Formerly (and many places today), they have kept their people in a brutal totalitarian grip.

    Rabbinical Totalitarianism

    Since the time of the late Roman Empire, Jewish communities had considerable legal powers over their members. Not only powers which arise through voluntary mobilization of social pressure (for example refusal to have any dealing whatsoever with an excommunicated Jew or even to bury his body), but a power of naked coercion: to flog, to imprison, to expel – all this could be inflicted quite legally on an individual Jew by the rabbinical courts for all kinds of offenses. In many countries – Spain and Poland are notable examples – even capital punishment could be and was inflicted, sometimes using particularly cruel methods such as flogging to death. All this was not only permitted but positively encouraged by the state authorities in both Christian and Muslim countries, who besides their general interest in preserving ‘law and order’ had in some cases a more direct financial interest as well. For example, in Spanish archives dating from the 13th and 14th centuries there are records of many detailed orders issued by those most devout Catholic Kings of Castile and Aragon, instructing their no less devout officials to co-operate with the rabbis in enforcing observance of the Sabbath by the Jews. Why? Because whenever a Jew was fined by a rabbinical court for violating the Sabbath, the rabbis had to hand nine tenths of the fine over to the king – a very profitable and effective arrangement. Similarly, one can quote from the responsa written shortly before 1832 by the famous Rabbi Moshe Sofer of Pressburg (now Bratislava), in what was then the autonomous Hungarian Kingdom in the Austrian Empire, and addressed to Vienna in Austria proper, where the Jews had already been granted some considerable individual rights. 2 He laments the fact that since the Jewish congregation in Vienna lost its powers to punish offenders, the Jews there have become lax in matters of religious observance, and adds: ‘Here in Pressburg, when I am told that a Jewish shopkeeper dared to open his shop during the Lesser Holidays, I immediately send a policeman to imprison him.’

    The “good Jews” like Miko or Shlaim or Pappe and the rest

    never mention why this tiny % of world population , the Jews,

    can wield so much power; why during the American elections,

    the candidates are always trying to be the most Jew-lover.

    Why is it that the democratic party receives 60% of all the

    contributions from Jews? Jews are not known for throwing away

    their money, right? That money to the Democrartic party is

    given to receive future favors, right? Why is that the US

    government is willing to alient 1.7 billion Muslims in favor

    of 14 million Jews? Why are the 1.7 billion Muslims so

    powerless in the face of the power of the 14 million Jews?

    I raise these issues hoping others will join in and tell me

    their ideas.

    MYER FELDMAN ORAL HISTORY INTERVIEW – 7/29/1967 JFK ONLINE LIBRARY

    I shared this link with you many months back. This document discloses the power of world Jewry. Kennedy kept asking Feldman what would the Jews think if Kennedy did A-B-C? Kennedy just wanted to make sure that the Jews approved of whatever action he planned to take in Middle Eastern countries. It shook me when I read it and I encourage others to read it.

    (btw: Feldman was very forthright 50 years ago that you cannot expect anyone today to speak the truth as he did then.)

    Pondering this makes it obvious. First, their tribal cohesion allows them to steamroller the competition. Second, their long familiarity and exercise with the power of money gives them direction that other people lack. All ruling elites have always been targeted on the extraction and spending of money. The Jewish ruling elite additionally worked to accumulate it as power. Twain saw only part of the Jews’ success when he analyzed them as money getters. They are also money accumulators, or power accumulators.

    To understand how this remarkable and cohesive tribe of power accumulators emerged, we need to investigate the current scholarly understanding of how they began. We find that they were invented and trained as the Shahanshah’s temple state managers and extractors of wealth for the Persian King of Kings. Hence, they were created with a deep understanding of the power of money and how to extract it from people, and they were imbued with an powerful identity as a ruling class under the Shahanshah. That identity shows up in the Talmud as a vastly superior portion of humanity that has the right to exploit all others mercilessly, e.g.

    “The ‘goyim’ are not humans. They are beasts.” (Baba Mezia 114b)

    “If you eat with a ‘goy’ it is the same as eating with a dog.” (Tosapoth, Jebamoth 94b)

    “All children of the ‘goyim’ (Gentiles) are animals.” (Yebamoth 98a)

    “What a J3w steals from a ‘goy’ he may keep.” (Sanhedrin 57a)

    “J3ws may use subterfuges to circumvent a ‘goy.’” (Baba Kamma 113a)

    Note that rabbis very rarely tell their followers about these, much less the ‘goyim’.

    The power elite of the Jewish tribe has had long exercise and experience of the power of money. They are extraordinarily dangerous to everyone including Jews, just like the power elite of the ‘goyim’ with whom they scheme and thieve. Rothschild and Rockefeller are brother vampires under the skin. The difference is that the Rockefeller bumped into being King Vampires. The Rothschild were that from many centuries of training and they got the ‘tribe’ bound unto them.

    You would think that Kennedy would have been much more careful while angering the murderous thug, David Ben-Gurion, by working to block the Zionist development of nuclear weapons.

    This is from 1965 interview of Ben Gurion. Can anyone even trust what Ben Gurion said to be true? He initiated the topic and therefore, he had a goal in mind that he wanted to achieve by disclosing it.
    ________________________________
    16 July 1965 Interview of Ben Gurion (Source: jfklibrary)

    BEN-GURION: Can I tell you something that is not to be published, which is only to be used for the Archives?

    BAYNE: This is it.

    BEN-GURION: You see, while we were talking he (Kennedy) stood up and took me to a corner far away from the people there. There was Mr. Talbot, our Ambassador, and (Kennedy’s) secretary, Mr. Feldman. He took me away from them and said, “ I was elected by the Jews. .” Later, I understood this is usual in America. He said to me, “You know I was elected by the Jews. I have to do something for them.”. I was shocked. I’m a foreigner; I represent a small state. I didn’t come to him as a Jew, as a voter. And he told me, “You know, I was elected by the Jews of New York. I will do something for you.” I was a little shocked when he said it to me. Then we went back and continued our conversation. This I remember because I was thoroughly impressed, but later I understood that this is usual and in keeping with American politics.

    BAYNE: I see. He wouldn’t have wanted that, perhaps, an open admission of history, but to international relations…

    BEN-GURION: Yes. He took me into a corner at a far away table because we were sitting all together here, and took me over—something like that. [Laughter]

  • TecumsehUnfaced

    Hehe, Kennedy wasn’t around any long to call him a liar. What a total creep!

  • Helen4Yemen

    The creep also said:

    “but later I understood that this is usual and in keeping with

    American politics”

    He meant being elected by Jews is the usual American politics?

    And also as if the creep had no knowledge how much Jewish

    money controls the American elections? That whole conversation

    just sounds so suspicious!

  • TecumsehUnfaced

    I think he just convicted himself of being involved in Kennedy’s death. He was working way too hard to show that he had no motivation to kill Kennedy, since by this supposed exchange Kennedy was anxious not to anger the Jews. It was a very stupid move on Ben Gurion’s part. He eliminated all doubt and tromped all over the idea that Jews are especially smart.

    Thank you for bringing this up.

  • subcomandante Felix

    Helen – or whatever your name is – you had me fooled at first into thinking you were somewhat authentic. But, I now see and
    have an answer to your question: “Why is it that I seem to be the only person (aside for Zionists) who hate this Tamimi family?” You hate Ahed and the Tamimi family because you are Zionist troll trying to discredit Ahed and the Tamimi family for their heroic and long-time resistance to Israeli apartheid. You hate them because they are effective in exposing the truth about the Zionist occupation.

  • KennyB

    I wonder if Jeanne d’Arc would have received similar comments.

  • Robert H. Stiver

    Interesting, the reference to “Tangled.” It is, in the end and forevermore, the vile ZioUSrael “Entangling Alliance” that has young Ahed Tamimi in Zionist incarceration…in her historical homeland, yet. Freedom for Ahed! Justice — FULL Justice — for Palestine! Palestine Is Still THE Issue!

    (De-Occupy the US from the clutches of political/militant/colonial Zionism and it might be possible to De-Occupy Palestine from the same, yet infinitely more terroristic and vindictive, clutches. I have no current reason for optimism in that regard, but I and others of good conscience and morality must not cease resisting history’s utmost evil.)

  • Helen4Yemen

    Are you sure? Because I do not like an acting team who used

    the Palestinian tragedy for their own personal benefit? Why

    do you not tell me one thing Blondie is supposed to have done

    that was worth flying her over to Turkey for an award?

    Blondie was actually asked what she did to deserve the honor

    and she said for showing courage defending her family from

    the “Israeli” army. (I never write “Israel” or “Israeli”

    without quotes). Yea, right! The Zionist army was so scared

    when Blondie was flexing her little muscles, right? I have

    sympathy for her and I do not wish for her to stay one more

    minute in jail, but God-oh-God please, is she going to come

    out showing us how high she can comb her hair and how

    Western she can look?

    I was debating today a bunch of Jews and they do not think I

    could ever be an “Israeli” stooge. Take a look:
