This 16-year old Palestinian girl is amazing. She is so brave, and she and her family has suffered so much at the hands of Israelis. She is now in prison for slapping a soldier. She was angry because the Israeli soldiers had shot a rubber bullet in her cousin's face.
Some senior Israeli officials have suggested she should be raped as punishment for offending the dignity of the Israeli soldiers. Many Palestinian women and girls have been sexually abused in Israeli prisons, so this is not an idle threat.
