Ahed Tamimi

I missed it. did an article on this incident;

Palestinian teen girl charged with assault in case involving Israeli soldier

But it must have been up online very briefly because I missed it.

And typical of Zionist-supporting CBC the article is terribly flawed.

It does not mention that this girl's cousin was seriously wounded with a rubber bullet in his face and disfigured for life just an hour before this incident. It does not mention the hundreds of Palestinian children in Israeli prisons many of whom are abused. It does not mention the lifetime of abuse Ahed and her family have suffered at the hands of Israelis who are trying to steal the water from their village. It does not mention that an Israeli woman who slapped an Israeli soldier was not imprisoned and only received a slap on the wrist. It does not mention that Ahed has become a symbol for Palestinian resistance.

But most of all it does not HONOUR this young girl for her courage and express any concern about her fate at the hand of her oppressors.

And the story continues and deserves moe than the minuscule coverage given to it up to now.
