عهد التميمي النجمة و«الكارثة»..

يوليو 30, 2018

روزانا رمّال

لن تكون قصة أسر «عهد التميمي» من قبل الاحتلال الإسرائيلي وإطلاق سراحها قصة عادية من قصص أسر الفلسطينيات مستقبلاً لكل ما تحمله من استثنائية كادت تطيح بصورة الكيان المرتبك أمام المجتمع الدولي. فكم هي المرات النادرة التي احرجت فيها «إسرائيل» أمام العالم لهمجيتها.

ليست صور الدماء غالباً وحدها ما يحفظ في ذاكرة الرأي العام العالمي. وليس الدم وحده قادراً على تحريك المنظمات الدولية والانسانية وتغيير قواعد اللعبة. وعهد التميمي ونضالها بالعيون والشفاه والصوت والروح والقلب دليل، لكن الظلام الذي يحيط بالإسرائيليين حيال أطفال فلسطين كان وحده أكثر مَن أوقع تل ابيب بخطر تصدُّع صورتها امام كل من تعاطف معها من عواصم العالم. وهو الأمر الذي التفتت اليه صحف «إسرائيل» وكبار خبرائها لحظة أسرها، فكانت ان سجلت الكاميرات الصفعة الكبيرة على وجه الجندي الإسرائيلي التي كانت بالواقع صفعة لـ»إسرائيل» بأكملها وانتشر المقطع بشكل كبير ومعه الغضب بين المتطرفين الإسرائيليين وقيادات كبيرة من الجيش الإسرائيلي، عقبتها مطالبات صارخة بمعاقبة الفتاة الشابة لما في ذلك من عامل ردع لشبان من جيلها كي لا يتكرّر هذا المشهد مجدداً، وهو مشهد إهانة الجيش الإسرائيلي.

كل شيء سار بعكس ما سعت إليه القيادات الإسرائيلية، خصوصاً أفيغدور ليبرمان وزير الدفاع المستنفر داخلياً أمام المستوطنين الذين ارتفعت حدة اشتباكاتهم المباشرة مع الفلسطينيين بشكل كبير كيف بالحال الأراضي المحتلة كانت تتحضر لنقل السفارة الأميركية اليها وتغلي على وقع تدنيس قوات الاحتلال أسبوعياً المسجد الأقصى وتهدد بالمزيد حتى وصول التلويح بصفقة القرن أوجه!

من ناحية عهد، فإن كل شيء سار بشكل لافت وحمل المتظاهرون المناصرون للقضية الفلسطينية في كل عواصم العالم صورها ونشرت حملات دعائية وطرقية تتغنى بجمالها وبشعرها الذهبي وعيونها الملوّنة حتى صارت نجمة عالمية، بحسب هارتس الإسرائيلية التي اعتبرت عهد التميمي «الكارثة» على الدعاية الإسرائيلية!

خرجت عهد من السجن مع والدتها بعد قضاء ثمانية أشهر في سجون الاحتلال الإسرائيلي الى المكان نفسه التي صفعت فيه جندياً اعتدى علىيها بالقرب من باحة منزلها في قرية النبي صالح في الضفة الغربية المحتلة… خرجت عهد وخرج معها وابل من العنفوان والكبرياء على الكيان الغاصب. فإن شيئاً لم يهدئ روعها وشيئاً من تلك القضبان لم يحني ظهرها ولا تزال تلك الجميلة تعد بالكثير. هذا فحوى كلام الفتاة التي سابقت عمر النضج وتفتّحت على مسؤولية تعليم الأطفال كيف يكونون أسياداً وأحراراً في ظل الاحتلال بالوقت الذي يتنافس فيه حكام الدول العربية على الذل والهوان ودفع الأموال العربية ووهب الثروات النفطية الى الولايات المتحدة الأميركية كرهائن حقيقيين وأسرى محكوم عليهم بالمؤبد!

وحدك عهد التميمي «حرة»..

تتحدث معاهد الدراسات الإسرائيلية منذ أسر عهد عن «صورة» «إسرائيل» المهتزة، وتشرح كيف تحوّلت الفتاة الصغيرة «ظاهرة» أحرجت «إسرائيل» في الوقت الذي لم تتمكن فيه منظمات دولية القيام بذلك وكيف تحولت مادة خبرية على رأس وسائل الإعلام حول العالم، ورمزاً للمقاومة والكفاح الذي تبذل «إسرائيل» جهداً للتخفيف من عناصر تأجيجه لدى الجيل الجديد ليتبين بحالة عهد أن شيئاً من هذا لم يكن ممكناً إنجازه إلا ان المستوطنين الذين يجدون فيها خصماً على صغرها اكتشفوا عن صراع حيوي ينتابهم عند كل طلوع فجر وغروب شمس. فلا شيء مستقر في الأراضي المحتلة وكل شيء مهتز في مكونات الكيان وأهله ما رفع منسوب الحركات اليهودية المتطرفة خلال السنوات الماضية أكثر من أي وقت مضى.

عهد التميمي فعلاً «كارثة» على الدعاية الإسرائيلية، حسب وصف الصحيفة الصهيونية لها. ففي الوقت الذي ضغطت فيها منظمات يهودية متطرفة لعدم إطلاق سراحها، وجدت القيادة الإسرائيلية أن الإمعان في الاسر يستجلب المزيد من الضغوط والتساؤلات التي تصعّب على «إسرائيل» مهمة التقدم أكثر باتجاه مقبولية تطمح اليها لدى الجوار وترويج دعاية السلام الممكن والمرجو منذ عقود مع طموح مضاعف اليوم بتمرير صفقة القرن او التأسيس لها من دون إزعاج. وهي الخطة «الانسيابية» التي يعمل عليها بهدوء تماماً كما مر ملف نقل السفارة الأميركية بصمت شعبي عربي واضح. أما من جهة صورة الكيان فإن المظلومية التي تدعيها «إسرائيل» غالباً من اجل استعطاف الدول الكبرى، خصوصاً تلك المؤيدة لتعزيز فرص تمكين الدولية اليهودية، اهتزت لحظة أسر الفتاة «القاصر» بما تعارض مع كل الأعراف الدولية، خصوصاً أن مسألة التصنيفات الدولية لجهة معاملة الأطفال وحماية حقوق الانسان، خصوصاً القاصرات، في المنطقة العربية تتكفل بنسج صورة كاملة عن الجهة المقصودة وبالبقاء على عهد سجينة تخسر «إسرائيل» ما تبقى من ماء وجه أمام المساندين والمؤيدين حقوقياً. كل هذا بسبب الجاذبية التي تمتّعت بها عهد والتي أدارت انظار العالم كله نحوها. فهي طفلة كاريزمية من الدرجة الأولى. وفي هذا العصر تشكل أحد عناصر الترويج اللافتة لوجه مشرق عن المقاومة بدون أي تأويلات أو شوائب.

In its decision, “Israel” claimed a “lack of regret, the severity of the offenses and an assessment of the danger she poses.”


Ahed Tamimi, arrested since December 19, is well-known for targeting an “Israeli” officer and soldier, who were attacking her family and home.
Meanwhile, “Israeli” forces have shot and killed a 21-year-old Palestinian during a raid in a village near the West Bank city of Ramallah.

The incident took place in the village of Nabi Salih on Wednesday. Clashes erupted after “Israeli” troops stormed a number of houses there.

The Palestinian Health Ministry identified the victim as Izza Abdul-Hafiz al-Tamimi, adding that Zionist forces had directly fired three bullets at him.

Palestinian activist Bilal Tamimi told the official Wafa news agency that “Israeli” soldiers had prevented Palestinian medical teams from attending the youth.

Another Palestinian was also injured in the clashes.

Over 400 Palestinian Prisoners to Go on Hunger Strike in Israeli Jails

June 1, 2018

Palestinian prisoners

Hundreds of Palestinian prisoners currently being held in Israeli jails and detention facilities are expected to launch a hunger strike next week in protest against their detention without charge or trial.

Head of the Palestinian Authority’s Committee for Prisoners’ Affairs, Issa Qaraqe, said in a statement that some 500 Palestinian inmates have been boycotting Israeli courts since February, and demanding an end to Israel’s policy of administrative detention – a controversial form of imprisonment that allows Israeli authorities to detain individuals indefinitely without charge, trial or access to counsel.

Qaraqe added that the detainees would be “escalating measures” in early June, and would be launching a widespread hunger strike.

The administrative detainees are calling upon people from all walks of the Palestinian nation to support their action, the Palestinian official said.

Qaraqe further noted that he expects Israeli authorities to “exercise unprecedented repression and isolate the inmates” during the strike.

More than 7,000 Palestinians are reportedly held at Israeli jails. Hundreds of the inmates have apparently been incarcerated under the practice of administrative detention, a policy under which Palestinian inmates are kept in Israeli detention facilities without trial or charge.

Some Palestinian prisoners have been held in administrative detention for up to eleven years.

Jewish Mentality: israeli Lawmaker: Palestinian Teen Tamimi ‘Should Have Gotten a Bullet, at Least in the Knee’

Ahed Tamimi, 17, is serving an eight-month prison sentence after she was filmed slapping an Israeli soldier

Ahed Tamimi, the Palestinian teenager famed for slapping an Israeli soldier on camera, should have been shot, at least in the knee, Deputy Knesset Speaker Bezalel Smotrich (Habayit Hayehudi) wrote on Twitter Saturday.

“In my opinion, she should have gotten a bullet, at least in the kneecap,” he wrote. “That would have put her under house arrest for the rest of her life.”

He was responding to journalist Yinon Magal, who had reposted the footage of Tamimi slapping the soldier along with the text, “I’m watching this clip again and am so glad that Tamimi is still in jail. Sometimes, it’s good that the mills of justice grind slowly.”

Tamimi, 17, was arrested and charged soon after the incident took place last December. In March, she was convicted in a plea bargain of assaulting a soldier, incitement and interfering with a soldier in the line of duty. She was sentenced to eight months in prison plus a fine of 5,000 shekels ($1,400).

MK Michal Rozin (Meretz) responded angrily to Smotrich’s tweet. “You should be ashamed of yourself! Should the hilltop youth from Samaria who threw stones at IDF soldiers last week also have been shot?” she wrote on Twitter, referring to violent settlers in the northern West Bank. “Oh, I forgot – the law is different for enemies …”

“I don’t accept your excuses and explanations,” she added. “You’re a thug and an inciter.”

Tamimi’s mother Nariman and cousin Nur were also convicted in slapping incident. Nariman Tamimi, who shot the video, was sentenced to eight months in prison and a 6,000-shekel fine for incitement, abetting an assault and interfering with a soldier in the line of duty. Nur, who also slapped the soldier, was given a five-month suspended sentence and fined 2,000 shekels.

In the original indictment, Ahed Tamimi was also charged with several other offenses, including throwing stones on various occasions.

The family of Ahed Tamimi, the Palestinian teenager who garnered international attention after being detained and sentenced to eight months in prison for slapping an Israeli soldier, released on Monday footage of the 17-year-old girl being interrogated by Israeli officers in the days following the arrest.

Because she is a minor, Israeli authorities are required to hand over excerpts of footage of interrogations to Tamimi’s lawyer upon request. Her family later decided to make public excerpts of the video they had been provided.

Tamimi’s lawyer, Gaby Lasky, filed a complaint with the Israeli general attorney last Monday in light of the footage showing an interrogator telling the teen she has “eyes like an angel”.

Lasky has accused the interrogators of sexual harassment amounting to a “gross violation of the law”, made worse in light of Tamimi’s age.

“The video shows Ahed’s defiance and sense of confrontation through her voice, through her silence and by slapping their soldier,” Ahed’s father, Bassem Tamimi, said at a press conference in the West Bank city of Ramallah on Monday. “This defiance is the message of our new generation. The single purpose of this interrogation was to break the symbolism of defiance that she represents by trying to have her let go of her right to remain silent. She did not.”

Bassem Tamimi said his daughter was interrogated every day during the first 10 days of her detention, with the exception of the day when she was taken to court, adding that interrogations lasted up to 12 consecutive hours.

He added that she was subjected to solitary confinement, sleep deprivation for up to 34 hours, and lengthy and difficult transfers between prison and the court in the “bosta” – the Arabic term for the vans carrying prisoners.

The footage seen by Middle East Eye shows Tamimi being interrogated on 26 December, a week after her arrest, at a police station in Shaar Binyamin, an Israeli settlement in the West Bank.

Tamimi, then 16-year-old, is seen sitting on a chair in a winter coat, with one Israeli interrogator sitting behind a desk out of the camera’s range, while another, reportedly from the Aman military intelligence, sits next to her, at times scooting closer to her during the interrogation with his legs seemingly open – a stance commonly used by Israeli interrogators to intimidate women, according to several former female Palestinian prisoners who have spoken to MEE.

In breach of regulations regarding the detention of minors, Tamimi is interrogated without a lawyer or guardian present, nor is a female officer seen at any point in the room, despite their presence being mandated during the interrogation of women.

The interrogators try in turn intimidation, guilt, and bizarre attempts at establishing a rapport throughout the video, while Ahed keeps silent looking back and forth between the two men and occasionally burrowing her face into her collar, only speaking up to say: “I hold the right to remain silent.”

In one particularly jarring instance, the Aman interrogator leans towards Tamimi and shouts at her that she looks like his sister.

“My little sister is blonde and her eyes are like yours… When she goes to the beach, yeah? Like a hamburger,” he says loudly in broken Arabic, laughing. “For real, how are you in the sun? Like my sister? Red, red, red?”

The interrogators also try to induce guilt in Tamimi, telling her that she would be responsible for any harm that might befall residents of her village, Nabi Saleh, should she keep refusing to identify people in videos shown to her.

“We will take everyone if you don’t cooperate,” the Aman interrogator says, as Ahed shifts uneasily in her chair. “It’s in your hands. It’s in your hands.”

“I don’t want to have to bring those children here. Children. Please,” he adds. “You say something, maybe we don’t need to.”

Bassem Tamimi highlighted on Monday that the footage showed tactics used regularly by Israeli forces on Palestinian children, denouncing them as violating international humanitarian law.

“This all comes in the context of the occupation trying to target Palestinian childhood,” Tamimi said at the press conference, hailing Ahed’s commitment to staying silent as “confronting the interrogator without fear entering her heart”.

Ahed was 16 when she was arrested for slapping an Israeli soldier who would not leave her family’s property in her hometown of Nabi Saleh, on the same day as Israeli forces shot her 15-year-old cousin Mohammed Tamimi in the head with a rubber-coated steel bullet.

A video of the incident went viral on Israeli social media, showing her slapping, kicking and hitting two armed Israeli soldiers. Her mother, Nariman Tamimi, was also detained and sentenced to eight months in prison for filming and sharing the aforementioned video.

Ahed’s trial gained international media coverage and human right groups, including Amnesty International, have campaigned for her to be released.

The international attention prompted the Israeli court to hold hearings on Tamimi’s case behind closed doors, ostensibly to uphold her right to privacy as a minor, despite the Palestinian teenager waiving her right, arguing that public proceedings would protect her from what she has publicly called an “illegitimate court”.

Several rights organisations have denounced the incarceration conditions for Palestinian children over the years – pointing to the systematic prosecution in front of military courts, with a nearly 100 percent conviction rate.

According to Defense for Children International-Palestine (DCIP), three out of four minors are subjected to physical violence during arrest or interrogation. According to Prisoners’ rights NGO Addameer, 356 Palestinian minors were detained by Israel as of March.

Reports by Human Rights Watch (HRW) and the Israeli rights groups B’Tselem and HaMoked have found that Israeli forces use unnecessary force while detaining children and “routinely” interrogate them without the presence of a parent or lawyer. Several minors reported being slapped, kicked, hit and blindfolded during their arrest or interrogation, or made to sign documents in Hebrew despite not speaking the language.
