1. That's what non-violent resistance is. Get used to it.
Rachel Rabin ,   TA, Israel   (12.30.12)
This is what we will be facing each and every day by millions of Pelstinians across Occupied Palestine and outside of it. This is what all the illegal colonialists will face as they are surrounded each and every day by millions of Palestinians demanding their human rights, their freedom, their dignity, and their humanity back. Lets all get used to it. And the ICC is not far behind. It's gonna be a fun 2013 for the illegal settlers.
2. Israeli soldiers are cowards...
3. Palestinian propaganda creates
Get Real ,   UK   (12.30.12)
and never misses an opportunity. Contrived at the time to record on camera an Israeli response to the provocation, they still use the stunt to get some mileage out of it. Next stops for her, Tehran and the UN, but not Damascus. Apparently Syrian soldiers have a different response to those of Israels.
4. Erdogan is an Id...t
Serge ,   NY, US   (12.30.12)
Israel should invite to ISrael all the Armenians and Kurds to hurt by the Turks and congratulte them for confronting the barbaric Otoman Empire for so long. Erdogan belongs to the same primitive arab mentality that governs most of the arab world, but the only diference is that he tries to show himself as a moderate in order to take advantage of the EU and OTAN. A bad egg is always a bad egg. Hope He wil be gone soon the same way as Chavez from Venezuela and Turkey will become a moderate country.
5. the medal
daniela   (12.30.12)
Should go to the soldiers who did not react to the stupidity of this brainwahed girl. But i would give a suggestion to kurdish people:try and do the same thing this palestinian girl did. Stand in front of a turkish soldier, curse him and tell him he stole your land. Lets see the reaction. Lets see mr erdogan breakfast invitation...
6. I would not like a mother like that..
only the kurds ,   uk   (12.30.12)
i would love to see how arbas and turks would deal with little kids like this. And what lovely mothers for encouraging their kids to put them in dangure. Just shows again what little regard the arabs have for human life...
7. #3, Not Tehran
Charlie ,   New York   (12.30.12)
I don't think Iran would invite a girl who dresses so immodestly.
8. Palestinian girl provokes Israeli soldier
Gary ,   Cape Town   (12.30.12)
What the world seems to miss is the level of comfort this young Palestinian girl has to curse and provoke an Israeli soldier. She has no fear that she will be harmed because of the professionalism of the idf soldiers and the care they have for all people ...Palestinians included ... In all Arab countries and most other countries this girl would not dare approach a soldier in this manner for fear of being physically hurt.
9. Little Kurdish Girl
Jakob ,   Houston USA   (12.30.12)
President Peres should invite a young Kurdish girl to breakfast, give her gifts, and express admiration for the courage of her people. Kurds will control Anatolia within two generations - Israel may as well get on the winning side. The Turks have one child per couple - the Kurds have four or five. It is over for the Turks.
10. Re: Wa'ad Tamimi
Scarborough1414 ,   Scarborough, Ontario   (12.30.12)
Miss Tamimi was chosen to confront soldiers because of her blond hair and light skin. She could pass as a European girl at first glance. Therefore she evokes more sympathy with a European crowd than a girl who looks like a "typical" Arab. BTW, in meeting PM Erdogan, how did Miss Tamimi talk to him? Did she learn Turkish in school? Does Erdogan speak Arabic in the Palestinian's dialect (somewhat different than the Arabic in the Gulf or in N. Africa)? He must have used an interpreter. Watch out. The Ottomans are trying to rise again.
11. Ottoman Empire
Ottoman Empire was stabbed by the Arabs, and for sure, when the Arabs do not want the Turks, they will stabbed them again.
12. @7
Walter ,   Germany   (12.30.12)
Obviously you mixed Teheran with Beith Shemesh. In Teheran you see women in jeans. Try wearing Levi's in Beith Shemesh. You've never been outside the US, aren't you? In the outback it's different, but Teheran itself is much more liberal than some parts of Israel.
13. 1 Rachel
alsky ,   toronto   (12.31.12)
we will see about that ! I plan on purcashing a nice home in E1 very soon. Now do something useful and look up San Remo and see who are the real 'occupiers'
14. frustrated provocation
jorge ,   argentina   (12.31.12)
DonĀ“t need to be wise to understand that girls provocating a soldier with several cameras filming the incident were aimed to show the cruelty of the soldier stoping her. Can you imagine a palestine terrorist with an israeli girl??
15. Let her stay there
Sarah B ,   U.S.A. / Israel   (12.31.12)
Save her the trouble of packing to leave for Jordan .... screeching little foul-mouthed harpy. I agree with Daniela, however. Let her try that stunt on behalf of the Kurdish people with a Turkish soldier. She'll be picking her teeth up off the ground -- assuming she's alive to do so.
16. To: Gary at No. 8
Sarah B ,   U.S.A. / Israel   (12.31.12)
Physically hurt? Oh, if only. In most countries in the world, this shrieking harpy would be physically very, very dead. Hey .... can we send the little hyena somewhere? Say, the Congo? The Sudan? Do you suppose she'd mind terribly being gang-raped before being killed? Let's find out.
17. @12
Mike ,   Raanana   (12.31.12)
And what part of B' Shemesh are you referring to? And when was the last time you were personally in Tehran? Oh Walter 'Super Traveler' and Mr Know It All, please enlighten us with some more stories from your fictional travels.
18. #12 Walter
David ,   Israel   (12.31.12)
And hanging homosexuals in public displayed execution is liberal Iran ? This sort of "liberalism" is seen in parts of Bet Shemesh ? Pull your head out from under the rock in Germany your living in. Theres no such thing as stoning or honor killing that commonly prevails in the Muslim world in the most extreme of religious Jewish communities You can't make any comparison in the slightest . A liberal part of Iran where apparently women can wear jeans isnt as liberal as say Tel Aviv or the majority of Israel where women wear bikinis like any other Western country. Or further more have female CEOs and the most prestigious position as pilots in the Air Force like in Israel
19. Yep Israel doesn't kill children
Mordechai   (12.31.12)
I am not sure why the anti Israel activists get so excited by this. It basically proves what Israel's supporters say, Israel is a democracy where the Arab minority is free and that includes the freedom to yell at a soldier, the freedom to travel to Turkey to get an anti Israel award, the freedom to dress as she wants. All freedoms that don't exist in Syria where almost 100K muslims have been killed protesting the government, Hamas where she would have been killed on the spot yelling at a Hamas terrorists, Egypt where she would have been raped and killed for protesting against the muslim brotherhood
20. Rachel @1, as long as it is non-violent they can yell their
leo ,   usa   (12.31.12)
sases off for what everybody cares. . Actually if it were non-violent you wouldn't have to fence them out , would you.
21. Should she be married
Aslam ,   Los Angeles, USA   (12.31.12)
She's getting kind of old & those red pants are for the infidels
22. # 12
Birdi ,   Israel   (12.31.12)
Actually you are wrong. Whilst on a visit to freinds in Beit Shemesh I wore jeans & no one batted an eye.
23. # 7
Birdi ,   Israel   (12.31.12)
You are correct. In Iran women have to cover their arms & the rest of their body.
24. # 5
Birdi ,   Israel   (12.31.12)
So very true Daniella.
25. send her to Assad
Jerry   (12.31.12)
26. I wonder what her fate would....
Robert ,   Australia   (12.31.12)
....have been if the camera had not been on......
27. Ask yourself this, Robert, #26:
M. Davison ,   Ra'anana, Israel   (12.31.12)
What would have happened if she had raised her fist and threatened an Australian policeman doing his normal job. Had the soldiers not acted with restraint, she would have been delighted-- after all, that was her whole intention-- to provoke a violent incident where she could be presented as the victim. Several unofficial Arab accounts after the incident had her livid with rage that the soldiers didn't bite on her provocation. When trying to understand the Arab mentality, you have to take eveything you think is logical and stand it on its head. Just think... if you had a 13-year-old daughter, would you allow her to go out and provoke policemen if you thought there was the slightest chance she would be hurt by those coppers? Now try to understand why a mother would support her child in doing this...
28. To: No. 26
Sarah B ,   U.S.A. / Israel   (12.31.12)
If the cameras had not been on, she wouldn't have had a reason to do what she did. I wonder -- is it more frustrating for you or for her that the soldier did nothing but laugh?
29. Other footage showed hostile girl was prompted to attack
Chaim Ben Kahan ,   Efrat, Israel   (12.31.12)
Another pawn of the Palestinians. The techniques of using women as suicide bombers and children as human shields has not worked well, so now they off camera prompt children to hit soldiers in order to garnish sympathy. This little girl was rewarded for acting violently against the police and later no doubt she will be asked to strap on explosives and murder innocent Jews. Such is the life of an Arab pawn.
30. Juvenille Deliquent rewarded for acting violently
Chaim Ben Kahan ,   Efrat, Israel   (12.31.12)
This child should be put into a home for juvenille delinquents.
