If you are a sixteen year old girl, standing up to the men of the Israeli military is highly risky. You may not have heard of Ahed Tamimi. She is being held in an Israeli jail for slapping an Israeli soldier. Yes, they are threatened by the power of children and hold many in jails in quite poor conditions. One might think a sophisticated government like that of Israel would know better. But this girl, who turns 17 on January 31, is widely despised throughout Israel and is being threatened with rape. CODEPINK Coordinator for Middle East Campaigns Ariel Gold tells this amazing and truly shocking story. And tells of a bill in congress to help Palestinians get fair treatment.
