    I see (on AlJz) that the young Palestinian ‘terrorist’ lady: Ahed Tamimi (17 ?) was released from prison; at about age13 she heard her cousin, was shot by Israeli army guards.. she was so upset, she went to the border checkpoint & started slapping, punching & kicking the guards.. about a year ago, they finally arrested her after 2-3 incidents. (aged 16-17) she did about 8-9 months ?

    ‘terrorist’ (as a Israeli spokesperson called her) or Freedom fighter ‘this far, no further’
