Ahed Tamimi Hits and Kicks Israeli Soldiers

The important thing to bear in mind in all communications about Ahed Tamimi, who will be 17 on Jan 31st,  is that she is a survivor of years and years of child abuse by her parents - supported and urged on to further abuse by the PA, Hamas and far too many UK politicians.

 Not only is using children as combatants and participants in an armed conflict cild abuse— it is a war crime, defined as such by a specific protocol of the UN.

Even if she is now technically an adult, she is, having endured this child abuse for at least ten years, a vulnerable adult, whose greatest need is for care and protection from further abuse of this kind, which exploits her vulnerability.
