Ahed will get some media attention, but with the war raging in Gaza after Hamas’ barbaric attack, I doubt she’ll get star treatment for her latest “Shirley Temper” outburst as she has in the past.
We previously reported on a threat posted on Instagram, by Palestinian Media Darling Ahed Tamimi: “What Hitler did to you was nothing. We will drink your blood and eat your skulls.”
Please read that post for background on Ahed, nicknamed “Shirley Temper” because of her regular outbursts since early childhood for the cameras. While she’s now an adult and is fully responsible for her actions, she is the product of a destructive and manipulative propaganda machine by the Tamimi Clan and anti-Israel activists in the West, such as Ariel Gold formerly of Code Pink. For details on this child manipulation system, see our 2017 post, Ahed Tamimi case is about child exploitation by anti-Israel activists.
(Video here in case it disappears from social media)
Over the years, Ahed became more violent as she grew older. In an incident that garnered international attention, she previously was arrested in her late teens for hitting and kicking an Israeli policeman as part of a carefully choreographed provocation directed by her mother:
[YouTube age-restricted the video, which has been on YouTube for several years without restriction, after I posted it here. Funny how that works. Anyway, here it is.]
This set off a long “Free Ahed” orchestrated campaign, in which Code Pink and Gold – with a shout out from Hamas, were active:
There even was a take over of Grand Central Station in January 2018 in support of Ahed, with Gold and others chanting for an “Intifada” (sound familiar?):
Ahed eventually was convicted and spent a few months in prison, further raising her international anti-Israel status.
Ahed also issued a call to violence:
And the Tamimi Clan continued to falsely portray themselves as peaceful, Media should stop whitewashing Ahed Tamimi’s terror-supporting family.
So here we are with the call to drink blood and eat skulls.
That has resulted in an arrest for incitement. France News 24 reported:
“Ahed Tamimi was arrested on suspicion of inciting violence and terrorist activities in the town of Nabi Salih” near the city of Ramallah, an army spokesman told AFP.
“Tamimi was transferred to Israeli security forces for further questioning.”
The activist was arrested during an Israeli army raid “aimed at apprehending individuals suspected of being involved in terrorist activities and incitement to hatred” in the north of the West Bank, the spokesman added.
When AFP inquired about the reasons for her arrest, a security source forwarded an Instagram post, which has circulated widely on social media and is attributed to the young activist.
According to the post, written in Arabic and Hebrew, she called for the massacre of Israelis in explicitly violent terms, referring to Hitler.
The activist’s mother, Nariman al-Tamimi, denied she wrote the post.
“There are dozens of (online) pages in Ahed’s name with her photo, with which she has no connection,” Tamimi told AFP.
She added that her husband, Bassem al-Tamimi, was arrested on October 20 and since then there was no news about his whereabouts.
AFP was not immediately able to verify whether the Instagram account in question, which was blocked on Monday morning, actually belongs to Tamimi.
Tamimi became famous at age 14 when she was filmed biting an Israeli soldier to prevent him from arresting her brother who had his arm in a cast.
She has become an icon of the Palestinian cause and a large portrait of her has been painted on the Israeli separation wall with the West Bank in Bethlehem near Jerusalem.
She was arrested in 2017 and held for eight months for slapping two Israeli soldiers in the courtyard of her family home in the West Bank as she asked them to leave.
An image of the arrest, I assume taken by the Israeli police, was circulated.

As was a video, presumably taken by a neighbor:
Israeli forces arrested 22-year-old Palestinian Ahed Tamimi for “inciting terrorism.” The arrest took place during overnight raids in the West Bank. In Dec 2017, Tamimi was detained after she beat and slapped a soldier. The incident was captured on video and went viral. pic.twitter.com/lvXT7ml1ZS

Ahed’s mother Nariman claimed the Instagram account was not Ahed’s, but Nariman has a long history of supporting terror, including the attack on American Taylor Force. In any event, it appears the instagram post was real.
I’m seeing Ahed Tamimi fans doubting the authenticity of the story she posted, suggesting that’s not really her IG account.
It is 100% authentic.
ahed_tamimi15 was her official account.
Here is what it looked like before it was taken offline

Dave Lange, who coined the term “Shirley Temper,” is not the least bit sorry for outing Ahed’s Instagram post:
Sounds like a threat to me.
But seriously, remember my name.
I will ALWAYS stand for my beloved people and the Jewish state! https://t.co/PTfu8HhzOK
