with Abby Martin
teleSUR English on Jan 10, 2018
Recently, the struggle for Palestinian human rights gained international attention surrounding a new icon of resistance–16 year old Ahed Tamimi.
While in the West Bank in late 2016, Abby Martin interviewed Ahed Tamimi about her hardships and aspirations living under occupation and it becomes clear why her subjugators are trying to silence her voice. Her brother Waad and father Bassem also talk about their experiences with Israeli soldiers harassing their village and targeting their family.
In this exclusive episode, Abby outlines the Tamimi family’s tragic tale and unending bravery in the fight for justice and equality in Palestine and how the story of their village of Nabi Saleh is emblematic of the Palestinian struggle as a whole.

Hey, just an fyi, the video do not show on my computer. Says, “Hmm, we’re having trouble finding that site.” I use Firefox browser. I have noticed that it’s hard to find Ahed’s videos.
Thanks, KC, however, I just checked both videos and both are working properly. I’m using Firefox, too. Sometimes videos don’t load properly, so try refreshing the page. If you haven’t cleared your cache and cookies lately, try doing that, too.
Thanks for watching the video reports, David.
This is very sad. Beautiful brave girl killed and her family. I have written often. When the lamb become the wolf. Who is the Lamb? Israel had done bad things in the name of war for land. I will do more research and thank you for the information. Many had die. Rachel Corrie story my heart years ago. People don’t see faces unless you and I. Make them see the faces. Keep writing the truth.
Actually she has been jailed, not killed.
Thanks for your comment, John.
This is good. I will write some thoughts tonight about her. If we don’t change our world ASAP. Trump, world powers and greed. They will kill all that is good.
Yes, we could use some big changes in our world today. Keep writing about it. Cheers!
Cheers, back to you.
Thanks, John. 🙂
