Worker's Romania Association denounces the Israeli military court's decision to convict Ahed Tamimi and her mother.
On Wednesday, March 21, the Israeli military court in Offer condemned Ahed Tamimi and her
mother to eight months in prison and a fine of $ 1,500 each. Their conviction was based on
extortion, "either you plead guilty and you stay jailed for a few months, or you plead innocent
and we put you in prison for 10 years."
Palestinian militants are “guilty” only because they defend their people's right to live free. Ahed
Tamimi was arrested, imprisoned and convicted because she stood as another Palestinian
child with the sling against the Israeli occupation tanks. Ahed Tamimi was convicted by Israel
because she resisted.
Workers around the world convict the barbarity of imperialism that imprisons and kills young
children. Tamimi's conviction is another reason to strengthen Solidarity of Workers for the
liberation of Palestine, the release of all Palestinian political prisoners.
Tamimi's conviction is also revealing the role of the EU, as well as various forces and
organisations that, in support of Israel's vengeance, spoke of "proportionality to punishments
by Israel". What proportionality exists between the armed soldier and the girl who defends her
This is the "peace" and the "justice" of the the contemporary world. Poverty, oppression, imprisonment andmurder of young children.
