Ahed Tamimi Accidentally Shows How Humane Israel Is

Palestinian national icon Ahed Tamimi (nicknamed “Shirley Temper”) was freed after serving an eight-month sentence in Israeli prison for recording herself punching, kicking, and slapping two Israeli soldiers. The incident was streamed live by her mother, who was also released by Israeli authorities.

“It’s hard to put my experience into words. I can’t even explain how oppressed I felt while I was there,” said Tamimi after being freed. “I’m glad I ended up there for my beliefs, and I’m ready to go to prison 100 more times if it serves the good of my country.”

How on earth did Tamimi survive those long oppressive months in an Israeli prison? Surely this modern-day Jean Valjean has a harrowing tale of how she displayed unparalleled resilience in the face of adversity.

“There were many things I did there,” said Tamimi. “I took the law course [offered by the prison], studying for high school. I was reading books. We were singing, we were even making group breakfast, every room brings their own stuff and we have breakfast together outside. Also having lunch together most of the time.” When Tamimi wasn’t “singing and dancing,” she was watching TV.

In the interests of the environment we should always try to re-cycle everything, especially jokes. You know that makes sense! You may find some historical stuff here, but this does not really matter as humor is fairly timeless.
