Nabi Saleh near Ramallah in the West Bank is a popular destination for international activists who want to contribute to the Pallywood industry. Clashes with the IDF are almost guaranteed during the weekly protests in the village.
While almost everyone in Nabi Saleh is a member of the Tamimi clan, Bassem Tamimi and his photogenic family became a symbol of the “Palestinian struggle”.
While claiming that their protests are non violent in an interview for a 2013 New York Times Magazine article he said “We see our stones as our message,” “Our sign is the stone.”.
Just a few example from the results of those messages Tamimi is talking about:
In an interview published in early May 2011 on the website The Electronic Intifada, Bassem Tamimi is very proud of the terrorists his village produces “This village has a long history of resistance. It is part our culture. We have had 18 martyrs since 1967. Most of our youth are taken away to prison. I have been arrested ten times and placed under administrative detention.”
Tamimi as well declared: “If there is a third intifada … we want to be the ones who started it.”
The second “Palestinian” Intifada took the life of thousands Israelis and “Palestinians”.
The image of the Tamimis presented is that they are courageous activists fighting for a just cause without resorting to violence. Organizers of Bassem Tamimi’s U.S. speaking tour describe him as “an internationally recognized Palestinian human rights activist from the West Bank farming village of Nabi Selah, where weekly nonviolent demonstrations are held in opposition to illegal Israeli settlement construction and military occupation.”
Mr. Tamimi does not hide his hate to Jews, and spreads the famous anti Semitic blood label conspiracy.
The Tamimis have never made a secret of their believe that the Palestinians have “the right to armed resistance,” and they have consistently refused “to forswear bloodshed” or condemn terrorism. Tamimi family terrorists members “remain much-loved” in Nabi Saleh—including Ahlam Tamimi, the unrepentant mastermind of the 2001 Sbarro pizzeria bombing in Jerusalem that killed 15 civilians, including eight children and a pregnant woman, and wounded 130 other people.
One of the most disturbing examples of Ahlam’s continuing popularity was provided by Bassem Tamimi’s wife. Nariman shared Facebook posts from a “friend” who goes by an Arabic pseudonym that translates to “Princess of the Free.” Both the profile picture and the cover picture displayed by the “Princess of the Free” at the time of this writing show Izz al-Din Shuheil al-Masri, the terrorist who exploded himself in the crowded pizzeria.
The Princess of the Free posted a picture and “poem” that was “liked” by 132 people, including Nariman Tamimi, and that is signed at the bottom left corner: “The freed (prisoner) journalist Ahlam Tamimi.” The chilling “poem” Nariman Tamimi “liked” includes unmistakable allusions to the Sbarro bombing and an equally unmistakable call to commit terror attacks:
Fire was lit in the body / Don’t just stand by perplexed / Remember the day the restaurant burned / Remember the day that the roof flew away / What prevents honor from returning? / What prevents the rebels from laughing? / Try and move forward / Try and plan / Try and carry out / Prepare the mix / Take the axe / What’s the plan? / Believe me, with your hands only / You will cause a heart attack for the enemy.
As well, Nariman Tamimi shared a post in which the Princess of the Free provided a blueprint for the wave of ostensibly unorganized “lone wolf” terror attacks that started to spread across Israel in early October 2015.
Bassem Tamimi, his wife Nariman, and their daughter Ahed, as well as Bilal and Manal Tamimi, who are part of the Tamimi media team, are all Facebook friends of the Princess of the Free. This Facebook page can be is in fact Ahlam Tamimi herself. Nariman Tamimi shared a Facebook post rejecting the “Zionist” designation of the Sbarro massacre mastermind and three other notorious female terrorists as such, and insisting that the four women should instead be described as “rebels.” Together these “rebels” killed more than 50 Israeli civilians—including many children—and wounded hundreds.
In an interview to Israeli news site Nariman Tamimi justified the Sbarro massacre as “an integral part” saying “everyone fights in the manner in which he believes. There is armed uprising, and there is popular uprising. I support every form of uprising.”
A particularly graphic example is a post she shared on October 14, providing “a map of the spots that have to be targeted in the filthy body of the Israeli soldier.”
Manal Tamimi does not hide her call to the terror intifada as well
in the Nabi Saleh solidarity website she said “We are demonstrating against settlements. So this could become something big,” she said. “Like a third intifada.”
Her tweet from October 2014:
In August of this 2014, she tweeted: “I do hate Israel, i do hate zionisim, i wish a third Intefada coming soon and people rais up and kills all these zionist settlers everywhere.” (this tweet was removed later)
Her tweet after Eitam Henkin, and his wife Na’ama, were shot by a Palestinian terrorist their 4 children were saved as they were silent and were unnoticed by the murderers.
With the escalation of terror attacks,Manal Tamimi’s Twitter had countless tweets praising the perpetrators of attacks and calling for more violence.
