|Via Legal Insurrection|
Typical of the way the affair is being covered in the mainstream media, here's the background as interpreted from London: "Palestinian girl arrested after troops 'slapped' in video" [BBC, today]. Our interest in the town and in the clan stems from the fact that one of the Tamimi women is the self-confessed-but-free murderer of our daughter, Malki.
the village is struggling for humanity, justice, peace and dignity, and... they need their freedom [via a far-left Israeli publication, yesterday]But there are Arabic-language sources that tell us with far greater candor and clarity what really drives Nabi Saleh's Tamimis. Those Arabic texts naturally were never intended to be seen by people like us and those who read our posts. But web tools make them easy to find.
Take for example Wikipedia's Arabic-language entry on Nabi Saleh. As we wrote here on Saturday night, someone doctored the Wikipedia text shortly after we first publicized it. Every reference to the village people's adoration of jihad, martyrdom and death to the Israelis was erased.
That deleted Wikipedia text is the village of Nabi Saleh paying tribute to its own viciously violent true self: to its warriors, to its killers, to its dead fighters, and above all to its favourite daughter, the one who smiles on-camera when she recalls how many innocent Jewish children she blew to pieces in the Sbarro pizzeria, our daughter Malki among them.
Virtually everyone in Nabi Saleh is a member of the Tamimi clan. That includes our daughter's murderer and the murderer's husband who is also her cousin - and also a convicted murder of Jews. And also freed in the catastrophic Shalit Deal [in 2011]. (They now live in Amman, Jordan). And also a hero of those self-proclaimed peace-loving, non-violent villagers.
UPDATE: December 20, 2017: An alert reader (hat-tip ELEA) points out that the JumpShare link above which used to show the English translation of the now-wiped earlier edition of the Arabic Wikipedia page about Nabi Saleh is gone. Since there isn't much time available to us today, the easiest solution for now is to simply copy-paste the Google Translate translation into English of the Wikipedia Arabic text. So here it is, unedited and fresh from the translation machine:
