19-Dec-17: Uncovering some of Nabi Saleh's hideous buried secrets

There's suddenly wide interest in the village of Nabi Saleh and the malevolent Tamimi clan who live there after a series of events during the past few days. 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.

There's much we want to say. Here below is an extract of a post we published two years ago on matters that even interested people are unlikely to know. That post is "01-Sep-15: A tale of two villages: one devoted to non-violence, another that actually exists".

Via Legal Insurrection
Those who see only giants and heroes in that hateful little Palestinian Arab town [Nabi Saleh] probably share the view, typical of its kind, that asserts
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. 

But this past weekend, we found the original Arabic text as it had appeared on Wikipedia in May 2013. We saved the original Arabic text to here, and a partial English translation to here. They are archived now thanks to the wonders of the Internet, and safe (we think) from the destructive attentions of those who feel compelled to re-invent the past.

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:

They performed plays, patriotic and comic, and markets were set up in the village squares. Palestinian and various institutions on this season and sponsored annually.

The translation was done by machine and yes, there are lots of mistakes. But it's not hard to get the sense they wanted to convey. You can probably see that the focus on a warrior past doesn't fit all that wonderfully well with the more recent efforts to depict Nabi Saleh as a bastion of non-violent "resistance". Which is probably why all of the text above has been erased from where it origiinally appeared.
