Israeli Knesset Member: Palestinian Teen Ahed Tamimi 'Should Have Gotten a Bullet, at Least in the Knee'

Ahed Tamimi, 17, is serving an eight-month prison sentence after she was filmed slapping an Israeli soldier. Ahed Tamimi, the Palestinian teenager famed for slapping an Israeli soldier on camera, should have been shot, at least in the knee.

 Deputy Knesset Speaker Bezalel Smotrich (Habayit Hayehudi) wrote on Twitter Saturday. “In my opinion, she should have gotten a bullet, at least in the kneecap,” he wrote. “That would have put her under house arrest for the rest of her life.” He was responding to journalist Yinon Magal, who had reposted the footage of Tamimi slapping the soldier along with the text, “I’m watching this clip again and am so glad that Tamimi is still in jail. Sometimes, it’s good that the mills of justice grind slowly.”

 Tamimi, 17, was arrested and charged soon after the incident took place last December. In March, she was convicted for slapping an Israeli soldier, incitement and interfering with a soldier. She was sentenced to eight months in prison plus a fine of 5,000 shekels ($1,400). Tamimi’s mother Nariman and cousin Nur were also convicted in slapping incident.

Nariman Tamimi, who shot the video, was sentenced to eight months in prison and a 6,000-shekel fine for incitement, abetting an assault and interfering with a soldier. Nur, who also slapped the soldier, was given a five-month suspended sentence and fined 2,000 shekels. In the original indictment, Ahed Tamimi was also charged with several other charges, including throwing stones on various occasions.Israeli Knesset Member: Palestinian Teen Ahed Tamimi 'Should Have Gotten a Bullet, at Least in the Knee'!!
