'And if Ahed Tamimi were your daughter?'' Gideon Levy describes in Haaretz the lack of reactions in Israel to the fact that ''a 16 year old girl was kidnapped from her bed at night, handcuffed and arrested for a lengthy period, simply because she slapped the soldier who invaded her home, and slapped the occupation, which deserves far more than slaps?''
''These questions don’t bother anyone,'' he writes. ''Tamimi is a Palestinian, that is to say, a terrorist, and therefore, she doesn’t deserve any feelings of sympathy. Nothing will crack the defensive shield that protects Israelis from feelings of guilt, or at least discomfort, over her outrageous arrest, over the discrimination by the justice system, which would never have paid any attention to her had she been a Jewish settler.
