The June 28 Facebook post by Palestinian teen Ahed Tamimi who slapped an Israeli soldier was powerful. “The Tamimi family doesn’t accept injustice. My mother Nariman Tamimi informed my brother who participated in the attempts to break up a demonstration by citizens in the streets not to come home. He can either resign [from his security service position] or apologize. Otherwise, my mother will announce she will wash the family hands from having any relations with him.”
Social media shows many of these confrontations between patriotic Palestinian parents confronting their sons who are working for the Palestinian security service and who were filmed violently putting down fellow Palestinian demonstrators.
