No one should have to live under the rule of an occupying army. No one should have to pass through checkpoints on their way to school, watch their family members be shot, or have their homes invaded in the middle of the night. Two weeks ago, 16-year-old Palestinian girl, Ahed Tamimi, couldn’t take it anymore. This time when soldiers came to enter her home, she stood up and pushed back. She screamed and slapped the soldiers.

For the damage Ahed caused to their sense of masculinity, Israel is exacting revenge. Ahed has spent the past week and a half in various Israeli prisons. Most of her time has been in a freezing cold isolation cell with a camera monitoring her every move. Tomorrow as she appears in court, we are demanding of Netanyahu that she be released immediately.

Israeli leaders want extreme punishments for Ahed. Israeli Education Minister Neftali Bennett has said she and her family “should spend the rest of their lives in prison.” Israeli journalist Ben Caspit called for her to be sexually assaulted, saying, “we should exact a price at some other opportunity, in the dark, without witnesses and cameras.Defence Minister Avigdor Liberman said she and her family must “get what they deserve.

The ill-treatment of Palestinian women prisoners, including various forms of sexual violence, is well documented. Now, leaders of Israeli society are publicly declaring that a 16-year-old girl should be raped! Netanyahu must release Ahed Tamimi immediately!

Sign your name below:

To Prime Minister Netanyahu:

We demand the immediate release of Ahed Tamimi. Every young girl has the right to stand up and keep a soldier from entering her home. It is the soldiers who are criminalsnot the women.

Ahed is a 16-year-old Palestinian girl. She is in imminent danger of being abused, humiliated, or worse if we don't get her out fast. Ben Caspit, an Israeli writer, has already called for her rape. Sexual torture by the State of Israel is a vile crime against humanity. We demand the immediate release and safety of Ahed & her family.

    I am under no illusion that this message and other like it will bring any results. Just the same, these messages will tell you that Ahed Tamimi and all Palestinian kids in your prisons have the sympathy and support of millions around the world. The pressure will continue to grow until these young Palestinian prisoners gain their freedom and the freedom of their country

    The treatment of this child is reprehensible. No civilized people should allow it.

    Israel’s illegal occupation, Israel occupation forces trespassing on Palestinian land, raiding sleeping homes in the middle of the night, abducting young, innocent children & illegally imprisoning them in Israeli jails must end immediately. Free Ahed Tamimi & ALL Palestinian children & adults! Israel’s impunity must end immediately.

    A 16-year-old young Palestinian girl challenging seriously the Israeli army? Simply ridiculous!

    Free her immediately and see her resistance as a form of desperate resistance against a brutal occupatiuon power.
