Send Ahed Tamimi Love and Solidarity on Her Birthday!

The latest news about Ahed Tamimi's detention by Israel is horrific. Israel is refusing to release her on bail pending trial. Not only this, but the court proceedings against her will begin on January 31, the day of her 17th birthday. Rather than celebrating with family and friends, eating cake, and having a party, Ahed will spend her birthday in a military courtroom. She will sleep that night in a prison cell.

Sign the birthday card to Ahed and write a personal message of love and support. We will have the card and your messages delivered to Ahed in prison.

You can also download, print and post this card to: Ahed Tamimi, HaSharon Prison, Even Yehuda, P.O. Box 7, 40 330 Israel.


Dear Ahed,

We are sending love and solidarity to you on your 17th birthday.

Most teenage girls mark their 17th year with friends and family, parties and celebrations. But the occupation has snatched this right of passage away from you by arresting you in your own home in the middle of the night and holding you in military detention.

Now you face a military court trial on your special day.

We send love and support to you today and every day. We are inspired by your courage in the face of injustice. As you spend your 17th birthday behind bars, we will carry on your struggle for freedom.

Sincerely,

    Dear Ahed. My best wishes for your 17th year. If I may quote an American song:

    Every year on all of our birthdays/Three gifts we’ve got to promise/That we’re going to give you today/We’ll get one year wiser/And we’ll spin our web like a healthy spider/And get our Freedom Fighters out of jail./So Happy Birthday child of such sorrow/Are you wondering what to do about tomorrow?/Then there’s one more present/But you’ve had it all along/And that’s the courage to keep on singing Freedom Songs!

    It is hard to find the right words. I can only say that I have so much respect for you. Thank you for showing integrity and bravery in the face of bitterness and cowardice. It can sometimes be hard to find good in this world of tyranny but people like you prove that good does exist. I hope with all my heart, that you, and your people overcome this dark time and are able to find peace again. Happy Birthday Ahed. We are all with you in spirit.

    Happy Birthday Ahed! You are an inspiration to us all. I do hope you will not have spent your 17th birthday in jail in vain. My thoughts are with you and all the Palestinian children wrongly incarcerated. Stay strong. You are not and never will be alone. Nearly 1, 500 000 people have signed a petition asking for your release as well as the other children. With lots of love and best solidarity wishes.
