When Israel locked up Ahed Tamimi for slapping a soldier last year, it hoped to finally silence the teenage Palestinian activist.Less than three months after walking out of prison, Tamimi is on a victory tour, crisscrossing Europe and the Middle East as a superstar of the campaign against Israeli occupation.The VIP reception has dismayed Israeli officials and is prompting some to ask if Israel mishandled the case. Tamimi gained international attention last year when she confronted an Israeli soldier in front of her home in the occupied West Bank village of Nabi Saleh.Tamimi's extended family has long been on Israel's radar screen.Among Palestinians, they are seen as brave heroes standing up to Israel.In the video, Tamimi and her cousin, Nour, walk toward the two soldiers standing on the property of the Tamimi family.Tamimi is reflective of changing Palestinian sentiment.Tamimi could continue to frustrate the Israelis for many years to come.
