Ahed Tamimi, the real Wonder Woman? Artist behind historic Che Guevara poster turns his brush to Palestinian teen jailed by Israel
Jim Fitzpatrick, the artist behind the iconic image of Che Guevara, has done it again. The new symbol of resistance and anti-oppression is 17-year-old Palestinian Ahed Tamimi from the occupied West Bank. He hopes to call attention to her plight and wants to see her safe and released from prison.
Michael Oren is currently known for his conspiracy theory that Ahed Tamimi might be a “plant” sent to Nabi Saleh to make Israel look bad. Oren has a history of spouting such theories – and he is just one of many who would rather believe far-fetched fantasies about Palestinians rather than face the truth that Israel has blood on its hands.
How did a 14-year-old Palestinian girl who has never set foot in the open-air prison of Gaza find herself being dumped there by Israeli officials – alone, at night and without her parents being informed? Ghada’s story, like Ahed Tamimi’s and the African refugees’, is the story of the indifference that is created by an occupation machine.
Western media coverage of Ahed Tamimi obscures Israeli violence and occupation, completely missing the point of her nonviolent resistance. See FAIR’s thorough analysis of news reports.
