Video Captures Palestinian Girl Attempting to Provoke IDF (VIDEO)

A screenshot from the video.

A video shot at a Friday protest in the village of Nabi Salih, in the central West Bank, captured a striking image: that of a young Palestinian girl attempting to provoke Israeli soldiers. Soon thereafter the girl is joined by many other seemingly young-looking people from the village.

A senior IDF source told Ynet that intelligence indicates that pro-Palestinian activists pay Palestinian children from Nabi Salih and other nearby villages to confront the soldiers. “The soldiers are briefed on the fact that these protests are staged for the sake of provocation, so that they could be filmed acting violently and so that those videos could be distributed worldwide in an effort to harm the IDF’s image,” the officer said.

According to Ynet, Abir Kubati, spokesperson of the popular protest coordination committee, said: “I don’t understand what the army wants – they send soldiers into a Palestinian village and then dare to depict themselves as victims because the residents don’t welcome them.”

“You’re a traitor! I know you speak Arabic. Our soldiers are stronger than you! I’ll smash your head,” the 10-year-old girl is heard in the video screaming at the soldier in Arabic, according to a translation provided by Ynet.

A video of the incident can be viewed below.

  • Children are holy gifts from God. Each is given a pure and innocent soul. The parents of these unhappy children are guilty of a profound and ugly sin. Is this not the worse display of child abuse one can encounter? The ruination of a sweet and innocent soul with hate, anger, and murderous speech is child abuse. Shame on any parent that allows this kind of hate to be even a small part of any child’s life.

    You iz silly bro. You meant the loony left and the Arabs.

    What the hell are the adults thinking to allow these kids to act like that, well done to the actual ADULTS in uniform for showing such restraint, as a parent I would have slapped these kids backsides for putting themselves in a position of potential danger should the soldiers have decided enough was enough, then I would have slapped their parents for letting them act like hooligans.

    Notice all those cameras. WOW! Great education going on over there…

  • daniela lowinger

    I wonder if those girls would have screamed and done the same thing to any Palestinian man, if he would not have smacked them right away.
    Those are the ones that want us to give them a country??? to have those kind of people as neighbors?..

    • Devora Goldhair

      I can’t believe I know someone who posted a comment on one of these sites. Hahahaha, hi Daniella!

  • I wonder how a “soldier” of the PLO or any other Islamic nation would react if some Jewish children were yelling and pushing at them? I’m sure not with the restaint that can be seen in this video. May Hashem continue to be our defense and protect our IDF soldiers.

  • PEACE….
    We Israel are attacked on 2 fronts at the same time.
    The xtians and the arabs.

    Politicians preach peace…
    Arabs practice intimidation and war.

    CAN YOU BE AS SILENT AND BRAVEAS OUR IDF SHOW TO BE IN THIS VIDEO?

    why are the arabs permitted to continue to provoc us?

    silence to the JEWS have proven to be death sentences.

At the heart of the one-act play is Tony, a Jewish and gay Palestinian sympathizer who expresses strong anti-Israel sentiments when the play begins and at one point even sides with a Palestinian terrorist who holds his captive. Tony, who is also an [...]

    On 75th Anniversary, Looking at the Jewish Influence on Gone With the Wind

    JNS.org – The 75th anniversary of the premiere of “Gone with the Wind” on Dec. 15 presents an opportunity to examine the Jewish influence on one of the most popular films of all time. That influence starts with the American Civil War epic’s famed producer, David O. Selznick. Adjusted for inflation, “Gone with the Wind” remains the highest-grossing movie ever made. It earned the 1939 Academy Award for Best Picture, the same honor another Selznick film, “Rebecca,” garnered in 1940. Selznick [...]

    ‘Sheriff of Mars’ Unveils Endearing Life of Jewish Music Star Hidden in the Fields of France

    JNS.org – It was an era of steel strings, guitar heroes, and storytellers—high on heroin, rebellious. Outlaw country music, the hallmark of Nashville’s powerful and angry music scene of the 1970s, was the brew of greats such as Johnny Cash, Willie Nelson, and Townes Van Zandt. But there is another, little-known music hero of that era: Daniel Antopolsky. A Jewish lad from Augusta, Ga.—the son of immigrants who settled in the south and ran a hardware store on Main Street—the [...]

On the 12th of May, the Zionist Executive met to decide what to do. Moshe Sharrett had just returned [...]
