Awad Tamimi attempting to provoke an Israeli soldier.

Awad Tamimi, a thirteen year old Palestinian Arab girl, found internet fame when a video of her cursing at and kicking IDF soldiers was posted on YouTube. Today, the Turkish news agency “Anatolia” reported that “the brave Palestinian girl” and her mother met Prime Minister Recep Tayyip Erdogan of Turkey at a hotel in Istanbul, where they had a short conversation. Erdogan gave some gifts to her family, and the two posed for photographs , before eating a meal together. “I give thanks to Prime Minister Erdogan for his hospitality—and his support for Palestine” she said.

Tamimi came to Turkey last week to receive an award from the Istanbul City Council for “courage”. She said she waved her fist in the face of Israeli soldiers as a way to “liberate Palestine”. She told reporters that she intends to study law as a way to fight for the “Palestinian cause.”

Israeli-Turkish relations have deteriorated under the Islamist Erdogan, who has accused Israel of genocide, and described the country as “the main threat to regional peace” and “a terrorist state, which savagely massacres innocent children”. Erdogan told the Eurasian Islamic Council that “Those who speak of Muslims and terror side by side are turning a blind eye when Muslims are massacred en masse”. In recent months, Turkey has blocked Israel’s participation in NATO summits.

    Ask the same girl to do something similar to a Muslim soldier in a Muslim controlled Gaza ….. we all know what will happen to her…. what this image shows in reality is that the Israel army abides in the values of respect to human life shared by the rest of western countries.

  • Yes, sometimes it takes a young person to set the politicians on the correct path. More power to her.

    With this political properties, Erdogan has lost its chance for membership of the EU. Such truth Muslims have lost their right to play with the democracy of others. His behavior reflects the characteristics of some of his countrymen who are employed as guest workers in Europe.
    The Turkey is no EU country and no Arab country. The Israel blockade to the declared he has signaled where his qualitative skills are finding.
