Tamimi's "peace" includes slinging rocks at high speed towards the heads of Israeli soldiers. And he supports his own family throwing rocks.
Not only that, but Tamimi - who is related to some of the most notorious terrorists in history - have said explicitly that he is only against more traditional terrorism for strategic reasons, not because it is wrong.
Taking up arms wasn’t, for Bassem, a moral error so much as a strategic one. He and everyone else I spoke with in the village insisted they had the right to armed resistance; they just don’t think it works. Bassem could reel off a list of Nabi Saleh’s accomplishments. Of some — Nabi Saleh, he said, had more advanced degrees than any village — he was simply proud. Others — one of the first military actions after Oslo, the first woman to participate in a suicide attack — involved more complicated emotions.Tamimi himself is proud of them as well, just that he believes that blowing up Jews was not a smart move while Israel is strong enough to defend itself.
In 1993, Bassem told me, his cousin Said Tamimi killed a settler near Ramallah. Eight years later, another villager, Ahlam Tamimi escorted a bomber to a Sbarro pizzeria in Jerusalem. Fifteen people were killed, eight of them minors. Ahlam, who now lives in exile in Jordan, and Said, who is in prison in Israel, remain much-loved in Nabi Saleh.
This person who condones terror, and who actively supprts some forms of violence, is being celebrated by "peace groups" such as Amnesty.
Which speaks volumes.
