Bassem Tamimi, father of "Shirley Temper" and the leader of the weekly rock-throwing protests at Nabi Saleh, is going on a speaking tour of the US - and Amnesty International is one of his sponsors, along with many other anti-Israel organizations who pretend to support "peace."

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.

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.
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.

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.
