Comments on: Bassem Tamimi sentenced to 4 months in Israeli military jail http://972mag.com/bassem-tamimi-sentenced-to-4-months-in-israeli-military-jail/59223/ Independent commentary and news from Israel & Palestine Wed, 23 Jul 2014 14:12:16 +0000 hourly 1 http://wordpress.org/?v=3.8 By: Greg Pollock http://972mag.com/bassem-tamimi-sentenced-to-4-months-in-israeli-military-jail/59223/comment-page-1/#comment-89938 Thu, 08 Nov 2012 05:36:36 +0000 http://972mag.com/?p=59223#comment-89938 “In 1993, as a result of an interrogation by the Israeli Shin Bet, Tamimi was left unconscious for eight days and required surgery for a brain injury.”

If there were true courts in the occupation, the State of Israel might be paying Tamimi much more than a 5000 NIS. There is no way such assault would not be considered a violation of constitutional rights–if they existed. But: no occupation, no rights, only humble submission allowed.

I still have doubts over the wisdom of this civil protest. It seems a dead end, which is what the IDF wants all such to be, in any case.
