Otherwise Occupied

On this seventeenth birthday of Ahed Tamimi (or thereabouts, since accounts seem to differ), consider that the mighty Israeli Defense Forces are terrorised by the slap of a teenage girl.

And consider that her contemporaries in this country have not taken to the streets to demand the vote. They have not chained themselves to railings. They have not thrown themselves in front of horses.

They have been slapping teenage boys such as are conscripted into the IDF; cheer up, lad, you only really become a man when you have had a well-deserved slap from a woman.

But they have not being doing so in that cause. Anyone would think that they had other things to worry about.
