There's a reason she has such stage presence.
The Tamimi clan child who featured in the staged clash ["02-Sep-15: Lights, action, camera, bite: Scenes from a cognitive war"] in a town a little north of Jerusalem ten days ago brings years of experience and practice to the role. But her determined parents get a large part of the credit, along with the PA education system via which she is acquiring life skills.
She is a mere ten year old moppet in the pictures below. They come from a YouTube video dated July 2, 2010. It was filmed in Nabi Saleh, the Palestinian Arab town which earned itself a New York Times Magazine cover two and a half years ago. We responded to that cover story here: "17-Mar-13: A little village in the hills, and the monsters it spawns".
