The funerals of Naama Henkin and her husband Eitam, an Israeli couple in their thirties who were shot to death while driving home last night (Thursday night) with their four children (four months to nine years old), are underway as we write these words.
They are happening while a highly successful apologist for precisely yesterday's kind of violent, hateful terror acts that took the Henkins' lives is touring the United States on a roadshow inspired, sponsored and principally executed by Amnesty International. His name is Bassem Tamimi. We have written about him several times in the course of the past month.
Here is our translation of a Hebrew-language interview published a month ago. In it, Nariman Tamimi, Bassem's wife and frequent "activism" and "resistance" partner as well as being the mother of the precocious fist-in-the-soldier's-face, teeth-clamped-into-the-soldier's-arm Shirley Temper, reveals her not-so-nuanced attitude to murder. She throws light as well on the role murder plays in her town's (more precisely, the Tamimi clan's) media-rich 'struggle'.
As far as we know, no one else has published an English version, so we would be glad to know it is getting some exposure.
