Saying Ahed Tamimi And Alkobi In The Same Sentence Should Upset Your Stomach - by Sheri Oz

...Another difference between Ahed Tamimi and Yifat Alkobi is that the Tamimi family is well known for its terrorist connections and loving aunt, Ahlam, was responsible for the Sbarro pizza place bombing and proud of having killed children. Ahed openly supports murdering Jews. The Alkobi family, on the other hand, has no connections with terrorists and they are working for the survival of the Jewish community in a place where Jews have always lived (except when Hebron was under Jordanian occupation).

“What Jewish monster,” those at Haaretz asked themselves, “can we use to show how racist Israel is and make a better case for Ahed?”

We need someone photogenic like Ahed Tamimi so that their photos can be side-by-side. We want to show the contrast between people like Tamimi — legitimate freedom fighters — versus Jews — racist occupiers/colonialists who need to be forced to show justice toward the poor downtrodden Palestinian Arabs.
I can just imagine the excitement on the floor of the Haaretz news room (if such things still exist in our digital world) as someone shouts out:

I have it! Yifat Alkobi! Use her picture!

The older staff scratch their heads, trying to remember who Yifat Alkobi is. Perhaps a bell even rings softly in the back recesses of their brains for some of them, telling them that yes, they have heard that name somewhere. The younger ones don’t even bother scratching their heads because they know they have never heard of her.

Who is that?
