“I Would Kick, Kick Her Face, She Would Finish In Hospital”; Israeli Lawmaker Tells About Ahed Tamim
“If I was there, she would finish in the hospital. For sure. Nobody could stop me. I would kick, kick her face, believe me”.

Israeli lawmaker Oren Hazan of the Likud Party said that if he had been one of the soldiers Ahed Tamimi slapped, then she would have landed in the hospital since he would have kicked her in the face.

In a BBC news report titled “Is a slap an act of terror?” about Ahed Tamimi, the 17-year-old Palestinian girl who slapped an Israeli soldier, MK Hazan who is one of the most virulent racists in Israel’s Knesset said:  “If I was there, she would finish in the hospital. For sure. Nobody could stop me. I would kick, kick her face, believe me”.

Certainly, if Hazan was a Palestinian and had made these threats against an Israeli, he would have already have been arrested.

Formerly, Hazan boarded the bus of visitors to Palestinian prisoners in Israel, calling the Palestinian families “dogs”, “human scum” and “beasts”.

Later, Israel apologia outlet ‘Honest Reporting’ went on the offensive against the BBC for interviewing the disgraced, provocative Israeli politician who has a history of extreme and inflammatory remarks, in a piece titled “BBC News Kicks Israel in the Face”.

“Appalling that @oren_haz was given airtime on BBC 2 embarrass Israel. Whatever you think about Ahed Tamimi, stating that you’d kick a 16yr old girl’s face in and land her in the hospital is terrible PR and shame on @BowenBBC 4 selecting him in the first place” editor Simon Plosker tweeted.

Plosker was deservedly countered by Israeli activist Ofer Neiman, who retweeted:

“From an Israeli citizen, Simon, YOU are in cahoots with this Israeli #apartheid political elite. Don’t like what you see in BBC mirror?”

Hazan’s words were close to those of the centrist liberal journalist Ben Caspit, who wrote, “In the case of the girls, we should exact a price at some other opportunity, in the dark, without witnesses and cameras.” he added: “I, for example, if I were to encounter that situation, I would have long ago been in detention until end of procedures”

In 1969, then Israel’s Prime Minister Golda Meir announced in an interview with The Sunday Times that: “There was no such thing as Palestinians. . . They did not exist”.

Israel’s former Defense Minister Yaalon in 2015 promised to keep hurting “Lebanese civilians, to include kids of the family.

However, Hazan on Wednesday was suspended by the Ethics Committee from the Knesset and its committees for six months over a series of sexist, chauvinist and otherwise offensive statements against his colleagues.
