Picture shows Arnold Roth, the father of a 16 year old Jewish killed murdered in the Sbarro bombings along with numerous others dead and injured. He is testifying before a Committee of the US Congress.
Just for the record Ahed Tamimi is a Palestinian girl who belongs to a family of provocateurs, murderers, and terrorists. A family member, Ahlam Tamimi was responsible for the Sbarro restaurant suicide bombing. Another family member Nizar Tamimi helped murder a Jew, Haim Mirachi. In the Sbarro bombing (2001) 15 people were murdered, including seven children, and 130 others were injured.
The perpetrators and their kin were well remunerated for their crime.

So too, 16 year old Ahed Tamimi helps support her family by attacking and demeaning Jewish soldiers. She was filmed dong this several times along with other Palestinian youngsters. She has become something of an international Media Star. Nearly, anywhere else in the world the reaction to her deeds would have been violent, immediate, and vigorous. This applies not just to Germany. Israel has a problem in so far as they do not want to hurt children nor do they hold the young ones fully culpable. Doing something to the children upsets the system and does not look good in the Media. That is the point. The Arabs know this is a weak spot with Israel so they exploit it.
Ariel Sharon was faced with similar problems in Gaza in 1956. In such cases he would apprehend the father of the offenders. If the father could not be found then an uncle, etc. The person would be given the equivalent of 2 days wages, a small canteen of water, and sent across the border to Jordan. The problem ceased almost immediately. Today this may not be possible but with a little imagination the same principle could be applied.
I read of a similar incident concerning the Jews and British during the Mandate. Most Jews from Yemen came to Israel infrom June 1949 to September 1950. There were some who had come before then beginning from ca. the 1890s and onwards. In an autobiography of one of those who was also a Rabbi and had come earlier (in ca. 1940) I read the following: He was on his veranda observing the goings-on in the market which was down below. British soldiers were searching for illicit weapons among the Jewish merchants. They found a rifle and confiscated it. He had heard that the British were merciful, especially towards women. He sent his young wife down to seize the gun which she did. The British soldier, who had the weapon taken from him, looked nonplussed and confounded. The Rabbi then, together with others, approached the two soldiers present and invited both to his house across the road. Together with his neighbors they gave them a very good meal and a bottle of whisky which had been especially sent out for. The soldiers were very happy with the whole arrangement and left wishing the Jews success in gaining their own State.
