Sarah Silverman slammed by Israelis after calling to release Ahed Tamimi

Days of Palestine -

Jewish-American comedian Sarah Silverman is at the centre of a Twitter storm after tweeting in support of detained Palestinian teenager Ahed Tamimi.

It all started on February 16 when Silverman tweeted in support of Ahed Tamimi – the Palestinian teenager who was detained by Israel in December after she was filmed slapping an Israeli soldier. She has since become a global symbol of the Palestinian resistance movement.

Silverman tweeted that “Jews have to stand up EVEN when – ESPECIALLY when – the wrongdoing is BY Jews/the Israeli government.
