After eight months in prison for having the audacity to protest the brutal Israeli occupation with a childlike slap, Palestinian resistance icon Ahed Tamini, who turned 17 in custody, has been released - though not, it must be noted, really freed. In the long tradition of civility by the region's only "democracy," Israel marked her release by changing its time and location three times to avoid publicity, and arresting three artists painting a tribute mural of Tamini on their Apartheid Wall.
