Ahed Tamimi, a 13-year-old Palestinian girl who stood up to Israeli soldiers who had
 arrested her brother, was invited to Turkey by the Başakşehir Municipality as a guest
 of honor.
Ahed Tamimi and her mother Neriman Tamimi landed in Turkey yesterday at around two pm,
 arriving to Istanbul's Atatürk Airport on a Royal Jordanian Airlines flight via 
Amman. Thirteen-year-old Tamimi and her mother were greeted by students with flowers 
and waving flags from a 'knowledge center' named after the late Cevdet Kılıçlar, who 
was killed on the Mavi Marmara. While Ahed made the sign of victory to news reporters, 
students had arrived to the airport wearing t-shirts with images of the young girl 
standing up to Israeli soldiers. Expressing how pleased she was to be in Turkey, Ahed 
Tamimi said, "I love Erdoğan very much. I feel very happy to be in Erdoğan's 
homeland." When asked to relay what happened with the Israeli soldiers, Ahed Tamimi 
stated, "I wasn't scared of the Israeli soldiers. I let them feel the Palestinian 
spirit and fear."

 TAMIMI TO RECEIVE AWARD FOR COURAGE While in Turkey, Ahed Tamimi will be the 
recipient of the Hanzala Courage Award handed out by the Başakşehir Municipality and 
will also participate in a panel on Palestine where she will provide a child's 
perspective on the painful events happening in her nation. Ahed Tamimi, whose father 
is already in prison, stood up to Israeli soldiers when they arrested her brother, in 
a display of courage talked about all over the world.

It is something remarkable that kids have such courage and would stand for what is right no matter who is up against them.

I guess this is what is called instincts (fitra) and the more we grow up the more our inhibitions get in the way!
