Broadly, part of Vice Media, calls itself “a website and digital video channel devoted to representing the multiplicity of women’s experiences. Through original reporting and documentary film, we provide a sustained focus on the issues that matter most to women.” Evidently, “representing the multiplicity of women’s experiences” involves feting female terrorists:

More from Broadly:
Described as the “Rosa Parks of Palestine” by Amnesty International and Al-Jazeera, 17-year-old Ahed has become an icon of popular resistance and the new face of a young, defiant Palestinian generation. Her high-profile arrest caused an outcry, with over 48,000 people signing petition calling for her release. After being tried for aggravated assault, alongside 11 other charges, Tamimi accepted a plea deal on March 21, and will serve an eight-month prison sentence and pay a 5,000 shekel fine ($1,400).
Despite being only 17, Ahed’s activism dates back many years. In 2012, she was filmed confronting Israeli troops that were trying to arrest her brother. Ahed comes from a family well-known for protesting: her cousin is Janna Jihad, the so-called youngest journalist in Palestine, and her parents Bassem and Nariman are prominent grassroots activists who have regularly organised protests against Israeli settlement construction in the West Bank. The Tamimi family live in the village of Nabi Saleh, known for its regular protests, which Ahed began joining at just seven years old.
Yeah, let’s talk about her family of “grassroots activists,” shall we?
From a family of terrorists.

How many people did her family murder?
— Andrew Love (@VictoryInLove) May 15, 2018
Her claim to fame is she comes from a family of cold blooded murderers.

Hey guys. Guys. Just a tip – just in case you couldn't be bothered doing any of that boring "journalism" stuff this time around:
Her family blew up a Sbarro and killled fifteen people, including seven innocent children.
She believes they are heroes.
Just so you know, guys.

Whose family killed innocent people with a bomb. Your position on her young defiant voice is a pathetic uninformed and typical of the liberal mentality!
— Brian Kiser (@BrianKiser412) May 15, 2018
You mention that "Ahed comes from a family well known for protesting" and you fail to mention they were accused/found guilty of a terrorist bombing of a restaurant in which 15 people were killed? Where is your journalistic integrity?

Same place as Ahed Tamimi’s respect for human life:
Is this the kid who was filmed cursing at and hitting soldiers?
— Cruce † (@ememesi) May 15, 2018
Isn’t she precious? Look at her all defiant even after her family killed innocent women and children. God bless her rockhard heart.

Why 👏🏼 Do 👏🏼 You 👏🏼 Support 👏🏼 Terrorists?

She is a terrorist plain and simple. Do not glorify anything she does….

If your idea of ‘defiance’ is murder then you might want to re-evaluate things. #GetAClue

It’s either willful blindness or approval of evil. Plain old ignorance seems less and less likely. https://t.co/xk4WGKDTgk
