Jewish-American comedian Sarah Silverman is at the center of a Twitter storm, after tweeting in support ofÂ detained Palestinian teenager Ahed Tamimi.
It all started on February 16, when Silverman tweeted in support of Ahed Tamimi â 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, according to Days of Palestine, that âJews have to stand up EVEN when â ESPECIALLY when â the wrongdoing is BY Jews/the Israeli government.
