She's become a protest icon and new symbol of Palestinian resistance. It would certainly be far better for her to simply be a child, but for so many Palestinian children this is not an option afforded to them by the inhuman relaities of Israeli settler colonialism and apartheid.

From a recent interview with her father: “Our family and entire village have always resisted the occupation. That Ahed grew up in this environment and participated in our weekly marches against the wall and settlements has helped her become fearless.
