Just a Normal Day in Rami Levy

Monday, February 29th, 2016

I know it looks scary… big K-9 dog, masked and heavily armed IDF soldiers, and inside a Rami Levy (Gush Etzion) supermarket to top it all off.

It looks like something serious just happened.

But in reality, it’s just a typical Monday.

The soldiers came in to check the store during their patrol and get a drink, while the Jewish and Arab employees helped them out.

Rami Levy Security Upgrade

Sunday, February 21st, 2016

The Rami Levy supermarket chain has always been a symbol of coexistence – of Jews and Arabs working and shopping together. But not everyone (on the Arab side) likes that idea.

When the various Rami Levy supermarkets began becoming repeated target for Arab terrorists, Rami Levy took initial steps to increase customer safety, from removing all the knives off the shelves to (for a while) pre-cutting all the chickens and meat, so there were no knives in the butcher section (there’s a couple of knives back there now).

Besides the guard at the entrance, there are also IDF soldiers in the parking lots.

But, despite all that, the terrorist still managed to get in with a knife last week to stab and kill a Jewish man.

Today, Rami Levy is installing a full size metal detector at the entrance to the Rami Levy in Sha’ar Binymanin.

Will that be security enough? Or is coexistence no longer on the table?

A Terrorist Murder by Arabs but US Admin ‘Condemns’ ‘Attack’ ‘That Resulted in Death’

Friday, February 19th, 2016

Why is it that this U.S. Administration, including its leader, President Barack Obama, refers to the intentional murder of Jews in the most remote and passive of terms? No one murders Jews: an attack happens and later the unfortunate Jew dies.

No Jews are targeted because they are Jews:  the victims – random ones, of course – just happen to be Jews.

And it’s gotten worse. Now the Israeli Jews, when they happen to die of some random attack, are not even Jews, but Israelis, unless they happen to live beyond the 1949 Armistice Line (the invisible Green Line) in which case they are neither Jew nor Israeli, but simply the maligned “settler” or, sometimes, only referred to as the other half of their dual nationality, such as American – as if they have no connection at all to the Jewish people or Israel, and as if those connections had nothing to do with their random death.

Take, just as the latest example, yesterday’s stabbing and murder.

Tuvia Weissman, 21, and his wife Yael and four month old daughter Netta are from Ma’ale Mikhmas, just a few miles northeast of Jerusalem. The three were shopping on Thursday, Feb. 18, in a grocery store outside of – and on the wrong side of, according to this administration – Jerusalem.

The Weissmans were shopping in the local Rami Levy, a string of Israeli supermarkets which caters to both Israelis and Arabs. These stores are amongst the few and certainly best examples of real-life co-existence – not merely the wish emblazoned on countless bumper-stickers and decals, sported mostly by white, especially Jewish, liberal Americans who have never met, let alone shopped next to, a Palestinian Arab.

This Rami Levy is located in Sha’ar Binyamin. All of a sudden Weissman heard a commotion. He knew what was happening. A pigua, a terrorist attack, was taking place, and Weissman, although unarmed, ran to help.

As his wife and child waited for his return, Weissman was stabbed with such force in the upper body by one of the two teenage Palestinian Arab terrorists from Ramallah, that he died. The terrorist murdered him. Another Jewish man, 36, was also stabbed in the attack.

That is what happened.

But here’s what the official statement from the administration says about the Palestinian Arabs’ terrorist attack and murder: an attack happened in the West Bank and an American died as the result.

Hard to believe?

Here’s the actual language issued by Deputy State Department Spokeperson Mark C. Toner on Friday, Feb. 19:

We condemn in the strongest possible terms the attack that took place yesterday in the West Bank that resulted in the death of U.S. citizen Tuvya Weisman. There is no justification for terrorism. This horrific incident again underscores the need for all sides to reject violence, and urgently take steps to restore calm, reduce tensions, and bring an immediate end to the violence.

We extend our deepest condolences to his family and friends, and stand ready to provide all appropriate consular assistance. Privacy considerations prevent us from commenting further.

Not in Israel, but some other place — the West Bank. Not an Israeli or a Jew, but only an American. There is no Arab violence; instead, “all sides” need to reject violence, as if Weissman and his family and the other Jewish shoppers in that grocery store were just as guilty of violence as the Arab terrorist murderer. Both sides should “take steps to restore calm” and “reduce tensions” and “bring an immediate end to the violence.”  Both sides equally.

For you American readers, be advised: your tax dollars were at work in the construction of Toner’s statement.

Oh, and that privacy considerations language? Not so much. All the Israeli papers ran the names of the victim and his family once his family had been notified, all of which happened on Thursday.

So here’s our deepest condolences for the death of humanity in the alleged condolence note about a random attack on a random American in a random place.

21-Year-Old Father Stabbed to Death in Front of Wife and Baby North of Jerusalem

Friday, February 19th, 2016

by Michael Bachner A deadly stabbing attack was carried out by two Palestinian terrorists at an Israeli supermarket in the Binyamin Region on Thursday, February 18, killing Tuvia Yanai Weissman, a 21-year-old resident of the Jewish community of Michmash.

Weissman will be laid to rest on Friday morning at 8 am at the Mount Herzl military cemetery in Jerusalem.

According to a police spokesperson, shortly before 5:00 PM two 14-year-old Palestinians entered the supermarket in the Shaar Binyamin industrial zone and walked around for 20 minutes before stabbing two Israeli men, one of whom suffered critical wounds and died in hospital. Civilians prevented the terrorists from escaping by using shopping carts until the terrorists were shot by two armed civilians at the scene.

“The store was packed with people when I suddenly heard people screaming,” an eyewitness at the scene told Tazpit Press Service (TPS). “Someone was shouting ‘what are you doing?’ and then I heard the gunshots. When people were running away I heard babies and women crying, it was frantic.”

According to Magen David Adom (MDA), two civilians were wounded in the incident. One of them, 21-year-old Weissman, was critically wounded after suffering stab wounds to his neck. He was treated at the scene and transported, unconscious, to Shaare Zedek Hospital in Jerusalem where he later succumbed to his wounds.

The second victim, 36-year-old Avi Avital, resident of the nearby Jewish community of Tel Zion, suffered moderate stab wounds in the back and was transported fully conscious to Hadassah Medical Center on Mount Scopus in Jerusalem. At least 10 other people at the scene suffered from shock, including a pregnant woman.

Yanai Weissman is survived by his wife Yael and their 4-month-old baby daughter, both of whom were present at the scene of the deadly attack.

Israel’s President Reuven Rivlin commented: “A man returns from his day at work, stops to buy groceries for the Sabbath, and is taken away forever by murderous villains. We will stand strong and respond firmly to restore calm and normality to the lives of our citizens everywhere. We will defeat terrorism,” he said.

“At this time of anguish and heartache, I wish to offer comfort to the bereaved family, and my prayers for the quick recovery of the wounded,” added Rivlin.

“We are deeply saddened by the murder of Yanai, a resident of Michmash,” Avi Roeh, Head of the Binyamin Regional Council told TPS. “The pain and sorrow are huge but we will not be broken. The People of Israel has faced many tough times during history and always coped with them and grew stronger. To all those who try to harm us, I want to say that we are determined and strong and that we will win.”

The two wounded terrorists, identified as Iham Sabah and Omar al-Rimawi from the Palestinian Authority village of Beitunia near Ramallah, were treated at the scene and transported to Hadassah Ein Kerem Medical Center in Jerusalem. Sabah was later pronounced dead by the hospital, while al-Rimawi was reported to be in moderate to serious condition.

The Shaar Binyamin industrial zone is a joint shopping and business area where both Jews and Palestinians coexisted together peacefully until today. The IDF announced that following the attack, Arabs from the Palestinian Authority will not be allowed into the industrial zone until Sunday. The supermarket was ordered to be shut down following the security guards’ failure to prevent the entry of the two knife-wielding terrorists.
