Extra Security Checks for Rami Levy, Sha'ar Binyamin

Rami Levy has set up metal detectors at the branch in Sha'ar Binyamin, and if I'm not mistaken in Gush Etzion and possibly other places. Even before that there have been guards and the place is fenced off and has security cameras all over.

You'd think that people (the Jewish shoppers) would be happy and cooperative.

But I've observed a lot of people getting nasty and refusing to go through the special gate or to let the guards touch their bags for inspections. And the guards are on edge from the rudeness. It is definitely not pleasant to witness this behavior. Oh, in case you're wondering, yes, I'm talking about the Jewish customers, not the Arabs who wouldn't dare make a fuss.

People wouldn't dare make a fuss about security anyplace else!

Yesterday, on the way to work, when we got to the Sha'ar Binyamin gate, a soldier entered the bus to check. Honestly, people on my bus aren't the problem. They really should be checking all the cars and passengers.

And don't forget that Rami Levy/Yafiz is the only store in the area with extra guards and security to get in plus plainclothes security. All other stores and malls in Sha'ar Binyamin just rely on the main gate guards. And there are other Arab workers and customers around Sha'ar Binyamin besides those in Rami Levy/Yafiz.

And to remind you that there are Arabs shopping and working all over Israel. There's hardly a mall, store or restaurant without Arab staff/customers. I've been working in Yafiz, Sha'ar Binyamin for over five years, and I don't consider it any more dangerous than any place else.

Wouldn't it be much easier to get rid of the problem, Muslims, instead of turning the whole of Israel into a prison for the Jewish people ?

We have security in Art Galleries and Museums in London. It reassures me a little. Although I am reminded of terror attacks in Israel on the QUEUE waiting to be checked, so I'm wary while waiting. We all have to be
patient and support the system, but I suppose that's not human nature! Shabbat Shalom from London.

Marcel, above commenter, said it all! Simple enough, but not politically correct enough. That's the topsy turvy world - woe, woe, woe.

With present day Israel and world political correctness mindest, no one would dare use the words German or Nazi to identify the enemy during WW II.

This perverse insanity insures our own defeat and explains why Israel is no longer up to defeating Hamas or Hezbollah.

There are arabs all working all over Israel and shopping all over Israel. One can't just "get rid of the problem, Muslims."

The only way to get rid of the Muslim problem will be the messiah who will put an end to religion as we know it today. He will quite easily show that it is a political movement of suppression and not of God. They will certainly whine but so be it.
