A Palestinian stabbed a middle-aged Israeli man outside of a grocery store in a West Bank industrial park on Friday afternoon and then fled the scene, police said.This is the same Rami Levy branch that I visited in 2013, where Arabs and Jews work and shop together - and where there (at the time) wasn't even a metal detector at the entrance because there were no threats. And this is in the territories.
The Israeli man, approximately 40 years old, was seriously injured in the attack. He sustained stab wounds to the upper body, and paramedics treated the man on site before taking him to a hospital, the Magen David Adom medical service said.
The army and police quickly began searching the surrounding area for the attacker, the IDF said.
The attack occurred outside the Rami Levy supermarket in Sha’ar Binyamin, an industrial area north of Jerusalem and southeast of Ramallah.
During the interview I did find that there was one bit of discrimination between Jews and Arabs.
The store would give gift baskets to all employees before Purim, but they made sure to replace the wine in the baskets for Jews with a different food for the Muslims.
