As a matter of fact, I do support a one-state solution, as do many other right-wingers such as Moshe Arens, Gilad Erdan, etc. I love Moshe Arens ability to communicate a Jewish state, importance of hard-fisted security, and yet at the same time protection for the same time as a Jewish one-state solution that includes Palestinians with equal rights and ejecting those Palestinians who disagree.
32. OMG, but I see in his markets arab guys with israeli girls
Ronen Tzur ,   Israel   (07.29.11)
all the time and they do talk and laugh??? if he did it than this is unforgivable! bigotry is un- acceptable
33. Rami Levy is a racist?
Jerusalem ,   Israel   (07.29.11)
Its other of his branches in Jerusalem I always see Jews and Arabs work together. And Jews and Arabs buy buy together. Rami Levy and the manager of this branch should be prosecuted. Israel is not the place for racism. for that we have the Hamas regim in Gaza. Whoever want to be a racist can go there.
34. We're tired of your racist bullshit!
Salma ,   Palestine   (07.29.11)
take your girls and get the hell out of PALESTINE. Hi Ynet , I'm coming back after the break, i miss you don't you miss me too? ; )
35. i-Store
Yoni ,   Germany   (07.29.11)
I wonder why the i-store employee has not checked Moussas ID before handing over the phone, especially when selling such an expensive and overpriced product.
36. The Koran Says ...
Frankie Littlehammer ,   New Herstal, TX, USA   (07.29.11)
Two times the Koran says Muslim women cannot marry Jewish or Christian men, let alone other non-Muslims, and a large majority of Muslims agree with that rule. So there is nothing wrong for the other side to put some restrictions on Muslim men. Or do Muslims have more rights than others? Isn't that Apartheid then?
37. #29 Lebanon's Disgrace
BEN JABO ,   ISRAEL   (07.29.11)
Learn to read and COMPREHEND, pay particular attention to the last line "The two agreed that every month, Moussa would give B. NIS 200 ($60) in cash to deposit in her father's bank account.” But something went wrong along the way" Back to school you go, this time take a reading comprehension course You may now partake of your Humble Pie Back to school you go, this time take a reading comprehension course

BEN JABO ,   ISRAEL   (07.29.11)
Unfortunately, those wonderful stories are the exceptions, not the rule According to the last polls I ran across the vast majority of Arabs want the land Judenrein Factually speaking, "Settlers" which is an inappropriate term, since they are Jews living in their own homeland, have a lousy relationship with their Arabs neighbors, as is evidenced by all the coverage that those situations attract, it's in the new all the time Surely , you remember the family of five that were killed in their beds by their lousy neighbors
39. #34 Salma - What is Palestine ?
BEN JABO ,   ISRAEL   (07.29.11)
It's not a country, never was, it never had a Capital City, it never had rulers of its own, as a matter of fact it never had any money it could call its own, no artifacts, no nada I sent you a series of questions, that would have given you the ability to prove that Palestine was yours, you ran and hid, knowing full well, even if you lied more than you usually do, you still could prove it was yours Now, be a dear, pack your baggage and head home to wherever the hell you came from I hadn't realized that girls that were employed in horizontal duties were given lunch breaks
40. #35 Yoni - The girl bought it
BEN JABO ,   ISRAEL   (07.29.11)
using her Fathers card, which was valid since enough money was in the account She then gave it to Mousa The real question is why did her father leave the card just laying around loose, it should have been in his wallet
41. Does anyone out there have any
BEN JABO ,   ISRAEL   (07.29.11)
statistics of how many Jews are emloyed in Arab Supermarkets ? I would wager it's a heck of lot less than Arabs employed in Jewish Supermarkets That's what I would call real discrimiantion, in this case they caught a couple of thieves & connivers
42. She liked him a lot. A story with sad ending.
Michael ,   California, USA   (07.29.11)
He was a good friend, at work and beyond. She was a trusted friend. Good people are like this everywhere in the world. It occurred to her, I am sure, that her father will discover the loan she made to her Arab friend. She relied on her father's open mindedness, but she really should have told her father first. No matter how you look at this story, the bad and mean person is the store chain owner. We can understand father's disappointment with what her daughter has done, and we can understand why the Arab worker ran away to Jordan. This is a sad story, thank you for bringing it out Ynet. In a way, it is material for opponents of racism. Count me in as an opponent to both Jewish and Arab racism.
43. Ben Jabo
Charles ,   Petach Tikva   (07.29.11)
When I pay with MY credit card , more than ounce i was asked my ID card and even for sums less than 200 ILS . A credit card gives you credit untill a certain sum , not important if you have money or not on your account . It's important to have money on your account the day you have to pay the bank [ often the 2nd of the following month. ] A father can leave his card at home without problems , only dishonest people think the contrary
44. Most Jews suffer from the Stockholm syndrome.
Yitzi ,   Bet Shemesh, Israel   (07.29.11)
You liberal multiculturalists believe that when the goyim are not killing us or beating our heads in that they are showing mercy and friendship to us. You have elevated the syndrome to the level that we must also seek to love and trust our sworn enemies. We have more reason to be wary of other peoples than any race on earth.

SHE LIKED HIM ALOT' you say.. only to regret after marrying him that she is a slave. OR to be kidnapped to a brothel or to be kidnapped to be his wife with her begging to leave THIS IS A HAPPY ENDING THEY ARE NOT TO CONTACT EACH OTHER AGAIN. one less Jewish woman being used for the arabs
47. #34 - It doesn't matter what you think
Devorah   (07.29.11)
Israel is the one holding the cards. If you don't like it, then go make an ass of yourself elsewhere.
48. the real question is:
me ,   austria   (07.29.11)
Why are iPhones so incredibly expensive in Israel? He should have gone for an Android device.
49. #42 Michael - She liked him so much
BEN JABO ,   ISRAEL   (07.29.11)
She resorted to stealing from her father because of his urgings, that's one hell of a friend, turning an honest girl into a thief, what next, prostitution to satisfy his needs ? The bad and mean person is the one that would encourage her to deceive and steal from her father, not the store owner, who employed what he thought were honest persons Any store owner, when he is made aware that an employee is a thief, would take steps to get rid of him She's damn lucky she didn't wind up in the Arab Villages as so many other girls that were seduced under false pretenses I don't know where you work and I could care less, I'm certain that your employer doesn't encourage thieves, since the next step would be stealing from him, or if on the other hand, you wouldn't employ thieves as precaution of them stealing from you If it were your wallet that was being picked, I’m certain you wouldn’t be quite so liberal and generous
50. #26: Eli.....I am VERY disappointed in you!
Israeli 2   (07.29.11)
Never ever again say that you are proud to be a racist and claim to be Jewish at the same time. The true Jew is not a racist.....unless of course you pretend to be a Jew. Arabs may be many things, but we must not become racists because of them.
51. Israel is not the place for racism!!!
Dan ,   Israel   (07.29.11)
Rami Levi can move to Gaza. they like it in there....
from israel ,   with love   (07.29.11)
and your racist comments. I just asked myself, how could we live without your daily dose of bigotry????
53. #21 You lost your way, what's your name
BEN JABO ,   ISRAEL   (07.29.11)
How about showing any Arab that doesn't practice Apartheid, which they call Dhimmitude, relegating all NON-MUSLIMS to a status f being a lesser people ? We have the light, you're merely a dim bulb
54. #34 Salma , you must have pigged out
BEN JABO ,   ISRAEL   (07.29.11)
You had said that you would be after lunch, what happened, nobody can eat that much I would guess your waiting to compile your answers to my questions before you return
55. #51 DAN
BEN JABO ,   ISRAEL   (07.29.11)
If he were to move to Gaza, as you suggest, then how would any of his Arab employees be able to contact Jewish girls and fool them into stealing from their fathers ?
56. #49 Jabo, many baseless assumptions,
Michael ,   California, USA   (07.30.11)
This is what racist do and you are just one of them. A Black man steals an apple and a White racist will say all the Blacks are thieves, then will go on saying they are rapists, following by saying they are murderers. Why won't you take time out from posting baseless comments and read a little. Read about racist Jews, Arabs, Blacks, Whites. They all behave like you, post comments like you.
57. Muslims and non-Muslim girls.
Ameridane ,   Aarhus, Denmark   (07.30.11)
You don't have a monopoly in Israel. The same thing happens here in Denmark, young and not so young Muslims cruise with their convertible BMW and pick Danish girls up, dazzling them with their wealth and bravado macho-like. Until they get married and have to pay with a life like a slave/babies machines. The strange thing is that most of the young Muslims (read Arabs) don't have a job, some 40-50 % are unemployed (or rather unemployable) but still manage to have designers clothes and expensive cars. Who said that crime doesn't pay?
58. # 29 - LebanonPride
Michael Davison ,   Ra'anana, Israel   (07.30.11)
You should read the article carefully--they guy "made arrangments" to pay her back in installments. The girl's father would see the charge with his first credit card statement. At the rate of NIS 200 per month, the guy would need 22.5 months to pay back the full amount. Now the guy lives in Jordan with a NIS 4500 smart phone that he paid NIS 400 for at the most. Not a bad deal, I'd say...
59. Always blaming someone else....
Mikesailor ,   Miami, FL   (07.30.11)
This is a remarkably sad story of poor parenting and unwarranted blame yet, the interesting part is the reaction of so many talkbackers. Talk about projecting their own prejudices and racist beliefs onto the unknown protagonists. The story is quite simple. Boy and girl meet. They beciome friends. Boy asks girl for loan. Girl, apparently without knowledge of her father, takes father's credit card and purchases a cell phone for the boy ehich boy promises to pay for into father's credit card account. Daddy finds out that his daughter purchased the cell phone without his authorization and...what does he do? Instead of confronting daughter and telling her that she is responsible for taking his card and charging merchandise without authorization, he instead runs to her workplace and demands Boy be fired..Why? Because the boy was an Arab? He was the innocent in this mess. He didn't take the card, He didn't charge the phone, she did. All he did was work out terms to pay the loan back. Why did the father blame the Boy instead of blaming the daughter for her actions? She should be the guarantor of payment and be grounded for quite a while. Instead, father, by unjustly getting this boy fired, lost out on any loan repayment the boy might make. Instead of blaming the girl for her theft of the card, or the father for overreacting, most of these talkbackers blame the boy. Why? Because he is Palestinian? Instead of forcing the Jews in this story to take responsibility for their own actions, the only ones punished are Palestinians, even those who had nothing whatsoever to do with this contretemps.Avoiding responsibility while blaming others for the consequences of your own actions seems a peculiarly Israeli trait. If this is what you are taught, then you deserve whatever oppobrium may be heaped upon you. Many of these talkbackers are truly pathetic.
60. Muslims & Jews co-existence/Rami Levi
Expatriate   (07.30.11)
Having suffered repeated threats of physical violence from Muslims because of my wearing a kippah in Paris, I am now extremely weary of all Muslims. Is that surprising? Heck no! It is just a "survival" reflex. I am all for peaceful coexistence but not at the expense of my own or my brethrens' broken bones or much worse. The Koran and the Hadiths are the bases used by many/most Muslim clerics and assorted 'others" to exhort Muslims to destroy all Jews worldwide and eradicate Israel. People who pretend that it is not so are either self-deluded or outright liars or both. The well-known command "Ushmartem Meod ett Nafshochechem" is an order for self-preservation; there are no substitutes for this injunction. Co-existence maybe but NOT self-destruction due to willful ignorance or collaboration with the religious/political agenda of those who want to destroy us. The "Judenrat" mentality of WWII is a thing of the past; acceptance of Muslims in Israeli society and anywhere in the world for that matter, is contingent upon Islam's adherents recognizing the rights of all non-Moslems, including Jews, to exist in peace and the cessation of their habitual prevarications, terrorism, incitements of hatred etc. Until then, the events of Rami Levi will keep recurring in one guise or another.
