Text: “[Fatah Central Committee member Sultan] Abu Al-Einein: Netanyahu is launching his election campaign by increasing the escalation in Jerusalem, and the Rami Levy [supermarket] operation (i.e., stabbing attack) is a natural response to the policy of oppression of our people… Fatah Central Committee member Sultan Abu Al-Einein… said that Israel has closed all political windows [of opportunity] on the two-state solution, and that our nation has many options. In addition, he noted that the stabbing attack at the Ramy Levy [supermarket] yesterday [Dec. 3, 2014] was a natural response to the Israeli policy of oppression of our people.”

Note: Rami Levy supermarket stabbing attack – On Dec. 3, 2014, a 16-year-old Palestinian from the West Bank town of Al-Azariya stabbed two shoppers at a Rami Levy supermarket in Mishor Adumim east of Jerusalem. The victims sustained moderate injuries. The terrorist was shot in the leg and arrested, along with two Palestinian men who had accompanied him.
