An Israeli woman is alleging that the Unite States Secret Service assaulted her in the streets before Biden’s arrival.
The attack on Tamar Ben-Haim, 30, came earlier in July, prior to President Biden’s arrival in the country, on a popular street in Jerusalem and was all caught on security camera.
According to Tamar, she was approached by a large American man, supposedly a Secret Service agent, who grabbed the poor young woman and began punching her in the stomach :over and over” again.
“Before I could understand what was happening, I felt a hard slap across my face, and he immediately began punching me in the chest,” the young woman told FOX News about the assault.
The Secret Service seemingly confirmed the attack, saying that one of their agents in the country was “allegedly involved in a physical encounter” in the Jewish capital and was sent back to the United States after he was “briefly detained and questioned by Israeli police, who released him without charges.”
Ben-Haim also spoke about the unprovoked attack to Israeli TV, saying that she “was in total shock” and that the assailant “was so strong … I couldn’t even attempt to defend myself. In my head, I was thinking, ‘You won’t survive this. This is the end of your life.'”
She said her life was saved when an armed bystander began screaming at and restraining the agent in English, saying it was clear in the moment that the two knew each other.
The Israeli was able to get pictures of the two men involved in the incident before escaping with her life. They were also caught on security camera, showing the assailing agent stumbling out of a bar moments before the attack.
Despite reporting the horrific attack to Israeli police, Ben-Haim was left in the dark until she was contacted for an interview by a TV station who revealed the agent was part of the Counter Assault Team.
“When I heard who he was, I just felt more anger, more hurt. He’s not a homeless person off the street. He’s a trained fighter,” she testified.
She also said that she believes the United States is trying to cover up the assault to save face, telling the outlet, “This is not someone from a third-world country. America is the example of the world, and he works for the president. They just shipped him back to where he came like nothing ever happened, and they expect me to just move on with my life.”
It seems clear that the United States Secret Service and Israel are working together to cover up for the attack with no concern for the victim. Do you think the agent should be sent back to Israel and tried for what he did to this young lady?
