So let me get this straight, Daniel Lewin, a member of an elite Israeli task force that dealt in hijackings and terror operations, was either shot or
stabbed as he attempted to fend off these 'Arabs'?
What are the odds of a Capt in Sayeret Matkal being on AA11 and surrounded by Arab hijackers? Million to one
The odds of Sayeret Matkal leading a team doing the hijacking is 100 to 1
I'd say those odds of 100 to 1 are conservative if not a huge underestimation.......
From WND article, quoting a personal friend who grew up with Lewin;
He'd be more than a match for those skinny little (expletive)," said Brad Rephen, a New York lawyer who grew up with Lewin in Jerusalem. "With his
training, he would have killed them with his bare hands."
"I can tell you, their knives would not have stopped him," he added. "He would have taken their knives or their box cutters away and used them
Rephen recalls Lewin's injured hands after he returned from an Israeli anti-terrorist training course. - "They were pretty beaten up from the
fighting he did," he said. "He knew how to fight with knives and take knives away from people."
He described Lewin, at about 5-11, 200 pounds, as "thick-boned." He says he witnessed him bench-press more than 300 pounds and squat close to 500
pounds. - "He was very, very strong and had a lot of meat on him," Rephen said. "They couldn't have subdued him by slashing him. The only way they
could have stopped him was by shooting him."
Lewin went on dozens of such missions, friends say. In the '80s, for example, he helped rescue thousands of Jews stranded in Ethiopia. His outfit –
Unit 269 – secured the airport there during the airlift operation, friends say.
Rephen called Lewin "the best of the best." - "About 2,500 guys try out for the unit he was in," he said. "Twenty-five make it, and one gets
chosen as an officer. It was him."
He was also extremely tough and determined, Rephen says.
