The first question I would ask this guy in the white undershirt would be: doesn’t Israel have enough danger and drama these days without you having to do this? Anyway, dude sprinted onto the field during a soccer game between Maccabi Haifa and Beitar Jerusalem (the former won, 2-1), in the 81st minute. And how to stop a drunken nut (or worse) who is roaming free on the pitch?

Because this is soccer, you slide-tackle him. The cop seen below executes this beautifully, and the only thing here that surprises me is that he did not get a red card. Soccer officials are notoriously picky and fanatical, after all.

I’ll just repeat that if I’m going to run onto the field at a pro sports venue, Israel is the last country I’d pick in which to do so. They have no sense of humor about things like this, and with good reason.

    No, they can’t afford to treat people “acting up” like we do. They are litterally fighting for their survival.
