MK Benny Gantz with fake bodyguard in the Knesset. August 1, 2019

Blue&White leader, MK Benny Gantz spoke to the press outside the election committee meeting in the Knesset on Thursday. Gantz looked very prime-ministerial-like with his imposing (if shorter) bodyguard standing behind him in the photo shoot.

Knesset security got worried, as Gantz should not have had a private security guard with him inside the Knesset. Certainly not one dressed like a prime minister’s guard.


The “bodyguard” assured the Knesset security people, that even though he looked like Gantz’s bodyguard, and he acted like Gantz’s bodyguard, he wasn’t actually Gantz’s bodyguard. He wasn’t armed, and he is a member of Gantz’s reelection staff.

Poser – and we’re not referring to the “bodyguard”.
