An Israeli on vacation in NY is visiting the Bronx Zoo on a rainy day when he sees a little boy slip & fall into the lion’s den.
Suddenly, the lion charges the boy and is about to maul him, right under the eyes of his screaming parents.
The Israeli leaps into the den and hits the lion right on the nose with a powerful Krav Maga punch. Whimpering, the stunned lion jumps back, and the Israeli carries the terrified child to his parents, who thank him profusely.
A New York Times reporter happened to be watching the whole event.
The reporter says to the Israeli: “Sir, this was the most gallant and brave thing I’ve ever seen anyone do in my life.”
The Israeli replies, “Thank you very much but it was my duty. I saw that little boy in terrible danger and I had to do something.”
The reporter says, ‘Well, I’ll make sure this doesn’t go unnoticed. I’m a reporter, and tomorrow’s paper will have this on the front page. So, what country are you from anyway? and what do you do for a living?”
The Israeli replies, “oh, I’m from Israel and serve in the IDF.
The next morning the Israeli buys the NY Times to check out the article on the front page, and the headline reads:
“ISRAELI SOLDIER ASSAULTS AFRICAN IMMIGRANT AND STEALS HIS LUNCH.”"
