A Cockroach in the Knesset

On the lighter side, a cockroach in the Knesset cafeteria has created an uproar:
One Shas official called the incident a "scandal," adding that it was difficult to understand how a cockroach could be found on a plate at a cafeteria that operates under Kosher supervision.

"In addition to the grave Kosher problem in this incident, there is a health problem that the Knesset officials must face," the official said.

Interesting definition of a scandal.
