To all of those saying how ridiculous it is by US law:
This isn't the US. It's Israel. Their house, their rules. If in the country ixelwoop you were sentenced to death by hedgehog impalement for not wearing green pants with rainbow-colored polka dots on Nov. 11th every year, then so be it.
Dumb? Maybe, maybe not. But it isn't the US, so the verdict stands.
