Real life in Israel seems to be notifying The Onion

Real life in Israel seems to be notifying The Onion news agency that they are not ridiculous enough to be considered original satire.

See it for yourself in a YouTube video filmed this week in Jerusalem. A Jewish man is stopped by the police for carrying a couple of small branches and a citrus fruit. The police officer promptly confiscates the handful of branches and calls for reinforcements while refusing to explain to the man why or under what law they have been taken.

On this one I'll leave the commentary to the comment section. You tell me what you make of this event, and if it makes any sense to you? Can you guess where this took place?
