Candy Crush Saga is a very popular game among Facebook users, on smartphones and on computers, but apparently it is also a great way of passing the time during a boring Knesset discussion.

On Monday, MK Meir Sheetrit (Hatnua), apparently bored with the discussion over the new infiltrators law, whipped out his tablet and started playing the highly addictive game.

Unfortunately for Sheetrit, the Knesset Channel which televised the debate caught on to the fact that he was playing the game and filmed him for several minutes while doing so.

Sheetrit was eventually informed by Knesset Director Ronen Plot that he had been caught by the cameras.

Before Rosh Hashanah, Prime Minister Binyamin Netanyahu recorded a special video greeting to the Israeli people in which he was seen talking about the threats facing Israel and was then shown staring down at his iPad on which he was playing Candy Crush Saga.
