Quick, somebody bust out a Lure Module, there's a security breach in the President of Israel's official residence. President Reuven "Ruvi" Rivlin posted a photo to Facebook of the Pokemon Go invasion within the Presidential house (called the Beit HaNassi, "President's House").

Somehow, Meowth was able to get past security and into the President's private quarters. Considering he (or she?) comes in at 1 foot 4 inches, they probably snuck in with a delivery of rugelach.

Meowth broke in to the Israeli Presidential Residence.

It's not clear if the photo was taken by President Rivlin or someone on his staff, but regardless, the owner went to great digital lengths to even find Meowth. Officially, Pokémon Go is only available in the United States, New Zealand, and Australia (but like many things online, people have...other ways of downloading it).

It's a nice piece of positive press for Pokémon Go, which hasn't been the most popular game among prominent Jewish organizations in the past week.

Perhaps this is the state of Israel's way of saying, "See, we have fun too, just in the proper places." Like the President's house.
