    A number of years ago I was on Miluim in the North. I was guarding the gate to the base. It was Shabbos. I looked up and say a hang glider above the base. I was about to open fire on it (we had been give specific order to shoot down any hang gliders over the base due to an intelligence report) when another soldier standing near me began shouting that he knows who it was and not to shoot at him. After questioning him, I concluded that he in fact knew the idiot and that this was not an attack. I told him to tell his friend how he almost got killed. These idiots are lucky to be alive.
