Lol
Is there a security check point (metal detector) at the entrance?

It is very high security: Each person must show pre-approved photo ID badges that have been entered into the computer every time they enter/re-enter the hall, and they check your wristband, too.
First time I've seen a bodyguard standing so close the entire speech -- even with high profile, Lev Leviev and George Rohr, etc....
This podium actually is turning, so the bodyguard is literally scanning the entire room as the podium spins... And, maybe one of the hardest parts -- he's not laughing while keeps turning...

Yup. Very tight security. Besides for the body guard though, is like that every year.

yes. Very high level international figures attend each year. I didn't really notice the bodyguard at the beginning, however it was funny that he was so close because of the rotating podium. (If it would be a stationary stage, then he'd see the entire 360. Here, he was standing so close and Yuli seems totally used to that... Was funny to watch.)

People who think that Levi Leviev and George Rohr have security with them, are just stupid.

I personally know that Levi Leviev does not have security most of the time (besides for when he's in Russia), so I find it funny when people talk about "high profile people" and their security.

On the other hand, the third most respected political figure in Israel (after the PM and president), it makes sense for him to have a body guard.

Does Lev ever carry around millions in diamonds...?.....   
After a while it looked funny while watching online -- the only reason that someone would stand that close is if they are ready to take a bullet for them. (Did the bodyguard have a bp vest on?)
From this perspective in the picture, the bodyguard could have (almost) very well been the actual speaker for the evening -- made me laugh when I saw it:

There was a similar one posted somewhere up thread.  Probably like 50 pages ago.
I still love it though.
