    "where the hell is this beetle from?"

    Coastal plains of Israel.

    I think Tel Aviv being in the title is a bit of a clue, and googling epomis carabid very quickly gives this.

    That`s one mean carabid!

    "wow, didnt expect that. THats why i kill bugs"

    Its a beetle - coleoptera.
    Not a bug - hemiptera/homoptera.

    Of the estimated 400000 beetle species, most are veggies and perform some sort of useful function (though they also include some serious pests)

    You kill bugs `cos you`re ignorant.
