Female Israeli soldiers disciplined for 'unbecoming behaviour' ...

Female Israeli soldiers disciplined for 'unbecoming behaviour' after posing for pictures dressed only in their underwear and combat fatigues
  • Group of women are said to be new recruits based in southern Israel
  • Pictures show them dressed only in their underwear and combat fatigues
  • Israeli military said they were disciplined for their 'unbecoming behaviour'
  • Latest in string of incidents with inappropriate images of Israeli soldiers

Dressed only in their underwear and provocatively holding weapons for the camera, they appear to be having a great time posing for photographs in their barracks room.

But four Israeli female soldiers have now been disciplined by the country's military for their 'unbecoming behaviour' after the raunchy pictures were posted on Facebook.

The images, published on Israeli news website Walla, showed the soldiers removing their fatigues to expose their underwear and backsides.

In another, five women posed in what appeared to be a barracks room, dressed only in helmets and a small amount of combat equipment.

Walla, which blurred the faces of the women, said they were new recruits stationed on a base in southern Israel.

The incident is the latest in a string of episodes involving young Israeli soldiers on social media that have drawn reprimand from the military.

In a statement, the military said the women had acted in a manner showing 'unbecoming behaviour' for Israeli soldiers, adding: 'The commanding officers disciplined the soldiers as they saw fitting.'

The statement did not identify the soldiers or give any details about the punishments. Military officials said the base conducted educational lectures to keep soldiers from repeating the offence.

Several times in recent years, the Israeli military has disciplined soldiers for what were considered improper postings in social media sites.

Last year, the social media chief for the Israel Defence Force was branded 'racist' after posting a picture on Facebook of his face covered in mud alongside the caption 'Obama style'.

Lt. Sacha Dratwa faced a barrage of abuse for the picture, which appeared to show him swimming in the Dead Sea, and denied he was racist.

A male Israeli soldier was also condemned after being filmed dancing suggestively around a blindfolded Palestinian woman in a video posted to YouTube in 2010.

That incident followed the discovery of photos earlier that year showing a female soldier posing in front of Palestinian prisoners.

The Israeli military banned soldiers from using social media sites while on base after the photographs came to light.

The ban was an effort to prevent future embarrassing posts on social media. It remains unclear whether the ban is in effect.

Early this year, another soldier was reprimanded for writing anti-Palestinian tweets and posting pictures to multiple social media services showing himself naked with a gun.

Most Jewish Israeli men and women are required to serve in the military, starting at age 18.

Since the Peace Process is going nowhere, maybe Israel is trying...

Dayum...

The belief that man is an irresolute creature pulled this way and that by two forces of equal strength, alternately winning and losing the battle for his soul; the conviction that human life is nothing more than an uncertain struggle between heaven and hell; the faith in two opposed entities, Satan and Christ - all this was bound to engender those internal discords in which the mind, excited by the incessant fighting, stimulated as it were by the constant promises and threats, ends up by giving in and prostitutes itself to whichever of the two combatants has been more obstinate in its pursuit. Life isn't black and white, it's gold.

Clearly an example of the media being obsessed with sex, frankly this is an Israeli domestic news story hardly worthy of international attention.
