The Israeli military has ordered an investigation into a video uploaded to YouTube that apparently shows an Israeli soldier belly dancing beside a bound and handcuffed Palestinian woman.
Human rights groups have come out and said that a set of photographs released six weeks ago were “clear evidence of a culture within the (Israeli) military that treated Palestinians as objects rather than human beings”. The images portrayed an Israeli soldier smiling and playing around next to blindfolded and handcuffed Palestinian prisoners. The Palestinian Authority described the pictures as ‘humiliating”.
Therefore, I expect a similar outrage from this latest video to surface on YouTube – An Israeli soldier dancing and gyrating around a clearly terrified female Palestinian prisoner who is tied and also blindfolded.
The army has branded the Israeli commando’s actions as “SHAMEFUL”.
The editor of the video seems to think of himself as some kind of comedian, by annotating the clip with a speech bubble rising from the prisoner’s mouth – translated, it reads “Allahu Akbar” – Arabic for “God is Greatest.”
The Israeli military has ordered an investigation into the video that was first aired on local Israeli TV.

Known as a PACU, the "ball-cutter" fish has a set of chompers very similar to that of a human. Usually found only in warm waters of the Amazon River, the Pacu, a relative of the Piranha, can grow up to a length of 90cm and a weight of 25kg.So it came as a complete surprise when a 21cm Pacu was caught in an eel trap in Oresund Sound off the south co […]

Now here is something that I never considered when I started the Sealy Sleep Ambassador campaign.Of course, I’d heard about REM (rapid eye movement) sleep before and have read reports of how not getting enough can have serious consequences on my health. What I didn’t know was that I just haven’t been experiencing it often enough over recent years. I sort of […]

This time around, when OMY kindly invited me to take part in the 'Sealy Sleep Ambassador 2013' campaign, I h […]
