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.

Recently, I've become very concerned with the speed at which motorists have been barreling through our neighborhood - and looking at the statistics, I have every reason to be worried.Here in the gated community of 'The Eagles' in Odessa (north west Tampa), there are many kids walking and playing around the footpaths and the suburban roads.Plea […]
At first, we were very worried about the boys' 'mother tongue' in the USA... of course they will remain multi-lingual, speaking three languages regularly in our home environment, but the variety of Chinese stimuli is somewhat limited in their day to day activities.'Mother Tongue' is a Singaporean local school curriculum component.

We came to Florida for two reasons - career advancement and lifestyle. I was given the choice between NYC and Tampa, FL as our home base... we chose Florida for the obvious lifestyle difference (Tampa has lots of space for the kids to grow up in, while New York is kind of like Singapore on steroids).I definitely didn't come here to retire - in fact I ex […]

As we were going through the decision of whether or not to pick up our whole life and move to the USA, I sought counsel from one of my close friends and colleagues (who happens to be Italian American) in Singapore. One of the key messages that he gave me was that in his opinion, I could not make the shift without seeking prior agreement with my wife to buy m […]
