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.

Florida garners quite a bit of hate from the rest of the country when the winter months start to roll around. People in Chicago, Boston and New York really just don’t understand that we, too, get a winter season. Sure, we don’t get feet upon feet of snow, and we rarely hit below-freezing temperatures. But we still have a winter season—it’s just a little warm […]
Well, this is pretty novel... I often complain to my wife that even with the million dollar views and living in what is one of the nicest, safest and friendliest communities in all of Florida, having a two-car garage is tough when we need to park my 2015 Mustang GT and her 2015 Ford Explorer side-by-side. It's a tight squeeze!Whenever we park either car […]
