Israeli Soldiers Pose in Underwear
The Israeli Defense Force is not amused by several pictures surfacing of several young recruits posing in their underwear, or in some cases, less and the images ending up on social media and newspapers worldwide.
My first question is how were these young women, who were undergoing Infantry training, able to even have access to photo capability technology and upload these pictures? My second is why didn't this happen at my infantry training...
While their conduct is unbecoming, I think the IDF's issue is not that their recruits engage in these activities (lets face it, Israel conscripts almost every 18 year old man and woman into the service, so the odds of getting a few risque apples is high), but that they obviously do not have strict enough procedures to prevent them, such as simply confiscating phones as the United States does during training.
What say you?
