Gawker brings our attention to a great story from Israel: the group of female soldiers in the Israel Defense Forces who just won’t quit taking photos of themselves in various state of undress—holding various weaponry—and posting the images to Facebook. According to the AP, the young women have been reprimanded:

Israeli news site Walla said the women were new recruits stationed on a base in southern Israel. One picture showed the soldiers removing their fatigue uniforms to expose their underwear and back sides. In another, five women posed in what appeared to be a barracks room, dressed only in helmets and a small amount of combat equipment. The faces of the soldiers were blurred in the photos.

In a statement, the military said the young women had acted in a manner that showed “unbecoming behavior” for Israeli soldiers. “The commanding officers disciplined the soldiers as they saw fitting,” it said.

It doesn’t seem to have stopped them, though—Gawker reported that they’ve since uploaded three new images (see above). This means they probably won’t get to join any of the Birthright trips, which may be the greatest punishment of all—at least for American Jewish boys aged 18-26. The best part of the whole story, though, might be this homepage image on British newspaper The Sun’s website:
