- A former Israeli soldier has raised a storm on the internet after posting photographs of herself posing next to blindfold Palestinian prisoners on Facebook.

Photographs uploaded by Eden Abergil from Ashdod and labeled “IDF – the best time of my life” show her smiling next to Palestinian detainees with their hands bound and their eyes covered.

“That looks really sexy for you,” says a comment posted by one of Abergil’s friends on the social networking site, alongside a picture or the soldier smiling in front of two blindfold men.

Abergil’s repose, posted below, reads: “I wonder if he is on Facebook too – I’ll have to tag him in the photo.”

Because Abergil was discharged a year ago, the army has no power to prevent her from publicizing the photographs.

The pictures have since been removed from the site – but not before being duplicated across the web by a variety of bloggers and news sites.

Israeli blogger Lisa Goldman contacted the former soldier via Facebook, who replied: “I don’t speak to leftists.”

Yishai Menuchin, the director of the Public Committee Against Torture, an NGO, condemned the soldiers actions:

“The horrible pictures demonstrate a norm of treating Palestinians like objects instead of human beings – treatment that disregards their feelings as humans and their right to privacy.”

He added: “The soldier would go crazy if photographs of her in humiliating circumstances had been posted on the internet without her permission. We call upon IDF commanders to issue orders to prevent this kind of humiliating behavior.”
