Shouts to my new online friend Rosa for sending me this video report on this story which is still causing a bunch of controversy across the web. This report offers commentary from the soldier herself and IDF officials and critics who feel this is a human rights issue. SOURCE:

Can we all see why this war will never end between Palestinians and Israel? This was a totally dumb move by this soldier and she needs to be reprimanded immediately.
JERUSALEM — A former Israeli soldier posted photos on Facebook of herself in uniform smiling beside bound and blindfolded Palestinian prisoners, drawing sharp criticism Monday from the Israeli military and Palestinian officials.
Israeli news websites and blogs showed two photographs of the woman. In one, she is sitting legs crossed beside a blindfolded Palestinian man who is slumped against a concrete barrier. His face is turned downwards, while she leans toward him with her face upturned. Another shows her smiling at the camera with three Palestinian men with bound hands and blindfolds behind her.
The incident was a reminder of the fraught relations between Israeli soldiers and the West Bank Palestinians under their control.
