Israeli News Outlet Y-Net Covers Soldiers Mooning Palestinians

"Abu Ghraib prison (in Iraq), IDF-style… the soldiers of any occupation are immoral by definition, but the IDF soldiers who exposed themselves have long been stripped of their humane values."
--- Member of the Knesset Ahmad Tibi (United Arab List-Ta'al) describing CPT footage of Israeli soldiers exposing their bottoms to Palestinian shepherds

According to Y-net, the incident that we caught on tape is being investigated by IDF Central Command. It saddens and sickens me that all of the more terrible incidents we've filmed, like our friend and At-Tuwani nonviolent resistance leader being beaten by Israeli soldiers simply for demonstrating, haven't been worth investigating. It's not just the Israeli army who have exposed themselves - Israeli society is demonstrating that they are more interested in butts than human rights violations.
