Photo Op

I know it was International Women's Day this week, and that was probably what Prime Minister Netanyahu's staff had in mind when they arranged the photo op with female IDF officers during his visit to the Jordan Valley:

Bb's angels

But one has to wonder about the wisdom of such an image for a leader who has had some, ahem, fidelity issues in the past.

For context, would Bill Clinton's staff have allowed him to pose for a photo with attractive female US army officers after the Monica Lewinsky scandal?

I'm just saying...

It does give the impression, intended or not, that there is a high percentage of female officers serving in the Jordan Valley.

At least he kept his hands to himself in the picture.

It's pretty hard to find an unattractive female Israeli soldier.

It's always good to see Jewish women with guns. . .
