Jerusalem - Sixteen IDF soldiers could face court-martial proceedings after posing in uniform for a photograph where their arranged bodies spelled out the phrase “Bibi Loser” in Hebrew letters. Their act is an expression of defiance against Israeli Prime Minister Netanyahu’s decision to accept a cease-fire with Hamas instead of sending ground troops into Gaza.

The Times of Israel reports (http://bit.ly/SYd2bf) that the photograph has gone viral, and has received over 3,000 “Likes” and 400 “shares” in one Facebook group alone within just three hours of being posted. Comments on the photo ranged from those calling for the soldiers to be court-martialed to sympathy for the soldiers’ frustration.

Other comments refer to Netanyahu as a coward for keeping the IDF from “giving it to Hamas” and “getting the job done.”

Tens of thousands of reservists were called up and deployed close to the Gaza border, but were told to stand down. “We were twice ordered to gear up and told that we are going in, and then we were called back to Israel,” said one soldier. Other soldiers reported that they had even opened the border gates, but were ordered to return.

It is still unclear where the photo originated. Though the soldiers did not wear their distinctive insignias in the photo, their red boots reveal that they are from infantry units. The IDF Spokesman’s Office said it is investigating the incident.

Mi K'amcha Yisroel? These brave chayalim want to end the fear and danger to the innocent civilians who have lived through the worst possible conditions forced upon them by these terrorist and Jew haters!!!! These brave Yehudim are willing to risk their lives to protect their brothers and sisters, old and young, men, women and children, secular and religious who only wish to live in peace, true peace something the Palestinians have no measure of comprehension.

So Mr. Kzler
Should we get ready for another incoherent, spelling error filled, grammatically incorrect, screed about how those of us not currently in the IDF have no right to our opinions?
Apparently we are not alone in our disappointment .

They should get the same punishment as the Nachal 50 soldiers got for their music video.

Jews who act like the expression of foolish narishkeit deserve the future to be decided for them.

Hey, it's cute. First of all, I imagine they're probably all very young; second, it was a way for the poor boys to vent their pent up tension and subsequent letdown. And it was a pretty safe way. A little talking-to should do it...

Althou I can understand their fustration and I respect these angels in human bodies because thats what these soldiers are they still have to undertstand that Bibi has to make calls that we may not like since we dont have all the facts and perhaps bibi has a game plan.

soldiers of Israel i admire you and hold you in the highest regard.
May Hashem watch over you and protect you and give you the stregnth to over come the enemy.

Rachel, What you call "cute" is INSUBORDINATION. Let the civilians protest the action of government, not the military personell.

when moral goes bad nothing else matters, makes one wonder how many others feel like these guys? israel goes and defends itself, then obama according to reports puts pressure on them and they give up, the world never respected the weak, certainly not weak jews

Of course Bibi is a loser, but will blame someone else, so these soldiers may get it for pointing out the obvious. Bibi is actually worse than a loser. He put his possible reelection campaign ahead of military and security considerations. Israelis should throw the bum out of office now and not wait until January.

"Since when is lamed vov zayin reish, "loser?"

You miss the entire point! The expression is not in עברית, but a transliteration of the English!
