Maxim Features Models From Israeli Army; Many in Israel Call It Inappropriate
By MATTI FRIEDMAN
The Associated Press
A new public relations effort by Israel's New York consulate wants the country known less for its conflict with the Palestinians or for its myriad holy sites than for its beautiful women in uniform. Or, more accurately, out of uniform.
A spread in the upcoming July issue of Maxim features a roster of Israeli models, all ex-soldiers, photographed wearing very little in the cause of their country. Headlined "Women of the Israel Defense Forces," the campaign has already been criticized as inappropriate in Israel.
The Maxim shoot presents Israeli models including Nivit Bash, who served in military intelligence though the only remnant of an army career evident in her photograph on the magazine's Web site is a military-style black cap that matches a minimal swimsuit.
Gal Gadot, a former Miss Israel and army fitness instructor, appears in a bikini and high heels sprawled provocatively on the ledge of a Tel Aviv high-rise. The photo also landed her on the cover of the New York Post below an equally provocative headline, "Piece in the Mideast."
The idea originated in the media office at Israel's consulate in New York, where research showed that Israel meant little to young American men.

I knew the Israeli army was good but not that good.
Good. Now maybe the US Forces will get over their ridiculous aversion to having their female soldiers pose in magazines.
Soldier let me introduce you to your new foxhole companion.
Can you imagine Nicky & Paris Hilton, Nicole Richie, Cermen Electra, J Lo driving a tank ?
I’m a bit torn whether or not it’s a good idea to put them on the front lines. On the one hand they’d clearly be a distraction but then again talk about a morale booster!
No but they could be of some military use. Drop them behind enemy lines and tell the media that they have to fight their way to them. No army in the world could stop them.
I surrender already!
Yeah, and what’s up with that stupid prohibition on gay sex in the barracks or adultery at home or officers consorting with enlisted men and such.
Hell, you would think that this is an Army or something. /s
Drop them behind enemy lines and tell the media that they have to fight their way to them.
The’advance’ would be so rapid, the media wouldn’t have time to’adjust’ the news / photos.
Officers consorting with enlisted men and gay sex in the barracks could interfere with reactions during combat due to a intimate relationship in existence. A woman exposing a nipple simply does not.
Talk about a blitzkrieg.
Huhuh huhuh, you said ‘fox hole’. Huhuh
Who cropped the pix?
“Can you imagine Nicky & Paris Hilton, Nicole Richie, Cermen Electra, J Lo driving a tank ?”
Coming to a Taliban stronghold soon!!!...
Yes! I remember thinking when I was in Israel that “wow, Israel has the best looking female soldiers, incredibly better than the girls in our Navy.”
...and good job with the photo links. The thread would have been useless otherwise.
In a country the size of Israel, EVERYWHERE is pretty much the front line.
We are talking small.
All of’em are a little too scrawny for me.
Don’t look like decendants of “pig and monkeys” to me.
My friend used to date a drop-dead gorgeous chick from Israel. It was weird swapping military stories with her.
They don’t have to order TNT anymore. They’re already got it.
