Picture of Israeli Soldiers Calling Prime Minister Benjamin Netanyahu a “Loser” Goes Viral

Soldiers spell out “Bibi loser” in Hebrew

In case there was any doubt of the frustration that many Israeli soldiers are feeling with the cease-fire, a photograph depicting 16 uniformed soldiers with their bodies arranged to spell out “Bibi loser” in Hebrew quickly turned viral Thursday. The Times of Israel calls it “a deft physical critique of Prime Minister Benjamin (Bibi) Netanyahu’s failure to send ground troops into Gaza during the just-ended Operation Pillar of Defense.”

The source of the photograph is not clear, and the Israeli military said it was looking into the issue with a spokesman saying soldiers shouldn’t be expressing political opinions while in uniform.
