The dangers of posting personal photos on Facebook

Photos uploaded onto Facebook by a former IDF solider showing her posing next to detained Palestinians (who were handcuffed and blind folded) have caused outrage.
The soldier, who was recently discharged from the IDF, posted the photos on facebook in an album she called " time of my life :)."

This episode in yet another political PR disaster for Israel because it supports the view of opponents of the IDF that Israel objectifies Palestinians and have a complete disregard for their humanity, human rights and right for privacy.
