Mil­i­tary weekly in trou­ble over drag re­port

The Washington Times Daily - - World -

JERUSALEM | An ar­ti­cle about off­duty sol­diers in Is­rael dou­bling as drag queens has got­ten an Is­raeli mil­i­tary mag­a­zine into trou­ble.

The mil­i­tary said Tues­day that the weekly, Bama­hane, from now on must send its ar­ti­cles for ap­proval by the chief ed­u­ca­tion of­fi­cer.

The writer in­ter­viewed three ac­tive-duty sol­diers who slip into drag af­ter their shifts.

The ar­ti­cle was il­lus­trated by pho­tos, in­clud­ing one of a sol­dier in mil­i­tary uni­form wear­ing a gas mask and red over-the-knee boots with seethrough high heels.

The mil­i­tary said the army’s chief of the Ed­u­ca­tion and Youth Corps is re­spon­si­ble for over­see­ing the mag­a­zine’s con­tent but that this has not been en­forced.
