Israeli Soldiers In Trouble For ‘Gangnam Style’ [Video]

A group of Israeli soldiers who diverted their patrol into a dancehall earlier this week are facing their commanding officer’s displeasure, after video captured the men — armed, wearing helmets and other gear — dancing with dozens of Palestinians in a club in Hebron. They were drawn into the building by hearing “Gangnam Style,” the iconic dance hit song by South Korean rapper Psy.

A video of the event shows that at least twice, a soldier is hoisted on the partygoers’ shoulders, drawing cheers from the crowd. In one sequence, he clasps hands with a man dancing next to him — who’s also on someone’s shoulders — all while keeping his assault rifle, a Tavor TAR-21, in his other hand. A video posted to YouTube says the Palestinians were celebrating a wedding.

As the video shows, dozens of young men cheered and held cameras and phones aloft, trying to capture the unlikely moment. We also note that the soldiers seem to have avoided the misstep of handing their weapons to others so they could dance.

In what could be called a rejection of “Gangnam Style” diplomacy, the Israeli Defense Forces has suspended the soldiers from duty in the elite Givati Brigade as it investigates the incident.
