IDF soldiers do body spelling of "Bibi loser"

The Times of Israel reports that Netanyahu's turned off the rank and file of the army:
The IDF Spokesman’s Office said Thursday it was looking into a photograph circulating widely on Facebook in which 16 IDF soldiers arranged their uniformed bodies on the sand, to spell out the Hebrew words “Bibi loser” — in 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.

Netanyahu warned throughout the operation that a wider military assault on Hamas might be about to unfold. The IDF called up tens of thousands of reservists and deployed large troop contingents close to the Gaza border, and some troops were reportedly ordered more than once to gear up for an incursion, only to be ordered to stand down at the last moment.

“We were twice ordered to gear up and told that we are going in, and then we were called back to Israel,” one soldier said Thursday; others said they had even opened border gates before being told to return....

Many commenters on the photo said that the soldiers should be court-martialed; many others empathized with the soldiers’ evident sense of frustration at having been wound up for battle and then wound down, calling Netanyahu a coward and criticizing the prime minister for preventing the IDF from “getting the job done” and “giving it to Hamas.”
Via Jihad Watch and Pamela Geller, who makes a point that:
Clearly, Netanyahu came under enormous pressure from Barack and Hillary, but so what? The Obama administration has supported the most vicious enemies of Israel (the Muslim Brotherhood). Bibi is responsible for the security of his nation. Period. This hudna gives the jihadists time to regroup, rearm, rebuild. And it cannot be understated that every rocket of the thousands of rockets fired upon the tiny Jewish state teaches these savages something new.
If they're angry at Netanyahu too, their anguish is fully justified. The "ceasefire" has only served to weaken the Likud in polls too. Here's still more on the subject from Melanie Phillips.
