Jobnik! A Good Jewish Girl Gone Better
I saw another post somewhere about hot pictures of Israeli women soldiers. It's always kind of weird. Certainly, the idea that Jewish women can be hot is a new and welcome development in the world. Certainly, objectifying women (and with guns) is still problematic. And does this bring people together in shared lust or set Jews apart as a dangerous other (and with guns). Anyway, at some point on Newsvine I had lined to an article in Zeek on Jobnik!, "an extraordinary independent comic series by Miriam Libicki, relaying her experience as a Jewish-American girl from a devout Orthodox family who makes aliyah at the age of 17." Thought I'd offer it again. That's Herzl in the picture.
