A Photo of Naked Ethiopian Woman posted on Facebook by an Israeli photojournalist caused storm

A picture of a nude Ethiopian woman caused a storm after it was posted to Facebook by an Israeli photojournalist and documentarian, who eventually decided Tuesday to remove it from the Internet.

Disgusted viewers posted remarks slamming the photographer, Ziv Koren, accusing him of taking advantage of the woman, a new immigrant bathing in a mikve at a Jewish agency camp, questioning whether the photographer asked her permission to take and publish the photo, and even if she gave consent, whether it was authentic – given her vulnerable status at the time it was taken. 

"That woman probably doesn't know Hebrew, and whoever translated surely didn't explain that it was artistic photography and that she should feel free to refuse," wrote one Internet surfer, adding that "it must be understood what's going on with the Falashmura [immigrants], they are passed on the message in simplistic words or hints, that if they refuse to participate in the religious ceremonies they won't be accepted to make aliyah to Israel."

excuse my small amount of sarcasm but, i want people to stop a think about this for awhile,....Israel is all but under siege, surrounded by enemies & yet, there are ignorant people within there ranks snapping pictures of women undressed?....what idiocrisy, it makes me question how in anyway shape, form of fashion that a person can be given the keys to success, step-by-step, & perform the most immature, vulgar, & highly disrespectful acts without question.....but on the other hand, the way things look in Israel in the near future, even recognized by Israelis themselves, I guess that pic was for the road to the fires....{possible thoughts by photographer, in question}....to Photojournalist, "any last requests?..."---Photographer, "one last look @ the mother of Creation." I empathize with you, but no more will your heinous deeds will go unpunished, in this age. no more ha, ha, ha's at your creator's expense.
