IDF soldiers under investigation for dancing in Hebron casbah

Just a few hours ago, I posted a video of IDF soldiers dancing in the Hebron casbah. I haven't seen this yet from an Israeli source, but a 'Palestinian' source claims the IDF is investigating.
Palestinians in Hebron who complain that the Israeli soldiers patrolling the southern West Bank city rarely intervene to stop settler violence may now know why.

Israel's army says it is investigating the source of a video showing soldiers aiming guns at various objects before breaking into choreographed dance on a road in Hebron.

The video, which appeared online over the weekend and on Israeli TV ever since, depicts the six soldiers - still armed with assault rifles - performing in sync to US pop singer Kei$a's "Tick Tock" hit.
AP also reports that the IDF is not thrilled about it (Hat Tip: Jan Simmonds via Twitter).
The military called the video a "stunt" and said the troops' commanders have been informed. That could mean their next dance will be "Jailhouse Rock."
I wonder if they're the same guys I saw at a wedding a few months ago.

I guess the politically correct IDF brass are not pleased soldiers had fun at the Arabs' expense.

They certainly forestalled an inevitable UN investigation. How dare, how dare Israeli soldiers dance in the Hebron Casbah!
