Israeli Soldier Dances Around Palestinian Female Prisoner (VIDEO)

JERUSALEM (AP) -- The Israeli military says it is investigating a video that appears to show an Israeli soldier dancing around a blindfolded Palestinian woman. (Scroll down for video)

In the video, the woman, wearing a Muslim headscarf and long black robe, stands along a wall as the soldier wiggles around her and makes suggestive gestures.

It's the latest in a series of embarrassing videos and photos purportedly showing Israeli soldiers mocking Palestinians. If authentic, it would be the first to specifically humiliate a Palestinian woman, a deeply sensitive issue in Arab society.

The video was uploaded to YouTube two years ago but has gained widespread public attention since it was aired this week by a local TV station.

The army said Tuesday the video did not represent military values.
