Naked support for Egyptian blogger

Israeli women have posed nude to show solidarity with Aliaa Mahdy, an Egyptian girl who attracted a slew of death threats after posting a nude self-portrait on her blog to protest against intolerance towards women.

Or Tepler, who was beh-ind the photoshoot (left), said she was shocked by the reaction to the photo.

"I felt that when a liberal, enlightened woman in Cairo cannot express herself . . . I should show solidarity," she said.
