As we noted earlier this week, not everyone in Israel is pleased with their government’s collaboration with Maxim magazine on its “Women of the Israeli Defense Forces” photo spread.

But that didn’t put the kibosh on the New York Israeli consulate’s plans to co-host a celebratory bash Tuesday night with the raunchy lad mag.

Gawker was there, and its correspondent wasn’t too impressed: He wrote that he “fully expected to find a platoon of ultra hot IDF commandos,” but instead “it seemed more like your everyday UJA meeting.”
