PIZZAIDF.COM UPDATE: Back at the beginning of the month, a number of Web logs, including ours, mentioned that it was possible to buy a Kosher pizza online and a large bottle of Pepsi to be delivered to an Israeli Defense Forces patrol, section, or platoon.
Apparently this week however, military commanders decided to bar soldiers from accepting pizzas they did not order, “due to concern that hostile elements may exploit the pizza deliveries to soldiers,” the army said in a statement.
Group Captain Lionel Mandrake checked with the London Israeli Embassy for confirmation. It’s true–read their reply here.
(By the way, great digging and reporting, Group Captain!)
