A viral IDF video that has been viewed by over 600,000 gives a demonstration of modern Israel's character as an ingathering of exiles. The soldiers call out “attention!” in twelve languages, much to the merriment of all those involved.

The number 12 is unintentionally reminiscent of the 12 Tribes of Israel.

Amused viewer reactions reveal that the Russian-speaking soldier does not actually call others to attention, but rather calls them “lazy bums.”
