About 50 Israeli women posed for a nude photo on Saturday, in a show of solidarity with 20-year-old Egyptian blogger Aliaa Magda Elmahdy.

Elmahdy was the target of sharp criticism from liberals and conservatives alike in Egypt for posting nude photos of herself on her blog in protest of the conservative Muslim country's restricted freedom of expression.

The women posed with a banner reading "Love without borders" in English, Hebrew and Arabic, at Beit Ha'am on Rothschild Boulevard.
