Israeli tourist strips in anger - but why abroad?

One just cannot help noticing this headline.

An Israeli tourist who felt harassed when New Zealand road workers whistled at her Thursday stripped naked in response, police said.

Workmen in the small northern farming town of Kerikeri were repairing the main street when the young woman took offense at their attention.

On a balmy late-autumn day, she calmly stripped bare to use an ATM - bringing an abrupt halt to both the whistles and the road work - then put her clothes back on and walked away.
Now I am angry too. For crying out loud - what are we here - lambs? Vegetarians? Monks? If you prick us, do we not bleed? Just look at this:
"She gave the explanation that she had been ... pestered by New Zealand men. She's not an unattractive-looking lady," he [NZ police sergeant] said.
OK, that's it. Now to the list of action items:
  1. Take care of NZ the soonest
  2. Find out who gives whistling lessons
  3. Focus
