LiLo’s New Israeli Girlfriend

Lindsay Lohan – erstwhile girlfriend of Jewish DJ-to-the-stars Samantha Ronson – has been spotted around town with a new sheyne meydl on her arm: former IDF soldier Eilat Anschel. TMZ reports that though the two met a while ago in LA, things have been heating up during the past month. It would seem, LiLo – who once toyed with converting to the tribe for Ronson – has a thing for Jewish girls.

Over at Gawker, Adrian Chen points out that the blogosphere’s breathless accounts of Lindsay’s “fighter”/”veteran”/”ex-IDF soldier” girlfriend fail to mention that military service in Israel is compulsory: “This is like saying Lindsay Lohan is a ‘former high school student.’”

Meanwhile, back in the real world, Lohan showed up today for a court hearing that could land her in jail – where some basic training might have come in handy.
