AIPAC-related "Think-Tank" Suggests Military attacks on Media

The Journal of International Security Affairs is the publication of the Jewish Institute for National Security Affairs (JINSA) JINSA is part of the Conference of Presidents of Major American Jewish Organizations. All of the members of the Conference sit on AIPAC's Executive Committee.JINSA is among many of the many extreme organizations that are part of that coalition. How extreme? Let's see what one of the contributers to the publication suggested for media that does not tow the military-line in any conflict.

Today, the United States and its allies will never face a lone enemy on the battlefield. There will always be a hostile third party in the fight, but one which we not only refrain from attacking but are hesitant to annoy: the media.

...It seems unthinkable now, future wars may require censorship, news blackouts and, ultimately, military attacks on the partisan media. From Wishful Thinking and Indecisive Wars

Sound just like tough talk to you? Let's remember that in the early days of the war on Iraq, the Bush administration reportedly considered targeting Al Jeezera in Qatar. Or the many journalists killed in Palestine, including journalist James Miller. Just weeks ago, Amira Hass, a prominent Israeli journalist was arrested for committing actually doing her job. This is more than talk. And it is coming from the Israel Lobby. No limits to war.
