Poll: Majority of Israel's Jews back gag on rights groups

While we are on the topic of freedom of the press, Or Kashti reports in Haaretz.com, that "More than half of Jewish Israelis think human rights organizations that expose immoral behavior by Israel should not be allowed to operate freely, and think there is too much freedom of expression here, a recent survey found.

"The survey, commissioned by the Tami Steinmetz Center for Peace Research at Tel Aviv University, will be presented Wednesday at a conference on the limits of freedom of expression."

What's the next step? Detaining and imprisoning journalists, as in Iran?
