Committee to Protect Propaganda

Al_manar_1The Committee to Protect Journalists is disturbed that Israel is striking Al-Manar, Hezbollah's TV station. The CPJ writes:

The Geneva Conventions prohibit attacks on civilian targets unless they are used for military purposes. While Al-Manar may serve a propaganda function for Hezbollah, it does not appear based on a monitoring of its broadcasts today to be serving any discernible military function, according to CPJ’s analysis.

Meanwhile, the Jerusalem Post reports that Israel is threatening to quit the International Federation of Journalists, which also criticized the strikes on Al-Manar. Click here to see flaws in the CPJ and IFJ reasoning.

Recruitment and fundraising are both military functions when it comes to terrorist entities.

The CPJ is dead wrong.
