An Israeli army general ordered an army journal not to publish this week’s edition because it featured a cover story focusing on a reserve colonel’s homosexuality, according to the Jerusalem Post. Brig. Gen. Elazar Stern said Bamachaneh could not publish until its full-time editor returns after he recovers from a car accident. Israel Defense Force Chief of Staff Shaul Mofaz, however, denied that the dispute was related to the article on the homosexual colonel, and said the magazine would keep to its normal publishing schedule.
