This paper outlines the Israeli practice of censorship in the occupied West Bank and the legal justifications given by the authorities for its imposition as it applies to importing, distributing, publishing, and possessing printed materials. In particular, it addresses Military Order No. 101 of 1967, the "Order Regarding Prohibition of Acts of Incitement and Hostile Propaganda." This military order, together with several others which address freedom of expression, results in an extensive and complex system of censorship. Taken together, they cover most methods of expressing or communicating ideas, giving Israeli military censors restrictive control over all publications which they consider to have any political meaning.
