The owner of the israeli gun forum just threatened to kick me out of the site for good if I don't remove my signature, containing a link to www.a-human-right.com - saying the site was militant.
Now he calls me a racist, because my new sig line refers to www.jpfo.org and has the phrase "every Jew should visit this!"

While I don't agree that those sites are either militant or racist, it is ultimately that individual's forum and you should abide by his rules.

If you don't like it, leave the forum...

The forum is www.haslik.co.il
I do abide by his rules, but they are STUPID, and if this continues, I WILL leave that forum.

Gee, an Israeli denouncing the JPFO? What has the world come to?

His rules, his show...there are so many forums out there, just find another one you can be happy with (other than THR, right :scrutiny: ?)

I tried to take a look at the site.

It appears that is backwards and the text is in Martian.

I wouldn't let it bother you.

Perhaps they've forgotten that occassionally the government which purports to serve the people turn against a certain subgroup?

Micro, how did you get it in English? I logged on and only got it in Hebrew with no options for English?

As far as not wanting a link to a militant site, I did not visit the site (no time tonight; early day at the range tomorrow testing out product), so I cannot say what I think, but perhaps he is concerned and does not want to associate his site with certain other sites for personal (or possibly governmental) reasons.

Can't understand his beef with your jpfo sig line, though.

On the other hand, we have all come across mods with control-freak tendencies on other forums.

Let me know how to link in English and I will check in and see for myself what's what and get back to you on what I think of it.

Oleg is too militant for the Israeli gun buffs and JPFO is racist.

Uh... okay...

I'm not sure I'd want to hang out at a place where such obvious genius congregated.

Micro's an Israeli, so I doubt that bothers him.

Is "Jew" considered offensive?

I wasn't aware the site referred to was Oleg's. I logged on today and clicked on both options and I see nothing militant about the site. It's a great sight.

I think Micro is right to be upset and the owner of the site is dead wrong.

He did see Oleg's site. Not JPFO afaik, but he thinks the line "every Jew should visit this!" is racist. One other idiot on the site said:
1)The site (Oleg's) is militant because:
a)It encourages people to carry concealed.
b)It encourages people to stock up on guns, especially military guns, which were made for war, and not self-defense or sport.
And so on. Many of the guys there believe gun control is cool.
Oh and yeah - Israel is to gun nuts what Germany was to Jews circa 1939.:fire:

Sometimes people are too quick to judge a book by a first glance at it's cover. You would not believe the confrontations I have had when wearing my JPFO "All those in favor of gun control please raise your right hand" shirt. All anyone ever sees is a picture of Hitler...then the threats start. Sometimes this works to my advantage though. Angry people that would not ordinarily talk to me, confront me and learn that the message is really quite contrary to what they assumed it was. I have even made a few friends this way. It has also taught me to try and restrain many snap judgements.
