I know this is not the right place for this but I know of no other way to both communicate with those responsible and bring this to the attention of the wider community. If this is true it is patently unaccpetbale. Regardless of the views espoused by anyone, they should not be banned from this site unless it is clear they are simply interested in making it more difficult for others to communicate. To have someone banned for the expression of views that do not accord with majority opinion is unacceptable, particularly given some of the inflamatory comments comming out of our side on many things.
I want this issue resolved to my satisfaction. L2T should be re-instated and policies must be developed so that there are precise, consistent rules that apply equally to everyone and there is both transparency and accountability in the decision making process. I would appreciate others lending their support here on principle, noting thata it is not necessary to agree with the contents of another's speech in order to agree with the principle that a free and open forum should allow those contents to be espoused.
with that last comment I agree whole-heartedly, and again, I expect this issue to be dealt with promptly by the pwers that be, whoever they are.This is the message:
Hello this is Like2talk,
It appears I have been fired from posting on Israelforum. This was a bit surprising because until then I only noticed one of my posts had been suppressed (but I had no explanations either). However I did have menacing messages from newguy weeks ago (which had answered by pointing to Negative Mitzvah 302. Probably not the kind of reasoning the forum owners here listen
to). Not hateful enough a Mitzvah... I'd say The fact that I pointed out that antisemistim in Europe was on a decreasing trend in the last 12 years was not appreciated eitherâ€¦ since it breaks the very logic of the forum is to say "we are hated by everybody, so we are allowed to hate them".
Farewell and note the policy of silencing people who do not agree with by forums owners to make it look as if many jews are extreme-right is just another proof that this forum does not deserves to bear the name of Israel. I am Israel and no policy of opinion-cleansing is justifiable!
