"Blow up a Jew" avatars degrading, offensive
 
I think the subject says it all. I am highly saddenned and offended by the use of the modified "Free Palestine' avatars. I'm all for equality anda separate, self-governed Palestinian state, but I am sickened and disgusted that there is violently anti-semitic propoganda in full view.

Like I said, I think the "Free Palestine" avatars are great, but "blow up a jew" has to go... please?

I will take a look. I assume that these people are some of the more, ah, politically active members who partake in heated discussions in the OF.

If you could list the people who have these avatars, or PM me thier names, that would be great. I want to make sure I take care of all of them.

edit: I don't see anyone who has an avatar that says "blow up a jew" on it :confused:

First off you should have PMd' me about this. I am the one who altered the original FREE PALESTINE. When you have a problem with a person in the forum then you go directly to them, before you make another thread in which you don't know what you are talking about.

1. I am not anti-semitic.
2. I am a staunch supporter of Israel.
3. It was a political statement against some of the more extreme members here who support Palestinian terrorists and the PLO's actions the past 30 years of suicide bombings. Like my wording or not but that is my view. BTW that does not mean all here who support the Palestinians, but rather just some one who does.
4. Some of us have different views about the Palestinian/Israel conflict.


My whole intent was to have the avatar up until a mod or Mike C contacted me. I made my point and then I removed it.

I was starting to have a problem with all the "Free Palestine" avatars myself. Nothing political - It was just everyone and their brother was using the same avatar making it hard for me to tell some of those people apart! :p

I completely missed the offending "blow up a jew" avatars and I guess it's a good thing!! I haven't banned anyone yet since being a mod but that would've changed really quick. :eek:

Just make sure it don't happen again. If you or anyone else cares to walk on that kind of thin ice, some of us will make sure you are dealt with mercilessly.

Well in all honesty it was just a bit of ribbing that went too far. Nothing malicious:)

The issue was already settled. You need not post this.

The avatar offended some people, I think it's a bit natural that they want to add their own bit to make their feelings on the matter known. :)

UDawg...buddy...

Come up with a tasteful avatar and stick with it man. The Underdog one was cool. Why do you have to buck everyone and go from one extreme to the other?
