i sent the evangelizm letter to Mr. Weinstein, and got this reply (translated):

hello tsahi asher,
thanks for your contacting us and clearing the facts in the subject you specified.
the site was built with knowledge that most of the Israeli public, like most of
the world, uses microsoft browsers, to it's various versions.

the option of converting the site to support the browsers you mentioned in your
letter is considered, but it is examined for reasond we keep for ourselves.

i hope that in the future the site will comply with the requirements of the
browsers in the market, and there won't be any special problems.

in any case, thank you very much. i hope that in the future we will find greate
use for the material you sent me.

regards,
alberto weinstein

bow.co.il seems to like MozillaFirebird, but not MozillaSeaMonkey. I can enter
the site with FireBird, too. On the other hand, eol.co.il (bug 211155), the
sister site of bow.co.il, doesn't have this effect, and deny access from both. 


Also, please note that Mozilla-NonFirebird can still access the site from
http://bow.co.il/site/he/homepage.asp.

Still partially blocked in FireBird 0.7. Press the About button (אודותינו), and
you're redirected to http://bow.co.il/site/templates/nsorie4.asp?lang=HE

Other than entering the site, can anyone here actually navigate through the
various pages?

> is thi still an issue ?

Site doesn't seem to block Firefox or other browsers (tested with epiphany-webkit, just to make sure). Site seems to be usable now. 

The flash applets make the site slow, making the window.alert links at the top navigation menu appear long time after the actual click.


I am closing this issue. If anyone objects, please let us know...
