Access to Web Site is no longer available because of Java Script Error

Up until one month ago I was able to access: and watch the daily news feeds and now I cant. When I try to access the website using Firefox in Fedora 12 the browser comes up with an error as if the web site is no longer there which is not true. I have confirmed that the site is still avtive with: and that tells me that I dont have access because Java Script URLs are disabled.

Status: (N/A) Access to 'javascript' URIs has been disabled

I don't understand the error message because it appears that I don't have Java Script enabled in my Fire Fox Web Browser which is not true. It is enabled and I have confirmed that it is working by accessing the Java Web Site.

I would really appreciate some help to fix this problem, since that link was my access to the daily news and current events in my country.

The link you posted for worked fine for me.

You either have a problem with javascript, or your ISP has forbidden this IP address (this is more likely, I fear).

Perhaps, in your country, some people do not wish you to read certain "news and events" from foreign sites.

Repeated attempts to access these sites may draw unwanted attention to yourself.

Please take care.

That could very well be true since their is internet censorship in Kuwait, but it normally relates to sites with explicit sexual content and is followed by a screen stating that the web site has been blocked by the service provider.
