Oregon militia man Blaine Cooper posted a video (below) of his fellow militia men blowing shofars, Jewish musical instruments, on his Facebook page on Jan. 17.

Cooper referred to the shofars as a "battle trumpet" to rally Christians in a caption with the video: "SHARE UPDATE BURNS OREGON! CHRISTIANS THE BATTLE TRUMPET HAS BEEN SOUNDED TIME TO RISE! CALL TO ACTION SEND IN THE TROOPS TO STAND WITH US IN BURNS OREGON!"

The armed militia men are illegally occupying the Malheur National Wildlife Refuge near Burns, Oregon.

According to Gawker, the shofar is normally used in synagogues during Rosh Hashanah.
