Is a site accessible if it requires JavaScript?

 

The Target.com website blocks users who don't have JavaScript enabled. If you turn JavaScript off and visit the Target site, you'll see a modal dialog warning you that "Target.com requires javascript to be enabled." If JavaScript is off, you can't dismiss the dialog box.

It would never have occurred to me to design a site that way, and I've never considered the accessibility implications of such a sweeping move. Is this kind of a website accessible?
