Former good article Ariel Sharon was one of the good articles, but it has been removed from the list. There are suggestions below for improving the article to meet the good article criteria. Once these issues have been addressed, the article can be renominated. Editors may also seek a reassessment of the decision if they believe there was a mistake.

Legal findings[edit]

My concern is that the concluding phrase on the legal findings of the NY court that investigated Sharon's libel case misrepresent the information given by the reference cited in this entry (number 35).

Here is the phrase: Although the jury concluded that the Time story included false allegations, they found that Time had not acted with "actual malice" and so was not guilty of libel.[35]

The article is clear that Sharon lost the libel case with unanimity of the jury, failing to prove that Time defamed him with malice. On the other hand, Time failed to provide legally acceptable evidence that supported its arguments against Sharon. This is most of the time the case with investigative journalism, as it can rely on evidences looser than what the courts accept as proof. Also the reference article points out that Time accused the Israeli government of hampering the defense by threatening the potential witnesses and barring access to potentially interesting documents.

The current sentence describing the verdict presents the claim to moral victory of Sharon's attorney before citing jury's unanimous verdict, which can be considered a journalistic trick to create prejudgement in the mind of the reader, and does not seem appropriate for an encyclopedia. A more factual sentence would first mention that the jury cleared Time of having defamed Sharon in an act of malice, and then proceed to further details about the terms of the verdict, including the fact that Time could not bring legally acceptable evidences to support its defamatory act.

I am not a part of the team working on this page, but I ask you to fix this in the way you see appropriate. — Preceding unsigned comment added by Mszargar (talkcontribs) 01:29, 13 January 2014 (UTC)

Semi-protected edit request on 15 January 2014[edit]

Here's the text I'd like to be changed.

Margalit died in a car accident in May 1962. Their son, Gur, died in October 1967 after a friend accidentally shot him while they were playing with a rifle.[

Please put the sentences together: ...May 1962, and Gur died..."

The previous sentence says who Gur was, so we don't need to explain again who he was. 2001:18E8:2:1020:3190:5D44:EEF4:77CE (talk) 19:07, 15 January 2014 (UTC)

Bar Lev Line[edit]

There is much to be said about Ariel Sharon's storing opinions regarding the Bar Lev Line. Is there a specific reason there is no information about this on this wiki page?TM (talk) 02:37, 31 January 2014 (UTC)

I have added a section called Bar Lev Line. TM (talk) 21:48, 18 September 2014 (UTC)
