Comment[edit]

user: Imad marie continues to remove the age of the subject.[1][2] its quite elementary. if sources in 2010 say he currently is 32 that means he was born somewhere around 1978. Not sure if being contentious about this issue is silly or vandalism. More input requested. Thanks, --brewcrewer (yada, yada) 04:12, 8 March 2010 (UTC)

... and the source saying he's 30 is from 2008. it all makes sense when you do the math. not something that we should be wasting out time with.--brewcrewer (yada, yada) 04:14, 8 March 2010 (UTC)
First, I'll just ignore the "vandalism" comment and AGF here.
Second, why are you so keen to include the age? The sources don't explicitly mention the age, why should we do the calculations?
What if the guy was born December 1977? then he is 32 years and 4 months old.
Lastly, I do not think we should add the word "Sheikh", it's really un-encyclopedic. We don't have to use every word written in the sources. Imad marie (talk) 10:10, 8 March 2010 (UTC)
You were right, Mosab was born in 1978. I added the fact with its ref. Imad marie (talk) 21:25, 8 March 2010 (UTC)
Someone may wish to add an infobox, with the year-of-birth-and-age template included.--Epeefleche (talk) 05:24, 14 July 2010 (UTC)

renovation of the article[edit]

the way facts are referenced to old news-article, seems to me anachronistic or outdated, since all facts are open to read in his book. I suggest to collect the relevant/important news all to External links --Micha2 (talk) 21:29, 15 May 2010 (UTC)

I would suggest using both the book, new articles, and old articles, and rather than just putting them in ELs to actually use them as refs to support existing text and new text that you may think appropriate after reading the sources. Best.--Epeefleche (talk) 05:26, 14 July 2010 (UTC)

Nationality?[edit]

I just saw that hte article claims he is a Palestinian-American. He is not an American. If he was, why should he try to get asylum in the US and face deportation? That would not make any sense... I'm changing that real quick... —Preceding unsigned comment added by Janet1983 (talkcontribs) 20:08, 25 June 2010 (UTC)

Bibliography[edit]

The section labeled Bibliography, shoud it not instead be labeled 'Biography'? — Preceding unsigned comment added by 99.50.230.48 (talk) 04:22, 24 August 2012 (UTC)

No, it is a list of books written by the subject. See the Wiktionary definition. --gråb whåt you cån (talk) 16:46, 8 September 2012 (UTC)
