Implicit POV[edit]

Per the ongoing discussion at the main article, we need to ensure that WP:BALASPS is followed at this template. This template suggests that the first main article regarding the exodus is the 1948 war, which appears to be a clear attempt at "linkage". Including UNGA 194 raises the same POV concern. It doesn't mention anywhere the colonisation and decolonisation of the Maghreb, which was a very significant factor according to all accounts. It does mention Nazis and the Arab world, which is obvious POV - particularly given that topic's limited direct relevance to the exodus. And under key events it gives too much weighting to persecution, and not enough weighting to all the other relevant push and pull factors in each country (see broader discussion at the main article talk page).

Does anyone have any suggestions re how to fix this?

Either we create articles on the exodus in every country (a joint project for the future?), or we create articles on all the push and pull factors, or in the absence of currently being able to bring such balance, we remove the persecution-related articles temporarily. I have implemented the latter for now. Oncenawhile (talk) 21:25, 30 April 2014 (UTC)
And to deal with the "articles on the exodus in every country", I have now Anchor-linked to each of the most relevant "History of the Jews in #" articles. I hope you find this a good solution, and look forward to working with you on these when you are back. Oncenawhile (talk) 07:25, 4 June 2014 (UTC)
