Jassem Alwan[edit]

While this is not ment as a criticism of the article, which is very good, I was thinking of merging, I think the article is redundant. The person is barely notable, and he is known for one event only, the failed 1963 Syrian coup d'état... Wouldn't it be wiser to delete, or move the article and create and article for failed 1963 coup? You could say that two articles are notable, but those articles would be highly identical, since writings on the coup are scarce to begin with... I'll leave this for you to answer, since you created the article.. --TIAYN (talk) 22:51, 30 August 2013 (UTC)

I have to disagree. While his 1963 coup attempt against the Baath is arguably the most notable part of his life, his biography warrants an article on its own. He led a prior failed pro-UAR coup in 1962 from Aleppo, Homs and Deir ez-Zor (joined by Hamad Ubayd, Umran, and Luay Atassi) and his role as commander of the Qatana base during the UAR period is interesting. Furthermore, his evasion of and eventual capture by the authorities following his failed 1963 coup, the deliberations surrounding his trial and pardon, and the opposition role he played following his exile, including collaboration with the guy who stamped out his coup (Amin al-Hafiz), his return to Syria after reconciliation with the regime and the alleged attack against him during the civil war are all notable. Also, I think while he was a military instructor, Shishakli tasked him to groom and promote Sunni officers and keep out Alawites, Ismailis and Druze from the mid-level corps (I don't have full access to the source though).
However, I have no problem moving general/redundant information out of the "1963 coup attempt" section into the main 1963 coup article. Afterward, we could add a hatnote to the section linking "See also 1963 Syrian coup d'état#Immediate aftermath". --Al Ameer (talk) 01:48, 31 August 2013 (UTC)

Nasser follow-up[edit]

I haven't been able to keep up with your Nasser edits, especially as the section rearrangements make a mess of the diffs and would require re-readings of entire sections. You've done great, diligent work as I've followed it for over a month, and I've enjoyed working with you. As academic year projects begin to require my attention, I'll be unwatching the page and dropping back from the regular copyedit, but give me a ping if you'd like me to look over any language in particular. I am no longer watching this page—whisperback if you'd like a response czar · · 16:41, 1 September 2013 (UTC)

Thank you Czar, I greatly appreciate your efforts, which I believe have significantly enhanced the quality of the article and its readability. I know I've been jumbling the text a bit, but I've tried to be careful of maintaining the quality in the process. I'm pretty much in the same boat as you, as far as college is concerned, having less available time as the year progresses. I nominated the article for A-class a week ago. Hopefully it passes, but whatever the outcome, I'll nominate it for FAC when the review is complete. If there's anything specific I feel would benefit from your attention, I'll certainly let you know. Cheers!

1956 referendums[edit]

Hello Al Ameer son. Thanks for expanding the Egyptian referendum, 1956, but could you restore "referendums" instead of "referenda"? We use "referendums" as standard on Wikipedia (see {{Egyptian elections}} or WP:Elections and referendums. Thanks, Number 57 15:37, 3 September 2013 (UTC)

Thanks for pointing that out, didn't know that was the norm here. Cheers, --Al Ameer (talk) 15:45, 3 September 2013 (UTC)
No worries :) Number 57 15:50, 3 September 2013 (UTC)

Tabbouleh and its categories[edit]

Hi htere. You should look at things from the point of view of a reader who does know anything in the subject, except wishes to search for lebanese food articles from within Category:Lebanese cuisine. Perhaps for that reason alone, that category (as well as the Arab cuisine one) should be in the article, and not the parent category, which, frankly, rather fewer people even realize pertains to Lebanon. --04:13, 9 September 2013 (UTC)

You may be right, but then what's the point of having a "Levantine cuisine" category if we just add Lebanese, Syrian and Palestinian cuisine categories to the article? Anyway, I have no strong feelings either way. --Al Ameer (talk) 17:01, 9 September 2013 (UTC)
There probably is not a point. So may I restore Lebanese? In fact, I was looking for tabbouleh precisely that way. :) --Mareklug talk 18:24, 9 September 2013 (UTC)
Yea, go ahead. If there's any dispute, it could be discussed at the talk page. --Al Ameer (talk) 18:29, 9 September 2013 (UTC)

Turan-shah[edit]

Hi Al Ameer son thanks for looking at the changes I made on the Turan-shah page. Since making my edit I've realised that I need to create a disambiguation page to distinguish between Shams ad-Din Turanshah and al Muazzam Turanshah. Once I have done that I will go back to the Turan-shah page and amend the spellings. The Turan-shah spelling is nonstandard and a disambiguation page would be useful for encyclopedia users, I think. I will also be adding pages on other Ayyubid rulers over the next few months. Then on to the Fatimids.........

All the best

mccapra — Preceding unsigned comment added by Mccapra (talkcontribs) 12:44, 9 September 2013 (UTC)

Yea a disambig page would be useful. Good luck. --Al Ameer (talk) 17:05, 9 September 2013 (UTC)

Hi I have now created a disambiguation page for 'Turanshah' so I'd like to amend the spelling of the name here from the non-standard Turan-shah to the standard Turanshah with a reference to the disambiguation page. Do you agree? Thanks Mccapra (talk) 21:44, 29 September 2013 (UTC)

That's fine with me. --Al Ameer (talk) 17:02, 1 October 2013 (UTC

Lovely many thanks. I am working systematically on the Ayyubids so if you spot anything else I can change to improve the articles please let me know. All the best Mccapra (talk) 09:21, 2 October 2013 (UTC)

Bitar, Nasserite coalition cabient[edit]

I've finished the section on the coalition government, you can begin you're work on the planned "Cabinet of Syria (March 1963–May 1963)" now, if you want. However, it would prefer the title, "Bitar's first cabinet"... Which is more normal, see Blair ministry, Stoltenberg's Second Cabinet, Second Merkel cabinet etc etc etc.. But this is you're choice to make. --TIAYN (talk) 11:02, 14 September 2013 (UTC)

Nice work with Bitar. I'm actually having second thoughts about starting that article, at least for the time being, since it lasted only for a couple months. It's still relatively notable though. I started Abd al-Wahhab Hawmad and am working on Hani al-Hindi. After I finish with the latter and Nihad al-Qasim, I might start the article, although it'll pretty much be a table listing the ministers, their portfolios and party affiliations. We need to create articles on Yusuf al-Zu'ayyin, Ibrahim Makhus and Ahmed al-Suwaydani sometime in the future as well since they seem to be have been relatively important officials. --Al Ameer (talk) 18:23, 14 September 2013 (UTC)
Honestly, when it comes to the Ba'ath, Wikipedia is missing way to many entries, just look at the lists for Syrian RC and the Iraqi RC.. Would there be a point of creating the RC for the Jordanese and the Lebanese Ba'ath prior to the 23rd February 1966.. John Devlin lists all the known members... WP is currently missing an entry on Ali Salih al-Sadi, probably one of the most important figures of early, pre-23 February 1966 Ba'ath history... But I think we should focus primarily on the bigger articles for the time being, considering that the articles on Bitar, Hafiz, Jadid, Assad, Jundi etc are in bad shape. --TIAYN (talk) 19:45, 14 September 2013 (UTC)

Check-in[edit]

Hey—I've continued to follow your Nasser work sporadically from afar and it's good stuff. I was going through your A-class review when something hit me that I thought you'd appreciate. I remembered that during the copyedit you would hide {{harvnb}} templates inside ref tags and I didn't think twice about it since I didn't use those types of footnotes. I have since been using {{sfn}}, which is the same except that you don't have to hide the template in a ref tag because it auto-generates a footnote. What's more is that repeated uses of the same page are grouped, so you don't have to manually manage every instance of Aburish p. 23 and can just use the short footnote template everywhere and it'll take care of grouping multiple instances of the same author and page. Anyway, this may save you considerable bits and some sanity if you so choose to reformat Nasser's refs (or for future projects). Take care czar  23:59, 23 October 2013 (UTC)

Dear, I got your point. However, the removed ones does not reach up to 90% as you have mentioned.

Re:One source tag[edit]

Hi, but according to WP guideline and Wikipedia:Articles with a single source, quote: "a subject for which only one source can be cited is unlikely to merit a standalone article". Not to mention that the only source given in that articles is a dead link, so in practice they are unreferenced articles (I cannot even find that sources in Archive.org). So, sorry, but unless an administrator or someone from the WP staff could answer us about this (we are not the only ones who had this doubt), I will revert your changes, as the adding of the one source tag is reversible, can be easily resolved (by adding a single source more) and dont disrupt the article. Regards,--HCPUNXKID (talk) 16:28, 10 January 2014 (UTC)

Ok, I accept your reasonable point of view (hope all editors & administrators could act like you), but that should be stated somewhere so that people could know it. Regards,--HCPUNXKID (talk) 22:53, 14 January 2014 (UTC)

Non-free rationale for File:Birwa Church.jpg[edit]

Thanks for uploading or contributing to File:Birwa Church.jpg. I notice the file page specifies that the file is being used under non-free content criteria, but there is not a suitable explanation or rationale as to why each specific use in Wikipedia is acceptable. Please go to the file description page, and edit it to include a non-free rationale.

If you have uploaded other non-free media, consider checking that you have specified the non-free rationale on those pages too. You can find a list of 'file' pages you have edited by clicking on the "my contributions" link (it is located at the very top of any Wikipedia page when you are logged in), and then selecting "File" from the dropdown box. Note that any non-free media lacking such an explanation will be deleted one week after they have been tagged, as described on criteria for speedy deletion. If the file is already gone, you can still make a request for undeletion and ask for a chance to fix the problem. If you have any questions, please ask them at the Media copyright questions page.

Palestine portal - help?[edit]

Hi Al Ameer son,

I am trying to add the new "Popular pages" list to the Palestine project page, but I can't get it to work.

I've had to amend your "/Definition Layout" tab to make it fit nicely, but as soon as I swap it in the page doesn't work any more.

Just wondering if you have any idea how I can fix it.

Oncenawhile (talk) 18:41, 9 March 2014 (UTC)

I think it's not working because the "Popular pages" page is way too large to fit within that template. I wouldn't know how to make it work unfortunately. Unless you know of any admins with more knowledge on these matters, I would ask for help at this page. Or you can get rid of the current layout system and make a new one. I'm glad someone's finally taking an interest in revamping the project. Keep up the great work! --Al Ameer (talk) 01:44, 10 March 2014 (UTC)

I was blocked without warning or explanation close to two years ago. My blocker said I was a sockpuppet. I never did that, I abandoned a single prior account for privacy reasons. I felt the need to be honest and upfront about this in my very first edit, here: [4]. Ironically my blocker took this as ammunition to block me as a sockpuppet.

I tried the usual avenues of appeal but found the deck stacked against me at every turn. In my opinion, the administrators that monitor the block appeals notification page reject an extremely high percentage. None would listen to me, and most just say "sock," or "I don't believe you," or "you must never criticize your blocker." I tried Arbcom, who declined without explanation. WP:BASC, the Arbcom subgroup charged with considering block appeals, had a reject rate of literally 92 percent the last time it released its statistics.

I've tried other things but I've somehow amassed a bunch of administrative participants that follow me around everytime I try anything, saying "block him, block him, block him." It is like a gang of schoolyard bullies chasing the awkward new kid around the playground yelling at him. I can't shake them off, they won't go away and they sabotage any attempt I make to get unblocked.

Anyhow this runs on too long. You can read the latest thing I tried, an RFC/U, here: [5]. It's long but tells you the story. My fan club sabotaged it with a lot of negative commentary. Those people making the bad comments are largely not normal RFC/U participants, rather they followed me there from my talkpage they watchlisted, so they can criticize me more. I never sockpuppeted. If you want to know the worst thing I ever did, a lot of people seem to think it's this: [6]. The part where I call Nomoskedasticity a provocateur and so forth. I am not proud of that, it was a WP:CIV violation but the back-story there is that I had just a day before read Youreallycan plaintively ask Nomoskedasticity to leave him alone after two years of wikihounding. That's here: [7]. I was uncivil, but I viewed myself as confronting a bully. I was shocked at the behavior that occurs at WP:AN/ANI, but I wasn't really *saying* that Nomoskedasticity never contributed anything constructive, I was genuinely *asking* that. I slipped, okay, but a fair review of my editing history shows a constructive editor. I shouldn't be blocked forever for saying that to Nomoskedasticity.

To wrap this up: I need a defender who is an admin. Somebody willing to stick up for me, and say "lets follow policies in handling him." This is because I have so many attackers and suspicion-mongers that sabotage every community process I try to undertake. I don't like to ask for a defender, but without administrator buttons I'm at the mercy of any administrator, and there are several that have acted against me without any policy at all. I hope one or all three of you will help me. Thank you for even considering it. This is Colton Cosmic. 14:48, 18 March 2014 (UTC)

It's been a couple days. Can you tell me "yes," "no," or "I need more time to decide?" I am sorry to be impatient but I do not like being blocked. Will you unblock me if I agree to strictly follow all the rules? This is Colton Cosmic.

Disambiguation link notification for March 20[edit]

Hi. Thank you for your recent edits. Wikipedia appreciates your help. We noticed though that when you edited 1834 Arab revolt in Palestine, you added links pointing to the disambiguation pages Lydda, Gaza and Jewish Quarter (check to confirm | fix with Dab solver). Such links are almost always unintended, since a disambiguation page is merely a list of "Did you mean..." article titles. Read the FAQ • Join us at the DPL WikiProject.

mayor/governor[edit]

Re Nablus's mayor, there is a source contamination arguably because of functional ambigfuities in the administration and perhaps Arabic terminology. Maan for example rather consistently speaks of Jibril Al Bakri as the mayor, while other sources say he is the governor. The problem is, Hamas's candidate won the last election, i.e. Adly Yaish (in 2006, not 2005 I think, as his page suggests), so were Al Bakri now mayor one would have expected the transition to have been reported. Maan news agency could iron this one out, perhaps. Sometimes those people who are paid to be busy to gather up news (i.e. non-wikipedians) do respond to requests for clarification? Perhaps the Maan agency would? Cheers Nishidani (talk) 19:55, 20 March 2014 (UTC)

I'll look into the matter some more. I'll contact Maan in the meantime, hopefully I can get a response. Cheers --Al Ameer (talk) 05:04, 24 March 2014 (UTC)
Ok, apparently Ghassan Shakaa is the mayor, elected in October 2012 [8]. The article didn't say he officially won, but other sources confirm that he is in fact the mayor.2013, 2014. --Al Ameer (talk) 01:14, 25 March 2014 (UTC)

John Macqueen[edit]

Dear Al Ameer - I have just started an article about John Macqueen and it has been pointed out that I have misspelt his name. How can I change the article title? It should be a small "Q". Can you point me in the right direction for altering it? Many thanks. Padres Hana (talk) 11:36, 27 March 2014 (UTC)

I just went ahead and made the correction. For the future, if the name change/alteration is uncontroversial you can go ahead and move it yourself by clicking on the "Move" tab at the top right corner of the page. However, if there's already a redirect page with the same name as the intended destination then an administrator will have to perform the move. Cheers --Al Ameer (talk) 16:51, 27 March 2014 (UTC)

Sanur, Jenin[edit]

Hi again, According to my DYK-check, Sanur, Jenin now qualifies. A bit more on Jarrar Castle could possibly be added? Also, need page-number on Doumani, and Phillip year and reference, But such an historically important village should really be made a DYK, IMO,

Cheers, Huldra (talk) 17:27, 18 April 2014 (UTC)

Yes, DYK was my intention. I got some more info to add and I'll fill out all the refs too. --Al Ameer (talk) 18:40, 18 April 2014 (UTC)
P.S. Thanks for your additions by the way. Cheers --Al Ameer (talk) 18:42, 18 April 2014 (UTC)
On another note; I am trying to "walk" in the footsteps of Guerin, listing the places he visited here: User:Huldra/Guerin. It is slow work, especially in the South Hebron Hills, as so many places are not yet done. I wonder if you would care to start Anab al-Kabir? It is red-linked in the Hebron template, but it is (I think) a 1596 village + mentioned by Guerin and SWP. The same for Khirbet ad-Deir in the Hebron template; it would be very nice to have it done, so one could distinguish between the Hebron village by this name, and the Bethlehem one: Khirbet al-Deir.
(Guerin can be extremely frustrating; as I have mentioned on the top of User:Huldra/Guerin: he sometimes use the same name, spelled the same way, to denote different places. Though that is correct, in one sense, it is a "bit" easier when, by custom, Tayibe and Taybeh are spelled differently in English. According to index 406: Kh.ed-Deir is on pp 195, 320, 340, 357, 369.....but I suspect the name to refer to different places...)
Also, I find these 7- places in HA quite interesting; typically like Al-Ubeidiya: they seem to have changed between being a "settled" places, and not, up through the centuries. (PS: I "watch" your talk-page, no need to notify me about an answer ;)) Cheers, Huldra (talk) 16:22, 19 April 2014 (UTC)
I just nominated Sanur. I can create Anab al-Kabir, and maybe Khirbet al-Deir, later this week. --Al Ameer (talk) 14:19, 21 April 2014 (UTC)
  • Also Al-Ram, (an article you created way back in 2007) is not yet a DYK but could be expanded ..note that it has an old picture (Wilson, p.214) we could use. Still needs a lot of work; I have basically just started collecting some sources. Cheers, Huldra (talk) 23:52, 27 April 2014 (UTC)

Translating help[edit]

Hi Al Ameer son. I wanted to ask for help for translating an Arabic name to English. Can you tell me how do you spell "الفرافصة" in English? For example we say "عایشة" in English as "Aisha". Can you tell me please how can "الفرافصة" be spelled? Keivan.fTalk 11:29, 5 May 2014 (UTC)

(talk page stalker) It can be translirated as "al-Farafsa". I think Ameer can only speak, but not read or write in Arabic. Mohamed CJ (talk) 15:11, 5 May 2014 (UTC)

Israeli users try to steal history[edit]

Ayyubids[edit]

What is your opinion concerning these sources?[9] --Kansas Bear (talk) 22:52, 20 June 2014 (UTC)

I'm in no position to discount what a highly-circulated Turkish newspaper says, but for an article on history, we should rely on scholarly sources not newspaper articles. The new material added from the Zaman, while interesting, should be removed for now. If the information can be supported by scholarly sources, then that's a different discussion. As far as I can see, the consensus of scholarly sources say the Ayyubids were ethnic Kurds who were gradually assimilated into the Arabic culture. --Al Ameer (talk) 02:05, 21 June 2014 (UTC)

Difficult editors[edit]

There are major problems in the Talk page to article Kidnapping and murder of Mohammed Abu Khdeir, not the least of which is POV (esp. inclusion of unrelated material). One particular editor seems to be trying to hijack this article, even deciding he can remove material from reliable sources. I would love to engage in a meaningful discussion but it seems almost impossible with him. He is trying to enlist support from an Israeli moderator,[10] so for the sake of balance in the discussion, I think a Palestinian administrator should weigh in as well.
