Hopefully we can have polite, pleasant and constructive discussions here.

Ha de[edit]

With regard to the Saturday night special, "Jews and communism" might refer to Jewish Bolshevism and I do not have any issue with the articles existance. Bat Ye'or is surely controversial, but does it mean to exclude her in that case? Btw, I easily could debunk Bat Ye'ors notion of Eurabia, if you like me to do so, as Eurabia (compare Atlantropa has been a topic and sort of technological dream in the 1920 - based on the French Maghreb and its pied noirs.

Guten Abend! As for "Jews and communism", you may not be familiar with that case; but it was a problematic article that many considered anti-Semittic and it got deleted. The Jewish Bolshevism article in some way deals with the same topic, but as a conspiracy theory, which is a totally different framing. I don't think it's a direct and good parallell to the Saturday/Sunday article, but I have been reminded of that article while thinking about the current AfD because there is some of the same concerns. I don't think Bat Ye'or is a reliable source for Wikipedia; this can be sorted out at the article's talk page; I mentioned it because I think it demonstrates how sensitive and easily controversial the topic is. My basic point was that I think the AfD discussion was too complex for a snow close. Beste Grüße, Iselilja (talk) 18:59, 2 October 2014 (UTC)
Youre welcome. Recently I have written the article about sociologist Reiner Grundmann, which did a lot about Marx and about "Framing (social sciences)" as well. I think the right framing decides wether an article should or may be kept. I was reminded of Eurabia, which is the 'conspiracy theory', and Eurafrique (redlink), which served as a major base of the 1950ies European unification policy. To quote Marx: "Hegel remarks somewhere[*] that all great world-historic facts and personages appear, so to speak, twice. He forgot to add: the first time as tragedy, the second time as farce."
