BoNM - Israel.png The Israeli Barnstar of National Merit
Jaakobou, You have worked hard to attempt to improve wikipedia's Israel/Palestine related articles. You have made appropriate additions and changes, added sourced content, and dealt with the POV issues related to the Israeli-Palestinian conflict. I believe you have at many times tried to promote improvement and NPOV in many wikipedia articles, and have greatly improved many articles. You have had to deal with some issues in the past, have faced at times controversial sanctioning, but when you were wrong, you have learned from your mistakes, and improved your editing, and since, you have become a very good editor. For all you have done, you have won my respect, and are in my opinion very deserving of this barnstar. YahelGuhan (talk) 05:25, 19 July 2008 (UTC)


Please stop removing nableezy's comment from WP:ANEW. — Malik Shabazz Talk/Stalk 03:47, 1 August 2010 (UTC)

He's stepped on my edit, breaking my bullet structure, and I was in the process of reinserting them. The guy can't even wait 10 seconds to allow someone to finish adding a diff to his edit. I can't stress this enough, but a pressure cooker would handle the situation better.
Anyways, thanks for the note. I'm hoping you can extend my sentiments of the matter to Nableezy. JaakobouChalk Talk 03:56, 1 August 2010 (UTC)

Nableezy's talkpage[edit]

When I remove something from my talk page do not reinsert it. I think you already know that should not be done, so dont do it anymore. If you want to waste your time leaving a note you know will be removed you can, but dont reinsert it once removed. nableezy - 13:48, 31 October 2010 (UTC)

I can't be held accountable for an update overriding your comment removal.
p.s. it is poor form to mention someone by name and then remove their comment.[9]
Warm regards, JaakobouChalk Talk 15:36, 31 October 2010 (UTC)
PS, I dont care what you think is "poor form". One of two things happened. You either saw I removed the comment and reinserted making a small addition, or you immediately attempted to make the addition, in which case you would have gotten an edit conflict and then would have seen the comment had been removed. And then you saved it anyway. Either way, dont revert me on my own talk page. That is "poor form". nableezy - 16:14, 31 October 2010 (UTC)
I haven't reverted you. JaakobouChalk Talk 16:56, 31 October 2010 (UTC)


I've sent you an email. JaakobouChalk Talk 02:08, 8 November 2010 (UTC)

I'm not going to comment on the Gideon Levy article; I do not want to be involved in the dispute. -- tariqabjotu 02:12, 8 November 2010 (UTC)

Mitzpe Ha'ai[edit]

Mitzpe Ha'ai is the outpost pictured in the satellite photos here, as identified by Peace Now, and also named Givat Ha'ai. Are you really claiming that PN would be compelled by its "fringe" agenda to make this outpost up?--Carwil (talk) 21:50, 14 November 2010 (UTC)

Whether or not the outpost exists and is called by that name, it is not in the report Peace Now claimed as their source of information. We cannot use sources that repeatedly falsify information even if some of their input is correct.
p.s. Please don't address Peace Now publications as factual, they've been disproven countless times.
With respect, JaakobouChalk Talk 07:19, 15 November 2010 (UTC)

Stay off my talk page[edit]

You are not allowed to revert me on my own talk page to reinsert comments I have removed. You have done this multiple times now, so now let me make the following point to you crystal clear. I dont care what you think is "disruptive", "gaming", "uncivil" or really anything else. Accusing me of saying you are "lying" with a diff in which I do not say you are lying is just icing on the cake in that it demonstrates just how dishonest and intentionally disruptive you are. Stay off my talk page, there is nothing that I wish to discuss with you at all. I only do so on article talk pages because I have to. Thankfully, my own talk page is not a place where I have to suffer <redacted> quietly. Bye. nableezy - 15:56, 21 November 2010 (UTC)

AE refactor of Nableezy's filing[edit]

You're walking on very thin ice over there, and likely to see administrative action against yourself for refactoring Nableezy's filing. I highly suggest self-reverting. ← George talk 22:54, 27 November 2010 (UTC)

Do NOT edit my comments or change my complaint. If you wish to open a complaint against me or against me and Shuki feel free to do so. nableezy - 22:56, 27 November 2010 (UTC)

Hi. As you just participated in discussions on a closely related topic (also a current AfD re a Jewish list), which may raise some of the same issues, I'm simply mentioning that the following are currently ongoing: AfDs re lists of Jewish Nobel laureates, entertainers, inventors, actors, cartoonists, and heavy metal musicians. Best.--Epeefleche (talk) 08:58, 1 December 2010 (UTC)

Accusations of Jewish control of the media[edit]

Hi, Just to let you know that I support most of what you're arguing over there. I'm currently in a state of semi-retirement from WP and so am only making passing comments. I had tried to get JayJG involved but haven't followed up the reply he gave me. Basically, I think the anti-Semitic origins of much discussion of the relationship between Jews and the media needs to be highlighted and I regard the conspiratorial elements as crucial to this.--Peter cohen (talk) 20:26, 14 December 2010 (UTC)

Your AE request[edit]

Hi, this is to let you know that another administrator has asked you to explain why you should not be sanctioned for filing a frivolous request. If you choose not to offer the requested explanation, you may be made subject to sanctions.  Sandstein  20:50, 19 April 2011 (UTC)

Arbitration enforcement warning: Arab-Israeli conflict[edit]

Hello. For the reasons explained by another administrator and I at WP:AE#Tiamut (permalink), you are warned not to make clearly meritless requests for enforcement, especially requests that make obvious misrepresentations of fact. Thanks,  Sandstein  06:07, 20 April 2011 (UTC)

Motion regarding Wikipedia:Requests for arbitration/West Bank - Judea and Samaria[edit]

By motion of the Arbitration Committee voted on at requests for amendment,

The editing restrictions placed on Nishidani (talk · contribs) in the West Bank - Judea and Samaria case are lifted effective at the passage of this motion. Nishidani is reminded that articles in the area of conflict, which is identical to the area of conflict as defined by the Palestine-Israel articles case, remain the subject of discretionary sanctions; should he edit within this topic area, those discretionary sanctions continue to apply.

For the Arbitration Committee, Hersfold (t/a/c) 17:35, 21 July 2011 (UTC)

There is an item omited that I would like inserted

This is the source of the omission Scroll down to Grey Shirts Trial

"The trial, which opened in July 1934, was heard in the Eastern Cape Divi­sion of the Supreme Court in Grahamstown before the Judge President, Sir Thomas Graham. The local and over­seas press gave great prominence to the court proceedings. F.G. Reynolds K.C. (later a judge) assisted by Will Stuart (later a so-called ‘Native Repre­sentative’ in Parliament) appeared for the Rev. A. Levy of the Port Elizabeth Western Road Synagogue."

The suggestion is that you create a new sub heading between Switzerland and The Berne Trial, 1934–1935

Entitled "South Africa"

and give a brief summary of the Grey Shirts Trial

and give the source reference in the Reference Section at the end of the article

Present Status paragraph[edit]

This paragraph in the I-P conflict has been significantly altered by NightW. Yours thoughts please
Best Wishes AnkhMorpork (talk) 17:37, 13 February 2012 (UTC)

Jakabou, as I pointed out on the talk page your bold edit changed a passage that was factually correct and well sourced (though admittedly overlong and repetitive), to one that contained a glaring factual inaccuracy, and does not fully represent the cited sources. I cannot understand how you feel justified removing the neutrality tag with this still unresolved. Yes concision is an issue, but a clear factual inaccuracy unsupported by sources is far worse surely. Dlv999 (talk) 14:06, 14 February 2012 (UTC)

The reason I put up the tag was due to an overblown writeup on a single issue. Once that single issue was summarized into a single paragraph, I felt there was no more need for the POV tag as issues were presented in a fairly neutral manner. As far as the accuracy of the revision -- I'm not too attached to the words, but only to the spirit in which they were written (i.e. making the text legible). I have no objection if a consensus can arise regarding a rephrase. Regardless, I don't think the state of the text is quite as bad as you think -- but I might be wrong. From my understanding -- there was condemnation at the UN. The intricacies of that are not that important when we try to convey an idea (who criticized). What matters is that we allow readers to know that there was some type of condemnation. If I mis-explained the type of condemnation in question -- I have no objection to rephrase efforts that will be more accurate. I invite your collaboration and the collaboration of others to get the text to a better state. My idea was only about neutrally presenting the ideas in the section. I'm not even sure I'm interested in going deeper than that into the text -- the floor is yours to persuade others in why your concern is important. I'm not opposing your concern -- I didn't even dive into the material deep enough to understand it. I hope this helps you move forward with your concerns.

Incitement to vioence[edit]

Can you construct this paragraph; seeing as your version of the settlement criticism was generally accepted
Best Wishes AnkhMorpork (talk) 16:11, 14 February 2012 (UTC)

I'm a tad busy and am trying to stay away from heavy editing, but I'll try to give it a look in the upcoming day-two. JaakobouChalk Talk 19:34, 14 February 2012 (UTC)

Ahem, gentle reminder... Also is the zoological conspiracy theories contained in I-P ArbCom ruling, and if so, can you cite this in the talk page as I may have have inadvertently infringed the rules. Todah

AE result[edit]

The recent AE request against you has been closed without formal action. However, I am advising you that, should the edits for which you were reported to AE form part of a pattern that develops in the future, sanctions may be considered. If no such pattern emerges, you should hear nothing more about that AE request. Sincerely, HJ Mitchell | Penny for your thoughts? 04:10, 24 February 2012 (UTC)


Could you please remove your double posts from my sections? Thanks. -asad (talk) 18:52, 7 March 2012 (UTC)

Topic and interaction ban[edit]

For the reasons stated in this AE thread, and under the authority of Wikipedia:Arbitration Committee/Discretionary sanctions, as incorporated by WP:ARBPIA#Standard discretionary sanctions, you are banned indefinitely from all articles, discussions, and other content related to the Arab-Israeli conflict, broadly construed across all namespaces. Further, you are indefinitely prohibited from interacting with, or commenting on, Tiamut (talk · contribs), broadly construed, anywhere on Wikipedia, except in cases of legitimate and necessary dispute resolution, and are further indefinitely prohibited from seeking any admin action related to Tiamut (talk · contribs), broadly construed, either publicly or privately through any means, except through the arbitration enforcement process or by email to the Arbitration Committee.

These sanctions may be appealed at WP:AE after twelve months, and every twelve months thereafter. They may also be appealed to AE once within twelve months of their imposition, and may be appealed to the Arbitration Committee at any time. T. Canens (talk) 04:16, 8 March 2012 (UTC)

I apologize for creating such a fuss about statements I find extremely offensive. JaakobouChalk Talk 08:50, 8 March 2012 (UTC)
Jaakobou, this was a bad block, to say the least WP:POLEMIC is clear in what action to take, sadly, the admins decided to turn a blind eye to it. It wouldn't be the first time at least on admin's turned a blind eye to that particular policy.

Whoa! WTF? You deserve more respect than that. So they finally got you and it was a quickie over the holiday too. Take a break, it's good for your health. IMO, you've done well. --Shuki (talk) 20:48, 8 March 2012 (UTC)
You presented your case in a dignified coherent manner despite the shenanigans of what was patently a kangaroo court. It was a pleasure collaborating with you on various topics and I hope you are still somehow able to provide your input. Than you for keeping the Hamans at bay.
Best Wishes AnkhMorpork (talk) 22:02, 8 March 2012 (UTC)

March 2012[edit]

To enforce an arbitration decision, you have been blocked from editing for a period of 1 month for blatant violation of your topic ban and persistent battleground behavior here. Once the block has expired, you are welcome to make useful contributions. If you believe this block is unjustified, please read the guide to appealing arbitration enforcement blocks and follow the instructions there to appeal your block. T. Canens (talk) 14:23, 15 March 2012 (UTC)

Notice to administrators: In a March 2010 decision, the Committee held that "Administrators are prohibited from reversing or overturning (explicitly or in substance) any action taken by another administrator pursuant to the terms of an active arbitration remedy, and explicitly noted as being taken to enforce said remedy, except: (a) with the written authorization of the Committee, or (b) following a clear, substantial, and active consensus of uninvolved editors at a community discussion noticeboard (such as WP:AN or WP:ANI). If consensus in such discussions is hard to judge or unclear, the parties should submit a request for clarification on the proper page. Any administrator that overturns an enforcement action outside of these circumstances shall be subject to appropriate sanctions, up to and including desysopping, at the discretion of the Committee."

Another outrageous decision by Wikipedia's biased administrators. Years of laboring on Wikipedia and trying to collaborate with extremists just thrown away like it was nothing. Rather than trying to understand the concerns of pro-Israel editors that something may be a polemic and insulting, they merely give pro-Israel editors and their concerns the big FU(K YOU. Why not just let the Jihadists and the Palestine supporters and the garden variety antisemite just take over the area entirely? Oh wait, I forgot. They already did. One decent editor after another is forced out. Jaakabou, I suggest you get a life outside of this antisemitic, Jihadist environment. You will find your personal health improves. Oh and for the record, there are some people who appreciate the work you've done, though most are probably no longer editing themselves. — Preceding unsigned comment added by (talk) 15:50, 15 March 2012 (UTC)
