Hi RolandR[edit]

Hello RolandR, as you wrote to me, I can see that you removed my last edit. As I belive, regardless to my political views, the term 'occupied territories' is not accepted by all. Therefore I belive that writing the 'west bank' will be better alternative than the 'occupied territories'. BTW, the Israeli alternative is Judea and Samaria and not the west bank, but I chose to use the trem the 'west bank' as compromise. This expression is guaranteed to all and politically correct. Please change it back. — Preceding unsigned comment added by ברעזרא (talkcontribs) 03:49, 15 May 2015 (UTC) ברעזרא (talk) 03:51, 15 May 2015 (UTC)

The article originally included a citation from a book by Israeli legal academic David Kretzmer,The occupation of justice: the Supreme Court of Israel and the Occupied Territories. You altered this to The occupation of justice: the Supreme Court of Israel and the west bank. This is utter falsification, and I fail to see how you can justify it in any way. Similarly, the article included a statement from a B'Tselem report describing restrictions in Hebron as "among the harshest in the Occupied Territories". You altered this to "among the harshest in the west bank", maintaining the attribution to B'Tselem. This again is falsification of the source cited. There are more examples of your falsification of sources in these edits. Your personal preference does not take precedence over the actual usage by the sources cited. And in any case, the term "occupied territories" does not refer only to the West Bank, but to all the areas occupied by Israel in June 1967, including also the Gaza Strip, East Jerusalem and the Golan Heights. Your edit introduced deliberate errors into this article, and you would be well-advised not to repeat such behaviour. Of course I will not revert my edit. RolandR (talk) 10:13, 15 May 2015 (UTC)
I didn't noticed that I changed originality quotes. It wasn't my purpose. But on the other way, the term 'occupied Territories' Indicative of particular political view. Therefore, this term should replaced with the term 'west bank'. As long as it doesn't change originality quotes of course.

You changed the title of a book by accident? Yes, sure, whatever... RolandR (talk)
I was just trying to be nice and explain to you the source of this mistake. I do not understand why you do not believe it, and actually, I don't really care. The only thing that I do care is using the right expressions in this free encyclopedia.

Annayalla[edit]

Roland you live in Walthamstow I live in southgate enfield But I'm from annayalla Monaghan Which you keep getting involved in Do you work for Wikipedia od why is it your always editing annyalla — Preceding unsigned comment added by Reidzer84 (talkcontribs) 19:03, 26 May 2015 (UTC)

No, I am just an ordinary editor. As I have explained to you on your talk page, if you want to add information to the page you need to find a reliable secondary source which confirms what you are adding, and you have to establish that the information is significant enough to be added. In this case, you seem to be adding, without any independent sources at all, information of doubtful significance about yourself, and then suggesting that other editors contact the local museum to confirm this. But this is not how Wikipedia works; it is up to you to add the source, and to show the significance. Unsourced trivia will continue to be removed by other editors.
