Talk:Timeline of the Israeli–Palestinian conflict, 2015

There have been back and forth over the lead wording and sources for months now and it is about time to ask the wider community to give it a look.

The lead as proposed by some editors is-

This is a list of individual incidents and statistical breakdowns of incidents of violence, including property damage and expropriation,[1][2][3][4][5][6] involving a violation of rights,[7] taking place between Israel and Palestinians in 2015 as part of the ongoing Israeli–Palestinian conflict, but exclusive of particular events that fall within the parameters of any full outbreak of war hostilities.
Housing demolitions are regarded by Israel as justified as a deterrent response to acts of terrorism or on the grounds that the houses in question in East Jerusalem, and the occupied West Bank were built without permits from the Israeli Military Authority governing the West Bank.[8] The practice is condemned as discriminatory,[9] a form of collective punishment, sometimes as a war crime in violation of international law, by the United Nations, many human rights organizations,[10] the United Nations,[11][12] and scholars such as Meron Benvenisti and Saree Makdisi.[13] Israel has clashed with the EU's funding and construction of buildings for Palestinian residents in Area C, and ordered the demolition of 400 units saying that under international law, such structures do require Israeli permits.[14]

The Israeli-Palestinian conflict has greatly complicated this dispute. While those on one side interpret Palestinian acts of violence (particularly those suicide bombers that kill Israeli civilians) as clear acts of terrorism, those on the other side interpret Palestinian resistance to Israeli occupation as a legitimate act of national struggle. Conversely, while one side interprets Israeli policies in the occupied territories as state terrorism, the other side considers Israel to be acting in self-defense. Each side wants a definition of terrorism that implicates only the other side.'

The motivation for demolishing these homes is purely political, and racially informed: to either drive the Palestinians out of the country altogether (the "quiet transfer") or to confine the four million residents of the West Bank, East Jerusalem and Gaza to small, crowded, impoverished and disconnected enclaves . .Allocating land for military training is not confined to unpopulated areas but can occur in the heart of Palestinian residential communities. In the remaining 30% of the land, intended construction is conditional on complementarity with a plan endorsed by the Israeli Civil Administration, of which less than 1% satisfies this requirement. Thus Palestinians are faced with the choice of building irregularly or leaving their communities. This policy is violently enforced with the demolition of homes and other infrastructure such as schools and health clinics being a regular occurrence.'

Israel's demolition of Palestinian homes,' Amnesty International, June 2010:'Palestinians living under Israeli occupation in East Jerusalem and the rest of the west bank face such tight restrictions on what they can build that their right to adequate housing is being violated. the Israeli authorities condemn as "illegal" homes and other structures built without the permits that they control and rarely allow to Palestinian residents, and then order their destruction. Demolition crews, accompanied by security officials, may arrive at any time, giving families little notice or opportunity to remove their possessions. Under Israeli military law applied to Palestinians in most of the west bank, evicted families are not rehoused or compensated. So, those evicted would face homelessness and destitution were it not for relatives, friends and charities. Palestinians in East Jerusalem fare little better under the Israeli civil authorities. .Violations of the right to adequate housing experienced by Palestinians in the oPt are both a symptom of the wider human rights violations to which Palestinians are subject and a barrier to their achievement of other human rights.. .As the occupying power, the actions of Israel in the oPt are also bound by the fourth Geneva Convention relative to the Protection of Civilian Persons in time of War to which Israel is a signatory. Article 53 prohibits destruction of property that is not justified by military necessity.'

According to a statement by the Israeli Committee Against Home Demolitions, 'With three unusual exceptions, in the past 30 years NO Jewish house non the West Bank has ever been threatened with demolition. . Israeli settlers are citizens of Israel and are subject only to Israeli law. None of the planning guidelines, procedures for obtaining building permits from the civilian administration or house demolition penalties applies to them. The first 21 Jewish settlements on the West Bank were done so without plans or permits and, indeed, against the stated policies and wishes of the Israeli government.'

Norton & Company, 2010 p.18:'Property expropriation is based on an Israeli reading of the Ottoman law of 1858, which is used to declare that all lands not registered as private at the time of Israel’s conquest of the West Bank in the 1967 Six Day War are public lands. B'Tselem has remarked that, even were that interpretation correct, the lands declared state lands are ‘public property belonging to the lawful residents of the West Bank, and as occupying power Israel is required to administer them for the benefit of that public, rather than denying Palestinians access to those lands while allocating to them to exclusive Jewish use and settlement.'

Other editors have argued the lead and quotes in sources are unnecessarily long, not NPOV, WP:UNDUE and covers Housing demolitions which should get a separate list.

Various discussions on the subject can be found above in talk page. 21:18, 21 May 2015 (UTC)

Talk:Serb Democratic Party (Bosnia and Herzegovina) {{rfcquote|text= I moved page from "Serb" to "Serbian" few days ago, under explanation that this is an official translation. However, I was reverted by Zoupan. I'll copy/paste his explanation for the revert he left on my talk page.

I think that the proper use for Serb minority parties is "Serb" and not "Serbian". However, if the party uses "Serbian" in English, I support moving it to the latter. Their official page is only in Serbian language.

These use "Serb Democratic Party":

I think you should revert your moves.--Zoupan 20:16, 21 May 2015 (UTC)

Talk:2014 Israeli shelling of UNRWA Gaza shelters

Should the lead include this statement?

During the 2014 Israel-Gaza conflict, many Palestinians fled their homes after warnings by Israel or due to air strikes or fighting in the area. An estimated 200,000 people (10% of Gaza's population) took shelter in UNRWA schools.

Talk:Death of Freddie Gray

Undisputed RS material being removed because it's "unhelpful." I take issue with such rationale. The text being repeatedly blanked:

Marilyn Mosby, the state's attorney for Baltimore City, says Gray had five requests for medical assistance ignored by the police. One officer reportedly diagnosed Gray with "jailitis" — an apparent faked illness.[1]

Talk:A Voice for Men

Question 1:

Should commentators describing the site as "hateful" and "misogynistic" be named individually and if so, is it appropriate to identify the feminist critics as feminists given the anti-feminist nature of the site?

Question 2: Is the size and detail of the criticism section appropriate given the breadth of citable criticism? If we were to expand it, which of the following tests for inclusion best applies:

  • Criticism raises an issue not previously raised
  • Criticism raises no new issues but either the author or RS is particularly notable
  • Criticism meets basic RS standards
  • Other

Talk:2015 Kumanovo shootings

Should the the title of this article be Battle of Kumanovo (2015), 2015 Kumanovo shootings, or 2015 Kumanovo clashes?
  • Comment: I support the original title, the one I have made - 2015 Kumanovo clashes. The reason is simple. Kumanovo shooting would mean there was a minor incident, where a lone wolf got into some building and started shooting, for example like in the 2015 Zvornik police station shooting. Therefore, the name would be misleading. The second name, Battle of Kumanovo, is also misleading, but in an opposite direction. It would mean there was a major confrontation, which it wasn't. There were clashes, and only this term is appropriate for this event. --AnulBanul (talk) 23:40, 9 May 2015 (UTC)

Talk:Central Intelligence Agency

To reduce page length, a WP:SPINOUT was created that moved content from Central Intelligence Agency to History of the Central Intelligence Agency. This has now been reverted twice by one user. Per the editing guideline WP:SIZERULE, articles over 100 kilobytes should "almost certainly should be divided". The article is presently at 172 97 kilobytes readable prose size. Users in threads above on the talk page have suggested that this split of the History section would serve to functionally reduce the page's size and better-organize it, while others have opposed this. Some have also suggested additional various means to reduce the page's length. North America1000 14:25, 7 May 2015 (UTC)

Talk:Death of Freddie Gray

The majority of the sources describe the protagonists as "white" or "black", but there are concerns that these distinctions offer an unneeded contrast, and arguments for advancing the use of "African American and "Caucasian" as more neutral have been voiced.

Comment with:

  • (A) for "white" and "black"
  • (B) for "Caucasian" and "African American"

  • (A) - Best is to follow the sources rather than our personal preferences. - Cwobeel (talk) 21:28, 4 May 2015 (UTC)

Talk:Adam Walsh Child Protection and Safety Act

 :::As you are avoiding clarity, which seems to be your chosen tactics on these disputes, we are once again in standstill in a situation where there are no paths available for consensus building, since no one else seems to be too interested anymore. I'll post Rfc to find if I really have such a severe bias that it prevents me of seeing some problems of the proposed edit above that are visible and obvious to everyone else but me.ViperFace (talk) 09:15, 28 April 2015 (UTC)

Talk:Scott Walker (politician)

Hello. There has been a bit of dispute regarding some edits I made today to this article. This is the article just before I started editing it. Basically, I created a new page, Political positions of Scott Walker and moved some of the Gubernatorial stuff over there. After reaching consensus that that article was more about his time as Governor than his political positions, I created the Governorship of Scott Walker article. I have moved quite a bit of content from the main SW article to those two and have added quite a bit of new content to those articles as well. I left summaries behind at the main article and am trying to keep everything straight. (I've done a lot of going back and forth between pages.) Most of the political articles I've worked on have gone through this process (Everything from Rand Paul to Jeb Bush to Hillary Clinton) and I think it's better. Another editor was concerned with the massive change. Basically, is 3 articles better than 1? Should we return everything back to the main page (keeping some of the c/e I did) or keep it at three separate pages. (I apologize for the length of the explanation... It's been a long day of editing!) PrairieKid (talk) 06:05, 27 April 2015 (UTC)

  • Weak Delete - The problem is all of the coverage, including all of those links above, are in response to a single publication by Mother Jones and all published within the the span of a few days. WP:GNG requires coverage over time. — Rhododendrites talk \\ 22:51, 17 May 2015 (UTC)
That is not correct, please see WP:N#TEMP:

Notability is not temporary; once a topic has been the subject of "significant coverage" in accordance with the general notability guideline, it does not need to have ongoing coverage.

If this was an article about an event, than WP:PERSISTENCE would be required, but this is an article about an organization, and thus WP:GNG & WP:ORG apply.--RightCowLeftCoast (talk) 20:30, 19 May 2015 (UTC)
