2008–2009 Anti-Israeli riots in Norway2008–2009 riots in Norway — The name is superficial and WP:UNDUE. Some of the rioters were "Anti-Israeli", many were general troublemakers, and many were peaceful and not anti-anything. Relisting to clarify topic, see below.

I'm not quite sure how rioters can be peaceful and not anti-anything, nor how the proposed new title could possibly cover the activities of such people. Relisting in the hope that someone will clarify exactly what the intended topic is. Andrewa (talk) 01:16, 14 March 2011 (UTC)

  • Oppose. Support renaming to →2008–2009 Anti-Israel riots in Norway. After reading through the article, leaving out the "Anti-Israel" would be misleading. Title should be "Anti-Israel" per WP:PRECISE.—Biosketch (talk) 02:25, 19 March 2011 (UTC)
  • Support some change, not sure exactly what. Surely "Oslo" rather than "Norway", and there's no need to capitalize "Anti" if it's not at the start. Other than that I don't see anything terribly wrong with the present title, though something like "...Israeli embassy protests..." might be clearer (probably not - they weren't all at the embassy). --Kotniski (talk) 11:13, 22 March 2011 (UTC)

"Rebellion" label[edit]

The infobox labels of "rebellion" and "rebels" are inaccurate. A rebellion is an organized movement aimed at displacing the rule of a government throughout a certain area, not anti-Israeli protests. Unless anyone can give me a reason why, I'm changing the terms to "rioters" and "riot." J1.grammar natz (talk) 23:26, 17 July 2011 (UTC)
