Fair use rationale for Image:Vanuunu-Article.jpg[edit]

Nuvola apps important.svg

Image:Vanuunu-Article.jpg is being used on this article. I notice the image page specifies that the image is being used under fair use but there is no explanation or rationale as to why its use in this Wikipedia article constitutes fair use. In addition to the boilerplate fair use template, you must also write out on the image description page a specific explanation or rationale for why using this image in each article is consistent with fair use.

Please go to the image description page and edit it to include a fair use rationale. Using one of the templates at Wikipedia:Fair use rationale guideline is an easy way to insure that your image is in compliance with Wikipedia policy, but remember that you must complete the template. Do not simply insert a blank template on an image page.

If there is other fair use media, consider checking that you have specified the fair use rationale on the other images used on this page. Note that any fair use images lacking such an explanation can be deleted one week after being tagged, as described on criteria for speedy deletion. If you have any questions please ask them at the Media copyright questions page. Thank you.

On Steven Emerson[edit]


The above shows that Steven Emerson was deliberately spreading disinformation on A B-M.

All references to this were removed by a biased administrator. --Wool Bridge (talk) 23:59, 10 April 2008 (UTC)

Treacherous Alliance[edit]

Practically everything Ben-Menashe said about the Iran/Israel- US relations, has been re-iterated by this man in his new book Treacherous Alliance. [2] Not that it would make any difference to this article which tries to portray him as a fantasist. --Wool Bridge (talk) 13:16, 20 April 2008 (UTC)

Dubious sourcing[edit]

Ari Ben-Menashe#Fire-bombing states:

In December 2012 Ben-Menashe's lavish home in Montreal was badly damaged by a firebomb,[1] the day before Ben-Menashe was due to fly to Washington to attend a scheduled interview between Robert Parry and "a senior Israeli intelligence figure".[2] The official concluded that the attack was a message from the Israeli authorities to stay silent, and cancelled the interview.[2] The attack also destroyed many of Ben-Menashe's documents, including old passports, which might have provided supporting evidence for Ben-Menashe's statements.[2]

The second source is Robert Parry's Consortium News which, in an earlier discussion in WP:RSN, was judged to be unreliable. The citation here is particularly troublesome, too, for two primary reasons. First, Parry posted the claim on Saturday, December 8, 2012[3], but strangely did not mentioned it in his initial post about the arson on Monday, December 3, 2012[4] or in a follow-up post on Wednesday, December 5, 2012 in which he stated that Ben-Menashe "did not want to speculate about who was behind the attack".[5] Secondly, the claim that Ben-Menashe was scheduled to fly to Washington to attend an interview with Parry and an Israeli official is not reported in any other source. Ben-Manashe and Parry are both known for making WP:REDFLAG claims, so there needs to be reliable sourcing for these statements. - Location (talk) 05:07, 7 August 2015 (UTC)
