Acronym as the main article title?[edit]

I just came across 'Ramatkal'. I think that this is a ridiculous and disrespectful title of an article. Look at the naming convention of Chief of Staff of the United States Army or Chairman of the Joint Chiefs of Staff. I suggest moving this article to Chief of the General Staff (Israel Defense Forces) or Chief of the General Staff of the Israel Defense Forces.

I agree in this particular case, but in some cases the acronym should stay (e.g. ZAKA) because there's no official translation of the long name and therefore we can't use it for the article title. Either that or it's very uncommon to refer to a subject by the full name. Actually this may be the case here. -- Ynhockey (Talk) 18:35, 31 August 2006 (UTC)
I agree. I think the name [Chief of the General Staff (Israel Defense Forces)] is good name. 147.161.16.3 (talk) 14:28, 29 January 2008 (UTC)
I agree as well. The current title, "Chief of General Staff (Israel)," sounds awkward without the determiner "the." It should be "Chief of *the* General Staff."—Biosketch (talk) 12:03, 18 February 2011 (UTC)
