Teddy Katz's Mark[edit]

At present a sentence referring to the mark that Teddy Katz received from Haifa University remains unclear. It reads "The assessment of the revised thesis was highly mixed, but overall it was failed.[12][16]". The first half of the sentence is weasel worded, or at least needs elucidation. The reference used to back up this sentence (16) makes it clear that the mark received was the result of averaging highly divergent marks, something the article states is "most unusual" and "dubious". The fact that an unusual process was applied is an important detail, not simply the fact that the marks were "highly mixed" (actually highly divergent). I would propose, on the basis of the reference given, "The assessment of the revised thesis by markers was highly divergent, but overall it was failed on the basis of the unusual step averaging divergent marks. This process produced a result of 74%, 1% below the pass mark". That's what it says in the source cited. It might be wrong, but then a new citation is needed. — Preceding unsigned comment added by Slmiller6 (talkcontribs) 13:19, 17 September 2012 (UTC)

A big chunk of the "Katz Controversy" text is being copied and pasted by "Hasbara trolls" - I find hundreds of references to it on Google - so yes, arguments and references therein should be carefully scrutinized.GXIndiana (talk) 20:53, 18 February 2015 (UTC)


Why does the info box say that his ethnicity is German? Shouldn't Jewish or Ashkenazi Jew be more appropriate? (talk) 04:12, 22 August 2014 (UTC)

Do you have sources for that?--Shrike (talk) 06:51, 22 August 2014 (UTC)
Ok, I couldn't find anything that specifically said he was an Ashkenazi Jew but this and even this one that's already sourced in the article say he was born to German Jews (and German Jews are Ashkenazi) fleeing persecution from the Nazis (in the second one it even says both sides of his family suffered deaths due to the Holocaust) not that he was born to an ethnic German family that arrived in Israel. So I propose his ethnicity to be changed to Jewish only (or Ashkenazi Jew) from German. (talk) 23:34, 22 August 2014 (UTC)
I've never understood, and don't much like, the "ethnicity" field of infoboxes. But anyway it is a triviality to source that Pappé is Jewish and that value was edit-warred out only recently. Try Here for example. Zerotalk 09:34, 22 August 2014 (UTC)
