Article name.[edit]

Why is this article called "Operation Wrath of God" when the footnote acknowledges that this term does not appear in any official document, and almost every source that refers to this event refers to it as Operation Bayonet? Even searching for the Hebrew of the title name provides very few non-Wikipedia sources. --70.131.114.241 (talk) 07:59, 13 May 2008 (UTC)

The term "Wrath of God" was created by so-called experts who wrote a book on Mossad over 30 years ago. Just like the article "Operation Entebbe" the name refering to the operation and the events was never known as such. And wikipedia being what it is keep perpetuating those errors. 121.216.156.160 (talk) 18:37, 6 January 2014 (UTC)

Israel and Mossad?[edit]

The initial sentence ends with
"...directed by Israel and the Mossad to assassinate individuals alleged to have been directly or indirectly involved in the 1972 Munich massacre."
This wording looks strange as Israel is a country and Mossad a government agency, presumably acting on the orders given by the Israeli government. Would anyone mind if I amended the sentence?

Casualties[edit]

I note that theres no attempt to account the number of casualties caused in the article, either deliberate on both sides or innocent bystanders. WatcherZero (talk) 03:08, 30 June 2012 (UTC)

Problems[edit]

  • The prose is very choppy, with lots of one- and two-sentence paragraphs.
  • Nearly half of the "Operations" section is "On [date], [event]". This sentence structure is repeated ad nauseam and begging for a copy edit.
  • Entire third paragraph of "Attempted assassination of Golda Meir in Rome" is unsourced.
  • Sports Illustrated is tagged as an unreliable source, but I don't see how it is.
  • "the cited resource was decommissioned in 2008 and TKB records were later adopted by START. However a search of the available records (via http://www.start.umd.edu/start/) failed to uncover the originally cited material." — major problem, suggest outright removing the source then.

If these problems are not tended to, the article will be sent to WP:FAR. Ten Pound Hammer(What did I screw up now?) 02:23, 3 July 2012 (UTC)
