Arabs and Jews[edit]

Are we saying that any descendant or resident is a "Palestinian", or only that Palestinian Arabs are Palestinians? The article should mention Palestinian Jews, since we do have an article an that group of people. --Uncle Ed (talk)

MOS:DAB non-conforming material[edit]

I have removed all material not in conformance with MOS:DAB from the page, and protected the page against its reintroduction, pending discussion. MOS:DAB is very clear and very specific about the prohibitions that are necessary to maintain conformity among our hundreds of thousands of disambiguation pages. A disambiguation page is merely an index, and should contain nothing that would not be found in a typical book index. References and external links are prohibited on disambiguation pages; these belong in the references articles. Only one blue link is permitted per line, to provide the reader with the fastest route to the article actually being sought. If any editor believes that an exception to these rules is required for this page, then the page probably should not be a disambiguation page at all, because that is what exceptions entail.

There seems to be a problem with the bulleting, but I can't fix it since it's protected.Timtempleton (talk) 00:40, 12 September 2015 (UTC)
Fixed - thanks for noting the problem. bd2412 T 00:54, 12 September 2015 (UTC)

Proposed revision of content into different sections[edit]

Hi - I came across this article and was a bit confused by the different items, since I'm not an expert on Palestine. I read the articles to better understand them, and took the liberty of revising the items into more meaningful sections, with some additional text for clarification. What do you think?

Extended content

Palestinian is typically referring to a person belonging to the Palestinian people, an Arab nationalist group defined in the Palestinian National Charter of 1968, also referred to as Palestinians (Arabic: الفلسطينيون‎‎, al-Filasṭīniyyūn).

It may also refer to:

Religious groups
Communities outside the State of Palestine
Geographic areas
Political bodies

For specific persons, see List of Palestinians

  • I would put Palestinian people higher on the list, and list all groups of people who are "Palestinian" as subtopics of that term. bd2412 T 12:59, 16 September 2015 (UTC)
I realized that I had the Palestinian People in there twice - in the lede and in the demographic section - so I enhanced the first reference, and revised the others. I moved up the people categories to the top, per your suggestion. I also put in a few more of the political bodies, but since they don't all have the term Palestinian in the article titles (ex: PLO), I'm wondering if that's too much for the term Palestinian. And, might the political organizations warrant their own disambiguation page Palestinian Political Organizations? I think we're getting closer though.Timtempleton (talk) 19:15, 16 September 2015 (UTC)
I don't see any comments - do you want to just make the change and go from there?Timtempleton (talk) 20:50, 7 October 2015 (UTC)
The proposal has been open long enough for any reasonable objection to have been raised. I'd go ahead with it. bd2412 T 18:51, 7 December 2015 (UTC)

@Timtempleton: would you mind outlining the changes and rationale for them? — Martin (MSGJ · talk) 14:07, 7 December 2015 (UTC)
@MSGJ: please see my explanation and proposed revision above.Timtempleton (talk) 18:48, 7 December 2015 (UTC)
Ah I see. Okay  Done. Please clarify if the "See also" section was removed intentionally? — Martin (MSGJ · talk) 20:05, 7 December 2015 (UTC)
@MSGJ - My suggested edits didn't involve that section - it should be put back in.Timtempleton (talk) 22:39, 2 January 2016 (UTC)
Okay, I put it back — Martin (MSGJ · talk) 20:59, 3 January 2016 (UTC)

Protected edit request January 2016[edit]

Please add some form of {{pp}} and {{pp-move}} or related templates to the top of the page. davidwr/(talk)/(contribs) 20:59, 2 January 2016 (UTC)

Is {{pp}} sufficient? I think the module automatically detects the right icon to show. — Martin (MSGJ · talk) 20:57, 3 January 2016 (UTC)

Missing entries[edit]

The absence of straightforward entries like these (and there may be others) makes it difficult to disambiguate links to this DAB page correctly, and makes it a very poor navigational tool. I suggest that someone with editing rights conduct an {{intitle}} search and expand it. Narky Blert (talk) 10:02, 13 September 2016 (UTC)

Palestinian Jews[edit]

dear administrators, please add, after: "It may also refer to: Religious groups

  • Palestinian Muslims, members of the major religion in the State of Palestine
  • Palestinian Christians, an ethnoreligious group native to the area of Palestine, in the Levant"
  • Palestinian Jews, an ethnoreligious group native to the area of Palestine, in the Levant.

my family are Palestinian Jews, and proud of it. Shilonite 23:59, 16 November 2016 (UTC)
