Jaffa!?[edit]

In article wrote: "Salah Shahade was born in 1953, in Jaffa". This isn't make sense - If he born at 1953 in Jaffa, he must be an Israel citizen, how he arrived to Gaza?

killing of his 9 children?[edit]

In the article it is said that his 9 children were also killed. However, in the list there are only three persons with his surname? Does anyone explain it? Thanks, Egeymi (talk) 05:28, 22 July 2012 (UTC)

The source says nine children. It does not explicitly say that they were his nine children. I have attempted to clean this up using another source.--Toddy1 (talk) 16:55, 22 July 2012 (UTC)
However, there are still issues. The names of the killed are not identical. The most important difference is that one version has six members of the Matar family killed, and the other has seven. Note that the appeal document spells Matar with two 't's in the list of wounded, and Shehade is spelled both Shehadeh and Shihada.--Toddy1 (talk) 16:56, 22 July 2012 (UTC)

Main page[edit]

Congratulations on this article making the anniversary section =) I'm not sure if this is the right place for this, but the explanation of this article in the anniversary section seems poorly written

2002 – The Israeli Defense Forces dropped a bomb on the home of Salah Shehade, the leader of the military arm of Hamas, killing him and his family.

I move that it be changed to

2002 – The Israeli Defense Forces performed a precision military strike on the headquarters of Hamas terrorist leader Salah Shehade, effectively killing him and crippling Hamas significantly.

It cleans up the article greatly as it seems very POV in the first instance, giving legitimacy to Hamas and also the terrorist himself. Can an editor please fix this up? Thanks ^.@.^124.176.222.19 (talk) 10:04, 22 July 2012 (UTC)

Please see WP:TERRORIST. It is as neutral as it will get right now. I'm not a Hamas apologist, but one man's "terrorist" is another's "freedom fighter" --L1A1 FAL (talk) 10:59, 22 July 2012 (UTC)
