Rodrigo Duterte as a CE[edit]

I think the IP removed the important part "The statement is met with outrage among Jewish communities in the United States". The exact quote from the source is: "His comments triggered shock and anger among Jewish groups in the United States, which could add to pressure on the U.S. government to take a tougher line with the Philippines leader". - Knowledgekid87 (talk) 22:28, 30 September 2016 (UTC)

@Knowledgekid87: Even with the IP's remarkable insistence and generally difficult attitude, I still believe this statement is of very limited significance in itself. Duterte has, in the past, made a huge amount of controversial statements, frequently met with public outcries, to me this is just one of them - pure political posturing. The report fails WP:DEPTH, and will almost certainly fail WP:PERSISTENCE (even the fact that the US might exert further pressure remains a speculation at this point - note "COULD"). Having been at Portal:Current events for a while and seeing similar statements from Duterte being removed for the same reason, I frankly do not see why this particular one should stay. Consider the possibility of filing it to WP:ITN/C and think about the responses it might get - that should be a testimony to its significance. Morningstar1814 (talk) 22:48, 30 September 2016 (UTC)
