ArbCom elections are now open![edit]

Hi,
You appear to be eligible to vote in the current Arbitration Committee election. The Arbitration Committee is the panel of editors responsible for conducting the Wikipedia arbitration process. It has the authority to enact binding solutions for disputes between editors, primarily related to serious behavioural issues that the community has been unable to resolve. This includes the ability to impose site bans, topic bans, editing restrictions, and other measures needed to maintain our editing environment. The arbitration policy describes the Committee's roles and responsibilities in greater detail. If you wish to participate, you are welcome to review the candidates' statements and submit your choices on the voting page.

Islamophobia[edit]

Hi. I have come across some of your edit history, and it appears that you are opposed to the term Islamophobia on all grounds, and that you currently lean towards the Counterjihad movement. And that's understandable. However, I do not think you have a strong case here on Wiki for such views. Islamophobia as a term is well established in the academic literature, and you will have a very hard time arguing otherwise. That said, I find it strange that you would dismiss Islamophobia in the face of overwhelming consensus for its usage but seem fine with promoting much less known terms like Islamophobia-phobia. I ask you to re-consider your inclusion of extremist views in the articles on Islam. Al-Andalusi (talk) 15:29, 14 June 2016 (UTC)

This is an explicit attack on my good faith. I have contributed much to the Islamophobia article several years back to make it stronger. I added several references and used others more extensively. It been accepted by the consensus of editors regardless of their personal views as we here at Wikipedia look for reliable sources, not personal point of view. I don't know or care about your views. I do care about well-sourced information making into Wikipedia so that we all can have access to the literature. Jason from nyc (talk) 21:39, 14 June 2016 (UTC)
