Books & Bytes New Years Double Issue
Amalek 0 through 9
Hi, RolandR. Thought you'd want to know that I made a suggestion to that user on Debresser's talk page. I am cautiously hopeful that it will put a stop to the edit warring. FWIW: Personally, I think his subject is important and needs to be aired. I'm not so sure that Wikipedia is the place to do it. But I do think that at very least if it will happen on Wikipedia, it won't be so disruptive now. StevenJ81 (talk) 14:54, 4 June 2015 (UTC)
- The subject may be important, but not the way Amalek was addressing it. I was concerned that s/he was cherry-picking details from a fringe source, apparently to prove a hostile agenda. RolandR (talk) 16:37, 4 June 2015 (UTC)

Repeated removal by others of my edits of article on Alan Dershowitz
RolandR: I appeal to your obvious much-greater familiarity with the Wikipedia process. I am a complete neophyte.
You offered a comment with regard to an edit I made to Alan Dershowitz' article (involving his opinion about administrative detention being strongly criticized by Fousi El-Asmar). That edit has been now repeatedly completely removed with effectively no reason by another editor. This occurred several times in all, one editor advising me to get consensus (without offering alternative language) and one who claimed a copyright concern (that my investigation of WIkipedia guidelines and policy led me to conclude was not valid).
I have explained my views on the Talk page, and invited the offended editor on his user Talk page to engage this with further explanation or suggested changes, and nothing back yet from anyone.
I am of the firm opinion that my edit regarding Dershowitz is relevant to his status as a public figure who asserts expertise in issues involving Israel, and his intellectual honesty is seriously called into question by El-Asmar's remarks. Having read El-Asmar's personal memoir has led me to conclude that his telling of what he has faced in his life as a Palestinian in Mandatory Palestine/Israel is extremely compelling and credible.
- Sorry, I have been too busy on other matters to look at this closely. But I suspect that part of the objection is due to the length of your edit, which is disproportionate in this article. I think the incident deserves a significantly shorter mention, with pointers to where further information can be found. As I mentioned earlier, I propose to write a new article about Fouzi, in which this incident probably deserves greater prominence. RolandR (talk) 10:37, 8 June 2015 (UTC)
