Welcome to Tewfik's Talk page. Feel free to leave comments and criticism at the bottom of the page:[edit]

Thank you for the answer but..[edit]

I still haven't got any apology from him at all. You can only see his warning regarding possible edit wars in future on my talk page. He said if we are conflicting again on the same article, he will revert my edit based on his "OWN" rule and do to rebuke me. I was so disappointed at such the comments. I made a very long report and was not helpful to get many attentions from sysops. Actually I'm making shorten it, but according to your answer, he won't get any punishment or warning. That is very regretful. Can you at least give him a warning on his disruptive behaviors? He has been abusive at not only me but also Koreans into Korean-Japan related articles. I don't get why he has so hatred sentiment against Korea. He said he is a foreigner residing in Japan. I hope there would not any trouble with him, but he should carefully listen to other people's talk. I think you can do that to prevent further troubles. Thanks. --Appletrees 01:04, 1 November 2007 (UTC)

I tried to be cool off from the report, but according to his very recent comment on my talk page User talk:Appletrees User talk:Appletrees/Archive_1#civility, I think the case is not done yet. He denies my proposal for pacification. He's still making a mockery of my report and there is no hope. So I repost his case again in the incident page. [1] Please see his comments on my talk page and the incident page, and reconsider him to get at least warning from any sysop in an official way. Thanks--Appletrees 15:57, 1 November 2007 (UTC)

Arab Jews[edit]

Yes, a lot of that language was sloppy editorializing, and I agree with your cleanup generally. I think one would need a Benny Morris to write the story in all of its complexity, and dislike simple generalizations on vast historical processes. Regards Nishidani 09:11, 1 November 2007 (UTC)

Category:Communal cities, towns and villages in Israel[edit]

Don't know if you missed this as you archived it before replying, but would you support a name change to Category:Communal Israeli cities, towns and villages in line with Category:Religious Israeli communities, as it appears that a significant number of the ones in there are now settlements and not "in Israel", and I can't see the point in dividing this into Category:Communal Israeli settlements as was done with the religion thing. пﮟოьεԻ 57 16:30, 31 October 2007 (UTC)

Well, when I eventually take it to WP:CfD, I was planning to offer two options; either rename the category, or create a seperate (not sub-) category for Communal Israeli settlements, but with a strong preference for the former - as I said, unlike religion, which is an issue for some settlements, I don't think "communal" status matters at all. If you agree, I will drop the offer of creating a seperate category and just suggest a rename (and if someone later creates a seperate category, I will support its deletion). пﮟოьεԻ 57 09:05, 5 November 2007 (UTC)
Basically it is the "in Israel" issue again - the category contains many settlements which are not, and hence a WP:NPOV violation. пﮟოьεԻ 57 08:14, 7 November 2007 (UTC)

Thanks for taking care of all the fair-use claim details... AnonMoos 09:56, 4 November 2007 (UTC)

Gilo[edit]

I noticed you removed all references to Gilo as a 'settlement' and put it back as a 'neighborhood,' and said that the references did not call it a settlement, when in fact they did. You also removed many other useful contributions made by myself, and other contributors which did not fall under the 'settlement/neighborhood' debate. What's going on? You know Gilo is not a neighborhood, neighborhoods allow anyone to live there, not just certain religious or ethnic groups. Colourinthemeaning 12:06, 4 November 2007 (UTC)

You Removed Copious Citations and then put in "Citation Needed" Notes[edit]

Looking back at several pages of talk, it seems you have a habit of deleting large blocks of text, including lots of sourcing, with rationales that others contested. First time going through other's talk pages have seen so much of that.

You just did the same to the Samson Option article, leaving merely:

Section - Samson Option controversies The Israeli Samson Option is controversial because Israeli leaders have stated or implied that if Israel was destroyed it would retaliate with nuclear weapons against the cities of Arab and other enemy nations which did not directly attack it.[citation needed] Speculation from prominent Israeli supporters, Jewish and Christian, on how Israel might wreak revenge continue to fuel this controversy.[citation needed]

Anyone who goes back to here http://en.wikipedia.org/w/index.php?title=Samson_Option&oldid=168995281 will see all the evidence that was deleted.

I do get your point about "quote farm" and can narrow it down to fewer and more on target evidence with sourcing. I hope you agree that relevant sourced information should NOT be deleted for capricious, unexplained reasons. For example, why is giving solid evidence of a known military and diplomatic fact POV?? But that just makes it necessary to get more facts, since there are plenty out there.

The Balady of Palestine[edit]

you changed it to Balady citron, which is not correct, because the Yemenite citron could also be called Balady because it is the native to Yemen.

The Palestinian Balady Citron needs still importantly the name to distinguish between it and the Greek citron which is today the leading cultivar in Isreal.

Abasans[edit]

Good, so Abasan should be deleted. I already made an article on the small Abasan. As for the municipality thing, I'm not sure about the town a, town b or village statuses. Its already integrated into the infobox. I judge according to population. --Al Ameer son 21:10, 7 November 2007 (UTC)

1920 Palestine riots[edit]

Hi Tewfik,
I don't have the feeling that the military administration was replaced by a civil one due to these events. After all, San Remo had to take place only a few days after and it sounds logical after confirmation of the mandate a civil administration replace a military one...
Such as for British Mandate of Mesopotamia while still in rebellion !
I know Segev write p.142 the events lead to this transfer but Morris doens't refer to this in Victims.
I think he made a mistake. What do you think about that ? Alithien 22:36, 13 November 2007 (UTC)

Zionist political violence[edit]

I am trying to get the original research out of the article, and in the future, I'd appreciate it if you could revert to the version which doesn't restore any of the original research as well. Yahel Guhan 04:23, 16 November 2007 (UTC)

Massacre in Jenin 2002[edit]

Before you re-insert "Amnesty International's report did not contain accusations that a massacre had occurred" at Operation Defensive Shield, please note that the report describes an incident most people would consider a massacre. It's a mass-shooting of unarmed and non-threatening people in an alleyway:

"We did not have anything in our hands. When they told us to raise our shirts, we did. I heard Gaby say in Hebrew ‘Kill them, kill them’, then the other soldier took his gun and sprayed us with bullets. He shot from left to right, so ‘Abd al-Karim was hit first and then Wadah. I don’t know how I wasn’t shot except that when I heard the shots, I fell to the ground. My son’s body was resting on mine. I could feel something wet underneath and I could see it was blood. I could see that my son was shot. I kept very quiet and pretended to be dead". The report continues: "According to Fathi Shalabi, the soldiers remained there for over one hour. They checked the bodies from time to time and one had shone a light near his eyes. He tried to remain still."

Amnesty tell us that Israel has confirmed this incident, so there's not even any dispute about it happening. The reason they don't use the word "massacre" is because, as they say, they don't like it. Even so, they describe exactly why people might wish to use it: "foreign journalists and others outside the camp saw hundreds of missiles being fired into the houses of the camp ... in these circumstances ... stories of a "massacre" spread". It is plainly misleading of AI's intention to quote them as if they deny that a massacre occured, they clearly do not. PRtalk 16:54, 18 November 2007 (UTC)

Vandal[edit]

You're the first editor I thought off-hand who could help me, so here's the deal: there's some vandal at User:85.207.232.200 who keeps adding 'illegal settlement' to the Efrat page. I have given him 3 warnings, and after this he should be blocked (report at WP:AIV). The problem is that I'll be away for at least 3 days in the army and won't be able to report or revert his vandalism. Can you please look out for the article and the person? Thanks, Ynhockey (Talk) 20:48, 19 November 2007 (UTC)

Kiryat Arba[edit]

The Accadian term is something I've known about for several years, but I am no expert on Semtic languages (b/y variation seems problematical). I have never seen any academic treatment of it, and so cannot source the suggestion. Where I to put what I know on that Hebron page it would, as things stand, amount to OR, and thus I have refrained, as with much else. I just thought in the interests of the page that I should drop you a quick note. If you do know or can contact Israeli specialists, who in turn might clarify the matter, the resulting information would improve the page. Just something to keep one's eyes out for, in reading, desultory conversation etc., as the present entry looks inadequate. Regards Nishidani (talk) 10:26, 20 November 2007 (UTC)

Template:Asian capitals[edit]

Tewfik, it looks like the spurious protection of the page should probably be taken to WP:AN or WP:RFPP. I'm going to be a bit indisposed the next couple of days, so you would like to escalate it? Newtman (talk) 02:28, 22 November 2007 (UTC)

Extremely POV and I'm pretty sure pointless article[edit]

I was searching Eilabun but accidentally spelled it. I got this article, Eilaboun. The article seems plagiarized, clearly incites POV, and has virtually no links. I don't know whether to propose deletion or a merger. Perhaps create an article entitled Eilabun massacre? What do you think? --Al Ameer son (talk) 03:16, 26 November 2007 (UTC)

Oh, no it was the right link, it was deleted today I guess. I thought you deleted it. On a second note, I wanted to ask you if I would be able to upload some Israeli local council logos from the FOTW site and use the fair-use rationale you used for the Maghar logo. I'm pretty sure it will be allowed, correct? --Al Ameer son (talk) 02:47, 27 November 2007 (UTC)

Wow. I don't whats going on I clearly remember an Eilaboun article. As for the logo or flag, i was looking for one to add to the Shaghur article but none was found but I am thinking about adding one to Eilabun.[2] --Al Ameer son (talk) 03:02, 27 November 2007 (UTC)

P.S. Here is the former article[3];look at the deletion log at bottom central. I'll redirect it shortly. --Al Ameer son (talk) 03:05, 27 November 2007 (UTC)

Where Are You?[edit]

Where have you been, I haven't seen your edits for a while now. Have you left Wiki or just on vacation. Hopefully its the latter, looking forward to some more contibs by you. Cheers! --Al Ameer son (talk) 15:22, 14 December 2007 (UTC)

Oh I see, for a minute there I thought you left. Thanks for your compliment. On a second note, I finally created an article for Municipality (Palestinian Authority). All the info is from the ref I think you provided in the PalMuni template. I can't find that many cites to elaborate on the article more. I think its because theres not really an official government or at least an official local government setup. If you have anything, please add. --Al Ameer son (talk) 22:31, 16 December 2007 (UTC)
Thats what it was in 2006 according to the PCBS. Of course its an estimate and not from a census. Heres the Jericho Governorate chart. Its the fourth locality listed.[4] --Al Ameer son (talk) 18:02, 19 December 2007 (UTC)

Atarot[edit]

Hello,

Regarding your phrasing, the reason I changed it back was that 'Atarot is home to Atarot Airport' isn't saying much. To be really consistent, you could also say it is 'home to Atarot industrial park' instead of 'Jerusalem's largest industrial park'. However, the airport, like the park, is significant because of the city that it served, and in whose municipal boundaries it is located. TewfikTalk 10:01, 30 November 2007 (UTC)

And? TewfikTalk 18:43, 16 December 2007 (UTC)

Input with Saudi Arabian Jewish history[edit]

Hi Tewfik, hope all goes well. Maybe you can help improve the History of the Jews in Saudi Arabia article. It links to smaller articles about Jewish tribes in the areas of present-day Saudi Arabia, such as Banu Awf, Banu Harith, Banu Jusham, Banu Najjar, Banu Sa'ida, Banu Shutayba and they all cited sources. Now User:Bless sins is requesting "sources" for the same information about the tribes in the History of the Jews in Saudi Arabia article, as well as making other requests for sources and whatnot. (If you like, and have a minute or two, see the discussions that have been taking place at Category talk:Jewish Saudi Arabian history.) Please help out in the History of the Jews in Saudi Arabia article. Thanks, IZAK (talk) 14:43, 3 January 2008 (UTC)

Little triangle[edit]

Hi. I'm french, and a i search informations about the transfert of the little triangle from Tranjordan to Israel, in june 1949 (for this article), beacause of the transjordan-Israeli cease-fire of marche 1948. I see you wrote a part of the article about this subject in en:WP.

My questions :

  1. I would want to have the confirmation that Umm el Famm was still conquier by israelis before this transfert.
  2. The article Triangle (Israel) give a list of 20 towns and village of the present triangle. Do you know what cities where under israeli controlled territories before the cease-fire agreement ?
  3. Is it exist other villages, or these 20 towns and villages are the complete list of the arabs localities of the present triangle ?
  4. Do you know (on the net) a map of the triangle ?

If you can help me, you can give me the answer here. Best regards. Christophe Cagé.

IDF bases - transliteration[edit]

Just noticed a very old edit of yours, where you changed Bsis Klita UMiyun to Basis Klita UMiyun. This is incorrect, as in Hebrew grammar almost any first letter's nikud can change to a shva if the accent of its word of phrase is moved farther away from it. Thus, base is basis, but an absorption base is bsis klita, a training base is bsis hadrakha, etc. FYI. -- Ynhockey (Talk) 16:16, 6 April 2008 (UTC)

Image copyright problem with File:RehovotLogo.jpg[edit]

Thanks for uploading File:RehovotLogo.jpg. You've indicated that the image is being used under a claim of fair use, but you have not provided an adequate explanation for why it meets Wikipedia's requirements for such images. In particular, for each page the image is used on, the image must have an explanation linking to that page which explains why it needs to be used on that page. Can you please check

  • That there is a non-free use rationale on the image's description page for each article the image is used in.
  • That every article it is used on is linked to from its description page.

Ambox warning blue.svg Thanks for uploading File:NetanyaLogo.png. The media description page currently specifies that it is non-free and may only be used on Wikipedia under a claim of fair use.

You may add it back if you think that that will be useful. However, please note that media for which a replacement could be created are not acceptable for use on Wikipedia (see our policy for non-free media).

Retrospect on editing 2006 Lebanon War[edit]

I'm researching the history of the wiki entry for the 2006 Lebanon War for a college course and wanted to know your thoughts on the history of creating the article. You are the user with the most edits for the article and looking back through your talk history, I can see that you have been awarded from other Wiki users for your neutrality AND accused of being biased with (sometimes) rather harsh words. I was wondering if you could give a little insight into the whole process:

  • What personal experiences, background, etc. has made you interested in editing such pages like the 2006 Lebanon War and the 1920 Palestinian riots?
  • Were you editing this specific pages as news was reported or did you turn to the discussion board before making direct changes?
  • What sort of page vandalism did you notice as the article progressed?
  • What was most upsetting about the edit wars going on with this page?
  • Do you think this article is a good example of neutrality?

I'd love for your candidness on this topic, so please feel free to email me Special:EmailUser/Titkos27

File source problem with File:HarHomaConstruction.jpg[edit]

File Copyright problem

Thanks for uploading File:HarHomaConstruction.jpg. I noticed that the file's description page currently doesn't specify who created the content, so the copyright status is unclear. If you did not create this file yourself, you will need to specify the owner of the copyright. If you obtained it from a website, then a link to the website from which it was taken, together with a restatement of that website's terms of use of its content, is usually sufficient information. However, if the copyright holder is different from the website's publisher, their copyright should also be acknowledged.

If you have uploaded other files, consider checking that you have specified their source and tagged them, too. You can find a list of files you have uploaded by following this link. Unsourced and untagged images may be deleted one week after they have been tagged, as described on criteria for speedy deletion. If the image is copyrighted under a non-free license (per Wikipedia:Fair use) then the image will be deleted 48 hours after 14:52, 28 March 2009 (UTC). If you have any questions please ask them at the Media copyright questions page. Thank you. Wikipeder (talk) 14:52, 28 March 2009 (UTC)

Proposed deletion of Bet El[edit]

Ambox warning yellow.svg

A proposed deletion template has been added to the article Bet El, suggesting that it be deleted according to the proposed deletion process because of the following concern:

Local place of worship; no indication of notability.

All contributions are appreciated, but this article may not satisfy Wikipedia's criteria for inclusion, and the deletion notice should explain why (see also "What Wikipedia is not" and Wikipedia's deletion policy). You may prevent the proposed deletion by removing the {{dated prod}} notice, but please explain why you disagree with the proposed deletion in your edit summary or on its talk page.

Please consider improving the article to address the issues raised because, even though removing the deletion notice will prevent deletion through the proposed deletion process, the article may still be deleted if it matches any of the speedy deletion criteria or it can be sent to Articles for Deletion, where it may be deleted if consensus to delete is reached.

File:Hod_HaSharonlogo.png[edit]

Help! Something wierd going on![edit]

Something strange has been happening with my account. Today I found it blocked and pages and pages of months and months of warnings about vandalisations and posts that I haven't actually posted. Someone without a Username seems to have become confused with my account and so I was blocked because of him/her. I have barely posted anything on Wikipedia for months.

I wonder if you could look into what happened? I would hate to be blocked or deleted in error. Thanks! ThePeg (talk) 20:51, 12 September 2009 (UTC)

Self-published book[edit]

I'm working on compiling a book containing information about almost all Non-indigenous ethnic groups living or working in Pakistan. The population of a particular ethnic group would be obtain respectively from their diplomatic missions in Pakistan including regions with significant populations, languages spoken and religious affiliations. I'm not very good with writing so it would be great, if you would like to collaborate with me.--116.71.53.25 (talk) 06:14, 25 September 2009 (UTC)

Replaceable fair use Image:Kara_ayoob.jpg[edit]

Replaceable fair use

Thanks for uploading Image:Kara_ayoob.jpg. I noticed the description page specifies that the media is being used under a claim of fair use, but its use in Wikipedia articles fails our first non-free content criterion in that it illustrates a subject for which a freely licensed media could reasonably be found or created that provides substantially the same information. If you believe this media is not replaceable, please:

  1. Go to the media description page and edit it to add {{di-replaceable fair use disputed}}, without deleting the original replaceable fair use template.
  2. On the image discussion page, write the reason why this image is not replaceable at all.

Alternatively, you can also choose to replace this non-free media by finding freely licensed media of the same subject, requesting that the copyright holder release this (or similar) media under a free license, or by taking a picture of it yourself.

If you have uploaded other non-free media, consider checking that you have specified how these images fully satisfy our non-free content criteria. You can find a list of description pages you have edited by clicking on this link. Note that even if you follow steps 1 and 2 above, non-free media which could be replaced by freely licensed alternatives will be deleted 2 days after this notification (7 days if uploaded before 13 July 2006), per our non-free content policy. If you have any questions please ask them at the Media copyright questions page. Thank you. Rettetast (talk) 17:17, 1 October 2009 (UTC)
