RFC about YIBNA[edit]


Request for comment of Israeli neighborhoods[edit]

I have opened an RFC for several of the Israeli cities that I think are un-encyclopedic. Therefore, I appreciate input from editors from this WikiProject at that RFC. Thank you. --Tyw7 (🗣️ Talk) — If (reply) then (ping me) 14:08, 2 August 2018 (UTC)

Avi Blut or Avi Blot[edit]

A quick google shows a lot of results for Avi Blot but only a few results for Avi Blut. If Avi Blot is correct, please redirect the page accordingly. Thanks. Xaiver0510 (talk) 09:52, 17 August 2018 (UTC)

@Xaiver0510: Based on the niqqud on his name in the article (and on, Blut is correct. Number 57 10:01, 17 August 2018 (UTC)
@Number 57: Ah okay. Quite a few articles refer as Avi Blot so probably has to find and clean up. --Xaiver0510 (talk) 10:06, 17 August 2018 (UTC)

RfC: Antisemitism in the UK Labour Party[edit]

Talk:Antisemitism in the UK Labour Party#RfC: Inclusion of expert opinions, views of pundits, activist groups, tweets, etc. may be of interest to board followers.Icewhiz (talk) 15:24, 17 September 2018 (UTC)

What an absolute mess (much like the real life situation). And why is it relevant to this WP? I can see the article is tagged for WP:Israel, but it's a domestic British issue. Highlighting it on this board would appear to be bordering on canvassing. Number 57 15:48, 17 September 2018 (UTC)
The article is a mess. I ran down the WikiProjects it is tagged on, and posted in all. As for relevance here - Israel* is mentioned 119 times in the article, and Zion* 46 times (far outranking conservative*/torie* at 20, or Britain/UK/United Kingdon - at around 65). Furthermore - this is covered extensively and intensively in Israel based papers (e.g. Times of Israel, JPost, Haaretz). Basically, as I understand it - most of the British Jewish community (as well as elsewhere) see this as antisemitism. However, those engaged in this speech are for the most part claiming they are merely anti-Israel/Zionist or criticizing Israel - so that's not quite domestic and rather relevant to Israel. This also has ramifications regarding Aliya, e.g. Anti-Semitism is so bad in Britain that some Jews are planning to leave, CNN. Icewhiz (talk) 16:07, 17 September 2018 (UTC)
In that case, I would suggest it would be equally appropriate to notify WP:Palestine as there are 45 mentions of Palestine or Palestinians. Number 57 16:25, 17 September 2018 (UTC)

Years in the Israeli Civil Administration Area[edit]

Please see Wikipedia:Categories for discussion/Log/2018 October 13#Years in the Israeli Civil Administration Area. Should the categories for 1967–1993 use "Israeli Military Governorate"/"Israeli Civil Administration area", "Palestinian territories", "Israeli-occupied territories", "occupied Palestinian territories", "occupied Arab territories" or something else? – Fayenatic London 08:20, 16 October 2018 (UTC)
