Where do I list an article that needs work?[edit]

I recently added a section to Talk:Holocaust Studies about it needing work. Where can I announce that link in this Project so it gets eyeballs appropriately? (Please ping me here to reply.) Mathglot (talk) 21:56, 6 April 2016 (UTC)

Hi Mathglot. This WikiProject is virtually dead. I think you'll get a much better response to your announcement if you make it at WT:JUDAISM. — Malik Shabazz Talk/Stalk 03:18, 7 April 2016 (UTC)

AfD for Holocaust historian[edit]

Wikipedia:Articles for deletion/Daniel Romanovsky I started the original article and voted neutral on the AfD. The deleters actually have a good case based on WP policy, but something doesn't feel right. Thanks. Thoughtmonkey (talk) —Preceding undated comment added 03:12, 20 July 2016 (UTC)

IP continually deleting sourced text and a category at The Hoax of the Twentieth Century[edit]

67.80.32.237 (talk · contribs) has been deleting not only Category:Antisemitic publications from this article but sourced text describing it as antisemitic. Their latest edit summary is "The people listing the book as anti-semitic are going by the notion that it follows anti-Jewish conspiracies involving reparations and Israel-Palestinian wars. None of these sources list examples of this, yet include real examples like Jews and Their Lies". This is pretty much the CODOH line, eg [1]. I raised this at Wikipedia talk:WikiProject Judaism but this is probably the best place, I forgot it existed!. Doug Weller talk 18:10, 17 August 2016 (UTC)

I'm not doing this to be disruptive. I'm removing the category and the claims of it being anti-semitic because it doesn't even fit Wikipedia's own article description of the connection between that and Holocaust Denial. The article states that Holocaust Denial is often linked to this because many people hold the belief that it's an elaborate scheme to advance Jewish financial interest and stand as a shield for Israel's activities in the Gaza Strip. The reason why there's a difference is because The Holocaust wan't primarily a Jewish massacre, but also the murder of 5 million non Jews. Where do you see in the sources that Butz has written about either of these anti-Jewish ideas? Yes, the sources say the book is anti-semitic, but there is no backbone to such claims. If the book had said something along the lines of "The Jews exaggerated their experiences after the climax of World War II to gain money from the German&UN authorities, which was passed down to the children of Holocaust survivors. Jews in present day Israel use the Holocaust to justify ethnic cleansing and the murder of innocent civilians of Palestine to expand Israel's landmass." ; this would make the book anti-semitic. That's not an opinion, it's an unbiased fact. — Preceding unsigned comment added by 67.80.32.237 (talk) 18:58, 17 August 2016 (UTC)

I'd like to respond to Doug's comment by saying that this is not a copy & paste from CODOH, or Hannover's thread. As a matter of fact, these criteria points aren't even raised by that thread. — Preceding unsigned comment added by 67.80.32.237 (talk) 19:29, 17 August 2016 (UTC)

Of course I didn't say it was copy/paste. We go by what sources say, not editors' analysis of them or a book. And since it's a fact that it's described as antisemitic, the category is appropriate. Doug Weller talk 20:56, 17 August 2016 (UTC)
Do they explain how it's anti-semitic? Nope, they just say so. And this isn't helping the case in point in here when you consider that Wikipedia's own article on Holocaust Denial states that not all denial claims are anti-semitic - they just are if the criteria provided is met. — Preceding unsigned comment added by 67.80.32.237 (talk) 21:24, 17 August 2016 (UTC)

@Doug Weller: I believe it's a sock of this guy. AnotherNewAccount (talk) 16:20, 18 August 2016 (UTC)

I am no sock. I'm just an IP editor following the information given. You don't need to resort to personal attacks when I've done nothing wrong. — Preceding unsigned comment added by 67.80.32.237 (talk) 21:54, 18 August 2016 (UTC)
I don't know what you are, but I agree you aren't a sock of that editor. Of course you've done something wrong, you've deleted well sourced material. Another IP has just made the "revisionism isn't antisemitism" arguement at Ernst Zündel, a bigot who is a noted antisemite. And you seem to think that 'whoever put the book on Google' is an antisemite, which is just weird. The basis of the argument is that the Jews were lying. Never mind, I know I can never convince an antisemite they are wrong. Or someone who through ignorance supports them. Doug Weller talk 17:18, 19 August 2016 (UTC)
