Please comment on a move discussion[edit]

Please comment on a move discussion at Talk:Ancient_synagogues_in_Palestine#Requested_move_15_June_2016, where I propose to move "Ancient synagogues in Palestine" to "Ancient synagogues in the Palestine region". Debresser (talk) 22:18, 15 June 2016 (UTC)

Should "Jewish nose" be moved to "Jewish nose stereotype"?[edit]

A suggestion has been made to change the title of Jewish nose to Jewish nose stereotype. One participant, after thoroughly losing the argument went, in opinion of some, on selective forum shopping. Therefore I am reposting his invitation where I think Jewish history took part as well. - üser:Altenmann >t 20:27, 19 June 2016 (UTC)

Qays and Yaman discussion[edit]

Local elections[edit]

The State of Palestine is set to have local elections on 8 October 2016. In response, Palestine's left-wing parties have formed a new electoral alliance called the "Democratic Alliance" (not to be confused with the 1980s alliance of the same name. Why neither of these topics have articles is beyond me. I am requesting assistance in the creation of these articles. Numerous sources can be found on Google by typing in "Palestinian elections".

The Palestinian Authority*** (We have to solve this argument before it will be raised in an actual article).--Bolter21 (talk to me) 17:43, 17 August 2016 (UTC)
Which arguement? Charles Essie (talk) 15:28, 18 August 2016 (UTC)
There are sources such as this one that say there will be elections in Palestinian Authority. Most mention "Palestinian elections". Is there any source for elections in "State of Palestine" ? WarKosign 06:48, 19 August 2016 (UTC)
The casual protocol that someone writes "State of Palestine" in an article and then 1RR makes it a permanent term whose removal is harder than pulling Excalibur out of the stone. The connection between sources and "State of Palestine" are usually coincidental.--Bolter21 (talk to me) 10:58, 19 August 2016 (UTC)

I"ve started an a stub article. Here: Palestinian local elections, 2016.--Bolter21 (talk to me) 12:32, 19 August 2016 (UTC)

Thank you very much. I'd also like to thank Soman for creating Democratic Alliance List. By the way, it looks like another coalition has been formed for the elections, the "National Democratic Coalition". Any chance that we could get an article for that one too?

Many thanks, --Soman (talk) 16:19, 22 August 2016 (UTC)
