Edit request again[edit]

The full name in the preamble doesn't seem to contain "Arafat" part... Whereas it should be there, right before "al-Qudwa". Вечный подмастерье (talk) 17:02, 24 June 2022 (UTC)Reply[reply]

The 1967 War[edit]

The war is mentioned in this article as having been started by Israel. This is incorrect. Persident Nasser closed the Tiran straites prior to the war. This is considered "casus belus" (cause for war) in international law. Israel did attack the Egyptian Air Force as a pre-emptive strike. Source: Note: I am adding this here because I see tha this is a protected page and I don't think I am allowed to do direct edits. Nevertheless, having lived through this war, I know that Nasser asked the UN Troops to leave Sinai and closed the Tiran straites, and it is documented that he intended to go to war.Sensei2004 (talk) 13:11, 1 November 2022 (UTC)Reply[reply]

Providing a casus belli (a legal justification) for a war is not the same thing as starting one. A pre-emptive strike, meanwhile, very much is an act of war. Iskandar323 (talk) 12:26, 3 January 2023 (UTC)Reply[reply]

captions for the video of Arafat speaking[edit]

There should be captions made translating what he's saying to allow readers to know what he's talking about. 2A00:A040:198:EEAB:88B7:79C5:164C:52EF (talk) 02:52, 18 May 2023 (UTC)Reply[reply]

Polonium is not an isotope[edit]

Request changing

"after the French report found traces of the radioactive isotope polonium"


"after the French report found traces of polonium"

This is sufficient as all isotopes of polonium are radioactive. 2A02:8071:184:4E80:0:0:0:27C2 (talk) 06:55, 13 September 2023 (UTC)Reply[reply]
