Daniel Pipes[edit]

Can we find a better source for debunking this than Daniel Pipes, who in any other context would be considered a far-right nut? --Annanoon (talk) 14:10, 2 September 2019 (UTC)

Israel returning territory[edit]

Removed the line suggesting Israel returned occupied territory during the Six-Day War. This is incorrect. The Sinai was returned in full in 1989, 22 years after the occupation and seizure of the peninsula. I also removed the line saying "it's safe to say that Israel does not plan to annex them" ("them" referring to additional occupied territory) given the Golan Heights (Syrian territory) is for all intents and purposes annexed by Israel.

Edit by Luckywarrior seemed to suggest that this isn’t a conspiracy theory with the line “also considered by some.” Also broadly used incorrectly formatted links to Wikipedia. Pizza SLICE.gifChef Moosolini’s Ristorante ItalianoMake a Reservation 07:43, 28 February 2021 (UTC)

The Movement for Greater Israel was a conservative political party in Israel, founded by Avraham Yoffe, that was active from 1967 to 1976. The party called on Israel to keep the Gaza Strip, the Sinai Peninsula, the West Bank, and the Golan Heights after the Six-Day War, encouraging Jewish settlement of those regions. In 1976, the Movement merged with the National List and the Independent Center to form La'am. This is factual, but the other garbage wasn't. Sievert 81 (talk) 07:49, 28 February 2021 (UTC)
True. An irredentist page on Israel based on the various borders of ancient Israel could perhaps be written but should kept as a separate page from the conspiracist Greater Israel page. The borders of ancient Israel were substantially smaller than the conspiracist Greater Israel. Bongolian (talk) 08:01, 28 February 2021 (UTC)
