Origin of Six Day War[edit]

This article doesn’t mention that Egypt committed an act of war by blocking’s Israel’s access to the Red Sea via the Straits of Tiran.

Torture Section missing citations?[edit]

Just noticed that there is some uncited paragraphs in the bottom half in this section. The first half appears to be fine and correlates with the citiation, but the bottom half just don't have any references anywhere.

Did anyone forget to add it or was it accidentally deleted? --Mofosyne (talk)

interesting article[edit]

Edit war[edit]

And there I was thinking my Israel expansion would be entirely non-controversial. lol 🎄Chef Moosolini’s Ristorante Italiano🎄Ask about our holiday specials! 21:36, 3 December 2020 (UTC)

Would the BoN obsessed with this page like to present any arguments before they cut out large, well-cited, and relevant portions of text?-Flandres (talk) 23:56, 5 December 2020 (UTC)
The funny thing is that I’m also pro-Israel. I’m just not super thin-skinned when it comes to acknowledging the state’s many faults. 🎄Chef Moosolini’s Ristorante Italiano🎄Ask about our holiday specials! 23:58, 5 December 2020 (UTC)

Bibi[edit]

What does Bibi mean please? Harry Potter (talk) 21:54, 16 May 2021 (UTC)

It’s a nickname for Benjamin Netanyahu, can’t say I know where it comes from. Christopher (talk) 21:58, 16 May 2021 (UTC)
I believe it was a childhood nickname, kept around because it makes him..."down to earth" as a politician.-Flandres (talk) 22:11, 16 May 2021 (UTC)

Israel has too many dmn parties[edit]

I get it's weird to bi-partisan Americans, but Knesset is not exceptionaly unproductive, and that wouldn't make it less democratic anyway. So I removed it. The partisan election council is not an actual problem either, since the parties are there to check each other and have judicial review. I probably should add more information about the actual democratic defeciancies though.--Nngnna (talk) 18:43, 16 August 2021 (UTC)
