Talk:Victor Atiyeh

Does he belong here?[edit]

I'm not convinced that this bloke merits his own page here. Shouldn't this just be a redirect to Bhagwan Sree Rajneesh? Being the first Arab-American governor isn't a reason to have an article here anymore than being the most famous boat in history or the highest mountain in the world.

Neither me, not convinced. Being the target of disgruntled Rajneeshis may not suffice for cromulent RationalWikiality. Sprocket J Cogswell (talk) 13:31, 30 March 2014 (UTC)
Boy, this one takes me back. I was a teen when this all happened and I served with a guy whose mom was at Rajneeshpuram. I enjoy the nostalgia but I don't think Atiyeh's notable enough in a mission-related way to warrant his own article. I also don't recall anything about the cult's plot being any more broadly targeted than just the US Attorney and the state AG. If there's a source that confirms they were planning an armed uprising it's certainly notable, but I think only to show how far spun the Bhagwan's followers had been. It belongs on his page if it can be verified. Godless11B's gonna die the way he lived. 07:45, 31 March 2014 (UTC)

──────────────────────────────────────────────────────────────────────────────────────────────────── After a sniff around the intytoobs I could find nothing verifying the coup/assassination stuff so I vaped the page without a merge. --MtDNotorious Sodomite 22:45, 7 April 2014 (UTC)
