Saladin1970's actual article "contributions" have all been POV,

have been reverted by 9 different editors. He has managed all of
in under 50 edits. I'm having difficulty understanding what value he
could possibly bring to the project.
He's a newbie. He doesn't understand our rules or procedures or
sense of institutional memory like those of us who have been around
long time. Revert him, zap him with the cluebat a few times, and
give him a
chance to reform. This is a wiki and the article histories are
indefinitely. If short blocks have no effect on him, then I'd be
consent to a community ban. But we have to try them first.
All of his edits seem to fall within a POV-pushing, anti-Semitic
agenda. From denouncing Zionism to trying to publicly identify
(without proof) a convicted murderer as Jewish, it's pretty clear
that he's trying to turn Wikipedia content into racist propaganda. I
am quite firm about this--he should be blocked indefinitely. If he is
willing to apologize for his past edits I'd have no problem with
reinstating him. But Wikipedia is not a hate site.

I don't find anti-Semitism entertaining, thanks.
