I don't have a problem with POV, but I do with
detailed listings of each
incident and casualty. There is violence against Israelis. An encyclopedia
article would present the statistics, perhaps several examples, but not
extensive lists. Corresponding lists of Palestinian grievances are also
inappropriate, although I do think articles about Israeli locations should
include information regarding previous names of the place.
If we start including previous names, we'll start having the same
headaches we have in those Eastern Europe articles. There should be
some kind of standard for deciding those issues, and probably is, but
we don't need another set of authors failing to follow it.
