The title is way too long. "Ayman al-Zawahiri warns Israel in new video." would be sufficient. -- 16:38, 27 July 2006 (UTC)

"warns" sort of implies there is some specific threat as opposed to what is reported, generally some posturing and rhetoric. It does need to be shorter though. How about "Ayman al-Zawahiri video includes call to arms against Israel"? :-) --Brian McNeil / talk 21:11, 27 July 2006 (UTC)

In new video, Ayman al-Zawahiri warns that Israel will "pay the price" for attacking muslims, calls for holy war

calls for holy war - not news considering the source

In new video - essential? Usually al qaeda statements are made by tape or on video.

How about

title length[edit]

please try to retain short titles. in this case, Zawahiri's first name is not headline matter. he's been calling for holy war for more than a decade, i think, and this is not new news. unless the words "pay a price" is believed to be significant (and this significance is explained in the article), it too can be left out.

None of what he's said is new news. It's repetition i.e. propaganda. I can justify this article on the fact that it shows Zawahiri has not yet met the underside of a daisycutter. Ealturner 10:42, 28 July 2006 (UTC)
