Title problematic[edit]

The reports I've seen say 4 were killed including the driver of the backhoe. The title of this article makes the problematic assertion that his death also fits under the rubric of "murder". 18:09, 2 July 2008 (UTC)

I have, therefore, changed the title to read that 4 are dead, without saying murdered or killed, or whatever. TShilo12 (talk) 18:11, 2 July 2008 (UTC)
I'm uncomfortable with the assertion it was terror. It has all the hallmarks of a random mass-murer by a suicidal individual, although they are similar in many respects to terror attacks. Only if there were clear proof - like a suicide note - saying it were terror would I be comfortable saying more than 'believed to be' or 'alledged to be' terror and attributing who says so.

It has been so classified by the Jerusalem police and the IDF. Take it up with them. People were certainly terrorized. 19:14, 2 July 2008 (UTC)


Unfourtunately the original article was a copyvio so I deleted the original aritcle, wrote a new article and renamed it to avoind copyright violation. That is why the article has got shorter. Anonymous101 (talk) 20:02, 2 July 2008 (UTC)

WP article[edit]

I'm not sure what Wikinews practice is with respect to news articles on topics about which there is also a Wikipedia article. In this case, the article in question on Wikipedia is Jerusalem bulldozer attack. Can it be added in a ==See also== section, or is that against some Wikinews common practice I don't know about? Thanks, TShilo12 (talk) 04:54, 4 July 2008 (UTC)

In these cases, the Wikipediapar template is added to the Sources section, creating a link to the Wikipedia article. Thanks for bringing it to our attention, though I kinda hate it when Wikipedia's article is more detailed than ours... oh, well. :-) ~Planoneck~ 05:03, 4 July 2008 (UTC)
