"Murder" vs. "Killing"[change source]

Its murder NOT just killing. 203.206.245.85 18:59, 16 February 2006 (UTC)

"Killing" is fact-based. "Murder", especially when it hasn't been proven in court, is an opinion, thus inherently POV. Freshstart 20:37, 16 February 2006 (UTC)

"POV" language[change source]

The page presently has the following statement: Hamas claims it has created social networks for supporting the "poor" in the West Bank and the Gaza Strip, to hide their terrorist activities. [Italics mine]
The use of quotation marks around the word "poor" is inappropriate: the poverty is related to the extremely high-density population in the Gaza Strip and lack of economic opportunities there as well as in the West Bank under its long-term military occupation by Israel. I am rewriting this passage accordingly. -- Deborahjay 21:40, 17 July 2007 (UTC)

Bases of the article[change source]

At the start, the article was a snippet from en:Hamas. I think that article will still provide enough material for extending this one, but of course, any citeable source can be used. --Eptalon 21:47, 17 July 2007 (UTC)

Article is also not up to date regarding the split (I think Gaza Strip - Hamas, West-Bank - Fatah (is that spelled correctly?)) --Eptalon 21:50, 17 July 2007 (UTC)
I've expanded some along these lines, striving for NPOV. -- Deborahjay 23:46, 17 July 2007 (UTC)
