WARNING: ACTIVE ARBITRATION REMEDIESThe article Palestinian territories, along with other articles relating to the Arab–Israeli conflict, is currently subject to active arbitration remedies resulting from four arbitration cases (see WP:A/I/PIA). The current restrictions are:
Editing restrictions for new editors: All IP editors, accounts with fewer than 500 edits, and accounts with less than 30 days tenure are prohibited from editing any page that could be reasonably construed as being related to the Arab–Israeli conflict.
Limit of one revert in 24 hours: All articles related to the Arab–Israeli conflict, reasonably construed, are under WP:1RR (one revert per editor per article per 24-hour period). When in doubt, assume it is related.
All Arab–Israeli conflict-related pages, broadly interpreted, are subject to discretionary sanctions: Any uninvolved administrator may levy restrictions as an arbitration enforcement action on users editing in this topic area, after an initial notification.
The exceptions to the 500/30 restriction are:
Editors who are not eligible to be extended-confirmed may use the Talk: namespace to post constructive comments and make edit requests related to articles within the topic area, provided they are not disruptive. Talk pages where disruption occurs may be managed by any of the above methods. This exception does not apply to other internal project discussions such as AfDs, WikiProjects, noticeboard discussions, etc.
Editors who are not eligible to be extended-confirmed may not create new articles, but administrators may exercise discretion when deciding how to enforce this remedy on article creations. Deletion of new articles by editors who do not meet the criteria is permitted but not required.
With respect to the WP:1RR restriction:
Clear vandalism of whatever origin may be reverted without restriction. Reverts of edits made by anonymous (IP) editors that are not vandalism are exempt from the 1RR but are subject to the usual rules on edit warring.
Editors who violate this restriction may be blocked without warning by any uninvolved administrator, even on a first offence.

I decided to go through this article because it is a bit of a mess, tbh.
I agree that the problem is that "someone" objected and I added an additional objector to the references for that para.I think two objectors is sufficient,is it not? This issue is also addressed later in the article, I might add them together later on.
As for the redlink, if you do not believe that it was a redlink please go back and check, it was (a mistyping, I think). In addition, I amended what was there because the whole point of many of my edits (first para of lead refers) is to show that the name Israeli-occupied territories (to which you have now linked) is NOT the correct name for these territories.
Please consider restoring my changes.Selfstudier (talk) 10:09, 20 May 2019 (UTC)
No reason to reconsider. There are some situations in which the passive voice should be used instead of the active voice, but this isn't one of them. And if "territories" is good enough for the title of the article, it's good enough to use here. — MShabazzTalk/Stalk 13:33, 20 May 2019 (UTC)
I've noticed that there is no link to the Wikipedia entry on the organization Hamas, despite the fact that the Hamas page declares that, "[Hamas] has been the de facto governing authority of the Gaza Strip since its takeover of that area in 2007."
Surely the group that is considered the de facto governing authority of the Palestinian territories should have a link to their Wiki when mentioned here. If I could add the link myself I would, but I am unable to due to this page's protected status. Timgrubermiller (talk) 07:53, 16 July 2019 (UTC)
Done. Should have been wikilinked anyway regardless of the governance thing, just overlooked I guess.Selfstudier (talk) 11:20, 16 July 2019 (UTC)
The following is a closed discussion of a requested move. Please do not modify it. Subsequent comments should be made in a new section on the talk page. Editors desiring to contest the closing decision should consider a move review after discussing it on the closer's talk page. No further edits should be made to this discussion.
“Palestine”, “State of Palestine”, “occupied Palestinian territory”: In this report the terms “Palestine”, the “State of Palestine” and “occupied Palestinian Territory” have been used interchangeably depending on context. Specifically the term “occupied Palestinian territory” refers as a whole to the geographical area of the Palestinian territory occupied by Israel since 1967.
Apart from the usage by the UN, the EU and the ICJ already mentioned in the lead, the term is also used, for example, by Oxfam, WHO and Amnesty. A google search on the term will reveal multiple primary and secondary usage. Selfstudier (talk) 15:23, 4 November 2019 (UTC)—Relisting.DannyS712 (talk) 12:38, 12 November 2019 (UTC)
Oppose - It is called Palestinian territories in reliable sources. Interstellarity (talk) 03:13, 9 November 2019 (UTC)

In the lead it says:
The Gaza Strip and the West Bank had been occupied by Egypt and Jordan, respectively, since the 1948 war until 1967.
Can anyone think of a way to phrase this (without being too wordy for a lead) that can encapsulate Jordanian governance as rule and not occupation? Previously it said the territory’s had been “ruled” by Jordan and Egypt....I changed to “occupy to get rid of hypocrisy in regards to Egyptian “rule” vs Israeli “occupation”..,I didn’t want to change lead and make too wordy is why I did not act “boldly” here. Any recommendations appreciated. Zarcademan123456 (talk) 01:09, 28 April 2020 (UTC)
