Category confusion , help needed.Edit

I recently created Category:Disability in Palestine, then when I added parent categories I found Health in the State of Palestine. Some further digging turned up more of the "X in the State of..." categories, so I moved the one I created to Category:Disability in the State of Palestine. I'm not sure if there is a consistent logical distinction between the "X in the State of Palesine" versus "X in Palestine" categories. So here I am just needing a sanity check please. I'm aware that many Palestine-related topics are on a "hair trigger" as far as the curation/protection of articles are concerned, does that also apply to categories? Roger (Dodger67) (talk) 10:55, 16 December 2020 (UTC)

The state observer status of Palestine in the United Nations is recent, so it's likely categories without 'state' were simply made earlier. I do think a standardization would be good. Using 'State of Palestine' as format going forward seems like good idea for eventual consistency. ~ Shushugah (talk) 17:40, 24 January 2021 (UTC)

Another thingEdit

When I (or someone else) get around to starting "Disability in (the State of) Palestine" article, what should the title be? It is one of the aims of WikiProject Disability to create such articles for every country. We hope to turn all the links in the Template:Disability by country navbox blue as soon as possible.

I have now started Draft:Disability in the State of Palestine, please feel free to contribute. Roger (Dodger67) (talk) 19:00, 18 December 2020 (UTC)
Thank you for this! I will have a look and contribute soon! The naming is right. Though, I expect we'll need to make redirects to the shorter version as well. Shushugah (talk) 22:04, 21 March 2021 (UTC)
Hi Shushugah, I'd really appreciate your input. I've created a few sections following the general pattern of other "Disability in <Country>" articles, but I'm having some difficulty finding good sources. I don't know Arabic so that does limit me to only English publications. Roger (Dodger67) (talk) 07:11, 13 April 2021 (UTC)


I have added {{refbegin|35em|indent=yes}} to the Biblio-section in Sarafand al-Kharab; before I do more, I would like to hear what other editors think about it? Do you think that got the Biblio-section more/less readable? Comments, please! Huldra (talk) 21:28, 21 March 2021 (UTC)
