There are plenty of non-trivial references to this organisation in reliable sources, which is the criteria for inclusion. I don't speak enough German to reliably parse the sources, but this news search turns up a lot, as does these scholar and book searches, which reveal a high level of coverage. I'm sure enough coverage exists to justify this organisation, as suggested by the greater content on de. Mostlyharmless (talk) 05:24, 10 November 2008 (UTC)

Actually, unless I have misread, the criterion is "significant", not "non-trival". And passing mentions, or descriptions of activity without editorial commentary, is not (in my opinion) "significant". Likewise, inference from number of Google hits in a foreign langauge (whether news or otherwise) does not demonstrate notability. However, the fact that you removed the {prod} means that it's more than sufficient to require it to be taken to AfD for deletion. If you add some real sources (in English) within a few days, I'll refrain. Bongomatic 05:50, 10 November 2008 (UTC)
"Significant coverage is more than trivial but may be less than exclusive". I don't read German, so am unable to make use of the vast majority of sources. With coverage that extensive, I assume notability, but of course cannot prove it by adding sources in a language I do not understand. I've asked for assistance at Wikiproject Germany, where German speakers can evaluate the sources. (talk) 08:22, 10 November 2008 (UTC)
Yes, but that is an amplification of, not an alternative to the criterion that it must "address the subject directly in detail". Bongomatic 08:26, 10 November 2008 (UTC)


The German political system makes it necessary that every party has a foundation which can do something the parties are not allowed to do. They get their money from Federal Ministry of the Interior (Germany) and the Federal Ministry of Economic Cooperation and Development (Germany). The normal spectrum of work is political education, publication and cotact to parties with similar political direction in foreign contries. So I think as the party is worth a article the foundation can also have one. --Stone (talk) 10:21, 10 November 2008 (UTC)

The incident with Amira HassEdit

This was discussed at Talk:Birzeit University#Regarding exclusion in October last year. To put it simply, there is no policy to exclude Jews. --IRISZOOM (talk) 20:15, 28 April 2015 (UTC)
