Well after Isarig who is some Jayjg suckup/employee from Hasbara Fellowships got his preferred edit in, Jayjg protected the article and then promptly went on vacation for almost 6 months. Jayjg of course wouldn't protect it like this until Isarig got the version in Jayjg liked.

So this appeared on Jayjg's talk page about 6 months after it was fully protected:
Hi, you fully protected this article over 4 months ago. Is it now OK to reduce or lift the protection? WjBscribe 01:36, 5 January 2008 (UTC)
Well Jayjg took two days to answer because he never edits on the Sabbath.
There doesn't appear to have been any discussion whatsoever on the page since the protection, and I fear that removal of the protection would lead to more sterile reverting. I supposed I could un-protect, with the proviso that anyone who reverts without Talk: page agreement would be blocked - what do you think? Jayjg (talk) 03:23, 7 January 2008 (UTC)
1) Nobody unprotected it for 6 months because of fear of Jayjg.
2) Jayjg still says it should be protected. Insane!
3) Wikipedia actually lets an article be fully protected that long.
