comment What was the custom/consensus regarding irregular combatants 19th century?
If something is morally correct or not can perhaps be discussed at philosophy.SE. But it certainly is not a question of history.

Fixed factual incorrectness.

Of course they knew who they were. They were infamous and had been finally caught after an intense manhunt just a few months before the Olympics. Baader-Meinhof was communist terrorists, just like the Black September was. This is probably why.

comment What was the Julian Calendar aligned to?
I did that. I can't find any reference to it being celebrated three days after Noctis, nor in fact any information about what "Noctis" would be.

References, please. All information I can find claims that Sol Invictus was the 25th. No one says it was three days after the solstice, which is not the same thing.

Both RI Swamp Yankees answer and ComeAndGo's comment are correct. Meaning that this is a matter of opinion.

comment What was the Julian Calendar aligned to?
And the Spring Equinox the 23rd of March, it seems. So it seems they aligned the first year to the first day of the moon in which the Spring Equinox would happen. I'm actually quite surprised that it's the 23rd. I would have expected it to be the 25th, so the Winter solstice would have been the 25th as well.

Yes, that's what I thought to, and so it is. 46 BC was the long year, so 45 BC (or year -44) was the first year of the new calendar, and indeed, the full moon is on the Ides of March. eclipse.gsfc.nasa.gov/phase/phases-0099.html

"My guess is that, even if they tried to keep the first few 15th's of March still on sync with the full moon" Nope, they were fully aware of that going to a solar calendar they would loose the sync to the full moon. Perhaps they were syncing the first year to a full moon, though. All of the rest is good.

comment At which times did a mainly Jewish sovereign state control Jerusalem?
@DVK: Well, the Canaanites, as well as the people of Judah and Israel got conquered as well. One of the conquerors even brag about moving loads of people out of there and moving a lot of other people in. That's probably way more radical than anything that happened in England. Sure, it's mostly the same gene-pool, with some additions, but is that really a reason to stop talking about Canaanites, and rename them Jews?

@michel-slm Interesting idea, that could very well be possible. I really don't have a clue though.

comment At which times did a mainly Jewish sovereign state control Jerusalem?
@jwenting Questions: When exactly did the Romans move out and the Italians move in? When did the Vikings move out and the Swedes move in? When did the Gauls move out and the French move in? "to claim modern Italy is the old Roman empire is rather a stretch of the imagination" - I claim no such thing. Please re-read.

comment Why was Iceland not a part of the Danish-Swedish deal in Kiel in 1814?
There is nothing that supports this claim. Sweden simply did not ask for Iceland. It's that easy.Ref: svd.se/kultur/understrecket/…

(Also, these are the names historians/archaeologists use, while they themselves are likely to have used something else).
