 StarCraft Compendium: Protoss Strategy   (Site not responding. Last check: )
The Protoss Zealots can easily overpower Terran Marines (they can take two Marines for every one Zealot) but with the cost and build time difference between the two units, Zealots have to be wary of being vastly outnumbered.
When engaging, try and avoid group selecting all of your Zealots and commanding to attack a single Marine since that will most likely result in your Zealots wandering around, trying to circle around each other to reach the target while the other enemy Marines get their free hits in from a distance.
Like the Zealots against Bunkers, you can attempt to quickly make it past the detection abilities of the Missile Turrets, however, if Bunkers filled with Marines are nearby you may want to retreat and wait for a later opportunity to use your Dark Templar.

 Zealots for third Jewish temple   (Site not responding. Last check: )
JERUSALEM, Jan 16 (AFP) - At a time when the future of Jerusalem's Temple Mount is a key issue in Israeli-Palestinian talks, authorities are increasingly worried about a small group of zealots who are determined to reconstruct the Jewish temple, in the belief it will hasten the coming of the Messiah.
Torahs in hand, several hundred extremists have been gathering the props they need for the Third Jewish temple: incense; ash brooms for animal burnt offerings; silver lyres, harps and trumpets; priests' beige linen uniforms, and an enormous chandelier with seven branches of solid gold.
One of the chief obstacles: the zealots need to find the all-red cow whose ashes will anoint future priests.
