I´m also editing streets in gaza and created this preset for me:

    * open your favorite text editor
    * insert the following:

    <item name="road-source" icon="">
        <key key="source" value="WPGS_WMS2m" />
        <key key="highway" value="road" />

(you can easily add more items in this file, see 

    * save it as gaza-preset.xml
    * open JOSM
    * open Preferences, go to Map Settings (3rd tab)
    * add your file at the "Tagging Preset Sources"
    * restart JOSM
    * if you want, you can move the preset in your toolbar for quick use
      (Preferences, Toolbar costomization)

If this instruction is good enough, i can put it on the wiki page. A 
icon for this preset would be nice, ideas?
