Palestinian "Mobs" Take Over Wikipedia

It is not news to most of us that the "other" Arab-Israeli conflict rages across the internet, but a new report from the Jerusalem Post indicates that it is now Wikipedia that is under attack. According to certain editors (who wished to remain anonymous) pro-Palestinian users of Wikipedia are using scurrilous tactics to tilt the Internet Encyclopedia in their favor.

Of course this is not the first time pro-Palestinian people have used illicit tactics to further their cause. Nor is it even the first time they have done so online. But I do find it very ironic that the HPers continually complain about invisible "hasbarists" in every corner of the Internet, while those on the anti-Israel side are quite real and destructive.

  1. I noticed the trend a last year when I would try to research related subjects. It easily became apparent that the information provided on "Wikipedia" had been skewed, always in favor of the "palestinians" and muslims in general..
