Zionizing Wikipedia


Ah, my youthful infatuation with Israel is just about entirely gone.

At least the conservatives just started their own damn wiki, wherein they can write whatever nonsense they like. But that's not good enough for these folks, who want to "make sure that information in the online encyclopedia reflects the worldview of Zionist groups."

Note: not: reflects
the facts, mind you. Rather: reflects their preferences.

A quote from one Miriam Schwab, one of the Wikipedia zionizers:

“In general, it’s so important for us to be online working to defend ourselves and to prove to the world and to ourselves that we are just and we are right.”

Again: not to get the facts straight. Rather, to help convince others--and themselves--that they are right.

Propaganda, that is.

Thus will Wikipedia eventually die out. I don't see how it can survive if enough groups like this make concerted efforts to skew it in their preferred directions.

[Oh, and: "people from the U.S. and Europe never hear about Israel's side"??????????????????. WTFFFF? WTF alternative reality is this person living in? It's almost the only side we ever hear. Jesus these people.]

Oh and, as one Redditor noticed/pointed out, they say their goals is to "
be there; to influence what is written there, how it’s written and to ensure that it is balanced and Zionist in nature.” It's one or the other, bud. One or the other...]
