United Against Knowledge

by Gilad Atzmon / August 21st, 2010

The Guardian reported that two Israeli groups have set up training courses in  subversive Wikipedia editing aiming  to ’show the other side’ of the Jewish State.

Those who lend their pen to the Palestinian cause know about Wikipedia Jews,
a term that was coined a few years ago. It refers to a bunch of rabid
and crypto Zionists who constantly vandalise encyclopaedia entries to
do with Palestine, Palestinian activists and Israeli atrocities.

According to the Guardian two Israeli groups seeking to gain the
upper hand in the online debate have launched a course in “Zionist

Yesha Council, representing the Jewish settler movement ran their
first workshop this week in Jerusalem, teaching participants how to
‘rewrite’ and ‘revise’ some of the most “hotly disputed pages of the
online reference site.”

The Wikipedia project is a phenomenal humanist and
universalist  initiative. Hence, it should not take us by surprise that
its biggest opponents are  tribal operators, amongst them Zionists,
crypto Zionists and the so called ‘Jewish anti Zionists’.

One Jerusalem-based Wikipedia editor, told the Guardian
that publicising the new Zionist conspiratorial initiative might not be
such a ‘good idea’. “Going public in the past has had a bad effect,”
she says. “There is a war going on and unfortunately the way to fight
it has to be underground.”

One may be surprised to discover that chief amongst ‘Wikipedia Jews’
is alleged ‘Anti Zionist’ Roland Rance.  Rance, is a London based
Jewish Marxist who spends  most of his time peppering Wikipedia entries
with Judeo-centric context. Roland Rance was also  one of the leading opponents of Deir Yassin Remembered  (DYR),   probably the most successful Palestinian solidarity operation in the UK. 

Here is a snapshot of Rance’s relentless attempt to vandalise Israel Shamir’s Wikipedia entry last week. (Click on image for zoom.)

Wikipedia Jews have history behind them. According to the Guardian,
in 2008, members of the hawkish pro-Israel watchdog Camera who secretly
planned to edit Wikipedia were banned from the site by administrators.
There is a war  going on my own Wikipedia entry. More than once, Wikipedia Administrators have been called in just to remove contamination by Rance and other Zionists.

The Wikipedia project is all about knowledge and the
availability of knowledge. Is it a coincidence that political Jews in
the right and in the left are united to subvert this project? I do not
think so. Once again we come across what seems to be  Zionist
continuum. They are all united against knowledge.

Apparently The organisiers of the  Zionist Wikipedia
courses, are already planning a competition to find the “Best Zionist
editor”, with a prize of a hot-air balloon trip over Israel.  I guess
that by now we know who should be the candidate for the blue &
white air balloon adventure.
