United Against Knowledge

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 editing”.

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.

    Could this be the same ‘Yesha’ Council which, during the bloodthirsty, cowardly and carefully planned Israeli onslaught against Lebanon in 2006, published the opinions of ‘Rabbis and Torah Sages’ who declared that, under Judaic religious law,killing civilians was not just permissible, but a religiously sanctified ‘mitzvah’or good deed? International humanitarain law, which outlaws such slaughter, was contemptuously dismissed as ‘Christian morality’.
    These creatures display one of the central features of dementia zionistica-the laughable belief that the Zionist and Israeli position is somehow repressed, as the Palestinians control the media. In the world of reality such opinions are ludicrous, but,in the intensely narcissistic and self-pityingly maudlin mentality of the Zionist, the mere presence, from time to time, of a brief mention of the reality of Israel’s crimes and the true nature of Zionism as a form of Judaic fascism and and intense racial supremacism, amongst the oceans of mainstream apologias and paeans to Israel’s non-existent ‘morality’, elicits real outrage. When you start from the position of absolute faith in your own absolute superiority to the rest of creation and the worthlessness of your victims and their society, any resistance is seen as impious and evil. Dealing with creatures who think like this, who control the West politically and economically and who possess hundreds, if not thousands,of thermo-nuclear weapons, remains one of the planet’s most intractable dangers.

    Frankly the only thing we believers in dated values such as “truth” and “justice” can do to counter the Wikipedia Zionists is 1) Expose their cabals, and 2) Correct their hasbara edits as they are posted. With any luck the high-level Wikipedia admins will again be fed up with their propaganda, doublethink, racism, and predilection for drama and just decide to ban the whole lot like they did with Camera back in 2008. Or they’ll deal with them on an individual basis. But realize that Wikipedia will always present an inherently biased and incomplete version of reality, as determined by their most active/favored users who go on to become admins.

    Also, linking to Encyclopedia Dramatica in a DV article? Sweet. I lol’d hard at this:

    Wikipedia has been a sham from the very beginning. It’s an advert site. A free one. The “wikipedia Jews” have been there from its inception, probably set the thing up. And guardian is totally hypocritical about this, as they are a zionist rag, and their wikipedia site is an advert, where criticism of their hasbara activities (and criticism of them in general) is studiously deleted almost immediately. Wikipedia was designed to promote disinformation from the very beginning, it’s set up the make sure what gets posted there will be disinformation.

    They should have been class action sued out of existence years ago.
