Wikipedia editors needed to counter Israeli lies

Millions of people use Wikipedia for research. It isn’t always reliable information but it’s a useful place to begin research. Many people naively rely on it. Many entries on the conflict between Israel & Palestinians have the hand of Israeli hasbara (in the sense of propaganda) written all over them--sometimes in subtle ways, sometimes quite blatantly. You can find a raft of entries just by entering the name of a West Bank village like Nablus or Jenin & following the links. Wikipedia articles can be edited & challenged by individuals who sign on to the site--which is free & easy. It would be a good project for a knowledgeable Palestinian supporter to correct the lies supporting Israeli apartheid.
