Many Wikipedia editors are, and have been veering off the "reliable source" path in order to insert their own opinion about the JIDF throughout Wikipedia servers. We wonder how many other Jewish organizations are facing these problems? Perhaps we need to join forces in an effort to fight them?
Today we noticed that the Jewish Internet Defense Force and the Jerusalem Center for Public Affairs were both labeled as "extremist websites" by a certain editor, who we feel is (along with many others) intent on systematically trying to discredit the Israeli narrative from the Wikipedia itself.
Of course, no reliable sources were brought in to back this claim. It is also not true. We hope that Wikipedia ArbCom and/or Oversight will take the necessary actions against editors intent on inserting bias and defamation into the project while we consider our options to fight these issues.
This is just one tiny issue (like the one below about hummus) out of many much more serious ones on the Wikipedia project with regard to Jews, Jewish organizations, and Israel.
