PA to Pay for Palestinian Editors on Wikipedia?

In response to the controversy of Zionist Wikipedia editors, the Palestinian Journalists Syndicate plans to "set up counter editing groups."

The union's head, Abdul Nasser An-Najar, told Maan News that he's going to ask the PA for funding.

That would definitely politicize Wikipedia. I wonder if escalation in the Wiki-wars will generate the same big-media attention.

As someone who cares about Israel and tries to defend it from dishonest, exaggerated criticism, I have said time and time again that one of the worst enemies of Israel are the MOUTHS OF ISRAELIS.

Why did these idiots announce that they want to edit wikipedia? They told media outlets, did TV interviews, etc. How moronic are these people? It made worldwide headlines, and now there's a backlash against Israel for it. Why do Israelis not understand how to close their damn mouths? This seriously drives me so crazy it almost makes me want to give up on Israel.
