    Posted: 08 July 2006 at 11:03pm
To my dismay Wikipedia's NPOV (Neutral Point of View) status has NOT been followed. It has turned into a hate mongering cess-pool of pro-Zionist propoganda. If any of you can help, with edits w/sources it would be great.

The articles I propose we FIX are:

http://en.wikipedia.org/wiki/Palestine

http://en.wikipedia.org/wiki/Israel

http://en.wikipedia.org/wiki/State_of_Palestine

http://en.wikipedia.org/wiki/Israeli-Palestinian_conflict

http://en.wikipedia.org/wiki/Operation_Summer_Rains

http://en.wikipedia.org/wiki/Israel_Defense_Forces

http://en.wikipedia.org/wiki/Hamas

http://en.wikipedia.org/wiki/Qana_shelling

http://en.wikipedia.org/wiki/Mossad

http://en.wikipedia.org/wiki/Jenin_massacre


Any constructive help would be great. If you are an admin on Wikipedia all the better. The more people involved on this little project the better.

Thanks,

Reza

asalamalykum, unfortunately wikipedia is a zionist run entity (see ziopedia). But that is something we have to deal with because currently any search in google for an islamic term comes back with wikipedia in the top 10. So unfortunately we have to work with wikipedia.

That said, the good news is that there is now a muslim wikipedia where we can bask in the glow of brother hood :-) and write articles about islam and islam related subjects to our hearts content

asalamalykum Israfil,
that is because no one has written anything about the subject 'Jew' Yet.

The muslim wikipedia is an online encyclopedia where the community enter the information.

So for example, if you are a member of a muslim organisation, or you have a local community, or say you have an islamic book you have read on say Emaan. Then if you are passionate about sharing that Islamic knowledge with the whole world, all you do is

Go to the muslim wikipedia. enter the subject in the search box
type go. If the page already exists you can edit it (you have to be logged in). and if it doesn't already exist a page will come up asking you if you want to create the page. In which case you just click on the yes, and then start editing the page.
Inshallah the article or info doesn't have to be complete, as someone else will come along and add to it, if it needs adding.

I believe this is an absolutey brilliant oppurtunity for muslims to build an encyclopedia on Islam that will present Islam to the world as it should be presented.

Assalamu Alaikum muslimwikipedia,

Good point, Jazak Allah Khair. Is there any control as to what is written there? For example, if someone writes incorrect things about Islam, who corrects that in order to convey the true message of Islam to the world?

Peace

Then which of the favours of your Lord will ye deny?

Muslimwikipedia....your idea is great and very informitive info however I personally wouldn't feel comfortable about writing something on Judaism seeing as me, myself, I am no Jew. Any opinions coming from a Muslim in respect with other religions would in fact be from the prospective of a Muslim therefore, any research, comments etc would be bias. Of course what would help is encourage Jews as well as Christians to write information about their religions as well as Sikhs, Hindus etc to avoid stereotypes and misinformation. I would happily write about philosophy and metaphysics and such....!

Salaam. There are policies in place that explain the Muslim Wikipedia NPOV (No Point of View), and that everything has to be referenced, and that the Muslim Wikipedia is there to Promote every aspect of Islam.
Articles against Islam, or  that are insulting are flagged by the community of muslim wikipedians administrators, and reverted
