Wikipedia is an extremely powerful tool that has a huge influence on billions of people.
It is the 4th most popular website (excluding China) with 18 billion page views per month. For many, it is the only encyclopedia they ever use and the main or sole source of information.
This bias is apparent, for instance, with regards to articles on Arab villages abandoned in the 1948 war.
Reading the English article, you get the impression that Irgun attacked the village unprovoked, then Israel arbitrarily destroyed it and expelled the inhabitants. It’s like a microcosm if the entire false “Nakba” narrative of so-called “Ethnic Cleansing”.
How does that happen? Why is Wikipedia so biased?
