For those not familiar with the phenomenon, Wikipedia (www.wikipedia.com)
is a free online encyclopedia of sorts. Since its creation in 2001,
Wikipedia has grown rapidly into one of the largest reference Web
sites.Written collaboratively by volunteers from all around the world,
the articles in Wikipedia can be edited by anyone with access to the
Internet, simply by clicking the "edit this page" link.
Like most other organizations, Wikipedia has an entry for JPFO, which
you can find at http://en.wikipedia.org/wiki/JPFO
. While JPFO did not create the original "wiki" page, we
have since added relevant material to the site. Unfortunately, others
have added their own "spin" as well.
Why do we say that? At various times in the page's history (which
you can view by clicking the "history" tab on the page)
the JPFO wiki page contained some highly misleading statements about
JPFO. Volunteers have corrected them, but someone subsequently erased
the corrections while adapting some of our text to transmit more inaccurate
information. Our volunteers also added additional information about
JPFO's products and positions -- that material was also erased.
Given the nature of Wikipedia, it is likely that those who are bent
on misleading the public can and will continuously modify Wiki pages
to pursue their agenda.
People who want to know more about JPFO can visit our website at
www.jpfo.org or email us at firstname.lastname@example.org.
We welcome questions from anyone on the issues relating to "gun
control", the relationship of "gun control" laws and
policies to genocide and oppression, the analysis of the Second Amendment
in the context of human rights, or any of JPFO's educational products.
We will continue to add to and correct the information on Wikipedia,
supplying links to support our position. It will be interesting to
see how long the accurate facts can sustain on the wiki before it
is again erased or modified by the enemies of a Jewish civil rights
organization that promotes self-defense.
