Israeli battles rage on Wikipedia

The conflict in the Middle East has spread to the internet with Palestinian and pro-Israeli groups using Wikipedia, the electronic encyclopedia, to push their message.

The pro-Israel group, the Committee for Accuracy in Middle East Reporting in America (Camera) has called for volunteers to edit entries that display notable bias on the site.

A Palestinian aggregator, Electronic Intifada, has exposed the initiative, which it claims was to be a secretive attempt to subvert the spirit of the site.
