  • Elder of Ziyon
The Wikipedia page about Elder of Ziyon has been suggested for "speedy deletion," a special category that bypasses normal discussion. The reason is that someone named "Gouncbeatduke" wrote that "It is an anonymous blog, Wikipedia has no other anonymous blogs with articles. It is anonymous because it is full of illegal Hate speech, Anti-Arabism, and Islamophobia. It is a very bad first choice for an anonymous blog to include in Wikipedia, Wikipedia is promoting illegal Hate speech with this article."

Apparently the page has been vandalized by anti-Israel Wiki editors for months.

The only part of the page left is a reference to a Mondoweiss article that attacked a single article of mine out of over 20,000, a critique which made a couple of valid points that I immediately addressed and I answered the other points.

(Of course, I have shown many times that Mondoweiss articles were filled with pro-terror nonsense and antisemitism, but no one is pointing out the irony of a lying hate site accusing me of inaccuracy.)

The official reason given for deleting the entry is that the article does not give any reasons why this blog is notable. However, this is after they deleted the parts of the entry that explained why it is notable!

Reputation

According to the The Jewish Journal of Greater Los Angeles the blog "serves as a watchdog against anti-Zionism."[8]
The American Zionist Movement has described Elder as "perhaps the most quoted blogger in the area of Middle East politics".[9] The blog has a high rank on Technorati.[10]
The blog has been widely cited by many news organizations, including James Taranto of the Wall Street Journal,[11] Israel HaYom,[12] the Washington Times,[13] and Tablet Magazine.[14]
The blog has been mentioned on CNNFox News, the New York Times, and elsewhere. Blog posts have been cross-published in Algemeiner Journal and Jewish Press.
In April 2013 the blog published a scoop revealing that writers for MIFTAH, a nonprofit founded in 1998 by Palestinian leader Hanan Ashrawi were repeating a centuries-old smear over the Passover holiday on their Arabic Web site, accusing Jews of using Christian blood to prepare the Passover matzoh,[15] causing Algemeiner Journal to name the blog as one of its Jewish 100.[16]
On September 13, 2013 The Jerusalem Report published the article Battle of the Bloggers, which called Elder of Ziyon "perhaps the most influential" pro-Israel blog.[17]
The history page shows how desperate the haters are to discredit me.

Any Wikipedia editors who want to ensure that there is a modicum of respectability at that site are encouraged to do the right thing.

UPDATE: It is back to how it was, not sure how long that will last though.

Elder of Ziyon - حـكـيـم صـهـيـون



This blog may be a labor of love for me, but it takes a lot of effort, time and money. For over 18 years and 38,000 articles I have been providing accurate, original news that would have remained unnoticed. I've written hundreds of scoops and sometimes my reporting ends up making a real difference. I appreciate any donations you can give to keep this blog going.
