TEL AVIV (Ma'an) -- A powerful Israeli settlement group has offered a free hot-air balloon ride to the winner of its new initiative to alter articles on the online information site Wikipedia, an Israeli newspaper reported Wednesday.

The Yesha Council of settlements announced the prize for the "Best Zionist Editor" - the person who over the next four years incorporates the most "Zionist" changes in the encyclopedia, the Israeli daily Haaretz reported.

"The idea is not to make Wikipedia rightist but for it to include our point of view," Naftali Bennett, the director of the Yesha Council, told Haaretz, explaining that it and another right-wing group, Israel Sheli, held their first course Tuesday in Jerusalem.

The course was designed to teach how to register for, contribute to and edit for Wikipedia.

"The Internet is not managed well enough, and Israel's position there is appalling. Take for example the Turkish flotilla [to Gaza]," he explained. "In those first hours millions of people typed the words Gaza-bound flotilla and read what was written on Wikipedia."

The prize is appropriate, a hot air balloon ride for producing hot air.

I fill up with hot air before commenting. Then I get in touch with my Jihadi Arab friends in Ramallah planning suicide missions against Jews to warm them up with encouragement before their holy endeavor.
