Wikipedia editors love fighting about Israel and the Holocaust

This is too perfect/predictable. Researchers have concluded that the most fought over page in Wikipedia is… Israel.

And if that wasn’t enough, two more Jewish-related pages took the silver and bronze — Adolf Hitler and the Holocaust. (I guess you could count #4 as a Jewy one too, but God really belongs to all of us.)

All that said, the English edition doesn’t seem to have such a big Jewish hang-up. In fact, none of those pages showed up on the English Top 10, while Muhammad, Jesus and Christianity did break through. Circumcision did finish #6.

But enough with all of that. Coolest result: “World Wrestling Entertainment, Inc. employees” finished #4 on the English list, behind George W. Bush, Anarchism and Muhammad.
