Abstract

Since launching nearly six years ago, Wikipedia has exhibited sustained growth as an internet encyclopaedic resource. Amongst the millions of pages, the 2006 Israel-Lebanon conflict is one of the most revised and popular topics of all, ranking even above the Second World War. Why is this and what do Wikipedia and its daughter project, Wikinews, have to offer history, academia and journalism in their coverage of the Middle East?
