Israeli "trolls" on Wikipedia, Facebook, Twitter, etc.

People should be aware that Wikipedia, Facebook and other places sometime contain individuals who post items while misleading people about their identities.

Please keep in mind that facebook and other online forums are in many ways anonymous and, according to several articles in the israeli media and elsewhere, are infiltrated by IDF soldiers and students with false identities. See, for example http://www.israelnationalnews.com/News/News.aspx/142374#.UHjVdRgYLuw and http://electronicintifada.net/content/ei-exclusive-pro-israel-groups-plan-rewrite-history-wikipedia/7472 and http://electronicintifada.net/blogs/ali-abunimah/israeli-students-get-2000-spread-state-propaganda-facebook

I expect that some of the posts critical of me originate with such "trolls," as they are apparently called.
