Something Stinks In This Wiki Entry

My son drew my attention to an unintentionally amusing Wiki entry about "The Third Intifada":
Third intifada (Persian:انتفاضه سوم) (Arabic:الانتفاضة الثالثة) A new movement that is happening in Palestine. Raed Salah the head of the Palestinian Islamic movement in the occupied territories of 1948, in an interview with news agency "Anatolia" announced the continuation of the current situation in Al-Aqsa Intifada expecting a not unlikely other.[1][2][3] British politician George Galloway, in a brief message on his Twitter account that "appears to be a new intifada in Palestine is about to begin. In any case, as soon as the formation of the intifada, I'll take the last breath of God, I will support it.[4][5][6]“The Zionist regime (of Israel) is taking advantage of regional conditions to accelerate the Judaization of al-Quds,” Iranian Deputy Foreign Minister for Arab and African Affairs Hossein Amir Abdollahian said on Monday. “Undoubtedly, these measures along with the continuation of settlement construction and detention of Palestinian activists will prepare the ground for the third Intifada,” Amir Abdollahian underscored.[7] The demolition of the al-Aqsa Mosque, which is one of Israel’s strategic plans, will probably lead to the Third Intifada.

I suspect that the first language of the person who wrote these clunky lines is--just a shot in the dark, mind you--Farsi.

Wiki informs us that this entry is "being considered for deletion," a sign that we aren't the only ones who don't think it passes the sniff test.
