Wikipedia Israel decided on Monday that it will not remove an item about controversial remarks made by Prime Minister Benjamin Netanyahu on the day of March’s national election in which he stated that "Arabs are going to the polls in droves," after the motion was put to a vote amongst hundreds of Wikipedia editors.
