Hello Animus. I've reverted your last edit to the Czech hub page. The "O webu Wikiislam" article has a few paragraphs that are yet to be translated (here, here and here):

WikiIslam is a community edited website which focuses on the critique of Islam, whilst also allowing pro-Islamic responses in separate articles. It is run on the same software that Wikipedia and other similar sites use.
In December 2006, Göran Larsson presented a paper on WikiIslam at a conference in Sweden. At that point in time, the site was barely out of its infancy, only having been open to the public for three months, and Larsson was very critical. Today, with its new policies, new guidelines, thousands of more pages and the inclusion of pro-Islamic content aimed at presenting a positive image of Islam, WikiIslam remains the same only in name. But even back then in its primitive form, Larsson admitted that he could not label all the site "Islamophobic" in nature.[1]

Contrary to what is sometimes claimed,[2] WikiIslam has not received any attention from news agencies such as the Associated Press (AP), however, its non-partisan approach to criticism has led to the site being linked to or referenced by various notable sites such as[3] and[4] It has also been cited by Dr. Heather Deegan in her book, Africa Today: Culture, Economics, Religion, Security,[5] Prof. Carlos Brebbia in his book, Disaster Management and Human Health Risk III: Reducing Risk, Improving Outcomes,[6] and Dr. Stefan Kirchner in his paper published in the Baltic Journal of Law & Politics.[7]
