Gee. AFP (Agence France Presse) – the same news agency that once tried to sue Google News ’cause Google used their headlines – has now been caught publishing a German text on the Amish that in many parts matches a Wikipedia article... without citing Wikipedia.Article: http://us.rd.yahoo.com/dailynews/rss/searc...e=news&ID=29499

What the Wikipedian in Germany is claiming is that AFP should have credited Wikipedia. What AFP is claiming is that their writer should stay away from Wikipedia because it cannot be cited credibly. Good for AFP -- they have it right.
My "Plagiarism on Wikipedia" results will be coming out in a couple of weeks, but it won't be soon enough!
