1435Israel Shamir's Book Banned
- Nov 1, 2003451°F
by Israel Shamir
(Update on the decision of the French publisher, Balland, to withdraw
and burn my book «L'Autre Visage d'Israël » after being threatened
The story of the short life and untimely demise of my book l'Autre
Visage d'Israël the French translation of The Galilee Flowers (in
English it is available in PDF and can be downloaded on
http://www.israelshamir.net/english/galileeflowersbook.pdf , for
French book write to bordax@... ) is an interesting case of study
in Jewish influence in France.
Its main characters are
- a good man, Franck Spengler of Blanche publishers,
- the owner of Balland, Denis Bourgeois, ex-chairman of Calmann-
and a Jewish Zionist site.
The book was published by Editions Blanche, a subsidiary of Editions
Balland on 9 October, 03 and immediately a French Zionist website,
called www.proche-orient.info attacked my book. In a long and
tedious diatribe, a Johan Weisz, insisted the book is criminal
under `hate laws' for it calls for the alliance of Christendom and
It was not surprising: the Jews abrogated to themselves the supreme
right to decide whom the rest should love or hate. As if the two
world wars in the last century won't suffice, now they insist the
Christians and the Muslims should fight to the end, for the greater
glory of Israel.
My immediate publisher, good Franck Spengler of Blanche publishers,
rejected the claims of the Zionist hate-mongers in a witty letter to
the owner of Balland, Denis Bourgeois (see below).
But Denis Bourgeois received his job after proving his devotion to
the cause on the position of the chairman of Calmann-Levy, a big
Jewish publishing company. After hearing His Master's Voice, Denis
Bourgeois ordered the book off the shelves and to the stake. This
is the way of Jewish influence: buying publishers, promoting their
own devotees and eventually scrapping the freedom of press and the
freedom of speech.
The aristocracy of the Ancient Regime of pre-revolutionary France
were not sufficiently cynical to invent the `hate crime' statutes,
and that was their undoing. If they were to hire Johan Weisz,
Voltaire would be sentenced for `hate-crime' and France would now be
safely ruled by Louis, say, 25th . The Brits did not know they could
accuse George Washington of `denigrating and demonising the whole
people, innocent English women and men'. But an inner voice tells me
George Washington or Maximilian Robespierre would remain nonplussed.
I have no quarrel with the Zionist site: they just do their usual
worst. But the French stooges of theirs, the likes of Denis
Bourgeois, who prepare the Judeo-American occupation of France,
should be outed. They pave the road for the American tanks on their
way from Baghdad, to Paris. They fully participate in destruction of
Rafah, in massacres of Gaza and Jenin, in preparation of the assault
on Damascus and Teheran. It is because of them President Chirac was
forced into humiliating `condemning' of the daring Dr Mahathir. They
have no arguments, but money and power they misuse to shut up the
voices of opposition. France can't be free and lead the world to
freedom until these stooges are exposed and denounced.
You may wish to express your feelings to Denis Bourgeois

and noble Franck Spengler blanche@...
We should not allow our enemies to adopt and misuse the antiracist
banner. They do not deserve it. Recently, an Israeli newspaper Maariv
published an article claiming: "If we are forced to send the flower
of the nation into the hell of war, then surely we have the right to
remove millions of another race that breeds like vermin. For we are
fighting not for ourselves but for the whole world". The article did
not cause any surprise in Israel or in Jewish communities abroad,
though it was written many years ago, and unknown to them, by Adolf
Hitler. The publication of Hitler's article and following lack of
response by the Israeli public staged a convincing experiment: the
Zionist discourse fully inverted and appropriated the Nazi propaganda
The Jews and their stooges became the great producers of hate
propaganda. In France and Italy they support publication and
distribution of Oriana Falacci, in Canada (Daniel Pipes in Israel
Asper's National Post) they write about "Muslims raping blond girls',
in the US, a Nazi list recommends many pro-Jewish books, including
America's Real War by Rabbi Daniel Lapin, Slander: Liberal Lies About
the American Right, by Ann H. Coulter, Invasion: How America Still
Welcomes Terrorists Criminals & Other Foreign Menaces to Our Shores,
by Michelle Malkin. This last book bears a following explanation by
an American ultra-racist: "Invasion by Michelle Malkin is perhaps the
most important book written this year. The subject of the book is
immigration and we need to stop it now. MUSLIM TERRORISTS are
Most devoted philosemites Robert Spencer and David Pryce-Jones
published Islam Unveiled: Disturbing Questions About the World's
Fastest Growing Faith. The same racist comments: "Islam Unveiled is a
deeply unsettling book because it offers scant hope that the West can
live at peace with Islam unless the religion changes radically, and
even less hope that that is possible".
All these books are freely disseminated in Europe, Canada and the US,
for so-called `anti-hate laws' and `antiracist campaigns' are done
for Jewish benefit only. Nobody yet succeeded to apply them against
Jewish racists and hate-mongers. People who privatised antiracism are
the fighting arm of organised Jewry. In France, they are called
LICRA, while their German equivalent is called ANTIFA. The
representative of LICRA, a Marc Lévy, threatened the publisher with
These thugs pretend to be antiracists. But they are sub-agencies of
the ADL, `the biggest non-state spy agency in the world' in words of
our friend Jeff Blankfort. Here is a picture to demonstrate it:
On the picture: Antifa, a German equivalent of the French LICRA,
demonstrate under the Zionist flags in honour of "Bomber" Harris, the
British mass-murderer who killed millions of innocent people during
the WWII. Harris surpassed Eichmann, but he killed Goyim, not Jews,
that is why he is feted by the racist Zionist thugs.
Don't say, `Jews', say `Zionists', wrote my caring readers. It is not
difficult to comply with this request, but is it increasingly
meaningless. Now in Australia there is a vicious campaign against
Hanan Ashrawi, the wonderful countrywoman of mine. Peter Wertheim,
the former President of the Jewish Deputies' Board, published an op-
ed piece in The Sydney Morning Herald (owned by Conrad Black, who
also owns the Jerusalem Post, the Daily Telegraph and what not) in
which he wrote that opposition to Ashrawi is not coming from `zionist
lobby' but from the entire Jewish Community. However, no
cries `Racist!' came out of Antifa, Licra, ADL and the rest.
The word `Zionist' lost its lustre. An average Jewish supporter of
Sharon, whether in France or in the US, does not call himself `a
Zionist' anymore. He may hate Palestinians, call for war with Syria,
believe in Jewish superiority, but he won't answer to `Zionist'. This
term is used exclusively by the people who do not dare to use J-word.
They do not dare for a good reason. Lenni Brenner wrote
recently: "the Jews are the richest ethnic or religious stratum in
the US, and the true believer minority still has an unbelievable
amount of money to throw at the politicians". They are not the guys
you want to upset.
The word `Zionist' is a misnomer. In 1920s, French Jews formed a
conspiracy to buy and control some French newspapers, as Simcha
Epstein reported on the Vidal Sassoon conference on antisemitism in
Jerusalem. I wrote about it, but no French newspaper dared to
cover it though Le Monde and Liberacion condemned my words
(craftily avoiding reference to Epstein's report) as `antisemitism'.
Why should we blame it on `Zionists' when these Jews were no
A few days ago, Russian police arrested Mr Chodorkovsky, a Jewish
billionaire, one of the richest men on earth, for tax\evasion. Jewish-
owned newspapers from the Jerusalem Post to the New York Times
condemned the arrest. Mr Chodorkovsky is no Zionist. Should we still
describe the international effort to support him as `Zionist'?
The Jews Dr Mahathir encountered were not Zionists, either, but
people of George Soros who robbed his country of ten years of
earnings. Why should we blame it on Zionists?
For us, the Israelis, there is an additional difficulty. It is fine
for the progressive US (or French) Jews to blame `Zionists',
but `Zionists' this is us, and we feel the blame should be shared
between all supporters of the present policies of Israel. Very few
Israelis describe themselves as `Zionists', as very few Russians of
Gorbachev's days would agree to be called `Bolshie' or `Commie'.
Moreover, the State of Israel is not called a Zionist state, but a
state of the Jewish people, and this is not an empty word. People who
identify with the Jewish people the media lords, the executives of
the ADL and plethora of Jewish organizations, extremely rich American
and European Jews have a decisive say in what happens here, much more
than an average Israeli `Zionist'.
For us, Israelis, the solution is not `de-Zionisation' (emigration?),
but `de-Jewification'. In order to exit the impasse we should break
the ties with the Jewish people, for they support the worst our
country can produce. Without them, without their dreams of
superiority, we shall have a fighting chance to achieve normality and
make peace with Palestinians.
It is equally important for you. Me and my `anti-Zionist' Jewish
friends receive daily requests to write or speak in defence of
Palestinians, against the war in Iraq, against plans to bomb Iran,
for the ordinary people (`Goyim') feel that their voices are not
heard. A Jew, like a member of the Party in Soviet days, is the only
one who can express his opinion, they think. The rest some five
billion people do not count. Indeed, a mainstream newspaper
whether in France or in the US quotes Jews much more frequently
than it quotes usual native people. If a man dares to criticise some
Jewish setup he does it crawling on all four like making a remark to
his King. It is an unbearable situation. It should be changed, and
the `fear of Jews' should be broken in the interests of
The subterfuge of `Zionists' does not work anyway for everybody knows
what do you mean. Johan Weisz who attacked me and my book on the
Zionist French site, wrote: "Shamir frequently mentions the
Palestinian intellectual Edward Said with whom he shares the vision
of Palestine "from Jordan to the Sea", without however sharing the
determination of Said against holocaust denial and antisemitism". But
all sympathy of Said to Jews, and all his strict appellation
of `Zionism' label did not help him a bit: the same Jews who approve
his `lack of antisemitism' poisoned life of our dear and much
lamented Edward Said while he was alive and besmirched his memory
after his untimely death.
In the US, more and more ordinary people of Jewish origin break with
the Jewish people. "My people are American", said Gershwin, and,
according to Lenni Brenner, more that half of children of the Jewish
parents opt out. It is a blessed phenomenon. Everyone can opt out and
become a regular American, French, Palestinian. I know it from my
personal experience: when I was received in the Church, my readers
wrote to me saying, "Now your opinion won't be heard anymore for you
ceased to be a Jew". I do not want a special position, I replied, I
want to be heard as Israel Adam Shamir, not as a Jew. I did not
regret it for a moment. "They think I am important because I belong
to Ireland, said Stephen, the main character of Ulysses, but I think
Ireland will be important because of me."
That is why I send my congratulations to the Jewish Lobby of France
that proved its valour and ability to protect the French from
uncomfortable ideas. They indeed rule the West, because the West
submits to their rule. My deep condolences to my marvellous French
translator, Marcel Charbonnier, my editor Maria Poumier, and to
everybody else who helped to publish the book. I am certain that its
ideas will live on, for if paper burns down at 451º F, the human
spirit remains invincible.

The LETTER OF FRANCK SPENGLER
The Editor in Chief and Publisher of EDITIONS BLANCHE
To DENIS BOURGEOIS, the owner of EDITIONS BALLAND
1) www.proche-orient.info (The Middle East Info) is an organization
completely devoted to the Zionist cause and its role is to counter
any discussion of this movement.
Last March they already launched a campaign against Shamir in the
French media to disparage and smear a man who does not think like
2) The various extracts which they quote are in fact a catalogue of
what it would be forbidden to say about the Jewish community and/or
This rejection of criticism clearly characterizes a hegemonic will of
the thought, which is denounced by Shamir. One finds thus the
following critiques are forbidden:
- Critique of certain social behaviour (it would then be necessary to
ban Marx and Freud to which often Shamir refers).
- Critique of the visible alliance with the United States.
Critique of the importance in the United States of the role of the
Jewish lobby (others before Shamir however already denounced it).
- Critique of the Protocols of Zion which are largely suspected by
historians of any origin.
- Critique of Israeli policies with respect to the Palestinians and
comparison with Apartheid or the Nazism (this sharp criticism is
supported not only by Shamir).
- Ban of the quotations which criticize the use of Shoah (which is
never disputed by Shamir) to justify a behaviour quite as criminal.
The Germans, after being attacked, shot hostages; the Zionists carry
out "reprisal operation". I will have to be explained the fundamental
difference from the point of view of the victims...
- Ban on critical words, such as: vehemence, Judeo-American bourgeois
thought, Pharisee, Ideology, religious organization, influence, etc.
in association with the variations of "Jew".
We are there in full ideological war with a skin-rush reaction to
criticism, a dangerous vision of the world, which one has the right
(the duty?) to fight if it appears harmful to the good of the world
(it is so in my case).
Therefore, very sincerely, and beyond any economic considerations, I
do not see anything which could justify withdrawing the book of
Shamir off the sale. This complaint is nothing but an ideological
denunciation of critique of the Zionist interests. The self-criticism
or the critique by a member of the community is unbearable for them.
More worrying, there is no answer to Shamir's claims. The author of
the letter is satisfied to list the forbidden thoughts. It extremely
resembles the Stalinism in its full beauty. I do not agree to pass
under the yoke of the most brutal Zionism.
I would finish my remonstration by a quote from Shamir's book (p.260)
which supports my opinion better than a long speech: "Introduction of
fury, hatred and vengefulness into a discussion of the adversary is a
potent traditional Jewish ideological weapon." The MiddleEast.Info is
the perfect illustration of his words.
In conclusion, dear Denis, I do not agree with the withdrawal of
Shamir's book. A retreat would cause indignation, for if this book
disturbs, as expected, it should be fought on its assertions by
disputes, in a combat of ideas. But by God, never with the pretext of
what one is not allowed to say. Its withdrawal it from the sales
would make us appear as people without conscience, at best, and as
cowards, at worst. I am neither one nor the other.
From John Joerg, the US
Congratulations! The Zionists make you sound like a true Beast! And
those poor, innocent French! Voila!
Now you are in the company of Baudelaire! who had Les Fleurs du Mal
burnt by the hangman!
Now I know how to achieve instant fame. Write a play with a Jew as
the villain. When the Jewish community expresses it's horror,
immediately apologize, make the villain an Arab and the hero a Jew.
Content doesn't matter. It would be an instant success. You could
sell the movie rights for a couple of million, get a job as a
columnist on the New York Times or run for public office, like
governor. The only thing about it is you wouldn;t be able to have any
mirrors in your home because you could never look yourself in the eye
Best wishes in solidarity,
From Adam Engel, New York
(a frequent Counterpunch author and a friend)
Goddamn them. It's interesting, I don't usually receive hate mail or
threats regarding articles I've written, but when I do, it's almost
always from Zionists who can't take a joke (true, my jokes are
directed at them, what happened to the universally renowned "Jewish
humour?"). Since I'm a Jew -- by birth at any rate -- I would have
to call these threats by said Zionists pure anti-Semitism. Israel,
you are a VICTIM of the most dangerous class of anti-Semite since
the Nazis packed up and moved to Argentina (and Washington, D.C.). I
don't read French very well, but I'm okay with a dictionary in hand.
I'll try to get the book before the Zionists burn it.
Peace or Perish,

My dear friend,
I feel very sad and bitter reading your email. What a shame !
Indeed, i can only agree that the zionists zelots are ruling the
world and they are proving it !!!!!
As my company is also a publisher and editor of my own books, please
give me some time to read your book and have a meeting with my
lawyers because i should be interested to publish all your books in
France and specially this one.
However, i need about one month to settle everything because indeed,
any time you are against Israël in our country, the zionist lobby
treats you as antisemitic which has nothing to do with it.
I can only recall what M. JOSPIN said at the national assembly :
"La démocratie, c'est le droit de penser, d'écrire et de publier" !!!
Where is democracy ????
God bless you
Is not book burning the tactic of Adolf Hitler whom the Jews love to
hate? They show the proverb to be true : "Learn from your enemies
lest you become like them".
I have read your essays for some time and with minor reservations
agree with you. I send you my heartfelt support and any comfort you
may receive from a kindred spirit. The banning of your writings is
truly the sign of their accuracy.
May God bring peace to men whose hearts are His.
Sincerely, Kirk Pearson

I shall send it a couple of newspapers in Egypt. I have contacted two
editors of integrity here to buy all copies of your book before it is
burnt.. I hope we have the time.. But if we don't, it will only help
to make yr name BIGGER! Keep a smile on your face!
I have also asked those guys to support me translating the book. If
they burn, you will still have the text.. Better still, in Arabic as
well as English!!!
Feel Good man! Congratulations on getting burnt!

I was in Lebanon when I had your mail saying you were publishing a
Paris, and you'll never believe it, but my first reaction was: "I
buy it the very first day it will be published (and so I did),
sure they will withdraw it from the market the very next day".
Shit! I could have been a prophet if I had believed in God...
Hope you're fine anyway.
From Lucille Spacek, the US
Dear Mr. Shamir,
Nice going!!! You know you've made it to the top of the Light, when
your books are banned by the zionist demons. When real demons
castigate, defame and abuse your good name, God loves you above all
others and knows you are of the Highest Good. The dark side is so
desperate now, they cannot stand any light, whatsoever, it blinds and
infuriates them further. But, that's good, it means they are losing
their grips and are desperate enough to completely destroy themselves.
I would advise you and your beloveds to leave Israel, but I know you
love the land and will not leave. She is ready to collapse and
possibly burn. We are all in the stew now, so there is really no
place to go, to avoid the inevitible collapse of the planet. The ptb
think they will escape by digging in, underground, moving to China,
leaving on a spaceship to pollute Mars or some other planet, but the
truth is, they have damned themselves and will not escape True Divine
Justice. The Spirit will survive, as it always has, for those of a
good consciousness. No material body lives much longer then seventy
and much less, now and in most countries, so what the hell, forget
fear of the loss of body, save the true divine spark of Light and
Spirit, by proclaiming the truth and exposing the evil essence.
Everything to gain and nothing to lose.
All the Best,
PS. I'm going to find a way to buy that book. I can't wait to read
This is really amazing. You are called racist because you say Jews
have too much power but
saying that Muslims worship Satan is not that much of an offence.

From John Williams :
My dear Shamir,
I cannot tell you how appalled I am at the suppression of your book
in France, of all places. It really does seem to display the worst
of Zionist influence. I could see this happening in America, but
I have forwarded your piece to over a hundred intellectuals. I hope
that some at least will buy it, and give it a life on a book-shelf!
Your steadfast friend,
From Lille Singh, New York
Bravo Adam Bhai! the sign of integrity is to have a book banned,
when people are scared of ideas, of thoughts confronting them on
paper, then they are utterly negligible as a social whole. It is
like the censorship of the Papacy which culminated in inquisitions
and greater intellectual resistance. Furthermore, it becomes more
noticeable so defeats the original purpose entirely, here's to new
readers and open societies everywhere, no their brains have
atrophied alongwith their morals......to the invincibility of the
From Aidin Afshar in Vienna
(a very young and very bright Austrian - Iranian)
I was really woeful to read that your book was banned, but it was no
surprise in this double standard world. Orianna Fallaci is allowed to
write that women with taste feel disgusted by Arabs and that they
should be banned from university, but instead of "burning" her book
we could see the commercials for her upcoming release and later found
it every bookshop among the recommended "new releases". While you
urge us to understand the lost souls of the settler trying to find
love with phylacteries, tefilin and machineguns, you are made to
appear a murderous antisemitic Monster. So how can for example an
Austrian bishop Kurt Krenn state that "muslim immigrants" are taking
over Austria by their `animal-like birth rate', without hardly any
criticism from parties and media, or Simon Jones's report of this
cheerful Star Trek episode where finally Zindis (Arabs) get
eradicated for a better universe. Coincidence??? Well, the German
poet and a wise man Goethe once noted: " Coincidence does not exist,
because everything has it's reason." So could the Zionist influence
in governments, media...etc. be the reason?
"The Antisemite has often thought of this as a defensive and
aggressive union, and has formulated the conception of a
Jewish "solidarity." There is deep confusion here. When some
accusation is made against some unknown member of the Jewish
community, all Jews secretly take the part of the accused, and wish,
hope for, and seek to establish his innocence. But it must not be
thought that they are interesting themselves more in the fate of the
individual Jew than they would do in the case of an individual
Christian. It is the menace to Judaism in general, the fear that the
shameful shadow may do harm to Judaism as a whole, which is the
origin of the apparent feeling of sympathy."
(Otto Weininger in Sex and Character)
Well if we comprehend what Weininger wrote, then we can fully
understand why, the NY Times, Washington Post, etc... do publish
articles to barbarise Palestinians and other Middle Eastern cultures
and discharge Israel from any guilt. "The other side of Israel" would
have been a book, which would have shown the nastiest side of the
Jewish State, with absolutely no clemency. Well a revealed Jewish
State does indeed throws a "shameful shadow" on Jewry, therefore your
book had to be banned. Freedom of speech never really existed, but
the burdensome part is that, if not in one of the most liberal
countries, home of enlightenment, home of brotherhood and equality,
Dr. Mahathir concluded right. that we live indeed in times of
ideologies. Capitalism, Zionism, Neo-liberalism, Communism, ..etc.
were first brought on paper and then realised. But the Muslim world
can not overcome Zionism by imitating Jewish pattern, for Muslims can
not become more successful capitalists than Jews, simply because
confraternity is an instinct trained upon Jews for twice as long as
Muslims exist. So the strength of Judaism is also, it's biggest
weakness, because as Weininger noticed, Individuality is almost anit-
jewish, because it conflicts with idea of a jewish community. As
Gilad Atzmon noted that all brilliant jews were assimilated in
christian culture, so that means that they discovered their
individual self in these cultures, just as you (discovering the
individual Palestinians and his or her struggle) and Jesus did. Here
lies Christ's path to disclose the individual to the true believers
of progress. So muslim societies must encourage individuality,
because just as presence and past show us (ancient greek, early
caliphate or today's Scandinavia), that only societies, which allow
individual freedom in every sense are the ones with the most genius
outcome, because it's the restive and difficult characters that
produce authentic arts, simply because they are different, they are
closer to uniqueness, closer to being individual. This is a very long
process and unfortunately there is no other way to compete.
But to cease my effort of encouragement I'd like to finally get back
to Dr.Mahathir who accurately cognized:
"First we must sit down and ponder."
Thank you for all your writings and kind words. A better Christian
does not exist.

I take it that Middle East.info took the lead in getting the book
banned, or are they just picking up the cudgel? An 1881 law? Not a

not available in English, I'd get hold of a copy from Maria.
Do you plan to republish elsewhere (or try)? Repressive times, my
friend, the noose is slowly tightening. Those in power know they're
in for rough times, which means we'll be in even deeper shit. People
seem to have forgotten about the Security State and tools the
capitalists have these days. No more civil servants in dusty
cubicles, scratching through piles of paper. It's 'bright young
things' in Armani suits and fucking clipboards. Dedicated managers of
the state. This is the 'Iron Heel' about to descend.

David Irving ran into this, even having his original publisher
firebombed in England.
His later books were printed in the East...Singapore I think.
I would suggest not having them printed where the Jewish Lobby is
active and strong.

they have the target distances zeroed in.

Samizdat! Since the French translation exists, place it into Adobe
Acrobat pdf form and distribute it widely. Put the French edition on
your website to download. Explain it was banned in France by the
Judeo-Franco Geheime Staats Polizei. And ask for a donation equal to
what your author's royalty would have been for a printed copy.
At least it can't be banned (yet) in the Late Great USA. It will
doubtless be banned in Canada, though.
From Joost van Steenis, Amsterdam
That is the present world, when you are writing things that disturb
the lives of the elite too much, they know how to hit back - in the
private life of the opponent.
I prefer to say that your book is withdrawn because of the elite and
not only the Jewish elite. I think the whole Western elite profits
from the support of Israel. The leading people are labelling already
a long time people who are against Israel (against the occupation of
a country by in the first place Western people) as anti-Semitic, or
anti-Jew while it is a political question. That brings me to the
remark that World War II is restricted to the holocaust, to the
persecution of Jews while the racist policy of the nazi's was based
on the idea of a super race - I say comparable with the idea that the
Jews are a Chosen People. The millions of slaughtered slaves, homo's
or gypsy's seem to be forgotten as are the organisational fascist
ideas that were more clear in Italy and Portugal as in Germany but
that are now being introduced in the Western so-called democracies.
And why? Because the elite did not want to acknowledge that what
happened in Germany was a direct consequence of the dominating policy
of the elite.
The present racist treatment of people who have some Arabic
characteristics (or even Arabic names) in the USA is comparable with
the German nazi-ideas as was the internment of all Americans from
Japanese origin after Pearl Harbour or the eugenicist laws in many
Western countries including the USA and social-democrat Sweden.
I hope that you will find a way to publish your book in France.
Friendly greetings, Joost van Steenis

This affair between the LICRA and your editor is a very sad thing. At
the same time, to have retired your book "L'Autre Face d'Israël",

say that the day will come where ordinary people will wake up. The

Mr. Shamir: I don't know if I should congratulate you or offer my
condolences. You are a man of tremendous integrity and strength, and
we are honoured to know you.
The Qur'an says: "None shall enter it (Heaven) except those who were
patient, and none shall enter it except those who are most fortunate
indeed" (41:35). So be steadfast in your honesty and integrity,
and pray to God Almighty to give you continued strength and guide you

is not the caption, "Blow the Shofars - Great Victory for the Jewish
Cause" creating the same confusion and the opportunity for charging
anti-Semitism against which you consistently rail? I submit you
should have worded the email title "Blow the Shofars - Great Victory
for the ZIONIST Cause." It is not necessarily Jews who are
celebrating the burning of your book. Otherwise, my warmest regards.

From Jann, Canada:
I am so sorry to hear that the publisher has dropped your book but it
goes to prove our point. It is so SCARY. I am writing to you from
Ottawa, Canada. One thing that is really bothering me is the case of
Ahenakew, a Cree Indian chief who has been charged with hate crimes
instigation of Canada's Bnai Brith. The man is ruined. I spoke with
daughter recently and she told me he is in very bad shape
find it so ironic that the Zionists would go after aboriginal people
and of course, the Native groups folded to the pressure because they
corrupt and tied by the purse strings to the Cdn government.
All the best to you in your work. You have made a difference in my
world. IF you have time, I have a blog going on the internet at

From Kalle, France
Dear Mr Shamir,
Do you remember what I wrote you a few weeks ago about the terms of
texts, saying that you wouldn't be able to publish that in France...
answered me that I was wrong, telling me that your book "L'autre
d'Israel" was about to be published. I was quite surprised, and
it. Yet I've not finished my reading... but as far as I know the
of the jewish lobby, I'm not surprised that your editor took the
decision of withdrawing it !!!
I tell you this : you were a little bit naive, thinking that the
Big Brother which has been ruling a major part of the french
intellectual life among the medias for almost twenty years could let
give us your point of view.
Hopefully, the Web remains... and they haven't yet invented some kind
"Fabius-Gayssot Law" to rule over it...
Good Luck, and thank you so much for "L'autre visage d'Israel", a
genuine collector item !!!
