      Amazon bans Hoffman's new bookþ

      Coeur d'Alene, Idaho, August 5 -- Though the official publication
      date for Michael Hoffman's new book, "Judaism Discovered: A Study of
      the Anti-Biblical Religion of Racism, Self-Worship, Superstition and
      Deceit" is August 10, it has already encountered an almost
      unprecedented ban on it by "earth's largest bookstore," Amazon.com.

      After Amazon pre-ordered eleven copies of the book, the author was
      notified on August 3 by David Zapolsky, Vice President and Associate
      General Counsel at Amazon.com, that Amazon "will not continue
      distributing the book."

      Though it may have been a coincidence, in roughly the same time
      frame, Google Inc. e-mailed Hoffman to inform him that his "On the
      Contrary" blog, hosted by Google since 2006, was set to be
      permanently deleted.

      Google accused Hoffman of running a "spam" blog, in spite of the
      fact that he has written more than 500 original columns for the blog
      over the course of the nearly two years that Google has hosted "On
      the Contrary."

      In 2006 Google Video banned two of Hoffman's videos, "World War II
      Revisionists Charles Provan" and "Deborah Lipstadt, Amalek and David

      "While I did not anticipate the ban by Amazon," Hoffman said, "which
      in the past has had a well-deserved reputation as a bastion of
      freedom of the press, fierce opposition to 'Judaism Discovered' was
      of course expected. Mr. Zapolsky's Aug. 3 communication was so
      partisan it was akin to a hazmana from a Beit din. It seems that
      when Judasm is radically challenged, there are no limits to the
      tribal solidarity that coalesces to fight threats to its immunity, a
      an immunity not enjoyed by Christianity or Islam. "

      Hoffman has exhausted his appeals to the Amazon corporate hierarchy.
      Mr. Zapolsky informed Hoffman that until rabbinic objections are
      lifted, the book cannot be distributed by Amazon.

      Hoffman added, "As I stated in my 'Desideratum' essay, the
      only 'argument' 'Judaism Discovered' can't overcome is the silent
      treatment. If the book is denied distribution, advertising and
      publicity, the enemies of truth his will have carried the day in the
      only way they can, through suppression and censorship." Meanwhile,
      Independent History and Research, the book's publisher, has asked
      for patience from customers who have ordered the book. Their tiny
      shipping room staff of one-full time adult worker and one part time
      teen worker has been overwhelmed by the hundreds of orders for the
      book with which they are deluged, some of them for multiple copies
      and cases quantities, and are working long hours in order to process
      them in the order in which they are received.

      Civil letters of protest may be addressed as follows (persons who
      send abusive or threatening letters will be regarded, and exposed,
      as agents of our adversaries):

      Amazon.com Inc.
      1200 12th Avenue, Suite 1200,
      Seattle, WA 98144-2734

      NOTE: Amazon is heavily patrolled by Zionist activists like Allyson Taylor, who works for the AJC, who routinely makes them cut off their business relationships with authors, often through trickery, as well as policing the book reviews for anti-Israel content. -WVNS
