Amazon has again exposed its anti-Israel bias: Anti-Israel sales are approved, while a pro-Israel book is removed from the site.
Amazon has removed a book proving that the myth of Palestinian peoplehood, history and culture was false, while continuing to sell pro-Palestinian shirts calling for Israel’s destruction.
The recently published book, titled A History of the Palestinian People: From Ancient Times to the Modern Era, is described as “the fruit of many years of research, during which thousands of sources have been meticulously reviewed in libraries and archives worldwide,” resulting in a 132-page history that draws one conclusion: There is no Palestinian people, history or culture.
“It is no doubt the most comprehensive and extensive review of some 3,000 years of Palestinian history, with emphasis on the Palestinian people’s unique contribution to the world and to humanity,” reads the description of the book, which consists of dozens of blank pages.
The book sold hundreds of copies in only a few days, and it reached a remarkable ranking of 341 in the All Books category, a ranking of 49 in History, and was #1 in Middle East History.
Amazon has removed the title, apparently the result of an anti-Israel campaign.
The author, Assaf Voll, received a message from Amazon stating that “during a quality assurance review of your CSP catalog, we found that your book(s) are resulting in a disappointing customer experience. Indicators of a poor customer experience may include customer refunds and feedback. As a result, the following book(s) have been removed from sale on Amazon.”
Voll wrote on his Facebook page that he has no doubt that the removal of his book is the result of a consorted campaign, and that he has received hundreds of threats through social media.
The book is still available for sale on other platforms.
Calls for Israel’s Destruction are OK
Amazon’s online store is still selling sweatshirts and t-shirts emblazoned with the slogan “Free Palestine, End Israeli occupation.” The clothes feature a fist in Palestinian flag colors.
Some shirts also sport the entire map of Israel under the “Free Palestine” slogan. Those who wear it are essentially calling for Israel’s destruction.
One site user responded to the belligerent attire by writing, “Amazon is supporting genocide of Jews.”
“Free Palestine? From Whom? From Jews? Because that’s the idea of the Arab world – to eliminate Jews and kill them. That’s their view of ‘Free Palestine.’ Shame on you, Amazon, to support genocide of the whole nation,” the user wrote.
