Phi Beta Iota: Amazon is indeed banning many books (as well as reviews and entire reviewer channels), not only on the Holocaust but on Sandy Hook and other US Government atrocities, but it’s more  complicated than that.  To make the point, note that this book is sold by Amazon.

By Germar Rudolf – Amazon is the world’s biggest book retailer. It rakes in some 50% of all consumer spending on books in the U.S. and dominates several foreign markets as well. Pursuant to the 1998 declaration of Amazon’s founder Jeff Bezos to offer “the good, the bad and the ugly,” customers once could buy every book that was in print and was legal to sell.

That changed on March 6, 2017, when Amazon banned more than 100 books with dissenting viewpoints on the Holocaust, after having been pressured by Jewish lobby groups for years to do so.

While Amazon ignored those lobby groups in years gone by, things were different in early 2017. At that time, a series of anonymous bomb threats had been made against synagogues and Jewish community centers in the U.S. Although there is no link between iconoclastic historical research and anti-Semitic acts, Israel’s Yad Vashem Holocaust Center took these acts as a pretext in order to urge Amazon to take down history books they don’t like.

The mass media were quick to join into this campaign, and Amazon promptly fell for it, wiping its sites clean of hundreds of books containing Holocaust research. A few weeks later, in a surprising turn of events, even the mass media revealed that those ominous bomb threats originated not from deranged neo-Nazis but from an Israeli-American Jew. Yet still, ever since this Yad-Vashem initiative, Amazon has insisted on deleting any history book from its stores that Jewish lobby groups disapprove of.

Here is the whole story.
