No one knows and Amazon isn’t saying.
In January, the mega-retailer stopped selling doormats that featured versus from the Muslim book, because the terrorist linked Council on American-Islamic Relations (CAIR) found the items offensive.
Now, free speech on Amazon has been slain. By refusing to sell the book, the ultra-leftist company has effectively silenced the writers and no one is doing anything about it. This… from a company in hot water for selling to terrorists.
PJ Media reported, “It’s the British government and the BBC, rather than CAIR, that are likely behind this, but Amazon has just dropped” the book—apparently because the company’s censors dislike renowned activist Robinson.
“In the last two weeks, Robinson spectacularly embarrassed the BBC by exposing the bias and dishonesty of its reporter John Sweeney. The retaliation has been swift and severe: Robinson has been banned from YouTube and Facebook, and now his book has been withdrawn from sale.”
[T]his is the twenty-first century equivalent of the Nazis taking out the books from university libraries and burning them. Can you think of another scholarly book on Islam that has been banned by Amazon? Mein Kampf is for sale on Amazon. As are books like the terrorist manual called The Anarchist Cookbook.
“McLoughlin is correct that Amazon’s behavior has been wildly inconsistent. He adds that Amazon officials are steadfastly mum on why the book was banned:”
[They] refuse to reinstate the book and refuse to explain why it has been banned. So they have banned the No.1 best-selling exegesis of the Koran. I can’t get my head round it. Every few weeks for the past 18 months they had emailed me asking to put it into special sales programmes, as it was selling so well. For 18 months they sought to profit even more from the sales.
“As dark as my vision is,” McLoughlin concludes, “I thought we were 10 to 20 years away from dissenting books from being banned.”
This sort of silencing tactic is exactly like the National Socialist Workers Party burning books in giant bonfires.
“This is an extremely ominous development. Amazon and Barnes and Noble — which is also not carrying this book — have a virtual monopoly on book sales.
“When these two giants refuse to carry a book, that book effectively does not exist. If they are now going to ban books that are critical of Islam and opposed to jihad terror and Sharia oppression of women, gays, and others, then an Islam-critical perspective will be almost impossible to find anywhere.”
Of course, there are many deluded people out there who will think that stamping out ‘islamophobia’ is a good thing, but these people fail to recognize that silencing any speech is another step toward complete servitude to the masters.
“Mohammed’s Koran is critical of Islam’s holy book. It endeavors to illustrate how violent jihadists justify their actions by referring to Islamic texts and teachings — and that’s all. Robinson and McLoughlin call for no violence. Their book is accurate.”
Many people argue that if Americans don’t wake up and fight this sort of control, the last great nation for freedom will disappear.
Because under sharia law, there is no liberty… at all. And regardless of what anyone thinks about Tommy Robinson (although, Muslim is not a race, so the ‘racist’ claims are moot), if he can be silenced, anyone can.
