- COEUR D'ALENE, Idaho -- 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,"
- 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
- 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
- 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 Irving."
- "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.
