WORRIED? "Israel demands Amazon remove all holocaust denying literature"

Yad Vashem has called on Amazon to remove Holocaust denial books from its online store, accusing the Internet retail giant of facilitating the spread of hate speech.

The appeal came in the form of a letter penned by Yad Vashem’s director of the libraries, Dr. Robert Rozett, to the CEO of Amazon, Jeff Bezos.

“It has been clear for many years now that Holocaust denial literature is freely available for purchase over Amazon. Many of the items appear with glowing readers’ reviews and recommendations for further reading in the same vein,” Rozett wrote, attaching to his message several examples of rave reviews of books titled True History of the Holocaust. Did six million really die? and The Hoax of the Twentieth Century: The Case against the Presumed Extermination of European Jewry.

Mentioning that Yad Vashem had – in vain – broached the issue with Amazon soon after the latter’s founding, Rozett told The Jerusalem Post that in light of an unfortunate change in climate with more visible antisemitism, “maybe the time is a little more ripe for them to take up the idea that they need to be more careful in what they sell.”

    And by "holocaust denying" they actually mean any sort of scientific investigation of what actually transpired during WW2, including by Jews themselves who consider the official account highly exaggerated and exploitative.

    How long will it be before all literature is removed from our reach.  Once paper books are gone and forgotten, we will only be able to download and read e-books, until someone decides they're not good for us.

    And even then, since it's all digitized, there's no record of anything, and history is whatever lies at the "editor's" fingertips
