How Amazon Became a Branch of Israel’s Ministry of Propaganda
We might have seen this coming as long ago as 2010, when Amazon Network Services dropped its new client, Wikileaks, just as soon as the redoubtable Senator Joseph Lieberman cast a disapproving glance at it. In fact, now I think about it, I did sense this coming. And here it is, full-blown less than seven years later.
Jeff Bezos, CEO of Amazon
After serenely carrying it for over 20 years, Amazon decided last month that Arthur Butz’s The Hoax of the Twentieth Century: The Case against the Presumed Extermination of European Jewry is “in violation of our content guidelines,” and they “disappeared” it – all editions, all languages. There’s no hint on Amazon’s Web site that the book was ever present on it. They similarly treated over 70 other titles – and more than 70 older editions of the same titles – published by the Committee for Open Debate on the Holocaust. They finished up this broadside by threatening to bar CODOH entirely as a supplier of material for sale through Amazon or its numerous subsidiaries, should they dare post similar material in the future. The banned books covered most of the work of at least 20 authors:
John C. Ball, Arthur Butz, Thomas Dalton, Robert Faurisson, Jürgen Graf, Don Heddesheimer, David Hoggan, M.S. King, Nicholas Kollerstrom, Barbara Kulaszka, Thomas Kues, Robert Lenski, Fred Leuchter, Carlo Mattogno, Warren Routledge, Germar Rudolf, Walter Sanning, Wilhelm Stäglich, Victor Thorn, Ingrid Weckert, Peter Winter.
Adolf Hitler’s seminal Mein Kampf survived this purge, as did Henry Ford’s scurrilous Protocols of the Learned Elders of Zion, leaving it quite clear that the theme of this action was not Nazism, not anti-Semitism, but the Holocaust, or rather, a particular angle of approach to the subject (many hundreds of titles taking the opposite approach, objectionable though it is, are doing just fine, thank you). Other alternative views of history, not to mention geocentrism, creationism, and the assertion that the earth is flat rather than round, likewise escaped this mopping-up. The strike, broad though it was, could rightly be called “surgical.”
What happened? Did it take Amazon twenty years to discover the seditious message in Butz’s magnum opus? They certainly discovered the other 146 (and counting) books after far-shorter times, and it isn’t like Butz’s book (could have) cited them. Butz never significantly revised the book, in such process slipping in objectionable material that wasn’t there before. One thing that did happen is that ownership of the publishing license did change hands … to Castle Hill Publishers, CODOH’s publishing arm, whose works are today nowhere in evidence in the vast reaches of the Amazon.
There was a time long ago when Jeff Bezos, founder and CEO of Amazon.com, still had (some) hair, and earnestly intoned, “... we want to make every book available—the good, the bad and the ugly ... to let truth loose." What a difference nineteen years make! He spoke these noble thoughts in a 1998 speech at Lake Forest College on February 26, when his company, The Largest Bookstore on Planet Earth, was but three years old. Since then, his enterprise has expanded many, manifold, even as his hair disappeared entirely from his head. Capitalized as the fifth-most-valuable publically traded company in the world, Amazon.com today is vastly stronger than it was in 1998 … financially. What we noted (above) in 2010, however, portended just how weak, or vulnerable, that same enterprise had become as it became entangled with more and larger customers all over the world, including the Largest Customer on Planet Earth, the United States government, or more-specifically, its vaunted Intelligence Community.
But before I trace out how Amazon.com became the Largest Zionist Mouthpiece on Planet Earth, first let me dispose of a typical diversionary action launched by the huge contingent of Israel’s sayanim currently operating within the United States. Under the ironic pretext of the election of the “anti-Semitic” Donald Trump, an extensive wave of vandalism was launched against tombstones in Jewish cemeteries (tipping them over) and calling in bomb threats to synagogues and Jewish community centers all over the United States. This all serves as a pretext for covert actions such as delisting the entire revisionist canon from Amazon, and the launch of this huge false-flag operation is in turn covered by the election of a president whose chief of staff is none other than Orthodox Jew Jared Kushner, bringing an enormous cadre of Jewish and Israel-sympathetic operatives into the administration in his train.
And yes, they’ve gained, as is their way, critical positions in the intelligence community, too. The intelligence community that is Amazon.com’s largest customer by far. Could Jeff Bezos, over twenty years after he let Arthur Butz’s landmark work onto his vaunted Web site, finally have been gotten to by the $600-million-dollar elephant in his room? This is the work of the Deep State. Or of a Deep State; you decide.
All the same, he may be seen, he may even claim, to have done a mitzvah. If his mortal blow to freedom of expression in America is in fact a mitzvah, it is that only to a people living thousands of miles outside this country. And their fifth column here in this country, too, perhaps.
For now, anyway.
