Banning Mohammed’s Koran was not the end of book burning by Amazon

by Brian of London

The following is written by Peter McLoughlin, co-author with Tommy Robinson of Mohammed’s Koran: Why Muslims Kill for Islam. Despite this book being banned and deleted by Amazon, it remains on sale world wide. You can pick up a copy from Peter’s website here.

The following will appear as Appendix 4 in the third edition of Mohammed’s Koran.

Amazon’s actions in banning Mohammed’s Koran have corroborated the argument made in the book: the elite do not want the public to understand that the Koran commands Muslims to kill non-Muslims; nor that it has been accepted by Islamic scholars for over 1000 years that these commands to kill us cancel out (abrogate) any instructions in the Koran which appear to guide Muslims towards peace or tolerance. The book they banned was the clearest illustration of the effects of abrogation on the meaning of the Koran (and Islam) in over 1000 years. Moreover, as you can see for yourself, the Introduction exposes how the Quisling elite have been systematically lying to the public about Islam. Those Korans which promote violence and which are regarded as the final and holy word of god are still for sale. Amazon banned the book which decodes the Koran so that the electorate may take civilized action to curb the growth of this genocidal ideology.

It’s clear that we non-Muslims are not allowed to criticise the ideology which has inspired over 30,000 terrorist attacks since 9/11. Customers were amazingly enthusiastic about Mohammed’s Koran (as evidenced not only by the sales of a book ignored by the media and for which Google refused to place adverts, but also by the 1000 or so “verified purchaser” reviews left by readers, almost all of which gave the book the maximum five stars). Amazon are following their orders from above, and what the customer wants is irrelevant when the crypto-fascist state wants information suppressed. Imagine how delighted the KGB, the Stasi or the Gestapo would have been to have a monopolist like Amazon doing their bidding, destroying any book that exposed the lies of the state.

In July 2017 when Mohammed’s Koran was first published, it went straight to No.1 on Amazon UK, and remained at the No.1 spot until five days later the entire first print-run of 5000 copies had sold out. Before Amazon would distribute the book through the Kindle programme or through print on demand they made it clear they would vet the content of the book. They did so, and it passed the first hurdle. In those first few weeks Amazon contacted the authors to say that the book had been reported to them as “hate speech” and that Amazon were investigating these claims and if found to be true the book would be banned by Amazon. A week later Amazon informed us that despite the calls to have it banned, they were not going to ban it. Thus the book was twice cleared by Amazon for distribution by them. From then on, every couple of months they would email asking to put the book into a special category of Kindle promotion which would allow Amazon to gouge even more of the profits from the book (Amazon kept most of the profit from the Kindle book). So Amazon sought to profit as much as possible from the sale of the book which they had twice cleared as suitable for distribution.

But 18 months after the book first went to No.1, Amazon emailed us to say that the book had been banned because it was “in violation of our content guidelines” (yes, that’s what the email says). Amazon reviews the content of Kindle books before they are allowed to be sold through Amazon, so this book had been reviewed at the start, and was then reviewed again after complaints in 2017. The book continued to be sold by Amazon for a further 18 months before they banned it. Following the ban, repeated requests asking what they found offensive (and what had changed since they gave the book the all-clear in 2017) were ignored by Amazon. However one resourceful reader of the book phoned Amazon and asked why the book was no longer available. At first Amazon staff lied and said “the authors have deleted the book from our website”. The customer contacted us and we pointed out the absurdity of this: only Amazon has the power to delete entries from their database. Amazon sent the customer a transcription of his interactions with them, showing that Amazon not only record conversations with customers but also automatically transcribe these conversations. It should come as no surprise to anyone that Amazon has recently been exposed having staff eavesdrop on the conversations of customers who use Amazon’s voice toy, Alexa,

Having convinced this reader that Amazon staff were lying about us having deleted the book, the customer contacted Amazon a second time and pointed out the lie. Amazon responded by saying that Mohammed’s Koran had been banned in the wake of Tommy Robinson exposing the BBC’s lies in their attempted character assassination of him in their flagship documentary series Panorama (where undercover cameras were used by those people the BBC was encouraging to lie about Tommy Robinson to record the BBC’s preparedness to construct fake news). Furthermore Amazon said that the order to ban the book had come from above Amazon. As the Amazon customer asked in surprise: “What’s above Amazon”? The UK government? The United Nations? The Organisation of Islamic Cooperation (the single largest voting bloc at the UN, the organisation behind the Islamic world’s rejection of universal human rights)? Significantly, after this second conversation this reader was not sent a transcript of the conversation by Amazon. However, being wise to the fact that Amazon were recording these conversations, the customer also recorded it and sent us the recording.

Following Tommy’s exposure of the extent to which the premier state broadcaster was prepared to fabricate its documentaries in order to destroy a man’s life, Tommy was banned by Facebook, YouTube, Instagram, Snapchat and others. More global corporations prepared to do the bidding of the British state. The deputy leader of the socialist party in Britain wrote a public letter to Google, demanding that they ban Tommy from YouTube. A few weeks later YouTube obliged, hiding Tommy’s videos from other users and preventing people from commenting on those videos, ensuring that the media lies are the only version of what he says and what he does. The collusion between multinational corporations and the fascist state is more obvious now than it was during Hitler’s time in government.

That the British government would want Mohammed’s Koran banned comes as no surprise. Since we had been publicly discussing the book in the months before publication, the Quisling elite had time to get their propaganda in place. No sooner was the book published than state-funded organisations were taking out adverts on Google’s search results, intercepting any search for “Tommy Robinson’s new book” or “Mohammed’s Koran” with an advert for a series of expensive, professionally-made videos warning people not to read this book! Google would not take adverts from us for key phrases relating to the book, but they would take adverts for such phrases from people who wanted to stop the public reading the book. In this way these huge monopolies (who pay virtually no tax in the UK) work hand-in-glove with the state’s efforts to shape what the public knows.

As you might expect with Amazon following orders from on high to ban this book, Amazon is absolutely inconsistent about what they ban. It is highly significant that Amazon still sells Mein Kampf (a book which openly advocates the gassing of Jews, which theory was then put into practice in Auschwitz). Amazon still sells The Anarchist Cookbook (a favourite bomb-making manual of terrorists). A few years ago Amazon famously refused to ban a book promoting paedophilia, with Amazon saying “Amazon believes it is censorship not sell certain books simply because we or others believe their message is objectionable” (see “Amazon Under Pressure for Selling Pedophilia Book”, CNBC, 10th Nov 2010). The only Koran Amazon has banned is also the only Koran which denounces violence. All those Korans which promote the hatred of non-Muslims are still for sale. Amazon is still selling those Korans which tell Muslims they will go to Paradise if they become Jihadi murderers. Throughout most of the time that Amazon was not a modern-day book-burner the Koran which denounced violence was also the No.1 best-selling Koran in the UK. Now you can’t even sell a used copy of Mohammed’s Koran on Amazon, so extensive is their ban. If there were any Korans which should have been banned it was all those Korans purporting to be the final word of god and which unquestionably command that Muslims should kill us non-Muslims.

Under English law a company is deemed to be a monopoly if it controls 40% of a market. The book trade is not even able to estimate the size of Amazon’s control of the book market (Amazon are highly secretive not only about why they ban books, but also about the scale of their monopolistic practices). In a 2010 submission to the British government opposing Amazon’s purchase of a rival company, The Booksellers Association stated that between 2008 and 2010 the share of books sold over the internet rocketed from 17% to 44% of all sales in just two years. There is no reason to believe that a similar trajectory did not continue for the following decade. And the same report states that in 2010 Amazon already had 70% of internet sales (before Amazon bought their fast-growing rival The Book Depository). Still, the British government which purports to favour competition permitted Amazon to buy up their nearest rival (they even own “rivals” such as Abebooks). The same submission by The Booksellers Association estimated that in 2010 internet sales accounted for approximately 50% of all sales of books outside of supermarkets, book clubs and bargain book shops. There is thus every reason to assume that Amazon now totally dominates the market for serious books bought outside university bookshops.

When Amazon banned the only Koran which denounces Islamic terrorism, they also deleted around 1000 five star reviews from very satisfied customers. Luckily many of those reviews were backed up on the website which accompanies the book (see inside front cover of the book for details). But don’t think that Amazon is alone in banning this book. In the UK the largest chains of book-sellers (such as Waterstones and Foyles) have refused to supply the book to customers. In the US we have had a number of reports of customers going to Barnes & Noble and Books-a-Million to order copies, only to be told that the book has been deleted from their databases and therefore cannot be purchased (something that staff said they had never seen happen before). When Professor Guy Millière left the toxic environment of France for the freedoms of the USA, he gave a speech where he noted that it was impossible to go into any bookshop in Paris and find a book that was critical of Islam. It is apparently the same situation in Britain, although now such books are being driven off the internet too.

Immediately prior to the book being banned, Mohammed’s Koran was in the top three best-selling editions of the Koran sold by Amazon. (Knowing that we are living in historic times, following the ban we archived images of these web pages for posterity). Even though these other editions had been on sale for a decade longer than Mohammed’s Koran and could be produced at a fraction of the costs we could obtain, our book still had far more positive reader reviews, displaying a level of customer satisfaction ten times higher than for copies of the traditional Koran. Clearly Amazon does not put the interests of its customers first, but is instead beholden to its unseen masters.

Here’s our promise to the fascists who ban books: when it becomes impossible to print Mohammed’s Koran or impossible for us to get these printed copies into the hands of the public, the book will then be made public domain and when that happens anyone who wants will be able to distribute it for free or print it for themselves and others. When there are no publishers or printers involved and it may even become profitable for people to print it and distribute the book themselves, then you fascists will have removed any impediment for anyone who wants to know the truth about Islam. You are not going to stop the victims of Islam from understanding that we are offered two choices by Islam: submit or die. The British government and most of the publishing industry have chosen submission.

Amazon have now set the precedent. In the West the Koran can be banned and journalists will applaud such a ban.
