Subject: Amazon’s Political Involvement.
Notice to Amazon:
Just this moment I removed my Amazon credit card from my wallet, as much as I truly love using it. But, until you correct all the policies and accusations of the correspondence below, I will no longer do business with you of any kind. Not that this will bother you one bit but, it will make me feel a whole lot better.

PS I also am placing this correspondence on my website, www.israel-commentary.org, which will contact about 30,000 readers between the webpage, Facebook and Twitter.
The reason for this action reads below:
A Sacramento rabbi has formally requested that Amazon stop selling books or propaganda that support the conspiracy theory that the Holocaust didn’t happen.
According to a report last year, a surprising amount of people either deny the Holocaust or weren’t even aware of what it was. The Anti-Defamation League discovered that half the people in the world have never heard of the Holocaust, and a third of the other half were under the impression that it didn’t even happen, according to US News.
Amazon’s Children’s “Game”?

Online retail giant comes under fire over sale of jigsaw puzzle depicting ovens at Dachau crematorium. ‘This is a real slap in the face for concentration camp survivors and relatives of victims,” says German politician.
There is even a subreddit called, “Holocaust Deniers” …
(Reddit is a social news and entertainment website where registered users submit content in the form of either a link or a text (“self”) post. Other users then vote the submission “up” or “down”, which is used to rank the post and determine its position on the site’s pages and front page. Content entries are organized by areas of interest called “subreddits”)
… that gathers conspiracy theorists together to deny the Holocaust. Books such as “Did Six Million Really Die? The Truth at Last” by Richard Harwood and “Breaking the Spell: The Holocaust Myth and Reality” by Nicholas Kollerstrom remain ready for purchase on the site.
The American electronic commerce website has already come under fire from the Jewish community for continuing to sell Nazi paraphernalia such as flags and phone cases with swastikas on them. Hamas pendants and flags are also available on the website.
By contrast however, Amazon, has joined other major corporations, such as Walmart and Sears, to ban selling any items with the Confederate flag on them. (Somehow, Jews, as usual, don’t count. They have never been confident or destructive enough to burn buildings, perpetrate flagrant, blatant acts of theft, attack and beat innocent civilians, kill police officers and organize other outrageous illegal protests — all, in this sad era, under the benign gaze and active participation of Obama’s previous Attorney General, Eric Holder and Obama’s own right hand point man, Al Sharpton.)
Unfortunately, to just stop using a credit card will not do a damn thing unless hundreds or thousands of others also send that message and make Amazon understand that:
“To deny the Holocaust is another mask of blatant anti-Semitism,” says Rabbi Mendy Cohen, whose great grandfather was burned alive in a synagogue with 500 other Jews.
