Amazon has removed two books written by a Holocaust denier, including one that blames antisemitism on the Jews and another that appears to advocate genocide.
Amazon has stopped selling The Jewish Hand in the World Wars and the recently-released Eternal Strangers: Critical Views of Jews and Judaism Through the Ages, both written by an author who goes by the name of Thomas Dalton PhD.
The latter book’s blurb explains that “Jews are seen as pernicious, conniving, shifty liars; they harbor a deep-seated hatred of humanity; they are at once foolish and arrogant; they are socially disruptive and rebellious; they are ruthless exploiters and parasites; they are master criminals – the list goes on. The persistence of such comments is remarkable and strongly suggests that the cause for such animosity resides in the Jews themselves – in their attitudes, their values, their ethnic traits and their beliefs.”
The Jewish Hand in the World Wars expresses similar sentiments, apparently concluding by advocating for genocide against the Jews: “What shall we do? The path forward is quite narrow as Hitler understood. If we are to have any hope of minimizing future wars, we must stay the Jewish hand. Jews must be identified, isolated, sanctioned and removed from positions of power. In two short decades, an uneducated Austrian artist developed an unprecedented vision of national greatness, defeated the potent Jewish Lobby that for so long had ruled his nation, and guided his people to the heights of power. It happened once before. The blueprint still exists. It could happen again.”
The researcher David Collier described the book as a “169-page sewer of raw antisemitic hatred”.
An earlier book by the same author that was not available on Amazon – Debating the Holocaust – says in the introduction: “After considering all the evidence, I find that the revisionists have a very strong case.”
The books are all published by Castle Hill Publishing, which says it was founded by established by Germar Rudolf, a convicted Holocaust denier who served time in prison in Germany.
