Amazon Removes Book–But It Does Make a Statement With Humour.

Amazon Removes the book by Israeli author Assad A. Voll .

This man produced the book ‘The History of the Palestinian People: From Ancient Times to the Modern Era.’ The author said is was riveting reading and could be read in one siting.

Well, the book 120 pages in English and 132 in Hebrew is different. There is no text in all those pages .

Except —one sentence from George Costanza of Seinfeld fame along the lines that if you believe contrary to the facts it is not a lie.

Here’s a part of what Legal Insurrection website said:

‘For a century Palestinians have been denying and denigrating the Jewish people’s attachment to the Land of Israel even as they’ve been doubling-down on their own fictitious claims to ‘Palestine’ in antiquity and to family lineages in the Holy Land that predate that of the ancient Hebrews.

A former adjunct lecturer of Jewish history at Haifa University, now the creative director at a Tel Aviv advertising agency, decided to poke fun at this absurd situation in which Palestinians reject the historical accuracy of a Hebrew/Jewish presence in the land while simultaneously concocting an essentially fraudulent narrative of their own history.

The literary product is History of the Palestinian People: From Ancient Times to the Modern Era.

It’s a controversial book that’s been dismissed by critics as “snark” and a “puerile joke”. But scores of admiring readers and hundreds of rave reviews catapulted the volume onto Amazon’s bestseller list, where it quickly reached #2 in the Israel and Palestine History category.
