Amazon stops selling Hitler-defending author's book that says Jews play 'exceptionally active role in war'

The retailer has removed titles including ‘The Jewish Hand in the World Wars’


Amazon has removed two books from sale by an author whose works accuse Jews of having "played an exceptionally active role in promoting and inciting war".

The latest book by "Thomas Dalton PhD" — Eternal Strangers: Critical Views of Jews and Judaism Through the Ages  was released last week and follows The Jewish Hand in the World Wars.

Both were available to buy through the online retailer, listed as “dispatched from and sold by Amazon”, until antisemitism campaigners raised the alarm.

The latest book's synopsis reads: “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 synopsis for The Jewish Hand in the World Wars says: “Throughout history, Jews have played an exceptionally active role in promoting and inciting war.

"With their long-notorious influence in government, we find recurrent instances of Jews promoting hardline stances, being uncompromising, and actively inciting people to hatred.”

According to antisemitism researcher David Collier, the book concludes: “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.”

Mr Collier called the book a "169-page sewer of raw antisemitic hatred".

Writing before Amazon pulled the books, he said: "You would think that a book full of such blatant antisemitism – from turning historical events into Jewish-led false flags through to a denial of the Holocaust – would only be available for purchase on twisted neo-Nazi websites.

"Just like Twitter and Facebook, Amazon is helping to spread raw Jewish hatred."

The synopsis for Hitler and the Jews claims that “of the thousands of books and articles written on Hitler, World War Two and the Holocaust, virtually none of them quote Hitler’s exact words on the Jews—virtually none.

“The reason for this is clear: Those in positions of influence in media, government and universities have an incentive to present a simplistic and highly-sanitized picture of Hitler as an insane Jew-hater, a blood-thirsty tyrant and the embodiment of evil.”

Other books and articles by Thomas Dalton - not available on Amazon - also question the Holocaust.

In 2009, he wrote Debating the Holocaust. In its introduction, he says: “After considering all the evidence, I find that the revisionists have a very strong case.

"Their argumentation is solid, their sources are well-substantiated, and their research is of a high caliber… overall, the bulk of their arguments point to one general conclusion:  that the traditional Holocaust story is significantly flawed.”

Amazon has since removed The Jewish Hand in the World Wars and Eternal Strangers from its listings, and is currently reviewing Hitler on the Jews.

A spokesperson told the JC: "Our store maintains content guidelines for books that address content that is illegal, infringing or that we otherwise prohibit."

Amazon guidelines for books state: "We reserve the right not to sell certain content, such as pornography or other inappropriate content."

All the books are published by Castle Hill Publishing, which according to its website, was established by Germar Rudolf, who served a jail sentence in Germany for Holocaust denial. 

The identity of Thomas Dalton remains unclear and could be pseudonym.
