Barnes and Noble surrenders to Sharia. No wonder their sales are declining. Freedom of speech and Islam can never live side-by-side. It’s either or. You chose what you prefer.
We got this email from a reader:
Message: SUBJECT: Muslim and corporate attack on the 1st amendment!!!
it’s come to my attention that a number of online book retailers are censoring reviews for the bestselling book ‘The People vs Muhammad’.
I have contacted the author JK Sheindlin and he or she knows that this is an ongoing problem.
Approximately 2 weeks ago, Barnes and Noble deleted my review because some Muslims complained about it. However, one of the Muslim perpetrators was permitted to leave their review which denigrated the west and used the platform to publicly convert people to the faith.
Because I spoke the truth that Muslims sometimes turn into homicidal maniacs because of the Quran, I was censored.
Here is my review which was deleted:
“I highly recommend this book. In each chapter, there are literally hundreds of references
all using the Islamic texts with psychological studies. The Author has done a wonderful job
in exposing every single personality disorder attributed to Muhammad. Consequently, the
book makes it easy to understand with some Muslims suddenly become homicidal maniacs.
There won’t be any Muslim whom will be able to defend their prophet after reading this. It’s obvious why this book is a #1 international bestseller. Five stars!”
After filing a complaint, the Muslim’s review has been canned. However, my review is still censored entirely to please Muslim sensibilities.
This is what Barnes and Noble said to go into damage control:
My review was removed – why?!!!

It seems that like many retailers, Barnes and Noble have finally submitted to Muslim aggression.
I’m absolutely shocked and appalled by these double standards. I have been a lifetime shopper at that store, but not anymore.
I have been told by other people that their reviews have also been censored when reviewing other books about Islam.
It seems that Barnes and Noble and other retailers have forgotten about last year’s horrific terrorist attacks at Paris, Brussels, Orlando, Nice, Berlin, Turkey etc.
To censor people from speaking the truth, is the fall of democracy. To speak the truth about Muhammad and Islam, is not slanderous.
I do hope you run with this story, because I’m sick of Muslims pissing over our 1st amendment.
