“So, as I discussed earlier, some three years before the complaints against Steyn and Levant, I experienced the success of Islamists in censoring my work simply because they did not like what was written in a novel. Unfortunately, although my book received good reviews, I received no support from Canadian human rights organizations, writers’ rights organizations, or even Jewish organizations. Canada’s monopoly book retailer, with 72% of the Canadian retail market, ended up effectively ‘banning’ the book, and returning every one of the 300 copies on its shelves, even where it was selling well, and stating on its website (falsely) that the book was ‘unavailable.’
“All this, because of a scheme by an 18 year old Palestinian book clerk, and some friends of hers, who shut down a lecture I was giving at one of their bookstores, yelling that I had ‘no right’ to speak if I was ‘pro-Israel’ and when audience members pleaded with them to be quiet, they retorted that I was simply a ‘fucking Jew.’ It took me a year to write the book but the 18 year old Islamist and her friends were able to ‘get rid’ of the book so easily, in about a week’s time…”
