As of today's date (May 4, 2019), Peter McLoughlin & Tommy Robinson's book, "Mohammed's Koran," is available on Amazon ($24.88). A few days ago, not even a used copy of this book was available on Amazon, Barnes & Noble, and Books-A-Million. So the question is: Why is Amazon now making this book available? I had written a number of radio celebrities (Limbaugh, Beck, and O'Reilly) suggesting that they look into this matter. Could their inquiries (if they made any) have resulted in a change of heart? I had also tried to buy this book at McLoughlin's website, but paypal would NOT process my order. I emailed McLoughlin, this is his response: "Sabotage by Paypal. They will provide no clear explanation why they are causing these problems, nor what I can do to end them, nor when they will end." By the way, I did read McLoughlin & Robinson's book (the 101 page Introduction, not the Chronological Koran located on pp. 105-332). They were very clear that the British government was covering up the extent of the problem (what they called "The Grand Lie"). Just to be on the safe side, they ended their introduction with this disclaimer: "One last thing: if you think our book explaining why Muslims kill for Islam is a book promoting murder, then you are so deeply indoctrinated that you cannot tell the difference between the criticism of evil and the endorsement of evil." This is a fascinating book. 563 footnotes (pp. 334-384) and a listing of "Recommended Books" on pp. 385-387, but the most important section of this book is Muhammad Marmaduke Pickthall's translation of the Koran placed in Chronological Order (this is very, very important). Let me quote McLoughlin & Robinson on the importance of this arrangement: "Remember, as you start to read the following Koran [pp. 105-332], the first things you are reading are the very last commands spoken by Mohammed, commands which Muslims believe are the unchanging word of Allah, valid for all eternity and which no later Islamic leader can ever rescind. These are verses commanding war and slaughter for those unbelievers who will not convert to Islam or who will not agree to be subjugated by the rules imposed upon the unbeliever by Muslims. For decades, this view of Islam has been concealed from us by our political leaders, our journalists, our religious leaders." (Page 99.) In my opinion, these are the two books that everyone should read: (1) F. W. Burleigh's "It's All about Muhammad" and (2) Peter McLoughlin & Tommy Robinson's "Mohammed's Koran." The first book tells you who Muhammad was and the second book includes the actual Koran in "reverse" chronological order. The abrogated verses are indicated by placing a line through them. I also highly recommend Jay Smith's videos on YouTube. For example, Jay Smith 1 – Islam in Britain: Setting the Scene https://www.youtube.com/watch?v=QsM9w8IJMrw Jay Smith 2 - Theological Differences Our Hermeneutical Key https://www.youtube.com/watch?v=bviUf9WwXI8 Jay Smith 3 – Islam’s Practices and Beliefs https://www.youtube.com/watch?v=2uHE3FTW2Qc&t=3190s Jay Smith 4 – Critique of the Qur’an an Internal and External Critique https://www.youtube.com/watch?v=e9p9Q4A4LKY [Jay Smith] 5 – Your Personal Witness to Muslims * https://www.youtube.com/watch?v=eXZjFsyQ03U Jay Smith 6 – Authority of the Bible https://www.youtube.com/watch?v=v2Ud8qCscN0&t=33s Jay Smith 7 – Muhammad – A Historical Critique https://www.youtube.com/watch?v=GgDgZHIfKvs Jay Smith 8 – Issa vs. Jesus https://www.youtube.com/watch?v=umXM0nzNmPU Jay Smith 9 – Understanding and Using Apologetics/Polemics https://www.youtube.com/watch?v=STAIMLrI3as&t=166s Jay Smith 10 – Which is the True Religion of Peace: Islam or Christianity https://www.youtube.com/watch?v=-GJVDKkNU0c&t=1262s Jay Smith 11 – Missiological Methodologies https://www.youtube.com/watch?v=K5x7_LDBW_o * This presentation is by Keith Small.

Dr. Brown, You make several valid and strong points. It is funny that companies and the media are so afraid to critique Islam but are more than ready and almost obsessed with criticizing Christianity and Judaism. I know it is because of the enemy's influence in this world. Evil is called good and good evil. Society feels completely okay with blaspheming Jesus and God in movies, comic books, the news, in academia, and in other arenas. But Islam is off limits, why the double standard? In addition to religious bias, why is Amazon okay with selling pornography and other abusive material but are unwilling to sell a book critiquing Islam? See David Kyle Foster's response to Amazon under "Amazon.com Carries Books Promoting Child Molestation" here: http://purepassion.us/media-librery/videos-articles-podcasts

I asked Amazon about this via chat today and this is what they told me: "I’m sorry that the book isn't currently published by the publisher. We apologize for this. Once we get any update on release of kindle edition which will be available for purchase on website." Me: The publisher isn't making it available to Amazon? "We will continue to work with publishers directly and ask that they make their content available for Kindle."

Amazon is telling me the publisher is not making it available digitally. Thoughts?
