A Jewish mother from Wisconsin who ordered an Israeli history book from Amazon felt “violated” after the copy had “very disturbing” pro-Palestine stickers attached to it.
Shira Goldman noticed the sticker when she opened Noa Tishby’s novel “Israel: A Simple Guide to the Most Misunderstood Country on Earth.”
Throughout the book, multiple stickers with fake barcodes reading “Free Palastine” (the incorrect spelling of Palestine) were stuck to the pages.
Tishby turned to
An Amazon spokesperson soon said this Times now that the employee who defaced the book was identified and fired for his actions.

Amazon sent Goldman a new copy of the book and said they had identified the employee who damaged the original copy and fired them
Goldman then shared the shocking experience with her friends and family before taking to Facebook, where many Jewish mothers’ groups responded in droves.
Members of the Tribe Parenting and Mothers Against College Antisemitism were among those who responded to Goldman’s terrifying discovery.
Since the war between Israel and Hamas broke out on October 7, members of these groups have come together as a community to find educational books to help understand the horrific war.
Among the recommended books, Tishby’s 2021 novel quickly climbed to the top of their list and the New York Times bestseller list this past month.
“Israel: A Simple Guide to the Most Misunderstood Country on Earth” was released in 2021 and became a New York Times Bestseller last month
Tishby, who is also an actress, producer and former Special Envoy to Combat Anti-Semitism and Delegitimization of Israel, created this book to help others understand Israel’s history.
Television host Bill Maher commented on the book itself, saying, “This is not Bubbie’s history book.”
Goldman said New York Post that she felt like she was “targeted because of her faith” when the tampered copy of the book arrived in the mail that day.
In response to the conflict, Amazon sent her a new copy of the book the same day. They also said it was apparently the last copy available in the warehouse at the time.
Amazon and other companies such as Starbucks, McDonalds and Google have come under fire lately for their public stances on the ongoing war in the Middle East.
Amazon CEO Andy Jassy told X (formally known as Twitter) on October 9 that the attacks on Israel were “shocking and painful to watch.”
‘We are also in close contact with our humanitarian aid partners on the ground and will support their efforts. I hope there will be peace as soon as possible,” Jassy said.

Protests and hate crimes continue across the country as Palestine and Israel continue to fight.
Six people were recently arrested after a gang of masked pro-Palestinian protesters tried to storm Grand Central Station by kicking in the doors on Friday evening.
In other news, Israeli Prime Minister Benjamin Netanyahu stressed that there will be no ceasefire in the war against Hamas until all hostages are returned.
Hospitals in Gaza are also under constant attack by Israel as they lost power from one of their generators, leading to the death of a baby in an incubator.
