- Shira Goldman received a defaced copy of a book about Israel from Amazon
- The book had multiple pro-Palestine stickers plastered across it
- She received a new copy of the book the same day and the employee responsible was fired
A Jewish mother from Wisconsin who ordered an Israeli history book off of Amazon was left feeling ‘violated’ after the copy had ‘very disturbing’ pro-Palestine stickers plastered across it.
Shira Goldman noticed the sticker when she opened up the novel ‘Israel: A Simple Guide to the Most Misunderstood Country on Earth’ by Noa Tishby.
Multiple stickers with fake barcodes read ‘Free Palastine’- the incorrect spelling of Palestine- were stuck to pages all throughout the book.
Tishby took to X (formally known as Twitter) and said that she was in contact with Amazon Books who told her that ‘they’re making sure this doesn’t happen again’.
A spokesman for Amazon soon told Times Now that the employee that defaced the book was identified and fired for their actions.

Goldman then went on to share the shocking experience with her friends and family before she took to Facebook, where many Jewish mom groups flocked to the comments.
Members of the Tribe Parenting and Mothers Against College Antisemitism were among those that reacted to Goldman’s terrifying discovery.
Since the Israel-Hamas war broke out on October 7, members of these groups have come together as a community to find educational books that help make sense of the gruesome war.
Of the recommended books, Tishby’s 2021 novel quickly climbed to the top of their list and the New York Times best-seller list in the past month.

Tishby, who is also an actress, producer and former Special envoy for Combating Antisemitism and Delegitimization of Israel created this book to help others understand the history of Israel.
Television host, Bill Maher commented on the book itself and said, ‘this is not your Bubbie’s history book’.
Goldman told New York Post that she felt that she was ‘targeted for her faith’ when the tampered copy of the book came in the mail that day.
In response to the conflict, Amazon ended up sending her a fresh copy of the book the same day. They also said that it was apparently the last copy available in the warehouse at the time.
Amazon and other companies like Starbucks, McDonalds and Google have been under fire recently for their public stances over the on-going war in the middle east.
Andy Jassy, the CEO of Amazon took to X (formally known as Twitter) on October 9 and said that the attacks on Israel were ‘shocking and painful to watch’.
‘We’re also in close contact with our humanitarian relief partners on the ground and will be supporting their efforts. Hoping that peace arrives as soon as possible,’ Jassy said.

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