Who ordered this to be done, and why, and under what pressure? In any case, it is consistent with Amazon’s previous demonstrations of Sharia adherence: see here and here. Apparently only editions of the Qur’an that are uncritical and apologetic in intent can be sold as Qur’ans.

Amazon does many things to keep sales of dissident books low. It never listed my book The History of Jihad in the History of Islam section, where would naturally have belonged; you’ll find it in “African Politics” and “Radical Political Thought.” This is neither accidental nor careless. It’s designed to ensure as much as possible that someone browsing for a book on a particular subject will not stumble upon one that dissents from the establishment line.

Get the book here as soon as you can; it may not be available at all for long.
