Censorship in Europe?




Ordering Spencer’s book in Australia from Amazon.com “The Truth About Mohammed” will most likely result in you receiving your book from Amazon’s distribution centre in Germany, together with a customs notice stating:

‘Goods do not meet the requirements of article 9 & 10 of the contract for the foundation of the European community’

Perhaps we should look into why the book is actually banned in Europe or not allowed to be distributed…

Last time I checked free speech and expression was still permitted. What and how and who made these changes?

  1. Sheik, firstly, great to find you and your site!
    Good wishes for huge success.

    Now, I am unclear – did you get the book or just the censorship message, or both?
    Happy New Year!

  2. I did receive the books.

    But I suspect that (just like spyware and things like that) the books can only be sold and distributed OUTSIDE of the EU. I will be in Europe in January and I will ask customs what this is all about.

  3. Thanks, Sheik. You seem to get around a lot!
    let us know how you go. How disgusting if there is censorship like that. Then again, after the cartoon fiasco I would believe anything.

  4. The sticker means the goods fall outside of certain rules for customs charges. You got the book so how the hell could it be censorship? 10 seconds Googling would have shown you it gets put on loads of books, clothes etc. Honestly, some people seem to spend all their time looking for some imagined thing to get upset about……

  5. From a web blogger

    Article 9 provides a right to freedom of thought, conscience and religion.

    Article 10 provides the right to freedom of expression, subject to certain restrictions that are in accordance with law and necessary in a democratic society.

    However one needs to study the actual wording of the articles before further comment can be made. There may be grounds for concern.
