Shrier sets the record straight about Haaretz's lies

Abigail Shrier addressed what one of the worst leftist newspapers in Israel, Haaretz, is saying about her, and also Steimatzky and Tzomet Sefarim's refusal to carry her book, or not within the Tel Aviv perimeter:
Conservative author Abigail Shrier exposed what she called "leftist media lies" in a Twitter thread about the narrative surrounding the release of her book, "Irreversible Damage: The Transgender Craze Seducing Our Daughters," in Israel this week.

Shrier linked to an article in the Israeli newspaper Haaretz that downplayed the support she experienced in the country as the top two book chains refusing to sell her book, "Irreversible Damage," in its stores after succumbing to activist pressure.

The author took to Twitter to correct the record and even after trans activists successfully pushed the country's largest book stores from carrying the book, hundreds of Israeli's registered and paid to attend her talk in Tel Aviv.
Read more at the article. It should be noted that a number of years ago, Steimatsky also refused to sell books about Charlie Hebdo's satirical illustrations that put them in the crosshairs of Islamofascism. So, this is no shock they'd throw her under the bus, but it's still monumentally offensive they continue to demonstrate they're an utter farce when it comes to extremists. I think the bookstore chain will have to be boycotted, since this is a very serious matter.

Update: here's more about the issue.
