When you call make it clear that this is not about book banning, but rather the promotion by a of a dangerous religious guru with a history of child molestation. This is not in line with the Wal-Mart philosophy of being a "family" store with "family" values.Refer them to the Awareness Center webpage:http://www.theawarenesscenter.org/Gafni_Mordechai.htmlAlso note that the books have false biography information:"He teaches graduate seminars on mysticism at Oxford University..."Which is a complete misrepresentation. He never taught graduate seminars at Oxford University. He is nothing but a mere student.

This is not the kind of issue that WalMart cares about one whit. Their shelves are full of items by people who are way more notorious than Gafni, so you'd just be wasting your time. Why would they care about Gafni, who is not well-known and has no legal proof against him, when they're selling items like the DVD of The Pianist, directed by Roman Polanski who allegedly raped a 13-year-old, as well as a CD called The Truest Shit I Ever Said by rapper C-Murder, who is in jail for killing someone (just to name a couple examples out of many)?Also, if they removed every book that had inaccurate details in the author bio, there would be no books left to sell; I'm in the publishing business and I know that for a fact.
If enough people complain, it will make it harder for Gafni to get his books on the shelves in Wal-Mart.Also, people should report Gafni for misconduct to Oxford University for representing himself as a lecturer (Gafni is a student and they can investigate him).Reference the Back Flap on The Mystery of Love available on Amazon.See: http://www.amazon.com/gp/reader/0743442202/ref=sib_rdr_bf/102-1753211-7528154?%5Fencoding=UTF8&p=S0AX#reader-pageContact graduate studies at:http://www.admin.ox.ac.uk/gso/staff.shtmlGraduate Studies OfficeOpen: 9.00 a.m. - 1.00 p.m., 2.00 p.m. - 5.00 p.m. Office AddressUniversity Offices, Wellington Square, Oxford OX1 2JDTel: +44 (0)1865 270045, fax: +44 (0)1865 270049Email: Graduate.Studies@admin.ox.ac.uk
what's that poem about people who sat back and did nothing? I know it has to do with the nazi's. I'm not saying that Gafni is a nazi. What I'm saying is sitting back and doing nothing, is NOT an option.
You are a strange one Mr. Jewish Whistleblower.
This has got to be the dumbest campaign by JWB yet, in a long list of crazy efforts.If Wal-Mart got, maybe, 100,000 complaints about something they MIGHT begin to consider not selling it. I would be shocked if you could find more than 5 people who think this effort is worth pursuing.A little perspective here...this is not someone who is out there molesting children or who is considered to be a clear and present danger by ANYONE beyond the few crazies at the Awareness Center and this blog. Some people are obviously still upset with him for things they believe he did a long time ago; let them work it out with him privately. The obsession to stop his teachings or his books from being read simply makes no sense and makes JWB look even more ridiculous than usual. Hey JWB, get a life already!
I think Jewish Whistleblower is just jealous that he doesn't have any books of his own for sale at Walmart. He's too busy tearing people down to actually create something positive in the world. Sad.
JW, Looks like Gafni and his buddies are reading your blog. It looks like they aren't happy with the fact that you are an advocate for justice. Thank you for being there for survivors. It's about time someone stood up to these goons.
I don't know Gafni and I'm definitely not his buddy. But I do think JWB is crazy, and has a strangely warped sense of "justice."

Gafni and your goons,Basically I wanted to let you know you can't get away with this anymore. Too many people are aware of what you have been doing, and how in the past you were able to get away with it. B'H' for the internet. B'H' for Jewish Whistleblower
I concur with the preceding comment. POWER TO THE PEOPLE!!!
I think I want to add a few more B'H's.B'H' to Luke FordB'H' to Rabbi Yosef BlauB'H' to Vicki Polin B'H' to the volunteers at The Awareness Centerand a HUGE B'H' to the three women who were brave enough to keep fighting, and to make sure the world was made aware of what Gafni did to them!
