The US supermarket chain will remove the notorious book "The Protocols of the Learned Elders of Zion" from its Internet shop "www.Walmart.com", after receiving "significant customer feedback." In a letter to the Anti-Defamation League (ADL), Wal-Mart said that it would no longer carry the book. The ADL had informed the retailer that on the Wal-Mart website, it was suggested that the book was not a forgery. ADL director Abraham Foxman praised the decision, saying that Wal-Mart has shown great corporate responsibility by listening and responding to the concerns of customers.
