(The god of Israel was not mentioned once in the Book of Esther).
Neither is the ban against homosexuality :)
God's true written name in ancient Hebrews is YHWH. Now if you are claiming that YHWH's name is not in the book, means what exactly? There are several books in the bible where YHWH's name does not show up. When Mordicai speak about the God saving his people, what other God will save or has ever saved Israel but YHWH? He is the only God on record to have saved Israel in times past, and come to our defense.
As far as you saying, "that their laws were different to all those of other men", was written by the accuser Haman. That was contained in the letter that he wrote to Xerxertes to convince him to kill the decendants of Israel. The letter can be found in the book of Esther, the portion that was taken from the bible. The letter however is contained in the Apocrypha.
