Please remember that this "anti-semitic" poland was the only place in europe where they could seek refuge from the persecution througout europe. It is a very complex subject matter often used by Poland's adversaries to discredit her.

Is it why Jewish revolutionairs demanded to abolish the Pale of Settlement so they could escape from Warsaw province to the east?

I wonder how Merkel's visit to Dahau camp went? does anyone know?

Did they have the beer and sausages party gathering after, I thought that was amusing.

At least she was the first German leader to visit a Jewish concentration camp in Germany. Wonder if that means the Jews murdered Germans, which appears to be the standard American Jewish lexicon when it comes to describing camps.

What is your problem? What is wrong with Israel? No gentiles to swindle out of money?
Quote:Before we begin the fascinating story of the Jews of Poland, we have to keep in mind the historical pattern that we see constantly in Jewish history. The places where the Jews will do the best are almost always the places where the Jews will suffer the worst in the end. You'd expect there'd be places that would be good for the Jews and other places where Jews would have a rough time. But that's not what happens.

The best of times and the worst of times tend to happen in the same place. We just saw it in Spain, we're going to see it now in Poland, we'll see it later in Germany. It's one of the great patterns in Jewish history ever since the Jews were invited into Egypt and then enslaved there.

Does this HISTORY lesson teach you anything?
Or are you going to INSIST on living in our gentile lands?

The TRUTH is, us gentiles don't like you, we will NEVER like you, so please go to Israel where you are wanted.
What we say to your face is not what we say behind close doors, TRUST me on this.

WE DON'T LIKE YOU.

San Diego's (Jewish) Mayor Bob Filner to Resign; 18 Women Complain about Sexual Harassment
Mayor Bob Filner expected to resign in sex harassment lawsuit deal
By Tony Perry
August 22, 2013, 7:20 a.m.
SAN DIEGO -- Although details of a mediation deal in Mayor Bob Filner's sexual harassment lawsuit have not been announced yet, it is increasingly clear that the settlement includes his resignation from office.
Filner was seen Wednesday night loading boxes into an SUV parked outside City Hall -- and driven by a San Diego police officer, part of the mayor's security detail -- apparently after saying farewell to his staff and cleaning out his office.
A special election would be held to fill the mayor's post. Filner would be the fourth of the last seven San Diego mayors to leave midterm, all for different reasons.

Pete Wilson resigned in 1983 after being elected to the U.S. Senate. Roger Hedgecock was ousted in 1995 by his felony conviction for conspiracy and perjury. Dick Murphy resigned in 2005 because he thought it best for the city to have a fresh start in dealing with its pension deficit mess.
At issue in the mediation talks was the possibility of Filner's agreeing to resign in exchange for the City Council agreeing to pay some of his legal fees and potential damages in the sexual harassment lawsuit filed against him by Irene McCormack Jackson, his former director of communications.
The end of the mediation came late Wednesday afternoon after three days of closed-door negotiations between Filner, his three attorneys, City Atty. Jan Goldsmith and two City Council members.

From urban dictionary ...

A Gentile girl or woman, especially one who has attracted a Jewish man. The term derives from the Hebrew word "sheketz", meaning the flesh of an animal deemed taboo by the Torah. Since a Jewish man marrying a non-Jewish woman is taboo also, this word applies to her.

Traditionally this is a derogatory term, though in modern times it has also been used more light-heartedly. For example, Seinfeld once did an episode about Elaine's "shiksa appeal".

The ideal shiksa is a blonde WASP who look like the opposite of a stereotypical Jew, but in reality, many shiksas are brunettes who might pass for Jewish themselves.

======

It's a term that was also in common usage in Poland before the war.

No, asss hole .. it is not meant to be an insult..!!

It is meant to be a rather playful and friendly term a Jewish guy calls his lovely and attractive non Jewish date..

Why do you have to take everything and anything in a conflictive spoiling spirit..??

Many moons ago, on my Kibbutz days .... I did fall for this Dutch young beauty volunteer.. today a retired Grandma..(we are friends in face'g'ook)

I was her 'joo' and she was my 'shiksa'... until she went back home ..

So Jews stole the word Shiksa from Poland like they stole the Bagel from Poland!?
I have also seen Shiksa listed as a Polish word before.
No not really. My godfather who was born in Drohobyc in 1907 use to use the word about women, and quite possibly when talking about Jews. I think that it was widely used...but its definitely a Jewish word.

It definitely would have be a derogatory word used by Jews in much the same way as goy, but even then I would imagine that derogatory words were also used a terms of endearment but only depending on how you used it, and who you were talking to.

It's like anything, you can see things in a bad way or a good way or even be comepletely neutral. All depends ...

Sanhedrin 57a . When a Jew murders a gentile ("Cuthean"), there will be no death penalty. What a Jew steals from a gentile he may keep.

Baba Kamma 37b. The gentiles are outside the protection of the law and God has "exposed their money to Israel."

Jews May Lie to Non-Jews

Baba Kamma 113a. Jews may use lies ("subterfuges") to circumvent a Gentile.

Non-Jewish Children are Sub-Human

Yebamoth 98a. All gentile children are animals.

Proud Gentile....a real story..

For some time, I haven't been back again to Montenegro. I got to Montenegro while on vacations, at the beautiful City of Dubrovnik (Croatia)... which I sincerely recommend to all the readers.

... the last time I was in Montenegro, it caught my attention a gesture of good will from the People of Germany..

They sent you as a gift a myriad of steel garbage containers on wheels, painted on a silver gray ... and displaying a sign that spells that this is a gift of the People of Germany.

I thought it was nice..

What I couldn't understand was ... you don't throw the trash inside the container .. the garbage accumulates all over on the streets..

As a gesture of good will, I took a black felt marker left by the previous people that rented Renault in the City of Trieste (Italy)... and wrote on two of the garbage containers .... "GARBAGE HERE" .. and added a big arrow pointing to the opening at the top of the container.

Proud Gentile, have your people figured out already that the containers are for the garbage and that the big opening is on the top..??

He's very Proud to lie about the Talmud ... but not proud enough to dispose off the garbage on the free of charge containers offered as a gift by the People of Germany..

I don't have the slightest idea what this post is about?
Is it symbolic?
