ZAGLOBA, I full agree with you, but it's what happened after 1945 to the present day, that's the biggest problem.

Ahh yes, Hitler and Stalin sponsored the Sanacja's anti-Semitism. It's ALWAYS the fault of the Germans or the Russians, or even those murdering Ukes, isn't it? Never of the Poles. This attitude is simply contemptible: please accept responsibility for once. It wasn't just Ukrainians massacring Jews during the Potop, Ukrainians weren't the only ones committing atrocities during the struggles over Galicia and the Kresy, and Russians and Germans weren't the only ones who carried out pogromy or Endloesungen. Polish Messianism is just as bankrupt as its Russian counterpart, or as German volkischness.

Deep-seated anti-Semitism is a part of Polish life.

Ignorance is bliss. Anti semitism will never go away as long as Poles are not willing to admit it exists. Like it or not everyone the world over knows Anti-semitism is deep seated in Poland.

There is anti-semitism in just about every country Jews go to including here in the US. I keep reading how Jews are harrassed in New York City, Brooklyn etc. Does this make the US anti-semitic??

If Anti-semitism is so "deep seated in Poland" why did the great 16th Century Rabbi Mosses Isserles praise Poland as a land that God gave the Jews and that if it wasn't for Poland, Israel (Jewish people)would have had a tough time existing? He said this in so many words.

No one denies that there were bad/criminal anti-semitic Poles since you have good and bad in every country. But what about the Jews? Were they always as Noble and Angelic as most Ethnic Jewish newspapers and the mass media (that reads these Jewish newspapers) like to portray them?

SUPPRESSED INFORMATION BY THE MASS MEDIA:

Stalinís Jews

Also the Polish-hating media's focusing ONLY on the bad element of Poles is just pure Polish-Bashing hate, ESPECIALLY when they REFUSE to explain why JEWS KEPT CHOOOOOOOOOOOOOOOOOSING to LIVE in POLAND for ONE THOUSAND YEARS!!!

Was Poland's "anti-semitism" the reason why Poland was a MAGNET for most Jews for ONE THOUSAND years??????????

Living outside of Israel is viewed as an unnatural state for a Jew. The world outside of Israel is often referred to as "galut," which is usually translated as "diaspora" (dispersion), but a more literal translation would be "exile" or "captivity." When we live outside of Israel, we are living in exile from our land.

A German's point of view on Islam.

A man whose family was German aristocracy prior to World War II owned a number of large industries and estates. When asked how many German people were true Nazis, the answer he gave can guide our attitude toward fanaticism.

'Very few people were true Nazis 'he said,' but many enjoyed the return of German pride, and many more were too busy to care. I was one of those who just thought the Nazis were a bunch of fools. So, the majority just sat back and let it all happen. Then, before we knew it, they owned us, and we had lost control, and the end of the world had come. My family lost everything. I ended up in a concentration camp and the Allies destroyed my factories.'

We are told again and again by 'experts' and 'talking heads' that Islam is the religion of peace, and that the vast majority of Muslims just want to live in peace. Although this unqualified assertion may be true, it is entirely irrelevant. It is meaningless fluff, meant to make us feel better, and meant to somehow diminish the spectra of fanatics rampaging across the globe in the name of Islam. The fact is that the fanatics rule Islam at this moment in history.

It is the fanatics who march. It is the fanatics who wage any one of 50 shooting wars worldwide. It is the fanatics who systematically slaughter Christian or tribal groups throughout Africa and are gradually taking over the entire continent in an Islamic wave. It is the fanatics who bomb, behead, murder, or honor kill. It is the fanatics who take over mosque after mosque. It is the fanatics who zealously spread the stoning and hanging of rape victims and homosexuals. The hard quantifiable fact is that the 'peaceful majority', the 'silent majority', is cowed and extraneous.

Communist Russia was comprised of Russians who just wanted to live in peace, yet the Russian Communists were responsible for the murder of about 20 million people. The peaceful majority were irrelevant.

China's huge population was peaceful as well, but Chinese Communists managed to kill a staggering 70 million people.

The average Japanese individual prior to World War II was not a warmongering sadist. Yet, Japan murdered and slaughtered its way across South East Asia in an orgy of killing that included the systematic murder of 12 million Chinese civilians; most killed by sword, shovel, and bayonet.

And, who can forget Rwanda, which collapsed into butchery. Could it not be said that the majority of Rwandans were 'peace loving'?

History lessons are often incredibly simple and blunt, yet for all our powers of reason we often miss the most basic and uncomplicated of points:

Peace-loving Muslims have been made irrelevant by their silence. Peace-loving Muslims will become our enemy if they don't speak up, because like my friend from Germany, they will awaken one day and find that the fanatics own them, and the end of their world will have begun. Peace-loving Germans, Japanese, Chinese, Russians, Rwandans, Serbs, Afghanis, Iraqis, Palestinians, Somalis, Nigerians, Algerians, and many others have died because the peaceful majority did not speak up until it was too late.

As for us who watch it all unfold, we must pay attention to the only group that counts; the fanatics who threaten our way of life.

Lastly, at the risk of offending, anyone who doubts that the issue is serious and just deletes this email without sending it on, is contributing to the passiveness that allows the problems to expand. So, extend yourself a bit and send this on and on and on! Let us hope that thousands world wide, read this -think about it - and send it on.

During World War I, the Zionist cause gained some degree of support from Great Britain. In a 1917 letter from British foreign secretary Lord Balfour to Jewish financier Lord Rothschild, the British government expressed a commitment to creating a Jewish homeland in Palestine. This letter is commonly known as the Balfour Declaration. Unfortunately, the British were speaking out of both sides of their mouth, simultaneously promising Arabs their freedom if they helped to defeat the Ottoman Empire, which at that time controlled most of the Middle East (including the modern states of Syria, Lebanon, Jordan, and Iraq, as well as significant portions of Saudi Arabia and northern Africa). The British promised the Arabs that they would limit Jewish settlement in Palestine mere months after the Balfour Declaration expressed support for "the establishment in Palestine of a national home for the Jewish people."
