The Israeli government and the American Jewish Committee have formally demanded that the Polish government to “take action” against the organizers of last weekend’s annual Polish Independence Day rally in Warsaw after it appeared that some of the estimated 60,000 participants called for Jews to be expelled from Poland—even though Israel refuses to let non-Jews immigrate to that Jewish ethnostate.
According to a hysterical report from the Jewish Telegraphic Agency, the marchers shouted “Jews out,” “Remove Jewry from power,” and held signs reading “White Europe, Europe must be white.”
The March of Independence is an annual event in Warsaw, organized by nationalist groups and marked 99 years of Polish independence. A small minority of the marchers came from outside of Poland.
Poland’s interior minister expressed pride in the event. “It was a beautiful sight,” Mariusz Blaszczak said. “We are proud that so many Poles have decided to take part in a celebration connected to the Independence Day holiday.”
In response to the march, the American Jewish Committee in a statement called on the Polish government to take action against “rising hatred inspired by the country’s far right.”
Agnieszka Markiewicz, the director of AJC’s Warsaw-based Central Europe office, said that while the holiday was celebrated appropriately by some, it was “seriously marred by hateful, far-right throngs.” She said that “xenophobic nationalism in Poland is becoming more dangerous” and warned against complacency.
Israeli Foreign Ministry spokesman Emmanuel Nahshon called the event “a dangerous march of extreme and racist elements.”
“We hope that Polish authorities will act against the organizers. History teaches us that expressions of racist hate must be dealt with swiftly and decisively,” he told the Associated Press in a statement.
The Jewish attacks on Polish nationalists are extremely hypocritical, given that the Israeli government has made it illegal for non-Jews to immigrate to Israel—effectively giving force to a “non-Jews out of Israel” policy, that in Israel, it is illegal for Jews to marry non-Jews, among many other laws designed to ensure that Israel remains a Jewish country.
This hypocrisy—of demanding “action” against white people who are only expressing an opinion endorsed by the international Jewish lobby and implemented into law by Israel—cannot be an “accident” or just a “mistake.”
It is yet another example of one rule for Jews, and another rule for non-Jews.
