Last year Jonathan Greenblatt head of Israel lobby ADL demanded Warsaw to revoke the decision to appoint Antoni Macierewicz as country’s new defense minister. Greenblatt accused Macierewicz of saying that The Protocols of Zion were indeed authored by Jews (probably Meyer Rothschild).
We trust that you would not allow anyone of such convictions to be a member of your government, he wrote in a letter to Polish Prime Minister-elect Beata Szydlo.
Macierewicz told listeners to Radio Maryja in 2002 that he had read the Protocols of the Elders of Zion, which purports to be a Jewish plan to control the global economy and media in order to establish a world government.
The Organized Jewry’s antisemitism allegation against Polish government is debunked by some Polish bloggers.
Professor Antoni Macierewicz (University of Warsaw) is a historian, author, and during the communist-rule ran a non-violent campaign against Polish government and Russia. Macierewicz, as defense minister played a major role in bringing the recent NATO conference to Poland on July 8. He was praised by both Barack Obama and Ashton Carter as NATO’s great ally against Russian threat to Europe.
On July 27, Polish Jew writer Tomasz Piatek at The Daily Jewish Forward accused Antoni Macierewicz of founding and editing newspaper Głos (Voice), which was notorious for publishing anti-Jew articles.
“An examination of the publication during Macierewicz’s most active years as its chief suggests one reason why. In the issues from 1996 alone I found 43 anti-Semitic articles, some signed by Macierewicz himself. After I wrote about this recently for the Polish newspaper Gazeta Wyrborcza, where I am a columnist, even the Anti-Defamation League expressed concern,” Piatek said.
It seems, Polish ministers are less gullible than German Chancellor Angela Markel. Last week, Polish education minister Anna Zalewska denied that Polish Catholics were involved in killing of Jews at Jedwabne (in 1941), and Kielce (in 1946). When the Polish Jewish leaders slammed her for insulting the Holocaust, Polish foreign minister Witold Wszczykowski supported his colleague.
Polish-born professor Jan T. Gross (Princeton University) in an article claimed that Poles killed more Jews than Germans during the WWII. The article was published in pro-Israel German newspaper Die Welt.
