Seanus 15 | 19,706 25 Apr 2011 #61I forwarded an interesting video to Torq which I'd gladly share with you, meirys7. An Israeli talks candidly about the perception of Poles towards him. His exp is positive. Now, he is but one individual speaking to a camera but I really don't find much ill feeling towards Jews here.We can all speculate about what deals might have been done in the past but the time for reparations has largely passed us by. I think more focus should be placed on modern realities (that's not to say we should detract from the importance of reclaim) like the ICJ's 2004 verdict on settlements. Netanyahu is really playing a dangerous game.Meirys7, his Holocaust denial material doesn't interest me. I've never denied the Holocaust, just the numbers.Based on what I have read so far, I don't deny the Kielce Pogroms, no. However, I don't pretend to know either way. I really am not one to latch on to a historical position and defend it to the hilt. I guess it comes from my belief in the legal maxim, 'res noviter veniens ad notitiam', matters newly coming to light. One must remember that, whilst we should never condone such atrocities, times were heated and many Poles perished. Rightly or wrongly, it would appear that such people believed Jewish people to have brought Nazism to Poland. Of course it was not the fault of Jewish people in my eyes but people are people.....Oh, I believe that it could have happened, yes. I don't know for sure as I wasn't there. You have to feel the climate and they may have thought that their lives were to be spared. It's easy with hindsight when we see extreme barbarity.
