/ Polish hatred towards Jews...
Apologies, I thought you were referring to a Jewish born Catholic woman who certain Poles like to talk about murdering Catholics.
Oh. Excuse my conduct, then. I'd understood that you were ducking, which ticked me off somewhat. Let us continue as gentlemen, then.
Yawn. My point was that it is not correct to call her a Jew. She had a Jewish father but herself was a Catholic.
And my point was that she was an atheist during the span of her... controversial career. I only mentioned this to point out that it was not correct to make this point, with which I agree, that she was not a Jew, by insisting that she was instead a Catholic.
If you would like to claim that all claims by Jewish Poles are for property which did not belong to them, please do so. It’ll no doubt help your acceptance by the rabidly Teraz Polska crew here for you to be seen telling obviously anti-semitic lies here. Alternatively you could try not posting lies.
I'll not try to turn the game around with the obvious "if you'd like to claim that all claims by Jews for property in Poland are made by the legal heirs" question. Instead:
In my mind, the distinction 'those Jews' implies 'Jews that are not Polish', and by extension have no claim to any aforementioned property. Otherwise, I'd describe them as and promote their indiscriminate treatment as 'those Poles', instead.
No. Cohen is British, Jewish, a polonophobe and a moron. I’m none of those things. And yes I did write to the Times to complain about that article.
Apologies, then. Obviously, you're not who I'd thought you were. Suppose I've been reading a small portion of your posts not representative of the whole, all of those being anti-Pole pretty much pro-everything else.
Perhaps it doesn't help that I think of that guy every time I see 'Kielce'.
I see. So all of the participants in the Kielce pogrom were actually Russians (or at least from the USSR). OK, keep believing in your revisionist version of history. Got any comments about the Krakow pogrom or the 118 Jews murdered in the Lublin district between the summer of 1944 and the fall of 1946? All the staged by the Soviets?
organized persecution of an ethnic group
By said definition, Kielce was a Russian pogrom. Who organized?
Kraków: wasn't familiar with it before, but one death and four injured hardly sounds like a world-beater of anti-Semitism. Same said for Lublin... sorta. Can't seem to find evidence of organized anti-Semitism there? If your argument stops at 'There are and were people in Poland who are/were raging anti-Semitics', let me know so we can just agree, note the regrettability of this fact, and move on. If you're trying to suggest that levels of anti-Semitism in Poland are/were not only not comparatively low keeping in mind context and time but in fact unusually high, on the other hand...
You seem to have a very deep-seated desire to want to believe that all Poles are angels and never did anything wrong (apart from the Jews, and they aren’t real Poles to you anyway).
I never suggested any such thing. I am in fact entirely for the view that Polish Jews should be treated exactly as other Poles... no worse, no better, no such special significance attached to the distinction.
Rough translation: you can’t answer the question so you instead ask another question. Good debating skills there!
Rough translation: you did exactly what I did in the post you quoted. Compliment.
You name them, and I’ll find out about their tax status.
All right, let's start with the government of Israel, since they're the main ones pushing the transfer of heirless property to Jewish organizations.
You are going to fit in here! You manage to interpret armed guards taking people out of the country as a “hard military escort” and the process of stealing a person’s possessions as “financial aid”. And then you manage to describe deportations which took place in 1968 as “Stalin’s”, despite the bloke having died some 15 years previously. A stroke of sheer genius!
I'm sorry, but I have no idea what you're talking about here? I've seen nothing in my (brief) search of the topic following your assertations indicating forced exhile, or 1968 deportations. What I have seen is 'mass emigration' - not to be confused, if that's what you were referring to.
I understand that you know nothing at all about me and have been wrong in every one of your guesses so far.
Apologies, then. I seem to have remembered reading that about you somewhere, but can no see no such thing. A grave mistake on my part, sorry.
You make David Irving look like a serious respectable historian (and no doubt you think that he is one too).
Personally, the only thing I like about that clown is the fact that he served a prison sentence for his writings. Justice served well, in my opinion.
Would you mind if I answered your question with a question (bad form I know but indulge me): is that really the best you’ve got?
I'll humor the question: though I enjoy History, 'the best I've got' will more likely emerge in a topic more closely related to Political Science, a personal favorite, if you're honestly asking about my best.
