Life / Why is cheating at schools in Poland accepted?! [155]

Can you delete that troll -

then cheat on the exam or just buy off

The proof of Polish women being cheaters : egmo.org/egmos/egmo1/scoreboard/

Yeah , they did that to British professors form Cambridge too , because Polish female students won the first european contest in mathematics .Just scroll down the page and you will see country ranking .LOLs. Polish women are soooooo damn good .

Should be "Most Polish women are smart"
or "Most of the polish women are amart"

Oh, forgive me , my mother`s tonque is Polish . I communicate in Polish . All of you make mistakes although you are native English speakers . If you want to evaluate someone`s intelligence by second language proficiency , thats very intelligent of you . They have been doing this for years in the states . Go ahead do this .

It is still the reality in the US

Maybe it is time to stop using such primitive methods of retort ?

Landora - you really don`t know what you are talking about . You can write anything you want . It is just only a forum . You can even be a God here .

The question was not about the ranking of Rzeczpospolita . Why did you change the subject ? Oral exams have been taken at Polish universities for years not that long ago . So , stop lying that your parents were passing written exams at uni.

Maybe they became teenager parents with you ???

How can you judge the knowledge of the student from the rankings ? Such rankings are mainly concerned with facilities ? Is there a reliable measure of judging knowledge of an average student from law faculty of certain university ? If it exists tell me the source .

Are you going to degrade my knowledge by using rankings . Is that your wise and logical method , poor lady ?

Even when my parents studied many exams were written!

At law faculty ????? Prove it

And yes, people were cheating; it's not seen as something wrong by most people in Poland.

Inform us about the source of your barefaced lie .

Study / Polish schools and Polish educational system level in your eyes [135]

What I will say from recruiting Polish economics graduates is that their business sense is non existent, their maths appalling (I make them do a test with no calculator) and as Delph mentioned they can understand accounting at only a very basic level.

This is just a bare lie .

I will give an example of just one Polish university which is Warsaw University . So after looking at its merits , how can anyone say that Polish educational system lags behind US , especially in match .

Students from just this one university have been the best for many years .

mimuw.edu.pl/studia/rozne/osiagniecia/?LANG=en&para=k&parb=tc
mimuw.edu.pl/studia/rozne/osiagniecia/?para=k&parb=icpc
mimuw.edu.pl/studia/rozne/osiagniecia/?para=k&parb=ic
mimuw.edu.pl/studia/rozne/osiagniecia/?para=k&parb=gcj

Your statement - "they can understand accounting at only a very basic level" referring to Polish students means that you are just a bigoted and frustrated man who does not have any idea about the subject as most of you .

Here is country rankings:

community.topcoder.com/stat?c=country_avg_rating

Russian fed - 143 millions of people , China - 1,3 billions , Poland - 38 millions, USA -316 millions

Poland ranked at 2 place , USA - 6-th

By using match as a barometer of logical thinking , creativity and high IQ I proved that your bare statement is worthless. As you can find out , per capita Poland has got the smartest students .

People, if you want to study and have the worthless American diploma backed up by basic knowledge go to the states , but if you want to excell in real knowledge come to Poland .

Polish university is ranked 4-th , 13 -th , 20-th, the first American university is on the 28-th place:

community.topcoder.com/stat?c=school_avg_rating

That is real ranking , not those on paid pages of fake rankings , where not educational levels matter , but the standard of facilities .

I will gibe you

Pam, I know that, first hand from my family members ', and then went on to say your family studied In the USA, France and Canada!

I did not see the point of describing my family or friends educational history . But I explained that because you were so curious . I gave you reasons of my statement because I know this from first hand information . I even called yesterday to my cousin who studied on exchange program in UK and asked where she studied and you know what - she studied at Cambridge .

Yeah, we're thick as sh1t over here don't you know. ROFL!!!!!

Study / Polish schools and Polish educational system level in your eyes [135]

The poster stated that she went to a Polish university! How can she not know what they're like?

Public or private , there is a difference in Poland

What does this have to do with the Polish education system in 2013?

A lot !!!!!! If you don`t know that during the II WW Poland was destroyed and 63 % of our total GDP vanished and during the next 50 years there was robbery by Soviets . Just asking such silly question says a lot about an average poster here . What do you think funny people that rebuilding the whole country will take a decade or decades . It will take few decades and in some instances may never be rebuilt.

Like your family studied in the UK? Somehow I doubt this.

Listen lady - read what I wrote , I said friends , family etc . My family is not so large but prominent . So listen , my female cousin studied in England , but I don`t remember where , I was not interested to ask , because I don`t value British education too much . She went there for a year I think on student`s exchange program . But she graduated from biology and psychology ( got master in both subjects) from Polish university . Then my friend`s daughter was admitted to Cambridge last year at psychology . So what is it that you don`t comrehend . Then my niece studied social science in Toronto Canada , at the U of T . My nephew studied biology in Vancouver at the University of British Columbia . Also my one relative studied in Paris and then in Warsaw , Poland ( economics and finances ). So I could compare for example the level of biology and economics at British ,French , Canadian and Polish universities , because I have had first hand information from my family and friends .

Not enough students at Cambridge? It's one of our top universities! You've got to be joking!

It doesn`t matter , maybe years ago but surely not now . Look at the scores of British students in international olympiads, that says it all.

University graduates from the western part of Europe don`t have general knowledge about history , biology , mathematics , simple calculation even that compared to the 8- th grade of Polish primary school student . That is so shocking that I would never suspect that without exchanging information among my friends or family members .

Study / Polish schools and Polish educational system level in your eyes [135]

British educational system is in deep trouble , even bigger than Polish .British educational level is much lower comparing it to Polish public universities . British universities just have some advantages from the language ( which these days is international ) and partialy from the fact you didn`t suffer the war on your soil and did not have communism, so your country did not suffer massive destruction and killings of intelligence. You may not know about the fact that 184 professors from Cracow`s universities were either killed or sent to death camps by Germans .

Sonderaktion Krakau was the codename for a Nazi German operation against professors and academics of the Jagiellonian University and other universities in Nazi occupied Kraków, Poland, at the beginning of World War II. It was carried out as part of the much broader action plan, the Intelligenzaktion, to eradicate the Polish intellectual elite especially in those centers (such as Kraków) that were slated by the Nazis to become culturally German.

warhistoryonline.com/war-articles/operation-sonderakti on-krakau-german-operation-murder-members-intelligentsia-universities-krakow-poland.html

So , you British did not suffer such irreparable loss in the recent 50 years . To rebuild our structures took many years not to mention humane loss.

My friend`s daughter was admitted to Cambridge university course of psychology without any tests ,after just a conversation . I know this first hand . Her English proficiency was like native speaker`s because they were diplomats in USA for years . Why was it done ? I don`t understand , maybe they don`t have enough students theses days .

Getting back to your question . The answer is : where I studied there were no funny courses at the faculty of law and administration . It has always been law and administration . This university is UMCS in Lublin . So , my previous statements were very true. Some posters who distort facts will not be content with such news I suppose . Their charges sound stupid now and show their real intentions .

This course like European studies is at the faculty of philosophy and social science at UMCS .

The web page of my faculty is :
umcs.lublin.pl/articles.php?aid=3587&mid=119&mref=27685

Take a look at the long list of subjects I have had to pass . I passed 50 exams during my studies and I did not cheat because all exams were oral ( 3 students in front of the professor ) . How would you cheat in such circumstances . So stop lying about low level or cheating during exams . Maybe on your Polish private schools it is possible , but the diplomas given by such schools are worth the cost of the paper they were printed on .

umcs.lublin.pl/articles.php?aid=3585

Funny courses and private higher educational facilities were installed in mid 90-ies of the past century . The level of education at these private schools is so low that I don`t even try to evaluate it . It is pointless and everyone knows that . Some of you who are from GB came here just to teach English at these private schools and all you know about educational system in Poland is taken from this experience of teaching of lazy students at facilities like Koźminski private schools .

These schools have nothing to do with keeping certain level of education . They just produce thousands of future jobless youths whose preparation for further career is none.

Study / MBA in Poland for 40+ and older? [62]

I made it clear how easy it is to access tuition free studies offered by the Faculty of Law and Administration at UAM.

Why did you not mention about the course in your statement ?

Everybody knows your intentions , your real purpose of statements . Where in my statemants I was confused about the faculty and the course ? Through your statement I just made quick assumption like everybody else here about low requirements to get into courses of law and administration . After that when you hooked people on your twisted rod you revealed that it was not law but european studies . Do you realy have time to spend on such stupid arguments ? I assume that you have some personal problems . In all your statements you distort the facts by using unclear and riddled statements .

No one treats you as a reliable source of information . Go out , take a walk instead of being glued to the monitor of your PC . I happen to post here very rarely and lately I was curious about views among posters of PF about Volynian massacre of Poles and placed my opinion . And again I see stupidity from you about Polish universities . You know very little about the subject , but all the time you give negative advices like an expert to random people who are interested in studying in Poland .

It is very hard to get into popular faculties to be accepted to tuition free studies in Poland .Period .

Popular courses mean courses not similar to european studies . It is law , medicine , dentistry , informatics, economics , architecture etc.
In given case there were only several candidates , the number of candidates was lower than offered placements . There were 0.43 something candidates for one place on that course .

From all the courses offered in Polish universities you have chosen this specific course just to mislead people .

I have no intention to argue with trolls like you .

Perhaps Monia would like to explain to us why the third best university in the country (UAM) admits students with a mere 11 points to a faculty of administration and law?

Once again - you distorter - why did you use a word faculty of law and administration , , instead of saying european studies in Gniezno branch of UAM . Everybody now knows the real purpose of your statement .

When I graduated from UMCS studying at the faculty of law and administration , course law , there were no funny courses like european studies . There was law and administration courses only .

During my life I was always saying in everyday conversations that I graduated form the faculty of law . In everyday life who cares that there is a faculty and course . In formal language it is important , I had to use the faculty and the course , but polishforums does not use formal language .

You distorter, didn`t use the course either , just mentioned faculty . And now you are distorting my intentions blaming me of lying , while you are the first who dostorts facts not me and don`t put words or don`t answer as me .

Everyone knows and understands your intentions , that you wanted to mislead people here giving the the sense how easy is to get to study law in Poland .

Your comprehension level is appalling along with this cms guy . If you live in Poland and can`t comprehend simple things like calculation of minimum scores for aplicants , how can you survive here?

It was 71.60 last year for Law at Poznań University !

This minimum score is on the rise . In 2009 it was 66.40

Why do you people who are so bitter about your achievements in our country lie about Poland and undergrade its people ?
You cms , are you claiming that a person holding master degree in economics has got the sense of accounting on the basic level ? Who is going to believe you ? Nobody . Maybe your sense of comprehension is on the basic level instead , dear.

Pam , I know that, first hand from my family members. Some , who studied in France and some in USA and Canada . One of them who studied in France and acomplished bachelor in France and wanted to get a master in Poland and he received that this year . He said that maturity exams are so simple in France and also univeristy level so low that he needed one year to prepare himself to be admitted for master in Warsaw Univ of Technology. In Canada Polish children are put 1- 2 years ahead of their peers in schools . Also my niece received a bachalor degree from U of T and she told me that it was very easy , required no hard studying . My nephew told me that studying bachelor in Biology he did not have to know for example names of flora and fauna at all . I know from my cousin who has got a master from biology that she didn`t have time to enjoy studying because all her time at the university she spent on studying books , memorising names of flora and fauna not only in Polish but in Latin . This is just an example . To describe the big gap you would have to write a book .

Popular means - having the most applications on one place such as medicine and stomatology . If you want to apply for univ of technology it is not so difficult , because technical studies are not so popular . They even offer computers for new students to attract them . But it doesnt mean that such a student will be accepted for the second year . Most of them with low marks will not pass the first year .

minimal quota for Warsaw univ of technology :

You can observe a lot of differences between faculties.

medycyna2012.blogspot.com/2012/07/progi-punktowe-2012_10.html
Can you see the difference eg: Warsaw Medical University : medicine and dentistry?

You need to score appx above 88 % to be admitted for tuition free studies , so as you can see it is not easy to get there .

And Polish Matura is much much more difficult than British on advanced level . So the average British student would never pass the advanced level of Polish matura from chemistry or physics.

is that why so many Polish are anxious to attend UK universities?

Yes , it is easier to get there and money for the tuition and expenses are taken from a bank as a student`s loan and can cover all costs . Polish students can get something like 600 PLN as a student`s loan . What does it cover ? Nothing , maybe books and a bus ticket . The second thing they mostly apply for not science studies but humanistic . In Poland it is not easy to be admitted for tuition free studies . You need to pass with very high marks to get into popular faculties.

Quality of business and economics teaching lags far behind the US.

This is rubish !!!! Do not believe in rankings , because those rankings do not relate to curriculum, but the standard of facilities and the level of foreign quotes in English language periodicals . Since Polish system is underfunded , this sphere lags behind USA or some the most developed countries in Europe without any doubt . But it doesn`t matter for a student . What you are looking for is the knowledge , right ?

University programs, not to mention the lower level schools represent much higher level of education than universities in the U.S. or Western Europe. Typically, foreign students admitted for example to the Polish universities of technology have problems with curriculum. Although the level of the so-called English division is much much lower for foreigners. You can see it with the results of international contests, where students from Polish universities always occupy the top positions, especially in mathematics and science. I have a family history of children who traveled with parents to the United States and they were given about two years ahead of US peers . Conversely, students from the U.S. who wish to study at the Technical University are normally not able to follow the curriculum without tutorial help . Also , the graduates with American diplomas will not find work in Poland. Thus, the opinions of foreigners are bitter and are the result of many disappointments. But if you are bright and study hard you can make it .

USA or British criminal can be indicted by Polish prosecutor and be brought to Poland and stand trial before Polish court .
The Polish penal law shall apply to a foreigner who committed an offense abroad, directed against the interests of the Polish, Polish citizen Polish Polish legal person or an organizational unit without legal personality and to a foreigner who committed abroad a terrorist offense. The Polish penal law shall be applied when committed by a foreigner abroad an offense other than that referred to in § 1, if the offense is in the Polish penal law punishable by more than two years' imprisonment and the offender is present on Polish territory and decided not to extradite him.

to your claim that stating that bribery and corruption are fact of life in Poland is libel in Poland.

The survey indicated something else . According to their survey Poland is a corrupted country and such claim must be treated as a libel, because that survey is not a factual survey of corruption cases in Poland but the projections of feelings . Claiming by them that it is a fact of life in Poland can be treated as libel ,because wrongful and untrue criticizm is libel too.

You can prove that, can't you?

Sure, here you are : just an example , there are more ,four former Ernst & Young employees -three tax lawyers and an accountant-were convicted in 2010 of conspiracy to defraud the government, tax evasion, obstruction of the IRS and false statements to the IRS for their role in developing and defending the shelters. In November, a three-judge panel of the U.S. Court of Appeals for the 2nd Circuit threw out the convictions of two of those attorneys, finding there was insufficient evidence to convict, but upheld the conviction of the two other men. ( Appeals opinion here.) The men had all been members of what E&Y originally called its "VIPER" Group (for "Value Ideas Produce Extraordinary Results") and later renamed the "Strategic Individual Solutions Group".

What is the corruption ridden country , not Poland of course . Making Poland some kind of a scapegoat ( only to distract the public interest from their scandals and their own problems is also a libel .

It is a libel to deceive the general public and pack their heads with false data, using the term - projection of a fraud or feeling of beeing pressed to commit a fraud . Poland can sue E&Y for trying to libel Poland and that could be a "major trial" to accuse other country of corruption by giving only as an evidence a survey that measures the level of someone`s feeling . Building such a projection among prospective investors creates misleading environment destroying the future of Poland by portraying our country as a corrupted state which is a total false acusation . There are frauds or corruption acts commited by Poles , but it is just a small fraction of all business actions done by Polish citizens.

Take a look at these facts it is not about a bottle of cognac or a watch handed over as a present for a doctor :

The E&Y deal is just the latest in a long line of settlements relating to the promotion of over the edge-tax-shelters during the late 1990s and early 2000s. In 2005, KPMG agreed to pay what was then a record $456 million fine in a deferred prosecution deal covering its role in promoting shelters. Deutsche Bank agreed to pay a record $554 million in a deferred prosecution deal in 2010. And last June, accounting firm BDO USA paid $50 million, and admitted generating $6.5 billion in phony losses in its own deferred prosecution agreement. In a different line of tax abuse cases, in February 2009, Swiss Bank UBS entered into a deferred prosecution deal and paid $780 million in fines, for its role in helping Americans hide assets offshore. Deferred prosecution, also known as pretrial diversion, has been the feds' preferred method of dealing with wrongdoing by prominent corporations since the Department of Justice came under fire for causing the 2002 collapse of accounting firm Arthur Andersen, which was convicted of obstruction of justice in the Enron scandal. This past January, Switzerland's oldest bank, Wegelin & Co., went out of business after it was forced to plead guilty to helping to hide $1.2 billion for American tax cheats.

While the E&Y settlement might seem like it was late in coming, both civil and criminal litigation related to the tax shelter craze continues. Just this week, for example, a Louisiana federal judge shot down a shelter Dow Chemical used to create $1 billion in phony deductions between 1993 and 2003. And today, a Manhattan federal judge sentenced Donna Guerin, 52, to eight years for her role in promoting tax shelters while an attorney with the now defunct Jenkens & Gilchrist law firm. Guerin and three co-defendants were convicted of tax fraud in 2011, but later Guerin and two of her co-defendants were granted a mistrial as a result of misconduct by a juror-ironically, a law school graduate who lied about her background. Guerin later decided to plead guilty, while the other two, including former Jenkens & Gilchrist partner Paul Daugerdas, are scheduled to be retried in September.

I am not representative or associate of E & Y, so why should I care what you write about E & Y. Although it is not wise to write or speak about a person or company, without some source of fact, according to your post re: E & Y, the trial is pending, they have not been found guilty.

It is a fact not a suspicion that they are frauders . I don`t need to wait for the judgement , they, themselves happen to admit to a fraud commited by its emploees :) :)

In a deal with the government , accounting firm Ernst & Young agreed to pay $123 million to the government and admitted to wrongful conduct by some of its partners and employees in connection with the firm's participation, from 1999 to 2004, in the promotion of abusive tax shelters to rich individuals. In return, the firm itself won't face criminal charges.

So , they are frauders ! Now you can go to E&Y and snitch on me , Sherlock !

Only you , contrary to the rest of the reasonable people claim that E& Y has got more credibility than the a last year`s snow . People who want to get some credible financial reports know that they should ask an independent auditing firm rather than asking for big 4 corrupted acountants who will write whatever they are commisioned for .

The trial is pending , but it has got strong basis to convict people of E&Y who helped Lehman brothers to fool its shareholders. There is no space to expain the allegation`s grounds , but you can read the report how things were done and how the fraud was commited :

jenner.com/lehman

The authors of that report say that :

There was widespread fraud at the highest levels and the Big 4 auditors will eventually be accused of malpractice and complicity for doing nothing to prevent it, to warn us, or mitigate the impact on stakeholders.

. Only to make cash !!!!!

Do you think I commit a libel by repeating NYC prosecutors and authors of valid audition of Lehman brothers ?

Amazing that somebody who claims to be a working lawyer has time to sit trawling the web for news reports about one of the worlds largest accountancy firms.

Are you using this "libel " term to scare me and follow the path of others who try to scare me on this forum and by that try to exclude my views from this site ?

Do you Warszawski think that NY prosecutor was insane by convicting E&Y of fraud ?
(Reuters) - Accounting firm Ernst & Young was sued by New York prosecutors over allegations it helped to hide Lehman Brothers' financial problems, in the first major government legal action stemming from the Wall Street company's 2008 downfall.

The civil fraud case contends that Ernst & Young stood by while Lehman used accounting gimmickry to mask its shaky finances.

The lawsuit says Lehman ran "a massive accounting fraud," but it did not name as defendants any former top executives at the investment bank whose September 2008 collapse helped spark the global financial crisis.

The lawsuit seeks more than $150 million in fees that Ernst & Young received from 2001 to 2008 as Lehman's outside auditor -- less than 1 percent of its global annual revenue -- plus other unspecified damages.

The lawsuit was filed by New York Attorney General Andrew Cuomo. People close to Cuomo said one factor in bringing the case was that he knows that the U.S. Securities and Exchange Commission already is investigating former Lehman chief Richard Fuld and other former top Lehman executives.

"Maybe Big 1000 " ???? The world is not governed by their policies or surveys . They just happen to live on bribes for favorable "entertaining" accounting or expertises whose findings depend on how much money will be delivered by channels of corrupted dealings.

I thought that mature people already know that the world is corrupted at all levels and the more money is involved the more corrupted people become . The majority of EU institutions are immersed in a sick and corrupt system . Every year EU money are lost in billions in corrupted dealings . Just read some independent bodies or non profit organisation`s reports on this subject . That is not my opinion it is reality you live in . The whole European financial and banking system is based on corruption , the closer you get to central European Agencies the more corrupted the system becomes.

Do you really beleve that a survey made by a dubious agency based on assumptions is worth of something ?
It is a survey that measures feelings not cases of real bribery . It has nothing to do with reality . People in Poland talk about bribery, but not too many of them encountered it. It is a recollection of a past time where people felt the need to thank a doctor for a surgery by giving him a present ( a bottle of good cognac ). Comparing that kind of behaviour with bribery is ridiculous . But most Poles consirer this as a bribery . So assuming that Poles are pressured to give a bribe when considering small presents , brings this survey` results to a bin . There are cases of bribery which are prosecuted and taken to a court , like in every civilized country . This shows real level of bribery .

The latest campaign was launched in December 2010 and has uncovered a series of complex schemes used by medical professional including use of off-shore accounts and payments made by insurance companies.

It comes as Treasury figures show that £13.1 million has been clawed back from more than 2,000 medical staff since the HMRC launched its crackdown.

One doctor has paid back more than £1 million while one dentist has repaid more than £300,000, it was reported.

Here is the full text saved on my PC about the EU big scale bribery example going in millions of Euro not some few Polish zlotys :

Among ordinary citizens, one of the most enduring images of the EU is that of the 'gravy train' - MEPs and bureaucrats in Brussels determined to get their hands on as many taxpayer-funded perks as possible. Given the EU's continuing popularity crisis, you would think that the various EU institutions would be all over this issue like a rash.

Life / Bribery and corruption 'fact of life' in Poland? [137]

Fifty nine percent of business managers told the consulting firm's '2013 Fraud Survey' that bribery and corruption are common in Poland.

This forum will never stop entertaining me . Every time ( once every few weeks I open this site and every time I find some entertaining subjects about my country )

Are you serious warszawski ?

Better start tracking the affairs in the old EU financial institutions , banks and enterprises , where bribery has become so well camouflaged that it is difficult to pinpoint, ( through the long years of bribery practices ) Who ,but the Ernst & Young were involved in the scandal of Enron's creative accounting. Try harder !

News / 2012 - 2013 Will be the most severe Polish winter. [38]

Its been a long harsh winter with no signs of letting up...

Harsh winter ????? Have you seen such conditions this winter ? Me , not. It has been long, but definitively not harsh. I don`t remember really cold days with strong winds . This kind of conditions you can call harsh . The temperatures were from +5 to -8 C .I think the worst factor was that there were too many gloomy days .

History / For what the Germans owe Poland one trillion U.S. dollars? [300]

They don't.For instance all key positions in Polish army in the East were held by Soviets dressed up in Polish uniforms.Marshall Konstantin Rokossowski was even Poland's Minister of Defence.

That`s correct . There were no high ranking personel in the Army consisted of Polish nationals at that time . So , Soviets decided on all important matters . Polish people were reduced to perform administrative duties . If there were Polish people in higher positions they were Polish Jews . For example Berman , a man with a blood on his hands . Soviets knew from their own experience that they were easier to be controled than Poles .

So , how can anyone say that Poland decided on something . In the 50 -ies when the communism was deeply rooted in Polish reality they started to nominate Polish citizens as high ranking personel . That`s the story of our independence . Also you should all know that the changes 1989 were just another deception of Polish people . Post commies came into power , just another people . The whole party called Unia Demokratyczna was a scam , it consisted of mostly Polish Jews who were communists earlier but few Polish people knew those facts . Geremek was the biggests biggot , w member of the communist party at The Warsaw University , despicable personality who said that he hated Poles in an interview with a journalist Hanna Krall , you can find it in the internet , easy to find.

I can`t see any changes on the horizon . There are no people who can change the situation . You need to have some serious sponsors to promote new faces on the political scene , but no one wants to risk their money . So the same post commune , dyed foxes ( as we say in Polish ) are at the crib.

Life / Are there many crypto-Jews in Poland? [67]

But , there are bad people and good people , bad Poles and good Jews . You can`t judge people like you do . I don`t want anybody to get the wrong impression here . I am not against anybody . I am against hipocrisy and lies .

I like reasonable and honest people, transparent environment , that`s all.

In my opinion Mr Norman Finkelstein is a hero who can oppose such a machine and at the same time he is not scared of Mosad .

Life / Are there many crypto-Jews in Poland? [67]

Contacts by some people like Michnik with Commies were a shock for Polish public , even in 2005 year , but in just 10 years after Polish Solidarity was stifled that was incredible . People from opposite sides were meeting together - Michnik with Urban . When you add Monika Olejnik, a woman who plays a major role in Jewish media - TVN , now you can see that the transformation was just an agreement to shift only names but with the same status quo of the same circle , Judeo Commies.

Piotr Semka , a prominent journalist , was a whitness of that secret meeting in 1991 , that material is his own relation from that night .

That`s not my own immagination , you can watch that material yourself . Is that funny ? That those people were meeting together ? When you think that on the outside they pretended to be anemies, but in private they were meeting like friends , it is not funny anymore . It is tragic for Poland , that such people exist in our public life . After some years Michnik was filmed with Jaruzelski , while fishing in some remote places on Masurian Lakes .

Why were they affraid of their connections , if their intentions could have been transparent . Probably not so transparent as you all think .
