News / Poland's Sejm passes anti-terrorist act; opposition negate [86]

You have never heard of the concentration camps the US govt set up for Japanese Americans during WW2 just to be on the safe side.

And Hiroshima and Nagasaki to be on the safe side, and Auschwitz also to be on the safe side. Do you still live in the 1940s ? Newsflash, we're in 2016, these methods aren't for this era.

France is now under a state of emergency at present

It's good that you mentioned France, if you're following the news there, they are having demonstrations even thought hey're under a state of emergency. My concern with PiS's anti-terrorism law, is that terrorism might be used as a pretext to ban legitimate democratic protests, as many many regimes have done that.

Love / Asian guy in love with Polish girl (any chance?) [125]

I don't know how the dating culture is in Korea, but in most European countries:

You like a girl, you ask her on a date, she's interested, she goes out with you, if things go well, you ask her again, if she's also still interested she'll keep going out with you, things should escalate by the first couple of dates (kissing, making out .. etc), if things continue to go well, then you will start seeing each other more and more.. then you'll be practically in a relationship, then you can ask her or you can both discuss to be in a relationship.

What you did is pay for a girl to travel for free in hopes that she will like you, that doesn't usually work.

You asked her to be your girlfriend although (I assume) you didn't even kiss her, people don't usually do that. I hope you didn't tell her that you loved her also...

did i bother her.

That's not a good question to ask.. If you think low about yourself and that you're someone who bothers people, other people will start thinking the same about you, even if you weren't bothering them.

If you are still in the same city, ask her out on a date, and try to kiss her at the end (or during the date if you saw an opportunity) , if she rejects you, then you will be 99% sure that she's not interested. Forget about her, and move on.

Travel / Muslim tourist visiting Poland - safety concerns [51]

becoz we don't want to be victims or any danger, its sounds like a warzone .

It's not that brutal, Warsaw should be ok since it's summer time and there are many tourists. But there's always a slight possibility that someone on the street will give you "weird" looks, or even say something about you in Polish (you wouldn't even notice, since you don't speak polish)

Love / Asian guy in love with Polish girl (any chance?) [125]

We had a very nice conversation, she told me lots of her stuffs like her family, her experience from child and exs.

That doesn't mean anything. good "friends" speak about stuff like that.

And she told me she cannot love a person fast cuz she is different.

She's not that different, it takes time with most people to "fall in love".

You paid for everything and she's not even your girlfriend, not even a person that you date.

Usually, in Poland (and most of the world), if you are interested in a girl, you ask her out for a date, if she is interested in you, she'll accept, if she's not interested, she'll decline or give you some excuse. That's how you know if there's a potential for some "romance" to happen between you two. When you paid for everything, she probably accepted because she saw it as a free opportunity to travel and not because she likes you.

I don't know if you're still in touch with her, or if you still talk to her, but the best way to know for sure it simply to ask her out on a date.

I don't want to be rude, but I'm pretty sure she wasn't into you.

She saw an opportunity to travel for free, so she did take that opportunity. You should move on, and you shouldn't expect that someone will love you if you pay for them.

I am willing to take care of spend for the one I love.

That's ok, if you're 100% sure that they love you back.

and be able to talk to respective populations

So you think that I have been living in Poland since 2013 without having any contacts with Poles ? You should come visit us at Poznan University of Economics to have a chitchat with the Polish professors, and discuss PiS's economic policy with them. You might be in shock when you discover how they heavily criticize it, maybe you only have contact with Poles in remote villages.

Anyway, you are diverging from the main topic by making this discussion about me.

I think you believe all people are evil and should not have power

I'm not an anarchist

and not all people seeking power are evil

I didn't say that all people seeking power are evil, but we shall see what PiS will do with the "extra" power that they are trying to acquire.

by what standard

Jus sanguinis

do you seriously believe state media were objective before PiS

Do you believe that state media are objective after PiS ?

we don't need hysterics here

Are you telling me that these aren't indicators of totalitarianism ? Maybe it's too early to judge now, but time will tell.

learn Polish and talk to Polish people more

I am Polish :)

you will learn more about how totalitarian Poland has become and how opressive it is

This is still in process.. the laws that are being passed indicate that Poland is heading this way, we shall see :)

If you are so clueless about what's going on here, better leave.

Meddling with the Constitutional Tribunal work, passing laws that can be used to silence opposition, taking control of state media..
If you look at history, these are all alarming signs that suggest a shift towards totalitarianism

if you don't like leave

I will probably leave after graduating this year, it's just a shame to witness Poland's transformation to totalitarianism. When I first came here in September 2013, things were great, but now it's deteriorating.

maybe you will thus justify the forces of Light from Russia to stop fascism yet again as they did in the past

Is that your way of calling me Pro-Russian ?

a truly despicable regime that opresses the masses - it's a matter of time when joint American-Russian forces liberate us only to discover mass-graves of the regime's opponents

Your sarcasm isn't contributing to the discussion. I have lived before under the rule of a regime that had the exact same laws that PIS just passed, needless to say, they used all these laws to crush the opposition, and monitor and intimidate/arrest anyone who opposes them.

these countries must really fail

Not necessarily, but Jon demonstrated how terrorists can easily use other sources of telecommunication, so this law isn't effective in detecting terrorists, and might be used in the way that Kpc described:

when a normal citizen, who registers his SIM card, does something that the government doesn't like (although it's not truly illegal - for example opens a Facebook profile criticizing the government) - then it will be not a problem to find a way to punish him.

Internet blocking on demand of Internal Security Agency
Proposed regulation provides for immediate blocking of the access to any Internet content on demand of the Chief of Internal Security Agency. Only after 5 days, a court will be supposed to verify whether the blocking demand was justified.

It reminds me of the Turkish government when it blocks Twitter, Youtube, and Facebook, in order to silence the voice of the opposition and disconnect them from the world in an attempt to hide the protests that were occurring on Taksim square.

We are at war with international terrorism

throughout history, many totalitarian regimes used different pretexts to ban the legitimate opposition protests.. and this seems like just another case.

even the most democratic of countries

I have never heard that protests were banned under the pretext of terrorism in France, UK, USA, Spain, Belgium, and these countries were hit harder by terrorism than Poland.

I tried to search for the components of the act, and found these, correct me if i'm wrong:

Limited freedom of assembly , the government may gain a powerful tool to ban public protests

So basically the government can ban all the protests by the opposition under the pretext of terrorism ? It sounds like the martial law from PRL doesn't it ?

EU not sanctioning France for having a poor economy isn't comparable to Kaczyński's case of closing down media and meddling with the Constitutional Tribunal.

Travel / Mosques in Krakow? [131]

NEW Cathedral build in Damascus

There are many new churches that have been built in Damascus, most notably Saints Peter and Paul Church in Mashrou' Dummar, which is a special church since it's one of the few (and maybe the only ?) church that serves both Roman Catholics and christian orthodox (they organize an orthodox mass and a catholic mass everyday).

Also,Annunciation Church In masaken barzeh (opened in 2015) , and St. Nicholas Church in mazze

under the implied or direct protection of some kind of strongman government.

religious minorities were relatively safer, far safer than under more 'democratic' systems where the Sunni majority usually votes to crack down on religious minorities..

The main problem isn't that the minorities need dictatorships, the problem is that radicalization is a tool that being used by Saudi arabia, Qatar to topple the regimes of the middle east, not to mention that the destabilization caused by the US and UK in Iraq caused the creation of jihadism there, some people became desperate after seeing their country being run down by invaders and chose radicalization as a mean to resist this invasion.

alking nonsense and lying about me "badmouth Damascus". Ignorance? You're ignorant,

You implied that Damascus is a place that lacks religious tolerance by saying

as soon as there is a Cathedral in Damascus

, and that led me to respond the way I did.

You're the one who expressed ignorance, first implying that there are no cathedrals in Damascus, then saying that there are no new churches in Damascus.

keep away from Krakow with your buildings that don't belong there.

Imagine an ugly mosque in Krakow. Lol.

I am not a Muslims, so a mosque in Krakow isn't my concern. But i'm highly against the way some of you express yourselves against Muslims, although I understand the reasons, and I myself always criticize Islam's backward teachings, but I believe that marginalizing of Muslims was the lead cause of radicalization and terrorism, especially in the case of Muslims in Belgium and France, in comparison, Turkish Muslims in Germany are well integrated and contribute positively to the society, the same can be said about the Muslims in Canada.

Although you can't see it, but on Facebook there are always debates between Muslims about Europe and the west, the few Muslims that criticize western culture are always faced with thousands of comments by other Muslims who disagree with them and defend western culture due to its openness and acceptance of others, the equal opportunities Europe and the west, and other positive values..

If people start showing hatred and aggressiveness towards peaceful non-radicalized Muslims, it will lead into more radicalization. I can go on and give more examples how wars and injustice are the leading cause of radicalization..

Sure they should be a Mosque in Kraków as soon as there is a Cathedral in Damascus

HAHAHAHA, there are many cathedrals in Damascus and its surroundings :) Ex Pat 52 already gave you a long list of cathedrals in aleppo (alep) and Damascus, I'd like to add The Convent of Our Lady of Saidnaya, Mariamite Cathedral of Damascus, the Monastery of Saint Moses the Abyssinian, and many others that I can't translate to english.

Ignorance won't be tolerated, educate yourself before you badmouth Damascus .

News / Poland directly threatened by ISIS. Do Islamists planning terrorist attacks in Poland? [390]

And when you are don't with that go on to read how they enjoy killing dogs by poisoning them and attacking people who are walking their dogs and killing the dogs.

It's the first time that I hear of this !!!?
Can you please specify the countries that do this ? i'm 100% sure that this doesn't apply to Syria, UAE, Lebanon, Jordan...as I have been in these countries and I know many dog owners and never heard of such incedent.

Yup, just google it.

well, as you can see, these numbers differ from one country to a other, and there are muslim countries that haven't been mentioned since there is no significant domestic violence in these countries.

In syria 25%, Jordan 20% , egypt 33%, afghanistan 85%, so as you can see, it differs from one country to another, although all these countries have a muslim majority.

in europe, according to a EU studies, the percentages also vary

poland has a good percentage of 13%, Denmark 32% ,Latvia 32%, Finland 30%, and the EU average is at 22%

Islamists provide video's of how to correctly beat your wife

Do you have statistics concerning wife beating in each muslim country ? I think it's totally different between indonesia, morroco, saudi arabia and turkey, albania... i'm not against pointing out the negativities in each religion especially islam, but you can't assume that a person has certain charactaristics just because he's from a muslim background, you also need to take into consideration, the country, the city, even personal background. each person is different.

I'm pretty sure by non white immigration they meant anyone who isn't Catholic and from Europe (except the European Muslime countries)

what about armenians who have a darker skin tone and are orthodox ? it's becoming ridiculous

"Most Poles don't want Muslims in their country.. plain and simple, end of story. Even University of Warsaw backs this claim up (69% of Poles surveyed are against non white immigration). "

non white ≠ muslims, there are white muslims (from Syria even), and catholics who have darker skin tones (also from syria), you can also find similar or other variations in other countries.

btw, they caught the perpetrator of the wroclaw bomb. he's a white and very average pole since his name is paweł R.

m.wroclaw.wyborcza.pl/wroclaw/1,106542,20133745,bomber-jest-juz-przesluchiwany-przez-prokurature.html

we should protect poland against anyone who's named paweł, because it appears that pawełs have tendencies to undertake terrorist acts, I believe that we should put all pawełs under heavy observation

News / The only three normal cities with any respect for humanity in Poland [99]

First of all, most of "Syrian refugees" are neither Syrian nor refugees, very often it's not even possible to tell where they really came from...

You can't punish syrians because other nationalities are joining them, and Syrians are easily identifiable, during their interview in camps, the interviewers identify them simply by speaking with them, you can't fake the syrian dialect (plus they are asking them detailed questions about the places that they come from ex: Street names, restaurants, shops), many arabs where caught during the interview because of their distinctive dialect.

The Turks have been in Germany for a long time, and there are no signs that their descendants are shifting towards extremism (the same goes with the Turks living in Belgium)

the last defenders of the White Race.

Are you for real ?

"Will this opinion change if Germany is hit with a terrorist attack?

Few days ago: Germany arrests two teenagers suspected of bombing Sikh temple
Islamist backgrounds."

What does this have to do with the syrian refugees ? is it because most of them are muslims ?
This whole mindset of "muslim refugees means more terrorism" is erroneous.

If you look at the history of the terrorist attacks in europe, and check the nationalities of the perpetrators, you'll see that they're usually north africans or europeans with north african origins, or from pakistani origins.

There are many turkish people who live in europe, they never committed a terrorist attack, the same goes with syrians.
