A Muslim Arab in Poland who loves Polish KABANOS & VODKA

Few years ago I came to Poland with my polish wife for the first time, I didn't know much about Poland and frankly I thought it was a communist country which was a little bit off putting.

I was trying my convince her to immigrate to the US where I have a family and a life planned further ahead, but she really loved this country and I fell in love too the first time I stepped foot in Chopin International airport, it was spring time, everything was green and beautiful.

Since her attachment to Poland was infectious, and polish women could be very convincing sometimes, eventually we decided to move here together, where we spent quiet a lot of money to settle and learn the language and eventually recognizing my certificates etc.

The thing is, I had enormous love and respect for this country since the first time I stepped here, even though I'm originally a muslim arab, I decided to open up to my new life; I drank polish VODKA and fell in love with KABANOS and KARKOWKA, not to mention even stripping off for NAGA STREFA SAUNA when I was told that I can't put on more than a towel on Wednesdays :D I did all that and I never for once harrassed nor stared at the beautiful naked polish bodies -of course I peaked when no body was looking but so did poles.

My neighbours and colleagues love me, even the man at the Sauna likes me he even blinks sometimes ;)

But life in Poland isn't always that pink, many people really hate foreigners, you always feel them staring at or even acting rude and sometimes simply cursing and screaming about my color or my origin. I read WYBORCZA and RZECZPOZPOLITA everyday and you always feel the sense of accusation towards arabs as if we are a punch of animals coming to kill and rape women.

We are the same, we have good people and bad people just like you do, but the xenophobic sense unfortunately has taken over this country, people are afraid and ignorant which is a dangerous mix, poles criticise others all the time but they are closer to Saudi Arabia than most arabs are.

I came here with great love to Poland, I have never citicised it, I have always defended it online, I have seen myself growing old in here but now I'm afraid, I'm worried someone could hurt me or hurt my children, I'm worried that the current government could do much more to protect it's foreigners and I'm worried that Poland will end up alone with a low birth rate and a collapse in economy in the next few decades if current attitude did not change, Poles are living currently what we arabs like to call POOR PEOPLE SUDENLY GETTING RICH and SNOBBY.

Neither WYBORCZA nor RZECZPOSPOLITA describe Arabs as a punch of animals coming to kill and rape women.

Indeed Wyborcza (which is a piece of left-wing garbage) almost lick the as5 of arabs and refugees in general because os ridiculously politically correct.

"poles criticise others all the time but they are closer to Saudi Arabia than most arabs are."

As someone that lives in Saudi Arabia, i can say that you are terribly wrong. Poles will not put you in jail if you dont obbey any religious thing. On the other hand, i can go to jail if i drink water during daylight at Ramadan here.

I meant closer to Saudi in the way most people do not tolerate difference or have one vision influenced by national media.

What I ment regarding Wyborcza and Rzecz is that they are extremely biased, unfortunately the most open minded national media here is closer to the british Dailymail than to BBC

What I meant regarding your comment on Wyborcza and Rzecz is that you came here for trolling as it was obvious you never read those papers. The only question is when you get bored with your trolling.

I'm not a refugee, I've come here by my own will and with my own money with the intention of settling in and raising a family, I can still move anytime to any country of my choice but that is not what my wife nor I want.

I'm tired of being looked to as an unwanted person untill proven otherwise, a feeling that most foreigners of color in this country have, they even beat people in warsaw metro these days out of fear and hatered.

P.S. I don't think that helping refugees should be an obligation, nations should have there own decisions in regards to whom to help or sympathise with.

Peaceforce, if you want to blend in, it is all about clothes and accent.

I can tell if a black guy is British or African at fifty paces; it's all how he wears his clothes, and what style they are.

I did not even know a family friend was not English, but Lebanese, for many years. He had a posh English accent you see...:)

This is all I can suggest to you. Get to Polish elocution lessons!

I'm working on it, cheers man :D

It's sad but true that unlike in the US where most Arabs are educated elites, here in Europe many arabs came as skilled workers with no high education, they don't speak the local language and end up in low economical conditions, so people here are often surprised to meet a decent arab.
