Maybe in Lithuania?

I'm a new user and I cannot post a hyperlink. Check www . kurierwilenski . lt and article named "The Police Threaten Fines for Hanging a Polish Flag".

I remember a story from my 15-year old student from a few years back. He told me that a couple of Italian shopkeepers refused to speak to him in English. They persisted in speaking Italian and it drove him nuts as his English was top drawer.

Huh? 'refused' presupposes that they could speak English. Was this in Italy? Britain?

(I've never been, but from what I hear English doesn't get you very far in most of Italy, French goes a lot further).

As for most Anti-Polish country in Europe, I would nominate Belarus.

Merged: Anti-Polonism, not anti-Semitism?

The Anti-defamtaion League of B'nai B'rith and otehr Jeiwsh forums and websites never concern themselves with anti-Polish discrimination and rightly so. Their sole thrust are the issues, causes, concerns, interests and good name of the Jewish people. They usually also conveniently overlook any wrongs Jews have committed against Poland (from siding with the partitioning powers and KPP subversion in the inter-war period to the persecution of Poles by the Soviet-installed terrorist regime). Since PF deals with Polish issues, concerns and interests, why should it be so precocupeid with some alien -ism?

Of course, anti-Polonism is no better or worse than any other form os discrimiantion. Anti-Kurdism, Anti-Hispanicism and anti-Hungarianism are no different from anti-Semitism in that they all involve a negative bias. And all of them deserve to be discussed and analysed, but not necessarily on PF.

I think this topic has been discussed too much on PF.
Let's drop it, huh?

I agree, but not a day goes by that some PFer doesn''t raise the spectre of anti-Semitism. They are the ones who should be told that the topic has already been ridden to death. The a-S word appears on PF 10 maybe 20 times more often than anti-Polonism, Polanophobia or any other anti-Polish formualtion.
