The way that he rose out of absolutely nowhere to advise senior Israeli politicians, and now that he's constantly at the side of Morawiecki... it's just strange.
Yep we pretty much agree on this. He's gone from a complete nobody in Poland, to suddenly, in a short space of time, being all over the Polish media and constantly with or around PiS politicians. It's obvious he isn't in this because of some new found love of Poland.
If, as you say, PiS drop this new law in the face of Israeli opposition, then hard questions need to be asked.
Of course the difference between me and you on this, is that you would love for the right to split and many PiS supporter to turn on them. It only gives the opposition an opportunity to strengthen and you would hope it's enough to prevent PiS from being re-elected. I on the other hand, still believe that PiS is the best thing for Poland at this time, much better than PO was for 8 years + there is practically no serious opposition right now. Having said that, I've never claimed that they were perfect, and this cosiness with Israeli representatives is concerning for sure. It will be interesting to see what happens with this. If PiS stick to their guns then their voters will be happy. If they wobble on this, it could lose them supporters.
Is there are a line of countries and people which would like to to tell Poland what laws should introduce on its soil and what shouldn't?
It seems so, and right now it appears to be Israeli. This new found 'friendship' with people connected to the Israeli government has so far been followed by
1] PiS getting criticised for reacting too slowly to the handful or anti-Semitic and xenophobic slogans in the Polish Independence Day march.
2] Demands for the delegalisation of ONR
3] And now anger at a law they wish to bring in to tackle the 'Polish death camps' myth.
Why are people from other countries even getting involved? What on earth does a new law being looked at in Poland have to do with Lapid or Netanyahu? It would simply be a law defending the good name of Poland and preventing lies about supposed Polish death camps being repeated - why does it bother them?
