Should the members of German minority in Poland board the first train to Germany?
If they pronounce will to be part of Germany - yes! Because these people treat what is not solely theirs as private property. If they want to be in Germany - take your suitcases and get out. I hope not many Polish people disagree with me on this issue. Read attentively to what I said:
It is still Lithuanian and happiness of those residents to be a part of Poland they may easily express on board of Vilnius-Poland one-way train.
I have decided not to treat your activity in this thread
as breaking the Hrubieszów Agreement
I re-read the Hrubieszow agreement and didn't find any trespasses on my part. If you see my wrong, please, indicate which part I crossed.
Please do not exhaust the trust credit you have
and cease your anti-Polish posting.
Where have you seen any anti-Polish sentiments, Torq? Pilsudski himself confessed his direct involvement in the mutiny and all the military brouhaha which ended in the annexation of Lithuania. Did he lie? Regarding Lithuanian language - it needs time and Lithuanians of Polish origins, not being even immigrants, but 100% citizens should apply a bit more respect to THEIR land, which is not Poland. "Kresy - Utracone ziemie" is my ridicule of similarly named Polish sites which spread international hatred and by the number of subscribers clearly indicate that it is not 10 crazy people out there spreading it.
Mind you - I've recently read an article about... you know what... in a very respectable newspaper, by internationally recognized Polish journalist, but I decided not to post it, as that might be interpreted as breaking the Hrubieszów Agreement.
Again, the Hrubieszow agreement concerns itself with UPA-AK issues, not Lithuania and its Polish minority. If you are interested in signing another one which would mean other areas of history, I will be glad to work on them as well.
Please show the same restraint as I did, and do not interfere in Kresy related threads. Thank you.
Woooow...:) Torq, Torq... Are you trying to silence me up by making a thread about Ukrainian insurgents of UPA written by some world-renowned Polish journalist. Go ahead. Don't restrain yourself. Do what you have to do, but don't blackmail me so ingraciously. Polish Forums is a forum, not a dictatorship of "correct" thoughts. + as we both signed in Hrubieszow agreement - we are for Polish-Ukrainian committee to learn
the history of those times in our mutual past. The key is to learn, not pour dirt on absent from this site Lithuanians who cannot, therefore, defend their position.
Let's say they will be allowed to speak Polish during breaks. Wow.
So, basically, you lied. Well, thanks, good to know. Think of something new to smear Lithuanians and then wow again. I seem to like it.
Their position from the begining is: Poles deserve it.
It is definitely not their position. Some Polish people have to understand what it is like. Look at Poland - you have 99% Catholics and around that of Poles. Does it tell you about your country's policy in the past? I think it does - moreover, that there are a lot of boasting about tolerance in the Commonwealth politics. Today, you boast that you are so open to put Lithuanian signs for some Polonized, Catholicized village inhabited by Poles of Lithuanian ancestry who after decades of "tolerance" are so interested in your signs! Good for you. You can afford it. They understandibly cannot. I wish to see how Poland would have behaved today if it was 50% Catholic, 26% Russian Orthodox and 24% Swedish Protestant? You would be singing another song. So, please, step back and look into the root of the problem. Put yourself in their shoes. Why do you always seem to view everything from your own point of view. I don't argue that there should be a dialogue and compromise can be achieved, but understand them.
any argument worth its salt is capable of forensic scrutiny.
