The countries acceded the EU in 2004, entered with hard conditionality so they had really to be attentive to their fiscal and financial policy.

That is not the only reason,it comes back to culture as well.

Its called pure, clean hate.

Hate appertains to a narrow mind which are eventually pawns in the big game. The intellectuals are given more complicated feelings.
Simply saying if one says "I hate Russians/Poles" that's a clear sign of a dull wit.

Yes. You gotta give everyone a chance, unless that someone writes you off and thinks he's better than you are because his people are superior. At that point he's the wit.

If he's a wit he'll never tell his people are superior in face, even if he indeed thinks so.

I believe that Nigerian Pygmies are the superior race. End of discussion!

It is not Polish syntax. We use nieroby, lewusy, tępaki, rozrechotane pacany but not pigs

Give us some sense what is like for Greek people to consistently and constantly for the past couple of years hear themselves refer to by many people in the rest of the world as freeloaders and tax evaders and that kind of thing?

This is the one thing that unites all Greeks - a distaste for being painted as the overreachers, the spendthrift, insufferables of the world who are bringing the global economy, at least the European economy down with them... The dignity - this is the greatest deficit that the Greek people feel in their bones - the fact that they are not feeling dignified any more that their sense of dignity has been taken away from them.

You know the players though; is there any out there who you think could restore Greek dignity?

I think that there are very few politicians in Greece, active politicians, who have the guts, to put it bluntly, to do the only one thing that could restore dignity. And the only one thing that could restore dignity is to look into the eyes of Mrs. Merkel, look into the eyes of German hardworking tax payers and say: No more loans to a government because those loans are not being used in order to reenergize our Greek economy, they are being used in order to pay bankers. Bankers are insolvent, and your money is being thrown into the black holes of a banking system that is insolvent.

We are comatose, don't follow us down that road. A politician that does say that of behalf of the Greek people to our northern European brothers and sisters would restore Greek dignity and I can't see such a politician emerging as a leader in our country.

Nice try, troll. But you couldn't even get the ethnic slur right.

If anything, we're the Filipinos of Europe - Catholic, willing to move anywhere for work, and few of us cause trouble.

If anyone's "the blacks of Europe" (whatever that means anyway), it's uneducated UK-born benefit-breeders like you.

And we're entitled to feel superior to those south-eastern tax avoiders.

Did you notice that Poles usually felt inferior to every ethnic group of Western Europe

Don't the Poles also drink the blood of little children? Are some of the english people really that insecure and pathetic that they feel the need to start pathetic threads like that on the polish forums? Don't you have anything more interesting to do? Like getting some education or qualifications for example? Are you the gutter of the british society and feel the need to 'rise' above someone to feel better? How do you even dare accuse anyone of racism being a racist yourself?

That is what some Catholic Poles say about Jews. I think that they mean Jews in general and not just Polish Jews. I've certainly never heard it said about anybody who wasn't a Jew.

How do you know the person who started the thread was English?

It's not nice to hear racism directed at your own nationality.

It isn't 'politically correct'. But I got the idea that many Poles were against 'political correctness'. (When the politically incorrect remarks aren't directed against Poles).

From what I have seen so far, most of this forum is about being disrespectful towards everything that is polish, and most absurd and offensive arguments are being raised against polish people, and you are accusing someone of racism because I am defending my nation from a disgusting, unjust racist attack? What that person has written wasn't even a rational argument, just some mad racist babbling. So according to you it is ok to offend polish people, and when they defend themselves it is racist towards the racist attacker? :D You have some interesting sense of morality.

However he or she might not be english, that's true - I assumed that since most of the threads here about UK he or she was.

Probably you have just focussed on the Polonophobic threads. There are also plenty of anti-semitic threads here by people claiming to be Poles. But, for some reason, they appear to have escaped your attention.

Yes, I haven't read them yet, I found this forum only yesterday, and there are a lot of threads. I didn't know I was supposed to read everything anyone has ever written here to be able to post. But thank you for admiting that there are lost of racist, anti-polish threads on this forum, I couldn't agree more.

Where did I make a personal attack on someone, except for the person who has started this thred and has earned such treatment by their rudeness? you are very touchy for a nation that is supposed to have such a distance and a sence of humour :)

Unless of course you think a sense of humor is only when the English attack the Polish, and when the Polish defend themselves it is racism and personal attack :)

You are "defending" your nation against a handful of anonymous people who are posting on an Internet forum, in case you haven't noticed yet.

That is what some Catholic Poles say about Jews. I think that they mean Jews in general and not just Polish Jews.

If there is a trait of character or a vice for Poles to reproach themselves with it's the mindless imitation of the way of thinking of others:

Blood libel:
bbc.co.uk/religion/religions/judaism/history/350.shtml

In 1144, Jews in Norwich were accused of a ritual murder. A rumour sprung up that a Christian child had been kidnapped by Jews, tied to a cross and stabbed in the head to simulate Jesus' crown of thorns.

While the Norwich account did not contain the accusation that the child's blood was drained and was then ritually drunk at Passover, and so does not constitute the full blood libel, it is a story of the same type and is generally seen as the entry point into England of such accusations.

The rumour was false - for one thing, the Torah forbids the eating and drinking of any form of blood - but it became the first recorded case in Europe of 'blood libel'. The accusation was enough to get Jewish leaders in the town executed.

The other main charge that early 11th-century Christians levelled at Jews was that of host desecration. The host is the wafer used during Christian communion; England was Catholic at this time and to Catholics the host is literally Jesus's flesh, so mistreating it was an incredibly serious thing to do.

Jews were variously accused of stabbing the host wafer with pins, stepping on it, stabbing it with a knife until Jesus' blood flowed out and nailing it in a symbolic re-enactment of the crucifixion.

Jews were also accused by their Christian neighbours of poisoning wells and spreading the plague. Each fresh claim gave rise to new massacres.

Accusations of blood sacrifice continued in the 12th and 13th centuries:
1181 - accusations were made in Bury, St Edmunds, Suffolk
1183 - accusations were made in Bristol
1192 - accusations were made in Winchester
1244 - London Jews were accused of ritual murder

In 1247, Pope Innocent IV ordered a study into the charges brought against the Jews. The investigation found no evidence to justify their persecution.

The Jewish community was vindicated by four more Popes but accusations, trials and executions continued to rise.


But that ancient way of thinking even among most backward looking Polish Catholics is the relic of the past mentality.

If Poles are copying others, then they can hardly be quick off the mark.

There's a seven hundred year gap between the events you described, and, for example, the Kielce pogrom in 1946, which featured accusations of 'blood libel'.

Witch trials were all the rage in 17th century England, so maybe they'll catch on in Poland in another four hundred years or so.

The Christians prefer humility to supremacism of any kind.

For all those who exalt themselves will be humbled, and those who humble themselves will be exalted.

For now the latest craze is is to remain on the cutting edge of debauchery.that is to sleep with 100 000 men - every one a devil of a kind.

now they act like they are superior to Greeks, Portuguese, Spaniards etc.?

Considering Greece is falling apart and Spain is one of the few countries that has more anti-Semitism than Poland, I would say they are right in feeling superior.

There is neither Jew nor Greek, there is neither bond nor free, there is neither male nor female: for ye are all one in Christ Jesus.
