.. It includes Catholic Church's World Youth Day, which will draw an anticipated 2.5 million visitors to Krakow, Poland, between July 26 and July 31.
Correction: it's a travel alert. Not warning. Whatever the significance of that is.

"In Poland, officials are preparing for possible jihadist attacks against the Catholic Church's World Youth Day, which is expected to draw 2.5 million to Krakow from July 26 to 31. Poland will impose border controls at all of its national borders from July 4 to August 2."

Poor attempt at racism.

Border controls will be reintroduced, as is normal during high profile meetings, such as during Euro 2012. Nothing to do with Muslims and everything to do with normal procedure. For what it's worth, the only actual attack committed this year in Poland was committed by a right wing Polish Catholic.

Korwin-Mikke lover, apparently.

But really, there's no point even making a fuss over these border controls - I know how they work in practice (they're not permanent, and not every car is stopped) and it's normal for big events. It's also good for the Straż Graniczna officers in Schengen areas to get some practice with border controls if they ever have to be reintroduced in an emergency.

It seems that Poland is very unprepared for a national disaster.
The Polish government should be more aggressive in prepping the citizens like Germany is doing.
