Polish Holocaust Bill – Israel Outraged as Polish PM Speaks of ‘Jewish Perpetrators’

Israeli Prime Minister Benjamin Netanyahu offered sharp criticism of his Polish counterpart after Polish PM Mateusz Morawiecki had remarked yesterday, at the press briefing after a Munich Security Conference in Germany, that his country’s controversial Holocaust Bill was legit as there were also ‘Jewish Perpetrators’ during WWII.

Mr. Netanyahu said the Polish government’s stance on this issue was “outrageous” and it simply showed “an inability to understand history.”

In essence, Polish PM Mr. Morawiecki said: "It's extremely important to first understand that, of course, it's not going to be punishable, not going to be seen as criminal to say that there were Polish perpetrators - as there were Jewish perpetrators, as there were Russian perpetrators, as there were Ukrainian, not only German perpetrators."

The Polish head of state gave this in response to an Israeli journalist who asked if anyone who said there were Polish collaborators in the Holocaust would be considered a criminal in Poland under the new law, as some have come to understand it.

The Polish Holocaust bill, which is highly controversial, states that: "whoever accuses, publicly and against the facts, the Polish nation, or the Polish state, of being responsible or complicit in the Nazi crimes committed by the Third German Reich… shall be subject to a fine or a penalty of imprisonment of up to three years".

It is what it is. Jewish people do not walk on water. Jewish people do have a disproportionate influence when considering the stats. The secret is out. German Jews took part in the round up and imprisonment of Jewish people after the declaration of international boycott on German-made products and it was HEADLINE NEWS. Martyrs R Us = The eat their own to distract.

Poland was a captured and occupied by Russia and Nazi Germany from 1939 to 1945.

The very time frame that these horrific murders and typhus deaths occurred, a Poland did not even exist. Thus all captured Jewish Wealth was sucked up by the USSR and NAZI Germany, not a Poland that did not even exist

Then from from 1946-1993 Poland was a occupied country under USSR rule.

Foreign Rule ended only after the USSR military Forces left Polish soil in 1993.
