Poland Finds Poland the Innocent Victim of Jewish Death Camps

 

The Polish Holocaust Law is no longer a simple signature away from law; Polish President Andrzej Duda has autographed the legislation making it the law. Polish Prime Minister Mateusz Morawiecki has not objected giving the law his silent consent as he invited Israeli journalists so as to be allowed to explain to them how the law was righteous and the Polish completely innocent victims just as were the Jews under the Nazi occupation. What the Israeli journalists ended up witnessing were two simultaneous demonstrations urging Duda to sign the law which some compared to Germany in the 1930’s after Kristallnacht, the night of broken glass when the point of no return was crossed by the German people. The nationalist demonstration was the larger of the two and was punctuated by chants which included rants such as, “Take off (your) kippah (yarmulke in Polish), Sign the law!” “Enough Jewish lies!” “Jews try to rob Poland!” “Stop Jewish aggression in Poland!” Do any of these have a familiar sounding echo to you and remind you of previous times in numbers of places throughout history where the only difference was the name Poland changed to the nation in question? Such were the chants in Nazi Germany, Inquisition Spain, Purified France, Martin Luther’s Germany (not to pick on Germany), the Czar’s Russia, Mousseline’s Italy, Hadrian’s Rome, the Hellenists’ Greece, Pharos’ Egypt, Nebakanezzer’s Babylon, Haman’s Persia and on and on throughout history. Yes, we Jews remember these chants as they have always signaled it was time to grab your bags and get out of town as ignoring such threats has always proved foolish if not deadly.

 

We are more than willing to grant that many or at least some of those who supported this law are not anti-Semitic and are simply more upset with innocent Poles being tarnished by the Nazis and their horrific history. We wish to be optimistic that the main driving force of this law was to differentiate between the majority of the Polish people during World War II and their Nazi oppressors who victimized numerous Polish who fought against the Nazi presence. The problem arises when we consider the reports of such hateful rhetoric by the majority of the demonstrators and the seeming backing for this law seemingly arising from the anti-Semites. Let us state right up front that we do not believe that the average polish person is an anti-Semite or that any more than a minority hold anti-Semitic beliefs. Where the frightening truth invades our hopes was when referencing the Anti-Defamation League Global Anti-Semitism Survey shows some disturbing numbers for Poland. Their 2015 survey of Poland, the last time a full survey was conducted, shows that Poland has a population of approximately thirty-one-million and of those approximately eleven million hold anti-Semitic feelings which is thirty-seven percent. The survey has a breakdown by gender, age, and the percentages in answers to the survey questions themselves. The highest response was sixty-one percent agreement on the question “Jews still talk too much about what happened to them in the Holocaust.” At the other end, a mere fourteen percent responded agreement with the statement, “Jews are responsible for most of the world’s wars.” The high agreement with the first kind of explains partly the reactions and force behind the new law.

 

The Polish Holocaust Law outlaws blaming Poland as a nation for Holocaust crimes committed by Nazi Germany. This includes stating that such places as Auschwitz-Birkenau, Treblinka, Sobibor, Majdanek, Belzec and Chelmno as well as numerous camps built in Poland so that the prisoners could be worked to death out of the public eye; this policy was called Vernichtung durch Arbeit (annihilation through work), and large numbers of non-Jewish Poles were held in these camps which is one of the facts being pressed during the discussions over the Polish Holocaust Law (see map below). No longer may anyone refer to these camps as being Polish without facing fines and possible imprisonment. Exchanges by two Polish authors on a TV broadcast dealing with the new law were jesting when it was stated, “Jewish death camps” followed by the mocking question asking, “who actually did run the crematoria?” Even presumably joking, such language is beyond the pale. Once these phrases were aired on Poland Television, they were immediately picked up by numerous others, anti-Semites and others who simply believed that these were perfectly harmless jokes as they were permitted to be televised which give things an air of respectability. At the aforementioned nationalist rally, some of the speakers stated, “So my daughter would need to learn in her school that Poles killed Jews in Jedwabne, is not it scandalous?! Jedwabne lies, that baloney!” and “It all is about money. Jews would like to rob us of everything what we has build here after 1945.” and “Those who came here now under the red flags and in Israel’s interest, to attack Polish patriots.” These comments are counter to the records in history. Jedwabne was the location where three-hundred Jewish villagers burned alive by a group of their neighbors in Poland after gathering them in a barn for a meeting in 1941 after the war. These were former residents of Jedwabne who had survived the camps and ghettos and other efforts of the Nazis. Making matters even more serious, Jedwabne was just one as was Kielce Pogrom on July 4, 1946 where over twenty Jews were murdered by a mob which included many officials which became obvious when authorities indicted commander of the Kielce Office of the Security Service, Major Wladyslaw Sobczynski, and the Chief of Police, Colonel Wiktor Kuznicki, as well as his deputy, Major Kazimierz Gwiazdowicz; of the three, only Kuznicki received a one year sentence, while the other two were acquitted. Further information can be found about the Polish cities of Bial, Kielce, Krakow, Lublin, Lodz, Rzeszow and Warsaw in the PDF report “Patterns Of Anti-Jewish Violence In Poland, 1944-1946” by David Engel.

This law will also make references to these incidents as Polish illegal as the law will be enforced as a means of relegating all of Polish violence against the Jews forbidden speech. Everyone who has ever pointed to the Concentration Camps being in Poland knew and meant that these were built at the insistence of the Nazis, run by the Nazis, and the murdering was committed largely by the Nazis and the Polish were also victims of the war having had their nation invaded from both ends, one by the Nazis and the other by the Communists. This bred a great hatred of both the Nazis and the Communists in the Polish people, something which continued after World War II when Poland came under Communist occupation and rule. The catch is that there were a fair number who blamed the Jews for the Communist takeover of Poland after the war. By this law, making any reference to the location as an identifying characteristic of any of the Nazi Ghettos, Concentrations Camps and Murder Camps will be punishable by fines and even imprisonment. By fiat, the Polish government has made all the locations on the above map located in some alternate universe in a place called “Not Poland” and in this universe; it is evil to claim otherwise. This law applies to all whether polish or visitor. This has already cost Poland the tourism where Israeli high school students were brought to Poland and were given classes and lectures about the horrors of the Holocaust. As of now, references to the Holocaust as happening in these camps on Polish ground would place the teachers in Polish prison. These trips have already been suspended and are unlikely to ever be resumed. One can also bet that a great number of Jews worldwide will now avoid Poland believing it to be anti-Semitic or, at the very least, unwelcoming to Jews. The avoiding of Poland will be strongest amongst the Jews who lost their families in the camps, specifically the camps in Poland.

 

There is another application of this law which might come to be used in a political manner. The Polish might decide to also apply the law to any political individual who mentions in some way the relationship between Poland and the locations of the Exterminations and Work Concentration Camps and the Ghettos. Such references would more likely be made by Israeli politicians thus should an anti-Israel, anti-Zionist or especially an anti-Semitic leader come to power in Poland, they might attempt to use this law against Israeli politicians who made mention of the camps being located in Poland, and especially if they implied Polish participation in the construction or having turned over Jews to the Nazis and other forms of cooperation. We in Israel are very aware of those in Poland who bravely fought the Nazis and the Righteous Amongst the Nations from Poland who harbored and saved Jewish lives, but we also have painful reminders of those Polish who aided the Nazis in their efforts. Such a use of the law to indict foreigners under this law should they ever step within the borders of Poland will surely result in many deciding that a visit to Poland under any circumstance to unfavorably risky. This law will definitely drive a wedge between Poland and Israel if not others as well. If this law is ever applied to one who referenced Poland and the location of the Nazi camps and the treatment of the Jews, then Poland will become a place which many will find too dangerous to visit. This law will bring Poland only evil and bad times will lay ahead. The politicians who passed this law and President Andrzej Duda along with Prime Minister Mateusz Morawiecki will rue their complicity in this law as time passes. This is a dark day for Poland and does nothing to change the facts about the Concentration Camps and the Ghettos forced upon them by the Nazis. Still, there did exist some degree of Polish cooperation with the Nazi occupiers and that cannot be altered by or erased by or otherwise made different or to somehow disappear by passing a law making their mention illegal in Poland. If anything, this law reminds us of an old saying, “The lady doth protest too much, methinks.” which comes from Hamlet by Willian Shakespeare. In this case, we would have to say, The Poles doth protest too much, methinks.

Sick and Tired of the News Media Yet?

 

Listening to news, be it on television or radio, or reading the news, be it in major newspapers or on main Internet news, and you have entered an echo chamber equipped with time slipping capabilities. Should a police officer shoot a black suspect and the media is on that hard and heavy for the two weeks; the investigations takes six weeks, if there is a trial. When the officer is completely cleared by their department, a court case, the FBI and the Justice Department investigation, there is hardly a mouse squeak as it gets one or two reports often on the half hour and is forgotten. Let a white fraternity be accused of rape of a woman and the news media works to get them expelled, their fraternity banned nation wide, and the young men lives ruined as for them and any young man sharing a name with one of the “suspects” as their names will never ever be unlinked from a horrendous rape of a young woman purer than the driven snow. When no evidence can be found of sexual intercourse and despite five-thousand pictures on Facebook from the party not showing the young woman even attending, no matter, coincidence easily ignored, those men must pay for their crimes. When the police get involved and real investigators look into the facts and question all involved and other attendees and the young woman has her story examined and it starts changing to account for discrepancies and finally completely falls apart, the story slowly dies with almost no mention of the fact that the fraternity and the young men were falsely accused, just they were fortunate that more evidence was not discovered. These are remembrances from media lynching over the past five years or so from memory and we probably mixed and matched to make the point.

 

The media will not stop its safari to completely exculpate the left, women and minorities of all wrongdoing while performing a full condemnation of the right, men and whites (especially religious individuals or traditional institutions) of all perceived wrongdoings. Theirs is a slanted profession which has taken sides. This starts with their academia takeover of the social sciences, also called the soft sciences probably for their malleability to fit a prescribed line of thought. With this they control those who will become reporters by controlling journalism schools, who will become teachers through educations departments, who will run the social science agencies in the government thus forming the Deep State, and finally reaching the point of controlling who will receive law degrees by controlling the law schools. Of course, this will be denounced as nonsense and articles from the Washington Post quoting some research from the University of Chicago relating the complete lack of unfair practices in the social sciences at that University. Perhaps there will be a link to Google showing the number of articles which disclaim such theories and another showing all twelve results supporting them. Google has become the new authority on all facts; even Snopes likely will back that just for self-preservation. Proof might come from a Forbes Article about Snopes.com or the mention that Google is now employing Snopes and PolitiFact to verify their reporting, how long before these “fact-checkers become simply two more companies depending upon Google for their ultimate survival. It is claimed we could also receive the same fact-checking by meeting a stringent set of guidelines and likely pay a hefty fee, but we prefer to allow our readers to judge our worth and should they tell us of any errors, we will check and if wrong, admit, edit, and give them thanks in the comments and often the point of the correction if viable. We have had this happen twice if memory serves and when we have disagreed with alternate commentary, we post such comments and allow our readers to ferret out what they find to be the more accurate. Further, though we speak about news, we are more commentary than strictly news reporting. We do on occasion write articles which are instructions on subjects where we often give links where possible and on others many readers have included links often supportive of our descriptions and adding even more information for those desiring to dive in deeper. We are not the number one go-to place for search information, though we would not mind that, but really do not have the employees required for such a large and serious venture. We stick to articles and allow others to write lines of code, tried that once and found it too time consuming, protocol restrictive and too darn persnickety about exactness of order and spelling and without any easy to implement spellcheck.

 

We believe it is the lack of independent thinking in the news media, both sides, and that is one reason Beyond the Cusp has had a constantly growing readership and this has been in part because the news sources, especially on the Middle East about which we comment often, have become untrustworthy and their reporting is predicated on a specific imposed lack of free thought. The media, both ends, have often taken the side given them, hand-fed one might say, by government agencies and Internet mega-companies. Freedom of reporting has slowly died in the United States and been absent from Europe for quite a number of decades if not longer. The remainder of the world has almost never had a free media as the government and their news are one and the same which tends to mean that you are granted propaganda instead of facts. We tell you when we are giving you conjecture usually with the prefacing phrase like “We believe” or “We think” or “In our opinion” and then tell you our opinion. We, in our opinion, are kind of funny that way. When was the last time you felt an article you were reading in a newspaper should have been prefaced with such a phrase at least once if not often? Probably not all that long ago, and you were probably not reading an opinion blog or the editorial section but still on page A-1. The Charleston story was very much an example of such reporting where one could figure out which side the reporter supported by their description of the two sides. What was not seen was an honest description of the two side’s main adversaries which should have read as International Socialists as Communists vs National Socialists as Nazis (depicted from two sides in Charlotte images below). The references to World War II were inaccurate though they had chosen the correct war, the wrong front. The British, American, Canadian, Free French, Australian and other British Commonwealth soldiers were not represented at Charlotte except by some, if not many, of the police who were relegated to taking orders from their leading political entities be they the Charlotte Democrat Mayor Michael Signer or Virginia Democrat Governor Terry McAuliffe, as they did little to keep the two sides separated. The western front was not the correct front; it was closer to the eastern front with the Soviet Union against the Nazis and the two red flags representing the two sides. Two ideologies born in Germany at about the same time but one went east after being chased from Germany by the National Socialist German Workers’ Party, and there is nothing that a national socialist hates more than an international socialist, better known as Communists. These two ideologies worked well together when it came to dividing up Poland but their differences meant a showdown was inevitable ever since they clashed in the streets of Germany as each attempted to take control of the leftist voters, the socialist supporters against the capitalist Weimer Republic, a democracy. Socialists are also often statists who believe that the State rules absolutely, just one believes in the nation state while the other desires and internationalist state encompassing the entire globe. Well, they both desired that in the end, one wanted a world Soviet Empire the other wanted to rename the globe Germany and have its Thousand-Year Reich. In Charlotte, these old adversaries met again on the field of battle to decide which version of imperialist fascist socialist enterprise stands supreme. Both of these philosophies have no place as a majority opinion in American politics and the fact that the media is lavishing praise on either is a disgrace.

 

International Socialists as Communists vs National Socialists as Nazis

Just in case there is any doubt, we abhor both sides of the media as supporting either side in the disgrace which took place in Charlotte is an insult to Thomas Jefferson and the principles he outlined in the Declaration of Independence and to James Madison and the outlines he included in the Constitution and to all involved in the drafting of the Bill of Rights. Unfortunately, both the Republican and Democrat parties have drifted far from the principles of limited government and individual liberty and freedoms espoused by the Founding Fathers. The media has mostly also gone to the partisan hacking at one another forgetting the rights they are supposed to be defending and guarding with jealous pride. The media was not envisioned as a party supporting political contrivance used to expound along party line ideals and platforms. This is what has become of what was presumed to be the guardians of the people and the watchdogs over the politicians who were presumed to turn slimy as time progressed. The media was not supposed to climb into the political mud-pits with them. With the media forgetting and betraying their sacred trust, it is little wonder that the people have lost hope that they have any allies in their fight to take back their once great nations and to save their hopes for their children who they are watching, as they are indoctrinated rather than educated. What a short trip it is once the guardians become the deceivers. I think I would trust a talking tree, a raccoon, a green whore, a red tattooed vengeance torn hulk led by a petty criminal to be the guardians of my galaxy over the media of the so-called free world.

Our Worlds Are in a Mess and Clashing (Part II)

 

Link for Part I

 

Part II

 

Russia is another interesting problem. President Putin may as well declare himself Czar as the power flows to whatever position he holds at the moment. He is stuck in Syria defending two ports on the Mediterranean Sea which he knows are vital for Russia to have warm water ports capable of reaching the oceans. This was why he annexed the Crimea but that port had a difficulty, Turkey. With the annexation of the Crimea, Russia gained ownership of the Sevastopol Docks and Shipyards, the main docking for the Black Sea. The Black Sea is an oversized bathtub with one exit way leading to the Mediterranean Sea and the Atlantic Ocean which had to pass through the Bosphorus Strait and the Dardanelles, both of which are completely at the tender mercies of Turkey. Russia and Turkey have had less than wonderful relations since the Ottoman Empire, need we say more. Putin and Erdogan are two prima donnas who have clashed regularly and then settled into an uneasy peace only to butt heads again. This meant that passage through the Bosphorus Strait and the Dardanelles was not a guaranteed passage and thus the need for ports on the Mediterranean Sea. That placed Russia in Syria when Bashir al-Assad sort of fell from grace and fled to the west of Syria and his Alawite strongholds. These areas include the ports Russia so desperately needs, thus Russia supports Assad. Then there are the Kurds who deserve their own nation as they simply cleared their areas from Islamist terrorists and other freedom fighters, declared their area as for Kurds and Yazidis and held their ground not attempting to broaden their area of control satisfied with their corner of Syria and the northernmost regions of Iraq. Russia desires to beg off the Syrian civil war but also desires to retain these ports. This might suggest that an arrangement can be made for Bashir al-Assad to retain control of Syria in name and holding the west with Russia keeping her ports, the Kurds granted an area called Kurdistan which would include northeast Syria and northern Iraq, and the remainder be called East Syria and allow the Sunnis to control this area as long as they make peace with everyone else and rid themselves of any ties to terror. This would require one final step, the end of the Islamic State. Then the next decision is what to do with the southern two-thirds of Iraq of which half is all but owned by Iran?

This brings us to the Western World, largely the United States, Europe and the Anglophilic World which includes Canada, Australia and the rest of the English speaking Western World. The problem with the West is it has an illness which could be referred to as self-aggrandizement while reproducing towards extinction. The entire Western World only has one nation where it has a reproductive rate above replacement level, and that requires considering Israel a part of Europe as does the United Nations. Europe is the owner of the worst of these situations (see graph below). Turkey almost meets replacement rate but is more a part of the Middle East than Europe. This is the main reason why the European nations have opened their borders to “refugees” in the hope they will provide the workers required to pay the taxes to support their aging populations. This tactic will fail and fail utterly as those they are importing mostly desire to take power in Europe and take Europeans for everything they are worth to support their failing economies back home. Europe is importing people with either education with the desire to destroy Europe while making it into another subjugated Islamic held population of Dhimmis to be converted should they live long enough or uneducated and willing to be the cannon fodder for these educated elites. Europe is in a war and is importing their enemy’s soldiers and paying their way once they arrive. The people they are allowing to flood over their borders are incapable of operating in the technologically advanced working world which exists in Europe today and this will ultimately take Europe backwards at least two, three, ten centuries once Islam has taken control. This Islamization is taking place largely in Western Europe as many in Eastern Europe are just recovering from their existence of oppression under the Warsaw Pact leadership which was a slave to Russia, then called the Soviet Union. These nations just recovered their freedom and will take a while, but with some assistance will become the new Byzantine Empire; and the Western Roman states of France, Germany and Spain will fall to Islam. History may not actually repeat itself, but if one would step back and take a skewed look, it sure does rhyme.

 

European Reproductive Rates

 

So, we are left with the United States and Eastern Europe and possibly the Anglophilic World which will include Britain as the United States fifty-first state, or some reasonable facsimile thereof. The United States has an advantage that her “refugees” will mostly come from south of the border and bring a Christian ethic with them. Many are far more religious than the average coastal citizen of the United States happens to be. The heartlands of the United States still hold tenuously to religion for the meantime but as the central cities grow, the religious will become a minority even in these areas. From what can be figured, city life first robs one of the ability to do for themselves such that if something breaks, they need to call somebody to repair anything. On the farm, you usually cannot wait four or five hours, let alone a day or two, without things functioning, so if it breaks, you fix it or perform something which resembles fixing it. Either way, the item will be being used again in as short a time as possible. The south of the border may press the United States to become bilingual and have a second official language of Spanish, but it could be far worse and one need only look to Western Europe to see that worse. There is something which would make both the United States and the most sickly parts of Europe recover their lost mojo, and that was part of President Trump’s speech in Poland. The mainstream media mocked the speech as being racist and homophobic and a laundry list of other leftist complaints, but what they cannot argue is that it provided exactly the bromide required from the West for it to survive, a return to religion, Hashem, and family and by family he was talking about children and having sufficient children to grow the economy and population.

 

The illness of the West is the over leftism which has taken hold of much of the political body, the media, education, entertainment and too much of what passes for thinking. The latest is a call again from the ecological world police for people to stop having babies, as this will repair the world. Sitting in their megalopolis, they claim there is no more room and that people need to thin the herd. They really should get outside their little box and see the countryside or drive across Nebraska and then tell us there is no room. Ask the Russians if they are running out of room or even the Chinese who mostly reside in less than twenty percent of the available land. Even in Europe, there exist wide-open spaces which remain pristine wildernesses. The main objective of the leftists is the destruction of Western Civilization which they view as a historic mistake and along with Western Civilization, they want an end to the Judeo-Christian ethics and morality. They desire to build their hedonistic utopia upon the ashes of Western Civilization and have been working in this direction for years. The first attempt was with the Nazis and then the Communists and now it is the multiculturalists and environmentalists and a whole list of “ists” capped off with the Islamists who the leftists believe they will co-opt Islam once the West has been destroyed and the Jews and Christians removed from the human body. Hitler stated his disdain for Jew and Christian alike and blamed them for morality and conscience and swore to rid the world of both (see video below). This is what drew the leftists such as Charles Lindbergh, Henry Ford, George Bernard Shaw, Francis Crick, Breckinridge Long, Francis Galton, Alexis Carrel and the rest of the elitist eugenicists.

 

 

They are completely unaware that they will be amongst the first people Islamists will remove from the gene pool, as they believe everything which is an anathema to a religious Muslim. They top the lists of who deserves to be sent directly to the hell-fire, do not pass go, do not collect anything. They do not even rate as Dhimmis as that would imply a protected status but the leftists would be seen as idolaters or worse, atheists. Islam also uses eugenics but uses belief and surrender to the elite leaders of Islam as the measure of worth. Not a Muslim, then at best you can be a kept person allowed by the grace of your Islamist betters to continue and share air with them. But you must give up your seat to a Muslim, never walk on the same sidewalk as the gutters will do for you, and forget having a say in court, you have nothing to add and countering a Muslim is punishable by death. Any person permitted in an Islamic society who is not a follower of Islam and has not surrendered their minds and wills to Islam is considered a Dhimmi and thus has accepted and admitted to their inferiority. Sure, you can refuse Dhimmi status but then the punishment would be immediate and brutal, you would be put to death as an unbeliever who refused to acknowledge their betters and thus an insult to Allah and Islam, there is no worse crime unless you happen to be a Jew; being a Jew is the worst crime. For examples simply look around the Islamic world and any place where Islam borders Christianity, as in Africa as noted in Part I yesterday, and you will find strife, terrorism, bombings and some form of warfare and this includes much of Europe and Israel. What you will see inside Islamic nations with any sizeable Christians is their slow erasure through whatever means prove necessary. One might then question our proposed concept that being a Jew was the worst criminal outrage. It is and these nations where the Christians are being brutalized; one, if they check, will find no or virtually no Jews as they have already been dealt with and are no longer any means a threat as their numbers have been depleted to where they will crease to be, if they have not already. This is what awaits those countries importing Islam into their bosom believing they will adapt to Western Civility, do not hold your breath, use it freely while you are allowed, it will be remedied the only way Islam knows how and there is nothing one can do when their leaders surrendered to Islam already in exchange for wearing their chains lightly. Fortunately, United States Founding Father and patriot stated this in reference to those who did not feel the weight of the British yoke as too much to bear, he gave them final advice as to his view of their love for the chains of servitude, so allow us to close with a quote from our friend of freedom, Samuel Adams.

“If ye love wealth better than liberty, the tranquility of servitude better than the animating contest of freedom, go home from us in peace. We ask not your counsels or arms. Crouch down and lick the hands which feed you. May your chains set lightly upon you, and may posterity forget that ye were our countrymen.”
