alt

Following the very serious events that took place during a rally of right-wing activists in Warsaw, Bnai Brith Europe, through its president Serge Dahan, condemns the anti-Semitic drift that has taken a new path unthinkable until now.


Some 60,000 people carrying Polish flags and throwing smoke bombs marked the Independence Day in an event that attracted extremists from Sweden, Hungary and Slovakia chanting slogans such as "Pure Poland, Poland free of Jews "," Jews out of Poland”


Despite the climate of hatred and violence, the Polish Foreign Minister said Saturday's meeting was "a great celebration of the Polish, different in their opinions, but united around the common values of freedom and loyalty to an independent homeland"


Israel called the rally in Warsaw "a dangerous march of extremism and racism elements"


Bnai Brith Europe urges the Polish authorities to take action now and before the last of the yellow lines are crossed, appropriate measures against the organizers of this meeting led by right-wing groups, by the national-radical camp, the national movement and Polish youth.


The hatred of the Jews must stop the acts of violence and barbarism against the Jews must stop. The future of a conception of Europe witch respect for human dignity which is today threatened


B'nai B'rith Europe calls on Polish public authorities to prohibit all racist and anti-Semitic events that directly attack Jews


B'nai B'rith Europe calls for the perpetrators and propagators of any anti-Semitic act or speech to be arrested and judged
