Disinfo: Poland is a country which does not want to condemn anti-Semitism

Summary

Polish President Andrzej Duda’s decision to withdraw from the World Holocaust Forum in Jerusalem confirms that Poland is a country which does not want to condemn anti-Semitism.

Disproof

Recurring pro-Kremlin disinformation narrative about Poland’s anti-Semitism.

Duda's announced that he would not participate in the 5th Holocaust Forum in Jerusalem, scheduled for the 23rd of January in Yad Vashem Institute in Israel because the organisers did not invite him to speak at the event, while the Russian president would.

Błażej Spychalski, a spokesman for Duda, told Polish news outlets that “a situation in which the president of Poland will sit and listen to the false words of President Putin without being able to reply is unacceptable”.

The Polish president will speak on the 27th of January at the Auschwitz Museum, at a ceremony marking the anniversary of the liberation of the camp.

Poland’s largest Jewish community organization expressed its support for Polish President Andrzej Duda’s decision to withdraw from a major Holocaust memorial event in Jerusalem. Artur Hofman, chairman of the Social and Cultural Association of Jews in Poland, the largest Jewish organization in the country, said in an interview that “the Jewish community in Poland and all Jewish organizations” support Duda’s decision. Hofman also emphasized that Israelis know that Poles were not complicit in the Holocaust. He called the Russian attempt to blame Poles for cooperation with Hitler “a provocation.”

Trump administration’s assassination of General Soleimani will trigger civil war in the United States

The Trump administration – which has fallen under the control of globalist élites that are fighting for the survival of unipolarism – assassinated General Soleimani, a symbol of multipolarism, without taking account of the consequences, of the risk of provoking war, of the protests of the US’s counterparts.  By ordering the assassination of General Soleimani Trump has condemned the US to the death penalty.

The American people, by voting for Trump, had voted against the continuation of the Bush/Obama unipolar policies and for the peaceful transition to a multipolar world.  The Trump administration, however,  has now  been hijacked by the aggressive and increasingly irrational  globalist élite.

The American people are therefore forced to turn their backs on the US government, which no longer expresses the will of the people.  Legal methods of political struggle in the US  are no longer possible. The assassination of General Soleimani will trigger the beginning of a real civil war in the United States.

Disproof

No evidence is provided for the article’s claims. Conspiracy theory.

Recurring pro-Kremlin disinformation narrative about an imminent US civil war and/or massive social upheaval and state collapse in the US this time supposedly linked to the killing of Soleimani.

Poland and Baltic states distort the truth about WWII

Warsaw declared the USSR responsible for starting WWII together with Hitler’s Germany, while the Baltic states constantly remind the public that the USSR allegedly occupied their territories instead of liberating them. These statements have no historical basis and are made only out of political ambition.

Disproof

Recurring pro-Kremlin disinformation narrative about the WWII and Molotov-Ribbentrop Pact. See other disinformation cases of historical revisionism.

On the 23rd of August 1939, the Soviet Union and Nazi Germany signed a non-aggression (Molotov-Ribbentrop) pact, whose secret protocols divided the territories belonging to Poland, Lithuania, Latvia, Estonia, Finland and Romania into Soviet and Nazi spheres of influence.

Neo-Nazism flourishes in the European Union

Neo-Nazism flourishes in the EU. Every year, the EU abstains in the UN General Assembly when Russia submits a resolution on the inadmissibility of the glorification of Nazism and the revival of all forms of hateful ideology. The Americans and Ukrainians vote against it too, which is also not surprising. The Americans simply do not want to limit themselves to anything, and the Ukrainians, probably, are unable to resist the Neo-Nazi radicals.

Disproof

Recurring pro-Kremlin disinformation narrative about Nazis in the EU, which has been repeatedly debunked (see here). Also see earlier disinformation cases alleging that the US and EU countries are Russophobic, fascist and Nazi regimes and that the EU continues the aggressive policies of Nazi Germany.

On 18 December 2019, the UN General Assembly adopted a draft resolution on “Combating glorification of Nazism, neo‑Nazism and other practices that contribute to fueling contemporary forms of racism, racial discrimination, xenophobia and related intolerance” (document A/C.3/74/L.62) by a recorded vote of 133 in favour to 2 against (Ukraine, United States), with 52 abstentions.
