Alas, left uncorrected, the ban on kosher slaughter in Poland could be another bleak portent for the Jewish future in Europe.

  1. Anti-Semitism start, when Jews feel well outside Israel.

  2. Cody Flecker says:

    How any Jew could even think of living in antisemitic Europe or Poland is beyond me. It furthers my thinking that Jews are simply insane when it comes to rational thinking.

  3. Sam Norte says:

    Jews really think they've got a right to live in every single country and dictate the laws to suite their needs. Yes, Poland does have a Jewish problem. The problem being that the parasites are in Poland.

  4. Beau Howard says:

    Of course they do. Wherever there's jews, there are problems with jews. usually attempts at undermining the government and the wishes of the indigenous peoples.

  5. Jonna Larsen says:

    Remember the Jews were driven out of more than a hundred countries. Some countries even twice. But they keep coming back. Even to Germany although they must know they are very much disliked after their fathers and grandfathers tried to deport all of them, only nobody dares to say it loud. But it is good that Jews have their own country now, so they are no longer forced to live between anti-Semites. These days Jews have a choice. About the slaughter problem; can't Jews just become vegetarians? That would be a good thing anyway, and save Co2.

  8. Do Jews EVER do anything but whine or rehash history that no one cares about anymore. Besides the 6 million number being quite dubious, Stalin and Mao together killed nearly 100 million. But the thought of millions less Satanic Jews in the world is quite compelling!

  9. Yechiel Baum says:

    To correct worng statements, the last time Jews were expelled from Poland was after WWII, during the reign of Gamulka who supported Nasser after his deaft in the Six Day war. Historically, defeatist stand together and just like Egypt who also ousted its Jews and plummeted to poverty, so did Poland.

    There are NO Jewish farmers in Poland. NO Jewish owned Slaughter houses in Poland. Only Polaks benefitting selling the meat to the jews in Poland and to Israel for financial rewards and gains thereby adding profits to Poland and their treasury. Best the Jews of Poland can do is to purchase Kosher foods and products ONLY from Jews, supporting the Jewish economy and have Rabi Shudrich focus on Jewish concerns such as saving the jewish cemetaries from destruction, bringing Jews back into the fold and supporting Jewish economy.

    The Poles do NOT refer to us as Jewish poles. but rather as Jews. My dad served in the Polish army only to be denounced to the NAzi's by a pole that my father was a Jew and systematiclaly beatened and put on to a train to the camps whereby he esacpaed onenroute. By Polish law, he was entitled to be given a weapon by the Polish partisans but his Judaism prevented them from obeying the law. Hence, since are NOT considered Jewish citizens, the schita laws does not apply to Jews so there is no problem. once a Jewish owned meat factory is establsihed in Poland, they can shecht in accordance to Polish jewish tradition. It is that simple!
