Country in Europe
Poland is an eastern European country on the Baltic Sea known for its medieval architecture and Jewish heritage
– this is how Google characterises the land of proud Polacks. For a Pole, this definition hurts more than the three partitions of his country. Why do they stop at Poland?, he’d cry out.
Why does Google describe England like this?:
Country of the United Kingdom
England, birthplace of Shakespeare and The Beatles
... instead of “England is a European country on an island in the North Sea, known for its Jamaican Rastas”?
I commiserate with you, my Polish friends. It is very demeaning to be known not for the deeds of your ancestors, nor for mighty sword of Jan Sobieski that saved Vienna for Christendom, nor for the star lore of Copernicus, neither for the gentle muse of Mickiewicz and Chopin, but for something quite marginal for your culture and history, at least as marginal as Rastafarians are for the Brits.
The Russians and the Germans partitioned your lands thrice, but they didn’t think your only claim to fame is that you were hospitable towards Jews. This very Jewish attitude is typical for America in our days, for the US has become more Jewish than Poland ever was. And they are repaid for your hospitality with a mean coin.
Jews lived in the Polish lands for centuries, and lived very well, until they moved to new pastures – to America, to Germany, to Russia, to Israel. My father was a Polish citizen, and he cherished his memories of the land and its folk, and so felt other Jews of his generation. However, organised Jewry had different ideas.
The conflict between the Jews and Poland began with anti-Polish publications in the US media a few years ago. The Jews began to goad Poland. They reminisced about Polish clashes with Jews in the 1930s and 1940s, not exactly a unique Polish story. Many nations have clashed with Jews, lately the people of Gaza.
The last anti-Jewish riot, or pogrom, in Europe took place in in England in 1947, not in Poland, and was caused not by some pathological, illogical, irrational hatred of the Other, but by the Jews’ heinous act: they murdered two English soldiers, hanged their bodies on a tree and booby-trapped these with a landmine. However, the Jews do not choose to recall those British riots, they are forever reciting Polish troubles.
They said the Nazi concentration camps were built in Poland because Poles sympathised with the Nazi plans to eliminate the Jews. More and more often they referred to “Polish concentration camps” (instead of Nazi concentration camps in Poland), heavily implying Polish complicity in the Holocaust. The Poles responded to this salvo of abuse by passing a law forbidding anyone of accusing them of collaboration with the Nazis under penalty of imprisonment. The Jews were furious and called for knowingly breaking the law by shouting “Polish Holocaust!”. (It is worth watching this short video in order to feel their fury).
There was a practical reason, as well as a discursive one. By putting pressure on the Poles, the Jewish organisations followed the blueprint they had utilised against the Swiss with great success. Although known Jewish assets in Swiss banks were quite small, the Swiss gave in under pressure and paid billions of dollars to the Jewish organisations. Now a similar extortion racket has been planned against Poland.
This was the practical reason, while the needs of their battle for discourse called upon the Jews to safeguard their copyright, i.e. to keep in their hands the authority to decide and rule what is the Holocaust and who is guilty of it. The Polish example could be followed by the Americans and the British who may become tired of being accused of failing to bomb the railways leading to concentration camps. Indeed Donald Trump already tried to speak of millions of non-Jewish “victims of the Holocaust”. Rebellious Poland had to be suppressed.
Organised Jewry called upon Poland to restore to them all the property that belonged to individual Jews in Poland before the WWII. Though Jews were a small minority, they were a very prosperous minority, and many Jews owned a lot of property. They owned it as private Polish citizens, naturally. In the Communist period, many Polish properties were nationalised, whatever their owner’s faith was, Jewish, Catholic or even Buddhist. However, the 1960 treaty between the United States and Poland solved this problem. Poland compensated American nationals whose assets had been nationalized by the Polish government and the United States indemnified Poland from any additional claims and compensation demands.
Now they have decided to re-open the case by claiming properties that belonged to Jewish owners who died leaving no heirs. If an owner dies intestate, his estate goes to the state. This is the basic rule all over the world, and Polish Jews are no exception. If a Polish citizen, a Jan or a Moses (or even an Ahmed) dies intestate, his property in Poland goes to Polish state. The Jews want to change it. They say intestate property of private Jewish Polish citizens should revert to Jewish ownership, actually to Jewish-American organisations.
These bodies have already pocketed billions of dollars’ worth of German funds; this money pays handsome salaries to Jewish officials; it builds Holocaust memorials and museums, and allows Jews to fight numerous legal cases strengthening their hegemony. Now they want to shake Poland down for a cool $300 billion, 60% of the country’s GNP. It will certainly allow many Jewish functionaries to live in a style to which they are accustomed.
The US supported this claim, and a few days ago, S. 447, the “Justice for Uncompensated Survivors Today (JUST) Act of 2017,” became law, as President Trump signed it after the House of Representatives and the Senate duly voted for it in bipartisan solidarity. Now the Poles can’t just disregard these claims. They have to transfer every asset that ever belonged to a Jew into the hands of American Jewish organisations.
If and when a similar law would be enforced in the US, American Jewish organisations would inherit from Chomsky and Unz, me and Gilad Atzmon, the Amazon and Soros Fund. This is patently crazy: just in a few years, Jewish organisations will become richer than Rothschild and Rockefeller ever were.
The Jewish organisations collecting the tribute are also very rich. They have a dirty history of fraud with dozens of convictions; they spend much more money on their own salaries than on needy survivors. Norman Finkelstein wrote a well-known book, The Holocaust Industry, full of strong critique and indignation, about the Holocaust Lords with their half-a-million-dollar-a-year salaries and great hotels to hold conferences.
I would prefer they’d spend all their ill-gotten wealth on their salaries and hotels, because they use whatever is left (and we are speaking of billions of dollars) to restore Jewry and to promote their narrative, to build a Holocaust Museum in every city, to give grants to painters, writers, film directors, media editors. They bribe whole communities. They keep the descendants of Jews together by scholarships, free schools, free meals. And they de-Emancipate the Jews.
The most important and the worst element of this scheme (or scam?) is not a financial one. It is the restoration of the feudal order, when Jews were subjects of Jewry, a quasi-state body spread over many lands. I wrote about it:
“The very existence of a corporate entity known as “the Jewish People” (or, Jewry, or The Jews) is frequently denied. Some two hundred years ago Jewry existed as unambiguously as France or the Church. Our ancestors were subjects of this extra-territorial state, an authoritarian semi-criminal order, run by rich men and Rabbis. Its leadership, called Kahal (Hebrew for Community) made the important decisions, and ordinary Jews followed their directions. The leadership could dispose with life and property of Jews, just like any feudal ruler. There was no freedom of opinion within the walls of the ghetto. A rebellious Jew could be punished by death. Came Emancipation, and the power of the Kahal was broken from inside and outside. The Jews were set free and became citizens of their respective countries.”
This freedom of the Jews didn’t last too long: now Jews are on the way to becoming subjects of Jewry, ruled by Jewish-American organisations. They want to retroactively turn all Jews into members of World Jewry, so that their property will remain in Jewish hands if they die intestate. This is a claim of a state, not of a church neither of a community or a diaspora.
Thus, above two Jewish polities, Israel and the US of A, a third polity rises, Jewry, a quasi-state, whose existence is often denied, but when it is a question of money, obfuscation is out of place. The US decided, by promulgating Act 447, that a Polish Jew has never been a citizen of Poland; he was a member of Jewry, and his property should revert to Jewry, not to the Goyish Polish state. This is quite an extraordinary claim; perhaps understandable in the Middle Ages, when Jewry formed a separate estate, but nowadays it is a recognition sign of the Jewish Messianic era.
This is the end of Enlightenment, and Jews, liberal or conservative, have been transformed from free persons and citizens of their countries into subjects of Jewry. This is done without Jewish consent. Ordinary or extraordinary Jews did not agree, didn’t vote, didn’t express their agreement in any way for this turn of events. I write these lines with Philip Roth’s recent demise on my mind. Jewry would collect his spiritual and material legacy – and that’s despite his last will to keep his burial free from any Jewish religious ceremony, despite the fact that he hated to be called “a Jewish writer,” insisting that he was an American writer.
It didn’t begin today – Germany already recognized Jewry (or the world Jews) as a subject of international law: “The Conference on Jewish Material Claims Against Germany, or Claims Conference, represents the World Jews in negotiating for compensation and restitution for victims of Nazi persecution and their heirs”. Now it has come to Poland, and afterwards, there is a list of forty countries they intend to flay, from Estonia to Morocco. They all will have to recognize that their Jewish citizens were, in effect, foreigners, members of a foreign body. Otherwise, they will find themselves on the black list of the US administration.
This is an ironic turn of events for Poland. Poland is the most pro-American and anti-Russian country in Europe. In Poland, there are American tanks and American bases, and American missile launchers; Poland is the gate to the East and the forward base of the Empire. In case of a hot war with Russia, Poland will be the most necessary link in the Western chain of command. The Poles even chopped off the old oaks of the primeval Białowieża Forest on the Belarus border to open the way eastwards for American tanks (they provided this or that other explanation). Jewish Lobby greed and the complacency of American political class may yet achieve what Putin’s efforts failed to do.
Or perhaps it won’t. The Poles are forever repeating the same costly mistake: allying with the West against Russia. Time after time again they have been betrayed by their Western allies and had to paid the price.
Everyone can be betrayed once, but Poland has been betrayed so many times that the Poles should check their settings. Poland has no future as the forward base against Moscow, but this understanding hasn’t seeped into the Poles’ mind yet.
The Jews continue with their offensive against Poland. Even a Polish memorial in New Jersey is to be removed, despite Poles’ objections. The Mayor of New Jersey called Polish Senate Speaker Stanislaw Karczewski a “known anti-Semite, white nationalist + holocaust denier” with “zero credibility” who “tries to rewrite history on their country’s role in a Holocaust.”
In polite society, it is acceptable to refer to the “Israel Lobby”; however, the JUST Law has nothing to do with Israel. The force successfully pushing for it, is the Jewish Lobby, plain and undeniable.
The Poland-fleecing law answers the old question, do US Imperial interests and those of the US Jewish Lobby coincide? Destroying Iraq and Syria and supporting Saudis was in Israeli interests, sure, but one could argue about whether it was in American interests or not. Now we have a rare clear-cut case where American Jewish Lobby acted against American “Imperial interests” and the whole of the American political establishment accepted the demand of the Lobby, turning the superpower into the mightiest enforcer for the Jews.
 They supported Napoleon’s invasion of Russia. They refused Russian pre-WWII offers of alliance against Hitler. Instead, in January 1934, they allied with Hitler against Russia, and in 1938, they joined in Hitler’s dismemberment of Czechoslovakia, blocking Russia’s plans to save the Czechs. Afterwards, they allied with England and France, but in any case against Russia. Even in August 1939, Poland was adamantagainst receiving any Russian help that could stop Hitler’s invasion.
England and France declared war on Hitler when he invaded Poland, but it was the Phoney War. They did nothing to save Poland. They bled the Poles at Monte Cassino. The West pushed the Poles to rise against Germans in 1944, hoping to re-establish anti-Russian Poland once again, but did nothing when the rebels bled to death. (Well, not exactly nothing: they complained why Russian soldiers do not want to die for them). In 1945, the Western Allies agreed with Russian dominion in Poland.
