Racism: a social disease

I am worried after reading the "Stop Syjionizmowi," published in one of the Polish websites, not in English:

http://stopsyjonizmowi.wordpress.com...

I did not read the well-known forgery: "Protocol of Elders of Zion," fabricated over a hundred years ago in Tsarist Russia. But this Polish post is probably more nonsensical and more poisonous.

The author writes, for instance, "the greatest criminals, murderers and traitors in history were mostly Jews (Lenin, Stalin, Hitler, Dzerzhinsky)." This statement is false: none of them was a Jew. Also false is the claim that "The Jewish religion is not ... based on the Old Testament." The article is full of such nonsense; I think that the author knows this very well. But I have no desire to argue with him. This kind of propaganda is very dangerous; it may lead, under some conditions, to a new wave of massive tragedies.

Who should criticize and expose authors of such articles? I do not think that this should be done by Jews. Our (Jewish) participation in the fight against potential murderers should be reduced to criticism of anti-Polish statements made by some Jews. And our day-to-day behavior should demonstrate that we are not liars, thieves and murderers, as claimed in the slanderous article.

At the forefront of the struggle with Polish anti-Semitism should be Poles - right wing, left wing, theists, atheists, scientists, and ordinary people. Why do I think so? Because I know that such struggle can be very effective. Passivity in the face of racism makes us morally responsible for what may take place in the future. Such passivity is also an insult to our national honors. I often think about this when I read our common Golden Rule: "Do to others as you would have them do to you."

It is a testimony based on a diary kept between 1946 and 2004 (in the USSR, Poland, France and the USA).

The more people know about proletarian dictatorship the less likely will we experience is. Please share the link with those who might be interested, especially with youn

I agree that if what was posted on that website is true then this person should not even be taken seriously, as condemnation would just draw them more undeserved attention. My problem is that unless Jews fight against racism (physically if needed), why do you expect others to do it for you? Other people should fight racism, but if the Jews aren't fighting against it themselves, no one will be willing to follow them.

I take that as a Polish, the persistance of anti semitism in a country that suffered so much for it must be painful. But what country can honestly say to have learned from past mistakes and abandon them for good? Is the US of today color blind, 150 years after the Civil war? Have Christians and Muslims learned to live in peace, ten centuries after the Crusades? Has the rest of Europe completely abandoned anti semitism?

We really haven't learned much. Of course it still hurts when people like you expose these disgusting haters.
