The Only Winners in the Poland / Israel Dispute are their Common Enemies

The Cur­rent dis­pute between Poland and Israel over the his­tory of the Nazi Occu­pa­tion of Poland dur­ing World War two is one of the most fool­ish things I’ve seen two coun­tries do in a long time.

It not only serves the pur­pose of their com­mon ene­mies, of which there are many, to foment trou­ble between com­mon friends made to take sides but clouds a fact so obvi­ous that it’s almost embar­rass­ing to have to say it:

Poland and Israel are nat­ural allies.

Think about how many things Poland & Israel have in common:

Both Poland and Israel are deal­ing with a left that berates them for defend­ing their board­ers.
Both Poland and Israel have forcibly made stands against Islamic Ter­ror
Both Poland and Israel are threat­ened by Russ­ian Allies
Both Poland and Israel and have been invaded by either the Rus­sians or their allies dur­ing their coun­tries lives.
Both Poland and Israel have found them­selves in long­shot wars against mul­ti­ple ene­mies in the last cen­tury.
Both Poland and Israel have minori­ties (Russ­ian & Arab) within their bor­ders that are nat­ural allies of their ene­mies.
Both Poland and Israel have his­tor­i­cally had their coun­tries over­run con­quered, and wiped off the map and know what is to lose their homeland

Finally

Both Poland and Israel are strongly pro-​america, strong allies and part of United States Defen­sive Planning.

That’s why this dis­pute over his­tory is not only dan­ger­ous but plays right into the hands of those who today, not 30, or 50 or 75 years ago directly threaten both Poland and Israel.

No coun­try likes to be the sub­ject of men­dac­ity and to state that the Pol­ish State was com­plicit in the Holo­caust, when it was over­run by BOTH the Nazi’s and the Sovi­ets in WW2 and fur­ther­more was sub­ject of an armed occu­pa­tion that didn’t end until 1992 (a full 44 years after the state of Israel was estab­lished) is not only the height of absur­dity but a legit­i­mate insult. Israel who has been the sub­ject of inter­na­tional blood libels can appre­ci­ate that

At the same time to deny that, like in every coun­try that the Nazi’s occu­pied, there were Pol­ish col­lab­o­ra­tors both will­ing and unwill­ing who aided Nazi attempts to exter­mi­nate the Jew­ish race, or to deny any exis­tence of anti­semitism, either cur­rent or past, on the part of Pol­ish nation­als is also hog­wash. Pols who had to deal with 40 years of occu­pa­tion as a Russ­ian satel­lite and force fed pro­pa­ganda in an attempt to white­wash their his­tory can appre­ci­ate that.

Now I’m a free speech guy and I think Poland is mak­ing a mis­take with this law tar­get­ing speech, even libelous speech against their gov­ern­ment. It’s much too easy for such a law to be abused, fur­ther if you can ban one type of speech you can ban another. If a per­son chooses to make an ass of him­self by say­ing out­ra­geous things I say let that per­son freely do so and let oth­ers freely call out such peo­ple for the liars and asses they are. This is some­thing Israel has to deal with all the time.

So in the inter­est in unit­ing these national allies, both of whom I admire, may I humbly sug­gest the fol­low­ing joined dec­la­ra­tion by the Pol­ish and the Jew­ish states:

We the states of Israel and Poland Jointly Affirm the Following:

That both Jew­ish peo­ple and Pol­ish peo­ple were vic­tims of the 2nd World War

That the Pol­ish State bears no respon­si­bil­ity for the atroc­i­ties of the Holo­caust and any attempt to declare it so is a base lie

That any attempt to deny the Holo­caust, or to deny that some indi­vid­u­als from occu­pied coun­tries, includ­ing Poland, col­lab­o­rated with Nazi attempts to destroy Euro­pean Jewry is also a base lie.

That the scourge of anti­semitism, both in the past and its cur­rent resur­gence, both in the Arab world and within Europe par­tic­u­larly among Islamic migrants is an inter­na­tional disgrace.

Poland and Israel both not only con­demn anti­semitism but com­mit them­selves as nations to oppos­ing its spread.

The states of Poland and Israel both have the right to exist, secure within their own bor­ders and have the right and oblig­a­tion to pro­tect and secure those board­ers for the sake of their people.

That Israel com­mits itself to the pro­tec­tion of and the free access to sites in the Holy Land that are con­sid­ered sacred not only to the Pol­ish Peo­ple but to Chris­tians world­wide moved by the love of God and the desire to serve him.

That Poland com­mits itself to the pro­tec­tion of and the free access to sites in Poland that are con­sid­ered sacred not only to Jews but to those world­wide who wish pre­serve the mem­ory of those who the Nazis attempted to exter­mi­nate and to unite in the cry of “Never Again!”

Finally both Poland and Israel both affirm their com­mit­ment to fight the war against inter­na­tional ter­ror­ism and, when pos­si­ble coop­er­ate to bring the scourges of ISIS and Al Qaeda and all ter­ror­ist who would tar­get the inno­cent to their knees.

I can think of no bet­ter way to not only defuse this cri­sis but to send a mes­sage to Poland’s and Israel’s com­mon ene­mies that while like all friends there might be occa­sional dis­agree­ments between the two, they will stand united against the com­mon ene­mies seek­ing to bring them both down.

The Current dispute between Poland and Israel over the history of the Nazi Occupation of Poland during World War two is one of the most foolish things I’ve seen two countries do in a long time.

It not only serves the purpose of their common enemies, of which there are many, to foment trouble between common friends made to take sides but clouds a fact so obvious that it’s almost embarrassing to have to say it:

Poland and Israel are natural allies.

Think about how many things Poland & Israel have in common:

Both Poland and Israel are dealing with a left that berates them for defending their boarders.
Both Poland and Israel have forcibly made stands against Islamic Terror
Both Poland and Israel are threatened  by Russian Allies
Both Poland and Israel and have been invaded by either the Russians or their allies during their countries lives.
Both Poland and Israel have found themselves in longshot wars against multiple enemies in the last century.
Both Poland and Israel have minorities (Russian & Arab) within their borders that are natural allies of their enemies.
Both Poland and Israel have historically had their countries overrun conquered, and wiped off the map and know what is to lose their homeland

Finally

Both Poland and Israel are strongly pro-america, strong allies and part of United States Defensive Planning.

That’s why this dispute over history is not only dangerous but plays right into the hands of those who today, not 30, or 50 or 75 years ago directly threaten both Poland and Israel.

No country likes to be the subject of mendacity and to state that the Polish State was complicit in the Holocaust, when it was overrun by BOTH the Nazi’s and the Soviets in WW2 and  furthermore was subject of an armed occupation that didn’t end until 1992 (a full 44 years after the state of Israel was established) is not only the height of absurdity but a legitimate insult. Israel who has been the subject of international blood libels can appreciate that

At the same time to deny that, like in every country that the Nazi’s occupied, there were Polish collaborators both willing and unwilling who aided Nazi attempts to exterminate the Jewish race, or to deny any existence of antisemitism, either current or past, on the part of Polish nationals is also hogwash. Pols who had to deal with 40 years of occupation as a Russian satellite and force fed propaganda in an attempt to whitewash their history can appreciate that.

Now I’m a free speech guy and I think Poland is making a mistake with this law targeting speech, even libelous speech against their government. It’s much too easy for such a law to be abused, further if you can ban one type of speech you can ban another. If a person chooses to make an ass of himself by saying outrageous things I say let that person freely do so and let others freely call out such people for the liars and asses they are. This is something Israel has to deal with all the time.

So in the interest in uniting these national allies, both of whom I admire, may I humbly suggest the following joined declaration by the Polish and the Jewish states:

We the states of Israel and Poland Jointly Affirm the Following:

That both Jewish people and Polish people were victims of the 2nd World War

That the Polish State bears no responsibility for the atrocities of the Holocaust and any attempt to declare it so is a base lie

That any attempt to deny the Holocaust, or to deny that some individuals from occupied countries, including Poland, collaborated with Nazi attempts to destroy European Jewry is also a base lie.

That the scourge of antisemitism, both in the past and its current resurgence, both in the Arab world and within Europe particularly among Islamic migrants  is an international disgrace.

Poland and Israel both not only condemn antisemitism but commit themselves  as nations to opposing its spread.

The states of Poland and Israel both have the right to exist, secure within their own borders and have the right and obligation to protect and secure those boarders for the sake of their people.

That Israel commits itself to the protection of and the free access to sites in the Holy Land that are considered sacred not only to the Polish People but to Christians worldwide moved by the love of God and the desire to serve him.

That Poland commits itself to the protection of and the free access to sites in Poland that are considered sacred not only to Jews but to those worldwide who wish preserve the memory of those who the Nazis attempted to exterminate and to unite in the cry of “Never Again!”

Finally both Poland and Israel both affirm their commitment to fight the war against international terrorism and, when possible cooperate to bring the scourges of ISIS and Al Qaeda and all terrorist who would target the innocent to their knees.

I can think of no better way to not only defuse this crisis but to send a message to Poland’s and Israel’s common enemies that while like all friends there might be occasional disagreements between the two, they will stand united against the common enemies seeking to bring them both down.
