Foreign Minister Yair Lapid condemns an antisemitic event in Poland and demands action from local officials.
“The horrific antisemitic event in Poland reminds every Jew in the world of the powerful hatred and danger in the world if it is not quickly cut short, without compromise.”
“The unequivocal condemnation of officials in Poland is important and essential. I welcome and expect the Polish government to take a firm stand against the people that took part in this shocking show of hatred.”
At the Thursday event in the city of Kalisz, Polish nationalists shouted “death to Jews” as they burned a book representing a historic pact protecting the rights of Poland’s Jews.
