Yesh Atid MK slams Poland’s ‘antisemitic’ WWII restitution law

Several Knesset members slam Poland’s approval of a law that will severely curb World War II-era restitution claims.

Yesh Atid MK Yorai Lahav-Hertzano denounces the legislation — which applies to both Jewish and non-Jewish claimants — as “antisemitic.”

“The insistence of the Poles on continuing to treat Jews — who they persecuted, murdered and robbed — as a nuisance that must be cleared away is shameful and shocking,” tweets Lahav-Hertzano.

He adds: “This is a blatant assault on truth, morality and justice, and we cannot ignore it, not only as Jews or Israelis, but as people.”
