Poland: Anti-Semite appointed education minister
Israeli Foreign Ministry weighing individual boycott on Roman Giertych, a Polish anti-Semite nationalist who was appointed Poland's vice premier and education minister; Giertych to be responsible for Holocaust awareness, fighting anti-Semitism

The Israeli Foreign Ministry is considering imposing an individual boycott on Roman Giertych, a Polish anti-Semite nationalist who was appointed Poland's vice premier and Education Minister.

 

Recently the Polish Families League party, headed by Giertych joined the Polish coalition. As Education Minister, Giertych will be responsible for increasing awareness of the Holocaust, fighting anti-Semitism and making arrangements for visits by Israeli students to Nazi death camps in Poland.

 

The Polish Families League (PFL) is a marginal Catholic-nationalist party that presents itself as the political and ideological heir of the large anti-Jewish party that operated in Poland between the two world wars. The Polish gay and lesbian community will also face a tough battle as a result of the new coalition with the PFL.

 

An official in Poland said in response to the appointment, "Poland is a very friendly country, but Israel can not remain indifferent."
