Antisemitism Is Being Coded Into Law In Poland

This is really alarming. Don't dismiss it because it's Poland and you don't live there. Don't forget what much of Poland did to their Jewish population not so long ago.

After Holocaust law, Poland moves to ban kosher slaughter

After the controversy created by the law banning people from accusing Poland of Holocaust atrocities committed by the Nazis, the country's ruling party has submitted a new bill restricting kosher slaughter and threatening anyone who violates the restrictions with up to four years in prison.

Okay hold up. Poland banned people from ACCUSING Poland of committing Holocaust atrocities?

I mean. Maybe we can talk about how much the state of Poland was complicit in the atrocities that did happen within its borders. But you banned people even saying it? Wow.

And then there's this law banning kosher slaughter. Not only does this make Poland essentially unlivable for many Jewish people, it's bullshit. Kosher slaughter is designed to be both very clean and minimize the suffering of the animal. That's. The. Entire. Point.

This is just a lazy way to ban being Jewish in Poland. And that is terrifying. This is happening again in the world. It keeps getting worse. I am so scared for Jewish people around the world. Please be safe. Please get to a safe place if you can, if that exists.
