Poland pulls out of Israel summit in row over WW2 role

Poland pulls out of Israel summit in row over WW2 role”

Prime Minister Mateusz Morawiecki decided earlier to call off his visit to Israel, with Foreign Minister Jacek Czaputowicz to go instead.

Israel later clarified that he had not been talking about the Polish nation.

"Three PMs are arriving will hold meetings with (Israel's) PM", Emmanuel Nahshon, spokesman for Israel's Foreign Ministry, said in a text message.

Polish officials may cancel their planned trip to Israel, the head of the prime minister's office, Michal Dworczyk, said on Monday after media reported remarks by Israel's prime minister suggesting Polish complicity in the Holocaust.

Vatican defrocks former U.S. cardinal McCarrick over sex abuse
Several men then said McCarrick forced them into sex at a beach house in New Jersey while they were studying for the priesthood. The alleged abuses may have taken place too long ago for criminal charges to be filed because of the statute of limitations.

The Visegrad Group of four central European countries have cancelled their meeting in Israel after Poland pulled out in protest against an Israeli minister's comments about alleged Polish collaboration during the Holocaust.

Polish-American historian Jan T. Gross triggered shock in Poland in 2001 with his book "Neighbours", in which he revealed that in 1941 during the Nazi German occupation, several hundred Jews were massacred by their Polish neighbours in the northeastern town of Jedwabne.

A spokesman for the Israeli prime minister, who was in Warsaw for a US -sponsored Middle East conference, said Netanyahu had been misquoted by The Jerusalem Post, which issued a corrected story. The Polish government first summoned the Israeli ambassador on Friday but said it was not satisfied with the explanation of the Israeli leader being quoted incorrectly.

Tomasz Lis, the editor of the Polish edition of Newsweek and a critic of the government, said Morawiecki obviously bowed out because with a general election later this year, the government "has to think about the far-right and anti-Semitic electorate". "It is obvious. We will not forget, and we will not forgive".

Along with his agent Patrick Williams, Son was reunited with former Tottenham team-mate Kevin Wimmer. It's going well so far, but we have just got to take our time with it and make sure we get it right.

Yaakov Katz, the Jerusalem Post's editor, told Reuters the account in his newspaper had used the term "Polish nation", but not in a direct quote, and the story was swiftly amended "to have only the quote that Netanyahu said". Collaborated with the Nazis. As (former prime minister) Yitzhak Shamir said - his father was murdered by Poles - he said that from his point of view they suckled anti-Semitism with their mothers' milk. Unlike other countries occupied by Germany, Poland did not have collaborationist government at the time.

Many Poles still refuse to accept research showing thousands participated in the Holocaust in addition to the thousands who risked their lives to help the Jews.

At present, it is legally prohibited in Poland to in any way accuse the state of the genocide of Jews that took place across Europe by the Nazis during World War II.
