LONDON (May. 25)
Poland’s recent commemoration of the Warsaw Ghetto uprising, attended by world Jewish leaders, has been bitterly attacked by the Iraqi regime. Al-Jumhuriyah, the official Baghdad daily, yesterday accused Poland of submitting to the Western campaign accusing Poland of “participating with the Nazis in extermination of the Jews.”
Submission to this “imperialist-Zionist pressure,” the paper wrote, was a deviation from Polish-Arab friendship and raised the question of whether this marked the beginning of a series of similar events. Poland’s change of position came at a time “when Zionism is being universally condemned as a racist and fascist movement,” the paper added.
