Eyal on Polish Anti-semitism

Download PDF for this date

The anti-Jewish drive in Poland is a proof that anti-Semitism can exist without Jews, Eli Eyal, head of the World Zionist Organization information department said in a communique circulated among Jewish communities overseas. He referred to recent publications in Poland associating Solidarity with “subversive Zionist elements.”

The number of Jews presently living in Poland is estimated at 3,000, half of them married to non-Jews, and the rest elderly people. “It is a tragic phenomenon to cast charges of subversion against these helpless people,” Eyal said.

He charged that anti-Semitism and anti-Zionism have become tools in the hands of the Communist regime to divert attention from the real issues.
