'We came here to feel safe. Now my children refuse to walk to school alone, just like they did in Paris,' French émigré says after twin attacks in Ra'anana.13:27 13.10.15 | 9 comments
Yes, let us take Poland as an example. When Solidarnosc stood up to the Communist regime, Poland resisted as a country, with a name, a government, albeit ruled by the despot Russians. The Russians were not demolishing homes, forcing the Poles to stand for hours in checkpoint lines, firing at Poles for any reason, etc. (the comparisons are obvious). However, when the Nazis were occupying Poland, murdering the citizens, occupying their homes, deporting them, then the Polish partisans were blowing up Germans, performing acts of sabotage, and in turn the Nazis were hanging nine Poles for every German killed by the partisans. Dire circumstances engender dire reactions.
