    I'm sorry for you, I really am. But don't let the hatred cover your mind so much. Germans killed part of my family, sent rest of them to concentration camps, so I somewhat know how you feel. War brings evil and destroys everything-cities, communities, people. Germans brought this disease with them, you must not forget this.It's true, anti-Semitism still lives in Poland, like in any other country in Europe, mostly among low-educated people, under influence of radical priests or few quasi-nazi degenerate politicians. And it's not underground, you can see it sometimes on the walls or internet. But it disappears quickly, because we don't want it, and feel ashamed. It's a pity, that on your news all I can find is anti-Semitism in the articles regarding Poland. You hear only about extremes, and not about many Jews leaving in Poland life like any other, doing business. Don't be ignorant, look for jewish communities here. All I can say about this latest kosher slaughtering - it has NOTHING to do with anti-Semitism, belive me or not- people here are against killing animals in this way, it's about animal rights to die unconscious. This law exists in many european countries, not Poland only. You can still slaughter animals in kosher way, but only for your own local religic community only. This hutzpah is all about money, and someone tries to pin an anti-Semitic sticker on it. Don't let them fool you and me.

Shimon Attal.
For French teen studying in Israel, it's all about being a Jew among Jews

Arrivals / Departures: Anti-Semitism in France is certainly not the reason why this teen chose to come to Israel; an Israeli whose relatives perished in the Holocaust finds living in Berlin 'perfectly fine.'
