Swastikas and anti-Polish slogans were found sprayed on Sunday at the entrance to the Polish embassy in Tel Aviv. Israel Police said an investigation has been launched.
The graffiti was sprayed a day after Polish Prime Minister Mateusz Morawiecki said that the Holocaust had Polish perpetrators, just as it had Jewish ones.
Moraweicki made the statement at the Munich Security Conference in response to a question by Israeli journalist Ronen Bergman regarding the controversial law that criminalizes mentioning the Polish nation's complicity in the Holocaust. Prime Minister Benjamin Netanyahu sharply rebuked the 'outrageous' remarks.
Israel has vehemently criticized the bill ever since it's proposal, with Morawiecki recognizing the poor timing of the bill but stressing that "All the atrocities and all the victims, everything that happened during World War II on Polish soil, has to be attributed to Germany."
The legislation, which was approved by the Polish parliament, had referred the legislation to the Constitutional Tribunal to consider its constitutionality, and added that possible prison sentence and fines "are not really designed to punish anyone." The law will also be difficult to enforce, he acknowledged, and may be subject to changes required by the country's constitutional tribunal.
