Poland: Right campaigns against Knesset session in Krakow

After Polish nationalists failed in their efforts to prevent a ceremonial session of the Knesset in the Polish city of Krakow on Monday, right-wing groups have launched a campaign aimed at convincing Poles that the event would infringe on Poland’s constitutional framework and even compromise its sovereignty.

The hostile campaign is being waged primarily on youth-oriented websites, after serious newspapers in the country turned down requests to support the effort. The Knesset session coincides with International Holocaust Remembrance Day.

“The [Knesset session] is aimed solely to serve historic Jewish policy to which Polish authorities are conferring their stamp of credibility,” a message posted by campaigners on a website said.
