The right-wing Polish-language weekly Tylko Polska (Only Poland) ran a story with the headline ‘How to spot a Jew,’ as footage filmed in Warsaw on Thursday shows.
The controversial article aimed at teaching readers about Jewish ‘names, anthropological features, expressions, appearances, character traits, methods of operation” as well as “disinformation activities’, as the front page of the newspaper said.
The text also read: ‘How can they be defeated? This can’t go on any longer!’ as well as claiming ‘Jews want 300,000,000,000 dollars from Poland.’
The fact that the paper was openly sold, including at a newsstand located in the Polish parliament building, sparked public outrage, with some politicians accusing the government of inaction against hate speech.
However, not everyone found the paper deserving of criticism.
Commenting on the paper, the member of the Polish Parliament and the leader of the eurosceptic Liberty party, Janusz Korwin-Mikke, said: “Why can you sell anti-German, anti-Russian or anti-Polish newspapers and you cannot sell just anti-Semitic ones? I do not see any reason.”
