B’nai B’rith International has issued the following statement:
B’nai B’rith International condemns the anti-Semitic statements made by Polish priest Tadeusz Rydzyk during a meeting of the European Parliament in Brussels, Belgium on June 21.
Rydzyk, proprietor of the anti-Semitic, hard-line Catholic station Radio Maryja, made a thinly veiled attack on Jews by saying that Poland is “a totalitarian state” and that it “hasn't been ruled by Poles since 1939.” This is commonly understood to mean that he’s accusing Jews of running Poland.
B’nai B’rith urges the Vatican to take action against Rydzyk and repudiate his vitriolic hate speech.
B’nai B’rith International praises the Polish response to Rydzyk’s comments, and commends Prime Minister Donald Tusk for his swift action in condemning Rydzyk.
