FATHER RYDZYK, JEW-HATING MEDIA MOGUL LEVERAGES ANTISEMITISM TO CAUSE POLITICAL CRISIS IN POLANDOnce again, antisemitic priest, Father Tadeuscz Rydzyk (pictured) is leveraging Jew-hatred to promote his extremist agenda in Poland. Speaking to university students, the media mogul who heads Radio Maryja has created a major political crisis by seeking to scapegoat Jews, and by denouncing Poland’s President, Lech Kaczynski, as a “fraudster who is in the pockets of the Jewish lobby.”

Rydzyk went on to accuse the tiny Polish Jewish community of “grafting $65 billion from Poland" under the pretext of “Jewish pogroms” in the 1930’s saying, “They [the Jews] will come to you and say, 'Give me your coat! Take off your trousers! Give me your shoes!'"
WE MUST ACT NOW BY CLICKING HERE TO SEND A MESSAGE TO ARCHBISHOP JOZEF MICHALIK, PRESIDENT OF THE POLISH BISHOPS CONFERENCE, URGING HIM TO CALL FOR THE IMMEDIATE DISMISSAL OF FATHER RYDZYK...
Three million of Poland’s estimated 3.25 pre-World War II Jewish population, the largest Jewish community in the world, were murdered in the Nazi Holocaust. The Jewish Community’s property was never returned after World War II by the Communist regime. Current efforts to address the Restitution issue have led to Rydzyk’s outrage.
Father Rydzyk’s extremism was previously criticized by Pope Benedict XVI. His radio station has hosted antisemites and Holocaust deniers. Join the Wiesenthal Center’s call to the Catholic Church to dismiss this “Josef Goebbels in a collar.”
PLEASE ACT NOW. SIGN THE PETITION AND FORWARD TO YOUR FRIENDS AND FAMILY.
