SPRINGFIELD, Ill., (8/31/09) -- Imagine walking from Peoria to Aurora. In August, eight Illinois National Guard members did just that, except in a foreign country, Poland.

Six Soldiers and two Airmen walked 137 miles, beginning in Warsaw and ending in Czestochowa, in 10 days for the annual Polish pilgrimage. They walked with a group of about 300 people that included Polish, German and Slovakian Soldiers.

Every year, thousands of Catholics from around the world go to Poland to participate in the ceremonial walk to Jasna Gora monastery in Czestochowa, the site of the revered Black Madonna icon.

Their journey began with an early morning mass at the field cathedral of the Polish Army. Every day, the group attended Mass regardless of their various faiths and beliefs.

During the 12-hour walk each day, they were treated with prayers, songs and sermons in German, Polish, Italian and English broadcasted through large speakers carried by participants.

Local residents provided pilgrimage participants with food, refreshments and encouragement along the route. Every night, the Illinois Guardsmen slept in tents provided by the Polish Armed Forces.

“I was told numerous times by Polish Soldiers that they got a kick out of the fact that the German Soldiers and American Soldiers were communicating to each other through their Polish translators,” said Sgt. David Sworobowicz.

Local farmers stood along the route and handed out their fruit and vegetables to everyone walking in the pilgrimage. The cities also worked together to offer soups and bread for lunch everyday. The other breaks they had throughout the day were at numerous churches.

“The civilians’ generosity along the way is unmatched,” said 2nd Lt. Veronica Kool, of Springfield, Illinois Army National Guard. “All along the route, the Polish stood waiting outside their homes offering whatever food they had to give.”

“The religious experience gained from this exercise is above and beyond rewarding,” said Sworobowicz. “I can only hope to do it again sometime.”

The trip ended at Jasna Gora monastery in Czestochowa with the military pilgrimage walking the last half mile or so through thousands of supportive spectators that waved, shook their hands, gave hugs and took pictures of the group.

“It is not every day that you get to travel overseas for a friendly noncombative operation,” said 1st Lt. Jeremy Dugena. “From the arrival in Poland, the Polish Army were incredible hosts making sure we had everything we needed.”

Illinois Guardsmen participated in the pilgrimage to commemorate the 1655 Polish victory over Sweden and to build a stronger relationship with the Polish.

The National Guard sponsored State Partnership Program (SPP) between the Illinois National Guard and Republic of Poland was established in 1993.

The SPP links National Guard states and territories with their partner countries to foster mutual interests and establishing long-term relationships across all levels of society.
Through the SPP, Illinois Army and Air National Guard service members have participated in annual, joint training exchanges with military forces of the republic of Poland.

“Their professionalism and maturity are what I desire in every group of Guardsmen who come to Poland,” said Maj. James Fisher, the bilateral affairs officer for the U.S. Embassy in Warsaw. “They promoted the State Partnership Program with flying colors and are model diplomats of our country.”

Washington, D.C. (PMN)—The following letter was sent on October 17, 2008, by Frank Spula, President of the Polish American Congress (PAC), to Senator John McCain and Senator Barack Obama:

"As you may know, today a ceremony took place in the White House Rose Garden, during which President Bush announced that seven countries - Czech Republic, Slovakia, Hungary, Latvia, Lithuania, Estonia and South Korea – met the requirements to join the Visa Waiver Program.

"Poland was not included as one of the favored nations.

"I am certain that you are well aware of the great significance the inclusion of Poland in the Visa Waiver Program would have to one of this country’s most steadfast allies.

"However, Poland is still yet to be included as, according to the most recent statistics, the refusal rate in Poland is three points too high.

"There is no need to reiterate all of the facts that show how Poland has been for years one of the most reliable and consistent allies of the United States in many arenas, as well as the fact that Poland not only does not pose any kind of terrorist threat, but has done a lot to combat this international menace. I am certain that you already know all of those arguments.

"However, I would like to emphasize another, perhaps less known aspect of the situation, namely the great loss of good will today’s continued exclusion means to many people of Poland towards the United States of America.

"I have been repeatedly hearing how feelings of excitement and support towards our great country have been over the course of the last two years turning into those of disappointment and bitterness.

"Furthermore, and more worrisome, I have been hearing that many members of the 10 million strong Polish American Community (Polonia) are starting to hold similar feelings.

"In these turbulent times, the United States has to cultivate and cherish its relationships with most faithful allies. Poland is definitely among those nations. It is time, in fact it is now much past due, to show Poland that its support and contributions are valued by the United States, and not with sweet words, but with concrete actions.

"As the President of the Polish American Congress, one of the oldest-and the largest-Polish ethnic organization in the United States, I urge you, either as the next president of our great nation or on the Senate floor, to do what the previous administration has been promising Poland and Polonia for years but have never delivered – make sure that Poland joins the privileged ranks of the visa free travel as soon as possible."

A similar letter was sent to President George W. Bush, who has been promising the visa waiver for Polish citizens for years, but, despite praising Poland as an ally, has not delivered on the promise.

Obama has said that he would invite Poland to join the Visa Waiver Program. A campaign release stated, "Today’s visa regime with Poland reflects neither the current strategic relationship nor the close historic bond between our peoples … In particular, this means expanding the program to countries, like Poland, that have demonstrated a capacity and willingness to cooperate with the U.S. in achieving counterterrorism goals."

McCain has been silent on the subject during his campaign for the presidency and reportedly agrees with the current Bush policy on visa waivers.

Hundreds of US soldiers join Polish pilgrimage
By VANESSA GERA – 17 hours ago

WARSAW, Poland (AP) — Hundreds of soldiers in camouflage set off Tuesday on a 10-day march to Poland's holiest Roman Catholic shrine — among them five Americans hoping to deepen ties with an ally.

Five members of the Illinois National Guard traveled to Poland to make the 180-mile (290-kilometer) trek on foot — alongside Poles, Germans and other Europeans — from Warsaw to Czestochowa, site of the revered Black Madonna icon.

Though the 300-year-old pilgrimage has deep religious and patriotic resonance in mainly Catholic Poland, the main purpose of the U.S. contingent, a tradition that has started in recent years, is to show solidarity with Poland — an ally in Iraq and Afghanistan — and other nations.

It's a chance "to come together and share a little bit, and hopefully develop closer bonds with foreign militaries in a non-combat type setting," said Master Sgt. Roman Waldron, 37, from Springfield, Illinois.

Before embarking on the pilgrimage, the pilgrims attended an early morning Mass at the Field Cathedral of the Polish Army, where a priest blessed them with holy water. They were also told to set a moral example and refrain from drinking or smoking during the march.

The Black Madonna — which legend says was painted by St. Luke — was brought to the Jasna Gora monastery in Czestochowa in 1384.

Many miracles have been attributed to the painting, including a 1655 siege during which 70 monks and 180 supporters held off nearly 4,000 soldiers from the Protestant Swedish army and inspired Poles to rise up and throw out the invaders.

Sgt. 1st Class Evan Young, from Rock Island, Illinois, believes the pilgrimage is going to be even more meaningful than he had first imagined.

"Originally when I was given the opportunity I thought it would be kind of a neat way to see Poland, but then I started doing research on the Black Madonna and the siege and I thought it's part of a much bigger thing," said Young, a 45-year-old who grew up Episcopalian.

"It's pretty neat to be taking part in this, and help improve relations with Poland and other countries that are here," he said.

Only one of the five American soldiers is a Catholic. They will sleep in eight-man tents set up along the route by the Polish army.

The soldiers were trailed by thousands of students and other pilgrims in Warsaw, and will eventually join up with thousands more expected to converge on Czestochowa next week, ahead of the August 15 Catholic holy day marking the Assumption of Mary.

Warsaw Archbishop Kazimierz Nycz walked briefly with the group Tuesday.

"This builds brotherhood among soldiers from different countries," he said.

This is how Poland saved 13 Americans CIA in IraQ 1990 Operation Samum real story

Poland of Europe are and will be the best and reliable allie of the United States in this new century

Have you ever heard about Operation Samum which the point was that to evacuate US officers from Iraq just before Desert Storm? That was Polish Intelligence Service big succes. General Gromos 2;aw Czempi 4;ski take out of Iraq US officers. He learned them to spell their "new" polish names because they were given new IDs and document. They have to act polish building workers. Polish officer told him to drink bottle of alcohole and say to Iraqi officer on border line that they are very happy cause they are coming back to Poland. They were very drunk but fortunatelly they spelled their new names correctly. Operation was succesful. US gerneral gave polish officers medals. Brits and other countries refused to make this operation.

For the Americans, Polish intelligence was the last chance-everyone else had already left Iraq as the atmosphere was too hot to handle. For the government in Warsaw, Operation Samum was an opportunity to show that Poland could be an equal partner and in the future a worthy NATO member.

A brilliant performance, what's better is the fact that:

Polish forces rescued not only CIA agents from Baghdad but also secret maps apparently so crucial that Operation Desert Storm could have had a different outcome if the mission had failed.

But even though it was a success, all the details of the operation will never see the light of day.

Operation Simoom[1] (Polish: Operacja Samum) was a top secret Polish intelligence operation conducted in Iraq in 1990.

In 1990 the CIA asked European intelligence agencies to assist in the withdrawal of six American operatives (a mix of CIA and DIA officers) investigating Iraqi troops movements in Iraq before the Gulf War (WP 1995). Several countries, such as Russia, Great Britain, and France refused to help in such a dangerous operation; only Poland agreed to help (WP 1995). The operation was very risky because if the cover were to be blown, all operatives were likely to be killed.

Poland had ties throughout Iraq because of construction work carried out there by Polish engineering companies (WP 1995) and sent a few operatives to start working on the operation. Gromos 2;aw Czempi 4;ski (WV 1999) became the commander of this operation, assigned to it by Polish Minister of Internal Affairs and first chief of Urząd Ochrony Pa 4;stwa, Krzysztof Koz 2;owski (WP 1995). Ironically, Czempi 4;ski has previously been a spy in the United States and either took part or led many operations against the Western intelligence services (WP 1995). The main plan was to reestablish contact with the hiding American spies and give them Polish passports so they could escape from Iraq in a bus, alongside Polish and Russian workers.
The escape came after the six agents spent weeks on the run in Kuwait and Baghdad (WP 1995). The operation was very difficult because the Iraqis started to suspect some kind of American-Polish intrigue (WP 1995).

The agents were given refuge at a Polish construction camp, and then provided with passports and put on a refugee bus. An Iraqi officer at checkpoint on the border had studied in Poland and spoke Polish well enough to communicate. When the bus arrived at the border, he asked one of the American spies a question in Polish. Since the spy did not know Polish at all, he pretended to be heavily drunk (another version states that the operative in question fainted). Nevertheless, the bus managed to cross the border with all occupants (WP 1995). Poles moved the agents out of Iraq and into the safety of Turkey (WP 1995). Operatives from both sides returned to their countries. Polish forces rescued not only the agents but also secret maps—detailed maps of Baghdad and particulars about military installations scattered throughout Iraq—apparently crucial for Operation Desert Storm. (WP 1995, WV 1999)
As a reward for Poland's help, the US government promised to cancel half, or $16.5 billion, of Poland's foreign debt (NYT 1995).

In at least two other operations, the Poles later aided another 15 foreigners to escape, mostly Britons, held hostage by the Iraqis as part of Saddam Hussein's "human shield" campaign to deter an allied invasion. (WP 1995)

Information about this operation was first revealed in 1995 by The Washington Post (NYT 1995, WV 1999). In 1999, Polish director W 2;adys 2;aw Pasikowski made a movie, Operacja Samum about this operation; it was the first Polish production co-financed by Warner Bros. and third by

Rada Polityki Zagranicznej USA (The Council on Foreign Relations in Washington) wydaje dwumiesięcznik pt. Sprawy Zagraniczne (Foreign Affairs Magazine), w którym jest wyznaczany zakres alternatyw polityki zagranicznej Stanów Zjednoczonych. Rada Polityki Zagranicznej USA zajmuje dominującą pozycję dzięki ciągłości swego istnienia i składu członków, którzy zaliczają się do najwybitniejszych naukowców i dyplomatów Stanów Zjednoczonych. Od Drugiej Wojny Światowej rada ta wybrała każdego ministra spraw zagranicznych USA, niektórzy z nich nie byli osobiście znani prezydentom, którym mieli służyć. Wrześniowy i październikowy numer Spraw Zagranicznych zawiera oszczerczy artykuł o Polsce p.t. Polacy i Żydzi Abrahama Brumberga, w którym z aprobatą cytowane jest zdanie z książki ,,Sąsiedzi” J. T. Grossa: "zbrodnicze refleksy społeczeństwa polskiego skierowane przeciw Żydom nie były przypadkowymi zdarzeniami...." Wypowiedz ta jedynie zmienia podmiot napaści podczas gdy jest równoznaczna ze znaną opinią Hitlera o Żydach jako rasie urodzonych zbrodniarzy.

Zamieszczenie tak oszczerczego i antypolskiego artykułu w "Sprawach Zagranicznych" bezpośrednio po oficjalnej wizycie prezydenta Kwaśniewskiego w USA oznacza, że polityka amerykańska w stosunku do Polski nie uległa poprawie mimo przyjaznych spotkań obu prezydentów przed kamerami telewizyjnymi.

Od dawna znana rasistowska i wroga postawa Brumberga wobec Polski jest bardzo podobna do stanowiska nazistów wobec Żydów w czasie Drugiej Wojny Światowej. W artykułach ,,Poles and Jews” oraz ,,Murder Most Foul” Brumberg potępia Naród Polski razem z jego tradycją tolerancji i walki o wolność. Brumberg stara się przedstawić Polaków jako degeneratów, których jedynym celem w życiu jest znęcanie się nad Żydami. Jest to analogiczne do nazistowskiego obrazu Żydów prze wojną, których jedynym celem w życiu miało być szkodzenie aryjczykom. Nie ulega wątpliwości, że rasistowski artykuł Brumberga, jak i wspomniana książka Grossa prowadzą do wzajemnej nienawiści i utrudniają zjednoczenie się ludzi w szacunku do ofiar minionych krzywd, niesprawiedliwości i zbrodni systemów totalitarnych.

Należy raz jeszcze zaznaczyć, że Rada Polityki Zagranicznej USA (The Council on Foreign Relations in Washington) wyznacza kierunek polityki zagranicznej USA i ma więcej wpływu na stosunki Stanów Zjednoczonych z innymi państwami niż mają tak parlament, jak i prezydent USA. Wydanie w obecnej chwili artykułu pełnego pogardy i oszczerstw pod adresem Polski oznacza poparcie przez Rade Polityki Zagranicznej USA kampanii wymuszenia okupu od Państwa Polskiego, i to na bez porównania większą skalę, niż okup który niedawno zapłaciła Szwajcaria. Kampanią tą, o czym już pisałem we wcześniejszych artykułach, kieruje Światowa Żydowska Organizacja Roszczeniowa (World Jewish Restitution Organization of the World Jewish Congress).

Po wojnie, żydowski ruch roszczeniowy ( World Jewish Restitution Organization of the World Jewish Congress) odniósł sukcesy w zdobywaniu kolosalnych sum od rządu niemieckiego, a ostatnio uzyskał on od banków szwajcarskich sumę tysiąc dwustu pięćdziesięciu tysięcy milionów dolarów (miliarda dwustu pięćdziesięciu tysięcy) niby jako odszkodowanie za sprzeniewierzenie trzydziestu dwu milionów dolarów w 755 kontach przedwojennych (według oficjalnej komisji bankiera amerykańskiego Volckera). Uważa się, że tak wielka suma była okupem banków szwajcarskich zagrożonych bojkotem i utratą prawa do funkcjonowania na rynku nowojorskim. Ostatnio ruch roszczeniowy uzyskał od władz niemieckich blisko połowę całego funduszu odszkodowań za pracę niewolniczą w Niemczech bez sporządzenia odpowiedniej listy imiennej. Stało się to ku oburzeniu jeszcze żywych setek tysięcy weteranów pracy niewolniczej w Niemczech. Ludzie ci zdają sobie sprawę, że obecnie przy życiu nie ma więcej jak dziesięć tysięcy żydowskich weteranów pracy niewolniczej, ponieważ było ich już tylko około pięćdziesięciu tysięcy w 1945 roku na terenie Niemiec.
Teraz aby móc w dalszym ciągu funkcjonować i wymuszać odszkodowania od następnego państwa, ruch roszczeniowy musi udowodnić opinii światowej, jakie to jeszcze inne państwo brało udział w zagładzie Żydów. Tak wiec teraz przyszła kolej na Polskę, w której nieruchomości (tereny, budynki, etc.) jako członka NATO i potencjalnego członka Unii Europejskiej wnet będą bez porównania więcej warte niż są w dniu dzisiejszym. Tak więc wartość rynkowa przedwojennych posiadłości żydowskich w Polsce pójdzie w górę, wielokrotnie wyżej niż jest ich obecna wartość – stanowi to łakomy kąsek dla ,,przedsiębiorstwa Holokaust”.

Zdobycie prawa własności do tych obiektów przez żydowski ruch roszczeniowy może być spowodowane presją amerykańską na Polskę. Obiekty te przedstawiają około 15% do 20% całego polskiego majątku narodowego i będą wkrótce warte ponad sto tysięcy milionów dolarów (sto miliardów dolarów), tak że zdobycie kontroli nad nimi uczyniłoby ruch roszczeniowy (World Jewish Restitution Organization of the World Jewish Congress) największym potentatem finansowym i politycznym w Polsce. Ruch ten w krótkim czasie mógłby zmienić Polskę w satelitę Izraela i mieć ją w rezerwie na ponowną kolonizację przez Żydów, zwłaszcza jeśli ich życie w Izraelu stanie się nie do zniesienia.

Po Polsce żydowski ruch roszczeniowy najprawdopodobniej zainteresuje się Węgrami, Czechami, Słowacją, a następnie byłymi republikami sowieckimi Ukrainą, Białorusią, Litwą i Łotwą, w miarę jak kraje te odbudują się gospodarczo i będą mogły wstępować do NATO i do Unii Europejskiej, co jak wiemy nie wydaje się odległą perspektywą.

Żydowski ruch roszczeniowy jest popierany przez syjonistyczne lobby, które już zorganizowało pogróżki członków amerykańskiego parlamentu pod adresem Polski - senator Hilary Clinton jest jednym z prowodyrów w akcji tych pogróżek. Niedawno członkowie Sejmu polskiego, którzy usiłowali ograniczyć wysokość odszkodowań żydowskich byli oskarżeni przez Światowy Związek Żydów (World Jewish Congress) o "anty-amerykanizm" – oszczercze oskarżenie bardzo szkodliwe dla Polski, gdy jest ona tak bardzo uzależniona od dobrej woli rządu amerykańskiego. Oskarżenia te są wygłaszane mimo tego że w czasie niedawnej formalnej wizyty prezydenta Kwaśniewskiego, prezydent Bush powiedział, że Polska jest najbardziej proamerykańskim krajem w NATO.

Powtórzenie Schematu Propagandy Nazistowskiej

Żydowski ruch roszczeniowy (World Jewish Restitution Organization) zdobywa wielki rozgłos, który daje mu darmową światową reklamę. Od lat było wiadomo, że w czerwcu 1941 roku rząd niemiecki zdecydował się rozpowszechniać propagandę mającą przekonać świat, że niemiecka inwazja na Sowiety była entuzjastycznie witana przez ludność, która doświadczyła sowieckiego terroru. Niemiecka propaganda głosiła, że ludność terenów przyfrontowych z zemsty masowo mordowała komunistów i Żydów. Mordy te były opisywane jako reakcja ludności miejscowej na wcześniejsze sowieckie prześladowania.

Żeby zapewnić sukces swojej propagandzie nazistowski rząd niemiecki nakazał (rozkaz R. Heydricha z 29 czerwca 1941 roku) oddziałom egzekucyjnym zacierać wszelkie ślady swej obecności przy egzekucjach, nie robić dziennych raportów, jak również zakazane były zdjęcia pamiątkowe, które żołnierze niemieccy często sobie robili ze swoimi ofiarami. Brak niemieckiej dokumentacji dotyczącej masowych egzekucji przyfrontowych pozwolił ludziom z żydowskiego ruchu roszczeniowego ponownie zastosować przeciwko Polakom ten sam nazistowski schemat propagandowy oskarżający o zbrodnie niemieckie miejscową ludność. Ruch roszczeniowy (World Jewish Restitution Organization) w ten sposób – wykorzystując prowokację nazistów - "udowadnia" winę Narodu Polskiego w zagładzie Żydów.

Sprawa Jedwabnego zdominowała polskie środki przekazu i promieniowała na cały świat, który dowiadywał się o niej głównie z wypowiedzi przedstawicieli ruchu roszczeniowego. Zbrodnia z 10. VII. 1941 roku miała być dowodem polskiej winy narodowej w zagładzie Żydów. W korespondencji ze mną na ten temat profesor Józef Wieczyński, główny redaktor pięćdziesięciotomowej encyklopedii Rosji użył trafnego terminu "bitwa o Jedwabne." Ta medialna "bitwa o Jedwabne" dała żydowskiemu ruchowi roszczeniowemu kolosalną ilość bezpłatnej reklamy na światową skalę. Bitwa ta pozostanie faktycznie nierozegrana do czasu przeprowadzenia badań medycyny sądowej dwu masowych grobów w Jedwabnem co pozwoli dokładnie udowodnić plan i metodę zbrodni, jak również ilość ofiar i powód śmierci każdej z nich.

Szczegóły Tragedii w Jedwabnem

Dziś wiadomo, że 10 lipca 1941 roku Niemcy terrorem poprowadzili Żydów jedwabieńskich na miejsce ich masakry. Zastrzelili około 50ciu i spalili żywcem około 250 (nie 1600, czy 1800 jak to doniosła prasa amerykańska na podstawie fałszywych informacji zawartych w książce Sąsiedzi J. T. Grossa, który zignorował sowieckie i niemieckie źródła archiwalne).
Niemcy zorganizowali sobie do pomocy Volksduetch'ow (zdrajców i szpiegów), grupę prymitywnych kryminalistów miejscowych i z okolicy, oraz - jest nie wykluczone - że tez kilku "mścicieli." Ci ostatni, jeżeli rzeczywiście tam byli to prawdopodobnie byli przekonani, że niektórzy z Żydów jedwabieńskich narazili ich samych i ich rodziny na ciężkie prześladowanie przez NKWD i zsyłki do Gułagu. Dodatkową grupę Polaków Niemcy zmusili groźbami zastrzelenia i ciosami kolb karabinów do sprowadzenia Żydów do czyszczenia bruku na rynku.
Jeszcze żyją świadkowie tej szczegółowo zaplanowanej niemieckiej egzekucji kilkuset Żydów jedwabieńskich z 10 lipca 1941 roku. Wtedy Niemcy zmusili około 300 Żydów do maszerowania w niby pogrzebie betonowej głowy Lenina straconej z pomnika w rynku.
Niemcy podzielili Żydów na dwie grupy. Pierwsza grupa była złożona z około 50 mężczyzn, na tyle silnych, że mogliby się rozpaczliwie bronić. Druga grup była złożona z około 250 osób, głównie kobiet, dzieci i starców.

Podczas gdy druga grupa była zatrzymana w tyle, pierwszej grupie Niemcy kazali wejść do malej stodoły, do której klucze skonfiskowali poprzedniego dnia, kiedy to opróżnili stodołę z przechowywanych w niej maszyn rolniczych. Pierwszej grupie Niemcy kazali kopać rów w klepisku stodoły by niby tam pochować głowę Lenina. (Gross napisał błędnie, że scena ta odbywała się na cmentarzu żydowskim). Kiedy rów był wykopany Niemcy otworzyli ogień do pierwszej grupy Żydów i prawdopodobnie kazali Polakom żeby pochowali rozstrzelanych Żydów. Głowę Lenina umieszczono na zwłokach w grobie pierwszej grupy ofiar. Wtedy Niemcy kazali drugiej grupie wejść do stodoły, którą wkrótce polali benzyną i podpalili

Stefan Boczkowski, Roman Chojnowski i pięciu innych świadków zeznało, że widzieli jak Niemcy palili stodołę pełną Żydów. Niemiecka półciężarówka podjechała z żołnierzami niemieckimi i puszkami z benzyna. Część żołnierzy zeskoczyła, a pozostali podawali im puszki, których zawartość wylali na ściany stodoły i podpalili. Płomienie gwałtownie ogarnęły stodołę.

Pirotechniczna analiza wskazuje, że Niemcy musieli użyć około 400 litrów benzyny na mniej więcej 100 metrach kwadratowych ścian stodoły żeby została natychmiast objęta płomieniami, które spowodowały śmierć ofiar zamkniętych w stodole. Ludność miejscowa nie miała wtedy w ogóle dostępu do benzyny. Ludzie mieli małe ilości nafty do lamp naftowych. Nafta do lamp zapala się przy temperaturze ponad 50 stopni Celsjusza. Trudno by było za pomocą nafty wywołać tak nagły pożar, bo nafta po prostu nie pali się tak gwałtownie jak benzyna.

Następnego dnia Niemcy zmusili okolicznych rolników do wykopania rowu wzdłuż stodoły i pogrzebania w nim rozkładające się i wydające okropny zapach ciała ludzi z drugiej grupy w świeżo wykopanym grobie.

Instytut Pamięci Narodowej ustalił w 2001 roku, że ciała ofiar masakry Żydów z 1941 roku są pochowane wyłącznie w wyżej wymienionych grobach. Niestety, ekshumacja grobów została przerwana na skutek prośby rabina. Kompletne badanie zwłok według zasad medycyny sadowej i procedury kryminalnej oparte na całkowitej ekshumacji pogrzebanych wszystkich ofiar nie zostało dokonane. Tak wiec niewiadomo ile osób zostało pogrzebanych i jaki był powód śmierci każdej z nich. Na podstawie pojemności obu grobów oceniono w przybliżeniu ilość ofiar na około 200-300 osób. Przy braku kompletnej ekshumacji i dokładnej analizy w oparciu z o zasady medycyny sadowej jakiekolwiek ostateczne sprawozdanie IPN jest bezwartościowe, bo brak ustalenia powodu śmierci każdej z ofiar i dokładnej ich ilości.

Postkomunistyczna Lewica a Prawda Historyczna

Post-komunistyczny prezydent Polski i jego post-komunistyczny premier dają poparcie ruchowi roszczeniowemu za pomocą polityki przeproszeń i skruchy za morderstwa takie jak masakra jedwabieńska, za którą oczywiście odpowiedzialny są Niemcy. Nic dziwnego że taka polityka nie tylko wzmocniła żądania Rosjan żeby Polska przeprosiła za niedopełnioną zbrodnię ludobójstwa na jeńcach rosyjskich w 1920 roku, ale również wzmacnia żądania niemieckie mające na celu obalenie ustaleń poczdamskich i warunków kapitulacji Niemiec, zwłaszcza tych które dotyczą mienia poniemieckiego w Polsce zachodniej i północnej.

Pamięć narodowa Polaków, jak i innych narodów dziś wyzwolonych spod sowieckiej dominacji zachowała obraz nieproporcjonalnie wysokiego udziału mniejszości żydowskiej i jej centralnej roli w narzucaniu jarzma sowieckiego przez stalinowski aparat terroru na kraje satelickie po Drugiej Wojnie Światowej. Ten niezaprzeczalny fakt historyczny był potwierdzony przez główne na świecie pismo kontrolowane przez Żydów - New York Times.

Absurdalna wersja tragedii jedwabieńskiej, stworzona przez J. T. Grossa i powtarzana przez Abrahama Brumberga jest teraz rozgłaszana na łamach dwumiesięcznika Sprawy Zagraniczne. Dwumiesięcznik ten dziś głosi na cały świat kłamstwa i oszczerstwa, które przedstawione są jako prawda historyczna. Rząd polski może obalić te fałsze przez dokonanie ekshumacji obydwu grobów ofiar masakry Żydów w Jedwabnem. Potrzebne jest publiczne obalenie tych kłamstw faktami materialnymi otrzymanymi przez ekshumacje - te fakty jak widać, ruchowi roszczeniowemu i jego sprzymierzeńcom są niewygodne i dlatego kompletna ekshumacja nie została przeprowadzona według wymogów medycyny sadowej. Dopiero po kompletnym przebadaniu zawartości obydwu grobów prawda będzie mogła być oficjalnie ogłoszona. Stanie się to najprawdopodobniej wtedy kiedy Polska będzie rządzić władza złożona z patriotycznych Polaków, wolnych od wpływów post-komunistycznej lewicy.

  • Just a year ago, Gazprom seemed all-powerful. The Russian gas producer was the third-largest corporation in the world, sat on a hoard of cash and had single-handedly blocked gas to a large part of Europe in the middle of winter without fear of losing business.

    A lot has changed since – with both Gazprom and its customers strapped for cash amid the global downturn, the Russian behemoth is now under pressure to lighten its heavy-handed touch and become more accommodating with them.

    The main market force reshaping the Russian monopoly's attitude has clearly been the economic crisis, which has decimated energy demand from Europe's massive industrial sector. But while the recession has hit businesses everywhere, Gazprom is also a victim of its own rigid practices.

    Because the company pegs its prices to the oil market, its customers are paying 50 per cent more than those buying on the spot market, which means new customers have no incentive to sign a deal with it. Furthermore, Gazprom has so far insisted on an inflexible contract system called “take-or-pay” which risks driving demand away.

    Under these contracts, Gazprom's European customers must buy a fixed amount of natural gas at a price pegged to crude oil for a duration of 20 to 30 years. The take-or-pay clause means that even if customers take less – which is exactly the case amid the downturn – they still have to pay.

    Masonerka żydowska Bn Br usuwa nasz krzyż ze Żwirowiska

    O możliwości przeniesienia papieskiego krzyża, stojącego na Żwirowisku, nieopodal byłego obozu koncentracyjnego Auschwitz w Oświęcimiu donosi belgijski dziennik "La Libre Belgique".

    żródło KAI (rk /a.)


    Dziś po 10 latach organizacje żydowskie znowu atakują Polaków w imię tzw. "dialogu"
    Nakazy jak poprzednio tak i tym razem przyszły z Belgii od organizacji "Sauvegarde d`Auschwitz"
    i szefa organizacji żydowskich Lazarda Pereza.

    Judajczykowie znowu atakują chrześcijan, chcą usunąć nasz krzyż,
    a ofiarami masowych mordów w Oświęcimiu uczynić tylko Żydów.

    Do takich celów powołanych zostało wiele organizacji,
    stawiających sobie za cel wynarodowienie Polaków, zniszczenie tradycji chrześcijańskich,
    zapłatę gigantycznego i nienależnego haraczu oraz budowę "Judeopolonii" na terenie Polski.

    Warto wiedzieć, że 9 września 2007 w Polsce reaktywowaną masońską lożę B'nai B'rith

    Polska trzeba będzie oddać 500 milionów złotych spółce J&S, założonej przez dwóch ukraińskich muzykantów.
    "Myśląc Ojczyzna"
    red. Stanisław Michalkiewicz (2009-10-21) Felieton


    Dobroduszne pokpiwanki
    Szanowni Państwo!
    Afery: hazardowa, stoczniowa i podsłuchowa rozwijają się według własnej dynamiki i już niedługo władze naszego państwa zaoferują nam widowisko telewizyjne w postaci komisji śledczej, gdzie będziemy mogli obejrzeć sobie popisy krętactwa w wykonaniu najwyższych dygnitarzy, pana premiera nie wyłączając. Ale bo też to jest jedna z niewielu rzeczy, które władze naszego państwa mogą zaoferować nam - obywatelom, jeśli oczywiście nie liczyć zdzierstwa podatkowego i marnotrawstwa publicznych pieniędzy. Właśnie okazało się, że trzeba będzie oddać 500 milionów złotych spółce J&S, założonej przez dwóch ukraińskich muzykantów, która pośredniczy w sprzedaży ropy naftowej. Nie tylko 500 milionów, ale jeszcze 80 milionów odsetek. Tak orzekł niezawisły sąd, a ponieważ na tym świecie pełnym złości nigdy nic nie wiadomo - to nie wiadomo też, czy jacyś starsi i mądrzejsi nie poradzili niezawisłemu sądowi, by orzekł na korzyść ukraińskich muzykantów. Oczywiście w takie sprawy lepiej zbyt głęboko nie wnikać, bo skoro nasze państwo, które - jak mówi poeta - ma "i wojsko własne, własny skarb", a przecież nie może uwolnić się od pośrednictwa muzykantów, to cóż dopiero my, bezsilni obywatele?
    Sprawa muzykantów jest jeszcze jedną poszlaką, pokazującą ile nasze demokratyczne państwo prawne naprawdę może. Oczywiście z jednej strony może bardzo dużo; może na przykład wszystkich podsłuchiwać telefonicznie i pokojowo, podglądać i prowokować, a nawet i obrabować, ale na tym chyba te możliwości się kończą. W innych bowiem sprawach, a zwłaszcza w dziedzinie nazywanej polityką międzynarodową, dygnitarze nasi mogą, jak się wydaje, groźnie kiwać palcem w bucie. Mogliśmy się o tym przekonać na własne oczy 1 września na Westerplatte w Gdańsku i wkrótce potem, 17 września, kiedy amerykański prezydent Obama otwartym tekstem oświadczył, ze w związku z wkroczeniem Stanów Zjednoczonych na nieubłaganą drogę poprawy stosunków z Rosją, Ameryka już żadnych dywersantów w Europie Środkowo-Wschodniej nie potrzebuje. Krótko mówiąc, cała "polityka jagiellońska" zawaliła nam się w jednej chwili. Ale tak to już jest, kiedy nie stoi się na własnych nogach i kiedy próbuje się prężyć cudze muskuły. W rezultacie pan prezydent Kaczyński z podwiniętym ogonem potruchtał w objęcia Naszej Pani Anieli i 10 października podpisał traktat lizboński, nie czekając nawet na sławne "ustawy kompetencyjne", których uchwalenie uzgodnił był w ubiegłym roku z premierem Tuskiem z Juracie i od których uzależniał ratyfikację.
    Tymczasem jeszcze raz się okazało, ze pospiech jest wskazany tylko w dwóch przypadkach: przy biegunce i przy łapaniu pcheł. Przy ratyfikowaniu traktatów - już niekoniecznie. Dzisiaj bowiem odwiedził Warszawę wiceprezydent Stanów Zjednoczonych, pan Józef Biden. Wszystko wskazuje na to, że pan Biden przywiózł nam środki znieczulające, których zadaniem jest ukojenie naszego bólu po zawodzie wywołanym uwiedzeniem i porzuceniem. Ale nawet wykonując tę prostą misję dyplomatyczną, pan wiceprezydent Biden nie omieszkał pokazać przez fakty konkludentne, jakie są prawdziwe priorytety obecnej administracji amerykańskiej w Polsce. Na ogół bowiem każdy zagraniczny gość rozpoczyna swoją, zwłaszcza kilkugodzinną wizytę, od rozmowy z najważniejszym tubylczym dygnitarzem, a dopiero potem odwiedza, albo nawet przyjmuje mniej ważnych. Otóż wiceprezydent Biden spotkał się najpierw z przedstawicielami społeczności żydowskiej w Polsce. To więcej wyjaśnia, niż mówi, bo potwierdza podejrzenia, iż obecna administracja USA traktuje Polskę już niemal wyłącznie jako skarbonkę żydowskich organizacji "przemysłu holokaustu". Niemal wyłącznie - bo poza tym również jako rezerwuar darmowych askarysów na różne egzotyczne wojny o pokój.
    Oczywiście znając naszą próżność i pragnienie uznania ze strony świata, pan wiceprezydent Biden nie szczędzi nam komplementów, nawet graniczących z szyderstwem. Jestem pewien, że robi to nie ze złej woli, tylko raczej z przyzwyczajenia, niemniej jednak określenie Polski jako "strategicznego partnera" Stanów Zjednoczonych zakrawa na mimowolne szyderstwo. I to nie dlatego, by taka rzecz była teoretycznie niemożliwa z uwagi na dysproporcje między Ameryką i Polską. Izrael jest od Polski przecież jeszcze mniejszy, a niewątpliwie jest nie tylko strategicznym partnerem Stanów Zjednoczonych, ale nawet rodzajem strategicznego mentora! Ale strategiczne partnerstwo USA z Izraelem wyraża się w konkretach - a właściwie w najważniejszym konkrecie - mianowicie w dwustronnym sojuszu wojskowym. Tymczasem w przypadku Polski o tym nie ma w ogóle mowy, co oczywiście sprawia, że opowieści o strategicznym partnerstwie amerykańsko-polskim nabierają cech niezbyt taktownego komplementu.
    Kolejnym rozmówcą wiceprezydenta Bidena był premier Donald Tusk, któremu amerykański gość pewnie zaoferował umieszczenie w Polsce ruchomych rakiet SM3, które są podobno "przyjazne środowisku" - oczywiście międzynarodowemu środowisku politycznemu. To enigmatyczne określenie może mieć oczywiście wiele znaczeń, ale w naszej sytuacji najważniejsze wydaje się jedno: że te rakiety są do przyjęcia przez Rosję. A skoro są do przyjęcia przez Rosję, to znaczy, że nie są dla niej niebezpieczne. Ale w takim razie czy są bezpieczne dla nas? Wygląda na to, że "przyjazne środowisku" ruchome rakiety są rodzajem nagrody pocieszenia za odstąpienie od planów rozmieszczenia w Polsce i Czechach sławnej tarczy antyrakietowej. Ta tarcza antyrakietowa od pewnego czasu też była rodzajem kwiatu paproci, ale przynajmniej miała jedną właściwość, ze na stałe znajdowała się na polskim terytorium i w razie czego trzeba by jej chyba bronić. Tymczasem ruchome wyrzutnie zawsze można ewakuować w inne miejsce, zatem obietnica pana wiceprezydenta Bidena sprawia wrażenie już zupełnie na wodzie pisanej.
    I na koniec pan wiceprezydent Biden zostawił sobie spotkanie z panem prezydentem Lechem Kaczyńskim. Z nim pewnie poruszył kwestie strategiczne, o których zresztą wspominał wcześniej w wywiadzie dla "Rzeczpospolitej" - że USA popierają ukraińskie i gruzińskie aspiracje do NATO, ale to tamte państwa same musza o to zabiegać. W tych uprzejmych słowach potwierdził amerykańskie stanowisko wyrażone jeszcze w grudniu ubiegłego roku przez Kondolizę, że USA nie będą już forsowały obecności Gruzji i Ukrainy w NATO, a tylko "umacniały tam demokrację" - co w przełożeniu na język ludzki może oznaczać starania o odpowiednią pozycję swoich agentów w strukturach tamtejszych państw. Ponieważ jednak Niemcy, związane strategicznym partnerstwem z Rosją, ani myślą godzić się na przyjęcie Ukrainy i Gruzji do NATO, to widać wyraźnie, że dzisiejsza wizyta pana wiceprezydenta Józefa Bidena tylko potwierdza nieodwracalność katastrofy "polityki jagiellońskiej", a co więcej - potwierdza również, że Stany Zjednoczone - o czym podczas swojej wizyty w Berlinie wspominał kandydat Obama - przyjmują do aprobującej wiadomości przewodnią rolę Niemiec w Europie - ze wszystkimi tego konsekwencjami.
    Krótko mówiąc - ten cukierek na osłodę ma również posmak goryczy - ale tak to już jest, gdy się w porę nie wykorzysta okazji, jakie były kiedyś w zasięgu ręki.

    Fikołki na lodowcu
    Nasz Dziennik, 2009-10-23
    "Cepeliada, cepeliada, w ogródeczku panna Mania, Chmurka się przejęzyczyła, jaja nie do wytrzymania!" - śpiewał Jacek Kleyff w schyłkowym okresie dekady Edwarda Gierka, kiedy w telewizji, na przekór nadciągającej katastrofie, królowała tzw. propaganda sukcesu. Inna rzecz, że okazała się ona bardzo skuteczna, bo mimo upływu 30 lat liczba nieutulonych w żalu sierot po Edwardzie Gierku nie tylko nie spada, ale nawet jakby rosła. Z tego właśnie - jak przypuszczam - powodu propaganda unijna pada u nas na tak podatny grunt; Bruksela da forsę i znowu wszystko będzie jak dawniej, to znaczy - czy się stoi, czy się leży... Z perspektywy tych 30 lat coraz trudniej zrozumieć, dlaczego właściwie w 1980 roku powstała "Solidarność" i po cośmy obalali komunizm ze Związkiem Sowieckim na czele. Dlaczego było tak źle, skoro przecież było tak dobrze, że dzisiejsze czasy na tle tamtych wypadają tak odrażająco? Inna rzecz, że wtedy wielu rzeczy nie można było mówić, bo cenzura i w ogóle, podczas gdy dzisiaj każdy plecie, co mu tylko ślina na język przyniesie, ale paradoksalnie może to być jeszcze jedna poszlaka, że "Ojciec Narodów" Józef Stalin mógł mieć rację, uważając, iż wolność tak naprawdę nie jest ludziom do niczego potrzebna. Nie tylko niepotrzebna, ale nawet szkodliwa, bo od jej nadmiaru niektórzy zaczynają głupieć. Nawiasem mówiąc, przewidział to również poeta, pisząc, że "wolność jest jakoby posiadanie fletu; jeśli weźmie go człowiek muzyki nieświadom, piersi straci i uszy zatruje sąsiadom". Jeśli nawet nie wszystkim, to niektórym na pewno.

    Na szczęście nie wszystko stracone, bo wyrwana ze szponów "byłego neonazisty" państwowa telewizja, wspomagana stacjami komercyjnymi, znowu rusza do pełnienia tak zwanej misji, to znaczy - utrzymywania milionów dorosłych metrykalnie ludzi w stanie infantylizmu przy pomocy kreowania pogodnego obrazu rzeczywistości, w której, jeśli nawet wydarzy się coś niepokojącego, to tak czy owak musi zakończyć się wesołym oberkiem. Mundus vult decipi, ergo decipiatur (świat chce być oszukiwany, niechże więc będzie). Skwapliwie korzystają z tej okazji nasi mężowie stanu; pan premier Tusk chwyta się afery podsłuchowej, żeby nie tylko zatrzeć nieprzyjemne wrażenie po aferze hazardowej i prywatyzacyjnej, które napędziły mu tyle strachu, ale i zaprezentować się w roli obrońcy swobód obywatelskich przed tajniakami, podobnie jak pan prezydent Kaczyński, któremu w kreowaniu wizerunku płomiennego obrońcy interesu narodowego trochę przeszkadzałoby wspomnienie o niedawnym podpisaniu traktatu lizbońskiego. Ale od czegóż fajerwerki i kierowanie uwagi opinii publicznej na plotki, które u nas - z powodu gwałtownie kurczących się możliwości działań rzeczywistych - w coraz większym stopniu zastępują autentyczną politykę?
    Tymczasem medialne fajerwerki, chociaż efektowne i przyciągające uwagę gawiedzi, w polityce znaczą niewiele albo wręcz nic. Rozbłyskają i gasną bezpowrotnie, niczym zbawienne projekty naprawy Rzeczypospolitej, o jakich tyle nasłuchaliśmy się przy każdej kampanii wyborczej. Cóż zatem ma znaczenie? A znaczenie mają niedostrzegalne, geologiczne ruchy poważnych państw, na które mało kto zwraca uwagę. Są one podobne do ruchu lodowców, który w gruncie rzeczy trudno zauważyć. Taki lodowiec wprawdzie sprawia wrażenie nieruchomego, jednak się porusza. Bardzo powoli, centymetr po centymetrze, jednak w ten pełzający ruch milionów ton lodu zaangażowane są siły tak potężne, że to właśnie one wypiętrzają góry, żłobią doliny, moreny czołowe, boczne i denne, słowem - to one właśnie kształtują przyszłe krajobrazy, przyszłe oblicze ziemi. Tymczasem organizatorzy opinii publicznej w Polsce pragnęliby wszystkim wmówić, że ani lodowiec, ani jego ruch, którego właściwie wcale nie ma, nie są ważne, bo najważniejsze są fikołki, jakie na tym lodowcu wyprawia wesołe towarzystwo, spierające się w gruncie rzeczy już tylko o różnicę łajdactwa. I wielu ludzi nie tylko w to wierzy, ale nawet się w te spory emocjonalnie angażuje do tego stopnia, że gotowa jest służyć wesołemu towarzystwu za mięso armatnie. Tymczasem lodowiec na fikające na nim wesołe towarzystwo zupełnie nie zwraca uwagi; popychany potężną siłą, centymetr po centymetrze posuwa się ku swemu celowi. Jest blisko, coraz bliżej i bardziej spostrzegawczy zaczynają już odczuwać jego śmiertelny chłód.

    On February 8, 2006 officers of the Polish ABW (Agencja Bezpieczenstwa Wewnetrznego - Internal Security Agency) arrived at the offices of J&S Energy S.A Company (a Polish

    J&S Energy logo
    subsidiary of the J&S Group Ltd) in Warsaw. The local media was ecstatic following the “raid” as the accusations reverberating around the scandal by the official, ex-official and mostly anonymous sources were bombastic. The company was allegedly called "The Russian FSB creature", a tool for taking over the Polish oil market. Its owners were represented as Russian citizens – agents. Zbigniew Wassermann, Chairman of the Polish Sejm Commission for the Special Services, told the media that the offices were raided following data received in the case of PKN Orlen. He added there were serious suspicions that J&S turned the oil supply to Poland from Russia into a monopoly and alleged that commissions were paid to politicians and officials who helped the company reach its present position and avoid paying taxes. Poland's former intelligence chief,

    Zbigniew Wassermann
    Zbigniew Siemiatkowski, was even more critical, saying the company was connected to the Russian secret services through a member of the Board of directors of the Russian Inter RAO Unified Energy Systems, Vladimir Alganov, a former SVR and KGB chief agent in Poland, who already had tried to bribe Polish businessmen in the past. And another media, the Russian one, was full of reports on the ABW raid. It quoted different anonymous Polish sources, noting that the owners of J&S preferred to stay in the shadows, never meet the press or photographers, and managed to keep stable the turnover of the company at $2 billion. Strangely enough no official or non-official reaction to the claims of FSB-KGB involvement was published. Despite very tense relations between Russia and Poland the case was interpreted as a local Polish corruption case, and other scandals were mentioned as background. Maybe this became one of the reasons to believe that the raid had the strange scent of a set up, as it turned out, for example, that Polish journalists were informed of it and awaited the arrival of the secret services near the office.

    The Other Side of the Story

    We contacted Rafal Kasprow, the managing partner for MDI Strategic Solutions, which represents J&S Energy S.A Company, to hear another side of the story, which turned out to be even more interesting. First of all, he showed us that over 90% of the information published about the “raid” was bogus. “The search” in the J&S Energy S.A. office was not related to the so-called “case of PKN Orlen”. The Polish Agency for Internal Security (ABW), acting upon a request from the Cracow prosecution office conducting an investigation unrelated to J&S, entered the J&S Energy S.A. office to verify the existence of trade documents related to transactions with third parties being subject to such investigations, and to hand over any such documentation. Neither J&S Energy S.A., nor its employees are suspects in the aforementioned investigation. The investigation does not concern the alleged “J&S monopoly”, or “commissions” paid to politicians, or the company’s “tax evasion”. The Prosecution Office in Cracow investigates some other companies, (none of which is related in any way to the J&S Group) that are suspected of illegal practices in the sales of petrol.

    Zbigniew Siemiatkowski
    As Mr. Kasprow underlined, there are no cases instigated against J&S and its subsidiaries anywhere around the world. Also there is no case and no investigation against it in Poland. But there is a war between the local "fuel mafia" and the Company, which is the leading one in the Polish market. And the other side is using rumors to spread misleading information and lies through the media, as the journalists who publish them claim that their sources are anonymous.

    Kasprow: "We are talking about small companies, evading taxes, blending fuels, bribing. They have been our opponents for several years. There is an investigation into these companies (totaling 1263, note the AIA sources in Poland ), and not against us. We are cooperating with the authorities, we promote the Polish economy, constantly improving our services – we have had 40 % improvement through the last years in the fuel market. Our activity destroys these criminal mafia groups…"

    AIA: But it seems that these groups have some sort of protection from the higher ranks of authority. How they can use state secret services to fight J&S as happened the last time? Who are those who send these secret services to haunt the company?

    Kasprow: If you study a bit about this "fuel mafia" you can see that its roots are in the secret services. They have very good connections with the military secret service. There were several articles in the local press describing relations between Military Intelligence (WSI, Wojskowa S³u¿ba Informacyjna, which was recently reformed and split in two because of corruption - AIA) and the "fuel mafia". As we are increasing the sales of oil products, we are harming their interests, so the level of confrontation is rising. I will reiterate that we have no connection to this mafia and to the cases, which are being investigated today. It is the mafia that does not pay taxes, not the J&S. These allegations are empty as only last year J&S Energy SA paid the Polish Treasury over 1 billion PLN in taxes.

    AIA: But can you throw in some names? Who is behind these people? Zbigniew Siemiatkowski?

    Kasprow: Oh yes, Mr. Siemiatkowski is one of them. He was behind this PKN Orlen case, when he sent secret service agents in 2002 to illegally arrest the President of this company to prevent him from signing a deal with J&S. He had a personal interest in that. Mr. Zbigniew Siemiatkowski inspired several media attacks and personally and repeatedly slandered J&S Group and its founding shareholders in public. We have set up a legal case against him, and we intend to win it. Mr. Zbigniew Siemiatkowski has discredited himself as a politician, civil servant and a man of honor. He was not only unable to substantiate the charges - the Investigating Committee of the Polish Sejm found them to be groundless (see below -AIA) - but as a result of the Committee’s investigation ( (document nr. 4430), he is himself now the subject of several cases, which the Committee formally referred to the Prosecutor’s Office. As a result of its proceedings, the State Prosecutor has already presented several criminal charges against Siemiatkowski.

    AIA: And what about these allegations of the Russian secret services involvement that came up? And why not, let us say, German, for example? The Russian media was very active, describing the case. What is the connection? Maybe it’s because Mr. S³awomir Smo³okowski and Mr. Grzegorz Jankilewicz – the heads of the company, originally came from the Soviet Union?

    Kasprow: These allegations are pure fiction. The sources of the allegations are, as always happens, anonymous; it is impossible to find out who said what! And as for the Soviet roots of Mr. Slawomir Smolokowski and Mr. Grzegorz Jankilewicz – they have roots in Poland! They are Jewish by origin, their families escaped the Holocaust and came to the USSR. They both were born in the Soviet Union, they were musicians and in the mid eighties they left for Poland, escaping the Soviet regime. They both got married here, became citizens and opened a business – dealing in electronics and clothing. They thrived on it and entered the oil business, again starting from a small company, which has grown rather quickly. They never were "Russian citizens", and it is impossible to charge them with being agents of the regime they escaped! Mr. Smo³okowski and Mr. Jankilewicz have never met Mr. Vladimir Alganov. J&S Group has never had any formal or informal relations with this person. Besides, all this fuss that the owners of J&S allegedly prefer to stay in shadows, and never meet with the press, are totally baseless. They gave interviews to the biggest Polish dailies and magazines, such as Polityka, Rzeczpospolita and others. Anyone can easily find their photos on the Internet…

    AIA: Do You see any connection between this search in the J&S offices and the recently published Polish initiative on power security for Europe?

    Kasprow: You see, our case is at least 3-4 years old, and as for a new initiative of the Polish government – it is rather new, so I don't see any obvious connection.

    The Real Puppeteers?

    After the interview with Mr. Kasprow we turned to our sources in Poland to find out more about the case, as the issue of Russian secret services involvement still seemed very disturbing to us. Our sources were almost unanimous on the issue, underlining that they do see a connection, but they see it differently than the Polish media ”sources”. First of all, the pattern of using rumors to accuse opponents into cooperating with them, seemed very familiar to those who previosly had a sad expirience of conflict with the KGB and its modern successors. “It is one of the usual tricks in the book - to hide your own agents, blacken your opponents with hints that they are working for you. It worked perfectly in the years of Communist rule against opposition movements, as their leaders were rumored to be the KGB’s informers or provocateurs. Today it is apparently being used against independent companies abroad, especially those in the oil industry – “the new weapon of the Russian regime”, one of our sources said. The other sources note that the corrupted Polish Military intelligence service, WSI, which was recently dismantled and split into two services, always claimed to have “friendly relations” with its Russian colleagues in the secret services. And the corruption of this service was one of the key issues in this cooperation. It must be noted that, as AIA reported, two days after the search at the J&S office, the Warsaw-based daily Zycie Warszawy in its issue dated February 10 wrote that a special commission on intelligence services was willing to reveal certain allegedly illegal activities by the Service of Military Information. According to the daily, issues of financial means collected in the WSI bank accounts and servicemen employed in different private companies are among the major issues to be reviewed by the commission. Zycie Warszawy reminds us that at least a few dozen of the WSI agents are working for private and state-owned companies; many of them after retirement have been using their operational contacts to get jobs in strategic companies and promote their own interests by supervising the companies selling armaments and ammunition. One of the commission members told the paper that they have received signals on illegal financial operations under WSI cover. The Commission is planning to get access to the data on spending through the so-called WSI Operational fund that has been used to finance the establishment of companies that have had nothing in common with the military and actually served WSI money laundering purposes. Zycie Warszawy emphasized the fact that nobody is willing to speak on the subject officially.
    Also it must be noted that Polish Military Intelligence reform, which was initiated by the new President, Lech Kaczynski, was supported by the political elite of the country including the opposition. Civic Platform (Platforma Obywatelska) party leader Jan Rokita, said that he thought no one would be able to face this "Communist camarilla", which grew stronger than the leadership of the country. All of the above substantiates the points of the J&S Energy representative.

    PKN Orlen, J&S and the Polish Secret Services

    PKN Orlen

    The story would not be complete without a background on the previous scandal and its investigation, mentioned by Mr. Kasprow. On 7 February 2002, Andrzej Modrzejewski, President of PKN Orlen S.A. at that time, was arrested by armed officers of the Office for National Protection UOP (special security services, currently called Agency for Internal Security – ABW), and detained for over ten hours. The official reason for his detention was a case unrelated to PKN Orlen S.A. The detention caused his absence from a previously scheduled meeting of the Supervisory Board of PKN Orlen S.A. As a result of his detention and absence from the Supervisory Board meeting, Andrzej Modrzejewski was dismissed from the position of President of the Management Board. He was replaced in that position by Zbigniew Wrobel who, according to media information, had close ties to the circle of politicians instrumental in instigating Andrzej Modrzejewski’s arrest. The day before the above events, on 6 February 2002, a meeting between Prime Minister Leszek Miller and some key members of his government was held at Mr. Miller’s office at the Council of Ministers. Besides Prime Minister Leszek Miller himself, the Minister of the State Treasury, Wiesaw Kaczmarek, Minister of Justice Barbara Piwnik, and the Head of the Office for National Protection, Zbigniew Siemiatkowski, attended the meeting. At this meeting, according to the findings of the Investigation Commission, a decision was taken on the unlawful arrest of the President of PKN Orlen S.A. Both the detention of Modrzejewski as well as the decision-making process regarding his arrest constituted the main subject of a review conducted by the Sejm (Lower House of the Polish Parliament) Investigation Commission. Two years after the above referenced meeting that took place in the Office of the Council of Ministers, on 2 April 2004, Wiesaw Kaczmarek, former Minister of the State Treasury (and participant in that meeting), in an interview for the Polish daily Gazeta Wyborcza revealed the background of the arrest of A. Modrzejewski that occurred in February 2002. Kaczmarek alleged that Prime Minister Leszek Miller personally arranged the unlawful detention of A. Modrzejewski as well as sanctioned the use of the Office of National Protection to this end – headed at the time by Zbigniew Siemiatkowski, another participant in the meeting of 6 February 2002. The real aim of these activities was to “appoint” a person who had friendly relations with the abovementioned group of politicians to the post of President of PKN Orlen S.A. In response to the allegations of Kaczmarek, Prime Minister Miller declared that the real aim of the arrest of A. Modrzejewski was to prevent him from signing a contract with J&S, which was purportedly represented as a threat to the national energy security. Soon afterwards all other participants of that meeting during which the arrest of Andrzej Modrzejewski was decided, adopted the same line of defense. As a result, primarily due to the statements of the former head of the Office for National Protection, Zbigniew Siemiatkowski, a lot of false information about J&S, including a great deal of misinformation about the shareholders of J&S and the J&S role in the petroleum markets, began to appear in the Polish media. On 20 April 2004, after clarification proceedings, the Security Services Commission declared that the head of the Office for National Protection, Zbigniew Siemiatkowski, “misled the Commission” with regard to the circumstances surrounding the arrest of the President of PKN Orlen S.A. The Commission was not convinced by the explanations provided by Siemiatkowski in this regard. The final conclusions reached by the Investigation Commission have confirmed beyond any doubt that the strategy used for many months by the persons responsible for the arrest of the President of PKN Orlen S.A., was a deliberate way of protecting their own personal interests and justifying their illegal activities surrounding this arrest, and was based on the creation of an alleged threat posed by J&S to Poland’s national energy security.

    Waxman: "It may well turn out to be the largest war profiteering in history."

    A BBC investigation estimates that around $23bn (£11.75bn) may have been lost, stolen or just not properly accounted for in Iraq.

    The BBC's Panorama programme has used US and Iraqi government sources to research how much some private contractors have profited from the conflict and rebuilding.

    A US gagging order is preventing discussion of the allegations.

    The order applies to 70 court cases against some of the top US companies.

    War profiteering

    While Presdient George W Bush remains in the White House, it is unlikely the gagging orders will be lifted.

    To date, no major US contractor faces trial for fraud or mismanagement in Iraq.

    The president's Democratic opponents are keeping up the pressure over war profiteering in Iraq.

    Henry Waxman, who chairs the House committee on oversight and government reform, said: "The money that's gone into waste, fraud and abuse under these contracts is just so outrageous, it's egregious.

    "It may well turn out to be the largest war profiteering in history."

    In the run-up to the invasion, one of the most senior officials in charge of procurement in the Pentagon objected to a contract potentially worth $7bn that was given to Halliburton, a Texan company which used to be run by Dick Cheney before he became vice-president.

    Unusually only Halliburton got to bid - and won.

    Missing billions

    The search for the missing billions also led the programme to a house in Acton in west London where Hazem Shalaan lived until he was appointed to the new Iraqi government as minister of defence in 2004.

    Judge Radhi al Radhi: "I believe these people are criminals."He and his associates siphoned an estimated $1.2bn out of the ministry. They bought old military equipment from Poland but claimed for top-class weapons.

    Meanwhile they diverted money into their own accounts.

    Judge Radhi al-Radhi of Iraq's Commission for Public Integrity investigated.

    He said: "I believe these people are criminals.

    "They failed to rebuild the Ministry of Defence, and as a result the violence and the bloodshed went on and on - the murder of Iraqis and foreigners continues and they bear responsibility."

    Mr Shalaan was sentenced to two jail terms but he fled the country.

    He said he was innocent and that it was all a plot against him by pro-Iranian MPs in the government.

    There is an Interpol arrest warrant out for him but he is on the run - using a private jet to move around the globe.

    He stills owns commercial properties in the Marble Arch area of London.

    Po więcej ciekawych filmów zapraszam tutaj: !! PODAJ LINKA DALEJ!

    Film twórców Avi Lewisa i Naomi Klein (autorki antyglobalistycznej książki "No Logo'') opowiada o próbie przejęcia przez pracowników upadłych fabryk po krachu finansowym w Argentynie.

    W wyniku krachu gospodarczego w Argentynie w 2001 roku, najlepiej prosperująca klasa średnia stanęła przed faktem opuszczonych i nierentownych fabryk oraz masowego bezrobocia. Winą za to autorzy filmu i jego bohaterowie obarczają bezwzględną ekspansję globalnego rynku. Na przedmieściach Buenos Aires trzydziestu niezatrudnionych pracowników kieruje się w stronę ich dawnej, obecnie - pustej fabryki. Żądają ponownego uruchomienia maszyn i prawa do pracy. Są oni częścią odważnego nowego ruchu pracowniczego.

    Okupują zbankrutowane przedsiębiorstwa i tworzą miejsca pracy na ruinach upadłego systemu. Lecz przewodniczący i działacze tego ruchu wiedzą, że ich sukces jest jeszcze daleko. Muszą rzucać rękawicę sędziom, policjantom i politykom, którzy mogą ich projektowi zapewnić legalną protekcję lub gwałtownie eksmitować z fabryki.

    Walka robotników rozgrywa się w tle kampanii prezydenckiej, w której głównym kandydatem jest architekt zapaści gospodarczej w Argentynie - Carlos Menem. Jeśli wygra, fabryki wrócą do dawnych właścicieli, dla których znaczą one tyle, co sterta złomu do sprzedania. Robotnicy uzbrojeni tylko w proce i wiarę w demokrację, stają twarzą w twarz z szefami, bankierami i całym systemem.

    W dokumencie "Przejmowanie fabryk", który był pokazywany podczas PLANETE DOC REVIEW w 2005 roku, uderza przede wszystkim prosty dramat życia robotników i ich walka o godność i lepszy byt. Film otrzymał w 2004 roku Nagrodę Amerykańskiego Instytutu Filmowego dla Najlepszego Filmu Dokumentalnego oraz nagrodę publiczności na AFI Fest.

    Jedwabne: The Politics of Apology and Contrition, Defamation. The Price of Poland's Heroism

    Jedwabne: The Politics of Apology and Contrition, Defamation. The Price of Poland's Heroism

    Jedwabne: The Politics of Apology and Contrition, Defamation: The Price of Poland's Heroism
    Presented at the Panel “Jedwabne – A Scientific Analysis”
    Polish Institute of Arts and Sciences in America, Inc.
    Annual Meeting, June 8, 2002

    Georgetown University, Washington DC

    A Historic Narrative

    Today, as we are contemplating the tragedy of Jedwabne of sixty years ago, it is a bitter irony to see what has been called the "politics of apology and contrition" being used by post-communist leaders in an attempt to re-write the historical record. This irony is particularly cruel to my generation of Polish survivors of Nazi and Soviet terror.

    It is entirely fitting and proper that Mr. Miller, the Prime Minister of Poland, remember with reverence the sufferings of Jewish people in Poland and elsewhere. It is not appropriate, however, to falsely implicate innocent nation for the crime of Jedwabne, and to exonerate German perpetrators, by convenient selective memory of the historical facts, and in process to obscure the crimes of the communist party.

    The great heroic deeds of Poland of the 20th century benefited the entire world. Such was the derailing of Lenin's world revolution based on the Moscow- Berlin axis in 1920 as well as derailing of Hitler's strategy for domination of the entire world in 1939. Poland's heroism lived on in the wartime combat of Polish soldiers, airmen, and seamen, as well as Europe's largest resistance movement and the very existence of the Polish underground state under enemy occupation. Polish armed resistance continued during the postwar years of pacification by the Soviet terror apparatus.

    After World War I the Poles declared their independence on Nov. 11, 1918. To keep their independence, the Poles had to win borderland wars. By far the most important was the Polish victory, led by Marshal Józef Pilsudski, over Lenin's Red Army in 1920. Lenin had attempted to overrun Poland and form a Moscow-Berlin alliance in order to stage a worldwide communist revolution. Germans resented their defeat in World War I; at the time millions of Germans were ready to accept a communist government in return for the re-annexation of western and northern Poland, once those lands would be occupied by the Soviets. The Polish victory deprived Lenin of a chance for a worldwide revolution. The Soviets then retaliated with terror and eventually murdered more Polish nationals than did the Germans, during the World War II, in 1939-1941. In the Spring of 1940 alone the NKVD executed 21,857 members of Polish leadership community. About four-fifths of all victims were betrayed to the NKVD by local leftists mostly of Jewish background.

    In 1939 Poland again decisively shaped world's history, as Germany and Japan had signed the Anti-Comintern Pact in 1936 and Japan attacked the USSR in 1938. Hitler, in an advanced stage of Parkinson's disease, was in a hurry to start an anti-Soviet crusade to build his "1,000 year Reich" from Riga to the Black Sea and control world's main oil resources for his "war of the engines." Poland, a physical barrier between Germany and the USSR, was to become an impediment on Hitler's road to the domination of the world.

    Hitler, warned by his generals that Germany had insufficient military manpower for his grandiose schemes, strived in 1935-1939 to have on his side Poland's potential 3,500,000 soldiers. The Berlin government felt that combining German and Polish forces in Europe with Japanese forces in Asia would bring a decisive victory over the USSR German control over the world's main oil fields was essential to secure Hitler world domination.

    The Polish Minister of Foreign Affairs Józef Beck, while following the strategic advice of the late Marshal Pilsudski, held both the Germans and the Soviets at bay as long as it was possible. The Polish refusal in January 1939 to join the Anti-Comintern Pact derailed Hitler's plans and caused him to lose his chance to join Japan in the attack on the USSR. Poland, Great Britain, and France exchanged common defense guarantees on March 31, 1939. Hitler signed Fall Weiss plan on April 11 and ordered the attack on Poland on September 1, 1939.

    On July 25, 1939, Poland gave Great Britain and France each a copy of a linguistic deciphering electro-mechanical device for the German secret military code system Enigma, complete with specifications, perforated cards, and updating procedures. Thanks to the Polish solution for breaking the Enigma, the British project Ultra was able to interpret German secret messages during the entire war of 1939-1945. The invasion of Normandy would not have been possible without it. In 1999, the American code expert David A. Hatch of the Center of Cryptic History, NSA, Fort George G. Meade, Maryland wrote that "the breaking of the Enigma by Poland was one of the cornerstones of Allied victory over Germany."

    As we all know, despite the crucial Polish contributions and sacrifices for the Allies' victory, Poland was betrayed by Roosevelt and Churchill first at Teheran and then at Yalta; it was handed over to become a Soviet satellite state, after a ruthless pacification by the communist terror apparatus which followed German mass executions.

    The Tragedy of Jedwabne Explained by the Evidence of Two Graves and German Archives

    Thus, on July 10, 1941 German executioners collected Jews of Jedwabne in the town square and drove them by physical violence to the site of their murder. First they shot some 50 Jews and then burned alive 250 others (not 1600 or 1800 as inaccurately reported in the American press on the basis of false information published by J. T. Gross who ignored Soviet and other sources as well as German archives in his book Neighbors).

    The executioners of the Einsatztrupen enlisted help of several ethnic Germans (the "Volksdeutche" known as traitors and spies), and a group of primitive and illiterate criminals, both local and from out of town, as well as possibly a few "avengers." The latter must have believed that they and their relatives had suffered murderous persecution by Soviet security officers and deportation to the Gulag because of the betrayal by some of the Jews living in Jedwabne. German executioners forced an additional number of Poles, at gunpoint, with blows of rifle butts, and with threats, to help bring Jewish victims to the town square (the marketplace) ostensibly to clean the pavement.

    According to eyewitnesses still living today, uniformed Germans committed this wartime atrocity. They forced some 300 Jews to march in a mock-funeral procession while carrying a concrete head of Lenin that had been removed from a monument.

    The Germans of the Einsatzgrupen divided the marchers into two groups. The first group consisted of some 50 Jews, men strong enough to put up a fight. The second group was formed from the approximately 250 remaining Jews, mostly old people, women, and children.

    While the second group was held back, the first group was directed into a 62.4 by 23 feet wooden barn. The keys to the barn were confiscated a day earlier by uniformed Germans, who removed agricultural machinery from it and prepared it for the execution of the Jews next day. (The daughter of the owner of the barn repeatedly testified about this facts, most recently on the CBS "60 minutes" on March 24, 2002.)

    The 50 Jewish men were ordered to dig a large grave inside the barn, ostensibly for burying Lenin's concrete head. (J. T. Gross wants his readers to believe that the head of Lenin was buried in the Jewish cemetery.) As the diggers stood near the grave, the Germans shot them and then ordered several Poles to drag into the shallow grave the bodies of the Jews, some slain and some wounded but possibly still alive. Lenin's concrete head was placed on top of the victims in the grave #1. The German executioners then ordered the second, more defenseless, group into the barn, which moments later would be turned into a gigantic funeral pyre.

    Stefan Boczkowski, Roman Chojnowski and five other eyewitnesses reported seeing the following: A small German military truck loaded with soldiers and gasoline canisters quickly pulled up to the barn crowded with Jews. Some of the soldiers jumped down from the truck, and those soldiers staying in the truck handed them the canisters, whose contents they poured on all outer walls of the barn. The flames engulfed the barn at once. Pyrotechnic analysis indicates that the Germans used approximately 100 gallons (over 400 liters) of gasoline to soak some 1000 square ft. of walls of the barn in order to engulf all of it with fire, burn it and in process suffocate the victims (by inhalation of the hot smoke). Later (reportedly the next day) the Germans ordered Poles at gunpoint to bury the partly burned bodies emanating a horrible odor. Remains of about 250 victims were buried in the grave #2 located along the barn (the high content of water in human bodies requires temperature of some 800 degrees Centigrade for more than thirty minutes in order to obtain a complete cremation).

    At that time there was no gasoline available to the local population of Jedwabne (only a small amount of hydrocarbons in form of kerosene for lamps was available to the rural population). Such small amounts of kerosene (as mentioned by J. T. Gross) with its flashpoint of about 50 degrees Centigrade could not produce a sudden fire to engulf the entire barn at once.

    In the 2001 investigation by the Polish government bodies of the victims of the July 10, 1941 massacre were found buried in the graves #1 and #2. Thorough search and drilling some 170 test cores in the vicinity found no other graves of the 1941 massacre of the Jews in Jedwabne; however, at the request of an Orthodox Rabbi who objected, rigorous forensic studies and full exhumation of all victims and the determination by autopsy of causes of death of every one of them was prematurely terminated. Thus, only an approximate number of victims could be estimated by the size of the two graves. Unfortunately these unanswered questions inevitably discredit the veracity of the final report of the official investigation by the Polish government's agency, the Institute of National Memory (IPN).

    The veracity of Grosses book and the film Neighbors is further compromised by a baseless, non-corroborated claim that a cut off head of a Jewish female was kicked around in Jedwabne. Jerzy Robert Nowak, the author of the book 100 Lies By Gross (published in Poland) claims that after its publication he determined additional factual errors in Neighbors.

    "The book of Prof. Gross can not be considered as a serious scholarly work: it is rather a tendentious propagandistic pamphlet. He jumps to farfetched conclusions before examining the existing evidence." wrote to the New York Times M. K. Dziewanowski, Professor of History, author of: History of Soviet Russia, 5th edition, Prentice Hall, 1996.

    As Alexander B. Rossino, historian at the Holocaust Museum in Washington, D.C. writes in an article to be printed in Polin, Volume 16, 2003:

    "The evidence collected by the West Germans, including the positive identification of [Hauptsturmfuehrer Herman] Schaper by witnesses from Lomza, Tykocin, and Radzilów, suggested that it was indeed Schaper's men who carried out the killings in those locations. Investigators also suspected, based on the similarity of the methods used to destroy the Jewish communities of Radzilów, Tykocin, Rutki, Zambrów, Jedwabne, Piatnica, and Wizna between July and September 1941 that Schaper's men were the perpetrators... The method used to kill the Jews of Jedwabne was exactly the same that had been employed by the Gestapo [Einsatsgrupen] to kill the Jews of Radzilow only three days earlier."

    During the initial investigation of 1964, German investigator Opitz in Ludwigsburg, Germany, concluded that Hauptsturmfuerer Hermann Schaper's Einsatskommando conducted the mass execution of Jews in Jedwabne. Nonetheless, Schaper gave conflicting answers to his interrogators. First, he lied that in 1941 he had been a truck driver and he used false names. Later he claimed to have been an administrative officer, and another time a hunter of double agents, when the Gestapo was busy finding and killing communist commissars and Jews.

    Court documents at Ludwigsburg archives show that the chief of the German civilian administration in the Nazi occupied Lomza district, Count van der Groeben testified that Schaper conducted mass executions of Jews in his district, which included the town of Jedwabne. That notwithstanding, legal proceedings against Schaper were terminated Sept. 2, 1965 despite positive identification of the defendant by Jewish survivors of the execution in Radzilow and Tykocin.

    In 1974 Schaper's case was reopened and in 1976 a German court in Giesen, Hessen, pronounced the then 68 year old Schaper guilty, together with four other members of the kommando SS Zichenau-Schroettersburg, of executions of Poles and Jews. Schaper was sentenced to a six-year prison, but was soon released for medical reasons. (The facts of Schaper's dossier are quoted from article by Thomas Urban, reporter of the Suddeutsche Zeitung; Polish text in Rzeczpospolita, Sept 1-2, 2001.)

    To make any legal sense now in 2002 the Polish Government should have demanded either the extradition or deposition under oath of Schaper by a German court and not an interview which has no legal meaning and can not give legally binding information. However, the Polish government's agency IPN gave the press a report that "Hauptsturmfuehrer Hermann Schaper confirmed known facts."

    An Evil Empire and the "Politics of Apology and Contrition"

    President Reagan was right: Soviet Union was "an evil empire," with its communist party that ruled, among other places in the Soviet sphere of influence, Poland with an iron fist for half a century. Now, with a shiny new name of "the Leftist Democratic Union (SLD)," new apologists for the old communist past are starting to act like new emperors, blaming the nation for the crimes of their communist predecessors of the former evil empire. Let me proclaim: these new emperors have no clothes!

    You see, Mr. Miller, like the current president of Poland, Mr. Kwasniewski, has an ax to grind. They are both former high officials of the communist party. Yes, this was the party of the same communists whose NKVD security forces, the mainstay of the Soviet terror apparatus, staged the Kielce pogrom in 1946.

    At that time Ostap Dluski, the head of the department of foreign affairs of the Central Committee of the Communist Party (PPR), wrote on September 25, 1946 a personal letter to Stanislaw Skrzeszewski, the Polish communist ambassador in Paris, ordering him to carefully plan, organize, and finance with state funds a defamation campaign for the purpose of generating in France a wide- spread condemnation of the "Polish perpetrators" of the Kielce pogrom.

    On one hand the NKVD was staging pogroms in all satellite states in order to drive out of East-Central some 700,000 Jews. Those that would arrive to Palestine were to abolish the British mandate there and to foment Jewish-Arab wars in order to interfere with the flow of oil to the west. On the other hand the communist propaganda used the accusation of Polish anti-Semitism to "justify" the need for a protracted stay of the Red Army in Poland long after the war was over. Similarly, the present Polish president and the prime minister distribute internationally the propaganda of the responsibility of the Polish nation for the crime of Jedwabne to obscure communist crimes in Poland.

    Mr. Miller and Mr. Kwasniewski are apologists for, the same communists who persecuted Jews in Poland in 1968 under the orders of Jiri Andropov then the head of the Soviet terror apparatus. They are the same communists who oppressed the Polish people for half a century. And they managed to extend their dominance even today.

    So what is an ambitious post-communist to do about such an evil and embarrassing past? Why not blame these crimes not on the communist leaders who carried them out, but on the people subjugated by those leaders. That appears to be the strategy embodied by the "politics of apology and contrition," as practiced in Poland today. One of the latest manifestations of this was on January 10, 2002, when Mr. Miller spoke to the conference of presidents of major Jewish organizations in New York. He betrayed the Polish citizens whom he is supposed to represent by apologizing on the international scene in the name of the Polish nation for crimes committed by the communists and the Nazis.

    Mr. Miller and Mr. Kwasniewski are trying to establish that the Polish people were the exterminators of Jews in Poland, while first the Nazis and then the Soviet-installed communist leadership stood around as innocent and helpless bystanders. It is a bizarre behavior for a president and a prime minister of Poland to insist and broadcast to the world that the Polish nation, when under the brutal subjugation of the Nazis, is responsible for the killing of a community of Jews in Jedwabne.

    Mr. Kwasniewski, as the current president of Poland, issued his apology during the inquiry into the crime of Jedwabne by an agency of the Polish department of justice thereby violating the independence of the judiciary. For domestic consumption he worded his apology as his personal and in the name of those who want to apologize. However, people throughout the world understood that the president of Poland accepted the full responsibility of the Polish nation for the crime in Jedwabne with all the consequences of the international law.

    In order to strengthen the international propaganda effect of the presidential apology the followers of the post-communist leadership now make public acts of contrition and confess publicly to their personal feeling of guilt and remorse and say that they feel permanently tainted by the allegedly Polish crime of Jedwabne, in spite of the fact that because of their age they could not have had any experience of the terror in wartime Poland. These acts of fake contrition contribute to disorientation in America, where people often believe that Poland fought on the side of Hitler; especially, after they participated in the obligatory Holocaust Studies, in which the role of the Jewish Ghetto Police and Administration serving Gestapo is omitted.

    The Nazis, according J. T. Gross, unsuccessfully tried to save some of the Jewish victims in Jedwabne, but he insists, that the locals would not let them. Blaming the Polish people for both Nazi-and Soviet-era atrocities against Jews attempts to complete the picture of a hopelessly evil Polish populace - picture that is a familiar sight on American television and in the movies, in which Poles and Poland have had the worst image of all central European nationalities. This also is a picture that is grotesque in its wickedness, transparent in its self-serving post-communist motive, and it is a falsehood in contradiction to the facts that cannot stand against the historical test of time.

    Unfortunately the dominant liberal and post-communist press in Poland frequently falsely reported and distorted many known facts. This widespread phenomenon resulted in an addition to the Polish vocabulary of a new word "przeklamanie" meaning "media lies."

    In Jedwabne the local reaction to the current investigation of the crime is full of distrust. It is said that when the investigators dug up the first three skulls, they found in each of them a bullet hole. Apparently about at that point the investigators stopped the exhumation under the pretext that two Rabbis objected to further disturbance of the remains. Now it appears to many people in Jedwabne that bullet holes in these skulls were not what investigators were looking for. The decision to stop the exhumation and forensic studies disqualifies the entire investigation of this horrible crime. "The truth is, to be sure, sometimes hard to grasp, but it is never so illusive as when it is not wanted" (as remarked by Herman H. Dinsmore, All the News That Fits, Arlington House, 1969).

    At the present time practically all the forensic evidence remains buried. Under these circumstances the only remedy is to complete the forensic exhumation of the two graves and the surrounding area in order to properly document the murders of Jedwabne as Dr. Moor-Jankowski explained in the preceding presentation.

Taught descriptive geometry at the University of Tennessee;

    in 1955 graduated with M.S. degree in Industrial Engineering.

    in 1955 started working for Shell Oil Company in New Orleans. After one year of managerial training was assigned to design of marine structures for drilling and production of petroleum.

    in 1960 started working for Texaco Research and Development in Houston, Texas as a Project Engineer. Authored total of 50 American and foreign patents on marine structures for the petroleum industry;
    wrote an article: The Rise and Fall of the Polish Commonwealth - A Quest for a Representative Government in Central and Eastern Europe in the 14th to 18th Centuries. Started to work on a Tabular History of Poland.

    in 1972 moved to Blacksburg, Virginia. During the following years worked as Consulting Engineer for Texaco, also taught in Virginia Polytechnic Institute and State University as Adjunct Professor in the College of Civil Engineering teaching courses on marine structures of the petroleum industry. Designed and supervised the construction of a hill top home for his family, also bought 500 acre ranch (near Thomas Jefferson National Forest) where he restored 200 years old mill house on a mountain stream.

    in 1978 prepared Polish-English, English-Polish Dictionary with complete phonetics, published by Hippocrene Books Inc. The dictionary included a Tabular History of Poland, Polish Language, People, and Culture as well as Pogonowski's phonetic symbols for phonetic transcriptions in English and Polish at each dictionary entry; the phonetic explanations were illustrated with cross-sections of speech (organs used to pronounce the sounds unfamiliar to the users). It was the first dictionary with phonetic transcription at each Polish entry for use by English speakers

The Atlas was published by Hippocrene Books Inc. and later by Dorset Press of the Barnes and Noble Co. Inc. which sends some 30 million catalogues to American homes including color reproduction of book covers. Thus, many Americans were exposed to the cover of Pogonowski's Atlas showing the range of borders of Poland during the history - many found out for the firsttime that Poland was an important power in the past. Total of about 30,000 atlases were printed so far.

    In 1988 the publication of Poland: A Historical Atlas resulted in a number of invitations extended by several Polonian organizations to Iwo Pogonowski to present Television Programs on Polish History. Pogonowski responded and produced over two year period 220 half-hour video programs in his studio at home (and at his own expense.) These programs formed a serial entitled: Poland, A History of One Thousand Years. Total of over 1000 broadcasts of these programs were transmitted by cable television in Chicago, Detroit-Hamtramck, Cleveland, and Blacksburg.
