Israel: Netanyahu slams Polish bill, discusses Putin meeting

Israeli Prime Minister Benjamin Netanyahu voiced strong opposition to a draft bill passed by Poland's lower house on Friday that would prohibit the Polish nation from being blamed for complicity in the Holocaust. Speaking at a cabinet meeting in Jerusalem on Sunday, Netanyahu said: «we will not accept any attempt whatsoever to rewrite history. We will accept no restriction on research into... Еще historical truth. He stated that “during the week, the ambassador and her staff will hold contacts on this issue with the entire Polish leadership, including the prime minister, the president and the Senate.» The prime minister also referred to his upcoming meeting with Russian President Vladimir Putin in Moscow. “I will discuss with him various regional developments, enhanced security coordination between the IDF and the Russian military forces in Syria and a series of issues that are important — very important — for Israel's security,» Netanyahu said. On Friday, the lower house of the Polish Parliament voted in favour of a bill that would fine or imprison those who used phrases such as “Polish death camps” to refer to Nazi German killing sites in Poland during World War Two. Attributing complicity in the Holocaust to the «Polish nation» would also be outlawed under the proposed law. The legislation still needs the approval of Poland's Senate and the country’s president.
