Original article in German:
Die deutsche Menschenrechtlerin Rebecca Sommer, die zuvor aktiv die Migrationspolitik von Bundeskanzlerin Angela Merkel unterstützte, will nun nach Polen ausreisen. Für Deutschland sei es bereits zu spät, erläuterte sie im Interview mit der polnischen Online-Zeitung „Do Rzeczy“.
Zuvor habe sie gedacht, dass die Migranten aus der Hölle geflohen seien und man sie in Deutschland aufnehmen müsse. Mit 300 weiteren Freiwilligen habe sie Deutschunterricht erteilt und den Neuankömmlingen geholfen, sich in die für sie neue Gesellschaft zu integrieren.
Eigenen Aussagen zufolge hat Sommer gehofft, dass die „mittelalterlichen Ansichten der Araber sich mit der Zeit ändern müssen“, aber bald musste die Frau begreifen, dass „die muslimischen Flüchtlinge mit einem deutlich anderem Wertesystem aufgewachsen sind, von Kindheit an der religiösen Gehirnwäsche unterzogen wurden und überhaupt keinen Wunsch haben, sich an das westliche Leben zu adaptieren“.Unter anderem hätten die Migranten Sommer mit „Arroganz und Verachtung“ behandelt. In Gesprächen unter sich hätten sie die Frau eine „dumme deutsche Schlampe“ genannt. Aus diesem Grund hätten die Freiwilligen leise ihre Stellen gekündigt.
Earlier in the week, Poland’s Senate approved the bill criminalizing any accusations against Poland of complicity in war crimes during World War II, including the Holocaust, prompting Israeli backlash.
The Israeli Foreign Ministry has called on Poland to postpone the visit by its National Security Bureau chief Pawel Soloch amid tensions over Warsaw’s Holocaust bill, Haaretz reported.
The Polish official was due to arrive in Israel next week, however, Tel Aviv expects a “symbolic delay” of several weeks. In particular, Soloch was due to visit a national memorial commemorating Holocaust victims.
In their turn, Polish officials have voiced hope that “dialogue on security issues of strategic importance for both countries will continue in the near future.”

WARSAW, Poland (AP) — The United States asked Poland to rethink plans to enact proposed legislation regulating Holocaust speech that has sparked a diplomatic dispute with Israel, arguing Wednesday that if it passes it could hurt freedom of speech as well as strategic relationships.
U.S. State Department spokeswoman Neather Nauert voiced her government’s concerns as the Polish Senate was preparing to approve the bill, a step that would put it closer to becoming law. The measure would next need to be signed into law by the president, who supports it.
JERUSALEM (AP) — Prime Minister Benjamin Netanyahu said Sunday night that Israel and Poland have agreed to hold talks seeking to resolve the uproar over proposed Polish legislation that would outlaw blaming Poland for any crimes committed during the Holocaust.
Earlier, Israel’s Foreign Ministry had summoned a Polish envoy to express its displeasure at the bill. But Polish officials dug in their heels, saying the measure was being misinterpreted and its wording would not be changed.
Netanyahu then spoke by phone with Polish Prime Minister Mateusz Morawiecki late Sunday. “The two agreed that teams from the two countries would open an immediate dialogue in order to try to reach understandings regarding the legislation,” Netanyahu’s office said in a statement.
The prime minister said at his weekly Cabinet meeting earlier Sunday that Israel has “no tolerance for the distortion of the truth, the rewriting of history and the denial of the Holocaust.” The lower house of the Polish parliament’s bill calls for prison time for referring to “Polish death camps” and criminalizes the mention of Polish complicity.
WARSAW, Poland (AP) — The United States and Poland on Saturday took a strong stand against a planned gas pipeline linking Russia to Germany, saying it is part of a Kremlin scheme to politicize energy and undermine attempts to make Europe less dependent on Moscow.
U.S. Secretary of State Rex Tillerson and Polish Foreign Minister Foreign Minister Jacek Czaputowicz, after meeting in Warsaw, denounced the pipeline, which would bypass Poland and leave Central Europe vulnerable to Russian pressure.

“Of course the US are upset, they’d got dollar signs in their eyes at the prospect of selling fracking gas to Germany. Money rules everything in America, and Germany got one over on Poland….so much for EU togetherness.”

Poland: Only we decide whether to accept refugees or not https://t.co/9BfSZJUQbw

“The Polish position regarding the relocation of refugees remains unchanged. Only Poland decides whether it is able to accept refugees or not,” stated the Polish government spokeswoman Joanna Kopcińska. “Prime Minister Mateusz Morawiecki will continue the policy of supporting the needy in their home countries,” she added.
“It is Poland who decides whether it is able to accept refugees or not. It is our sovereign decision, which lies in the hands of Poles, not officials who have little in common with Poland and know little about us “- said the government spokeswoman in an interview with the wPolityce.pl.
