Acknowledging Poland's Gesture

April 15, 1990

In your editorial the gratitude expressed by the writer to Poland's Prime Minister Tadeusz Mazowiecki could be compared to the stroking of a child and whipping him, all at the same time.

The acknowledgement of the noble gesture of making available Polish airline LOT for emigration of Soviet Jews to Israel is mixed in the same sentences with all alleged past wrongs of Poland.

Before the Solidarity movement Poland used to get only bad press in writings about Polish-Jewish relations. Now it is changing. A noble act of the Polish government is used as a springboard for bringing up and ventilating the old and unjustified charges.
