Poland's President Expected to Make Statement on Holocaust Bill on Tuesday

He also said he was "honored".

Poland's Foreign Minister, Jacek Czaputowicz, ruled out that possibility, saying under "Polish law and the legal system, this is impossible and we want to share this knowledge with our partners in Israel". But a Polish government spokeswoman said Warsaw had canceled Bennet's visit. If it is enacted, violators could be punished with up to three years in prison.

Duda has less than three weeks to sign into law or reject the Holocaust speech bill.

"We thought that given the circumstances, it would be best to push off the visit", Daniels told Breitbart Jerusalem in a telephone conversation from Warsaw.

Bennett said only a small number of Poles risked their lives to save Jews during the war.

Bennett reiterated the same message in his statement on Monday.

"It is extremely important for me that we, like the Poles, are not mentioned as participants in the Holocaust". Death camps established under the Nazi occupation on Polish territory were used to kill millions of people, many of them brought from other European nations.

"There was no systemic participation by the Polish state, which did not exist, or by any Polish institutions in the German industry of death", said Duda.

The largest group, recorded as "Righteous among the Nations" at the Israel's Yad Vashem memorial, includes 6,532 Polish citizens who helped rescue Jews.

Pakistan, Afghanistan agree to continue talks on joint action plan
The first meeting of the Pakistan-Afghanistan Joint Working Groups will be held in Kabul on Saturday, an official said. He said Foreign Secretary has explained that instead of blame game both sides should engage in concrete cooperation.

"This is the truth". "I accepted an invitation to a dialogue based on truth, the Polish Government chose to avoid this truth".

"The adopted legislative changes contradict the content and spirit of strategic partnership between Ukraine and the Republic of Poland, as well as the principles agreed upon by the parties, among other things, in the Declaration of Memory and Solidarity of October 20, 2016", the statement reads.

Polish Deputy Justice Minister Patryk Jaki later referred to Israeli reactions as "proof of how necessary this bill is".

"I think that the bill is precise and does not require a change".

Polish politicians have expressed bafflement at the Israeli response. "It is not credible to engage in the denial", Hoenlein said, according to the Associated Press.

Poland is the location of several former concentration campus, including Auschwitz-Birkenau, where 1 million people - nearly all of them Jews - were systematically killed in World War II.

However, he added that "many parts of the law that could be open to interpretation" and he invited Bennett for that reason, hoping that such a visit could lead to the bill's amendment.

Incidentally, the campaign objecting to the use of this historical lie was started by the former Polish administration, so this is not considered a partisan issue in Poland.

Moreover, whilst the concentration camps were the site where Jewish people were killed in the millions, the murdering of Poles of Christian and other denominations (numbering in the hundreds of thousands) should not be discounted or forgotten.
