Israeli Opposition Calls for Recalling Poland Ambassador Amid Holocaust Bill Row

Holocaust Bill Row poland
Israeli opposition leader Isaac Herzog urged Prime Minister Benjamin Netanyahu to recall the country’s ambassador to Poland Anna Azari after the Polish lawmakers adopted a bill, banning attempts to impose blame on the Poles for crimes against humanity committed by Nazi Germany during World War II, including mass murder of Jews.

The legislation, approved by the Polish parliament’s lower house on Friday, was condemned by the Israeli leadership, accusing authors of the legislation of attempting to change historical truth. Netanyahu said on Saturday, that he had instructed Azari to hold talks with Polish Prime Minister Mateusz Morawiecki for expressing Israeli opposition to the law.

"I am calling on Israeli Prime Minister and Foreign Minister Benjamin Netanyahu to recall the Israeli ambassador in Poland for holding consultations concerning the law adopted by Poland. The law is unacceptable, in our point of view," Herzog, who chairs the opposition Labor Party, said late on Saturday.

Other Israeli opposition politicians, including ex-Foreign Minister Tzipi Livni, and Yesh Atid, the former finance minister, also voiced criticism over the Polish bill.
