Former Polish MP posts anti-Semitic video on YouTube

Leszek Bubel, former MP and presidential candidate has posted an anti-Semitic video on YouTube.

"Longinus Zerwimycka", the new video by Leszek Bubel, which critics say is abundant in anti-Semitic content, has caused widespread outrage among the Jewish community in Poland. The video can be seen on YouTube, as well as on Leszek Bubel's Polish National Party (PPN) website.

"This is anti-Semitism in its most pathetic form. We will not take legal action, as we do not want to make fools of ourselves", said Piotr Kadlcik, head of the Association of Jewish Communes in Poland, quoted by "Rzeczpospolita".

Bubel has already been accused of anti-Semitic remarks. Two years ago he was fined 5,000 zlotys for slandering the Jewish nation by a Warsaw court.
