“I don’t. Except I didn’t say Poland was responsible for the Holocaust. In a way I wish very much that I hadn’t mentioned any countries because it’s distracted some folks from my point....”Translation: If I didn't mention Poland they wouldn't even know I was talking about them. So, no apology.
The Jerusalem Post: “His intention was positive and good. However, even an unintended distortion of history is nonetheless a distortion of history and disrespectful to the Polish nation.We demand apology or resignation, or both, or dismissal, because of his long silence.
To lump Poland with Germany as the same is false and hurtful [and] his use of words was imprecise and [could be] easily misunderstood to be a distortion of historical facts.”
