Oversimplification of the matter

Reader comment on item: Faisal Shahzad, Jihadi, Explains Terrorism
in response to reader comment: Poland had a terrible long history of anti-Semitism before the World War II and is still.

The dislike towards the Jews nowadays stems from the fact that they collaborated with communist regime and rose to prominence thanks to that - yes, there was the exodus, but it was a rabble created among the communists mostly: many of the emmigrants used to belong to the People's Army of Poland and the "ruling" general Moczar at the time was an anti-semite + add to that a little bit of "need" to air the ranks and there you have it: an exodus.

Of course I oversimplify it, but so do you.
