Thursday evening the St.St. Anthony and Theodosius of Kiev Skete in Odrynki (Poland) was vandalised. Vandals destroyed five hives, some fruit trees. The cross from the dome of the Skete's entrance gate was broken, the main power cord was cut and the Skete's tractor was pushed into a pond.

It was the following act of intolerance in the Podlachian Voievodship in the last few months. Synagogues in Orla and Krynki and Lithuanian language road signs (communities with 20%+ residences of ethnic minorities are allowed in the EU to have road signs if their own languages) in Puńsk and the monument commemorating the Jews murdered by the Poles in Jedwabne were smeared with paint, there was a burglary into the Islam Culture Center in Białystok, someone also tried to arson the flat of Pakistani-Polish marriage in Białystok and many more 'minor' ones.

To be frankly not all of them are sad. Recently and bunch of the Neo-Nazis in Białystok tried to beat a guy from Armenia. Unfortunately for them he was a skilled martial artists and he had a few friends that were skilled too   angel

I didn't know that. I wonder when we'll have road signs in Somali or in Arabic.

As of the topic, Lord have mercy! Hopefully the criminals are caught. Are these just individual incidents or is there larger problems with Neo-Nazis in Poland?

They have been becoming more active for last years.

This may be a little of topic but this thread reminded me of a story I read in the newspaper a couple of years ago. It was about a polish couple who was a part of the neo nazi movement in Poland. They strongly believed that all jews where evil and that they, together with all foreigners should be thrown out of the country, that is until they discivered that they themselves where jewish. Today they live as orthodox jews  Cheesy
