Poland's defense minister credits Protocols

WARSAW — Poland’s new defense minister has asserted that the anti-Semitic Protocols of the Elders of Zion is true.

Macierewicz, a former member of Poland’s anti-communist opposition movement and deputy defense minister, is known for his efforts to purge the country’s military intelligence services of communist and Russian influence.

In Sweden, immigration debate dominatesSTOCKHOLM, Sweden — Avid dog walkers are taking their routine morning stroll through a hilly park in Kungsholmen (“the king’s city”) in mid-October. Pockets of women function like maps for late arrivals. “Have you seen so-and-so?” “Over there.” Dogs attached to accommodatingly comfortable leashes bark hello to canine acquaintances. Red-cheeked and variously aged, these women are occasionally joined by male counterparts. Their familiarity with one another ranges from pet anecdot...
