Poland: Ultra-right members arrested for planning terrorist attack days after ultra-right march in the capital
Ultra-right advocates in Poland have been planning a terrorist attack along the lines of the attack committed by Anders Behring Breivik in Norway almost a decade ago. The targets were meant to be Muslims.
Czech news server manipulátoři.cz reported the news last week. Officers with Poland's Agency for Internal Security have arrested two alleged terrorists who are accused of preparing to commit the attacks with the aid of explosives.
The suspects were arrested in Warsaw and in Szczecin. Polish television station TVP reported that police found explosives in the alleged perpetrators' possession that they subsequently had to destroy at a military training facility.
"The arrests are a consequence of information accumulated by the Agency for Internal Security. The [alleged terrorists'] aim was to intimidate people of the Islamic religion residing in Poland," Stanisław Żaryn, a spokesperson for the agency, told news server Onet.pl.
TVP reported that in addition to explosives, firearms were also meant to be used in the attack. Members of the ultra-right had held a march through the capital, Warsaw, on Monday, 11 November.
"A great Poland, a Catholic one!" one of the main organizers, Robert Bąkiewicz, shouted into the microphone at the beginning of the march. During his sharp appearance, he criticized the leadership of Warsaw's Museum of the History of the Polish Jews and what he called "neo-Marxist elites".
Bąkiewicz also criticized the Catholic Church itself, alleging that it does not have enough "courage", and also declaring that left-wing media and political elites are concealing what he alleged was "the fact that Jews want to despoil our homeland". "We want God," he thundered at the close of his appearance.
