Poland's president assured the Israeli ambassador Wednesday that anti-Semitism has "no chance" in Poland, responding to Jewish anxieties over a new coalition that includes a nationalist party with a far-right youth wing, the presidential office said. President Lech Kaczynski met with Israeli Ambassador David Peleg on Wednesday afternoon to address concerns over the coalition with the League of Polish Families, a nationalist and Catholic party with the radical, right-wing All-Polish Youth group. "Mr. Kaczynski guaranteed that there is no space for anti-Semitism in Poland," Andrzej Krawczyk, the president's undersecretary of state, told The Associated Press. All-Polish Youth members have been known to make Nazi salutes and chant "Sieg Heil" during street protests. The group also has attacked gay and women's rights marches in past years.
