Polish prosecutors are analyzing audio tapes that allegedly feature a powerful priest making anti-Semitic remarks and calling the president's wife a "witch," a spokeswoman said Thursday. Prosecutors in the central city of Torun received tapes on Tuesday from the weekly magazine Wprost of a lecture by the Rev. Tadeusz Rydzyk, who runs a conservative media empire that includes the Roman Catholic station Radio Maryja, spokeswoman Ewa Janczur said. Wprost last month published excerpts and posted audio clips on its Web site from the lecture Rydzyk allegedly delivered this spring at a journalism school he established in Torun, where Radio Maryja is headquartered. On the tapes, Rydzyk allegedly was caught suggesting that Jews are greedy and Polish President Lech Kaczynski is subservient to Jewish lobbyists. He also allegedly criticized the first lady's support for abortion rights, called her a "witch," and suggested she should kill herself.
