In Poland the Sejm ("Listen," lower house of parliament in the Republic of Poland) votes to ban the manufacture of religious objects of one faith by adherents of a different faith (except when the objects are designated for export). The law is worded broadly, but it's intended solely to prevent Jews from manufacturing Catholic religious objects.

Deputy Downar, a Roman Catholic Priest who sponsors the bill, says:

"The present situation is an insult to our religious and national sentiments and contributes to the antagonism between Jews and Poles.

We want Catholic religious objects to be manufactured only by Catholics since the Jew is not in a position to manufacture correctly such objects which he can neither understand nor have any feeling for.

To ask of us to look calmly upon the increasing domination of our economic life by Jews would be suicidal humanitarianism."
