Polish Concentration Camps and blaming just Poles for Jedwabne

The phrase "Polish concentration camp" and its variations are used widely on the Internet. The search reveals more than 550 web sites
http://tinyurl.com/c9suc and in the news http://tinyurl.com/c5phx

Here is an interesting article addressing the issue:
http://www.szukamypolski.com/rzezniaang.php

Rzeczpospolita gathers signatures under the appeal against the use of the phrase: http://rzeczpospolita.pl/akcja/0,0.html
I am not sure what good will do just adding signature, but some people might want do do it. I signed that page reluctantly, because I would prefer something to be done, not just talked about. It seems that the problem is dragging too long. Please see the article on the same subject in the same Rzeczpospolita in 1998! Why is it taking so long? http://www.poloniasf.org/english/article9801n01.php

Polish Ministry of Foreign Affairs made its own action:
http://www.msz.gov.pl/AGAINST,„POLISH,CAMPS”,2076.html
Maybe it is a good time now to join all forces and do something to defend Polish Nation's good name. Certainly, the below described event does not help.

I think this sentence endorsed by the Polish Consulate in Los Angeles should be questioned:
" ..... massacre at Jedwabne, where a community of Polish Christians murdered their Jewish neighbors."

The full article, otherwise very positive about Poland is here:
http://groups.yahoo.com/group/PoloniaSF-Forum/message/139

I would expect the Consulate to push more objective poit of view, i. e. the new book by Marek Chodakiewicz (item 2 in the below link):
http://groups.yahoo.com/group/PoloniaSF-Forum/message/123
I also recommend it to Ted Taube. Please look at the Jedwabne tragedy not only from one sided position. Chodakiewicz's point of view should not be ignored because there is a lot of maticulous research done by this reputable historian. He is an advisor appointed by the United States President to share his expertise with Museum of Holocaust in Washington D.C.
