A right-wing Polish newspaper ran a front page article this week telling its readers “how to recognize a Jew.”

The national weekly Talk Polska, or Only Poland, ran the article next to its featured story, which ran under the headline “Attack on Poland at a conference in Paris,” as reported by the Jewish Telegraphic Agency.

The “how to recognize a Jew” article lists “names, anthropological features, expressions, appearances, character traits, methods of operation” and even “disinformation activities” that the newspaper is purporting can be used to identify a Jewish person.

The Telegraphic Agency noted the paper is published by nationalist political candidate and prominent musician Leszek Bubl.

The paper was seen at the Polish Parliament's lower house, the Sejm, Wednesday morning and sparked criticism among lawmakers.

Andrzej Grzegrzolka, the director of the Sejm Information Center, said the center was requesting that the paper be removed.

Europe has been dealing with rash of anti-Semitism in recent years. According to a European Union study released in December, more than a third of European Jews have considered leaving their home amid rising safety concerns.
