Polish diplomats in New York canceled a speech by a prominent Jewish critic of Israel. The speech by historian and author Tony Judt on the Israel lobby was canceled just hours before it was to take place at the Polish consulate in New York. Consulate spokesmen told the New York Sun they canceled the talk because it was inconsistent with their warm relations with Israel.
