Two young Poles faced libel charges last Friday for anti-Semitic remarks against Israel’s ambassador. The Polish PAP news agency reported on the hearing in the eastern Polish city of Bialystok. The two men were part of a group that barged into a book-signing by Israel’s ambassador to Poland, Shevach Weiss, in September 2002, yelling “stop Jewish interests” and “ambassador of murderers.”
