Poland's prime minister canceled plans for his country to send a delegation to meeting in Jerusalem on Monday after the acting Israeli foreign minister Israel Katz said that Poles collaborated with the Nazis and sucked anti-Semitism from their mothers' milk . Michael Sohn / AP Photo Szynkowski vel Sek said it was up to Israel to choose the form the apology takes and how it is delivered. Deputy Foreign Minister Szymon Szynkowski vel Sek said the shameful, scandalous and slanderous comments by the Israeli minister, Israel Katz, require an unequivocal and definite reaction. He said more education is needed about what happened during World War II on Polish soil. The mothers' milk remark repeated a 1989 comment by Israel's then-prime minister, Yitzhak Shamir, which drew condemnation at the time as well. Katz said Sunday, his first as Israel's acting foreign minister, that Poles collaborated with Nazi Germans during the war and sucked anti-Semitism with their mothers' milk. ( As reported in the news.
