Netanyahu's office said in a statement that the prime minister, who was in Warsaw for a USA -sponsored Middle East conference, had been misquoted by The Jerusalem Post, which issued a corrected story.

As (former Israeli Prime Minister) Yitzhak Shamir said - his father was murdered by Poles - he said that from his point of view they sucked anti-Semitism with their mothers' milk. Foreign Minister Jacek Czaputowicz had been tapped to attend in his place.
