Tzipi Livni, one of Israel’s major politicians, has cancelled her visit to St. Louis today. Jewish Federation of St. Louis was bringing her here for a private event. We had planned to hold a press conference beforehand. Due to a last minute change, there will be no press conference. Elliott Abrams, Former Special Assistant to President George W. Bush and Senior Director of Democracy, Human Rights and International Operations, will be the speaker now at the private event.
