ADL Says Oliver Stone's Apology 'Insufficient'
Update: July 28, 2010: In a direct communication to ADL, Oliver Stone said he was wrong to say that Israel or the pro-Israel lobby is to blame for America's flawed foreign policy. The League welcomed the apology. More>>
New York, NY, July 28, 2010 … The Anti-Defamation League (ADL) today said Oliver Stone's apology for his anti-Jewish remarks stops short and that he needs to fully repudiate all of his conspiratorial anti-Semitic statements about Jews.
Abraham H. Foxman, ADL National Director, issued the following statement:
Oliver Stone's apology stops short and is therefore insufficient.
While he now admits that Jews do not control Hollywood, the media and other industries, he ignores his assertion that Jews are "...the most powerful lobby in Washington" and that "Israel has f***** up United States foreign policy." This is another conspiratorial anti-Semitic canard that Mr. Stone needs to repudiate.
