Oliver Stone: Apology #2 to ADL

New York, NY, July 28, 2010 … In response to the Anti-Defamation League's (ADL) statement saying his initial apology was insufficient, especially his comments about the power of the Jewish lobby, filmmaker Oliver Stone communicated directly with Abraham H. Foxman, the League's National Director.

 

He said, "I do agree that it was wrong of me to say that Israel or the pro-Israel lobby is to blame for America's flawed foreign policy.  Of course that's not true and I apologize that my inappropriately glib remark has played into that negative stereotype."

 

Mr. Stone also added, "I want you to know that I am categorically opposed to anti-Semitism – and all other racist ideologies."

 

Mr. Foxman welcomed the apology, saying, "I believe he now understands the issues and where he was wrong, and this puts an end to the matter."
