Deri Apologizes for Racist Comments on Likud Beitenu

Shas's Aryeh Deri apologized on Friday for the comments he made Thursday, calling the Likud-Beitenu a party of "Russians and whites."

Speaking to Gali Israel radio, Deri said, "I apologize fully. It was a grave mistake, this comment on Russians and whites."

“This was a big mistake,” Deri said. “Unfortunately, yesterday, under pressure of the conflict, I didn’t pay attention to my words. I apologize. That’s not my style. I never speak like that. They are my brothers.”
