The awful former head of the Shas party has issued a mea culpa
for that vulgar attack he made
on the Likud:
Shas's Arye Deri apologized on Friday for ethnically-charged comments he made a day earlier, in which he called Likud-Beytenu 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."
He added that he made the comments under pressure, and that he had never spoken about his "brothers" in such a way because it is not his style.
No, he just couldn't think of anything constructive to say, is all. That's Deri for you. Maybe he could also say he's sorry for the corrupt activities he ran years before, and even for his party's demands that the state pay for running their yeshivas at the taxpayer's expense?
