US Urges Morsi to Repudiate Venomous Anti-Semitic Remarks


The United States on Tuesday condemned the venomous anti-Semitic remarks made by Egypt's Islamist President Mohamed Morsi prior to his election, and urged him to immediately clarify his views.

"The language that we've seen is deeply offensive," State Department spokeswoman Victoria Nuland said, adding, "We think that these comments should be repudiated, and they should be repudiated firmly."
