On Tuesday’s radio show, Beck compared rabbis of Reform Judaism to radical Islam. Yesterday, he called it one of the “worst analogies of all time.” But he did add, “I don’t agree with Abe Foxman… on anything… but on this one he’s right.”
“Glenn Beck has shown that he understands how his remarks were offensive and out of line,” says Foxman. “We welcome his words of apology and consider the matter closed.”
Beck to Foxman: “I blew it on this one…” (Letter after the jump)
I just wanted to write to you personally and thank you for bringing to my attention the inaccurate comments I made on Tuesday. I was admittedly misinformed on Reform Rabbis and made a horrible analogy that I immediately attempted to clarify–quite honestly, I blew it on this one. When I believe I’m right, I am always willing to defend my ground. But, when I make a mistake, I hope you understand that I am willing to say so. It is why I led my show today with an admission that I was wrong and an apology to everyone I offended–within Reform Judaism and throughout the Jewish community.
