Morsi: Anti-Semitic Remarks 'Taken Out of Context'

Ad Feedback

After coming under fire from the Obama administration, Egyptian President Mohammed Morsi is trying to explain away his racist remarks about Jews in a 2010 speech.

Morsi said his comments calling Jews "bloodsuckers and "descendants of apes and pigs" were aimed at Israeli policies and taken out of context.

The White House called the comments "repulsive" and "deeply offensive."

A congressional delegation to Cairo led by Sen. John McCain, R-Ariz., also expressed disapproval in a meeting with Morsi this week.

Despite the uproar, U.S. leaders are expected approve a $480 million aid package to Egypt.
