President-elect Obama's Chief of Staff Rahm Emanuel has apologized for disparaging remarks made by his father about Arabs.
Benjamin Emanuel spoke about his son to an Israeli newspaper last week, saying, "Obviously, he will influence the president to be pro-Israel. Why wouldn't he? What is he, an Arab? He's not going to clean the floors of the White House."
Rahm Emanuel called the American-Arab Anti-Discrimination Committee Thursday to apologize, saying "These are not the values upon which I was raised or those of my family." End Quote
