The Anti-Defamation League (ADL) has accepted Academy Award-winning director Oliver Stone's second apology over comments he made about Jewish influence on US media.

“I do agree that it was wrong of me to say that Israel or the pro-Israel lobby is to blame for America’s flawed foreign policy.  Of course that’s not true and I apologize that my inappropriately glib remark has played into that negative stereotype," the director said.

In a statement released Wednesday night, ADL national director Abraham Foxman welcomed the apology, saying, “I believe he now understands the issues and where he was wrong, and this puts an end to the matter.”
