Peretz accepts Herzog's apology over apparent racist remark

MK Amir Peretz accepted clarifications from his fellow Labor leadership candidate, MK Isaac Herzog on Thursday, a day after the Ha'aretz newspaper published a racist quote from Herzog that Wikileaks alleged he said to an American diplomat.
The Wikileaks document quoted Peretz telling American diplomat Robert Danin during the 2006 election campaign that Peretz, who was Labor's candidate for prime minister, was perceived as "an aggressive, inexperienced, Moroccan" but that Labor's list for the Knesset had Ashkenazim that balanced out the Sephardim.
