MK Suggests 'Modern Antisemite' Prize for Amos Oz

MK Shuli Moallem (Jewish Home) reacted Sunday to an incendiary statement by famed writer Amos Oz, who said that the “hilltop youth” of Judea and Samaria, and the perpetrators of Price Tag vandalism, are “Jewish neo-Nazis.”

"The lawbreaking youths who need to be punished had a grandfather and grandmother in the concentraion camps and the death camps, too,” said Moallem. “A grandfather and grandmother who longed for a Jewish state and certainly would not have been proud of their grandchildren's actions. Your choice of words, Amos, is not proper, and the comparison is demeaning in itself.”
