Amos Oz: I Said Neo-Nazis, not Nazis


Famed writer Amos Oz refused Sunday to take back the comparison he made between Jewish perpetrators of Price Tag vandalism and neo-Nazis. "The comparison I made on Friday is to neo-Nazis and not to Nazis,” he said in an interview on IDF Radio.

“Nazis erect crematoria and gas chambers. Neo-Nazis desecrate places of worship, beat innocent people and spray paint racist slogans. That is what our neo-Nazis do. I did not say Nazis.”
