Writer Amos Oz calls Israeli vandals ‘Hebrew neo-Nazis’

Israel’s best known writer, Amos Oz, says that Israelis behind a wave of hate crimes against Muslims and Christian are “Hebrew neo-Nazis,” Haaretz newspaper reported on its website Saturday.

It quoted the award-winning author as saying terms such as “price tag,” widely used to describe attacks on Palestinians and others by Jewish extremists, are sanitised euphemisms.

They are “sweet names for a monster that needs to be called what it is: Hebrew neo-Nazi groups,” Haaretz quoted Oz as telling guests Friday at an event marking his 75th birthday.
