PM Netanyahu Gives Delayed Response To Neo-Nazi Rally, Son Sides With Trump’s Approach

3

On Tuesday evening, Prime Minister Benjamin Netanyahu broke his silence on the issue, tweeting that he was “outraged by expressions of anti-Semitism, neo-Nazism and racism. Everyone should oppose this hatred.”

Yet on Wednesday morning, his son Yair dismissed the threat from “neo nazis scums” in a Facebook post, and slammed the left-wing protesters at Charlottesville instead.

“To put things in perspective. I’m a Jew, I’m an Israeli, the neo nazis scums in Virginia hate me and my country. But they belong to the past. Their breed is dying out,” the younger Netanyahu wrote. “However the thugs of Antifa and BLM who hate my country (and America too in my view) just as much are getting stronger and stronger and becoming super dominant in American universities and public life.”
