Anyone who uses Nazi name-calling or symbols in public will be fined NIS 100,000, according to a bill approved by the Ministerial Committee on Legislation on Monday.

The proposal, by MK Uri Ariel (National Union), came after a recent protest by haredi [ultra-Orthodox] groups, in which demonstrators dressed in concentration camp uniforms and wore yellow stars on their clothing.

Ariel pointed out that his bill does not differentiate between rioters in Bil’in, “price tag” attackers or haredim that “cynically and inappropriately” use Nazi imagery.
