There are dozens more neo-Nazis in Israel, and police are working on finding them, Israel Police Insp.-Gen. David Cohen said on Monday, two days after police announced they had uncovered a neo-Nazi ring in Petah Tikva composed of former-Soviet Union immigrants. At a pre-Rosh Hashana toast at the police's national headquarters, Cohen said that a number of neo-Nazi Web sites have been operating in Israel over the past few years, but that this was still not a widespread phenomenon, Israel Radio reported. Public Security Minister Avi Dichter reiterated at the toast that Israel should not hurry to change the Law of Return, which permitted the neo-Nazi youths to enter Israel, and that it was important to examine the matter very carefully. "Israeli society must ask not only where these youths made a mistake, but also where we made a mistake in absorbing them and in their education," he said.
