Michael Oren takes on 'boycotting' author Oz for shunning Foreign Ministry events

The decision by Amos Oz, one of Israel's most celebrated authors, to shun events staged by the Foreign Ministry has drawn the ire of the former ambassador to the US and freshman parliamentarian Michael Oren.
Oren, who joined Moshe Kahlon's Kulanu list prior to the most recent election, said on Friday that Oz's decision to stay away from officially sanctioned events amounts to a de facto boycott of Israel.
"The boycott which Amos Oz has declared on the Foreign Ministry provides a boost to the boycotts which Oz claims to oppose," Oren said.
