High Court: Use of word 'Nazi' considered libel

The Supreme Court ruled on Sunday that the word 'Nazi' is considered libel. The court accepted the position of far right wing activist Itamar Ben-Gvir who sued prominent journalist Amnon Dankner for calling him a 'Nazi' on the then-popular television show 'Popolitika' 11 years ago. However, as part of a compromise between the three justices, Dankner was forced to compensate Ben-Gvir in the amount of one shekel. Ben-Gvir filed an appeal after the Jerusalem District Court turned down his claim.
