Neo-Nazi immigrants detained in Israel

[JURIST] Israeli police have detained a group of around 20 young neo-Nazis who originally immigrated to Israel from the former Soviet Union. The group was discovered after police last month arrested one of the young men [JURIST report], a soldier in the Israeli army, on drug charges and discovered neo-Nazi material on his computer during a search and a swastika tattoo on his arm. Because there is no specific Israeli law forbidding neo-Nazi beliefs or activities in the Jewish state, authorities are unsure how to proceed in the case. MosNews has more.
