Andrew Anglin, the American blogger who runs the neo-Nazi Daily Stormer website, told an Israeli television channel on Tuesday night that he supported Prime Minister Benjamin Netanyahu's son Yair for having posted a meme laden with anti-Semitic imagery.

"I stand with Yair and his memes," Anglin told Channel 2 in a video call that the channel said they edited down to remove offensive, hateful comments, "and I'm glad to see that there's an alt-right in Israel who are standing against the corrosive influence in the West of the Jewish people." The term "alt-right" is employed by certain white supremacy groups to describe themselves.

"I'm defending Yair Netanyahu because he stood up against the Jews," Anglin said. In response to Yair's posted meme, the Daily Stormer's main banner switched to one praising the prime minister's son with the text, "The World's #1 Yair Netanyahu fansite." The meme the 26-year-old shared posits that a conspiracy is behind his family’s growing legal problems, with the attorney general having announced he was disposed to indicting Yair's mother Sara the preceding day.

Anglin is currently in hiding from the lawyers of a Montana woman who sued Anglin in April for allegedly having orchestrated an anti-Semitic online trolling campaign against her family. Nearly three months later, her attorneys are still trying to find him to serve him.

Anglin continued in his defense of the young man: "Yair is the one that's under attack here. I mean, the man cannot be judged by his father. The man is being attacked by everyone in the world. All the American Jews are coming out and attacking him. All these leftist Israeli papers are calling him an anti-Semite, and what he is doing: Standing up against George Soros and the liberal Jews."

"I've just become informed that there is a Jewish-Israeli alt-right. I'm happy about this. I'm happy to see this; they're using some of our memes that's [sic] based on our movement," Anglin added. "They are bothered, sick of the same people in the same way."
