An Israeli paper says Prime Minister Benjamin Netanyahu's son has posted disparaging comments about Arabs and Muslims on his Facebook page.
The daily Haaretz found that earlier this year 19-year-old Yair Netanyahu posted that Muslims "celebrate hate and death." He wrote after Palestinians were accused of killing five members of an Israeli family that "terror has a religion and it is Islam," according to the paper.
Haaretz also reported Friday that after ethnic clashes in 2008, Yair called for a boycott of Arab businesses.
A lawyer for the Netanyahu family, David Shimron, said the comments were those of a "teenager" and were "taken out of context in an attempt to defame the prime minister and his family." Haaretz said the comments were quickly removed.
