Incitement for me but not for thee?

The 'settlers' council' has filed a police complaint for incitement against Leftist icon Amos Oz after Oz referred to 'hilltop youth' as neo-Nazis. They expect Oz to be arrested 'within hours' as happened earlier this week to a Yitzhar woman who advocated throwing stones at Arabs and IDF soldiers. Somehow, I don't think Oz will be arrested....
Representatives of the Binyamin and Samaria Residents Council filed a complaint with the Israel Police against Amos Oz on Sunday, following the author's comments that "hilltop youth" were "neo-Nazis", Channel 2 reported.

"The writer's words are serious incitement to racial hatred, and for that he deserves the Nobel Prize in racism," said the Council.

Executive Director Sagi Keisler said that he expects that police will arrest Oz in the coming hours.

"Following the precedent of Eliraz Fein from Yitzhar, who wrote similarly unsavory things in the settlement's internal forum and was arrested immediately afterwards, the police can't ignore the writer's grave incitement," he said.

Fein was arrested last week after she published a statement online reading “I am in favor of throwing rocks (at Jews, in terms of Arabs there of course isn’t any question), even in a situation where the rock kills a soldier!!!”

Oz, an Israel Prize laureate, came out strongly against perpetrators of “price tag” attacks on Friday, saying that “‘price tag’ and ‘hilltop youth’ are cute nicknames for a monster that needs to be called what it is: Hebrew neo-Nazi groups.”
Really.... Can you see the Leftist Israeli prosecutors not having one standard for the Left and another for the Right?
