"Nobel Prize-winning writer Gunter Grass has criticised Israel for "endangering the already fragile world peace".
Mr Grass, 84, is known for his left-wing political views. In a poem published in the German newspaper Sueddeutsche Zeitung, he expressed concern that Israel "could wipe out the Iranian people" if it took action against Tehran's nuclear ambitions.
The anti-war writer, who was at the centre of a controversy in 2006 after it emerged that he had served in the Waffen SS during the Holocaust, said in the poem that he was "tired of Western hypocrisy". He said he had remained silent on Israel for years because of his past."
Remained silent? You know what? Former Nazis need to keep their mouths shut when it comes to lecturing Jews about anything. You don't have a moral leg to stand on.
