Israel has branded German poet Günter Grass "persona non grata", amid calls he be stripped of his Nobel Prize. But did Grass really inflame hatred against the Israeli people, or has he fallen victim to the politicization of taste?
A prominent German writer and Nobel Prize-winner Gunter Grass has been declared persona non grata by Israel - following harsh criticism for his new poem published last week. In his latest work Germany's most famous living author accused Israel of endangering world peace in its standoff with Iran - his work was condemned at home and in Israel. Joining us now from Tel Aviv to discuss the scandal is Gideon Levy - who's a columnist for Israeli newspaper Haaretz.
