Moshe Smilansky (1874-1953) was a Zionist writer and Labor leader who immigrated to Palestine in 1890. He wrote under the Arabic pen name, Abu Hawaja.
Meir Smilansky was his brother. Some sources say that Ze'ev Smilansky was his nephew, but this article, which seems well-informed, says that they were brothers. Yizhar Smilansky was, therefore, a relative - either his nephew or his great-nephew.
