Italian PM Praises Israel


Italian Prime Minister Silvio Berlusconi said before the Knesset plenum on Wednesday that Italy will stand by Israel in its fight for security. “We are fighting and will continue to fight together with you against every instance of anti-Semitism in Europe and around the world, and we will also stand with you in Israel’s struggle for peace and security… Liberals around the world see your state as a positive, aching and proud symbol of a proud history that tells of justice and progress against evil. We, the free and liberal people of the world thank you for your very existence.”
