Recently ousted as Deputy Prime Minister in a Merkel-santioned coup by Italian Left Wing parties, League Party leader, Matteo Salvini, is predicted to easily win the next election for Prime Minister.
RAIR Foundation As leader of the League party, Salvini organized an international conference on ‘The new forms of anti-Semitism’ in Rome on January 16th, 2020. Salvini attacked both the European Union and the United Nations for their systemic bias against the Jewish state.
He has classified people who want to “wipe out Israel” as adversaries and argued that the capital of the state of Israel must be Jerusalem, adding that hatred for Israel and the Jewish people has caused too much harm.
Salvini plans to present a resolution “on the Austrian model”, in which the political force will demand “outlawing the anti-Israel and anti-Semitic BDS movement for the boycott of Israel.”
He has also supported American President Donald Trump, who in December 2017 recognized Jerusalem as the capital of Israel. “Jerusalem will have to be the capital of Israel for me,” said the League leader.
Salvini also spoke about the cases in which Jews are called “today’s Nazis”.
‘The anti-Semitism of a certain right and a certain left is our enemy. We have a duty to fight those who say that the Jews are the Nazis of today: they think it in the Islamic world but also in a certain parts of Europe. An EU that denies Jewish roots of Christians, a UN that dedicates 18 resolutions against Israel and not one to Iran and Turkey, are a problem.”
