Salvini declared, “Jerusalem, as far as I am concerned, was, is, and will forever be the capital of the state of Israel.”
RAIR Foundation Matteo Salvini, leader of the Lega party, organized an international conference: ‘The new forms of anti-Semitism’ in Rome on January 16th, 2020. Salvini held the conference days before world leaders will gather in Jerusalem to commemorate the 75th anniversary of the liberation of Auschwitz at an event entitled “Remembering the Holocaust: Fighting Antisemitism.”
In a video translated exclusively for RAIR Foundation USA, Matteo praised President Trump for his leadership on moving the US Embassy to Jerusalem and discusses methods for combating rising antisemitism along with Austria.
Salvini also attacked both the European Union and the United Nations for their systemic bias against the Jewish state.
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 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’.
