Have You been wondering why the "liberal" pro-Zionist circles in the West haven´t been attacking Italy after the last election result and why they haven´t vehemently protested against its new "fascist"-influenced government, the way Joerg Haider´s Austria was attacked the year before?
Well, here comes an article from Israel that will shed some light on this discrepancy and explain why Zionists and their state of Israel suddenly don´t make their voices heard "against neo-fascism" the way they are known to do.
The article below was published in the Israeli newspaper The Jerusalem Post, Internet edition, on May 16, 2001. Underlines below have been added by Radio Islam:
Italian PM-elect 'good for Israel'
By Herb Keinon
(May16) - Italian Prime Minister-elect Silvio Berlusconi is considered a good friend of Israel who could very well place Italy alongside Germany and Britain as Israel's strongest supporters in the EU, diplomatic officials said yesterday.
Berlusconi visited Israel at the invitation of the Foreign Ministry for the first time last year as the head of the opposition, and - according to one official - told then prime minister Ehud Barak and then regional cooperation minister Shimon Peres that if he was elected, Italy and Israel would enjoy a closer relationship than at any time since the founding of the state.
The official said that although comments leaders make when they head the opposition are often not given to implementation when they become heads of government, Berlusconi does have a positive emotional reflex to Israel.
The official noted that the Italians - who ban nuclear energy - are dependent on Algeria, Libya, and Iran for their oil needs, and have close business ties with those countries.
According to this official, the visit Berlusconi made to Yad Vashem last year had a major impact on him. The official said that after the visit Berlusconi was "in shock and speechless," and asked to return to his hotel room to absorb what he saw rather than go on to tour other sites in Jerusalem.
Berlusconi said at the time that he would have to return to Israel with his family, so his children could "understand the historical significance of the country."
The official said that since the pro-Arab positions of prime minister Giulio Andreotti in the late 1980s, and especially since the government of Romano Prodi in 1996, Italy has moved toward a more balanced approach on the conflict. Since the violence began, he said, Italy has kept a low profile, and in private conversations have shown balance and even an understanding of Israel's position.
The official said that Berlusconi was "a friend" of Israel when he served seven months as Italian prime minister in 1994, but that that term was too short for him to make any discernible impact on Israeli-Italian relations.
Regarding Berlusconi's coalition with the far-right Northern League and with the National Alliance, a centrist party whose roots are in the fascist movement, the official said that these parties should not be confused with those like Joerg Haider's Freedom Party in Austria.
Neither the Northern League nor the National Alliance is anti-Semitic, the official said, and in fact the National Alliance is considered among the most pro-Israel party in any European parliament.
A Foreign Ministry spokesman said that the ministry will not comment on the elections until all the votes are counted. Nevertheless, Zalman Shoval, an informal foreign affairs adviser to Prime Minister Ariel Sharon and head of the Likud's foreign relations department, sent Berlusconi a congratulatory letter, saying: "We look forward to a period of close and fruitful cooperation between our countries and parties."
In another issue of The Jersalem Post Internet Edition, in the Jewish World section, an article was published on June 20th, 2001, under the heading "Italian Jews divided on Berlusconi gov't", by the Jewess Ruth E. Gruber.
In the article it revealed:
"On the one hand, Berlusconi's new administration probably will be the most pro-Israel government in Italy in years. Defense Minister Antonio Martino, for example, is vice president of the Italian Friends of Israel association."
Commentary by Radio Islam:
Again we can see that what is usually is labelled as "pro-fascism" or "neo-fascism" is quite alright, as long as its followers are pro-Zionists and friends of the Zionist Apartheid state of "Israel". The Zionist source in the above mentioned article even admits that the Italian "National Alliance is considered among the most pro-Israel party in any European parliament".
One thus realizes that the reason for the Zionists (failed) attack unto Austria, the passed year, was because they knew that Joerg Haider was no friend of Israel and its policies and that he would not be prone to bow to Jewish pressures.
