The real Salvini. For War, for Israel, for Netanyahu
Salvini thanks Trump for taking out Soleimani
Iranian general was an ‘Islamic terrorist’ says League leader
03 January 2020
(ANSA) – Rome, January 3 – Matteo Salvini, the leader of Italy’s rightwing League party, on Friday welcomed US President Donald Trump’s decision to order the attack in the area of Baghdad airport in which Iranian general Qassem Soleimani was killed.
“Free women and men, faced with the silence of the cowards in Italy and the European Union, I must thank Trump and America’s democracy for having eliminated one of the world’s most dangerous, ruthless men,” Salvini said.
“An Islamic terrorist, an enemy of the West, of Israel, of rights and of freedom”.

Marine Le Pen: For Israel, for War, for Netanyahu
L’assassinat de Qassem Soleimani divise le Rassemblent national
Au sein du parti de Marine Le Pen, la crise entre Iran-USA ravive le clivage entre les pro-russes et les pro-Américains.
En faisant exécuter le puissant général Qassem Soleimani, Donald Trump a pris tout le monde de court. En France, l’Élysée a attendu le milieu de l’après-midi avant de communiquer sur cet acte de guerre, après un entretien téléphonique entre Emmanuel Macron et Vladimir Poutine. Au Rassemblement national, où le président américain est autant apprécié que son homologue russe, la prudence était la même.
Peu avant 14 heures ce vendredi 3 janvier, Marine Le Pen a diffusé un communiqué appelant à la “reprise du dialogue” entre les belligérants. Un texte mesuré dans lequel la députée du Pas-de-Calais estime que la décision de Donald Trump sonne comme “un avertissement” à l’égard de Téhéran.

An unlikely union: Israel and the European far right
Israel has been engaging far-right groups and parties across Europe, ignoring their anti-Semitism.
by Ramzy Baroud & Romana Rubeo
In November 2017, the Zionist Organization of America (ZOA) hosted a gala dinner in New York City honouring Stephen Bannon, US President Donald Trump‘s then-chief strategist.
That Bannon and his media outlet Breitbart News were, and still are, seen by many as anti-Semitic was of no consequence to Zionist leaders from the US and Israel, who were in attendance.
There were, however, some critical voices from within the Jewish community who denounced the ZOA for its decision to invite Bannon. One of them was former Jerusalem Post editor-in-chief Bret Stephens, who dedicated a column in the New York Times on the issue.

Blaming European anti-Semitism on Palestinians and Muslims
The German and Austrian far right is incorporating Zionism into ultranationalism to whitewash its bloody past.
by Denijal Jegic
In November 2018, a conference entitled Europe beyond anti-Semitism and anti-Zionism: Securing Jewish life in Europe, organised by Austria’s right-wing government, was held in the Austrian capital, Vienna. The one-day event wrapped up with the issuing of a final communique which stressed that Austria is committed to “fighting every form of anti-Semitism and anti-Zionism” and claimed that “anti-Semitism is nowadays oftentimes manifest in exaggerated and disproportionate criticism against Israel.”
While it was acknowledged during the conference that only a few Austrians had opposed the Nazi regime and many had supported its crimes, the message the Austrian government wanted to send was that it stands by the Israeli claims that criticism of Israel is anti-Semitic.
