Very fast? Folks are flipping out at the speed in which the world is descending into madness. 'How could this happen? All of a sudden the evil doers are taking over!' It is not sudden - it has been slow and steady, drip, drip drip - regular readers of Atlas saw this coming long ago and it's only going to get worse. Much worse.
The Times quotes Jewish community leaders in Italian capital as saying trades union proposal to 'identify and boycott' Jewish-owned shops was reminiscent of anti-Semitic racial laws adopted by Mussolini.
Jewish community leaders in Rome expressed outrage over a trades union proposal to "identify and boycott" Jewish-owned shops in the Italian capital in protest of Israel's operation in Gaza, The Times reported Thursday.
The proposal was put forward by Giancarlo Desiderati, leader of the Flaica-Uniti-Cub union, which represents 8000 shop assistants in Rome, the report said.
According to the London-based newspaper, Gianni Alemanno, the mayor of Rome, condemned the boycott call, and Jewish leaders said it was reminiscent of the anti-Semitic racial laws adopted seventy years ago by the Fascist dictatorship of Benito Mussolini in imitation of Nazi Germany, under which only "Aryan" shops were allowed to open.
