I dig this guy .......... everyone assumes he is talking about Hitler. But frankly, Ahmadjihad and the murdering nazi Mufti are more appropriate comparisons.
Hitler and the Mufti, cut from the same evil.
Berlusconi is unique. The left says terrible things of the Italian PM. They deride him because ....he loves women. I am down with that. Kevin Jennnigs and all that jazz is OK, but a virile hetero? No go.
Clearly Berlusconi is no dhimmi. Or a follower of "political correctness." We need more of this.
The article is a refreshing gust of air in an Europe stenching of appeasement. (hat tip QK)
During visit, Berlusconi draws parallel between Ahmadinejad and Hitler
Italian Prime Minister Silvio Berlusconi drew a connecting line yesterday between his visit to the Yad Vashem Holocaust Museum in Jerusalem, the Iranian nuclear program, and Iranian President Mahmoud Ahmadinejad's denial of the Holocaust and calls for Israel's destruction.
"We must watch out," the visiting premier said. "We've already had one such madman in history."
Berlusconi also said his great dream is for Israel to join the European Union.
I love this man.
Speaking at a welcoming ceremony hosted by Prime Minister Benjamin Netanyahu shortly after his arrival in Israel, the Italian leader said he would like to his visit produce "a shared commitment to work together for the future."
"I hope that all of us together can look forward to a future of prosperity, and mostly of peace for your people, whose existence is still doubted by someone whom we all wish to oppose," he added.
In response to the Italian leader's statement, Netanyahu said that "Rome and Jerusalem laid the foundations of Western civilization. Thus it is important for Italy and Israel to stand beside each other, determined to defend our future and our cultures."
Netanyahu also said he intends to deepen the ties between the two countries. During Berlusconi's visit, the two countries plan to sign a series of agreements for cooperation in various fields of activity.
