Italy's Meloni meets Jewish groups, decries antisemitism

Italy's Meloni meets Jewish groups, decries antisemitism Italian PM stresses 'essential importance of Jewish community for Italian identity' amid fears her far-right Fratelli d'Italia party will assume hostile approach toward Jews

Meloni's office issued a readout of the meeting as the premier seeks to distance her far-right Brothers of Italy party, which has its roots in a post-World War II neofascist movement, from Italy's anti-Jewish racial laws and the suppression of democracy under Fascist dictator Benito Mussolini.

"There is the need for a strong and more incisive common commitment to combat every form of antisemitism, a phenomenon in worrisome growth including on the web and social networks."
Meloni underlined the "essential importance of Jewish communities for the Italian and European national identity."
